Not quite sure. It was fun, yet felt horribly disorganized in a weird way. I do have to say that despite being so small, they've got WAY better artistic vision than SakuraCon when it comes to making con areas look cool (what I'm referring to is the shinto arches at the entrance of each room, which were AWESOME; why the heck doesn't SC ever think of such things?).

Don't forget that my sister dressed as Yachiru, too (btw, I'm the girl who was a Pokemon Fisherman-Gal with the Old Rod & tackle box).

*falls into thread*
I got back today. I'm sad it's over.

I was Girlycard/Alucard... otherwise known as the sole Hellsing cosplayer there, 'cept for my Walter, and one OA Integra I saw.

...but yeah, it was great. Like, beyond belief. It made me fear SakuraCon, now I'm all hyped up on that small con love, and don't want to go somewhere big and crowded. ;-;

So I did my Pony Stalker cosplay from Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu at this con, and some people took pictures of me with Vic Mignogna (he did the voice for it). Anyone know where I can find them?

I only heard about the con in minimal time, so I just pulled together a lolita costume ;_;
I wish I had more time to dye my hair, I really wanted to be misa.
but time and money was short, unfortunatly.
Sakura con will be better >D

Small Con love though, it's amazing.
I can't wait to see it grow TT___TT

oh and by weird chance, does anyone know any Aki- con photo places, like, to post the pictures?
a lot of people were taking pictures of me...
