We survived Sakura Con 2012! That means we endured 5+ hours of registration lines, 20,000 attendees, Seattle traffic and managed to return home with all of our children intact. I admit that, for that many people all coming together in one place, the experience wasn’t all that bad. I’ve never seen so many happy and friendly young people in one place. It was a butt kicker for us older folks, but the girls have talked about it non-stop and we know they’ll remember this experience forever (or until they want something else).
I didn’t see any of our brood in this video, but it shows some of the great costumes and sums up the weekend nicely.
A1, a green guy, Friend S2
Back row: Friend S2, three characters from Sergeant Frog, Friend S1, Front row: A1. Night of the Masquerade Ball (I don’t think the frogs attended this event)
A3 as Maka Albarn and A2 as her scythe, Soul Eater Evans
Friend B, Friend S1 and A1 recording Otaku Talk
Fingerless mitts made from left-over yarn
A sock, slated to be frogged back to the leg portion
embryonic ruffled scarf knitted on needles the size of small logs.
That’s pretty much sums up our Spring Break. We’re back to school and work and I brought back a raging case of the crud as a souvenir. Cheers!
