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.
The kids were so adorable, I about died.
I like my new job a lot.
UPDATE! I won an award!
