Sydney Manga & Anime Show (SMASH)

Well, on August 9th my wife was supposed to take our daughter and a friend to this show, but she wasn’t feeling well so this task fell to me.  This is a really different kind of event; like going to Comic-Con back in the USA.  The girls were really into anime and they wasted no time in ditching the old man and doing their own thing at the show.  So I took a few pictures just so I could say I experienced this thing.  I know NOTHING about anime characters, Japanese cartoons, or any of that stuff.  But I was impressed with the creativity shown by the kids in costume, and the artwork skills demonstrated.  It’s possible that I was the only guy with gray hair there, though!  Our favorite costume was the girl who transformed herself into a complex gray robot (see below).  But I’m sorry…that dude in the pink dress with the Batman mask was just plain strange!
