I was a Guest of Honor at Fresno Ani-Jam this past weekend. I had a lovely time. All the staff and attendees were very friendly. I really liked the geek solidarity atmosphere of the convention. If you’re near the Fresno area, you should go! I had fun giving a panel on working in animation and dressing in lolita. Thanks for asking good questions, Ani-Jammers!
Here’s a few photos from our Ani-Jam trip.
For the first morning I wore a casual outfit inspired by Makoto (Sailor Jupiter) and wore my Kuma Craft Jupiter wand necklace.
Later I changed into my Kiss the Girl Ariel and Annie wore her Snow White!
The hotel had a lovely indoor area with a waterfall!
I HAD to get a couple photos in my Ariel costume with it! 🙂 Photos by Annie.
There was a great Jack Sparrow! The next day he had a cool Mad Hatter, too!
An adorable Eilonwy from the Black Cauldron
Instead of eating in the hotel for every meal, since Annie and I had not been to Fresno before and we had a car, we found close restaurants on yelp and ate there as a little side adventure! This was gnocchi at an adorable Italian family restaurant.
And here was the best enchiladas!
I was really excited to see these lolita Avengers, Captain America and Thor! I wore my Haenuli Little Prince dress.
Thanks for the good times, Fresno!
I’m super happy to announce that I’ll be a guest Anime Los Angeles 10 and Fresno Ani-Jam later this year! I’m really looking forward to it! I’m preparing some really fun panels for them, planning some new costumes and will be taking my twin girls (probably in matching costumes to mine). Hope to see you there!
