Just curious about the other weird stuff that happened to people.
I have two I'd like to share.

Weird Con Moment #1) I was wearing my Atashi costume, so I was dressed as this gigantic fuzzy lacy pink monstrosity with enormous ears. To get to the elevators, I had to pass this group of intimidating looking punk/gothish (not pink and fuzzy) people. Not something I'd like to do in an Atashi costume. Anyway, as I walked by, one of them squealed "ATASHI!" and they played with my ears because they're soft.

Weird Con Moment #2) As I was leaving for my break from the dealer's room on Sunday, I felt a hard jab on my shoulder, turned, and was face to face with a Storm Trooper. He turned me to face someone holding a camera. You don't say no to that.

2) Watching Re Death and Nescaflowne. SOOO GREAT. That was a blast, and I was amazed at how many people there were.
3) Der Cosplay. It kicked ass. I looooved the kissing sailor scouts, and the Suzaku 7 as scouts. THAT was hillarious!
4) the dance. ...let's just say I got to know some people veerrrrrryyyyy well. hehehe...
5) the uber hot guy @ the House of Anime booth. I don't even know HOW many times I walked by just to see him. Hehehe...

I thought the con overall was just great. It was the best for me, since it was my first. ^.^ I was so happy I got to meet a bunch of people from the Fanime BB, too. ...<---- well I'll make that memorable moment #6. lol

When tenchi jumped on my back and shouted "Go Chocobo!" so we ran around the cosplay.com gathering a few times, while he vainly tried to kill cosplayers with his sword.

Memorable or weird I don't know how to classify this one. We walk down the stairs from the parking garage, and at the bottom of the stairs theres this girl with her friends she sees us and she bows down to us a couple times and calls us gods. That would be the strangest reaction I have ever gotten to a costume.

My first moment is everyone asking about my liscense plate i had around my neck. The second was on saturday night when i was heading to the elevator someone asked me if i had caught Vash. The interesting part is that i had to tell him "No, he had to go to Lake Tahoe to be with his woman."

Wasn't that a Tidus? I took your picture either way.
I swear that my friend's mom was going to stalk that whole FFX group. Especially the Auron.

Anyway: When I yelled at Tom Root from Anime Insider while in the dealer's room... I thought he was Rob Bricken (the other editor. They look alike, mmkay?) so I yelled "LOOK EVERYBODY IT'S ROB BRICKEN!" He looked at me like I was the plague.
On the way home, I realized that he was Tom Root.

It wasn't all that weird but it sure was memerable. I was walking with some friend to the parking garage and this giant gust of wind blew my petticoat and skirt up for every one to see my undies :) Oh well. Worse has happened.

It would probably be getting a signed schedule of events from the nice folks at the Anime Insider booth :D They called me a weird, strange girl, and told me to put my shoes back on. (What?! My feet hurt!)
