Well, today has been pretty productive, but it was all pretty mundane chore type stuff that's not worth typing about. Except for the Hobnobs. We were exploring Fresh & Easy and we found their international snack food section. It had Hobnobs. We had them for the first time at BYU, we think when we were getting ready for Asian Fest with the Japan Club (though ironically, we're pretty sure Hobnobs come from England), and they were amaaaaazing. We loved them so much, but we had no idea where to get them, except for one international food store in Provo that seemed to have everything...old. But anyway, today we found them again and we're very excited to eat them, because they are very yummy.
But anyway, since that was the only thing we really had to tell about,
At Anime Expo 2008, we kept running into this group of Ace Attorney cosplayers, and Edgeworth said, "We're going to have a gathering at such-and-such time!" Then we ran into a couple of Godots (sort of), and they said, "We hear there's going to be a gathering at such-and-such time!" And we were like, "We totally have to be there!" And we were.
Unfortunately, the quality on these pictures is kind of terrible. We did our best, and so did our little camera. We're just grateful we had a camera at all, because this was one of the best cosplay gatherings we've ever had the privilege of joining, even though we didn't actually technically join, because we didn't have Ace Attorney costumes. But they let us help direct! It was great, because someone would say, "Oh! Let's get a picture like this!" and then everybody who would be in the picture went and made that picture happen! It was beautiful. So very beautiful...

You can't really make out Manfred, but the whole von Karma family was there!:

I can just hear the music in my head...:

Athena reminds me that this Edgeworth was such a good sport, because we saw him when he was about to put the jacket back on and we said, "No no no! Leave it off!" and he posed for us.
Rise from the Ashes:
Love Edgeworth's posing!
These next two photos are almost enough to make a flipbook!:
Can you tell who our favorite cosplayer was?:
Aww, I wish this weren't so blurry. Franziska winning:
(That Dahlia was so sweet, by the way.)
Manfred von Karma:

As we were leaving the convention center, we found this guy sleeping on a park bench. It just seemed so...appropriate, somehow.
Oh man, that brings back happy memories. Cooperative cosplay groups are the best.
Today I'm thankful for happy cosplay gathering memories, the amazing group of cosplayers that showed up that night, Hobnobs!, being done with laundry, and the hope of one day trying those fancy chocolate bars from the international snack food section (we decided to pass on them because they were a little expensive, and we were planning on maybe splurging on something else, but we decided to pass on the something else, and now we are sadly without fancy international chocolate; but that's okay, because we still have Hobnobs!).
