Now look where I've been!

Yesterday my friend and I drove my daughter to an Anime Convention in Tampa! She had a ball-jointed doll meetup there, which she really enjoyed. Meanwhile, us "supposed grown-up's" meandered around and took pics of all of the neat costumes people had on. Here are just a few for your enjoyment!

SEXY KITTY KAT WITH A PENGUIN (don't know name of this character):

A "Furry"...these are the people who dress in plush costumes:

Some girls who each made their own matching outfits (AWESOME):

This guy was really cool...looked like some futuristic guy from the early 1900's???

And, for all you sewing people out there...the gal on the left was what looked like a medieval seamstress...if you make the picture big, you can see the thread spools around her chest:

This will probably go down as one of the most curious days of my life...it was a great bit of fun and seriously an interesting population of kids (mainly from teens-late 20's in age). I am so glad I went over there and checked it out!

I feel sorry for the furry people because it was hot in Tampa yesterday. Nice to see so much imagination!

Nothing like an event like this to make you think out of the box. FUN

Well, that's something different for your blog, Julie! The mystery girl in the red dress is Asuka Langley from Evangelion, for what it's worth :)
