Always my official start to the convention year, MinamiCon rolls around once more in time-honoured tradition. No other event is as much of an institution as turning up to that Novotel lobby to already see crowds of familiar faces like we never left it the previous year!
A much more relaxed event than most in recent memory, as if there was a collective LETS TAKE A BREAK FROM RIDICULOUS COSTUMES FOR ONCE and I think it was a good move, certainly meant I wasn’t running around like a headless chicken for once! Still plenty of lovely costumes to take pictures of at leisure, and I think overall comfort levels were higher for it. This year the convention started earlier and finished later, crammed a lot more events in, and ran a chillout kotatsu lounge after the closing ceremony, filled with makeshift kotatsus, duvets, pillows, and many, many games. Probably one of my favourite Minamis to date.
Glad you had fun! I've yet to make it to a Minami. If you want ridiculous costumes, are you planning to attend Sunnycon? ;P

'fraid not, at least not planning on it yet. It has not curried favour with much of the general congoing public ;)
I spent lots of time drinking tea and eating curly fries. This made it a most excellent Minami IMO XD
Glad you had a good time, thanks for the awesome photos :D
Kotatsu lounges are the best idea to have popped up in a long time.
Glad to hear that it was good. Sad that I didn't go in the end.
Love the photos and the sound of the chill out Kotatsu lounge.
