Anime ZAP: The Small World

I'm so sorry it's taken so long for this post about Anime ZAP! I pretty much spent the entire week recovering. XD

The drive there was terrifying in that the hood of my friend's car flipped up on the highway. You know that scene from Tommy Boy? Yep, it's as terrifying as you think it is!

After three men attempted and failed to ratchet strap the hood down in -15 degree weather, my friend's boyfriend finally walked me through it via phone. We were finally back on the road!

Our setup the next day had some gravity complications but we did it! I was able to get a picture below. :)

The rest of the con was so much fun! I met so many new artists, including one from the Facebook group I'm a part of. It was so exciting meeting Alexis of Honeysuckle Rose Creations!

The ride home was awful due to the snowpacolypse. We ended up staying an extra night too! Snow was drifting over the highway so you could barely see more than 2 car lengths ahead of you. We kept having to scrap the ice off the inside of the car to see outside the windows.

Nevertheless we made it home safely! :D

Here are some cosplay pictures I snagged. You can see them all at my Flickr account!

A wild furry appeared!

My swag from the con, including:  a hat from MadQueens, the My Little Pony Collectible Card Game from Anime Fan Zone, a Twilight Sparkle figurine from IcyPanther's Art Shop, pinback buttons from Sweet Apple Tea and a Pikachu hair clip from Pleasantly Strange.
I'll be posting more about my swag on my Facebook page soon!

My next convention is Animarathon on March 22nd! It's my coniversary! ^_^
