So when you were walking around did you pick it up so the white wouldn't get dirty? Or while you were inside you let it drag but outside someone helped you?

By the way, still awesome to look at. ^^

Yep! I had train wranglers to help carry the back and I never let it drag. First off, it soaks up dirt like no other. and Second, It's too blasted heavy! I can't walk when its on the floor!

You must send me your con list my dear Yuuko, perhaps my private jet can take me to you! Anything for Haruhi.

hah, yes actually you should send me your con list, I got a nudge about Denver, CO in 2 weeks and the Salt Lake City one. I might be able to swing those into my listings this year inbetween what we're working on down here. (I can't read Denver's website to save my life!)

IT was accidental too! James was doing all train stuff, then one of the cosplay zone girls took over. Then another came to help and then the others though it would be fun and joined in too! hehehe. We have a video of the progression of it! yeah, james made us stop so he could have pictures, everyone thought it was just too funny!
