Well, Hampton's anime convention, NekoCon
, has come and gone. Over all I had a great time, though I think one of the best parts was my friend Jeff and I having fun at the photo-shoot booth which was a fantastic deal.
Artist Alley was huge with many prints that I wanted to take home but really do not have room for let alone money. I did get my usual custom con badge (see pictures below) and got a few prints along with some stuff for my partner.
As usual I skipped over the video rooms being too busy with the Main Events which means I stayed out the Panels as well. Jeff and I tried to go to one Panel, Pheonix Wright
mock trial, but the line was huge long by the time we got there that we didn't even bother.
Speaking of Main Events, I was surprised at the AMV
Contest content was dominated by what I presume is a new anime that I am not familiar with called Ouran High School Host Club
. I swear 18 out of 23 videos used this anime.
My only real disappointment was MC Frontalot
, which put on a great show but was about 2 hours late getting started. When I have some money to spare I think I will pick up some of his albums, I am sure he is on iTunes.
Below is what everyone is waiting for, Con pictures. Now when I take pictures, I go for what I find cool or impressive or just like the character. I tried to identify characters as I know them. If you do, please shoot me an email so I can change it. If you are in any of the photos and like to have me take them down, again email me and I will be glad to do so.
