i regret

-not pre registering (i didn't know it was gonna be that bad!)
-not taking more pictures (there was a lot of cool cosplays i saw and decided not to take their pictures at that moment, because I was positive I would see them again... I was wrong :( )
-not bringing my own food and a portable hotpot/grill (wouldn't have been hungry at 4am)
-not buying a lot of useless stuff in the dealers alley

You were honestly better off not pre-registering. My friends got in the registration line at the same time I got in the pre-registration line and they got their badge 10-15 minutes before me.

I wish I would've been slimmer... Even though I don't care what people think, I figured that's why only 2-3 people actually asked for my picture even though I had a full cosplay.
I wish I would've not waited to eat till midnight Friday night.
I wish I would've met the people I came up there to meet (besides the few celebs and people I did meet... Was supposed to meet more, but could never find them..)
I wish I would've waited longer for my friend to get Vic's autograph so I could've maybe jumped in real quick like.
I wish my legs didn't hurt like hell close to Saturday night, otherwise I would've been walking around more.
I wish I would've summoned my own personal elevator, complete with a disco.

I deeply regret not managing my time better and missing the photoshoots, especially the Valve one.
I regret not packing more efficiently. I was missing several things and could've avoided spending so much money on food and drinks.
I regret not using my Platinum badge to get into some events earlier.
I regret not taking the five minutes it would've taken to fix my camera before I left so I could've taken more than six pictures.
Lastly of course, I regret not getting more contact information from the awesome people I met.

If you pre-register and come on Thursday, it's hardly a wait at all. (Well, at least it wasn't at like 9:15; I got my badge within 3-5 minutes)

Aww. =[ Should've said "The one with the antenna!"

Also I think we hung out a little when the very small MGS unscheduled gathering happened?

- Not bringing rave-friendly attire to prevent me from dying of heatstroke/exhaustion/etc.
- Not talking to more people
- Not bringing some food/snacks of my own to eat in the wee dark hours of the morning when the food court was closed

I don't regret all the people I met because of my shoots
I don't regret drinking all that monster energy drinks just to stay alive
I don't regret bringing a college friend along.. it helped
I don't regret sleeping every night
I don't regret being a lot more prepared for photo shoots this time versus the last time I did it.
I don't regret being walking around in my impossible Gothic Lolita Hatsune Miku while taking photos
