Otakon was a blast, I think.
I didn't get to go to Otakon on Friday -- Lauren and I both had work. She came by in the evening and after some awesome talking, we started pursuing the events at Otakon and making a plan of attack. We maybe did... half of it?
I tried to translate her Sailor Saturn doujin, but my net was iffy so trying to find my kanji was just not happening @3@
I got up really early... Cosplayed Aya. Got there around 9:15-ish, grabbed our badges (mine's the TIGER & BUNNY one!). Lauren went to... a panel about fanfiction, I think, and I went in line to go and get Ozaki to sign my badge and Death Note. It was awesome, by the way. The Dealer's Room was closed for some reason (really long line >3>), so I couldn't try and get the Madoka posters or CHEMISTRY's album. Met up with Lauren again for a bit, talked to someone else throughout the panel, and then went to line up for CHEMISTRY. Got them to also sign my Death Note, then dashed to Iwakami's and talked to pretty awesome people hahaha.
Um.... What did I do next? I think I hitched to the Dealer's Hall, which had reopened by then, and got the Madoka posters. And nothing else until I met up with Lauren for lunch. Then suddenly, I'm looking through things and finding so much awesomeness. I found Assasin and White Shaman!!!! BOTH VOLUMES!!!! I had to buy it no matter the price. Also bought one YohKen doujin, and a doujin grab bag. It came with a FMA RoyEd and one from Soul Eater. That one ended up going to Lauren's artist friend... I feel like I should have made her pay for it, but meh.
Oh, also saw Larissa briefly :3
And I missed the TOUHOU cosplay shoot hahaha.
When we got back to my place, we had dinner, then watched Madoka until like 2am. The first three eps :3
Got up late (whoops!) and by the time we got to the convention, we had a few minutes to get to our respective panels. Lauren headed to the Producers and Directors panel (which turned more into the Directors' panel hahahah) and I headed to the Tiger & Bunny one. I didn't know that this was the first EVER Taibuni panel. Blew my mind. I had a blast and tried to record it all (it's crappy but still informative). Then back to the Dealer's Hall, where I proceeded to get a copy of FLOW, CHEMISTRY, and a Miku CD. Pursued doujin (no more Weiss Kreuz, and obviously no Taibuni ;3;). I saw Mitch and Matt today! That was such a surprise, but man, was it fun talking to them again. And Matt didn't try to pick me up, which is a bonus.
Met up with Lauren again, she ended up getting a pretty cell and pencil board. I bought two grab bags - one for me and one for her, and I got awesome stuff out of it. Then I looked for doujin again, met up with Lauren and her artist friend Jate in the Alley (which was closing even earlier than the dealers hall, which is stupid), and then we went back to the Hall and she bought me a manga and book in exchange for the bag.
After we finished, we met up with the 'rents and ate at PF Changs which was.... not as good as I thought it would be "/
That's my weekend. Might try to put together my model tonight... Maybe not though.
