Okay, I keep having dreams, (but mostly nightmares) about Acen!! AHH! Is this happening to anyone else?

My latest one consisted of us getting to the hotel, and they escorted us to the room, which was smaller than last years, they only gave us one bed, (which had two people on it already), and it was on the 8th floor. And to get to the room, we had to jump over large holes due to the Hyatt construction, where if we missed, we'd fall 8 stories. AHH!!

I had a real sweet dream. I dreamt that I outdid my sister with my Hanfu cosplays. People were cheerin' and screamin' my name, while Excel has a dark cloud over her head (while raining) as her strapless Wedding Yuna dress is soggy and ripped, heh, heh, heh.

One of my dreams. I only had 1 cosplay! That was scary... another one was weird and jumbled and I don't remember details. The latest one I had involved having horrible make-up job where it looks like someone threw purple face paint on my face.

Dun DUN DUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNN! Thats actually pretty funny. ;)

You know those dreams you have when you're first falling asleep and can still do things/hear things going on outside of said dream?
Yeah, I had one of those. I was dreaming I had just walked into the hyatt, it was 70 degrees outside, sunny and breezy, I saw the old carpeting, the statue, other cosplayers. *sigh* I woke up smiling. :lol:

I haven't had any dreams yet, mostly because I find it ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to sleep now that ACen is only about THREE WEEKS AWAY!!!

The only semi-related dream about Acen that I've had so far is going shopping for scissors to cut fabric for my costume xD Needless to say, I caved and bought a new pair yesterday and am very happy about it.

Mine always seems to consist of leaving right now because my group and I are late for the con and for some dumbass reason, each time I forget its the Thursday night before the con. Then my friends and I rush there and we end up missing the whole thing. Then something about fbi agents and people I haven't seen since junior high and high school, lol.

In the last dream I had about ACen, Patrick Stewart was greeting people picking up their badges for some reason. I got a picture with him and for some reason he made me wear sunglasses...
Then, I met up with my group of friends. One of whom hasn't been to ACen for about 3 years.

The funny thing is, the day afterward, Patrick Stewart was on a TV show. Also, my friend who hasn't gone for 3 years is going again this year.

I just had another last night. For some reason everyone was outside enjoying the weather, relaxing by an outdoor pool(I have no idea where that came from). Then, before the con starts, everyone runs inside to the hotel to try and catch an elevator to their room all at once cause they see a huge crowd running towards the hotel. Madness!

I remember a funky dream from last year.

I dreamt that I was showing my friends around chicago during ACen, they promised that we'd be back in time. We came back and we missed most of the con, thankfully I got back in time for the charity ball but my dress was nowhere to be found! So I was escorted out and by the time I could get back in, it was over. The whole con was over. It was sad :(

What was worse is that last year on sunday, me and a friend were sitting outside and a guy came up to us asking where reg is. We told him that the con was over, they already had closing ceremonies. I felt so sorry for the guy cause I knew what he felt cause I felt the same in my dream.

The following is ripped from an AIM conversation i had w/ my cousin about the ACen nightmare I Had last night. The reason i copied it is because I am LAZY.

NoName187187: well for some reason someone said that the location for ACen changed
NoName187187: to a multi level Best Buy
NoName187187: very sleek
NoName187187: had a 2 level concert hall and the misfits were playing
NoName187187: i have running all over the "store" looking for ACen
NoName187187: my dads like hey mike the misfits!
NoName187187: the misfits were only glenn danzig and some guy (Im guessing Jerry Only) dancing with glenn as he sang
NoName187187: the music was just the albums w/ the vocals removes so danzig could sing
NoName187187: the store was trying to lure me away from ACen
NoName187187: i tried to call you on ur cellphone to pick me up
NoName187187: but i didnt know ur (Demon SLayer) #
NoName187187: i couldnt find it
NoName187187: SO in the end i missed ACen on Saturday

I think that means that im not going to spend my money before ACen.

I also had one bout 2 months ago when I didnt finish my Eriks costume i time and had to wear Hojo both days.

I have I very very DISTURBING diesease called P.A.S.

What is P.A.S. you ask? Well it stands for Pre-Acen-Syndrome

The symptoms of this are as followed.
~The lack of sleep due to anticipation and/or a strong desire to finish cosplay.
~Day Dreamyness during school hours and or work about the approaching anime convention.
~More outbursts of random happiness amoungst compatriots. This is believed to come in when the anticipation comes into effect.

Symptoms may also include-
-craving for pocky and other japanese snacks and goodies.
-Craving Ramune and other japanese oriented drinks.
-A desire to watch previous Acen videos on Youtube and other video hosting sights.


Cure: 3 days of AWSOME and fun at Anime Central.

I dreamt that I was at acen on friday night in the lobby and even though I had been there all day, I just realized that I had left all my stuff at home and I wouldn't be able to get it until saturday afternoon and then some guy asked to take my picture even though I was wearing a tshirt and jeans.

Don't even get me started on ACen anxiety dreams. For every convention I get that way; it's always revolving around unfinished cosplays and most usually having to go onstage (the Masquerade) with an unfinished costume. Or forgetting bits of my costumes at home...crap like that.

Also, I've had dreams where our skits are being ill-recieved. =_=; So, in essence, you can tell what I've been worrying about:

A.) Finishing costumes.
B.) Bringing everything I need
C.) People enjoying our skits.

I'm a complete and total ar-tard because a lot of my con depends on that Masquerade. My Masquerade costume and fine-tuning our skit eat my soul. >.@

It seems that everyone's having the cosplay nightmares! I usually ALWAYS have those every year, but the strange thing is, this year, I keep having dreams where costumes are complete, gorgeous, and well-received! o.O So, I wonder, is this a sign of things to come or just really wishful thinking on my part, hoping that I get everything done on time? Who knows--I do know that my countdown says twenty days left and that scares the crap out of me!! O.O
