So about Chibicon this year. It was held in Oulu the 9th of November, and it was to be my last con in 2013, meh. I will face the terrible con withdrawal syndrome until February... Aaaaaanyway, my journey to Chibicon started on Friday the 8th although Oulu is not very far away, but I took the bus with Valkoinen Samurai and Jäätynyt Enkeli to go to Sairu-chan's place and sleep over, yay! <3 We were lucky because as we were walking to Tornio's bus station
We arrived in Kemi and called Sairu-chan, but she was actually standing a few meters from us :'D It felt very nice to see her, but also sort of weird to see her not in cosplay, if you ask me. x)
Her mum drove us to her place and we settled in what would be our place to sleep: a house wagon. Swag. It was actually rather comfy, a bit cold but very funny
We woke up early on Saturday to put on cosplays before Sairu-chan's grandma drove us all to Chibicon. The amount of lag was too damn high, people. x) Valkoinen Samurai and I already had our con tickets; I think I had a picture of the ticket somewhere but I don't know where it went. Maybe I'll edit this post if I find it. Maybe. So the challenge was to put on the armband ticket without having it too tight so that I could take it off without killing it after the con was over. Quite the task if you ask me!
So when we got to the con we first walked around to check the merchandise and the artist alley. Have a random con picture ~
Quality is "meh" because this was taken with my own camera and unedited.
I saw a familiar table and it brought a smile to my lips because I had bought something from these people at the previous con, and I still need to make a post about it, heheh. You will know in time. ~
There was some cool stuff but I didn't buy anything and soon enough
I didn't take part in the photoshoot because I already have quite a lot of pictures of my Chizuru cosplay, and with Valkoinen Samurai as Ryunosuke Ibuki and Sairu-chan as Kosuzu, well I was from the wrong season. Period. But seriously, go check out the pictures on their blogs, they're awesome :'D
I only had one picture but I won't post it because I look way too derp.
If any, I would say...
I don't remember what happened and I know it looks bad when I'm trying to stifle a laugh ^^;
I was freezing so f...ing much, how do you people do it? ;_; Kosuzu saved my life ;A;
I insisted a little to go back inside because I was really cold, and so we did. Jäätynyt Enkeli (who was the photographer) also wanted to go back inside. He was cosplaying Uryū Ishida from Bleach by the way, and totally did meme faces to troll while we were photoshooting. I'm sad we couldn't get a picture of these because seriously, how does he do this with his face?
We were starting to get hungry but... I was like not sure if want to go outside and walk in this cold
and with zori; besides none of us really knew this location well and it looked like there was no cheap food possibility close by... So we trolled to the con cafeteria and saw that there was a MEGASIZE bakery that was surprisingly cheap for its size so each of us had one, yay!
Feat. metsämansikka drink. Because it's one of the flavors I can recognize in Finnish.
It was surprisingly good I must say. After this fika episode, we went to troll some more and re-check the merchandise. We had planned to watch the cosplay competition but it seems that pretty much all congoers had had the same idea, so... we gave up. Sorry CissyDella! But your Ahri cosplay (League of
Draven Legends) looked cool, you know! :'D
We also met this one guy whom we saw at Oulun animeseminaari and Kemin mangapäivää
and had a random bathroom joke, it was very nice to talk to him again!
Also at some point Jäätynyt Enkeli pointed at a plushie and I realized that it was... dun dun dunnnnnnn... Piggie! (from Monster Hunter: Freedom Unite) I kinda wanted to buy it, as well as a small Pinkie Pie plushie
hello bro! but I had pretty much no cash and the seller wouldn't take credit cards. I was sad and rather pissed because I didn't want to walk to the closest hole-in-the-wall (yeah slang, problem?) but Valkoinen Samurai cheered me up. It was getting a bit late and after going to check the artist alley again, I played some Monster Hunter in a corner with him (hunting corner for the win, hohoho) and not long after this Sairu-chan's grandma came to pick us up.
It turned out that we couldn't go home on the same evening so we slept over at Sairu-chan's again. Soooo... have a random after-the-con house wagon picture!
Tired Chizuru is tired...
With this my cosplay year 2013 ended! I am a bit sad but don't worry, I will still post about random home cosplaying >D
I have plans.
I'm outta here, see you! :D
