Trying to shake off the feelings of impending disappointment, I got up earlier in the morning to take a shower and prepare for the first day of Kumoricon 2016. It took a while to get everyone else up, but we eventually managed to have everyone present for our first morning excursion together.
Recently, it feels like I have been to the same few cities for conventions. It is usually either just the one here in Vancouver in August or down in Seattle. However, a Twitter conversation led to a convention a bit off the radar. Since one of the crew lives in Portland, there were a few idea thrown around to head to Kumoricon 2016. This was the first year it moved to the Convention Center in Downtown Portland. Let’s just say it would be one heck of a weekend.
