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 nice cosplay of Rukia from Bleach in her casual clothing. I didn't notice till now, but I think she has a Kon plushie hanging out of her backpack. I was taking the picture in the lobby by the Spoony Bards, and you can kinda see that someone was about to walk into the picture and was backing away when they realized, but I snapped the picture just as they were doing so. I didn't want to redo the shot (I'm lazy), so that's what you see on the left side of the picture. As fas as the cosplay itself, it's nice that she even did the hair in front of face just like Rukia's. That makes the cosplay that much better.
