Went, had a good time. Had more fun at the smaller con than I did at the bigger, though there was a lack of content. But I got tied up, so happy about that!
And I'm sure I saw everyone else who went on Saturday too. Heh

Can't put over how much fun I had at this con. Most fun I have ever had at a convention, with the majority of it being due to Death Note Mafia :D Would totally go again next year!

Kudos to you guys for providing that for everyone! I don't know of many cons that do things like this, so just wanted to let you know we appreciate it!


As for Anime Midwest itself, it was a blast! Fun panels, great friends, and awesome times overall! I loved it!

This was an awesome weekend - thank you to all the wonderful people who came! It was awesome seeing so many fantastic costumes, and some pretty great masquerade skits too.

So... much... Mountain Dew... :D

There are pictures of me in the Masquerade. <3

I think this is why I liked it much better than a larger one. I can actually find myself and notice all the other people I meet too. My typical anti-social, but fabulous butt actually talk to others. ^_^

Definitely looking forward to it next year ago where I'll attend both Friday and Saturday
Great things come in pink! :O
