my new job

IMG_0013

Yomicon—”reading con”—is an annual anime/manga/cosplay event for teens at the Austin Public Library. The free five-hour event features geeky crafts, gaming, costume and art contests, Magic, Minecraft, manga drawing workshops and tons of nerd swag.

They asked for staff volunteers; they got a creepy horse galomping about, nuzzling shrieking children.

I worked the photo booth, arranging shots into strips and printing them out.

Three shots of me in a horsehead mask with increasing levels of sassiness.

The kids were so adorable, I about died.

I like my new job a lot.

UPDATE! I won an award!
