Summer Festival and Anime Evolution are local anime conventions in my area. Summer Fest is run by Simon Fraser University’s anime club.
I saw Moya at Summer Fest because she was selling anime pins and other items at a table. I tabled for my university’s anime club, University of British Columbia Anime Club (UBC Anime Club). I cosplayed as Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service.
Met another Kiki
I got a One Piece haul.
I got to go in for free, which was great. I cosplayed as Rachel Gardner from Angels of Death. I met Falcon from Geek Astronaut for the first time, which was really cool.
Tabled for UBC Anime Club
I bought a gundam.
Anime conventions are pretty nice because you have a good chance of meeting your online buddies in real life. I got to hang out with a lot of people I knew already from anime club and I met a few new people as well.
