To answer a hundred questions: No specific real people cameos in the crowds, and some of the ‘costumes’ I just kinda made up.
(Will expound later, running out the door for mother’s birthday!)
This was at around 2pm on Thursday, I think. I don’t even know if registration was open yet at this point, or if people were just camping out to get their badge faster Black Friday style. I heard later they processed people super fast. I guess they did, cuz I never saw a line like that again.
When I’d originally gone to Katsucon, it’d been a lot smaller and felt very comfortable. I’ve been to bigger cons and didn’t like them. I was a bit worried when I saw this, but despite the sheer size of Katsucon, I still felt really comfortable there, which is saying a lot.
Dressing in armor probably didn’t hurt. 🙂
Also, I think we stopped counting the number of Deadpool cosplays we saw once we hit around 15. or Sailor Deadpool. Whichever came first.
