Once again, I went to Youmacon in Troy, MI at the Hilton. And once again, the convention was awesome. The only problems I saw were the number of people (there was far too many for the size of the hotel, and luckily, the convention is moving to a larger hotel next year) and events were delayed (I assume because of the number of people, though). Overall, though, I had another awesome time.
This year, the pictures were taken on a digital camera I bought originally for school, but used here as well, a Nikon Coolpix L3. Thanks to my little sister, I found out that the camera has a scene option in addition to it's normal picture mode, which actually takes much nicer pictures, even WITH my unsteady hands. So the pictures this year are actually GOOD as opposed to last year (well, in most cases anyways...). All the pictures are scaled by 30% of their original size to fit on the screen better.
A picture of Caitlin Glass and Patrick Seitz that I took on the first night of the con when I noticed them while I was listening to the Spoony Bards. And there's a funny story to go along with the picture. Just a split second after the picture was taken, Caitlin noticed a cute cosplayer come by and pointed at them. Lucky for me, I got the picture just before she did, but I imagine it would've been funnier to get a picture when she was actually doing it. Unfortunatly, I can't remember who Caitlin went all gasp-shock over. Oh, another funny thing that happened when I was talking to them, Patrick jokingly said that Youmacon should be renamed to Caitlin Con because of her being invited every year so far. That was very humorous.
