Ohayocon 2011

Nessa here, just back from Ohayocon 2011 in lovely Columbus, Ohio!  I’m not on staff at Ohayocon but I love to go there because it’s a very relaxed and fun con.  Unfortunately, I caught Con Plague, but I’m on the mend now.

The costumers were out in full force as usual!  These folks are from Avatar.

Here’s a Chocobo.

Ponyo’s dad from Miyazaki’s Ponyo, a fantastic movie, by the way.

Katamari Damacy cosplayers.

David Bowie cosplayer!

This is the Dealer’s Room (bottom floor) and Artist’s Alley area (top floor)…. bigger than ever this year!

It was crowded this year, and ran at the same time as:

1) A cheerleading competition

2.) An Ohio elected officials meeting

3.) Some accounting convention

So it was interesting seeing elected officials, accountants, and little cheerleader girls intermingling  in the convention center with all the anime nerds!  Pretty amusing, too!

    I never was interested in these kind of conventions but your excellent documentation of such events really makes me think that I need to walk around one of these and have a ball!

    I love the heads on the Katamari Damacy cosplayers.

    My favorite thing is that Ohayocon, a cheerleading competition, a political meeting and an accounting convention were going on in the same place. The bar must’ve been hopping!
