No Brand!

yup. here it is, the first pic from no brand con. my foot is covered by a spat, but it's still my foot nonetheless. the crazy people in front of me are my friends Katie and Kait. they were dressed as people from Ouran High School Host Club (google it). this is in the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, and since it was friday, not a lot of people were there. saturday was amazing, there were tons and tons of people there. but, i liked it. first day i got there, and at least five people recognized my character. since it's from the 70's (omg!) i was stunned that people actually knew it. don't worry, i'll do something more recent next time. well, here's the lowdown on the convention itself. there were some rooms for programming, such as talking to voice actors and having panels and the variety show, and the dance, and other stuff like that. there was also a side room specifically for tabletop gaming, and a video game room that was constantly filled with people. there were two anime showing rooms, and even the No Mercy room, where they would show really bad films and you could sit there and yell at them. it was 18+, and i even went to watch Honzo in there. don't watch it. ever. it's so horrible. you will be scarred for life. even more than you are now. ummm... what else was there... there was the artist alley, and the giant room of vendors who would hawk anime, manga, plushies, candy, and just about anything pertaining to japan. i would have picked up a CD, but there were only like, three songs on them, so it wasn't worth it. i got a manga, a GTO dvd that i have to get the rest of now because i love that anime/manga, and an FMA wall scroll. (if you don't know what i'm talking about, don't worry. ) oh! i also got some candy, including mango Hi-Chew. they're delishious. hmmm... there was also Steam Century there, who is a steampunk group, and they had a LARP murder mystery game. i made some new friends who are steampunking, and i am so ready to learn to weld this summer, so that i can have my steampunk outfit done and ready to show off next No Brand. i must admit that i didn't take many photos this time, because i was having too much fun, but i'll give you what i can. oh, it looks like Nobita needs my help again... bye! *sticks bamboo copter on head and flies away*
