Con Report 2008!
We arrived a little late because we, of course, are always fashionably late. Or unintentionally late. But either way, we made it alive, and before we even got inside, we got attacked for pictures. It was fabulous... or so we thought then.
After getting checked in and getting our badges, we were attacked multiple more times, and every time we stopped, a crazy amount of people came to take pictures. It was really rather hard to get anywhere, but when we FINALLY managed to break free, we found a cute set of 4 Links!
Then we got attacked again. XD;
Luckily, we managed to escape in time to get a shot of two Fyes! The one with the eyepatch was so cute and had perfect hair! It was very excellent.
Also, some TeniPuri people.
Since there was nothing we wanted to see (like, NOTHING. It was TERRIBLE.) we headed down towards the artist alley first. On the way there, we encountered some good cosplays...
Such as Havoc...
Once in artist alley, we looked around a bit, bought a few things, and generally enjoyed ourselves, though we were STILL bombarded for pictures. However, our Haruhi was soon drawn away by the allure of food, and so we had to stop for her (and most everyone else... XD) to eat. While we were chilling, we ran across some familiar faces...
The twins! We were very excited, so our twins took some pictures with theirs.
While there, we also ran into a Marth, a set of Angelic Layer angels, a Pit, a girl working for Team Rocket, and a Seto Kaiba.
After we resurfaced, we headed towards the Ouran meeting, which was, of course, at the very front of the place. We still kept getting stopped, but we also managed to stop some other people!
Mew Ichigo and Mew Retasu!
Shuichi! She was so cute, she gave me a hug and got a picture of us together!
Legend of Zelda group!
On the way there, we also ran into another Kasanoda, so our Kasanoda took a picture with her~
After that, we went off to the Yuugiou gathering, and got some other nice pictures along the way.
Epic Pit v. Samus battle!
Ness and Lucas!
Lord Darcia from Wolf's Rain... he was even on stilts!
A Tsubasa/xxxHOLiC group!
Akari, from Aria the Animation! She was very cute.
L, with a table of sweets! This was epic.
Upon reaching the Yuugiou gathering, we obtained many hilarious and awesome pictures!
Dark Magic Girl~
This Yami Yuugi was pretty epic... and wearing like 4 inch platforms... XD
...and checking out Otogi?
Afterwards we met some Tales people on the way to the Tales gathering.
We also found some X/1999 people:
Kamui and Princess Hinoto
We also found a Davy Jones! XD
And a Companion Cube from Portal. The cake is a lie!!
We made it to the Tales gathering, and Ami and Air went to go take pictures of all the Tales people... meanwhile, the rest of us threw rose petals over the edge of the balcony. XD;;; It was fun, and our fans and customers adored us~
Anyway. Tales people. XD;
That being done, we happened to run into Mikoto (sapling)! She introduced us to greyfinch and promised to meet up later. After that, we headed down to the dealer's room for some LAST MINUTE SHOPPING! YAY. On the way there, however, we encountered an epic Princess Peach.
And a nice Death Note group.
Afterwards we had dinner which took all of forever, but was rather delicious at the Calfornia Tortilla, and then came back for the Prince of Tennis gathering. And we rode an escalator...
The epic Host Club way!!
As it turned out, the Prince of Tennis gathering consisted of two people. XD;; But we took their picture!
With nothing else to do afterwards (and having been asked to pretend to beat someone up for a picture and getting filmed getting killed by Light and the Death Note AND getting made into a conga line and then getting yelled at for it) we went to a Phoenix Wright Mock Trial! It was pretty amusing, and there was an EPIC Edgeworth cosplayer who got to go up onstage. She was PERFECT in character and it was so amazing. Oh, and the Phoenix was like "yeah... magenta pink does make me feel pretty good..." XDD
And then we went back to the hotel. After a photoshoot and some snacks, we died and went to sleep.
NEXT DAY! We woke up and went to breakfast and then were BACK AT OTAKON YEAH!
We found a nice Isaac from Golden Sun:
someone had written "Awesome" on the window in duct tape again XD;
After that, we went back to artist alley where we met none other than Jaida Jones (ladyjaida)! And while we were fangirling her, she fangirled us in our Saiyuki costumes! She actually is a Saiyuki fangirl too! It was the coolest thing ever. I felt speshul knowing/talking to/being fangirled by an INTERNET CELEBRITY!! XD;;; Because that's how cool I am.
Next, we had our meeting with Mikoto! She was really busy, as she always is, and was meeting up with Lain and Jill for a Law of Ueki shoot, but we still chatted for a few minutes. I was so thrilled to actually meet her in person after knowing her for like 4 years and never actually meeting her! She took a picture with us, for old Trio times' sake.
Wanko: ur gay.
Gojyo: ur gay!
Hakkai: Yare yare! -O______^;;
We also got a picture of their Law of Ueki group... it was pretty snazzy!
Meanwhile, Ami got some nice pictures of a Luke :D
And a Nataku, from Houshin Engi.
After spending the day mostly shopping, we finished off with Veronica's Final Fantasy gathering, then headed home. We were all next to dead tired, but it sure was fun! Already, we can't wait for next year!
