Anime Conventions.

Post by Yami Haga-Ryuzaki »

Been to one? Want to go to one?
...have a reason why you would never go to one? xDD

I've been to one; 'Animania 07' - which is the anime convention located in Sydney. It was so much fun; my friend and I have made a pact to go every single year until it stops or we both die.

We went for the whole weekend (plus the opening on Friday) - and it was so worth the huge wait in line to get in. I bought over $400 dollars worth of Manga/Anime merchandise (two plushies <3) - and at least $20 worth of Pocky to munch on as I enjoyed the "festivities" - and I was introduced to great anime such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Death Note and Moonphase.

By the end of the three days, I was actually wishing it was next year so I could go do it all again. Can't wait for this October!

If you've been to one; share your experience! If you've got any photos - that'd be awesome xDD

I've been to AnimeCon (4 times) and Anime Dreams (once)!! Both are on São Paulo- Brazil.
I think AnimeCon (AC) is better than Anime Dreams (AD)...
in AC there are more cosplayers, more shops...
Here are some pictures of cosplayers I took on AC in 2006:

(I haven't passed the photos I took on last year's event to the computer yet ^^' XD)

The pictures are very good ^^ I recommend them ^^

*just as a curiosity, I was one of the 1000 first people to buy the 1st volume of FMA on AD last year! ^___^*

I've just found the gallery of this event called Ressaca Friends. I've never gone to it, but my friends have aaaand.. I've just found a pic of my friends! 8DD

Not because they are my friends, but this is one of the best Ichigo and Ishida's cosplays I've ever seen. ^^ As I can see in the gallery, there were amazing Bleach cosplays there! So I'll share with you the link to this amazing gallery!

Me and a group of friends have plans for No Brand Con '09 here in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I've gone the past few years. The first time with a failed Shuichi costume (no pics) and last year we had a group of Organization XIII and Kingdom Hearts Cosplayers. =( Sadly we didn't win any awards in the Costume Contest.
Please, I am but a smol potate.
