SMASH 2014 Report- SATURDAY

Apollo | Klavier | Clay

THE BOY IS FINE MINE!!

Whooop, here's my late SMASH report and as usual, it's kinda photo heavy so I'm splitting it into two parts.... ALRIGHT!! LET'S DO THIS! ☆ 

First off, let's begin with the Amazing Adventure that transpired on Friday night+*+*+

This time around, I was traveling with a moe gal, ikemen and bishoujo: CherriJeffers and Kaori

image

SPOT THE ODD ONE OUT.

We had some time to spare after dropping off our luggage, so we decided to grab a bite at maccas (that's Mcdonald's for you non Aussies!) 

BAD IDEA.

image

Behold. Half the reason why we ended up running around the airport. 

We were so caught up in arguing whether they're Mcdonald's COOKIES or BISCUITS that by the time we had checked the time again we realised we only had 4 minutes left to catch our flight.

At that point we hadn't even gone passed security check yet. 

We made a mad dash towards the security check point. My boots set off the metal detector, and since they're a huge hassle to put on again I decided to run in my socks.

Jeffers drafting the team. 

Lady Luck was obviously on holiday because our gate happened to be STUPIDLY FAR AWAY, so by the time we got there we were informed that we had most certainly missed our flight. 

"There's only one flight left going to Sydney in 7 minutes."

"You'll need to rebook your tickets at the service desk upstairs, collect your luggage from downstairs, come back up to drop the bags off and get to the gate." 

All in 7 minutes. 

I am pretty sure the flight was delayed or something because there is no way we actually did all of that in 7 minutes, and most certainly not with the uncooperative old man working at the service desk. He was adamant that we would not make it, all the while he was rebooking our tickets. Kaori handled the booking while the rest of us ran back downstairs to collect our suitcases, brought them back up and dropped them off. 

We were welcomed back by the people at the security check point who looked confused: 

"Didn't you girls just come by before?"

Apparently I was in such a daze, they had actually let us through without much hassle.

Again, I had to run without my boots, but luckily the gate was MUCH closer and we ACTUALLY MADE IT. 

What's more, me and Kaori actually had a LOT of nice leg room! Jeffers and Cherri were situated at the back, in which we joined them later because it was pretty empty. We ended up helping Jeffers with her sailormoon charms throughout the entire flight LOL. 

We arrived at the hotel at around close to midnight, and woo it was SO NICE!!

image

TWO BASINS!!! A TRAVELING COSPLAYER'S DREAM!!!!

image

Last Minute Cosplay Making Area. 

See that black fabric on the table? I was burning them until 4am making roses for Kaori's Luna dress HA HA HA+*+*

image

I'm surprised we didn't set off the smoke alarm (considering our luck that day.)

AT ONE POINT I WENT TO SLEEP I DON'T REMEMBER.


SO, THE ACTUAL CON!!!

Actually I don't remember most of Saturday so I'm just going to post photos and commentary ok this post is long enough as it is:

image

MELBOURNE BABES!! Leo as Mako, Rachel as herself (the best cos), Jeffers as Artemis, Kaori as Luna, Cherri as Usagi....UMMM I'M SO SORRY I DON'T REMEMBER KAGEYAMA'S NAME SORRY;;; and Kylie as Junie!! You girls are my faves to travel with!! 

image

THE WRIGHT ANYTHING AGENCY TABLE!! 

Trucy | Lana | Edgeworth | Phoenix | Apollo

Thanks for letting me steal you guys for photos even though you were all so busy ; v ; ALSO I LOVE YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS GROUP HAPPEN!! It started when me and Leanne planned to do Clapollo and then it just GREW....! You are all so in character too it's kind of scary HAHA.

image

DID I MENTION WE HAD BOTH OF THE GAVIN BROS?????? 
Ryan sensei, thanks for letting us mess up your wig for that one photo that should hopefully appear soon LOL. Lisa, thanks for putting up with my gross noises and all my klapollo requests ahahahaAA ^q^///

like this shot

image

I would have asked you guys to get closer but I wasn't sure how creepy I was being--

image

THIS IS WHAT PERFECTION LOOKS LIKE.

image

give me a moment to recover from the perfection that is my friends

image

MR. WRIGHT PLEASE THERE IS ONLY ROOM FOR ONE COCKBLOCKER HERE

image

/shoves Junie outta the way

image

wait am I dead

is this heaven

(The taller Apollo couldn't remember Clay's name and I gave her so much crap for it hahaha DW WE COOL BRO WE COOL) 

image

"BEGONE, EVIL URCHIN DEMON!!!"

Shout out to Eva for being the most perfect and dedicated Jinxie- she PAINTED the entire pattern on her yukata(?) SHE'S RIDIC!!!!

image

LOOK 'POLLO!! WE'RE MATCHING!!! ☆

image

Look at this fop using Jinxie's tray as a mirror

image

PEDALS!!!!!!!!!! Ticky as Midousuji, Splitbricks as Onoda, Simonblackquill as Toudou, and  Kiryuuyoshiya as Makishima!

Thanks so much for bringing pedals into SMASH ^q^ I think these cuties were the only yowapedal cosplayers at the con?? It was pretty neat finding out Onoda was the same Naegi I met last year hehe. 

image

Ah AAAH a very sweet girl gave this card to me!! I'm afraid I've forgotten who gave this to me though ;0; ....but thank you so much! This is such a cute idea <3


image

I also met warutsu who drew me beautiful T2 ;0;// 

image

It was only until I got back that I recognised this style because she had also drawn me a picture of Tsurugi Yuuichi last year akslhg I'M SO SORRY IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO REALISE;;!!!

image

One of my favourite tables to visit!! PheeLily and Sally were always so smiley, fun and adorable to hang with! Not to mention their goods made me happily open up my wallet a couple of times, oof! 


Below are some Clapollo shots huehue

image

This wasn't even planned. Leanne just happened to have white material for reasons I forget and suddenly she asked for my jacket and I started screaming BECAUSE I KNEW WHAT SHE WAS GONNA DO....

image

WAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

image

WE SOOOOOOO DAMN FIIIIIIINE

image

"munchmunchmunchmunch oh yeah he's definitely dead."

We had a photoshoot at the end of the day but we're still waiting on photos~ will post them later when we receive them!

That night, I met up with some Sydney pals for dinner and it just so happened one of our friends invited Reika along??!?!? 

Yeah that Reika.

It was a huge group so we were pretty much in our own little groups- I was in the "I-know-of-Reika-but-am-indifferent" group. While a few of our other friends were freaking out and adamant in not facing her because they had removed all their cosplay makeup off LOL it was super cute. 

We just so happened to walk passed a sushi train restaurant where Leo, Kylie and Rachel were eating at and snapped a photo of us:

image

I'm the grown ass adult with an icecream cone in my mouth. 

I went up to the window and pointed in a direction, mouthing:

"R E I K A !!!"

THE ENTIRE TABLE SHOT UP. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYONE PACK THEIR BAGS AND PAY FOR THE BILL SO QUICKLY BEFORE.

The group with Reika was already walking wayyy ahead at that point and I needed to catch up so I'm not sure what happened to the restaurant crew LOL; 

Anyway. That's basically all I remember from Saturday!! 

Tune in next time...FOR HAIKYUU SUNDAY!!! *+*+*+*+

I'm so going to SMASH next yr then C:
Haha that sounds only like Wai-con, oz comic con and supanova are not too tight-knit. I've never been to any con outside of perth so I wouldn't know what to compare ^^;
Maybe you should visit perth in the mean time :D

Chancake Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014   Digital Artist
Good good!! Will you consider fantrading? :) 

Ah, that's probably the one I was thinking of. One of my friends helped me sell stuff at Wai-con and kept telling me how lovely the crowd was! 

OH I would love to one day! I'm hoping to get back into trading and possibly traveling to more cons for that! :)
