anime fish

spent the weekend at an anime con, with a brief side trip to a mansion in Marlborough, NJ. unfortunately, my photos of the weekend are severely limited. it's all technology's fault: it deceives us into thinking it's reliable.
the short story is that all 300 or so images were erased about an hour before we left.
i'm trying to be philosophical about it.



in spite of that, i had a grand old time. those people love to be photographed, & i had a marvelous experience obliging them. i had a costume briefly (resurrected the halloween Witch Hunter Robin getup) but mostly it was high school kids with too much time on their hands. appropriate, though, since most anime seems to revolve around highschool kids. besides, we had a projector hooked up to a laptop in the Hotel Suite, & got a fair dose of all the anime you could want. i swear i ought to have learned Japanese by osmosis at this point.

& i came home with a Kuroneko-sama bobble head doll; no such silly item ought to make me grin so profusely.

6 little fish:

I'd love to attend one of these sometime. The website pix of anime cons always look so fun. And you must be right because every picture I've ever seen seems to be filled with people in costumes posing.

Sorry about the pix, that's really terrible.

hey, just seeing pictures of the Kuroneko-sama bobble head makes me grin until my cheecks hurt - owning one maybe joyfully dangerous for me

limited images now posted on the tourist. basically whoever was left on the expo center steps after my camera ate itself.

This is an unrelated comment, but Jenn See and Mysfit...are you going to do the 100 word Tiny Story challenge? I think you would both be great! You obviously both have much more writing under your belts and if I could throw together something with slight coherence I'm sure you two would do wonders!

yes. at some point. maybe today.

going to an "art space" later, so, you know, busy busy busy.

maybe i'll write 100 words about a fish in the flooded front room of the bar...
