This past weekend, NALUG had the privelege of running a display at Animethon - a massive Japanese animation (anime)-themed convention held in downtown Edmonton. The event was quite enjoyable and we had a steady stream of visitors past our display booth throughout the weekend. It was always fun hearing people's expressions of sheer joy and amazement as they rounded the corner and saw Chris and Scott's gigantic display of Mordor from Lord of the Rings; there were quite a few people dropping their jaws! We also got to enjoy seeing plenty of people dressed up in crazy costumes for the event, most of which we didn't recognize, but which were still awesome. All in all, we had a great time at the event and hope to come back next year for more!
