Hello hello friends (・ω・)ノ☆ Today I’m going to write about a brand new experience for me — my first anime convention in the US! I made the last-minute decision to fly back to the states to attend Anime USA and meet many of my close anime community friends for the first time. It was intended as a surprise (that ultimately failed miserably as a secret >﹏< *) but in the end will always be remembered as one of the greatest weekends of my life.
We arrived mid-day Friday and getting our badges was a breeze! I mostly walked around the area with my itabags for a bit with friends as they began trickling in and saying their enthusiastic hellos.
Saturday was the main attraction however — participating in my first cosplay ever as *drumroll* Ruby Kurosawa from Love Live Sunshine!
