Alright. This weekend I had the pleasure of attending Sakuracon 2004 down in Seattle. I only went for the saturday and I drove for 3 hours from Canada and I had a blast. Things I did:
-Watched a Fred "Piro" Gallagher conference. Man he cracks me up, so funny.
-Patrolled the halls getting pictures (Posted at the bottom)
-Watched some anime in one of 3 theatres.
-Attended the art show (wow!)
-SHOPPED (List posted soon)
-Dressed up as Reno of FFVII
-Watched DDR and other various games
It was a blast! It was in 3 different buildings and I stayed there allll day. One building was meant for simply shopping and I found everything I was looking for (but didn't buy ALL of it due to prices). Things I did get were:
-MegaTokyo Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 Mangas
-FLCL Vol. 2 Manga
-FFX-2 Rikku figure
-Evangelion Unit 02 Figure
-FFX-2 Rikku keychain
I saw some of the best costumes ever at this convention. And I took pictures of all the characters that I saw and actually knew who they were. THERE IS A LONG LIST:
(Tell me if any of these are YOU! Or if you know them!)
Tifa and Me!
Yuffie and Me!
Cloud and Rinoa (Whoa...nice Cloud)
Rikku (this has to be the cutest)
Haruko and Amarao
Paine, Songstress Yuna, and Squall
Duel Weilder (Kingdom Hearts Deep Dive)
Chrono Trigger Cast (Crono, Lucca, Ayla)
Black Mage vs. White Mage
Tifa (You can't really see but her hair is actually down to her...it's where it should be!)
Paine and Aeris
Sora (Kingdom Hearts 2. This guy's outfit is made entirely out of coloured tape)
Noface and Chihiro (Spirted Away)
Evangelion Cast (Aida, Shinji, Asuka, Rei, Kaji, Misato, Gendo)
San (Princess Mononoke) and Inu-Yasha
Cammy White (Street Fighter. This one was really well done)
It looks like a blob but it's a giant Meowth costume.
Sephiroth and a cross-dressed Vincent
Inu-Yasha (OK! THAT IS THE BIGGEST THING EVER!!!!)
Yuna (This is the best one I saw all day)
I also must say about 25% of the people were dressed Naruto-related. But I'm not a fan so I didn't take any pictures of them.
And there you have it, my wonderful day. I had a blast! Try and come next year!
