I was sharing a row of 4 tables with and , all of whom were such awesome people that I can't even put into words how awesome they are.
Anyhow, I wrote a short journal about it before, but we went early on the first day of the convention and requested to be relocated so that the 5 of us would be together. Surprisingly, they let us relocate (we had written an email requesting it but didn't get a response)! The only thing I regret about relocating is that if we'd stayed, we would have been closer to `dapper-owl and `sambees who are also cool people. : D
Our relocated tables happened to be adjacent to *NenaLuna (who was super nice and helpful... she made me stickers of my own bookmarks!) and the lovely pair ~Erina~Orenji-kun who were already friends of ~na-insoo. ' v ' We were visited by ~hikari-faerie a fair few times, and she was so sweet and fed us... sweets...!!
I also visited the other half of our hotel group which were ~gladyfaith, her sister, ~CL0CHE and ~OnFire247...
was supposed to be with them too, but she got held up at the border and couldn't make it to Otakon. : ( I felt really really bad for her. She is having a sale in an attempt to reimburse herself of her losses, btw; if you could pay her a visit, I am sure she would appreciate it. : )
I met ~chupachup for the first time ever when she visited me. We go way back... Oekaki Central HAHAH. She is so sweet and pretty ahh ,,* 3*,, I saw ~cutemew again too. ,,'__',,
I was sitting diagonally from another island with *finni, ~zimmay, and ~Ladre, the latter of whom I met for the first time. I saw Finni at Kinko's hehe~ xD Zimmay talked to me like I didn't know her so I got confused and later realized I was right and it was her and I was like WTF WHY
And on the second or first day ~Nikufei and her friend came and visited me as trainers Red and Green, both of whom looked dashing, but
I didn't realize until Green was there that they were cosplaying off of MY DESIGNS
Wow I look so out of place LOL
~Omar-Dogan came by and visited me all the way from the dealer's room (thank you) because I never got to go to the dealer's room. : D I am glad I actually knew who he was 'cause I would have looked like a complete douchebag LOL. <__> Also *oh8 was there talking to him at my table and I DIDN'T KNOW WHO HE WAS. I felt so stupid adfjkgfhg
We went to the Hentai room and saw a beautiful piece (really!) where The Hulk was being cornered by Wolverine and his claws, except they weren't claws, they were penises. We died laughing and then we saw the title: "Hulk Not Want" and died all over again HAHAHAHAH
The convention had a ridiculous event where the fire alarm went off on the second day... can you imagine 4 circumferential blocks crowded with sweaty nerds who were forced out of an anime convention? Well then here is a picture:
I was not in the best of moods having been forced to wade my way through a sea of sweaty nerds for a breath of fresh air
But then I was SO SAD afterwards 'cause I realized I lost the 8O button that ~Nikufei made for me for my Ema cosplay... T_T I think I lost it in the mob of sweaty otaku and I got even sadder after I knocked over JC's oreo smoothie T_T...
But I took that fire alarm opportunity to abuse ~na-insoo's PSP by playing Guilty Gear on it. I had never played real fighting games before, but apparently I took to it well (???). So in the evening, Chris and JC took me to the gaming hall (IT WAS HUGE O_O) which thankfully had circulating air because they said they didn't want to subject me to what men can produce. ANYWAY, I was playing with May (my favourite ) and I actually did better against the pro player than most! I was excited, but really, I think it's cause they couldn't read my moves 'cause I was so n00b LOL. But I was happier after that!
There is a lot I haven't written that I should write and stuff is out of order and stuff, but too much happened so... I'm sorry if I forgot to mention something about you! T_T
JAAAAAYYYYYYYCCCCCCEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you already... T_T Thanks for teaching me the basics of the waves so I could level up when Jay tried teaching me HEEHE. You are so funny and you always make me laugh! Thank you for spending your first day making the display for me with Chris... ;-; I loved singing with you and Chris (or trying to) 'cause you always get the baseline and it sounds WAY COOL. Also thank you for the Nia artbook, you always know what I'm gay for. I can't wait to see you again at AE. ,,*v*,, LOVE YOU LOTS
CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I can't thank you enough for accommodating us for like 10 days! You and your parents have my utmost gratitude. And you are so right... we developed so many inside jokes within those 10 days it's not even funny ahahah-GIRUGAMESH. Also your Chinese impression kills me EVERY FUCKING TIME but you knew that already. I don't know how you do it so authentically. I really hope I get to see you again next year because I miss you 'cause you are so adorable and squishy and sweet ahkldfaal... I don't think I've laughed so hard so much in such a concentrated amount of time.
MIIIIIIKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII AAAAAAAAAHHH WHY YOU SO CUTE!!! I have such a tomboy complex... I want one!! I was so worried when you got lost on your way to the hotel, but I was so happy you could make it! I am SO freaking glad that you were our roommate, you have no idea... it just wouldn't have been complete. I loved getting to know you better and being in your adorable yet badass company. I really miss hugging you and I hope we can see each other soon! Thanks for the invitation to your place for AX... I am considering going next year JUST FOR YOU.
SHILIN!!!! I wish we got to spend more time togedurr! You should actually stay at our hotel next time we decide to table together. I remember we got to spend way more time with you at AX08. Even at our tables we were so far awayyyyyy! At least I still got to harass you. ;v; Thank you again for the lunch run, though, I enjoyed surprise B. O-oh and the pen I stole off you LOLOL I be so cheap. ;-;lll
...I have to thank you for that Toothless tip 'cause I made like $300 off that one piece alone HAHAHAHAHA. 8U It was like... making $100 per hour. ;-;
Hahah you are such a dork!!! I mean I knew it already, but seeing it IRL is even more powerful. Thanks for dropping by to chat! It was great finally getting to meet you after all these years. It actually felt like we'd already met before somehow... so natural! I love it when it's like that. But you still owe me food, my Jewy friend!
It was so nice meeting you two! It is always cool to meet friends of friends I've heard so much about. Noa, you are all tiny and dainty ahhh! Thank you for the Lust print And Jay... the first time I talked to you, you had an Optimus Prime head on. Thanks for teaching me how to do cool stuff with my arms!! I need to practice them. : D
YOU ARE SOME SORT OF MODEL RIGHT? SO PRETTY AND FASHIONABLE I can't get over it!! Thank you for dropping by over and over and for the Ravenclaw ID! *guffawing nerd hi5* I am so happy I finally got to meet you since our Oekaki Central days. (I was 14 omg crazy!!!)
AUGH you guys!! I am sad that we couldn't eat dinner together. ; 3; sorry about that mishap... wish that sushi place didn't LIIIIEEEEE to us. I nonetheless got to hang around you a bit, though, which was great!
You were such a dear! Thank you for being so sweet and feeding us... sweets at every opportunity. <__> I hope you like my shitty chibis 'cause I really can't draw in public LOL.
Hey Faith, I thought I would have the opportunity to get to know you better this time, but I didn't... OTL It is a shame 'cause I think you are a really swell kid. It was still cool to see you at breakfast in the same hotel teehehehehee *`__`*
I am glad you were my neighbour! You were so pleasant and mellow in contrast to our retarded ways. Also I noticed that you left your scissors behind!! I think Chris picked it up and he plans to mail them to you or something. Thank you for showing me how your sticker thingy worked even though I still don't get it. It was SO COOL! *____* Thank you also for your help while I was gone playing video games with a buncha boys.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to drop by!! I get so freaking flattered by it ahahaefhae... Good luck with finishing all of your commissions, and see you at AE10! : )
Lisha, I love that new Spade print!! It is so pretty ahh! I have a feeling I will see you next year again somewhere... I always do xD
I saw you so many times randomly ahahaha Thanks for saying hi, though! I appreciate it even if you think you are creeping. : D;; We thought it was hilarious that you lay across your table while after the fire alarm fiasco lol...
Zimmay LOL DON'T ACT LIKE I DON'T KNOW YOU. It confuses the shit out of me!! I remember I drew your pirate character at AX08 and you coloured it and fed us evil cookies and everything! I just don't remember faces all too well unless they are distinctive... T_T;
You should have introduced yourself to me LOL wtf... I didn't realize who you were when you dropped by until I dropped by your table! TSKTSK... but thank you always for your support and kind words, I really enjoy them! It was a pleasure to meet you : D
Also thank you to everyone who bought from me and my pals! I just can't thank you enough. Also thank you ~animegirl000 for the Red print and phone strap! So cute! xD
Pictures of cosplays
flash is a terrible function... but a NIAAAAAAAAAAAAA
JC and Chris made the display for me right before I arrived at Chris's place ;-; It was my first time having a display stand!
...towards the end of the convention, people wanted the last copies on the display so the display was barren by the end hahah. I sold out of a lot of prints! I was happy ;-;
LOL I don't think either of us realized you gave me 2, Chris!! SPAMMMM
(I made them write on them to me hehehehehehe )
Here is one of the many memories we had at our hotel... drawn by
