My most awkward moment was probably when I was going through this mini Free Hugs line on the second floor and the last guy in the line (who had a wicked black and red trench coat) hugged me and said: "I love you."
And I can't remember whether I said: "Okay." or "Yay."

xD

It was more funny than awkward, though. And I was sad that I didn't take his picture to keep the memory. xP

Something tells me I created at least 1 akward moment. I was a failed L sucessor and I went around groveling and apologising to all the L's I saw because I failed. Some of them looked at me like "wth?" so, sorry if I confused anyone. Oh, but thanks to the L that played along and gave me a hug.

I fell down in the stairs in a pair of my friends gothic lolita boots, which I've never tried to wear before.

I fell down hard.

Some guy was behind me and was like 'what the hell is wrong with this girl?'.

He didn't even try to help me up when I fell either. Just stared at me and turned away.

BOUNDARIES DARNIT

Postby Vespalady » Wed Nov 04, 2009 10:43 pm

I was cosplaying Shuichi Shindou (Shindou Shuichi for you sticklers) and sitting down. Just taking a break and minding my own business...when a girl dressed as L (I think?) came up to me and asked "hey shuichi can I stroke you?"

NO! NO, you can't stroke me! And then she proceeded to "just hug" but really stroke my face all creepy-like. (It would have been more appropriate—possible more creepy—if she were dressed like orochimaru...)


I don't know about everyone at Youmacon, but I have boundaries. You can glomp me, but please dear **** no pedo-like stroking.....

Some con-etiquette guys, hugs are usually okay but when people tell you to back off just listen.

Ah. Here's an awkward moment for you, and maybe I'm just not as social as I thought. As I was waiting in line for some random autograph session [Travis perhaps?] I hear from the left as if from no where, "hehehe.. I can see up your skirt."

Now mind you, i'm not -that- scantily clad. I swear! I mean, so the skirt was a little short, but not enough that if I sat down or walked about it was that easy to peer under. So quickly I jump to my senses and eye to the direction the voice came from.

I don't know who he/she was cosplaying. All I know was said person was sitting down with a grin that could make the grinch jealous. It was thanks to that from then on if i wore said outfit again; i put on shorts underneath.

Oh and here's more awkward. People who would get mere INCHES from my face just to shove "The game" into it.

People it began on the internet for a reason, lets keep it there.

The free hugs were also awkward to me.

What with everyone in a whole [i'd assume] slowly but surely getting over the H1N1 epidemic...

Why would I want to willingly increase my chances for what's left of the bug?

Just sayin'.

Gosh, way to ruin my day. =P


Funny thing, i was the 101th person in line for sunday's autograph session. So they made me put on a 'End of the Line' Sign to warn people that they might not get their autographs. And every 5 minutes the staff person would go "Lego Man!" and i would have to stand up nice and high, while they explain to everyone that anyone behind me might not get their signatures.

Not complaining though. i loved seeing people's happy faces from their nostalgia of playing with legos :D

My only semi-awkward moment was on Saturday night. There was this blue oni sitting down in the 2nd floor elevator lobby telling a never ending story, so i stopped by to listen for a bit. I was standing by the up/down button column. I turned around to look at a where a strange noise behind me was coming from, when I got poked in the butt. I turned back around and there was this guy sitting there looking up at me (note, I'm a guy), and he shook his head frantically and pointed at the girl next to him. She looked up and smiled. I said "Thanks," in an awkward, funny sort of way. Here's a picture of her:

Beware, she'll poke your butt. The whole thing was more funny than awkward, but I figured I'd post it here, haha.

I was walking up the stairs to get to the 2nd floor and I was keep on triping on my tunic and this guy just picked me up and help me in his shoulders and carried me to the 2nd floor and when he put me down he looked down at me (because I was kneeling on the ground) and said " I'll take care of you buddy "

Oooh so this was my first con and I had heard rumors about cons, being that many people were touchy feely. I didn't know if that was true, but upon going in, I found that indeed, many people liked to hug. It was a little strange to me at first, because I'm thinking, "WHOA. This guy just asked me for a hug! I don't know him. What do I do?" But then I didn't wanna be rude or mean by dismissing it, so I figured, "Hm. Mario as a person might hug people. Maybe it's ok if I hug them as the character and not as myself." And with that thinking in mind it got me through hugging. It's really not so awkward after a while. People are nice, and just friendly, sometimes too friendly, but overall I had a good experience.

As for the H1N1 virus....I took much care in wearing my gloves and not touching my face, and wiping my hands with antibacterial wipes on occassion. And I usually get sick very easily. My immune system is God-awful. But luckily with these tactics I managed to stay well for this season. HOO RAH!

Did anybody else just hear that? I think it was the squees (**** help me, I promised myself I'd never use that word) of a thousand yaoi fangirls.

I was with a couple of friends of mine and I was in my Hooker! Blair and they were talking to a friend of mine to make sure to keep me safe because I was in a cosplay that required very little clothes and this drunk guy came up to me and asked for a hug. Of course I said no. >>
