A JAFAX Whirlwind Weekend

This past weekend I visited an old show of mine: JAFAX! For those who don't know, JAFAX is a small* convention that takes place on GVSU's campus up in Grand Rapids. (* I say small because the estimates were close to the 5,000 range on attendees, which is MUCH larger than I remember it being)

I had been up there helping out in the Artist's Alley, making sure they were doing okay since they had moved spots to a new building. Thankfully, the weather was perfect, and the crowds were wandering, so the alley was quite the bustling location. I was exceedingly relieved.


I did find out part way through the day on Saturday that they needed help/emcees for the fashion show. Lucky for them, I had packed a costume just in case, so I donned my Rarity, and proceeded to keep working!

Twilight Sparkle was there in plush Spirit

I got to do a short photo gathering with a bunch of other MLP cosplayers, and that was a hoot. :) My pal PhD Cosplay went as Photo Finish, and we ran the fashion show, while my husband helped out greatly as a cat herder cosplay wrangler.

It was a very successful weekend for the show and the artists, but man did it wear me out! I've been spending a lot of today recovering from said event. Then it's back to the artist's lair with me!
