Meeting new people and hanging out with old. I go to cons mostly cause the people are so great and this con was no exception. Plus because I was stuck working gaming almost the entire time, I wasn't able to see nearly as much of the con as I wanted to. There were definitely some events I missed that I wanted to go to.

Still we got to rock out "Hit in America" in the karaoke room.

- Playing with Eyeshine
-Spoony bards playing the star wars theme while walking behind a person cosplaying a Star Wars character, as they walked RIGHT INTO the grand ballroom where the whole of the convention was sitting!
-Ending up playing on stage in the ballroom while the con got stuff together. I just HAPPENED to have my dulcimer over in that general area for another reason.
-meeting the two artists in artist alley who didn't have a room, so we ended up sharing with them since we didn't have enough people in our room (we would have had to pay $200 between 2 people, then they joined us and it made it $50. What a financial load off my mind!)
-Getting free food and drinks from random places (totally not asked for, just offered) and free pocky!
-Ending up making friends with most of the artists.
-Seeing that prayer circle with Vic. That was powerful to walk by. (and I'm not even christian, but I can 'sense' the power built into that circle.)
-Having people ask for my signiture. Wow.

You guys have no idea how many small miracles happened to me this weekend. Youmacon was definitely a place that some Higher Power decided to smile on.

~ Masqurade, most definitely. Snake+Irvine+Rikku=win.

~ listening to the Spoony Bards and then getting their autographs. Then discussing the 'community' with them. Then getting owned in Soul Calibur by them. Then.. listening to them some more. This was probably my absolute favorite thing at the con, beats it all out by a longshot - You guys rule and i hope to see you more.

~ The Blanket Fort. I can't possibly comprehend why.. how.. or.. what.. but.. yes.

~ Seeing how friendly everyone was. this was my first con experience and it was a fairly pleasent one, out of the 50-100+ complete strangers i talked at, only 1 was rude. Nice.

~ The Drive there and the Drive home. Yes.

~ The Rave Dance Saturday night.

~ Playing in the Super Smash Bro's Melee Tournament and getting my butt handed to me by a solid Metroid Player.. I self-killed myself atleast once but the battle was epic none-the-less, Congrats to the winner and runner-up, you guys know how to play jiggly+Peach Very well.

~ Playing Super Punchout all the way through on the Emulator you guys had going Friday Night.

~ Waiting in line for the masqurade and hearing people shout out favorite anime/anime characters. Whoever the 'line lady' was that coordinated that - kudo's

~ Being able to share my own remixed music with other people on-site :) Thank you laptops!

~ Playing Hugo (Street Fighter) on a game i've never played before and abusing his circle+punch attack that throws the enemy and takes quarter health to frustrate people.

aahhh the Yaoi room!! ^_^ If your friend said he was scared away because a couple women screamed Yaoi it was my friends and I :lol:


~*~ Sitting in the yaoi room watching the movies was great, it was just my two female friends, myself, and a male friend. We had the room to ourselves and about 20 different men popped in and screamed "18 AND UP ROOM!! YES!!" We were all laying down across multiple chairs in the front row (except our male, he was laying on the floor) and we would pop up and they'd see us and go "WOMEN!!! DEAR **** YES ITS HEAVEN!!" We'd scream "Yaoi" they'd take one look at the screen and ran away very fast XD All except Sesshomaru. WE LOVE YOU SESSHY!!!

~*~ People actually knowing who I was cosplaying as on Saturday. Note to self: Remeber refernence material next time.

~*~ "Will Read Tarot Cards for Pocky!" One person actually took me up on that offer ^_^

~*~ Meeting Johnny Bosch as he was randomly wandering around the lobby at about 2 am or so.

~*~ Meeting up with people that I had met at other cons, and then just meeting new people in general ^_^

~*~ The vendor who kept hitting on me and offering me 5 or 10 off EVERYTHING on his table I touched.... just because I was in a Kimono.

~*~ Even though I didn't win in the Hall Cosplay ( :cry: ) I think it went over very well, and I'm happy with the results, and the masquerde was very good too

Hey, all! 'Tis I, that infamous bloody Duo cosplayer. :lol: Thought I'd drop by and say hi, since I was in the neighborhood. I had an AWESOME time hanging out with all of you, especially my friendly stalkers and OZ contingent!

Things I'll agree with that rocked-

_ Recreating a famous Veitnam war photo with Duo.

_ Tomoyo finally having her hands on a camcorder.

_ Um... getting pWned when I fell asleep.

_ Eyeshine telling me about getting pWned.

_ Yuri Lowenthal "Bad thing is, now I want one of each badge!"

_ Autograph. "You have the Badge Jutsu!"

_ Well attended ANime Anatomy & Beyond Pinups panels (I just hope I was useful)

_ TECHNO ELEVATOR!

_ Um.. Techno Elevator was actually more fun than the dance itself... the music was teh suxxor, and they didn't play the Time Warp at midnight!
