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.
This is another cosplay that surprised me. It's Katara from Avatar: The Last Airbender, in her outfit she wears after the group has left the cold areas and is in warmer climates (although before the group enters the Fire Nation). Even though I saw 2 nice Avatar cosplays last year, this one still caught me off-guard. I liked how she even has Katara's necklace. It adds a nice touch to the whole costume.
