My bacteria get a new addition to the family.
What I Saw:
There was quite a bit of cosplay, but since I was in panels for most of the time, I only got a few pictures. There was this one guy who was dressed as Hard Gay and he had an entourage of shirtless Eeveelutions which I tried to get a pic of but missed my chance. Bummer.
Kuroko’s Basketball (Kagami (red) and Kuroko (blue))
This sports anime is a favorite among the slash fiction groups. A lot of women will crossplay this and then act out their BL fantasies for pics. As seen above.

Samurai Champloo (Mugen (guy) and Fuu (girl))
An older anime and a favorite of mine. A nice couple cosplay.

Soul Eater (Medusa)
Medusa is an evil witch with vector (arrow) powers. She also has snakes tattooed on her arms that can come off if she chooses. She wears her hair twisted in front, which this girl did nicely.

The bathroom signs were anime themed, which was pretty fun. Kinda want one on my bathroom now.

Finally, my shopping loot.
Three tiny things. A Fionna button (Adventure Time) from Artist’s Alley. A Laboon keychain from One Piece (the whale cracks me up with Luffy’s painting on his head). The keychain has wheels and when it rolls, his flukes move slightly. There was a plush I was eyeballing, too, but I forced myself to only one plush. And finally a Nyanko-sensei phone charm because 1) Nyanko-sensei (from Natsume’s Book of Friends) and 2) Beer.
Here’s a better picture of Nyanko-sensei:
And finally, my prize purchase, C. trichoides from Moyashimon.
It has another microbe on its head, but I can’t identify it. The tag says R. rebura in katakana, but since in Japanese, Rs can be either Rs or Ls, I can’t find a match in Google, especially without knowing the genus.
Excellent start to the cons this year. Next up: Wondercon in March!
