Heya guys! Been a while since I last posted, hasn't it? XD Well, I really need to get back to being "alive" on here first of all. Hoping to post some stuff this week! But first, my A-Kon FULL REPORT!
THURSDAY June 5, 2014:
So for a first, since I was volunteering for A-Kon this year, I worked on Thursday. I worked around registration from 3:30 to 9:30. Those that don't know, I went as Lelouch vi Britannia/Zero(or One for those who watch Code MENT. XD) from Code Geass. I got to reunite with some of my awesome friends that day and it was really great. Especially when working, people alot of times would come up to me and say hey, hi, what's up, etc. to me and it made me really happy!(Thank you to those people!)
But since I originally worked till 9:30, I worked till around 10:45 or so since it was a hard time to get off my shift. But overall, it was still fun.
FRIDAY June 6, 2014:
So I get back to Dallas for the official Day 1 of A-Kon 25 cosplaying as Jean Kirschtein and for my first stop before I get to my shift, I went to reserve my room at the Hilton Garden Inn. But had to make a wait since the room wasn't available till 2:30 or 3:00. Plus my shift was from noon till 6:00, so me and my friend dropped off our stuff there at the hotel for a while and decided to explore the convention(well for me, I worked for the majority. XD) and even MORE people came up and told me hey, hi, what's up, etc. XD afterward, I went straight on to the Attack on Titan photoshoot. Luckily, the photoshoot was just the beginning when I arrived. When they called up for all Jean's and all Marco's, I went up. When I went up, I hear alot of people cheer and say hi, hey, etc. and I laughed a bit. XD The photoshoot was fun, and can't wait for another one at another con. So afterward, I went on to the Hilton Garden Inn and reserve my room at the Garden Inn. But, the spots we're filled and me and my friends(total of 7 of us, including me) moved to the Doubletree by the Hilton which is near the Anatole. So I didn't bother doing anything for the rest of the day so I just relaxed in the room.
SATURDAY June 7, 2014:
Saturday morning, and it was my most busiest day of A-Kon yet. I was off from work for the rest of the con so I was able to "go on adventures" with my friends. For the morning and majority of the day, I cosplayed as Alucard. Me, my friend
and our friend Jude cosplayed at the Alucard trio! We decided to derp around and troll some places. We trolled crunchyroll, the LittleKuriboh booth in the artist alley and all around the majority of the con by doing the can-can. XD We eventually run into an Integra cosplayer and a Pip cosplayer too. For about an hour or so, I went to the YGO! Photoshoot as Ryou Bakura, and being with my Marik's and other friends there was worth it too! Afterward, I went to cosplay as the manga ver. Death the Kid to host the Soul Eater photoshoot. But when I got to the meetup place, no one was there. But I was told by a Maka that the photoshoot did happen, but only lasted for about 15 or so minutes. So I was disappointed, and I went to the TFS panel where I met up with my friend
and did more crazy shenanigans. I wanted to change into Lelouch/Zero(/One) since the Soul Eater shoot was a win/loss situation, but never got to. Eventually, I went back to my room and watched anime on Toonami and just relaxed for the night.
SUNDAY June 8, 2014:
So it was the final day of A-Kon 25, and I wanted it to be a great one. I planned to cosplay as Lelouch/Zero(/One) for the morning part, but instead I went as Trainer Red for the ENITRE day on Sunday. It was pretty fun, and worth it. Being able to film a few things and take pics here and there, but everyone was leaving and my friend and I went to Denny's before leaving. Where we saw a few more of my friends there too. Afterward, my friend and I went straight onto the Anatole to get our stuff and left. Leaving an awesome convention for it's 25th Anniversary. When I got back home, I had con-depression, which lasted quite long but eventually lasted.
So overall, A-Kon was a great experience to me and being there since A-Kon 18/2007 was totally worth my life. Being able to be with people I can relate to and share my experience with others is totally fun. Can't wait for A-Kon 26 next year! Next stop for my con trip is Screw Attack Gaming Con next month, where I'll be premiering a cosplay over there that I was originally gonna show at A-Kon but never finished. Those going, you'll see what it is eventally.
I'm only going on Saturday only so keep an eye out for me!
See you guys next time!
