So yesterday I went to another convention... It's been more than a year since I've been to one, but this one was very close by, was cheaper, and smaller than others, so i figured "why not"
I decided to cosplay as "Wreck It Ralph", recycling my old Halloween costume (and borrowing my mother's Vanellope doll to use a "prop") because weeks prior, I was busy with fixing/moving/arranging/cleaning things around the house for spring (and I gotta resume some time in the summer, though that's awhile away) so I didn't have time to go out and buy some new cosplay materials.
As for the con itself: It was fun, and a different experience from other cons. It felt awesome for people to actually stop me to take photos of/with me. Only pain in the butt was putting away my glasses each time before I posed each time, but it was no trouble in the end.
Got to meet, shake hands with, and get an autograph from and picture with Johnny Young Bosch, though things did get off to a rocky start since there were certain things the con didn't inform Bosch and some of the staff about, but thankfully Johnny was patient enough to be very understanding. (Also we met him again while we were getting lunch in the cafe while waiting on line for food. He was very nice)
Also played some games in the lobby. I played Melee for a bit with some people, and managed to win several rounds. Every time I gave the final/decisive blow for the match, I exclaimed "I'm gonna wreck it!" or various other sayings that had the word "Wreck" in them, it was fun. Though I did get monstrously trashed in Mario Kart Double Dash.
Got to try Onigiri (AKA "Jelly Donuts" according to Brock from the early dub of Pokemon) for the first time in my life... and I gotta say, call me a weeb all you want, but I really enjoyed it. I would have tried some more stuff, but I didn't wanna over stuff myself. Needless to say I also got a ton of pictures and brought some crap for myself (most of it was either Mario or ninja turtle related)
Also attended my very first costume contest (I didn't enter, I just watched) and then we stayed for a play of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (Never been to a play for the Rocky Horror Picture Show... needless to say, it was sexy, lol) it was a little embarrassing though since I was a "virgin" who had never seen the live version, but it was still fun either way.
All in all, I had a great time and I hope to go back next year better prepared for two days instead of one.
You can see the photos I took below that I posted under another account:
