On I think Saturday, a guy came up to me and asked to take pictures with me dressed as Haruhi Suzumiya. We took one normal one, and then one with me acting more like Haruhi, with him on the floor and me point like im ordering him around haha. Was fun and he seemed cool, so would be cool to talk to him~

to be honest i'd love to talk with everyone i met. I met too many cool people.

The girl I walked with from Cobo to the RenCen on Saturday that's allergic to chocolate. We had a nice chat along the way, it'd be nice to talk some more.

I would love to get a hold of Ben the guy dressed as the assassin from skyrim who gave me the contract to kill my boyfriend. I'd also love to get a hold of the girl with the awesome pentacle triple goddess tat with what looked like a puma above it. And to the awesome Cheza cosplayer my boyfriend said he saw I would really love to meet ya. Lastly to the girl we were in line with to get Hiei's autograph. And to the awesome discord I met at the mlp photoshoot, and the Arrietty if any of you are out there reading this please pm me or add me to fb.

On Saturday, a few friends and I were getting pictures done of our Uta no Prince-Sama cosplays and this adorable Mikuo Hatsune [male!Miku] started taking pictures with a few other people. He was really nice and I'd love to get in contact with him. Here's a reference of what his cosplay looked like: http://farm7.staticflickr.com/6034/6295 ... 2075_z.jpg He'd be the one on the left. This also happened in the RenCen's main floor of the Winter Garden. Hope someone can help! ;c

Saturday night before the Touhou Panel and shoot, chatted with a pair dressed as Yukari and Yuyuko while I was in costume as Ran, really should have asked for contact info after the shoot.

Managed to dig up a few pics from the shoots if anyone recognizes them

I wish I would of gotten the number of the boiy in the Fem!Ciel dress.
I waited in line with him at the yaoi panel on both nights and he was really nice.
Kinda sad that I was too scattered brain to catch contact info with him.

That kills people....

There was a girl with light brown and aqua hair in rave attire that I crossed paths with twice on Saturday evening who was super pumped that I was cosplaying Sebastian. Our first encounter, she was in line for the Marriott elevators and stopped me for a hug, regretful that she didn't currently have a camera to take a picture. I later saw her near the escalators leading down to the RenCen food court. This time, she was able to take a picture with me, and asked me for my name so she could add me on Facebook since I was so awesome, lol. At the time, my Facebook was deactivated [I have since returned], and I regrettably only informed her of this before parting with her. I'm aware that "rave girl in a bikini top with blue in her hair" isn't exactly the most specific of descriptions, but I have nothing else to go off of.

It's not much, but I really appreciated her excitement. Here's hoping either she or someone that knows her sees this...

I am looking for a Kankri Vantas that I meet on Sunday. I meet her on the people mover Sunday, she had a sign that said if you stopped her she would draw a charter. She also had a lil Cal in her bag, anyone?

For the days I actually met people I was in an East German Staff Sergeants uniform with green trim and black boots, all in grey in an overseas cap which was also grey with a wool coat with a green stripe on the left wrist.

So, anyhow, to describe the missed connection; it was out in front of the bathrooms near the RenCen food courts, I was on the floor whistling "Twisted Nerve", the whistled tune from Kill Bill. I asked some drunk or high dude to name it, and he didn't seem to know what the hell I was talking about, but you chimed in and named it, and from then on we just had some banter about Tarantino flicks and whatnot. After my pal came out of the bathroom I had to leave, I asked for your name; "Jenna" I believe was what you mentioned. You were cosplaying Hyatt from Excel Saga with your friend. I saw you as I was leaving and we waved. Honestly, I regret not talking to you further but I was pressed for time and I had some personal stuff going on (Not to mention I didn't wanna come off as some awkward con creep. xD)

But Jenna (if I'm remembering the name correctly), I would love to get to know you more and continue talking about movies and pop culture with you some more. If you find this or someone you know spots this, DO NOT hesitate to send me a message on here!

Also, I want everyone else to know that I'm not a man with a one-track mind, if you recall my uniform/costume and we had a good talk, or if you wanted to ask but couldn't for whatever reason, again, you're more than welcome to drop a message to me on here!

See you in 2014 everyone, hope this year was a good one for everyone and those missed connections become made connections!

Looking for the Pepper Potts in the sports bra/Extremis version from the marvel photoshoot on saturday. I was Tony Stark from IM3! I never got any pictures of us together but she did, and would like to see how hers look. And I would love to stay in touch! :)
