I was grumpy/stressed during this entire convention. You can tell because I didn’t take a single cosplay photo. That happens sometimes, and I always regret it later. Plus I ended up getting sick. Really sorry about not getting any cosplay though. Boo.
One thing I really really hate about Fanime, which automatically starts the con off on a bad foot is their HORRIBLE badge system. 40K people attend, and they have seriously about FIVE people checking people in. By hand. Very slowly. Lines to get in take 2-3 hours. Standing in the sun. It is AWFUL. I’ve been going for ten years now, and watched it get worse and worse as the con gets more and more popular, and they still do the SAME THING. All of my other cons have switched to barcodes. YES it means you don’t get a nice fancy badge because the badge is printed up on the spot, but hey, if it means waiting in a 20 minute line instead of a frigging three hour line, then BY ALL MEANS, switch to paper badges!!
Anyway, on to the pics.
