It's 5:24 am... do you know where your cocoon is?

If you do, drop the cocoon!

Then you can go ahead and take a look at my pictures from Animazement 2000, the best con I've been to. They were taken on my Olympus D-320L digital camera. These are mostly cosplay pics, with a few others thrown in for... entertainment. A few have been removed for various reasons. Sorry, there are no thumbnails, but I do try to describe the pics here before you go through the trouble to download them. For anybody with a highspeed internet connection, you can view all pics in full size at once.
Any pictures that are up here may be taken down upon request of anybody in the picture. If any of these pictures are of you, please contact me - see below - and I'll remove the picture, or change the caption if that's all you want. I'd appriciate it if you notice any misakes, please tell me about it so I don't have any wrong/missing information on my page. Anybody who wishes to use these pictures is free to do so. However, if you post them on another site, a photo credit to Ollie would be nice; any modification of any of these pictures reqires my prior permission, though. I'd appriciate it if anyFor anybody who is interested, I also have a few Kastucon pics, but they are not ordered, and have no index page. Enjoy!
