Loves to sing, loves to write music, and super excited for Otaku Idol! I never imagined making it this far, but now I'm in it to win it!

Dean Bloomingdale, the 19-year old from Philadelphia, PA, is proud to be returning for his fourth Otakon and his fourth Otaku Idol! After reaching 2nd place last year, Dean is more ready than ever to sing for the Otakon crowd.

Jessica Dawson

Jessica Imani Dawson was raised in the suburbs of Rockland County, NY. From a young age Jessica has shown a great deal of interest in hand-drawn animation such as Disney and Don Bluth. Her real interest in Anime started in 2005 when she stumbled upon Wolf's Rain. Moved by its creativity and style, Jessica decided to further explore the world that Japanese Anime had to offer.


I'm pretty shy, quiet, and not use to stages. But I love singing and trap singing and hope that I'll be able to turn heads this Otaku Idol!

Don Lubben

Don, age 21, is an amateur voice actor, lyricist and singer, but primarily a singer. He has a strong passion for language in general. In particular, he has a great appreciation for the Japanese language, which is by far his favorite language to sing in.

Lauren Collis

Lauren is from Ontario, Canada, here to show everyone what the "true North strong and free" really has to offer-- by winning Otaku Idol!


Poppy is excited to return to Otaku Idol after her debut in 2011. This girl is ready to sing her way to the top and to your heart!


I love singing and have wanted to take part in Otaku Idol since my first Otakon in 2008. I just never had the guts to send in a demo until now. So I'm going to sing my heart out!


I'm vivio and I like singing. It gives me confidence, strength and memories. I always dream to sing on a live stage. Now my dream comes true! I hope my voice will reach you!
