Con Report (now with pix)

Report under cut cuz it's LONG. XD

On Friday I went to Zenkaikon. I had planned on staying the whole weekend, but my sister & I got sick. T.T *feels like I'm getting a chest cold* On the way there, we stopped at the King of Prussia (yes, that's an actual place) rest stop & she took my pic under the sign as a goof & also to remember that while I haven't been to San Souci yet, I got close in spirit. ;p From there, we made our way to Lancaster, PA. The traffic getting through the City was awful, but once we hit Jersey, it was fine. :D So we get there, check in, find out we have to share a king bed, cuz all the queens were taken, but it was still a nice room. We stayed in the Marriott which was connected to the convention center. The whole place was very nice & had some elements of the old mixed in with the new. So we throw our stuff down on the bed (made 2 trips from the car), I whip out my wig & "Gilbird" & a few accessories & we were good to go. So we go back downstairs & find out where registration was, get our badges & hit the dealer's room/artist alley (it was nicely combined). Having brought my money with, we shopped & I picked up a few prezzies for some friends & a Prussia cat. :D He's a sweet, rather big, fleece plushie. I carried him everywhere, except to dinner, & on a subsequent trip to the dealer's room, I got a Germany cat too, that I also carried with me. XD

So we went to McDonald's for dinner, which was a 5 minute walk away form the hotel & good, cheap grub. :D Back at the hotel, we looked at schedule & I decided I wanted to go see a few things, so I went to a panel on Japanese folklore (very interesting, done by a professor, who actually teaches it), a panel on fanfiction with dramatic readings (hysterical!! and the best panel I went to. :D), and one on hentai for laughs & giggles that was basically about tentacle porn. XD So I go to the fanfic one, get there early & slip in on the panel on Adventure Time, don't watch the show, but it was entertaining. I was a bit late for it & had my kitties, so I was known as the cat lady when I walked in. It was in a small room & well, hard to miss someone walking in. XD So I sit through it & discover much to my horror & annoyance (cuz that necessitated a trip to my room on the 9th floor & elevators are had to get into cuz they're always FULL), I needed a 18+ wrist band to attend the panel I wanted to see. Luckily for me the staff was really awesome & knew their stuff & this guy walked me over there & back to where I was. So I get in & attend a panel that was basically dramatic readings of horrendous fanficcage. XD It had some audience participation & the panelists gave out goodie bags full of candies & condoms. XD They read a Harry Potter cross-over that was hysterical & asked the volunteers to come up with an ending as the fic kinda just died & then we voted on what we liked best. :D Mind you, they left in all the grammar errors & stuff form ficcage they found on the net. They had another Harry Potter one about Hermione & the sorting hat (yes, you read that right. ;D) having smex. o.0 It ended with Snape stepping in to have sex with her to save her from the hat. XD The final one was Batman/Robocop crossover & they had a guy reading Batman in a Batman voice & it was HYSTERICAL!! XD Apparently, Batman needed help solving his cousin's murder & teamed up with Robocop, where the murder was somehow forgotten in favor for smexing it up in an abandoned (for the moment) hobo town (in an old warehouse). The only problem was Robocop was only allowed to take his penis home on the weekends which were his days off. XD So they improvised with a batgrenade & for lube they used some old Robocop oil. ^^; A fun time was had by all who attended that panel. They ended with a madlib made from a fic they found. XD

So then it was more wanderings until the hentai panel. I got there, waited on line while my sister crashed & burned, it was close to 12 at this point & we got into the end of the anime burlesque show. My sister took one look at the guy dressed like Super Mario & was like WTF?! When he started to take off his overalls amid the catcalls & had enough. I stayed, saw some girl take stuff off, an Asian guy, who I had seen earlier cosplaying as Belle, & who for some reason reminded me of Rhys, sorry n0t-chan, XD but he was hot & I have seen a few pix of Rhys. XD It finished up with this girl who could have easily passed for 14, 15. ^^; Then it was time for the tentacle porn. Which basically was a top 10 list complete with film clips & in 2 instances, doujinshi that were read by volunteers. Thank you Dr. Ren for all your ficcage, cuz it wasn't as squicky (including the ones with gore in them), as I thought it would be. So from that panel, I learned that a) Japanese animated porn makers failed not only biology class, but also that class on anatomy as evident by young girls getting raped but demons with penises that are BIGGER than they are, XD That if you inflate a pair of boobs large enough you can stick a penis in the nipples, XD, c) bestiality gives an all new meaning to "my lil pony" (both doujinshi involved smexing it up with horses), d) that cocks not only come in all shapes & sizes, but also varying degrees of pixilation, ;D and e) Japanese animated porn is basically f*cked up & they must have been doing some whacky drugs to come up with this stuff. (no offense to those who enjoy it. XD) It truly was a WTF moment. XD So concluded day one.

Day two, we get up my sister's sick, so she goes abck to sleep & I get dressed up as fem!Prussia & look fopr the panel I wanted to see on creating characters in fiction. It was boring & they were uninformed, cuz they claimed 100 pages is a novel & let me tell you, every book I've ever read was way more than that. XD I've written short stories that are 30, 40 pages long & only 10,000 or so words. XD Anyways I was sitting with the creepy guy, who was talking with me while we waited on line to get in. He sat next to me & kept touching my leg with his & it was getting on my nerves, when I looked out the open door & saw this lil Spain walk by followed by some other Hetalians. I decided it was a sign form G-d that I should leave & I beat a hasty retreat, as I left & headed towards the elevators, their Prussia walked past so I I called out, "Hey, Prussia!" "He" waved, walked a few paces, turned around & glomped me. It was an awesome moment of self-cest! :D So I asked them if I could hang with them & Prussia was like, "YES!!" so I did. When they got hungry & wanted to go to lunch, I said I wasn't hungry (which was true) & I wanted to change as my boots were hurting me. I got lucky & met up with them later. I had also wanted to check on my sister & I managed to get her & myself lunch before meeting up with them again. XD

So while hanging with them, we were on the second floor & there's a part near some escalators that overlooks the lobby, & I spot of all things a chibi!Prussia, so we all yelled down at her to come up & she did & hung with us for a bit. We actually had various Hetalians come & hang with us here & there. Anyways, our lil group, of the 2 Prussias, one Spain, one Canada & an Italy, met up with some Homestuck cosplayers who wanted to play a game with us in like a half hour & we found them again & then went in search of an area to play spin the bottle, cuz their leader thought it would be a fun way to get the 2 fandoms together. She STRESSED cosplay is not consent, before starting & we made sure that those who weren't comfortable with kissing, could kiss on the cheek or hug & if they were totally against touching of any kind they could do a truth or dare. We also had the option of playing the pocky game, until someone stepped on the pocky. XD We must have had like 30 people cuz the group kept getting bigger & bugger & we also made sure to keep a free passage way & didn't block anything important & moved when asked to. Anyways I got to hug an England as they were dared to hug me XD & I hugged a Terazi troll. After moving around a bit, we split up. The Spain was really cute, cuz when the Homestuck leader asked if anyone was uncomfortable with kissing, he said he was only 14 *dies, cuz I was glomped by a slightly older Prussia & I'm like almost 30* XD, everyone was like "AWWWWWEEE... how cute, but totally cool!" At one point Prussia decided to change clothes & characters so I held her flag & her food while she changed cuz food in a bathroom is just gross. XD When I left them to check on my sister & get lunch in the building, it had been snowing that morning & I didn't want to go running around, I met up with a Seychelles. For those not familiar with Hetalia, that country is portrayed by a girl of color with long pigtails & a blue dress. I have to say, not only were they ones I've met as sweet as pie, but they were also very pretty. XD So sister was revived somewhat by a long nap & lunch & she got the camera & came with & we took various pix. Seychelles, who took a selfie with me, I was able to take a pic with, & various other peeps. I was also very happy to find Prussia again (she had changed back during one of our moves from place to place in the game. XD) I got a pic with them & another hug goodbye, she was really awesome! :D I also found a group of SPN cosplayers. I had spoken with Cas while getting lunch & was happy to get a pic with them. Took me a few minutes to realize the peeps she was with were the rest of the cast. ^^; They also recognized me when we traveled down in the parking lot elevator. I wasn't wearing my wig & they wanted to hang with us, but we were going home. T.T

Despite feeling ill & waking up today with a chest cold, I had fun. The con staff was awesoem. They knew their stuff & several times they went out of their way while claiming they were headed there, to take me to where I needed to be. The panels were where they were supposed to be & weren't randomly closed down or time & place switched. Sadly, I missed both Hetalia photoshoots, the first cuz I didn't know it was going on, the second cuz we wanted to get home & it was going on while we were Jersey. XD

Some pix:

Sorry y'all got sick. I am glad you had some fun anyways. *huggles*
Mar. 30th, 2015 03:27 am (UTC)
Thanks, Vexed! *huggles* It wouldn't be a con, if we didn't get sick. XD
Mar. 30th, 2015 03:56 am (UTC)
I'm sorry you were sick.

Yay to the cats. Pictures of them?

Yes, Japanese animate porn is all kinds of f'ed up crap. (so is their live action stuff, points to this post http://cornerofmadness.livejournal.com/1865389.html)

Sounds like you had a good time in spite of being ill. The dramatic readings sound like fun. I can NOT unsee the Batman/Robocop thing. Dear god.

I haven't been in King of Prussia in forever.
Mar. 30th, 2015 07:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I still have the headache form hell, but I'll live. :D

I'll see if my sister can send me the pix, cuz they are in some of them. :D

Oh yeah. XD *trots over there to go see it*/*DIES LAUGHING* OMG! That actually was quite tame compared to what I saw. XD But yeah... XD

I did! And they were awesoem! It was the best panel I had ever seen! It was HYSTERICAL!! *LAUGHS*

Yeah? I heard they have a huge mall there. Maybe one of these days, I'll get to see it & spend more than 15 minutes in the town. XD
Mar. 30th, 2015 09:27 pm (UTC)
Aw, hope the headache goes away soon.

Hopes to see the pictures.

Yes compared to the anime it's tame. Some of that anime (especially the gay version of hentai) are really really out there.

It sounded hysterical.

Yeah I've heard there's a big mall but I'm from the opposite side of the state so I'm only there passing through to somewhere else
Mar. 30th, 2015 09:43 pm (UTC)

Yeah, she came home from work, so I'll ask her after dinner & I'll add them to this post.

*nods* I can't even begin to imagine how out there that would be. XD

It was! :D

Aaah... I'm coming form the other side. Still, it was fun to pass through it it. :D
Mar. 30th, 2015 09:50 pm (UTC)

Honestly they were more uncomfortable to see than they were sexy.

It's a fun name. PA has a lot of goofy names
Mar. 30th, 2015 10:38 pm (UTC)

Yeah... XD

Oh yeah! I agree with you on that one. :D
Mar. 31st, 2015 12:35 am (UTC)
*HUG* Sounds like you had a lot of fun. Sorry you got sick.
Mar. 31st, 2015 12:40 am (UTC)
*huggles* Thanks, Kat! I really did! The best part is I got to go to panels! :D

The not so good part, we got sick. T.T
Apr. 11th, 2015 07:02 pm (UTC)
You're welcome, Kira. That's great. Not the getting sick part.
Apr. 11th, 2015 07:39 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm beginning to think it isn't a con if we don't get sick. XD
Apr. 11th, 2015 07:44 pm (UTC)
Perhaps XD
Apr. 11th, 2015 07:47 pm (UTC)
Mar. 31st, 2015 03:58 am (UTC)
Love the pictures. The kitties are adorable and so are you guys
Mar. 31st, 2015 06:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad you liked the pix! Those kitties are soft & squishie the way a plushie should be. :D
Mar. 31st, 2015 07:59 pm (UTC)
Cool. Yes the pics were great
Mar. 31st, 2015 08:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D
Mar. 31st, 2015 08:52 pm (UTC)
I'm trying to decide if I just read this right: you saw an Asian guy at a fandom burlesque show, stripping out of a Disney heroine's costume - and you thought of my husband...???

... oh, even if I read that wrong, I don't CARE! That's hilarious! *laughing hard enough to choke*

And oh, are you so ADORABLE in these! Such a wonderful smile you always have, beauty :D Glad you had fun :D Feel better soon!
Mar. 31st, 2015 09:05 pm (UTC)
I probably wrote it wrong, but yeah, there was something about him that screamed Rhys to em. XD He had been cosplaying during the con as Belle. XD

Glad I can amuse you! :D

*BLUSHES* Thanks! Awe... <3 Thanks! I'm trying to, but I have a feeling I have a low grade fever. *is FREEZING & exhausted*
Apr. 11th, 2015 06:03 pm (UTC)
Yay, now there are pictures. Very cute.
Apr. 11th, 2015 06:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah. XD

Thanks! :D
Apr. 11th, 2015 06:32 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. ^_^
Apr. 11th, 2015 06:34 pm (UTC)
Apr. 26th, 2015 11:30 pm (UTC)
Child, what are we going to do with you? You should know by now that you get con crud AFTER the con, not during. AFTER. Don't be an overachiever.

That looked like a lot of fun other than the illness part. Con crossdressing adult entertainment seems to be a trend (one I'm in favor of). Swampcon this year had a drag show with a super deluxe economy sized Black Widow who absolutely rocked.
Apr. 27th, 2015 12:42 am (UTC)
I know... But at this point, it's not a con unless we get sick. XD We consider it part of the fun. XD

It really was! Yeah! :D That must have been AWESOME!! :D
