Seriously? Seriously? Jesus, H. CHRIST. That was horrid.
So, Two years ago, I had the worse weekend of my life at a con. That was Ikkicon. Lot's of things happened, most of you remember, some of you don't but I'm not gonna get into it except say that they screwed me and my Former partner out of being a Guest, and then out of performing a well done skit and whatnot. It also lead to the biggest fight we've had, causing the first crack in our path to breakup.
Anyway. Last year, I didn't go because with the Chemo in my system, I knew it'd be pretty bad to try. So this year came up.I believe in Second chances. I do. So, when Shinka and some of my other friends mentioned it to me, I agreed to go. I got together two new Cosplays (With the Help Of Shinka. I really can't stop saying how much I love those guys.) I put together a Eridan Amphora cosplay and Then puit together a Jean-Claude Cosplay with my baby
as Anita Blake. All seemed good. I was excited for con, Then it happened.
Got the call from a friend three days before the con saying his Twilight Sparkle for the Ball dropped, so, I ended up having to put that together for him too, and participate in the ball. Not bad though.
So, We leave friday morning!~ After super stupid slight delays we drove and arrived. We all checked in, and I had to rush to PRactise for the Ball.
There, I was informed that Main Events. . .Was to be held. . .In a Tent. . .Tent. . .Teeeeeeent.
Okay. Well, no going back now. Twilight Sparkle wig didn't work out, soooooo, I ended up having to use my own hair which is dark with a Blonde streak in the bangs, So I figured I'd just put some pink in the bangs and work with it. Except, no where or one had pink spray. . .UGH. I got resourceful, and Used cream blush in Sweet Seduction pink to make the streak.
Thus began a long weekend of abuse put on my hair/Body.
Got to the ball. . .in a tent. . .And that's where it happened. They gave me my unicorn horn for Twilight, and tried to put it on my forehead with Spirit gum. It was not staying, and they kept joking about Glue and whatnot. That's when it happened. They Squirted more stuff on my forehead, and then came the burning. I realized it wasn't Spirit gum, but indeed. . .Super Glue.
. . .On my forehead. SUPERGLUE. AHHHH.
In the ball. People cared not about our skit. People booed me. People applauded when my list broke etc. Then, while I'm dancing, Someone hit the horn on my head. RIPPED the Super glued horn off my forehead. UGH. So much Screaming. So much Pain.
Moving on to Saturday.
Doing the halftime show. I created the most amazing show with So many Fandoms to salute the nerds. I'm telling you it was Beautiful. It had Black Butler, Naurato, Red vs Blue, Harry potter, and MORE! So, after Two people dropped out, I had to use the entire morning to write the Script, It was a morning filled with Laughter, tears, confusion, tears, anxiety, and friends coming to my rescue. We even pre-recorded it so that we could just do it and it would be perfection!~ Yeah. We thought.
Main events was in a Tent. And, now, we couldn't use the stage for cosplay. We had to use the floor in FRONT the stage. Basically, in a parking lot. Ugh.
Halftime time~ the Audio. . .is low? It played fine in our room. God knows, WHAT happened but the first Two rows were able to hear us. That's about it. (For what it's worth, the two rows mentioned that the halftime show was good. )
Anyway. Back to the room. More Angst.
Then, My babies
had their very first Panel!~ It was Fab, full of horror, and, well, horror. But they ran it well, and I was so proud of them.
Then, we changed into Homestuck, which took a while because of things, and the New Years countdown. But, we got into it, and it wasn't bad. Pretty fun. Although, late and no one really was around. So we ended up hitting the bed.
Sunday I was waiting for the usual Post Con Depression to set in, but it never really did. Just kind lingered under the surface. I think my body was just tired of the angst. Went hang out with Shinka at a Burrito place, and then Ice cream shop,which was pretty fun filled as well. then, HOME!~ Now, I'm here, Writing. And Trying not to throw the computer out the window thinking about the weekend.
Never got to Wear Jean-Claude with my babeh, Ash, but we agreed we'd do it another con, when there wasn't so much. . .BS going on.
All in all, Horrid con, GREAT company. Thanks guys. Love you all. <3
