It's about time I got off my lazy ass and wrote my con report. I really enjoyed AUSA, but I just wish I hadn't run around and tried to do so much, but at the same time I wish I could've done more.Friday:
Got there around 5, and derped around in the room while waiting for Haley and her posse to show up.
Changed into Hungary with Megan as Belarus and we headed to the con to hit up the dealers room for a bit while waiting for Toasty
She arrived, I shoved her into my Hungary dress (as Austria of course), we got her badge and went to Chili's!
We then played Apples to Apples for a bit before going to photoshoot and basically running all around the con. Saturday:
I had to get up at seven to go to my All-District chorus audition.
I got back around eleven, changed into Switzerland and went to McDonald's with Katelyn, Megan, and Katelyn's friend.
Went to the Hetalia Ask A Nation panel and had hilarious times (Italy took off his pants so I had to pretend to be angry and I called Austria a whore; it was glorious).
Was at the public Hetalia shoot for all of five minutes before being dragged away by Toasty to take pictures for her Halloween!Hetalia group. (ILY guys :3)
I went back to the room and changed into Hungary then went and waited in line for the Masquerade with Haley, Katie, and Megan. We were seated pretty quickly then danced like sluts, t'was fun xD
Megan and I went back to the room to see about food and such and I wound up running out of the room and crashed Toasty's mini room-party :3
We headed over to the Hetalia PJ Party bringing tidings of rainbow cupcakes. Lithuania and I ran around for a bit trying to find a place and we all eventually wedged ourselves in a corner and had awesome fun times! I was "God"/the narrator/whatever you want to call it for the Mafia game. So much fun was had xD
The party ended around midnight so Megan and I basically just went and passed out in our room, me with wet hair which was not fun in the morning. D8Sunday:
Woke up at nine and changed into Mikado for the Durarara!! shoot, got to the con and realized I'd forgotten my badge so I went to get it and took Megan's instead since I couldn't find mine and would find it later.
The Durarara!! shoot was fun even though only three of us showed up (me as Mikado, Toasty as Shinra, and Meevist as Kida).
I went back to the hotel to pack up, did so and changed into Roxie Richter (Scott Pilgrim) with Megan as Ramona Flowers.
Showed up fashionably late to the Hetalia Serious Business panel and enjoyed myself there and also learned a lot. Megan and I then went and spent the rest of our money and hung out with Toasty and other amazingly awesome people~
Sat around the entrance and chatted while waiting until three. Then we said our goodbyes and left. ;_;Rating:
AUSA is refreshing compared to all the stupid drama that was at Otakon. I really wish I could've done chess again this year, but alas, goddamned chorus teacher wouldn't let me.
Speaking of that goddamned woman and chorus, I got into the All-District mixed chorus. Which I really didn't want to because while the dates for the festival are the weekend before Katsucon, the make-up snow days are the weekend of
. So I can't make any definite plans for Katsucon because I might wind up only going for Sunday, and if that's the case I might not even bother cosplaying. It sucks balls.
Also I can't just say no and couldn't not audition, the former because the stupid teacher already paid my fees out of her own pocket
, and the latter because she paid for my audition fees and took my score as a grade. I didn't even get a fucking choice and she tells me I should be happy since people who really wanted to get in didn't and I'm one of the few that did.
