Matt and Ryan were out in Indianapolis for Anime Crossroads this past weekend. The convention was held at the Wyndham Indianapolis West and was an absolute blast according to the dynamic duo. While Ryan got to talking with our good friends over at OTP over all things Kamen Rider, Matt spent his spare time ogling the Tabletop Gaming area and all the rich, board gamey goodness it contained. Of course, the real stars of the show were all the Lemonbrat fans and customers that stopped by!
This was our first anime con to feature our new long dog scarves and tassel hats and we’re very happy to report that they were a huge success! The booth also had all our classic rave gear and animal hoodies, but the biggest hit had to be our Lemon Squeezies. Seems like the folks in Indy really loved the massive variety of animals that we had available and the booth was a constant chorus of happy squeaking sounds (though a lot of that can probably be attributed to Ryan). Anime Crossroads’ attendees also really enjoyed just hanging out at the booth and chatting, which we always enjoy!
Special thanks should be given to the hotel and it’s staff, too. This was their first year hosting Anime Crossroads and they were incredibly helpful and courteous. Setting up was a breeze with their help (and the booth looked great with the extra tables they provided). Matt was a particular fan of the Wyndham’s concession stand – they had chili, burgers, and even freshly made stir fry all weekend long! As if that wasn’t good enough, the con staff were all very cool and dedicated to making Anime Crossroads the best show it could be. They had lively programming going on all weekend – fan panels, arcade games outside the dealer’s room and an Artist Alley that was always jumping with activity.
For everyone who stopped by to say hello, thank you so much! Matt and Ryan are already chomping at the bit to visit Anime Crossroads next year!
