I regret:

-Not getting Caitlin Glass to sign something when I almost tripped over her (long story).
-Not being able to be there more than just Saturday.
-That I missed the first few minutes of the Death Note panel because of the stupid construction on 94.
-That I didn't have a group to go with. Flying solo is lonely. And group cosplays are awesome. :)

As this was the first con I cosplayed for:

-Not making friends (sans the one who've since added me on FB)
-Not being as open as I rightfully should have.
-Not bombing enough pics! Being Deadpool, I should have bombed soooo many more.
-Not being completely ridiculous. Again, as Deadpool.. It should come naturally.
-Not buying a badge (I had other things to do during the weekend : /) or going to the raves.

Next year is gonna be so much better for me, I believe :D

I regret not saying hi to as many people as I should have. And I regret not talking more to a cutie Thor I met on Saturday. I also regret not staying longer on Saturday but I think my feet might have just fallen off by then. Better luck next Youmacon.
"So...when do we start?"

Rest of 2015 line up
Windsor Comicon - Link from Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Grand Rapids Comic Con - Abraham Van Brunt
Youmacon - Princess Captain America and the Great Fairy-Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask

P.S. I feel for you people who fell victim to the Pre-Reg blunder... Hopefully there is something different they can do next year... (Mail out the badges maybe? Pay to mail? Organization? We will see next year! ;] )

I regret not bringing more freinds and not asking for my maid from the cafe for her number. She was the cutest thing. I did ask for a picture though.
a freind believes the smile on your face. a true freind sees the hurt in your eyes.

-Not having a camera ( Due to lack of knowing where it was before leaving for con, Found it once got back ;-; ).
-Not getting to compliment half a dozen cosplayers on there great cosplays.
-Not buying anything really amazing from the dealers room/artist alley.
-Not having the cosplay i wore finished the way i would have liked ( missing bone pattern on back, wiring to keep things held up so i did not have to hold them, etc ).
-Not getting contact info from several people i met.

Last is not as much of a regret as much as a wish...
-Wish there would have been other ghost type pokemon cosplayers at the convention.
-Youmacon 2015-

--Going to the Anime Convention Reviews meet-up

-Not making my cosplay look better than it was and doing a better job on it (hopefully next year itll look better)
-Not having a mic so I could talk to people more easily (I apollogize for those who spoke with me and had a difficult time hearing me its rather difficult to speak in that helmet and having as quiet of a voice as mine)
-Not making more friends and getting contact info with everyone I met
-Not getting to the halo photoshoot in time
-Not wearing my full cosplay all that often (I had alot of problems with it and I couldnt really sit at all in it)
-Not hanging around the other spartans as much and getting their info
-Not playing rockband
-Not getting a schedual (they never gave me one so I didnt know when guests where doing signings and events i wanted to go to were going on)
-Not going to the maid cafe
-Taking off my helmet (my ex ran into me and came and spoke with me for a bit when I want to avoid her after what shes done and said. This is the 2nd year in a row this has happened)
-Not getting more pics (my phone dislikes when I have gloves on it seems and was in a place that made it difficult to get to most of the time)
