This talented cameko needs little introduction because you've likely browsed his site numerous times looking for cosplay photos from an event while that convention was still going on. He is none other than Kevin Lillard, the brains and brawn behind A Fan's View, a truly comprehensive web site featuring not only photos of cosplayers, but a complete photo-documentary of many, if not most, of the anime conventions in North America.
After a decade of convention coverage, in 2009, A Fan's View closed it's doors. Many cosplayers enjoyed having their photo taken by the jovial Kevin Lillard, and some were even honored with his Convention Personality of the Week. Even though http://www.fansview.com is gone, it's still important to note his contributions to the influence of Anime and Japanese culture in North America.
Mr. Lillard was the 2012 Momiji Award recipient but was unfortunately unable to attend that year. As such we are even more pleased to have him with us for Anime North 2013.
