These past few days have been really con-filled and I just have to say one thing: One More Week!!!
Yes, that’s right! One more week and I won’t be here in Chicago anymore, I’ll be in Texas! It’s been one year since I was last out there and now I’ll be going once more for the same reason – Anime Matsuri ❤
Really the only thing I have to do now is remember to do my laundry before I leave
The con starts on Friday (or Thursday for those who go day 0, though I’m not sure what that is exactly…) and ends that Sunday so from April 3-5. I’ll be in Texas the day before and will be coming home on Tuesday (the tickets were cheaper that way since this is Easter Weekend).
I’ll also most likely not be staying at the con hotel which is really sad because I wanted to stay for the later events (I’m so afraid of walking out on my own especially when I don’t know the place).
Anyways, I heard the schedule was up and since I don’t have work today…I’ll be planning for the con. Some awesome treats that I’ll be looking forward to are the cosplays (my goal is to take lots of pictures), the main events (especially the fashion show, last year was great), and the guests, especially Reika! She’s actually the reason I’m going out there.
Kaname will also be out there this year, which is super exciting because his cosplay work is also awesome! I’d heard he was out here last year, somewhere in CA, and I’d mentioned to some roommates at Yaoi-con that meeting him would be pretty cool. Especially since they mentioned he was really nice and bam! Anime Matsuri decides to bring him!
I’m crossing my fingers that maybe this year we can interact more with the guests. Last year we were pretty much rushed through guest signatures and photo-ops and that’s really sad. These are Japanese guests that we may not see again (for good or for a long time) and I think it’s sad how strict everything is (and this is me comparing the treatment to the English guests/VA).
Ah, and here are the photobooks that I decided to buy. So far I’ve bought all the photobooks that Reika has brought (last year at AM and Yaoi-con) and this will also be my first time buying a Kaname book (with just his own work). So excited!
Pre-sales for photobooks are over but there are still some items available for purchase.
