So, Friday we arrived a bit later than I had hoped, both due to us and the roads. I walked around as Aelita for a little while, then had to change for my Girls’ Generation/SNSD Dance Tutorial. I had fun for the most part. I felt bad because I was stressed out, and I kept forgetting the order of the moves. >.< That being said, some of the people from last year came, and we had fun talking and dancing together. We ended up dancing to I Got a Boy (the rest of us that were left by the end), and it was a blast. We talked for a little bit, and I can’t wait for next year. We talked about maybe doing the panel again, or maybe even a SM panel.

*****Our Random I Got a Boy Dance Party: ****



Saturday, I got up bright and early and headed to the con for a photoshoot with Iconiq Photography. It was fun going around the con taking pictures. Some of my friends surprised me; I had no idea that they were coming. After the photoshoot, we wandered around until the Final Fantasy photoshoot. It was awesome seeing so many other Final Fantasy fans hanging out. I saw a few familiar faces, as well as met a lot of new ones. After the shoot, we did some photos of our own before we headed to the ballroom for the Masquerade run through. This year was much different than the last. Normally, there are quite a few dance skits, but this year there was only a few. There were many more skits with singing and music. It was awesome seeing everyone put their skills out there. Each one of them was amazing, and it made me realize how much I wish I could sing. ^^”””” But, we still had a blast performing for them with Jump style, Shuffle, Kpop, and Jpop. It was really nice talking to some old friends and speaking with new ones. All of the skits were amazing, and I really wish they would consider giving more awards for skits. Each one really deserved an award of some sort. Any who, after the skits, we hung around since my friends were trying to figure out how to get home in the weather. We headed back to the hotel and chilled, and needless to say, I passed out. ^^:


Sunday, we were up early to pack up and check out. I got dressed up as Raven and headed out to do my Teen Titans panel. I have a bad habit of speeding up when I talk, and it was really obvious this time around… But, we watched the first chronological episode where Starfire came to Earth, which was fun. After that, we did some more pictures and wandered around until we decided to leave and try to beat the snow.


So, overall, not an overly exciting con… I spent most of my time running around to my panels, doing a skit, and doing photos. There really weren’t a whole lot of panels I wanted to go to… But, I did meet up with some old friends, so it was nice to talk with them. Outside of that, it was okay. Not going to lie, I’m way more excited for Colossalcon and Ikasucon…

So, future cons!

-Zipcon: We’ll be doing a skit as Tifa, Sailor Moon, and a Silent Hill Nurse. How do we all fit? You’ll have to wait and find out. ^^”

-Animarathon: I’m not quite sure what we’re doing, but we are planning on going!

-ACen: I will be holding my Girls’ Generation Dancing Tutorial and a Supernatural panel. I’m excited to go back for my second year. My roommate and I will be doing a skit, as well.

-Colossalcon: I want to try and host whatever panels I can, as well as do a skit. I’m just not sure what I’m doing yet.

-AFO: AFO is actually earlier than last year, and it’s in July. So, I’ll hopefully be doing a dance skit with my cousin and holding some Kpop panels.

-Ikasucon is in August this year, the weekend after AFO. But, I’ll try to do panels and a skit. Plus, maybe a photoshoot or two. ^^

Other Plans:

I plan on doing a photoshoot with a Yumi cosplayer I found. She lives not too far away, so I’m really excited for that. Granted, it won’t be until spring, but still. ^^” Cosplay wise, I’m not doing anything real elaborate… I’ll be doing Charlie and/or Abbadon from Supernatural, and possibly Anna from Frozen. My sister will possibly be doing Terra (Teen Titans) to go with my Raven, and she wants to do Elsa from Frozen. We’ll see if that happens. I hope it does. ^^


Anyway, that’s all I got for now!

And, sorry for the spam of pictures... ^^""

Hey, do you have definite plans for Ikasucon (as in do you know for sure if you're going?). If you are, you should get a hold of Lindsay. she mentioned something about sharing the hotel with you if you'd like, I'm not entirely sure what her plans are, but she's apparently been trying to message you (via Tumblr I think).
Anyway, just being a middle man here~ ^_^

I was planning on it... I just checked my tumblr and didn't see anything.. I'll message her on FB and see if that works. Thanks for letting me know!
