An anime convention was held in Baltimore a couple of weeks back.
On the streets, you would find teenagers wearing costumes of their favorite characters. Most of them were dressed to shock.
The inner geek in me shrieked in delight.
Some of the participants stayed in Raft3r’s hotel. I did some investigation. The convention was a mere three blocks away from our place.
I scored a free invite from one of the hotel guests.
The trade show booths were out of this world. Bright and colorful, they truly catch the attention of convention goers. You just had to stop by every booth to appreciate the art works. They were visual eye candies. Even the table skirts were very creative.
The animated banner stands showed the different characters being hawked by merchandisers. This is every anime lover’s dreamland.
Nerds have finally found their heaven.
Raft3r is not even a fan but I got into the whole anime thing with all the things I saw there. It’s that good.
Appleseed’s Pipe and Drape tops them all. It was off the hook. Everything about their presentation was totally awesome. The graphics were excellent. The Bioroids rock!
Raft3r left the convention with a better appreciation of anime and its huge fan base.
They aren't just a bunch of weirdos. I am now one of them.
