I couldn't finish up today without a quick post to say thank you to everyone involved in making today's anime convention #abercon a roaring success! Bethan, Jan, Dylan, Roger, at Mencap Ceredigion plus numerous volunteers, Robin's Nest comic book store, Game Park who came with virtual reality headsets, Hannah and Gemma who came to run a drop in animation workshop throughout the day, and Ben Lake MP who cut short his visit to the Plaid Cymru conference just to join us. And especially all the cosplayers and the wonderful staff at Aberystwyth Arts Centre for accommodating us.
Here are a few pictures from the day. There will be more to follow!
