Day 3, much like the day before, I was going as Loki. Seemed bit hotter that day to, and my poor shoulders from carrying my back pack around. I need to figure something new out about that. I got there a bit earlier then the day before to so that felt nice.
Day started off lame, I had some unforeseen delays, and get here kind of late in the day. I felt kind of drained till a friend of mine spotted me and we talked shortly. After that I found myself feeling pretty good and became charged up. Nothing really different happened during my time there but it was all good still.
So, that was an entertaining ride. I started the day picking up something a friend borrowed for a cosplay she had planned on doing for another con at the begging of the year but didn’t fall through. Oh well. It was hot out, so getting inside felt rather nice. And the lines to pick up badges were given a lot of praise because of how fast they went by.
Pretty much one thing that bothered me the entire time was the fact I didn’t see many of my friends there, and not sure why. But on day one I took off a bit early, but during the time there, i got a nice bunch of photos. So behold.
Last day of the con, and despite how much fun I had I’m glad it’s over with. The day started off meeting with another friend thats never been to a convention before and was interested after seeing some photos I showed her after we first met. We met up at Union Station morning and from there we went down and once we entered the building said it was like she was in some kind of fantasy, and had wished she dressed up in something herself. Also I came again as Loki and this time had the scarf with me, Stopped by a few people and had them take photos of me and found others, one of them also being suit and tie and was a guy (because most Loki’s you see are actually girls). I ended up spending much of the day hanging out with friends of mine. Everyone was so tired and you can see it in their faces as they walked by through the halls, but over all it was good.
A little webcam photo I took awhile ago asking some people on facebook if they want to do a shoot with them holding it looking all bad ass and such. Sadly not sure that can happen because it’s leaking and I can’t figure out why. I’ve covered up the hole but nothing is working. Anywho, how I got it is during Anime Expo there was a big bus in front in the convention center with a demo of the game Firefall and if you signed up for the beta they would give you this giant, inflatable gun. I asked if it worked on mac but was told it didn’t, but they said to just sign up anyways and I got it. And now that I can’t do anything with it anymore because of this crappy leak and I want a new gun.
They are all now online… yes! so many of them, holy crap. Now day 4 wasn’t exactly very eventful, I walked around taking more photos and a little video (which is coming, not a lot but I have some. just hope tape didn’t warp anywhere), and because there were a lot less people there I didn’t get as many photos but of what I did they came out nicely. Also something I need to do is once again figure out a new gallery system, all this manual stuff is a pain in the ass so I need to pull something off.
The day started off with something really strange happening. as I was walking by the blue line station I hear some guy screaming out “stop!” and I see him grab some guy saying he is making a citizens arrest and calling for the guards at the station to do something about him. I have no idea what happened, figured it was because he might of hit the guy or told something from him and just got on his bike and rode off. So the first guy is yelling out “I don’t feel safe in this area anymore.” “lets all break the law, we should give him a medal.” Turns out it was because the guy was riding his bike on the platform. Yes it is recommended not to do that but most people don’t really care anyways that I’ve found.
Much more hanging around, taking photos, and later that day a friend of mine with me find herself a bit of a stalker, he was walking around her for a while taking photos from different angles so we called one of the staff guys to help us out to cover her and get the guy kicked out if we catch him doing it again with her or anyone else. So remember everyone, AX staff are also there to keep us safe. and later that night there was a rumor a girl was kidnapped but it turned up she went home without telling her friends so all was fine.
