I got back from MTAC (Middle Tennessee Anime Convention) on Sunday. I have lots of very good news to report! We arrived on Friday morning, and the first day was fairly uneventful. I spent a lot of time in the hotel room with *someone*. I enjoyed that very much. ;D I went to a few presentations, namely the para para battle because my sister was in it. She did really well in the first two rounds, but because of time constraints, they weren't able to do the third and fourth rounds on that day like they had planned. But she ended up winning the whole thing! She was AWESOME!!! We also got to see Jeff Nemoy, who plays the voice of Wolfwood from Trigun. He was really funny and down-to-earth.
My highlights of course were the traditional arts, namely the taiko drummers and my own presentation on kimono. I was surprised by the number of people that showed up. I actually asked if everyone was there for my presentation because I thought that surely I was in the wrong room! My audience was wonderful, and I had a great volunteer. I think I got a bunch of people interested in starting their own kimono collections. XD
Here are some pics some nice people took after the presentation:
