Los Angeles Anime Convention
I did some Lyft driving on July 1, the first day of the Anime Convention, and I had the chance to take a young Marine (yes, USMC) in a mophead silver wig, blue boa and knee boots there, and then pick up a few ladies in full cosplay outfits and return them to Koreatown. On the ride home the ladies did nothing but talk about gaming strategies – I mean, they were DEEP into it. Did you ever wonder about the connection between imagination and identity? For a lot of people identity has less to do with nationality, job, and a family name, and much more to do with imagination, fantasy and friendship. And why not?
BTW, I snapped a few photos of the crowd while I was stuck in traffic. The people watching was just excellent!
