"Don't lie. You can tell me everything."
I know things have been a little quiet on my end lately but I assure you all I’m still alive, all be it slowed down a little. I attended Toracon on Saturday and got to debut a new cosplay!
My new costume is a Blissey gijinka designed by the artist Cowslip. It ended up being really comfy and easy to move in! I was worried no one would have any clue what I was but a good deal of people guessed either Chansey or Blissey so yay! Everyone else was just amused by my giant egg. This cosplay will make an appearance at FubukiCon (Daemen College) in a few weeks and PAXEast in a month!
The con itself was pretty good. I haven’t been since 2011 because it always falls on the same weekend as PAXEast. (this year UBCon got axed for this reason). I got my badge on Friday night, it only took about 30 minutes. Not too bad and I was only out in the cold for maybe 10 minutes tops? I signed up for the cosplay contest again this year. I was really happy that they had judging times for the craftsmanship entries! The only thing that would have made it better would have been if I could have picked my time when I pre-regestered online rather than picking my time day of con. We drove in from out of town so it was a bit of a rush to get there to check in by a certain time. Judging went ok, they asked the usual questions and everyone was very nice. I’m glad they didn’t make us do a walk on, I was very unsure if I would be feeling up to it by the end of they day.
Kind of wandered around lost for the afternoon. I swear to god it took us an hour to find the Artist Alley and I found it entirely by accident. It would have really helped had the maps told you what was IN EACH BUILDING! The whole AA setup was a cluster so I gave up on going in and went out in the cold to wait in the Dealers room line. Lines outside in March in the snow are BAD! Not much of a selection but I did snag a Lucky Star/Macross F crossover figure. I hadn’t seen one for sale in a few years so I figured I should get it! There were a bunch of asian snack vendors so we figured why not grab some ramune and melon pan. No one will judge us here!
I have to say, the Masquerade was pretty darn good! I decided to go hang out with the other cosplayers and watch the skits. The kind of chaos before the masq is literally my favorite part of every con! I know, it’s weird. But it’s nice to talk to other cosplayers and enjoy the fun. Uncle Yo is really good at hosting, and the vast majority of the skits were really really entertaining! I ended up getting second place in Craftsmanship! Very happy, wasn’t sure how I would fare. Got some JoAnn gift cards so I can put that towards finishing my Morrigan cosplay for PAX! After that we went to some random Japanese buffet and pigged out before driving the hour and a half home. All in all I had fun!
Can’t wait to see some of you at Fubukicon!

oh god you still haunt my dreams
That should not be as funny as it is.
Oh my goodness, I had erased this from my mind. I want my selective memory back!
