This weekend I had the opportunity to check out Anime Central here in Chicago. The Cosplay was AMAZING! I also had my Nintendo 3DS ("3DeStrucoid" 3DS, as Hamza calls it) on hand and I could not keep up with all of the street passes I was getting!! Every time I opened my system, there was ten more Miis waiting to greet me. I finished every puzzle and another play through of "Find Mii" (my third) in the Mii Plaza on my 3DS, in my four hours at the convention.
I also had a few video game finds that I'll share later. For now, check out some of the Cosplay!
