AkiCon was such an amazing con. So many cool things happened! First time I've ever changed cosplays more than once in a day for all 3 days of it, and though I got so exhausted that even this week I'm still tired, it was so worth it all. Got to hang out with friends I miss so very much (like Kaizen), saw some really awesome cosplays that people debuted (it brought me such joy to see several oldschool favorites get some love this year, as well as new faves - like Blue Exorcist, for example), the opening ceremonies had an epic dance/video thing at the end & my bud Leslie suprised me with the debut of his Seto Kaiba cosplay during it (plus the surprise of seeing that the vid they made at PAX in front of the con's van got shown; me dressed as Mario, my bud Alec as Dave Strider, and a bunch of other Homestuck folks doing caramell dansen...LOL), enjoyed #Umbrella-Duelists
' panel ("We Love Yu-Gi-Oh"; it was okay, but thanks to having only a stupid hour for it, a majorly cool part got cut and that sucked immensely - hoping to try having it at SakuraCon and get 2 hours this time), had the most hilarious time ever with an embarassing moment (accidently farted real bad in Kaizen's hotel room from laughing a lot, and got assaulted with vanilla Febreeze shortly; had some amusing vengeance against me later at the 18+ Anime Dating Game when Kaizen started using fart jokes while I was up on stage), had some seriously awesome fun at all 3 of the Homestuck photoshoots that happened at the con (I have to say that the Homestuck fans here in Washington are some really cool folks & a blast to hang out with), wandering around Artists' Alley a lot was great (so many friends had tables there this year!), the awesomeness of when my friend Sarah's bud Kao decided to wear Airika's old Yami Yugi wig along with Jordyn's millennium puzzle and Kao's own crimson prom dress briefly to the masquerade ball, the wonderful time I had with all my roomies (I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH! *internet huggles*), made some interesting new friends (like Briana, one of Kaizen's friends from Oregon), and having a great time hanging around the con for a long time on the last day (and witnessing the crazyness of when Kaizen and Briana learned that a bag that'd been originally on top of their car and shoved inside when they arrived at the con, was in fact, coated in cat pee and made the whole car reek... let's just say it ended up being an epic battle with vanilla Febreeze and chilling in the parking lot, eating homemade moon pies...LOL).
Definitely looking forward to next year's AC and hoping it will be even more fun and amazing (and hopefully with less drama; getting in trouble with a few people over stuff is depressing and I'm sure makes the con less fun for all involved in whatever mess arises).
