My friend and I attended Banzai Con today, something we had both been planning to do since this past spring. I dressed as Fai, my favorite character from my favorite anime, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.
Really, both my friend and I love that anime.
Once there, I found out where one of my favorite voice actors, Vic Mignogna (who voices Fai) would be signing autographs. Fortunately, I managed to get a pretty good spot in line, considering just how long the line was.
It stretched around quite a bit within the building the convention took place in. But when it was my turn, Vic noticed me, just sort of stepped back and smiled.
It seems I was the only cosplayer dressed as Fai, and apparently he must have really enjoyed voicing that character, because he claimed that my costume was his favorite!
After getting a picture with him and getting his autograph, my friend and I wandered about the building, having fun checking out the cool crafts for sale and all the amazing cosplays.
But meeting Vic Mignogna was so much fun and it really made my day!
You can check out my pictures, including the one of me in my Fai costume with Vic Mignogna in my gallery in a file listed as 'Banzai Con 2012'.
