I feel that they would be a PERFECT musical guest for ACen 2014. They have such a good history, and they got their start from an anime band!! Now we have the real version, and they're amazing! Their guitarist Riko... is a fan of cosplaying! :3 maybe she would even like attending the convention as a cosplayer too ^.^
It would be really cool to have a band that stemmed from an anime band, attend this anime convention. And I think they would think that'd be really cool too... I mean, they pretty much are like a real life anime band. But all that aside, their music is amazing, and they really would be a perfect musical guest
Here is a photo of the group (And 2 others I don't know) Cosplaying as the members from Sket Dance :3
