A Little Anime

Signed the lease with our new tenant last night, leaving me with a wonderfully free weekend for the first time in several weeks.  It's Sakura-Con this weekend, so Joe and I hopped the bus downtown to do some people watching. 

My camera was acting up, so I only caught a few photos.  This is one of my favorites.  Dressed all in black, with matte black facepaint this elf was almost impossible to photograph, fading into the shadows even in bright light.

The candid shot taken after she finished posing for photos shows just how hard she was to photograph compared to her friend.

I'm only familiar with a few anime series - recognized a number of characters from Bleach, and several Edwards from Full Metal Alchemist, including one with a fully articulated "auto-mail" arm.  

Here's the only other photo that turned out well.  Again, I'm not sure of the series, but I loved the tail.

We happened to meet one of Joe's co-workers.  He was hanging out while his 16 year old son checked out the convention.  Based upon his recommendation, looks like we're going to check out Black Butler this evening.
