Final Day at the Anime Convention
We made it through our second and final day for us at the Anime Expo that was at the LA Convention Center.  I have to say it was an overall good experience from a parents stand point.  As far as fun and people being nice and just friendly folks in general.  I don’t think we encountered any rude CosPlayers the whole weekend.  You would ask may I take a picture of you and they were so ready with a pose it was just amazing how friendly they were.  They would let you know if someone from your group of players was somewhere and it was just so much fun in that way.  What a great community unto its own.  Now I can't say I wasn't shocked by some costumes because OH YES I WAS!  But it was to be expected.
