Hey all! Back from Kurokiiro and I have to say it was a huge success. The turnout was 540 paid attendees so they hit their goal number. Everyone seemed really happy and excited to be there. I didn't go to any panels or events but because of the size of things, I think I saw everyone that attended.
On Sunday Pikachu decided to come along, he was quite popular and got his picture taken a lot. I think he's going to get a big head. At the least, Pikachu will probably be attending conventions with us from here on out.
Speaking of conventions, my next convention will be at Nekocon down in Hampton Roads, Virginia the first weekend of November(AHH. Less than a month! So much to doo). If anyone happens to spot this that is in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello!
I've also decided to start the"Bloop on Head" project. I haven't decided how I'll be setting this up quite yet but I am hoping to have a gallery of people with pictures of Octobloops on their heads. My goal is to someday have pictures of bloops infront of iconic structures like Tokyo Tower and the Arc De Triomphe. If I ever manage to see a Bloop on the head of Tom Felton, well I think that would be the crown jewel of the collection(because seriously, a Malfoy with a bloop on their head? A-MA-ZING.) Expect to see more information about the gallery soon.
Speaking of galleries, I'll be uploading all my convention pictures soon. I generally stick to snapping photos of cosplayers and displays so there are only like...50 photos maybe? But there were a lot of lovely outfits!
One of my favorite parts of conventions is the array of costumes and clothing people wear. I don't generally cosplay myself(something I intend to change) due to the fact that I overheat(boo kittens), however, I absolutely LOVE the detailing a lot of people put into their attire.
In other news, the apartment fiasco is still being handled. We spoke with our complex manager last night and I am happy to report that we'll be rent free for this month. This is taking a huge weight off of our shoulders. My boyfriend and I are intending to(Gods willing) travel to Japan next year. The trip will be a combination of pleasure and business as I am hoping to get an upclose look at current fashions and trends in Japan. Since we are planning for this, we are trying to power-pay off all the loans so we can start putting large sums aside for our trip. As much as I hate this whole situation, it's allowing us to pay off our computers since we'll have extra this month. Hurray!
And on that note, I am off to paint a kitchen. I leave you with todays give-aways at Mrs. B's 31 Days of Halloween. Head over and enter for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
