Please don’t repost it and don’t share outside tumblr.
I love these far too much. XD
What Lexi deals with every Wednesday. XD
Closing out my Otakon week this month with a nice thing that happened to someone else in my group. I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Fan O’Shame—I luckily didn’t find out about it until this year. You sign it if the official Otakon Lost and Found is able to return your item to you.
My friend was rocking a Faceless Old Woman from Night Vale cosplay for most of the weekend, and at one point she lost one of her shawls in a crowded hallway. But fortunately a good samaritan found it and turned it into the lost and found! She was actually able to reclaim it only a few hours after losing it. (And from the looks of the fan, it seems like a lot of other people were able to recover their things too! That says great things about the people finding stuff. :D)
Thanks, Nameless person! You made a Faceless person, and her friends, very happy. :D
This was a moment of convention magic—and not even for anyone in my group! We were on our way back to our room at one point and happened to be behind this awesome Ryuko cosplayer while she was on her way to wherever she was headed. As she was heading toward the door a group of people came through it and one of them stopped, making a nice fuss over her costume and asking if she could take her picture with her. The person—and the other people with her—turned out to be the English cast of Kill la Kill, there as guests of honor! The cosplayer seemed so excited and flattered, and accidentally started a mini photo shoot when other nearby people realized what was happening. These are the pics that my partner and I took; I hope someone got her a good one! (It looked like she might’ve had trouble getting someone to take one for her at first.)
Thanks for letting us share your magic moment, Ryuko! (If you’re out there, or know who she is, drop me a line and I’ll credit her properly for her awesome cosplay!)
****Tagging with these tags in case someone from the fandom is around the area. The theft did -NOT- take place at Otakon, but on a street near the MICA college****
Just to update, my friend lithefider's car was broken into and our luggage, some money,…
Only tagging Otakon to help with the signal boost, and hoping some more Baltimore-area people can see it!
With the start of Sailor Moon Crystal, and the release of the old series with a new dub later this year, it’s a big year for Sailor Moon at conventions. I really wanted to do Viz’s stamp rally and get one of their Otakon-exclusive premiere shirts, and managed to do both! (So glad I got started on the stamp rally early, too; the Guardians got hard to find quick!) I also got a ton of nice compliments on my Sailor Scouts t-shirt. :D
That last picture is the prize I got at the Viz Industry Panel for asking a question; I was the last one to go up. It turned out to be Season 2 of Ranma ½ on Bluray!
(The Viz Media booth was awesome all weekend, by the way. All the workers were super helpful, and they always had fun extras! It was one of my favorite shopping-stops during the convention.)
The line on Thursday was pretty brutal, but we were able to make some bright spots in it for ourselves. This Cabbage Man cosplayer was my personal favorite (photo belongs to my friend). He was a row or so ahead of us in line; early on one of my friends joked that she was going to threaten his cabbages and so he jokingly tried to hide/protect them back. Since the line ended up taking so long we kept seeing him, and the two of them kept escalating the game further and further. XD Anything to pass the time, you know?
I think the best part came later in the weekend when we ran into him again in the dealer’s room, and he still played along. (We were secretly hoping something like that would happen!) The little game was seriously the highlight of the long, long wait.
