Finncon packed with anime people

The Finncon program was once again very interesting (since we were traveling with family, I did not take part in that many sessions, though). One thing that was again increasingly obvious was the dominating presence of cosplay and manga/anime fans. It was actually difficult to move around Kaapelitehdas (see picture), due to the huge, colorfully costumed crowd. Fun, but as an ‘old-school fantasy & SF fan’ I felt somewhat an outsider myself.
