Photos: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/50322/p1_oid Only 10 because I fail and couldn't even get in my bag with my Black Cat gloves on, much less get my camera out and take a picture DX

Con Report (short version): Convention itself sucked, people were great though, made a couple new friends, finally got to meet some people from this site in person, and met some awesome photographers =)

Heres a link to my facebook album everyone! Should be set to public, you don't need a facebook profile to log in.


I was the female hooper with the LED hoop, rikku (I didn't see any others, so I think I'm the only one), and the chick in the chainmail dress.

I didn't take photos but I can review the con.

The location was horrible, too small and cramped, things were on too many different levels with nowhere near enough elevators for the amount of people. I had to walk up/down 11 flights of stairs multiple times throughout the weekend due to waiting too long for an elevator. The viewing rooms were nonexistent and the gaming was barely there (my boyfriend was incredibly disappointed by the "arcade"). The hotel itself was nice, just not big enough. The artist's alley was in an awkward location as was the dealer's room. Events were lacking, with long periods of time with not much going on, and then everything would start all at once so it was hard to get to what you wanted to see. Events were fun but many started over an hour late. Highlights: J-fashion show, lolita tea party, Mary's Blood concert (made it to the very front ^^) While I don't think I'll be going out of my way to listen to Mary's Blood, they put on a fun show. I hope they have a better location next year and work harder on getting things on time. The timing was even worse than last year.

Link to my pics all three days. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152676422150034.1073741825.501720033&type=1&l=8861d4beb9

Con Report: I met awesome people I wanted to see and I had fun getting items signed (especially from Johnny Bosch). I didn't like how disorganized a few things were. For one thing, The pre-show for Eyeshine started much later and the lines were crazy. People were confused which line went first and luckily I went in quick since I was already waiting in line for 2 hours. I felt saturday needed a few things going on in the afternoon before the concert because I was getting bored abit. Also, the console room was small :/ (and I play console games quite often). I also got lost in finding things but luckily a staff person (it was a woman) who kindly help me out. The weapons policy officers took me by surprised since they kind of jump on me without me knowing I had to check with them first.

Also that mini mart next to the Main event room, it was really secluded and hidden because so many people blocked it. i didn't even knew they sold snacks, otherwise I would of raided the place.

Overall, the con was great. I wouldn't say awesome but it was great for me because of the people. thats all.

Hey all! I had a great time. This was my first anime convention, so I only came as a casual photographer and not in costume. I think next time I'll go in a cosplay outfit though!

Here are the pictures I took:


If you want anything hi-res, just message me here or on Flickr and I'll get them to you.

Judging by the number of tags and likes, I think a good number of people have already seen this album but posting it here for any other people who may have missed it.
