Minamicon 5 Photos

Minamicon 5 was held at the Novotel Southampton from 19th-21st March 1999. Here are some photos I took over the course of the weekend:

The quiz
Part of the quiz was a challenge round in which each team had to perform an embarrasing task of their choice. All but one team chose the 'draw characters from a show option'. These were the result.
One team took the karaoke option. Here they are performing their version of the Dragon half ending theme. Sound clip
