Seeing as I went last year I learned alot then. This year however I learned:

1. Shougi is insanly fun to be a part of even if I was a pawn.
2. Kyou Sohma is LOVED. (When I died during Shougi WOW did I have fangirls wanting me back. Let alone the random glomp attacks I got during the con.)
3. Matt Hill completly rocks.
4. I have a talent for collecting people.
5. I'm not the only one who can play in character very well.
6. That my Movie!Ed cosplay is "insanly cute"
7. That my Kyou Cosplay is "adorable"
(6 & 7 are quoting people who told me that)
8. I am uber excited for next year.
9. That I can expect to be glomped when I finish my Kougaiji cosplay. :D

1. Fangirls scream waaaaaaaaaay too loud for me.
2. I'm really quite frugal.
3. Voice actors are still amazingly nice.
4. I'm less of a pervert than everybody else is. :P
5. No matter how hard I try, I'm always going to be in the back of somebody's picture.
6. I'm one of the few fans of American voice actors such as George Lowe.
7. Half of the "stupid" Family Feud answers...were mine. (They made sense to me.)
8. AMV's never get old.
9. It doesn't take much too amuse or irritate me.

1. Do not start cosplaying with a character with a large prop...it gets annoying to move aroudn small areas
2. Kankuro is well know, but not well-liked and people will not ask for that many picturs
3. Peopel will glomp you regardless of who you cosplay
...I might add mroe later

1. Cosplaying Faust is a terrible idea. Sight is a good thing.
2. All Screaming Fangirls are sadomasochists. No exceptions.
3. Even when faced with people with similar interests, it's hard to be social
4. /b/tards are everywhere.
5. People cosplaying as Goku have a power level OVER 9000!!
6. Bulma is not a wealthy character from an Anime
7. There are not enough Guilty Gear Fans
8. Sleep is overrated.
5th place in the GGXX Slash Tournament!...out of eight people. >.>

Better than I expected, anyway.

1. I can drink two two shots of tequila, a long island iced tea, and a fuzzy navel all in one sitting while just snacking on pocky and STILL not get tipsy (I turned 21 on Saturday >D).
2. Battle Royale can be insanely funny when watched with complete strangers.
3. Everyone loves yaoi, at least a little, even the people who say they hate it.
4. There are way too many 8BT fans out there XD
5. The right 10 minute "costume" will STILL get you pictures
6. There aren't nearly enough Prince of Tennis fangirls/boys out there. (Speaking of: Ruito-girl, if you're reading this, I still rabu you like woah.)
7. Everyone is a dirty, dirty pervert.
8. Anime sucks, and that's why we love it. XD

1.) That I'm not as much as a fangirl as I thought I was. *shudder*
2.) That it's fun to be molested by fangirls.
3.) That when I ask for glomps, I didn't expect to be knocked to the ground thrice.
4.) That I'd rather see old con friends than meet new ones.
5.) Everyone loves hentai. Shut up. You do.
6.) Taboos are hawt.

1) I have Fan boys and girls... sadly more of the former than the latter.
2) ....I can fanboy out with the best of them....
3) Maybe... just maybe... I'm better at AMV editing than I thought.
4) I can sink to levels of depravity that most people can only dream about and shudder.
5) Bear may be able to make it to 10... but by ****... 26 sounds like a good number to me.
6) I can make even guests go fan boy for some of our pannels.
7) I'm a huge Tony Oliver fan... go figure....
8) I have NO self respect at cons.
9) I'll do anything and say anything to make people laugh
10) Me+free booze=BAAAAAD
11)did I mention I aparently have fanboys?

cause i had no intention of doing any of that... :lol: but do it again in a heartbeat? :wink: i think so!!!

next time, i am NOT leaving your side.

- Earning band-aids is not as hard as I thought it would be...and sometimes, you just may get lucky and end up holding entire neither regions for the sake of posing in character
- Love Hina is NOT that popular
- Keitaro is NOT a fangirl magnet
- Neither is HnJ Temari
- Even in the Midwest, HnJ isn't that huge.
- HnJ Temari is only recognizable when the fan is OPEN
- Not everyone is as pervy as me

As I lack sleep and a voice... (thank you Live Action Mario Party 18+) I can only fathom up one thing I learned...

Hangovers are so not a win. I drank only a bottle and a half of Smirnoff and felt like crap in the morning... ><

More to come later!!

1. There are more /b/tards than I ever thought I'd meet in public.
2. Raptor Jesus really is that cool.
3. The Akatsuki are very incapacitated (Tobi: one eyed tunnel vision, Deidara: one eye and one hand, Sasori: puppet body, Kisame: blue paint, Zetsu: oh ****... I think it's pretty obvious, Kakuzu: Hidan's head is heavier than you'd think.)
4. Ninja of the Night really is that funny.
5. Final Fantasy cosplayers are automatically considered more cool than anyone else. Which I think sucks.
6. Everyone is on bloody 4chan. (Which rocks my socks.)
7. There are some really funny things on the internet that I have not seen.
8. There is no love for Kabuto.
9. Posing like StripperVash is AWESOME.
10. Mysteriously Vanishing Star really does exist and Nikolai has the first season of it on his computer at home.

I learned that many, many, MANY people like Yaoi...more than I previously thought! XD I was surprised (and greatly amused at the Masquerade) to see so many Yaoi lovers at Youmacon.

I also learned that you can find A LOT of great artists and art prints at cons. I was really pleased with all the pieces of art I picked up. I hope to see more artists at next year's con!

I learned that photoshoots are a blast (even though I was a bit nervous)!!! I saw so many people dressed up as characters I love. I LOVED all the costumes!! :) To see all of the time and effort people put into their cosplays was incredible.

I can't wait for next year!
