-Seeing so many wonderful cosplayers! There seemed to be more this year than ever!
-People asking for pics/hugs. For the first time, no one in my cosplay group had a costume damaged by a glomper!
-Having a shuttle available. That's a first at the Cashman, isn't it?
-The freakish amount of fun I had at the Phantomhive Ball! Thank you Anti Ai-chan, Tenchi and Jinnai! You guys rock! (Jinnai, I love your anime re-mixes, too!)
-Judging the Masquerades with Anti Ai-chan and Garnet! Love you guys!
-Getting to hang out with all my con buddies!
-The masqerade shows. The competitors, the organizers, the techies, everybody!
-Being stuck in the same tiny room to judge the masquerades FOR TWO DAYS! I think all the judging could be done on the same day, even if the shows are split into two nights again. Anti Ai-chan, Garnet and I were having some serious A.D.D. moments after being cooped up for so long.
-The dealers room closing early on day 1? What the heck?
-Pre-reg badge pick up was only 2 hours, and during rush hour. It was really hard to get into town in time.
-"Five Dollar Foot Long" Not Masquerade Appropriate, guys! And he totally distracted from the InuYasha skit. What? There was stage combat going on? Really?
-Only one shuttle per hour. I know shuttles are expensive, but that was a pain.
-The guy from the Gun Show that tried to run me over in the parking lot. He got so close that he left black stains from his truck on my green Victorian Hoop Skirt! No way he didn't see me. It was 10am and I was in a HUGE green dress! (not anything AV can do about him, sigh)
Anyway, I had a great time and I can't wait for next year!
