My Trip to Anime Detour 2008
I decided to go to Anime Detour 2008 as Ginji from GetBackers. The day started pretty well, I was ready to go an hour before I needed to so I was feeling no stress. (Unlike previous year where I was finishing my cosplay the day of the convention.) All I had to do was put on the vest that I had spent twenty hours and color my hair with colored hairspray. Things didn't go as planned…
Green is a good color, but the problem is Ginji’s hair is yellow and so was the hair spray. It turned green when it hit my hair, go figure. The only choice I had was to just go with green hair and hope to fix the problem the next day.
So I arrived at Anime Detour 2008 green hair and all. The line to register wasn't to bad, only over an hour wait! After I was finally registered I finally got down to the business of what I wanted to do at AD 2008, get as many pictures of cosplayers as possible. And now for your enjoyment, my pics…

All of the pictures that you have seen so far have been reduced in size for easy viewing. But this means you miss some of the stuf in the background. Here are some clips from the pictures at full size.
Dude! I'm taking her picture. You don't need to look at the camera and smile.
You thought the guy in the background was just making fun of his friend didn't you? YOU WERE WRONG!
The sign reads "Cosplay First-Aid Station". I think they took the sign to literally.
