My day 2 at Dot Con started with a cup of coffee and 2 fruit explosion muffins from Tim Hortons. Tim Hortons is a great way to start your day ^^. I arrived at the Holiday Inn around 10am and just as I expected, it was still empty and not many cosplayers were there yet. The dealer was supposed to open at 9 am according to the schedule  I got but it was delayed until 11am.

While waiting for the dealer room to open, I went to Caitlin Glass & Cherami Leigh Q&A since I had nothing to do and I needed a place to sit and enjoyed my breakfast ^^. It’s quite interesting to know how voice actresses usually work and what kind of work environment they are in.

After the QA session, I went to the dealer room to check out if there is anything that I can buy. Figure wise, other than Queen Blade Alice I got from yesterday, nothing really peaked my interest. It took me a while to figure it out what I was going to get and finally I decided on Tsubasa Chronicles season 1 DVD.

I didn’t buy a lot from this convention because there weren’t many vendors there but one thing for sure, I didn’t go home empty handed.

Thoughts of Dot Con

2 Thumbs up for Dot-con for having Masakazu-san as a japanese special guest at this convention. Being a small convention, I didn’t expect them to bring someone like Masakazu-san so I am very thankful for the staffs.

I think organization and management could have been better, however, since it’s their first con, it’s totally understanable and besides, a lot of otakus said it’s not bad. Changing location 2 weeks before the convention was pretty bad thing to do but I believed they had their own reasonings.

Overall, I enjoyed myself and meeting with Masakazu was the highlight of this convention.
