Hello there lovelies!
So, Anime Expo was great. Unfortunately, was sick and couldn't make it. I was instead accompanied by .
We got into L.A. around noon, after leaving early in the morning, and took our time getting our room together before getting our tickets. A pretty laid-back day before the con!

We got to the con around the same time and grabbed some food to eat before we met up with everyone. After a while, we followed and outside to do a small photoshoot with other Magi cosplayers. I also met some other lovey people: , , and .
After hanging around outside and seeing the cosplayers walk by, we went back inside to explore the Dealer Hall and Artist Alley. I bought prints from and my favorite artist which made me a very, very happy person! After that, we met up with everyone else again and took a field trip to Little Tokyo. I tried soba for the first time and fell in love with it!

Now, Day 3 was not my comfy day. Despite this, Day 3 was just as fun as the other days! We got to the con and found everyone pretty quickly. We stayed in the (hot) South Hall for a while, getting stopped for pictures, conversing, and maybe stealing a certain Kyouko's pocky. When everyone went off to rest, we successfully found the Lost and Found. went to her Vocaloid gathering and went with us to find where we rested, ate a little bit, then followed them to their gathering
that we crashed.
We all rested a while. I went with and another friend whose username I do not know (Again, I'm sorry!) to the Dealer Hall and Artist Alley. After that, Rinko and I went back to our hotel then ate at Denny's which sprung a great little story from a certain photographer.

Since it was the last day, we wore fairly comfy cosplays. We watched and cheered for and in the mini cosplay contest. Then we met up with another friend and Valda to meet Kaname* before going out to eat with ZAA. After that, Rinko and I relaxed in our hotel room for the rest of the day and left the next morning after going to the beach!
And, that abour wraps up our trip. Anime Expo turned out to be an amazing con and I'm so glad I got to see everyone and meet several new people! It was great meeting you all.
