Heyhey everyone o/
So yeah here is my obligatory post-MCM journal. It was a really great weekend aside from the cold and the wind and the fact I seem to have come down with some sort of bug which has left me feeling constantly nauseous (ﾟ´Д｀ﾟ)ﾟ it's not a good feeling! Rex let me stay at her place for the weekend and I enjoyed a spot of watching her play some AC3 on top of making fun of Nile from Attack on Titan pfff.
We met a few really nice people from the Hetalia fandom which we both cosplayed from after many years! She was Hungary in Traditional style dress and I went as Hong Kong in the more recent art. We both ended up being late for the meet on Saturday due to being told rather last minute that it had moved and it was pretty hard to get involved because everyone literally seemed to be so in to it that it was hard to jump in at any point so we kind of loitered and ended up missing the photoshoot too which was a real shame because we were excited for that (；´∩｀；) but I was happy to get some pictures with a really nice 2p!China and another really sweet Hong Kong. Ah there was also a super sweet God Tier!Roxy cosplayer who hung with us! Super sweet really, but I can only feel a little guilty because Rex and I are both super incredibly awkward to be around and I am so shy so there was very little conversation happening- but it was still nice to be thought highly of! Oh gosh and all the cosplays that we saw- I have to say that the guy cosplaying as the armoured titan has to be my favourite because he was so tall and nice sidfhsdf.
Got plenty of sweet l00t over the weekend too; I purchased a couple of SnK posters, a fair amount of pocky, a Miku nendoroid for my sister, a creeper tee for my brother and a SnK cardigan for myself which is so comfy and smart looking aaaa! Not to mention all the food and strawberry Fanta which is super delicious by the way.
Sunday wasn't so bad either, still super cold and our feets were hurting like heck from all the walking (plus my shoes got pretty uncomfy after a while) but yet again we missed the Hetalia meet (Rex didn't opt to cosplay that day) so we just spent a lot of time getting photos and hugs and last minute merch- then funnily enough when we went to do an indoor photoshoot for me, we found the Hetalians! Well, a small group of them anyway, they called out "HONG KONG!" and scared the absolute frick out of me to the point where I stood on one leg like a flamingo and looked around like I'd just heard a scary noise hahaha;; （ ´∀｀） aaah embarrassing. I wish I could have actively gone over and hung with them but I was so shy because by now they would all gotten to know each other (plus I wasn't on the forum this time, good going me) and ah.. well I got some nice photos done and one or two people came over to say hi and it was nice. After that it was pretty much getting more photos until hometime!
So overall it was great- there were a few lowpoints but they weren't bad enough to make me feel sad or anything, really I enjoyed this expo and it was a big shame that I didn't get to see certain people that I was looking forward to seeing after a year but there's always next time I suppose! I'm looking forward to it. Until then, I'm deciding on what to do for next May! There may be a chance of me using Hong Kong once more because the reception was good but there are other things I'd reaaally like to do. Possibly Magi cosplay or SnK. Who knows. I'll give it some thought after Crimmas.
I HOPE that those who also went to MCM this time had a really good weekend too.
Bah-bye! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
