• Youmacon 2012

    Date: Nov 1 – Nov 4

    Location: Ren Center & Cobo Hall, Detroit, MI

    Another year has passed and so another Youmacon has come and gone. This one, for me, has been one of the best ones yet despite some of the problems. The cosplays this year were amazing and the sheer amount of things to do was jaw dropping. The lines were the longest I have ever seen and took upwards of 3 hours to get through registration. So much to do in so little time. I spent the majority of the con in 3 places: Dealers room, Game room, and wandering around the Winter Garden. I only went to a few panels which include: Team Four Star 18+, AMV free play, My Little Pony: Friendship is music videos, and the terrible AMV wars Hentai Edition 18+. I also wondered into the Crunchyroll Video room at 430am Sunday Morning to watch Natsuyuki Rendezvous and Saint Seiya: Lost Canvas to charge my phone and fall in and out of sleep for 3 hours. My phone actually took the full 3 hours to charge from 3% battery… More after the jump.
