We arrived at the hostel, were told we had to walk up five flights of stairs to get to our room. We were told this would be fixed that day. THEY LIIIIEEED. I walked up those stairs SO MANY TIMES. I think I've lost weight. :D We got dressed, which is yay, and we wandered down to the convention.
Oh, the line. We waited for 2 hours, then ran off to pay our bill for Dracula's so we could eat that night, came back and had to wait for another hour. We got in, went to Fruits then buggered off to go eat dinner.
Dracula's was AWESOME! We had fun there, in our Fruits contest clothes. We went back to the hostel, climbed the death stairs then practiced our Hare Hare Yukai dance until like 2 am, we got the rest of our group taught it though.
Oh, we rode the line again with the rest of our friends. Merrick and I walked to Melbourne Central dressed as Cloud and Kurogane, we got some awesome looks and had some photos taken down near Coles. Oh yeah. Anyone got that photo? It was win.
We got inside JUST IN TIME for the cosplay comp, thanks to some lovely volunteers who let us cut the HUGE line. I was this close to a breakdown.
We got runner up for Best Skit. The Best Skit went to some awesome KH cosplayers. You guys rocked. Majorly.
Anyway, after that we spent some more money, watched some anime and then went back to Nomads, where we ate LOTS OF MACCAS and practiced the dance more. Oh, the fun.
HARE HARE YUKAI CONTEST ENTRY:
Sundaaaaay! We all got dressed and went to the uni where we went to the Hare Hare Yukai comp, then to the flash mob. THEEENNNN to the cosplay comp, where we did okay. We had fun. Dressed as KH2 people, all fun.
Then we watched some anime, spent some money and wandered around before I wandered back up A'Beckitt st wearing my pants as a skirt because they'd been annoying me for hours.
Then we went home, and I uploaded my pictures and then started typing this. We had a great time all weekend. ALL WEEKEND. Even if I scared Mon, poor Mon.
Anyway, that's the end of my report, which is short. Go through my albums and stuff... that's all my photos.
Some photos from Neil's gallery of my group on Saturday, because I didn't get any.
Krissy, Steve and Boo:
Anyway, the report this year is boring because I didn't get half as many pictures as I wanted to on saturday because of the cosplay comp and riding the line again, but next year I'm hoping to take even more. I need to clone myself, I swear. One to volunteer (which I meant to do this year but didn't), one to take pictures and one to cosplay. Then I should be fine.
Ah, too much Manifest and not enough hands.
Anyway, because Neil Creek is god:
