Sakura Con RecapThursday
and I arrived in Seattle in the afternoon and went to the hotel to check-in. We had one heck of a time, but once everything was sorted out, we dropped off our bags and went to pick up our good friends, TerrorSprinkles
, from the train station. With all four of us finally there, we got ready for the convention.
Twin and I wore Peeta and Katniss (movie arena versions) and trolled around in those for awhile. We met up with :devGeeky-Spirit: and got some night shots in our Hunger Games cosplays.
After that, we went for a swim in the very crowded pool and called it a night.Friday
This was the FightingDreamersPro
group cosplay and this year we did X-Men. I've been wanting to cosplay Phoenix for a very long time so I was very happy to finally get the chance to do it. It was so much fun cosplaying with the rest of FDP again. It sucks that we are so busy and don't get to see each other as often as we used to.
After nachos, I changed into Magnet Luka with TerrorSprinkles
as my Magnet Miku. It was interesting being Luka this time around, but I had tons of fun. I definitely want to do more Luka and Vocaloid in general Saturday
The morning started out great. Twin and I were dressed in CardCaptor Sakura. This cosplay meant a lot to both twin and I. Li has been a dream cosplay for twin for a long time and CCS was what inspired one of novel series way back in 1999. Everything was going great until around 3 o'clock when we sat down for lunch. I started feeling really ill and had to go back to the hotel. After an hour of resting, I changed into Rainbow Dash to be in something a little more comfortable. I took it easy for the rest of the night and went to bed early. Sunday
The last day. I still felt sick, but changed into Applejack. Twin and I checked out and rushed over to the Fantasy Fight Tournament to help set up. The tournament was excellent this year. Lots of great contestants! After the FFT, twinfools
and I headed over to the Dealer's Room and got some last minute stuff. Then the four of us headed outside for the rest of the day.
Around 3, we got some lunch then headed to the station to catch our bus. We said our goodbyes and headed back home.
Overall, the convention was very good. It just sucked that I got sick
and I leave for Banzai Con in Norway tomorrow.
