Unfortunately, I couldn't stay in fantasy land forever. After all, there were animes to get in order.
At first, my photographer and I were worried on how to approach people for photographs. Wasn't a problem - apparently I was cosplaying as a Fruits Basket.
Love? War? Justice? What appears to be an anime pogo stick? All were in abundance in this symposium of today's greatest thinkers & doers.
Words fail to express how uncomfortable I was at Fanime. This picture however, does.
I've been snacking on it since about 4:30pm, and have it down to two bananas, a bit of pineapple and the grapes (I don't like grapes). There wasn't a really funny way to show eating a hat made of fruit, but I did document it and I've nearly eaten the entire fucking thing and want to die of fruit poisoning.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
