Since there's a thread about things that went wrong, what about things that went awesomely right? What were the best things that happened to you this con?


For me, it was:

1. All the people asking about my ocarina and complimenting my playing, along with dubbing me "Ocarina girl".
2. Someone who asked me to play for him so he could sleep.
3. The Death the Kid that picked me up.
4. Prussia that took off their pants for me.
5. When the IRT asked me to go play on a higher floor so it would echo better.
6. Vocaloid cosplayers who were singing along to the songs I was playing.
7. Getting hugged by people who liked my playing!
Tuu tuu tuu
I have an ocarina
Duu duu duu
And it makes a sound like this

I would have to say the most awesome thing for me was the IRT team clearing the hall and escorting our Bioshock cosplay group to the wall, and then keeping the mob of people taking photos back. It made us feel like Celebrities... Even if they kicked us out 15 minutes later for being a fire hazard xD

When it rains, USE IT! It started dumping on the Fairy Tail photoshoot.. so we snagged the ice and rain mage cossers for photos. The rain didn't last long, so momma nature kind of..created a backdrop.

This actually happened at Mitsuwa on Thursday, but okay. I completely adore Germany. The actual country. So much that I want to live there. When we went to Mitsuwa, I noticed one of their gashapon machines had the FIFA 2010 jersey phone charm gashapon. I really got into the World Cup last year, so I decided to buy one, since I'd have been happy with any of them really. Well, I got Germany. I was STUNNED. That was just really cool ;3;

As for actual at con things, seeing one of my favorite artists in the AA who I follow on dA actually way selling prints of their Der Erlkönig art. Getting a French Revolution fem!France to pose with her sword up to a Mami Tomoe's throat. Making some new friends this year. A friend and I singing D-City Rock down the street between the Hilton and the Hyatt at midnight after the Panty and Stocking panel. So many things.
South Korea likes breasts.
Ukraine has breasts.
She has them in spades.
If South Korea and Ukraine were to hook up...
Then South Korea would never have a shortage of breasts ever again.

At the Doctor Who photoshoot Friday night:

"Oh my god, I know you guys don't know each other, but will you PLEASE kiss each other because it'd totally be fangirl service."

*does so, more than once*

"Oh, hi, btw, my name's (name)." "oh cool, my name's myrla!"

~

Hysterical, and ironically next year we are planning to come back as Rose and Nine, as well as do another costume set (from Repo! the Genetic Opera). So, thanks to whoever wanted Nine and Rose to kiss, because I made a great friend out of it. :)

Yup! That was definitely me screeching it out. I thought you guys were mad at first! But thank you so much!! It's unfortunate that I had to leave shortly after I moved floors.

I'd have to say that both of mine happened at the One Piece shoot on Saturday. First was the cheers we got as our entire CP9 group walked out to the 'stage area' and the second was the adorable Sanji kissing my hand. *mighthavehadafangirlmoment*

At YoumaCon last year, I saw Wizzy Wig had these Digimon Xros Wars figures in the little boxes and you get a random Digimon. I was so focused on getting a certain Digimon that I ended up getting all, but two. At ACen on Friday I bought two more in hopes of getting the last two, but I didn't. On Sunday, I went back and grabbed three more and lo and behold, two of them were the last two I needed! I was so happy that I told one of the people at Wizzy Wig about it because she was the one who sold them to me at Youma. :heart:

Whoever that guy was playing the guitar on Saturday evening near the crane table. It made the origami that much more extreme. XD

Although this was technically after ACen, this. Meeting Eric Vale just made my entire weekend.

Best thing?
I have a few that come to mind

-getting to know franky better, plus making awesome new friends!!! hanging out in hyatt lobby ftw!
-meeting eric vale(after con, but still counts xD)
-great turnout for the one piece shoot
-A few of my fellow soul eater cosplayers, The awesome Black Star that i ran into several times and mock battled, and the Spirit who I also encountered a bunch who was totally in character and it rocked!

Plus, I got so many compliments on my Maka Albarn cosplay! It made me so happy especially after all the trouble I had with the coat. Thanks to all those who did

Getting a cookie on each night for the Gundam Panels.

Night 1 was due to my "Somebody's not getting a cookie!" line. Night 2 was because of my "Char-Mander Aznable" line.

For some reason, I was in some sort of rare zone of wittiness and timing.

Mine was probably being able to be "Berserk" in the Whose Line is it Anime program. THAT was so, so fun and a life altering experience, hahahaha. And also being one of the first people in line for the Masq. I felt cool--and it had me meet some really cool people that ended up being my friends. ^_^

Oh, so you're the one that nearly knocked me out of my seat with that performance during Whose Line.

Best moments...lets see:
1. Having a massive nostalgia trip in the video game room.
2. The entire Whose Line experience (From meeting the cast while in line, witnessing a "rickroll-off", to laughing to the point of crying during the show).
3. Seeing one of Satoshi Kon's last pieces of animation (which I didn't even know existed).

Lets see getting into the masquarade after my entry was lost and hoping there would be an opening for skit and there was, and hearing the people Roar when I started dancing to Ghostbusters, and my tutting for once my hands were flat instead of curved like ducks though they were pointed down instead of level, the sailor moon girl letting me pet her wings that had feathers on them, getting to actually see my friends from anime 101 anime club at ipfw around the place for once, and Finaly having people recognize what character I was and taking my picture for once without me having to beg them to do so.

O and meeting Hiydako Snider that survived the abomb, and getting to be the only one that got in a question since the panel had to go, and seeing Yoshiki up close from the front row at his first ever radio show from acen, though he cusses alot, and that one Catholic girl from Terra Haute Indiana, that talked with me as we ate, and cosplayed someone from Ranma 1/2 and had the flower teapot.
