My work flew me to Orlando Florida this past weekend to work the booth at AFO for the first time. It was my first time going to an out-of-state convention and I’m glad I went because it’s just really different compared to the west coast conventions that I usually attend.
The main thing is everybody is just so damn nice and friendly here–including the volunteer staff, attendees and other dealers. Also, raving is a little more popular there that the convention actually hosted a rave after-party. On Saturday, during the first half of the convention, a lot of the kids dressed up in their anime cosplays, and then towards the last half of the day, a lot of them changed into their vibrant and bright raving attire. Boy did this seem a little foreign to me.
I’ve always posted pictures of other people’s cosplays but I think I should mix it up and post their rave clothing:
Woo, it’s a whole ‘nother world out there.
As for me, I wasn’t really interested enough to go. I went back to my hotel and took mirror pictures instead. Ahah.
