So, in terms of photo shoots, the scheduling idea didn't work out as well as I had hoped. Because the tables in Artist Alley were so small, I wasn't able to really advertise my photo shoots. And also, the con was much smaller than anticipated, so not too many cosplayers that wanted shoots.
But I still got to shoot with ~IggyBoo-EmoNemo
in her Yuuko cosplay. And later on this week, I'll be shooting with *kaiser-mony
Otherwise, the con was a lot of fun! I got to see a lot of friends, meet new people, and the con was relatively chill... except for some weird guy giving a body shot in the hotel restaurant bar. It was SOOOO weird!!!
On Saturday, I hadn't gotten much (in other words, ANY) sleep the night before, so I was quite tired for the con. We all were because we're all night owls like that.
We set up *kaiser-mony
's artist table and enjoyed the MUCH needed space behind her table. Normally it's very cramped, so it was a welcomed rest area, especially for tired pplz. And the hotel even served Pizza Hut pizza relatively cheap, so we got to have fresh pizza for lunch. :'D
came in their Inuyasha cosplays and looked awesome as always!! Unfortunately, Lisa got sick and wasn't able to come on Sunday.
You were missed!
had a table as well and we were originally supposed to do a photo shoot for her cosplay, but she was quite busy, so it never ended up happening. But it was still fun to see her.
was there too doing AWESOME caricatures! Seriously, her caricatures are so good! I wish I could draw like that!
I also got to briefly see/meet Nostalgia Critic. He was the guest of honor and was wandering through the artist alley before a panel when I recognized him. I quickly said hello and he had a good look at Mony's artwork. She had a Fear and Loathing print she was selling and Critic is a big fan of the movie. I just wanted to see him, and I got to say my hello, so I was happy. His panels were jam packed, so I decided not to go to them, and I had nothing for him to sign for an autograph. I only just started watching him about 2 months ago, so I haven't even seen all his reviews yet. (Is currently watching reviews).
On Sunday, we did the table again, wandered after a while, had some more pizza and hung out with ~Toe-Jam
in their Harry Potter cosplays.
We did fun dinner with lots of dessert for Erin and Jess and we just got home at about midnight.
I've already posted a few of the Yuuko pics, and I think I'll have 1 or 2 more to put up. But I be tired, so I'll continue to post tomorrow.
