The 1st time I saw FanimeCon I was 17 years old waiting at the bus stop. There were a lot of people dressed up, I saw a samurai, a fairy, Super Mario, and Princess Peach, some of my favorite video game characters. I asked them what they were doing downtown dressed like that, and they told me "Fanime". So this year my goal was to go there and experience it first hand. These are a few of my experiences, enjoy.
