Yay, I actually have something interesting to talk about!
And it's time for 'Vegerot's Journaly Rant on the Weather'!
It's been. Way. Too. HOT.
Like, seriously, we get the damn swamp cooler up and running only for it to barely help at all. What the fuck is this shit? ><
It was even worse over the weekend (I only talk about the recent weather because I forgot what the weather was like since I last made a journal
) because I was cosplaying for my first time ever and it was so damned hot that staying outside for less than five minutes had me sweating! DX
Yesterday and today was the only break in that pattern because of nearby rain storms. Today is especially nice and I hopefully won't have to struggle to sleep tonight like before trying not to die of heat stroke. Hopefully this keeps up cuz the heat is no. Fuck you, summer. t-_-t
And that ends this 'Vegerot's Journaly Rant on the Weather'!
Now onto more exciting news~ Went to ACE (local comicon) with a friend and it was especially exciting because not only were we meeting Richard Horvitz (Zim) and Rikki Simons (GIR), we were also cosplaying for the first time ever.
Got to see TONS of awesome cosplays and speak with fellow nerds and it was... just so beautiful. :') Plus, seeing tons of amazing merchandise was a bonus. Totally broke me by the end of the weekend. xD It was worth it though. c:
Lemme tell ya, when you go to a con as a normal person and walk around taking pictures of cosplayers, it's a pretty average experience, right? It's completely
different when YOU cosplay and are noticed for it. I went as Ymir from Attack on Titan and got asked to take photos - a lot. Made me so happy even tho only two people verbally acknowledged me as Ymir. Some people thought I was Sasha. :I
I only cosplayed Saturday and Sunday tho which worked as more people were around then. Totally worth the pain in my legs after all was said and done. :'D Would totally do it again should the opportunity arise.
I didn't buy a whole lot from the con but what I walked away with was awesome. Found a Figurarts Super Saiyan Vegeta figure for a fairly decent price (and he was begging me to buy him cuz ever since I first saw him at a comic shop earlier in the day, it was at like 4 booths at the con), two cute AoT keychains of Armin and Sasha plus some neat AoT military branch badges. C:
Major highlight of the weekend was Richard hearing my name and proceeding to sing a whole song about it. xD He even got other con goers to help him finish it.
I find it even funnier that he and Rikki proceeded to sing it at one of their panels the following day and even presented the whole song to me on the last day when my friend went to get an autograph for his sister. I felt all special and shit.
Also, the title of this journal was a skit Rikki and Richard did that was fucking hysterical that my friend managed to get some audio of. xD Their next panel was 'Story Time with Zim' that we both got video of. (:
When not at the con, we just bummed around at the mall, bookstore and some restaurants. Even went bowling and played some mini golf - it had giraffes okay?
I now own the first 13 eps of AoT on DVD/Bluray tho so I can be happy for that too. c: Planning on watching it at my mom's house when I housesit this weekend (or from Friday onwards) because she has a HUGE HD flat screen.
'Twas a good, fulfilling weekend. c:
And now I leave whoever reads this to envy me because I've gotten that a lot recently. xD
