Well, for those of you who don't know, ACen, short for Anime Central, is a convention held every year at Rosemont Illinois. Its one of the fastest growing conventions and the 5th largest in the US. It runs 24/7 for the next three days (05/11 - 05/13) with just a bunch of anime/manga things. Artists preform such as High and Mighty Color. Theres a ball, social, etc. Just a whole bunch of things and its an awesome place to be. But, this is the Midwest convention. So, people from all over the Midwest (as well as other places of course) come here. I was pretty much just wondering if I get to see any of your lovely faces this weekend. And if not and you just learned about it, maybe next year. ^^ I'll probably update on my adventures here (if anyone cares) as the weekend progresses.

I have a friend who is there as we speak. The longer she is there the more jealous I grow.

I have to agree with azrael. Lately the conventions make me question whether or not anime fans know how to shower. Or sew. Most of the cosplayers (I'd say around 90%) don't have good costumes. Out of those people, a surprising amount don't even know how to sew a basic seam. It's disappointing. Conventions also are a wonderful way to discover that hyperactive anime fans + caffeine + little amount of sleep = very VERY bad.

I'm not a fan of HIGH AND MIGHTY COLOR or Spiral Spiders but I imagine it would be an interesting experience to watch them perform.

^^^ Yeah, I'm not in my school's anime club for that reason.

^^^^Suzumiya Haruhi, Nanami Lucia, Atobe Keigo, Yukimura Seiichi, Lacus Clyne, Sakura (naruto)

She is my friend from highschool, also 21. Half puerto rican, gorgeous but you can't tell her I said that. I won't tell you anything else because she'd be really embarrassed if you were actually able to find her and try to explain some distant, internet connection. She has been cosplaying for ten years now, so she budgets for cons.

Haha, well, I'm not cosplaying, but yeah, I know what you mean with the costumes garnet. And gopher, I promise I wont run up asking people if they know you. Anyway, I'm off to sleep. Update tomorrow hopefully!
