[Prepare for icon rape... Just a warning. LOL..]
FRIGGIN CRAP O3O KAMICON WAS SO AWESOME.
where do I begin to express the epic-ness that was my weekend?
went to pick up
on Thursday while I was at work. She helped me get on my Zorc cosplay to make sure it looked right all together before we played a few rounds of Duel Monsters to waste time while my beloved was at class. After she got back we all just hung out and packed and stuff before crashing.
Friday was pure chaos. I had work but I asked to work 7-4 that day so we could get a head start on the drive down. I came to the house for my lunch hour so we could get everything finished packed and run over our checklists one final time before going back to work and then heading home at 4, where I waited for
to get back from picking
up from school. We threw the rest of the crap in the car, crammed ourselves in, and headed off!
The drive down was smooth. We used my GPS and only stopped to drop off
with our friend at Target (where I bought childrens trading cards). I worked on finished Snivy-plushie#2 for my friend Redd on the way down and that got finished really quickly, so I cuddled with him and filled it with lots of love 8D!
We got to
was it? (I cant remember all I remember was us almost parking at a trailer because my GPS decided that was her house, and then found out that she lived off of a place called Friendship and being INCREDIBLY amused.) We all had our predictable spazz attacks and glompings before going inside and cramming into her tiny room where she and I slept on the floor and
slept on the bed. After
had helped finished the Pirate Bakura sash and shed bonded with
with their combined powers of herpa-derp, we crashed around 12:30 and got up at 6, prepared for another drive and a fun-filled day!
The first thing we did was head to the hotel to drop
off (she just so happened to be staying at the same hotel as us), where we ended up running in to
! I squealed SO HARD when seeing
because she was in her purple-coat-Kaiba cosplay and it made me jizz <3! So after Id glomped her, they told us they were heading to the con so we could just follow them (wed realized after already having left that we didnt have a friggin address
SMART PEOPLES ARE WE) so we climbed in the car and followed her group to the center, where we struggled to findbut eventually foundparking.
The pre-reg line was SO MUCH SHORTER than the other one, holy cow. We almost immediately noticed a tiny Xemnas that made us squeal. There was a Sor aand Riku in the line that made us smile, too, and we recognized several people from Hamacon, Persacon, and AWA. Within 5 minutes wed probably seen 10 people we knew in some way. Yes
this was going to be a great con!
Unsure of whether or not her group had arrived yet, I texted
to let her know wed arrived and we were in line and she informed me theyd just gotten there. She got to the line just as we were preparing to go indoors, so I called her up and invited her to slip in with us (WE ARE SO NAUGHTY, but what are friends for?). We grabbed a fast photo of her with
with all 3 of the BEWD plushies (together for the first time!!!) before going inside, grabbing our badges, and exchanging names and lots of hugs!! I got to meet several people Id wanted to for a while! I loved all of them instantly, omg.
And thus the epicness of the weekend began >8]
and I were sad because wed missed Opening Ceremonies, which we wanted to attend badly, but we did find out that Ray proposed to Chelsea there. Good luck to the both of them thats really all I can say xD;;
Anyways, the first thing
wanted to do was track down LK and say hello, so we just sort of hopped in line behind her and filed through the convention trying to find him.
and I absorbed the surroundings and took in the many cosplays whilst making our little journey, only to find out he wasnt available until before his panel. Soooo we kept ourselves busy until then.
OH--I SAW AN N COSPLAYER AND GLOMPED HER <3333!!!!! She spotted me and wanted a picture; when I turned around I squeeeaaaaled xD and then attacked her. Poor thing. I think I caught her off-guard! But she was happy that I recognized her! She was adorable and it totally made my morning.
I managed to drop off Snivy-plushie to Redd in the Dealers Room and he had a mild spazz. He loved it and that made me so happy! I know Snivy went to a good home <3!
We eventually headed up to meet with everyone for LKs panel (Slifer plushie and the BEWDs had been sent to keep our spots toasty <3) and I waited outside with
to say hello. He wandered in with Marianne and I was feeling a bit internally clenched over the situation. HOLY FUH THERE HE WAS. WHAT SHOULD I SAY? HOW DO I SAY HELLO? I DONT WANT TO BE AWKWARD/OBNOXIOUS.
offered to slap me on the back to bring me out of my daze but I decided I was all right. Lucky for me LK broke the ice when he recognized me as the first Cowboy Marik. Now in this half moment of contact I realized how much like
he is--shy and genuinely friendly (he has the same energy as she does, thats the best way I can describe it). Words cannot express how happy I was that he recognized me <3 he immediately asked if Pirate Bakura was there too. I told him she was inside and he got all excited. HIS SMILING MADE ME SMILE. I was informed that it was Marianne that had come up with Cowboy Marik so I had to hug her xD! (OMFG SHE IS SO HILARIOUS I LOVE HER SO HARD) But then it was time to file inside for the panel, so file inside we did. I saw a Crow on the way and had to shout how awesome he was, and then I met up with everyone inside and sat at Pirate Bakuras feet on the front row to watch the panel. Around this time was when we ran into
, who came as Tristan and Duke, and holy crap they were so hilarious. We expected as much from them! (Im still not sure what made
think shed be a bad Duke because she was hawt, yo.)
The panel was hysterical and amazing. It was my very first YGOTAS/LK panel and I will always remember it (B! I almost jazzed from the sheer amount of Marik at that panel, omg. LK showed us the first ep of 5Ds with Marik making his commentary the entire time. <3 I LOVE MARIK SO MUCH. YOU DONT EVEN KNOW. He answered lots of questions (I was too shy to ask anything >3>) and I spent the majority of the time quietly fangasming while cuddling with Slifer and leaning back against Fluffy.
I LIKE MILKSHAKES <3!!!!
We went back to our cars and got ready to take photos, where we ran into our Bandit Keith from AWA! I helped
pin her pirate hat to the wig because it was sliding off while out there, and then something sadface happenedMY ROD BROKE D8
. It was on the car and just accidentally got pulled off and FACEPLANTED the pavement. We all knew it was going to happen and there was nothing we could do about it, so we just had to stand there and watch it fall. SADFACE. After checking it out, it survived the tumble, but the poor Rod was dented just a smidge and some of the paint had come off. Poor
felt bad but I had planned on making another one soon anyways so it didnt bother me so much IT WAS JUST SADFACE. It was my first Rod
and I am going to be retiring it now. I LOVED IT! It served me well! Now it can rest in peace! (Ive gathered materials to begin another one and I am making one for
when she does Yami Marik for my Yugi.)
We did a mini derp-shoot right there in the parking lot. I got my Rod blown off by lemon and lime (season 0) Kaiba
with it. SO MUCH KAIBA O3O MARIK WAS PLEASED.
Shortly thereafter (once wed consumed our weight in
s baked goods and Id properly molested the Kaibas) we did a complete shoot, filled with Joey getting chased by BEWD, my being raped by Ryou, Ryou attacking Bakura, Kaiba molesting himself with cash, and us worshiping
it goes on and on. I LOVE YGO SHOOTS.
After photos it was time to stuff my fat face! So we ran back inside to eat and ended up meeting back up with Marianne and LK. Now, during the panel, LK had expressed his distaste for YGO-GX, and I decided he hadnt made it to season 3 & 4, where all the crazy stuff happens that makes it worth watching, so I asked Marianne about it and she admitted theyd never gotten very far. So I asked her if she knew about the whole Jaden fusing with his hermaphrodite gay lover from his past life bit and she was all WHUUUUUUUUUUT. So I got to explain that story and she just laughed. I convinced her she needs to go back and watch it xD so well see if she does if she DOES, I am pretty sure shell make LK do it too. I hope they do, because GXs final arcs are like
.crazy. I think theyd have a field day with those
possibilities, well call them.
They wandered off for a panel (which we wished wed have gone to but we were super hungry) and
and I wandered around for a bit after that before we ended up back upstairs, regrouping to bother LK. It was here that we relaxed for an hour or two and just had some fun.
had shown back up in Vegeta and I found this more than hilarious. Veggie was always my fav DBZ character (Cell-saga-Gohan, future-Trunks, Gotenks, and Broly are just a few of the others). Vegetas always been close to my heart, and he was the one that brought
and I together (she spotted him and Trunks in my locker; she was my first friend I made 6 months after moving here to Alabalamaha X3), so I was all fangasming inside. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH,
<33333! I might try a young Goku cosplay or something, just because I can be a total spazz. I always wanted to do a DBZ cosplay, but none of my friends are fans like I am so I didnt even bother to ask if they were interested. Now I have an excuse to add one to my cosplay folder (B! But anyways, she was there in Veggie and
played a duel on her. That was pretty fun to watch, especially while she texted LOLOLOL. In the meantime I was busy being Marikmeaning I was obnoxious and loud and molested people every 5 seconds while LK just watched my antics. He told me I had the insanity part down LOLOLOL and said I was a good Marik, which TOTALLY made my day. I was squealy and happy over that x3. I also handed out some Steve nametags LOL and gave him one that said THE STEVE which I was surprised he was so willing/enthusiastic to wear. That
was hilarious. The twins wore them on their butts and
wore it on his eye (POOR GUY).
decided season-0 Kaiba wouldnt ever wear it and put it on the floorWHICH GAVE ME CONTROL OVER IT, SO SUCK IT.
After Id poked Katys butt, been raped by my own Slifer, and had startled The Steve with my tongues weird scrunching abilities (dont ask xD), we headed into another panelthe epic win that was the Radio Show panel cannot be properly expressed without pissing my pants. Poor Micah (the VA of Soul from Soul Eater; we met him first last year at Hamacon).
posted it as a series of vids on YT and I demand you watch them all! [link]
RUTH LOVES DAAAVIIID.
After that we headed back to the hotel, where we all got into our jammies and decided on the sleeping arrangements.
and I ended up on an air mattress made for one person xD but we survived. Freeza-plushie was a creeper because I stuck him there in the window, where he peeped at us from behind the curtains and watched us sleep O3O;;
. LK and Marianne were considering dropping by but they got back to their room late so we all just decided to crash (but not before wed stuffed our faces with Crack Cake (HOLY FUH). And crash we did. I slept on Slifer and Marshmallon because I didnt bring a pillow xD but we all slept pretty well.
6am cam and we all got up and got dressed in normal clothes before meeting LK and Marianne and the rest back at the hotels lobby, and then we all went out to breakfast from there. I got my coffee so I was happy xD and then
and I opted to give LK some of our Friendship Bread. After having some rather entertaining difficulty trying to open the foil and (apparently magical) wax paper, he cut the bread into slices and handed it out in a manner that reminded me of the Grinch at the end of How The Grinch Stole Christmas LOL. Then we got to watch everyone spazz over the bread (it gets the same reaction every time), so we grabbed some more loaves and handed them out. It was at that point that LK paused and stared at me.
LK: You were that Marik from yesterday O8!
Me: n__n;; Yup. That was me!
LK: SUPER MARIK!
Me: *BLUSH* THANK YOU.
LK: You were so crazy.
Me: Yeah, that happens a lot as Marik. Just wait until I do my Zorc cosplay today >:3
FFFF THAT MADE MY WHOLE WEEKEND. I AM SUPER MARIK. I CAN NOW DIE HAPPY.
I am pretty sure he didnt take me seriously when I said I was going to be cosplaying Zorc xD
We finished breakfast after hed gotten some birthday gifts and nearly cried when reading a heartfelt letter (hes so adorable it hurts), and then we headed back to the hotel so everyone could change.
did a surprise cosplay of Bulma and
almost cried/wet her pants xD I knew about it so it was especially fun to watch.
put her RiXku (Organization Riku
THE X IS SILENT. LOL IF YOU GET THE JOKE.) cosplay and
(now Ryou) helped me put my Zorc outfit on (gods that took forever) while
prepared to leave. We packed our crap and loaded our cars before heading different directions.
and the crew took
to her bus and RiXku, Ryou and I headed back to the con to meet up with
and the rest.
Compared to Saturdays chaos, Sunday was slow and predictable. I loved it because we got to just relax. I bought myself some childrens trading cards and watched
play a little, and downstairs I ended up dancing/rapping to the Yugi vs Jaden song (apparently gathering quite a crowd in the process I was pretty fixated on Ryou, to whom I was rapping LOL). We saw
later and were worried because Katys bus was really late, so but they left again and luckily she got home just fine. I stood in line with my friend Redd and got my MST and badge signed and showed LK my peenor and asked him to name itwhich he did. Zorcs wee-wee is now called Gregory xDDD. I ended up getting back in line later because, like a total derptard, I didnt get a photo with him, so a photo I got! I also gave Marianne a nametag with a doodle of Poopface on it and she was eager to accept it. This is going straight into my wallet XD! LOL I LOVE HER. HAVE I MENTIONED THAT?
The last thing we did was attend the goodbye panel for the Vas, where we all regrouped and had one final session with the awesome VAs we knew and loved. I was so sad to have to say goodbye. I was super special excited to have gotten to meet LK and Marianne, and to get to see the other VAs again (I get to see Micah yet again in a couple of months at Hamacon LOL) and I cant wait until we cross paths at another con 8D! (I just hope I wasnt obnoxious.)
Soon after that we all said our goodbyes. It was time for us to hit the road! So we threw our friends into the car and headed out, dropping them both off to their folks before finally reaching our house at 11:30. Kuro, the dog, was happy to have us back, and we crashed hard. I ended up using Leave on Monday for work because I was just exhausted, but everything is still half packed LOL. Were so lazy. Mostly me. I AM SO LAZY.
So that was my first Kamicon! Not ALL of it
but most of it. I CANT WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR. Were not sure what will happen since Ray is graduating
Guess well see who takes over.
Our next con is Hamacon, this June 3-5, and
is coming omfg I cannot wait! I AM SO EXCITED TO MEET HER IN PERSON AND TO BE HILARIOUS WITH HER. PHOTOS WILL BE TAKEN. MINDS WILL BE CORRUPTED. Redd and Diana are having their wedding AT the con, and Ive been asked to be the Flower Pharaoh as Atem (LOOOL I LOVE YOU, DIANA) so I am excited!
is going to be the Brides Maid as in Bakura in maid dress (MARIK IS JEALOUS).
is going to be in the back cosplaying Soul and will be doing the music/tech stuff LOL and Micahs going to be there too because hes friends with Redd (I expect Transformers gifts shall be given). HAMACONS GOING TO BE SO AWEOSME!!!!
Until then I am working on getting Atem completed and then I am going to work on Yugi, Yami, Joey, and Akiza <3!
I am also making a Blue Eyes plush for Marianne and LK xD its about 1/3 complete and will get some photos taken. Theyre sharing custody and this amuses me.
Tomorrow I see the movie premier with 10 other people in cosplay! Beth,
, her fiancé,
, Redd, Diana, and Katie! I reserved our seats and we take up like
2/3 of a row almost. FFF. I CANNOT WAIT. The theme for the opening is characters that didnt make it xD I am going as Neko Neko Marik (LOOOOL) and well take lots of photos! Many card games shall be played and many children shall be scarred!
So youre probably had enough reading for one morning (Ra knows this took long enough to type). HAVE A SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME DAY, YO.
