The FanimeCon 2012 Cosfest Post of Doom! (including pictures!)

Yes folks, it’s true: I’ve actually begun going through my FanimeCon pics! (See, I’m really trying to overcome this whole inertia thing…)

Editor’s note: Unfortunately, I was not able to complete my daily reports while at-con due to a very nasty hard drive crash on my laptop. The good news is that no data was lost. The bad news is that this has delayed my reports until I could come home and fix things. I’ll post the [...]
