3rd TAGCOM Megapost: Day 2

Day 2 of the 3rd TAGCOM Convention just got drastically different from yesterday, as this is the official day of the Cosplay Competition (if there is any convention without one, I haven't been in it). So it was obvious from the start that my day was about to get a bit colorful.

Coming in at the ungodly hour of 1pm, I began to scan the crowd to see what I was about to get myself into. Good timing, then, to see my good friends from Raika performing at the stage in front of a packed audience!

And if these guys are here, then it's a good chance that my members/'children' from the former HERO TV Forums are here too. And I was right, of course, because the moment I saw them, it just spiraled into an impromptu photoshoot that clogged the aisles for a good 10 minutes.

I'm not really famous, I just look the part. :)

So the kids have other things better to do than to hang out with me, so I cruise around looking for reasons to spend my well-earned dough. The action figure/statue/trading card booths were still there, as well as the good people of Comic Odyssey, who warmly welcomed me into their booth.

I didn't help them sell a thing, though. But they love me anyway!

The TAGCOM convention didn't just attract the comic-collecting, anime-loving, geeky crowd. It also brought out the cosplayers, who came out in droves to either join the competition or to just walk around in funny costumes, much to the delight of the general public and the people with cameras. Including me!

Yes, I know I only took pics of the cute cosplayers. But I know you guys won't look at any other kind anyway. ;)

Wait a minute...there's a commotion at the Maxicollector booth!

What could possibly be up with...oh wait...

...it's just Alodia.

Anyway, after having walked a country mile and not having sat down for 5 hours, I had time to chat with some of my forumers some more before going home. We took pictures of more cosplayers (there was one dressed like Kane and, get this, a Barack freakin' Obama cosplayer!) As with yesterday, I didn't go home empty handed (only empty-walleted) because I scored a Batista action figure with the world heavyweight championship belt (I actually just needed the belt, but oh well) and another awesome shirt from the guy(s) at Geekerie, their new Dr. Manhattan shirt! Now I know what to wear on the premiere this Thursday!

Hope you enjoyed this Geek's coverage of the 3rd TAGCOM Convention! If you have any questions or comments, or just want to ask the names of the cute girls in this post (hint: I'm not telling!), leave a comment in the comment box below! Thanks for reading!
