Last Saturday the girls and I drove to Toledo for Animarathon X, a free one day anime convention at Bowling Green State University. It's about a two hour drive, but I figured the anime being free would make up for cost of gas. It turned out to be a lot of fun--about two thousand people attended, it was bigger than I thought it would be. I'm sure being in a campus building helped a lot with attendance.
The weather was nice, so a lot of people gathered outside the building as well.
And Ivy was once again a big hit dressed as Honey, and won Best Youth Cosplay in the Masquerade<p>
We were thrilled to find Wizzywig selling the Japanese candy konpeito in the vendor's room. According the the guy at the booth, the factory that makes it was damaged during the earthquake last year so they aren't making it any more? I can't find anything about it online though.
