Apparently I so got distracted with procrastination and helping plan Banzai! Pro's April Fool's joke, that I didn't realize I hadn't written a Con-Nichiwa report. XD Well, it happened a few weeks ago, but it's not too late to talk about it!
I only got to go on Saturday and it was probably my busiest convention yet, but I absolutely loved it! (I say that about every convention. XD) The main highlight was, of course, the Kuroshitsuji cafe. I was cast as the Undertaker, and so I got to entertain guests while being a total necrophiliac... it was amazing. XD It was really fun working with the rest of *BanzaiProductions
(of course... it always is) and other cosplayers which included ~electric-lady
, Lauren of !RemnantNinjas
(I had fun messing with her Ciel when she came
), Saiyuki from ~MadMikan
, and Tanner (whom I don't know if he has a DA account. XD; ). We had such a huge turnout. o_o All three sessions sold out and I heard that even more people were wanting to get tickets even after the fact. It was such a great cafe, and I loved interacting with everyone, both fellow cosplayers and guests!
Me and the rest of *BanzaiProductions
were pretty darn exhausted afterward, though. XD We actually didn't go to watch the masquerade. Well, for more than that reason... You see, at the Kuroshitsuji cafe character auction, I was bought by the voice actor W.T. Hatch (who was extremely generous to all his fans there, I might add), so I spent an hour following him around acting as Undertaker. This was during Todd Haberkorn's autograph session. If you recall, I had said that I really
wanted to meet him cosplaying as Allen Walker. Being the Undertaker and only going Saturday--that aspiration was a little impossible, so I at least wanted to meet him. By the time my hour was up, Todd Haberkorn's autograph session was over. But W.T. Hatch was incredibly gracious and offered to organize a separate time for me, ~ChEsHiRe-K
, and *ValdaValsha
to meet Todd Haberkorn... so the OTHER reason why we didn't go to the masquerade was because we were busy meeting with Todd Haberkorn!
It was hilarious, he opened his door and we were all like...
Let's just say the whole event was incredibly surreal.
Here's proof of our meeting! [link]
(By the way... the Ciel on the left was our adopted Ciel for the night, ~miracle-cliv
) BUT DUDE!!
After giving him a hug, as I left, I raised a fist into the air and recited triumphantly, "When we next meet, Todd Haberkorn, I will meet you as Allen Walker!".........No, it didn't go down exactly like that, but I did tell him that I was determined to meet him as Allen. XD
And then afterward, we had lots of giggle times in the parking lot with ~AmaraSama
. XD I can't remember everything that we talked about, but it was certainly cracktacularlicious. Why do weird things always happen in the parking lot?
I therefore came to the conclusion that the day was far too short.
Ciel Phantomhive (It's another costume... but I'm not going to say which one quite yet. :3 But it's been done a lot already, so hopefully I can live up to everyone. >>;;;; )
Green Link (yes, as in Zelda: Four Swords. XD)
Another seeeecret cosplay~! (I've been DREAMING to do this one~!
