Day 1 of Anime Weekend Atlanta!

Rate this Entry
Today, I attended the first day of another convention, Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA)! As its name implies, it's an anime and video game convention in Atlanta, and it always takes place at the end of September. I planned to do some mild cosplay, but can't find the hat, which is pretty much the entire outfit, so I had to scrap it. Lots of good cosplay there, and tons of great art and merchandise! I didn't do a ton today, but I did attend one panel: a panel about legends of ghosts and demons in Japan. It was a really fun insight to the old Japanese legends that are referenced everywhere in anime and superstition. A couple of times, I ran into some Canterlanta friends, and even had lunch with one of them, but we were always going our own way.

Despite not doing cosplay, at three different points today, people asked to take a picture of me. This was because of my awesome pony shirt (perfect for an anime con) and my pony bookbag setup (same as it was at Dragon Con). Here is the shirt I was wearing: http://www.welovefine.com/1537-filly-cooly.html

I took a TON of pics, so I'll just embed the swag and link the rest, like I did with my Dragon Con blog.

    You have the same link up for Twilight Sparkle and Sanji's unaccurate Wanted Poster sketch (One Piece). That character with Kiba from Naruto looks so familiar, but I can't place her.

    Nice, looks like it was heaps of fun.

    I never been to any conventions before, however it seems quite similar to car shows in a number of ways, only with less... undesirable people around.

    EDIT: And that Zoids picture! That drags up some weird vague memories I didn't remember having.
