    No I was only there Saturday.

    And no I didn't cosplay, although I've been a long time anime fan (on and off) but i'm not quite that hardcore. However, I wouldnt be beyond trying it once. :o

    I think cosplay is :cool:
    Amazing work on some of the costumes, gotta admire that.

    I was mainly there for free stuff, bargains, and to load up on anime. :)

    I used to go to Anime Weekend Atlanta.. but the fan-stink and insane prices at the dealers room drove me away.

    AWA used to be a great beer and anime 4 day party.. now its a mostly cos play con.

    even for a person who likes anime quite a bit I think the concept of one sounds a bit nerdy. I'm not bashing anyone who goes to them ... I just don't think I'd find them very interesting.

    I briefly visited AX in Anaheim the past 2 years. It's fun, but CCI in San Diego was way better. :o
