Sakura Con Recap and Banzai Con Plans

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 10, 2012, 11:29 PM

Sakura Con Recap

So twinfools 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 and caineyamiyasha, 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.

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 :)

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.

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, TerrorSprinkles, caineyamiyasha 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 ^^;

Oh my god I didn't realize it until like five hours later.
But I talked to you while you were in you Sakura cosplay.
You were just sitting there by yourself outside the cafe thingy and I was like "Your cosplay is amazing! c:"
And now I feel stupid for not realizing it was you sooner.

Card Captor Sakura and First Strike Yuri? Why am I not in Norway?

I hope you feel better for Banzai con!

): I'm sad I didn't get to go to SakuraCon this year... I really wanted to see you guys, but I didn't have transportation. It sucks you got sick, it happens to me almost everytime I go to a con. I always get swollen tonsils and/or lose my voice if I'm not careful.
Make sure you double check your luggage, you don't want to forget anything important, like pieces to your cosplays or something! (: I hope you have lots of fun at Banzai.

I saw you guys in the hotel and felt bad that it took so long!
Then I saw your CCS cosplays and couldn't help but squeal. They were amazing looking! My friends and I were inside and I happened to look out and see it. But I got a better look when we went outside so Fang could smoke ^_^;; I felt awkward trying not to stare at them, but I thought your CCS were amazing. I absolutely loved them!
VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
OMG! Were you the FFXIII cosplayers? You all looked fantastic!
And thank you so much!
Kuroudo1723 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

It was great to see you and Twin again, as always.
Sorry you got sick though D:
Corodo Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
I'm curious: with all the conventions you and Twin go to, how do you two manage to request time off from work? Even if you made the request in advance, has it ever been a problem to work out with your bosses?
IggysLittlePyro Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

I told you this on your Apple Jack picture, too, but I saw you at Sakura con after the Final Fantasy fight tournament. I was so scared to come up0 to you, but my friend (who was dressed as Luxray) asked for your picture and I was dressed as Sasuke, and I took it. There was so much I wanna say to you, but it just wouldn't come out and now I regret it D: I hope I see you at Aki con, atleast.

Sadly my freind tiffani wasnt able to say hi to you for me, there was an avalanche on the pass so she couldnt go :(

Sasunarukitsune Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
I thought you will make Rukia again , and finally not XD which version ?
VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
I'm going to be wearing her school uniform. Twin really wanted to do Ichigo, but I didn't have my Rukia anymore so I only had a day to make an outfit. The school uniform was pretty much the only one I could get together in time. I will do Rukia again, but I need to get a new wig for her.

I didnt know you weren't feeling well until i got back to my room and looked at twitter after seeing you and Twin in the Elevator, If i had known I would have asked how you were feeling but that is neither here nor there. I hope you feel better and enjoy Norway :) have fun
VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Aw, thanks. It's okay. I have having a hard time focusing on not throwing up so I probably wouldn't have been able to talk anyways ^^;
I'm feeling better now, though!
Thorn104 Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

DenRoMerica Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
I hope you feel better :iconhugplz: Can't wait to see some more cosplay photos :iconlenxdplz:
SheerBliss Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
So did you finish sewing once I'd left? Or does that fall under "packing" still?

Have a fun time.
The cats and I will paint you pictures upon your return.
VandorWolf Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Oh, yeah XD I finished. I just had to put on the sleeve and the zipper on the front.
SheerBliss Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
Yay! Well I'm glad you finished.

Don't forget anything and have an excellent flight!
