I have learned three things at this convention.

1.) I start acting like everyone's mother when the con comes around. More on that in recap.

2.) I really want to start taking more/better pictures at cons. Cosplayers, groups, people, everything. Like I see cosplayers and groups of cosplayers and I look at photos people have taken after the con and I just have all these ideas for pictures I could take in my head. This really happened during the 999 shoot and when I saw the Disney costumers (Peter Pan group, Aristocats, Flynn and Rapunzel -- SO MANY IDEAS OH MY GOODNESS D:)

3.) I CANNOT POSE TO SAVE MY LIFE. XD

Besides those three things I've noticed, there's another note I have to make upfront here. I'm horrible at meeting new people. Even if I've talked to them on the internet beforehand. I'm awkward and doofy and mumble and say stupid things - that's just the way I am and I always have been. I mean, the first time I met Nate it was a whole lot of "merrr herp derp i'm heather duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh." And then I stared at the wall behind his head.

But the people I met for the first time this weekend though (looking directly at Katsuya Weller and the magical gang of [livejournal.com profile] leesers/[livejournal.com profile] nekogonya/Mike/Kevin/Tom) were some of the absolute sweetest people I've ever met (not to mention hilarious) and for once I kind of felt like I wasn't out of place/doing something stupid/total social ineptitude ahoy! - so thank you guys. <333


DANCING GIRS!



I... I love these two with all my heart. How do you make Jacen Caedus and Jaina ghetto? LIKE SO. KANYE SHRUG GURL~


MORE UNDER THE CUT!

you were doing ducky lips before all those mybook facespace slags! )

We were discussing another con the other day. Tekkoshocon. It's in Pittsburgh meaning it's right near Valerie and Brian (and they are awesome and already said we could crash there). We would probably go up Thursday night and hit up the con on Friday and then part of Saturday - then we would harass Valerie & Brian the rest of the time. XD

Question is WHO IS GOING TO TEKKOSHOCON? XD (Besides [livejournal.com profile] leesers, since she already said so on FB~ XD)

And if yes, ARE YOU DOING ANY MAGICAL COSTUMES? (I told you magical was the word of the day -- along with darling~)

I'm gonna bring my magical camera and take magical pictures since I didn't take many at Katsu thanks to my missing internal battery. D:

We were discussing bringing along Professor Layton & Luke Triton... or maybe Silent Hill costumes... but we don't know yet. INPUTS? <33333

(The only thing that sucks about con is leaving con and leaving all the fun people until next con. ;____; NOOOO, CON FUUUNNNKKKKK!)

Again, just like last year, here is the big wrap-up post which makes it's easier for me to get to all the others, lol. ;D

-- Wednesday & Thursday (driving, arriving and Death Troopers!)
-- Friday (Jedi Strike Team & Drowning Doom Ophelia!)
-- Saturday (Arrested Development & Monkey Island!)
-- Sunday (Expanded Universe crack!)
-- Monday & Tuesday (More Expanded Universe crack and lots o' shenanigans!)

I need to make a D*C 2011 costume post, but I need to actually figure out what I'm doing first, hahah~ XD

MONDAY & TUESDAY - BRET WAS HERE. )

Of course, my mind has instantly gone to D*C 2011. And also figuring out costumes for it. I'm sure there will be a Star Wars one or two. Then there's the group costume I'll probably be posting about here soon, which [livejournal.com profile] omicron1337 and I have already been discussing (XD) and I know there's a bunch of others I can't remember. WHAT WAS I DOING AGAIN? D:

Pictures and con report of doooooooom! Like Katsucon, there isn't much actual reporting to do since we all mainly just goofed off and talked and hung out and stuff, BUT THERE ARE PICTURES AND CRACK and a little bit of reporting. I WILL TRY MY BEST.

WARNING: IMAGE HEAVY AND SOME CURSING OR SOMETHING? HUR HUR~ also, crack. there's that too, but that's pretty much a given here. D:

I have never had this much yellow on me before. I have to squint when I look in the mirror. )

In closing, this con has made me absolutely crazy for Star Wars: EU pictures and I will harass every one of you with an EU costume at Dragon*Con this year for a billion pictures. SO MANY IDEAS FOR STRIKE TEAM PICTURESSSSSSS TOOOOOOO. D:
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - hunter ])

So I'm ready for next year. LET'S DO IT.
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - mcvries ])


D*C '09 - SUNDAY! - To make a long story short-- (TOO LATE)! Shaun of the Dead knows Ray Garraty! DID SHE POKE YOUR EAR OUT? )

I love The Long Walk and Clue costumes so much. <3
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - tk ])
SO HERE IS THE BEGINNING OF MY RECAP!!11 First, before I get into anything I just want to do a little bit of <3.

IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU THUGS: You know who you are. Roomies, YJK/Sith peeps, LJ peeps, JUST ALL OF YOU. If I came in contact with you this weekend, trust me, I was really happy to see you. <3333

And a huge thank you to: Nate, Ashley, Sara and Emily -- who were all awesome photographers when I was unable to take pictures of myself cause then they would be myspace pictures. And for being roomies of yay too, of course. XD


D*C '09 - WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY! - Your cast! Moe's! Young Jedi Knights! TOO SOON? )
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - rb ])
KATSUCON! THEY PLAYED "JIZZ IN MY PANTS AT THE DANCE"~ HERE YOU GO.

Report! Pictures! Persona! Zombies! BFing! Ninja power! )

So besides Sunday it was an awesome con. I just need to start chugging orange juice all day the whole week before cons from now on. Also, use Purell like a bitch during cons.
tenel_ka: ([ cosplay - rb ])
FINALLY, MY ANIME USA CON REPORT. A MONTH LATE. But whatever, it's done! And it will help me get a small con fix. I NEEDS IT. Pictures under the cut (Poison Ivy & Harley, Beth's amazing Ashura outfit, all of us being tools, etc.)

CREEPY PEOPLE WALKING INTO OUR ROOM! TROPHIES! FLOWERS! THE CRESCENDOLLS! FREEZEPOP! AND DO YOU SMELL THAT PEPPAH?! )

I LOVE ME SOME CONVENTIONS. XD
tenel_ka: ([ boys - jared ])
So here is the master D*C 2008 recap link and a possible list of costumes for next year, much like I did last year. XD

-- Thursday! (doughnuts! burning eyes!)
-- Friday! (bullet holes! doctors! swimsuits...?)
-- Saturday! (zombilicious! LEECHES! that other fandom!)
-- Parade! (lolol chips ahoy!)
-- Sunday! (ADAM AND EVE WUT? i'm sew happy!)

Dragon*Con 2009 costumes (definite and possible)!:
1.) Mrs. White (Clue: the Movie -- I LOVE that screencap~ XD)
2.) A Frog Brother (The Lost Boys)
3.) Tenel Ka (Young Jedi Knights -- already done)
4.) I kind of want to do a Carrie costume. :o You know, the whole nine yards with the bloody prom dress... that would be bloodier than all my costumes from this year combined! And would also require like a ten hour shower to get clean, SO I DON'T KNOW YET~ XD

I THOUGHT I HAD MORE IDEAS THAN THIS SO FAR...?

WOOOOOOOO D*C~
tenel_ka: ([ bioshock - try this! ])
SUNDAY (and a tiny smidge of Monday) - AUGUST 31st, 2008: [ costumes: Maid Marian (Robin Hood: Men in Tights), Little Sister (Bioshock -- + Splicer = LOVE!) ]

WE JUST GOT RICKROLLED TWICE! :D )

In the end, I have to thank everyone for making my sixth D*C one of the best and most classic D*Cs ever.

And I just have to give props to the Blood Drive at Dragon*Con. San Diego Comic Con produced about 856 units in their blood drive this past year. Dragon*Con, which has less members attending (about 30,000 attendees as opposed to SDCC's approximate 125,000), rounded out at about 1,182 units, so I hear. Everyone is drunk or hung over and is like, "YEAH LET'S GO GIVE SOME BLOOD, WOOO!" XDDDDD

I also have to say that I have never met an asshole at Dragon*Con -- everyone is jointly sweet and nerdy and geeky and proud of it. Sure, the convention is like the weird red-headed stepchild of the convention world, but that's why it's so damn incredible. Everyone should go at least once in their lifetimes.

September 4 - 7, 2009, bitches! BE THERE!


(LOL THIS PICTURE OF IRON MAN COOLING OFF = <33333~ I LOVE D*C. XD)
tenel_ka: ([ boys - thumb ])
I took a trillion shots of the parade on Saturday morning, but these are just a few of my favorites. XD

LOL SARA IS DANCING IN THE STREET~! )

The Sunday report will be up at some point tonight~ XD
