Long story short: The Hague just doesn't have the same feel that Almelo did. They did, however, still have the same bungling tech people, a very nervous announcer who forgot to turn off his mic often, and a lot of shitty AMV's (to be precise: 2/19 AMV's were actually worth watching! The rest was just emotional crap with a lot of dizzying unnecessary effects.) The place was astoundingly big, but there were no proper indicators to point out where the different rooms were, so I mostly spent the time in the dealer room with my girlfriend, who had a stand there.

Speaking of the dealer room - it was massive. If there was one notable improvement over Almelo, it would be that. Also clearly better was the notable increase of seats in the theater room which was shockingly hard to find, despite of its size. I spent so much money in the dealer room that it made the ridiculous amount of €35 for a saturday-only ticket seem cheap, which it damn well wasn't. Getting old, I guess... I feel that may have influenced my view, so this may not be a completely fair one.

I can't say much about the outside, but from what I've read on the forum, there were indeed some grab-handy people outside. Still, the price to me wasn't worth the increase of space and awesome cosplays - if I go next year, I will be a part of the Keep In Mind stand, selling girlfriend's art and cheap Copic markers (seriously, there's no place to get them cheaper, which is awesome!)

It swiftly became clear to me I have been underutilizing my camera. I've made a couple of shots before the battery ran out, and each of them failed so miserably I had to post-process every one of them. Made a couple with girlfriend's cam which worked out slightly better.

Kamesenin with kid Goku. I mean, an ACTUAL kid Goku. This was the most D'AWWdorable cosplay I EVER saw. Did significantly make up for the lack of epic cosplay (that's not to say there were definitely GREAT ones, but EPIC... not so much).

Sakata Gintoki from Gin Tama - One of those cosplays where you can pick your nose and be in character. I love Gintoki, and pretty much every character from Gin Tama.

Kagura and Gin-chan.

I. MADE. FOUR. PICTURES. And this is the BEST one that came out. I am very disappoint. Hell, this one's even been SO post-processed. THE BLUR! I FAILED! Damn fine cosplay though. :3

Discord, from My Little Pony - Friendship Is Magic. I am considering cosplaying as Doctor Whooves, whilst the girlfriend cosplays as Derpy.

Uhm... Everyone was lining up to take a picture, so I figured I might as well get a shot in as well. No clue who it is. I do have a clue as per to why everyone wanted a picture though... XP

Successful cosplay is successful. Sparkles courtesy of the girlfriend. XD

I even caught a Pokemon! o_o *sparkle, sparkle*

More pictures soon, probably. Also a lot WITH a top on. XD

Haha I've heard the exact same things about the new location from others. xD It does look like you've had a little fun, though.

And that's the best cosplay idea!! xDD

That's a shame, but yeah, conventions are changing and watching anime there has become pretty much secondary to all the cosplay compo's. Then again, there aren't much newer series that I personally find that interesting, either. xD
