and im sad because it's done ;=;. Gah! Thank you so much to everybody who came by and hung around, chatted, signed the duck-note (our yellow guest book with a duck drawn on it), and, of course, bought our crap! *HUGE HUG* ive gotta get around and visit everybody who put down their addies, possibly tamarrow!
Seriously though ;=;. I got to meet
, and i felt kinda stupid because at first i had no idea who i was talking to, and then i got to draw a commission for her, and in general it made me go squee. My sister
was a life-saver throughout the show, fielding prints and button-fetching while i worked on sketch commissions, she also did the colors on those. I probably would've died otherwise! And another huge shout-out has to go to my friend
, who sheltered us so we could get a little sleep without squishing my other friend and her friend's toes. I hear they rocked out with much sewing and stuff all saturday, and the place kinda looked like a sewing bomb had gone off and generally super-good times were had. Originally we were gonna stay in there, but i think this arrangement worked out better, so OMG thanks so much Lori, and meg ;=;!!
I met Lori last year at A-kon, when i was just kinda there and terrified with a couple of prints and some little pin people i cut out. She's who I go to whenever I need advice for conventions since she does this craziness for a living, and she's an awesome friend who sports a mustache very well. (don't be alarmed, its kinda inside joke-ish, but you probably saw it if you hung around at all). GO AND GIVE HER LOVES. Without her help, my L costume would've been way more convincing without make-up on saturday.
So we did get some sleep and ate a lot better than usual.
actually made us some freaking korean bbq, which was basically like.. the most amazing delicious foodmeats ever. I couldn't eat it right away so it was just sort of sitting there inside it's little paper plate cocoon, going "heeeey i taste really goooooood..". meanwhile i'm going AUUUGH I WANNA EAT IT..
At some point that same day, my sister brought me a lollipop for my cosplay. But it had a bug in it. And it tasted like those shavings you put in the bottom of hampster cages. Also like meat.
We fielded the table the entire con, but I also got to meet up with my friends
, and a whole lot of other people that my brain is just too broke to spit out right now. Basically after it was all said and done, we went back up to the hotel for a few hours of really bizzarre storytelling and laughter, and then disembarked on a long journey home. Along the way there were pancakes. We popped in at a little rest-stop just before we hit lafayette and found this awesome robot-animals thing that told us about bayou heritage and whatnot. part of the show was like this stage.. and you walk up to it and the little racoon and the huge freaking turtle invite you to come in in really friendly voices. So you go into this auditorium thing, it's not very big, and there's a tv screen where the tour video would play. Above the screen is another animatronic, a pelican or a crane i think, and it talks too. then it says something about a two hour video and SIMULTANEOUSLY THE DOORS CLOSE AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT AAAAUUGHHH..
we had an adventure! and now we're home. again, thanks so much everybody. hope to see you next year!
