I’m kicking off my 11th year of convention going with Ohayocon 2012, held annually in Columbus, OH.  Ohayocon is great because it also gives me an excuse to cruise the National Road, and see what’s left of the old days of road tripping (some cool motels and diners and such on the way.)

These guys as Wayne & Garth were very funny, they were telling everybody to “party on.”

This girl is dressed as a Pokemon, and she has a bubble gun!

This type of mask is called “Kigurumi.”  They put some in Madonna’s new video.

There was a ghost outbreak at the hotel, so the Ghostbusters were there!  These guys were super cool, all of their equipment was light-up and flashy.

Me again!

Ohayocon is one of my favorites, because everything is connected.  There is food, a bit of shopping, the con, and everything right there together.  Which is good for January in Ohio!  Usually it is super-cold so you wouldn’t want to have to go outside to eat or whatever.  This year the weather was really good though, which I think contributed to the huge crowd that was there this year.

    These are always my favorite posts of yours. I love the energy put into the costumes. Hell, I like the energy of just getting it together and going there!

    I’m very jealous of that little pink purse you’re sporting.

    On average, how many outfits do people bring? Is there a new one every day?
