EDIT: I have a pic of me in that Gothic steampunky outfit & one of my sister in her fur-suit. She made the whole thing herself! Under the cut since this is long. XD (scroll down to see them)

I'm back & tired. I did have fun! I'm trying to decide whether to go back next year or try Anime Boston. XD When I do go, I'm bringing my latest costume; a Gothic steampunky Prussia. I just felt very girly in it, plus the boots I have to go with it are very comfy. ;p

If you go to any con & "Children Driving Robots" are there, go see them! They are snarkilicious, argue with each other & sometimes audience members, but it's all in good fun. They really are nice peeps. I was in the elevator with one of them & he couldn't apologize enough for the snarky remark I got when I thanked for such a fun panel. I knew the guy didn't mean when he said & I told him that. XD Vic Mignogna had this Star Trek panel that I went to & Let's say he made a better impression on me this time around. :D He & his friends (the nutters! <3) have gotten together & recreated the Enterprise sets, costumes, etc & have made some tribute shows. We got to see the latest one that was out & I swear it was just like watching the original show! I wish I wasn't so shy about telling him how much I liked it. XD CDR had like 3 panels I went to, one on Star Trek, one on Dr Who, & the other on 80's anime. ALL were AWESOME! I also went to a fun yaoi panel, it was mostly talking about the history of it, with a lot of good recs thrown in. :D I also went to a a panel about how the LGBT community was represented in anime & while it's mostly not good, the lesbian couple running it weren't judgemental, they simply pointed out what they had issues with & a lot of the time, even though a series had "issues" they stilled it as well as the gay character in it. It was really easy to get into bashing things, but they kept it light & positive. :D

Stuff I got, was some manga & candy for friends & a t-shirt with a tiger on it for me & some handmade earrings that were a bit steampunky (my sister got a ring there, but gave it to me as it didn't fit her right) & a petticoat. XD

Food was good. We at 1st night in the hotel, since it was RAINING (I've lived through 2 hurricanes & a possible tornado touch down & this was like Florida RAIN). Git a burger that they got wrong, but luckily I was able to peel off the the bacon (it was the more hammy like bacon stuff) & cheese. Fries were good, but $42 for 2 burgers (tip included) & 2 drinks, is A LOT. We ate the next day at thsi lil pizza place. Actually we got food & ate in our room since it was CROWDED. XD My Sicilian pizza was ice cold by the time I got to the room & awful. I think they didn't heat it up long enough. XD My sister's sandwich was good. We went back & just got regular slices. They were better & I was sorry I only got 1 instead of 2 as I was hungry later & wound up eating a bowl of cereal at 1 in the morning, cuz I had empty rumbly tummy. XD We brought cereal & milk & tea with us & water. XD

Lastly the room at the Marriott was awesome! When we got there we asked for 2 beds, but they didn't anymore rooms like that, so we had a king bed. Fear not, we were upgraded to a corner room! It was a short hall too, just 2 rooms aside from ours & we were close to the elevators & it was quiet. :D The room, besides space for a rollaway bed which we declined, had a mini fridge! :D No running around looking for ice. :D That was awesome just by itself. :D


IMG_1511 (I need to see if I can swap out the plastic boning for steel in that corset so I can pull it in more. XD)

EDIT: While replying to a comment, I noticed you can't tell I'm wearing lace up boots. T.T

I'm glad you have fun. Did you get any pictures of your Prussia cosplay?

I've been to anime boston. It's HUGE. So very huge. I'd like to go back though.

Yeah honestly LGBT and anime aren't very good and the yaoi stuff isn't particularly helping matters
Apr. 4th, 2016 08:35 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I do, I'm just waiting for my sister to take them off her camera. XD

Yeah? I wonder if it's ;ole Otakon. XD It looks like it'll be too expensive for us, but maybe one year (when we're richer), we'll meet up there? :D

*nods* Yeah... and that's sad. *sighs*

So glad you had fun :D Hope to see a pic of this new and luscious costume, yes? :) I think you should try Boston next year; something new is always a good try, at least once :)
Apr. 4th, 2016 08:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks!:D Yes, there are pix. I'll post the best one here. :D

I'd love to go there, but after looking it up, it's very expensive. The rooms alone are twice what we just paid for a night in PA. T.T If that wasn't a factor, we'd probably go.

If you go to Anime Boston, I'd love to buy you a cup of tea! I don't attend local cons but the location is an easy subway ride from Cambridge and I like to watch the cosplayers in the city.
Apr. 4th, 2016 11:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah? Thanks! Well, if we do go, we'll have make plans to meet up! I don't what's more fun, cosplaying or watching the cosplayers! XD

Sorry I didn't get to this last night, Kira. I was really tired and a bit spacey.

Gothy steampunk Prussia sounds fun. Have you ever gone to Anime Boston before?

"Children Driving Robots"? I've never hear of them. Are they cosplayers or comedy act or...? They sounds interesting at least.

I have my issues with Vic, but I MIGHT have gone to a Star Trek panel run by him like that.

The Yaoi and LGBT panels sound well done.

Wow. Those were some pricey burgers. At least the pizza was good the second time around.

Woohoo for hotel upgrades! Sounds like you had a good time. :D
Apr. 5th, 2016 11:18 pm (UTC)
That's okay. *huggles*

Thanks! It was! :D No, I haven't. I've thought about going a few times though. It's just that it's very pricey, so we may end up back at Zenkaikon. XD

They're 3 guys who do con panels. Snarky & funny & all the panels I went to were enjoyable & interesting. :D

I do too, but he was very passionate about his love of Trek & I was curious & had nothing else to do. The shows he put together are really well done. We got to see the latest one he had up online.

They were. I got a few yaoi light novel from the yaoi panel.

Yeah. XD Which was good. :D I just have to remember to get regular slices. XD

Yuppers x2!! :D

You both look really good. *is impressed your sister made her fursuit herself* Good luck on swapping out the boning.
Apr. 6th, 2016 12:44 am (UTC)
*BLUSHES* Thanks, Kat! Yeah, she taught herself how to sew & made it. The head & feet/paws she just followed some tutorials she found online.

Thanks! I just need to locate some & see how much I need of it. XD Since that corset is like 6x bigger than what I normally wear & I was told a corset should be 2 sizes smaller... I hope it works. XD

Great pics! Thanks for sharing Kira.

Sorry you had rain, Florida can be a a bad bad thing or interesting huh?

Feeder band rain is icky drenching in spurts or when it rains in the front yard and not in the back yard? I like the second one better.
Apr. 7th, 2016 12:26 am (UTC)
Thanks, Vexed! You're welcome! :D

This was in PA, but it did rain like Florida. XD And yet, we had times when it was clear. XD

That's what it must have been. I've never seen it rain like that. XD

Thank you from Children Driving Robots!
Thank you for the awesome comments! We usually don't get too many comments about our panels, they are super appreciated.

Also, if anyone in our group is snarky, it's just them being friendly...or they need to be smacked in the parking lot. Can go either way. Just throw them in the trunk of a car. ;)

Re: Thank you from Children Driving Robots!
You're welcoem! :D Yeah? I would have thought you would have gotten more as I know I thoroughly enjoyed your panels! :D

*nods* The snarkiness was part of the fun! I look forward to catching you guys next year! Seriously, it was a fun group of panels! :D And I can't recommend you guys enough! :D
Apr. 21st, 2016 01:16 am (UTC)
You guys look cute! I'm glad you had a good time. I've heard good things about Anime Boston but really I've found that you can have as much or more fun at a small con than at one of the huge ones like that and they're much cheaper. Too bad you're so far away there's at least a couple of Florida cons I think you'd like.
Apr. 21st, 2016 02:14 am (UTC)
*blushes* Thanks x2! :D So have I, but I think it's just too expensive for us. T.T We found another one to try & that's in the summer, so much better for me to get away, since I have the summer off. :D It's a small one in Conn, so easy to get to & closer to home. :D Yeah? A pity, cuz I do like the smaller cons. *sighs*
