Anime Festival Orlando Day 1: Friday.

The con was a lot of fun. The costumes where absolutely amazing and very intuitive!
(The Jill + Rebecca + Sheva = AWESOMNESS!)

The dealer's room had quite a bit to offer, from kitty tails and blades, to vampire Hunter D Copies and World of Warcraft models.

Things where a bit slow to start, but it all picked up around 4-5 P.M., when everyone showed up at once!

There where little kids beating up older men in the fighting ring,

A VERY interesting showing of Blackjack,

and my interruption of the DBZ Showing, with an "IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAND!" After krillin threw his Destruco-disk. (Which was followed up by a random "WHAT NINE THOUSAND?!")

There was only ONE thing that upset me about this con's Friday.

Not that my jeep overheated,
Or that no one recognized me,

but . . There was NO CARAMEL DANSEN! :confused::hafha::confused:

Feel free to post additives and personal stories of your time here at the Con! :D

Some of the Costumes I saw:

Most above all, The amazing (Soul Eater?) Outfit that someone had worn. They had a massive hammer with them, and a wicked head-band. (awesome.)

FF8 People! OMG AN IRVINE! He was dawdling around the dealer's room when I spotted him walking around with a Slephie. There was also a squall, but that Irvine was just @m@zing.

MGS!! The Box! The Soldier! It was all hilarious! (Some of the things written on the box wheren't meant for mortal eyes.)

Barbie doll? I actually stood behind her in line for a bit, untill she went somewhere else.
I later found her suffocating in a plastic box labeled for Barbie dolls. xD

Yu-Gi-Oh! Kaiba?! That was AWESOME TOO! It was such a great outfit! I loved the card necklace!

Bleach! There was a lot of bleach players there! tons of masks walking about! My friend told one of them their mask was awesome, and he just kinda looked down on him and didn't say anything. :sulk: It was kinda scary, so I stepped away.

Naruto! Lots and LOTS of naruto people! Little kids dressed as Naruto, a few GREAT sakuras, Lots of people in red and black robes. And a Hinata!

Hellsing! Yes! I never see Hellsing cosplayers! Your outfit was great! (Even though the guns where wood!)

TTGL! Oh yeah Dota2008! Me and you ALL THE WAY! Best outfits THERE! Only 2 TTGL's in the whole place! Unless you where all hiding around back! :untrust:

Vandrea! Absolutely epic. I could tell that a lot of time was put into most of those costumes. Tons of detail, great coloring and nice props.

KH! The Heartless was totally epic. That must have been really uncomfortable in that outfit, having to stand like that. But it looks totally worthwhile with all the people who where admiring it. The soras where just as good also! xD

Half-Life! COMPANION CUBE! And Random Aperture Science and Enrichment Center Employee! YESSS!

Although, even in my vast knowledge, There where some costumes I didn't recognize, but still looked amazing. Most notably was the girl with the (Fur armor?) Shoulder pads, mask, face paint, the whole nine yards. I wish I knew what that was from, so I could clearly show my love for that.

Hello all! I was the Selphie with the Irvine, Irvine is Alteclansing on here :3 We're all very glad you thought he was awesome! ^-^ we worked real hard

There were some really nice costumes at this convention *0* I'm from the North and I moved here last year in October and all the conventions I've been too were really super meh compared to the conventions I'm used to like Anime Boston and Otakon, but I have to say AFO redeemed the convention reputation down here for me :] I really enjoyed it! I loved talking to a lot of people an there were so many fun things to do ^_^ I was soooo happy when I saw a Kanji and Yukiko from Persona 4 *0*!! I love that game x3!

There were so many fun things about Friday it's hard to remember! *0*
It's too bad my wig wasn't there on Friday :[

AFO was great this year! If anyone has any pictures of the Miwako & Arashi (myself and my cosplaying partner/loverboy) please let me know! About a million people took our picture but it doesn't look like anyone posted them online!

Also Champuro, my friend Michael Iacca took some professional photos I saw on his camera when he took photos of Irvine and I. I can get you into contact with him if you don't have his info if you'd like :D

The best place to look is on Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=afo+09&search_type=&aq=f) and just go through everyone's slideshows, but searching through Deviantart gives some pretty good results, too. Just search for "AFO 09" or "AFO 2009"!


@ExileFayt: Awww - thank you so much! Your costume was absolutely AMAZING. Gravity-defying hair always has a super special place in my heart!

Will do, thank you kindly!

The only thing that makes that somewhat complicated, is no one directly took a picture of me . . .
.
so, if anyone's is looking through your pictures, Would you mind looking for a dark blonde haired simon with a short sleeved shirt in the background? Goggles around my neck? Walking with another person about my height with a black hat on and his hair in a ponytail?

I would GREALTY appreciate it. My eternal grattitude to anyone who finds me.

LOL luckily I cut a large hole in the plastic so I could breath. It was almost too hot to do that cosplay but I'm so glad I did!!

Your costume? Amazing. When I realized you were wearing a Betsey Johnson dress? I pretty much formed a girl-crush on you! The whole idea was great and you executed it so well!

I missed it!! :( We got there after registration closed so I couldn't see it.

does anyone remember seeing a girl dressed in a black komono with a bright purple wig on Sunday? I don't remember what she said her costume was from, but it looked like something from Bleach. I know it wasn't since she said no one recognized her. I was talking to her while in line for the costume contest and didn't catch her name:(
