One Piece Welcomes you to Fanimecon 2011
Hey everyone! If you live in the Bay Area or even close by you may of known that one of the biggest Anime conventions in the Bay Area has finally come to an end yesterday (03-30-11). It was a 4 day convention lasting throughout the Memorial day weekend. I was only there for Saturday but it was still great nonetheless. Now this was my Third year there, and I have to say I’m still glad that it’s still running as strong as ever.
Now instead of going to all Panels or watching shows this year my main point of going was to pretty much take as many pictures of as many Cosplayers as I could and I think I succeeded with that as I took nearly almost 500 photo’s this year. Thats about triple of what I took last year, but I won’t bore you with that many as I reduce the amount to a more reasonable number for this post. Also if you or anyone you may know are in any of the Photos I took feel free to let me know as well as let me know if you would like me to remove a photo if your in it and don’t want it posted. Feel free to correct me on any cosplayers I might have mistaken as other characters or if I don’t know which series the cosplays may be from. So here’s the best of the best photo’s from the Convention that I took.
Probably one of the best Aerith and Tifa's I saw there
