WOW...Otakon was WOW... Seriously. |
Thursday morning my dad dropped me off at Katrina's house because I needed to get to Pre-Reg some how... and they wouldn't be able to take me Friday because they needed to go to PA to pick up my sister from CTY. ANYHOW. When I got to Katrina's house, I had 4 bags xD... 1 bag for fabric and materials, 1 for Kei, 1 for my chi costume and Allen costume (not yet done), and toiletries. RIGHT away, I asked to borrow needle and thread...and sewing machine xD; Yea I needed my Allen costume to be DONE -_-! So...recruiting Katrina as always...we sewed for a while ;D
Next we went to Lunch..in..OMFrilly gosh..Lolita clothes.. at the Mall....Some big ol' bald guy was like "WHOA... She looks like she from that show..that 'I Survived a Japanese Game Show'!! WOW. And you look like this girl in this book I'm reading" .............Sketchy. ;A;.......
Finally got to Otakon..and boy..was it hot. We sat on the stairs, but then they kicked us off o_o; We played cards for a while..but slapping concrete isn't very fun xD; Finally Kei called to get me in =_=; I was on the other side of the entire convention X______x; So we set up the Rakuen booth for a while. Around... 4:50 ish Katrina called to tell me the line was moving. Running back...by myself in good ol' maid clothes down baltimore (not cool), was quite thrilling. So I got my badge from Kei, and now Katrina and her family needed to get their badge. WHILE In this badge line, some guy asks to take my picture. So I go, okay. BUT ..not just the front..but ALSO the BACK O_o... Wtf? "Can I also take a picture of you from your backside?" <--- WTF, mate? Well I ..sorta did, ish. BUT WTF >>? Then off to dinner... I forgot what I got or where we went... Pizza I think o_O? Anyhow, so we went back to Katrina's house and I was hand sewing again my Allen costume xD. We also were watching the season finale of Hopkins ;D~ Then RIGHT TO BED X_x around..11:30...Tomorrow = Big opening day....
Friday was first opening day of Otakon. I cosplayed as Chi from Chobits...except this time... I was Bakery maid Chi with PANTIES on my head xD (Mainly to hide damaged wig section and to attract attention =p...which I did) I helped out at Rakuen and it was fun~ Despite the fact that I broke a zipper D:, it was still very fun. =_= Food matters at Otakon are always problematic.. Well I think I skipped lunch, and the lines at Harbor place are SO HORRENDOUSLY long; Poor Kei had to wait and starve for a few more hours to get dinner ._.; Mucho sorry!
Right after dinner went straight back home to Katrina's house. I NEEDED TO FINISH ALLEN COSTUME D:!!!! I stayed up till 12:20 ish to finish.. DAMN it was a good costume. Very UNCOMFORTABLE, and immobile, but it was good ;D
SATURDAY I was Allen Walker in Crown Clown suit, but very early in the beginning when he is still in China, so he has bandages over his chest. The problem with that for me was I couldn't breathe properly xDDD So we had to redo the wrapping a lot of times. After a while I realized that it kept SLIPPING O_O;;; So I kept tugging... and it was making me feel kinda insecure.... Well I couldn't help out at Rakuen very much on Saturday at all D: My hands were clawed and gloved..and couldn't walk without assistance X_x;
We planned to go to the Yamaguchi Kappei panel, because right after that was the JRock Bands panel with all the band members! The bands were DaizyStripper, MarBell, and the Underneath.
Yamaguchi Kappei's panel seemed so much shorter than Seki Tomokazu's last year for somehow o-O; Well he was still funny like Seki, but they kept referring to One Piece and L =_=;; Sadly, no one man yaoi scene with him xDDDD No one asked, but he did do Ryuichi's voice at a point. Other than that, he was just interesting to watch. We go in the front of the line too ;D SOOOO We could get front middle seats for the next panel xDD
OKOK soo...WELCOME the Japanese bands ;D I took a video clip of their introductions:
( WHAT HAPPENED AT THE PANEL!? CLICK TO FIND OUT!Collapse )
...I'm separating Sunday..this post seems a tad bit too long xDDD NEXT POST in the next entry xD;
