My very late Otakuthon journal! Overall the con was really fun, definitely much better than last year, because, I made tons of friends in both Montreal and Toronto, so I didn't have to be alone like last year
However, my body was not completely recovered from Otakon, so I was being like a dead zombie everyday orz
I thought going to anime conventions two weeks in a row was really great idea, but actually it was not, because my body was unable to catch up on so many things due to lack of youth and energy
Haha I felt like an old granny.
All right, I believe people want to read my con experiences rather than my body energy topic, so I will stop to write about that.
OK, let's start to write about my con experiences!
Day 0: Came to the convention centre directly from my workplace for pick up my badge. There was no line, so I could get my badge very easily! After I picked up my badge I met
. We were chatting about our future cos plan and our day life for a few hours. Then I met
and my lovely Toronto people Saga Show, Tomomi, Arisa, and Alice. We went to poutine restaurant in old Montreal for the dinner!!
Sorry for being very bad tour guide XD I have to be more familiar with a place in old Montreal
This was my first time ever to had a poutine in my life LOL So fail to be Canadian XDXD But my first poutine was really good especially the one with mushroom and onion! After we had a poutine we bought an ice cream for the dessert and went back to Chinatown while eating ice cream.
and I had to leave, so we said bye to Toronto people and headed back to home. After I went back to my home, I started to repaint my Yamuraiha's staff. I was supposed to cosplay as Yamuraiha on Friday, but paints came off from my staff with unknown reason, so I had to repaint all part orz This is the reason why I couldn't cos as Yamuraiha on Friday.
Day 1: Cosplayed as Jillian Chen from Cardfight!! Vanguard! My first time ever to cos as a character from Vanguard! I feel like I really want to cos as Asaka and Misaki in near the future! Unlike YGO, I only had one Vanguard card at this time *fail* Also, there was no Leon sama or Sharlene, so it was very difficult to cos as her without them
The morning was little bit bored, because there weren't many people at there, but still taking photos of cosplayers and chatting with my local friends were really fun since I don't usually see them outside of con or photoshoot!! I hang out with my lovely people from Toronto in the evening!! OMG!! I was so happy to see
and Jelly King again. They were so cute as usual *nosebleed* Unfortunately my phone battery died, so I couldn't take a photo with them together orz Right before I went back to my home, I went to dealers room to buy few vanguard card packs for my future Asaka cos. The funny thing was the seller noticed my cos and he gave me 10% off for cards LOL Sorry I am just collecting cards for fun and my cosplay, but thank you
Went back to home around 10:30PM and was painting Yamuraiha's staff until 1AM. YES! I was finally able to fix my staff *died*
Day 2: Cosplayed as maji love 2000% version of Ren. Even if I tested to cos as him at Otakon, I still looked like a hobo orz
Ren sama why your outfit doesn't have fabrics on your shoulder parts? I learned if an ordinal person without sexiness wore that costume it would turn into like a hobo. Even my Ren looked like a hobo, the shoot with Saga Show who was cosing as Syo chan and Alice who was cosing as Shining were amazing, but I was almost die of laughing, because Saga Show and Alice were kept talking about homos while my photos were taken. I was being such a stupid and awkward hobo Ren at that time LOL Though I was overexcited to get photos taken in front of blue walls, because blue is the colour of Masato. I was almost trying to lick and kiss that walls /kick Huhuhuhu RenMasa is my favourite homo OTP in Uta puri, so I am not regretting about that. After the shoot was over we went to photo booth in dealer's room where my
Tokiya was working. We were finally able to take photos together with Tokiya right before dealer's room closes. YAY! ALL HAIL S CLASS!! My Tokiya was such a sweetheart, because she lets me harassed her back/throw away from window. I wish I could ask her to harass her butt too.
Oh! Please don't call a police, I'm just an ordinal hentai oyaji.
Day 3: Cosplayed as Yamuraiha. I was planning to kidnap Sharrkan cosplayer, but there was no Sharrkan cosplayer on Sunday orz Also, my Aladin
couldn't make it, so I thought I would be a lonely Yamuraiha, but I met many beautiful Magi cosplayers. The happiest thing was I was finally able to take photos with Sindbad cosplayer!! Oh! My lord why you're so beautiful!
I wish I could ask her contact info….. I totally forgot to bring my cos card, so I even couldn't give my cos card to all magi cosplayers at that time orz SHAME ON ME!! After the mini Magi meet up, I became a cosplay photographer mode and did a shoot with
. She is so beautiful as Goddess!!! I couldn't stop smile, squeal and giggle when I was taking photos of her! Then we met up with Toronto people again after the shoot and kept chatting until they left. Miss you guys so much
Don't forget I always love you guys forever!! After I dismissed my super sexy gangs, I met up with
. WAHHHHHH!! I felt like I haven't seen them for so long, maybe it's because I spent most of time with people from Toronto in this year, so it was a bit hard to getting in touch with my local friends, so I was so happy that I finally able to spent time with them
We had a supper at st-huber and lot of fun to talk about our future cos plans!!! I am so excited to join their Sound Horizon panel in next year at Otakuthon! I also want to go to more cons and shoots with them!!
Yup this is it!! So exhausted, but fun!! It was really nice to see so many new people and received nice comments on my cosplays.
My only regret is that I couldn't see many local people who I wanted to meet ;_; I wish you guys had a wonderful time as me.
My con for this year is over, but my shoot plans are not done yet. Moira and Brothers Conflict shoots are coming in near the future! I am going to cos as Ionia for Moira shoot and Natsume for Brocon shoot.
Can't wait to harass people *gross*
Moira shoot will depend on my moving day to Toronto, but it seems my current work want me to stay in the company for a little bit longer,
so I may stay in Montreal a bit longer if they give me a good offer. Brocon shoot will be held in Toronto with almost full brothers + Juli. I will just buy his suit, pant, tie, and shirt at somewhere else. Yay for closet cosplay!
For next year, I haven't decided what cons I am going to attend, but I am aiming to go to Katsucon and AX! I really want to go to Katsucon, because most my friends in the U.S are going to attend that con, so I want to join
It is too early for this, but here are my future cos plans for this year and next year:
Asahina Natsume from Brothers Conflict (Winter shoot with Toronto people)
Asahina Yusuke from Brothers Conflict
Suigintou from Rozen Maiden (will probably cos as her at AN 2014)
Souseiseki from Rozen Maiden
Shinomiya Natsuki from Uta no Prince sama (school uniform and maybe maji love 2000%)
Narumi Asaka from Cardfight!!Vanguard (Normal outfit and school uniform version in season 3)
Tenjouin Asuka from YuGiOh GX (I really wanna debut as her at Katsucon)
Alibaba from Magi
Tachibana Makoto from Free! (I haven't decided which version yet!)
