SixOn Clothing was at Fanime 2017 up in San Jose, CA. The drive was long but San Jose is always welcoming! With a busy schedule, only some of the more popular designs were brought (aiming to change that with the upcoming Anime Expo!).
Set-up was simple, the folks at the convention center are always helpful.
The takoyaki stand is always a life saver; the lines get incredibly long during the day but we manage to go before the hall opens, energy for the day! Food in San Jose is quite tasty (get the Vegetarian pizza from Il Fornaio in the Saint Claire across from the convention center). We were at the Hilton again this year and the room service food was good as well (I had a chicken curry, not bad!).
I invited my mom to come along and she stopped by after visiting San Francisco. She was fascinated by the cosplayers and took pictures from afar. My mom expressed she really wanted to take some up close, but was afraid that the cosplayers would get angry if she asked for a picture. I explained to her that a lot of cosplayers make their own cosplays and are very proud of their work, or invest into costumes, and are always happy to pose for pictures. Hopefully next time my mom would not be so shy and ask cosplayers for a pic. =]
We met a lot of amazing people and fans, looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!
