SO much happened on this day, I apologize if I forget to mention anyone because cripes, there's no way I would remember every single thing that happened.
And it starts ... WITH A FAIL:
When we arrived at the con, we met up with
who gave me the most surprising headbutt to my mouth-- I mean hug. ilu Irene heehee
She changed into Magnet!Luka too! So cute
thanks for looking after my table and keeping me company bubs ;3;
I also met
(FUCK MAN, WE DIDN'T TAKE ANY PHOTOS WITH EACH OTHER SOB) who made a hot Xingke. Thank you so much for manning my table and the AJ bookmarks waahhh Sorry, forgot who I stole this photo off, let me know if you read this!
came to my table a couple of times to do questionable things to me- NOT THAT I MIND HO HO HO
wish I could have talked to you more, you're so bubbly and friendly heehee.
*STEALS PHOTOS OFF YOU TOO*
She came over with
and tried to pay for keyrings- NICE TRY. So I chased after her and paid her back. I sure showed you. But apparently she gave
the money when I was away- fuck you guys man.
Same thing happened with everyone else who refused to not take my stuff for free. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE.
ran past my table in DAZZLING SLOW-MO AH~*~*~*~ A-AZ! IT'S YOU~~~
and then 'heyhisorryigottadosomethingbrb'
yeah but we eventually got to properly talk to each other later on and it was fabulous.
were there too and gosh, everyone was just so happy and adorable.
arrived later with EPIC SAD MAKE UP for her Oichi cosplay
cosplaying characters from Basara!! (and
at the back with an epic banana on her head)
Before the cosplay comp, I went backstage with the Basara group.
LOL FREAKIN' MINAMI so in character too gdi
They won best group AND DAMN RIGHT THEY DESERVED IT or I would have flipped a shit because they were amazing ok.
changed to Miku later on and we got bored together during the quiet hours of cosplay comp.
AND IT WAS TOO FREAKIN' HOT TO WEAR MY SCARF ALL THE TIME UGH.
Perhaps it was the heat that contributed to it all, but
had to endure a lot of my bitching about really annoying people who came by the table. I don't mean the customers, most people were really nice, but I had a lot of weirdos who just came up to me to tell me the most irrelevant random shit
that I had no fucking idea about.
SPEAKING OF ANNOYING PEOPLE...
Jesus christ guys, not all cosplayers want
to be touched ok. NO I DID NOT GET GROPED IF YOU WERE WONDERING, but just sayin', if you want a hug, people MOST likely won't say 'no' if you just politely ASK.
when someone suddenly drapes their arms around you from behind
while making incomprehensible noises I'll tell you that. I KNOW, I KNOW, conventions are just for ~*~*funzorz*~*~ but it's not fun to be creeped the fuck out while having to smell otaku perspiration 'kay.
ON WITH THE ACTUAL HAPPENINGS--
After the cosplay comp,
came over to my table and-- FFFF THE CUSTOMERS SHE ATTRACTED MAN. HAW HAW. Yeah, we were totally not judging all the guys who ogled at her. Business was good.
drew pretty sweet representations of this incident:
haha you guysss
gave us these lip-shaped lollies and I totally did not waste them by dropping them when I was trying to do dumb stuff
nope.oh hay, Cee, so we DID take a photo together. sort of.
There was a nice guy who offered to look after my table for me but haha what why would I trust my money to a complete stranger idk.
I don't really know what to say to people who say "I watch you on dA!" anymore, other than "thanks!" and then I kill the conversation right there sob. Or I ask them what their dAs are and I kill the conversation again with "oh sorry, doesn't ring any bells" GOD I SUCK.
being bitched at to gtfo by a certain shitty Animania security guard with a stick way up his ass
packing up for the day, we headed off to China Town for dinner with
's dad. I FINALLY MET HER COOL DAD. WHO LOOKS. SO GODDAMN YOUNG. THEY LOOK LIKE SIBLINGS JESUS CHRIST. And he was just. Super cool man.
We went to have Korean, and
being the Korean-food-virgin was willing to try anything, so I randomly pointed to a dish on the menu for her.
SHE TOOK IT LIKE A MAN AT FIRST-- and then
had to finish off her spicy noodles for her. Az, I am disappoint.
After the meal, I went off to Capitol with
(well, she walked us there but she had to go home).
This is where I discoveredI AM UTTERLY HOPELESS WITH UFO CATCHERS.
At which I learned at the price of an empty coin purse and shattered pride but it's okay I can live with it.
Throughout both Manifest and Animania, I was yearning for a plain
Kirby plushie (none of that hat rubbish PSHAW!), and there was a UFO catcher with TINY LITTLE CUTE ONES~*~*~
tried so many times to catch one of these assholes, at which
just STEPS IN AND SUCCESSFULLY OBTAINS IT IN WHAT...1-2 GOES?
I don't even want to know how much I spent on this bastard.
The good thing about those UFO catcher places, is that they have those photo sticker booths to let you spend the rest of your coins on- and you know you at least won't come out empty-handed
ha ha ha...jesus christ hahaha
And I realized IT WAS MY FIRST TIME TAKING PHOTO STICKERS WITHOUT ASIANS WOAHH (minus the half asian in you,
but let me bask in my moment of special snowflakeyness).
And then I took a taxi back to the hotel all by myself~
and James used some weird voice warper app on his iphone and played retarded noises under the door when I was taking a shower.
Then we recorded each other saying 'wee cuff' and played it on reverse for the rest of the night. You try it.
