Attending this show was a last minute decision and it just happened to fit perfectly with the weekend plans. I was going to be out that way later in they day anyway so why not come out earlier and have a new convention adventure.
I am just now checking out the program and map (unlike iCon they have a MAP that is readable). The show is small enough that I thought we had seen everything but it turns out we missed the actual photo booth (unless it was moved), the demos (of what I wonder), and possibly the autographs (I am pretty sure no one was over there).
The actual venue was a touch too big for the show. It was a nice place and laid out pretty well, but the main hall seemed almost vacant because it was so big in comparison to what was taking place in it.
When I arrived on Saturday the Kyo Daiko Taiko Drummers were on stage and wow. They are amazing to watch. An extremely polite young girl asked to take a photo with me while we were in a trance watching the drummers. She knew I was caught and we got lucky because it was the very end of their set. You can hear her in the video. I only filmed a little bit, but here is a sample. I don't even want to imagine trying to play like this.
My big complaint about this show was the food venue. The food selection appeared to be rather large but they were sold out of almost everything. Okay, that happens. What got me was the pretzel stand. Patrons buying pretzels, paid for their pretzel, then the customer opened the unit and pulled out their own pretzel. There was wax paper available but I watched people dig through with bare hands and no paper. Beyond gross. Sorry, I work in food service and that is gross. Seriously made me question my cheeseburger. I tried not to think about it.

Rave Fluttershy was so much fun I am changing my Fluttershy cosplay to be a more complete rave style. Originally I was working on making a yellow dress with pink goblets, but the pink did not work well and the lining (and interfacing) to the dress only falls to the waist making the entire skirt completely see through. Plus it came out huge on me. Then I bought a yellow dress to alter and I love the dress but the yellow is slightly more orange then I would like it to be. I am not sure I can dye it without ruining the dress. So next week and weekend (before WW Philly) I will be making a skirt. I am not sure if I am going to go with a pleated skirt or a circle skirt yet. The circle skirt will need a pink petticoat (augh petticoats). The top is going to be a tank top I already own and I picked up a pink baby backpack today. The fun of MLP is that you can really do anything you want with it. I used to rave forever ago and I kid you not I rocked MLP back then, not quite like this though.
Once Upon a Time talk tomorrow... :o)
Picture time now!
