Animazement 2009: Sunday
Rozen Maiden Cosplay with (L-R) Suigintou (Alison), Souseiseki (Leah/me), Suiseiseki (Michelle) and Hina-Ichigo (Annie)
Sunday was the slowest and shortest day at the con - it was kind of nice, as the other two days seemed non-stop (I'm pretty sure there were teens staying at the hotel across the street that didn't sleep at all). We used the last day to buy the things we'd had our eyes on in the Dealer room, like new dice, heart-shaped eye patches, lolita detachable sleeves and Buddha #5.
Overall, Animazement is a good anime con, and now that it's moved into the new Raleigh Convention Center, it's got lots of room to expand and improve, which I'm hoping will happen.
Kyoshi Warriors & The Cabbage Guy (from Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Remember a bit ago, when I was talking about well-done side characters? Well, here we have from Animazement a coterie of "side characters" that won hearts all over the convention - the Kyoshi Warriors and the Cabbage Salesman from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Yay!
