Hokay, so. Con report.
( It seems that our hotel didn't understand the meaning of the word 'reservation', and they got chewed out for it several times.Collapse )
( I Kyo'ed myself out and started watching some Anime.Collapse )
( Then things just started getting silly...Collapse )
( The best thing about cons: the cosplayers!Collapse )
( Of course, it's not all girls in short skirts and tight tops...Collapse )
( Some other stuff happened on Saturday, too.Collapse )
( And then, the costume contest!Collapse )
( And then the concert! And late-nite Super Happy Fun Room antics!Collapse )
( But then, it was time. I wrapped things up on Sunday, bought some swag, and said my goodbyes.Collapse )
Extremely, excruciatingly long story short? I had a helluva time. Last year, I didn't go to any panels till me and James hit a swordfighting one right before we pulled out Sunday afternoon. We just drank and cut up and danced and partied all weekend long. This year, I didn't exactly have that many friends to hang with. (Excluding the Super Happy Fun Room, of course, plus a few others like Cam and the Crawleys). So instead of it being a laid-back party atmosphere, I spent most of my time attending panels, admiring female cosplayers, being glomped by female cosplayers, and - gasp! - actually watching Anime. Still got to stut around like I owned the place, and still had a great time, though it was a completely different experience than previously. It sucks that a lot of the other folks didn't have all that great of a weekend, but there's always next year. It's eleven months away, and I'm already looking forward to it!
