SonofV and I went to this event last year and had a ball! This year was our second Con, and I have already cleared my calendar for next year. What a blast!

There was soooo much to do, if you were six people living on Ding Dongs and Butterfingers with a Red Bull iv drip, you couldn't take it all in. Just. Too. Much. Good. Stuff. Still, we wanted to, or at least die trying. I'm still not completely recovered, but I wanted to give you all a little taste of the milieu we immersed ourselves in.

Here is a small sampling of the characters we encountered.

Nice costumes, BigV. I recognize you as Jet, but what character is your kiddo? I'm not as up on my current anime as I should be...

Lelouch Lamerouge, as Zero, from Code Geass, Lelouch of the Rebellion.

He was incredibly popular with the girls. The real girls at the Con... They would squeal "ZERO!!" and run up and ask for a picture with him. It was awesome. (Dad note here... I told SonofV that next year, we're picking a costume where I can see his face. I have only a couple where you can see him smiling....). In some of the pictures with him and one or two or three or more girls, I would take the picture, but none of them are looking at me. They're all looking at *their* photograper. So much fun.

And hugs. Did I mention the hugs? I was asked for pictures ... at approximately the same rate as Zero. But the girls just loved to hug Zero. OMG. And not just in the glomp game. Just walking around. Mostly asking for permission first, but not always. Incredible.

And Clodfobble, thanks for recognizing me!
