Since there weren't any panels to go to, my friends and I drove over to the local mall to look around. Guess what I found?
While wandering the mall, Nicole and I took a picture of this:
You would have thought we were crazy tourists, but in our defense, we'd never seen one before!
The convention hosted a Lolita meetup so there were some lovely ladies and gents dressed in Gothic/Lolita styles. Too cute!
Pikachu.....I've never been a fan of Pokemon. But I loved this girl's costume. She even added lights on her tail!
I stopped this girl at the end of the cosplay contest before we went off to eat dinner before a concert. She's dressed as Sephiroth from FFVII. I love her Moogle doll ;)
A convention isn't a convention without a stash of goodies that you come home with!
Also purchased something FANTASTICAL!!
Yes, more geekiness! I've always, ALWAYS wanted a pocket watch, but never saw one that I liked. One of the vendors in the dealers' room sound vintage watches and antiques. I couldn't resist the pocket watches. All of them were made to show the front and back gears moving.
Front of pocket watch. I was debating on this one and another one. Kristina and Nicole said the ornate one was better so it came home with me.
Overall, it was a great day with friends despite the late night driving back to Mobile (2 1/2 hours!). We should do it again >____<
Until next time ^____^
