Hello everyone! It's Okunome! Finally back from Anime Expo !
It was a crazy experience. But it was totally worth it! I had lots of fun and I met so many nice people. I got super emotional too. LOL.
I got quite a few prints done -- On the day of the con. It was quite a roller-coaster ride. Due to the prints being printed a little later than schedule, it set us back quite a bit for setting up on DAY 01 of Expo.
While I was setting up late in Artist Alley, @animus-color was the first to visit me ! Oh goodness. She was so sweet and constantly asking if I needed help! Thank you Animus, that was so sweet of you. ;v; / !!
I'm sad I don't remember a lot of AX, but I'm going type as much as possible! Or give a shout out to the people I meet and came to see me! Sorry for people coming to see me - and I ended up feeling super shy and awkward with people OTL
Anime Expo this year, was an experience. Sadly, Artist Alley was crammed into Kenita Hall, which was right under Exhibitor Hall. On Day 02 , I heard a couple people fainted and they kept turning the AC on and off [to keep it in the budget] and -- It was very grossly warm. Too many people, and lots of body heat. It was was insane. Morning of DAY 03, I heard it flooded? That's why that one zamboni thing was going back and fourth through aisle. There was a rumor that because it was so humid, people in the front got bug bites? Yeahhh- It was quite a weekend.
Going back to good things!
I met @LinaTurd ! Oh my god guys. She is literally the sweetest person in the world! So tiny and cute// I couldn't help but hug her! She went with me to the RORAX Concert and we have a fun time!
