Wow I am so behind on LJ it's not even funny.

So I went to SakuraCon (anime con in Seattle) this weekend so I'm like 5 days behind on everything because of getting ready and just being there. I have to say, this was probably the best one I've been to yet. We were so busy too! We didn't get to attend any panels, but there weren't really any good panels this year, cept we should have gone to Zap Brannigan's panel XD

So Tabs, my friend Lara and I were a group who went around together this year. I was Roxy Lalonde from Homestuck day 0, then also until about 4pm on Friday, then I changed into my god tier Aradia costume, complete with wings. Lara was WV, and after 4, Tabs took my Roxy costume for the photoshoot. Saturday, we were an Assassin's Creed group: I was Altair, Tabs was Malik, and Lara was a Templar/Maria Thorpe. I had an apple of eden and omg it was the best cosplay prop ever. A bunch of people asked to take closeup shots of it, and also complimented us on the fabric choices for our cosplays (we made the whole things ourselves). Sunday Lara decided to go to easter brunch with her family (because they have lots of wine!) and I went to the con to dork around as Roxy, and Tabs was Shaun from AC2.

I think the reason we had so much fun was everyone was so chill and fun, and we met a group of AC2 multiplayer cosplayers that were just insanely awesome. We were walking in the exhibition hall Friday, and I pointed at a guy and said "Prowler!" and he was so excited that I recognized who he was cosplaying XD We bummed around with him a few times, then met the rest of the group the next day and went around with them and had drinks and such. They were all very cool and we're all thinking about doing a group cosplay for PAX or SakuraCon 2013.

I think my favorite cosplay was probably the simplest one. There were some gorgeous elaborate ones, but my favorite has to go to the blind girl who was cosplaying Terezi. She was utterly fabulous and was telling people how excited she was that there was a character she could cosplay that was just like her. It wasn't just that, she actually had a perfect damn outfit, hair, horns and prop of a scalemate with a noose. She was also eating chalk which made me die laughing. And she had the most amazing smile ever.

Okay going to end this wordy post with how glad I am we met some awesome people and had such a fun time. Tons of people took our pictures, but I have yet to find group shots of us as the AC trio :( Time to go digging for more today!

So last night was fun, and not so fun, all in one!

Heard that a coworker was super sick (we're calling her Patient Zero because she seems to have infected multiple people) and had a tickle in my throat, so before I went out in the morning, I made sure I had losenges just in case. They came in handy!

I ran around town picking up things here and there. Mostly small things to finish off some Homestuck cosplays I'm planning for Sakuracon. I finally found a decent tutorial for the troll God Tier wings so I got fabric for that, some fabric paint, and then a Roxy wig. After I got home I had summat to eat and then [livejournal.com profile] shinigamitabris and I left for the John Green signing event in Bothell.

The event was super fun! I knew as soon as I started sipping on my tea though, that I was getting sick. We had to wait outside in a line for about half an hour I think before they let us in. The event was about 1.5-2 hours, and then we had to wait for our group to be called for the signing. We were group M, so we had a while to wait. The event itself was great. I actually forgot I wasn't feeling the greatest since John and Hank were so fun and funny. I was worried tabs wouldn't like Hank's songs, but she really seemed to enjoy the whole thing :D I really liked John's speaking and the things he talked about too :)

After it ended, we waited. Thank god the place we were at had food vendors just waiting for the lines. I got some waffle fries, which were really tasty, but then my body was like U NOT FEELIN GOOD REMEMBER? and I realized I was getting worse and had to find a quiet place to call out from work. By the time they called M, I was just so tired. We got in line and when we got to the front, John was being goofy as always, and recognized someone from tumblr and said to Hank "it's so and so from the internet" and I love hearing that kind of thing XD When he took my books, I asked him to write that I was made of awesome, but I was clearly too quiet, because he answered as if I told him he was made of awesome, and said that I was too, which makes up for it XD Then I had Hank hanklerfish my copy of TFIOS and we headed home.

It's really a good thing I called out because I didn't wake up til like ...actually, the first time I remember a set time on the clock was 11. I think I woke up randomly at 8am too. I kind of drifted in and out of consciousness this afternoon til about 5 when I started feeling better. I actually just finished a huge bowl of soup, so I'm happy about that :D

I really want to play some Silent Hill, but I don't want really weird nyquil induced dreams tonight >__>;
