Pocky Status: Eaten!
After the masquerade, everybody seemed to be riding on the euphoria of victory. Many pictures were taken, and Genjitsu tried to round up the COSP ML and ACP people for group photos. Things were too hectic though, and in the end Genjitsu just took more random pictures. He managed to get a shot of the Trigun cosplayers, with their incredible props! (He promised himself he would analyze them later) He met up with Azumi and Albert, and had a late night dinner, where he taunted Azumi with out-of-reach sugar packets. He checked out the dance briefly, and stopped by the second Megatokyo Panel to meet up with Dom. But the masquerade seemed to suck all the energy out of Genjitsu. That, and the hotel seemed unusually quiet, so at around 3 Genjitsu fell asleep with a smile on his face.
But my fears were unfounded; this was helped by the
friendliness of the congoers. Many of them were open to questions
about their costumes, and in general just exhibited an enthusiasm
for cosplay that I sorely missed. It was also interesting attending
this con from a non-cosplayer perspective. With the exception of Kamui,
all my costumes were at home, and I had resolved to stay very low
profile at this convention. I certainly took a lot more pictures than
usual, but at the same time, I felt like I was missing out on a part
of why I go to cons in the first place.
Until next time!
