Naka-Kon Day 2

I'll fix all of the ridiculous spelling and grammar mistakes I know I'll make later...
Anyway, day two has drawn to a sad close. Sad? Because I actually enjoyed myself. The day itself was actually very uneventful in terms of me going to con events.
Our day started off at some stupid hour in the morning. I said it was 6am, our neighbors declared it was more like 7am. Why does what our neighbors say matter? Because they woke me up this morning. Not that I was complaining. They continued through most of the morning giggling and squee-ing like small fangirls. Ugh, right?
Watched Green Lantern and Young Justice. Last episodes. My feels.
Those reviews might come along later, when I know most of my followers have watched it. Kelly.

Anyway, the giggling continued well into the time that I was getting cleaned up. Many thoughts went through our heads and many ideas sprouted.
1. Tell them to shut up.
2. Take that picture of the Edward Elric face with the tongue sticking out and put it on the inside of our conjoined door... because, well, we have one of those rooms where it's connected, but you have to open both of your doors to see each other? Yeah.
3. Slenderman notes.
After much(five seconds) of debating what to do, we decided to try the Slenderman letters. We figured we had a 50/50 chance that the room next door would understand it.
A few screams later... they understood it.

We then decided that this would make a much better thing to do with our time and slipped another note under their door.
Hilarity ensued.

Now, now... before you say "YOU KNEW THEM, NO FAIR", I'd like to point out that WE DID NOT KNOW THESE PEOPLE WHATSOEVER.

At this point, I was hungry, Sam was hungry, Adam was hungry, David was hungry... we were all kinda digging the idea of noms.
We ran out to Jason's Deli and got some delicious freaking sandwiches.

After that, it was time for me to force myself into the corset and brave the idea of parading around a con as a pin-up version of Poison Ivy. Pics to be posted later.
Getting to the con, of course we had to check out the vendor's room. I mean... after the clusterfaygo that Friday was? We needed it. The vendor's room hasn't gotten much larger than it was last year. Not surprising, but still kind of disappointing.
Saw a few vendors I knew and loved.
No, I haven't bought anything yet. I still have to grab a present for my mother, though.

FUN FACT: The original Playstation 1 game, Legend of Mana? $89.99 market price. So, apparently I have a freaking valuable game sitting in my basement somewhere?

Other than that, no pictures, lots of rude people, and very...very claustrophobic for some reason. Maybe it was because I kept being attacked by rude people. 

We checked out the game room next.
The game room was larger than the vendor's room.
It solved con funk.
It solved con funk.
Kind of.

I ran into my favorite baby momma, Crystal, who had her girlfriend in tow. We got along, we complained to each other, we laughed, we cried about Mass Effect.

Other than that, I spent most of my con people watching and getting pictures with random cosplayers who were walking by.

This is where I tell you about the good deed I have done.
There was a young girl, not too far away from our group, who had a cardboard sign. Usually, I'm just kinda huff and puff and asking why she's allowed to have a sign and people I know get theirs taken away on a semi-hourly basis.
Her sign read: "Dumped yesterday. Birthday today."
With some more information underneath it.
I'll post her picture below when I get it uploaded onto this computer.

Guys, I ask you to send me well-wishes for this girl so I can pass them on, or I have her phone number available for you. She was a very sweet girl and I was glad I grabbed a picture with her.
Please do that for me!
During my people watching, I met tons of characters. Some of which will be posted below.

I noticed something a little odd about this convention, actually. In terms of cosplayers, no one was really going for the "wow" factor. At least anyone that I was really aware of.
The cosplays that were attracting the most attention seemed to be Homestucks, ponies, and Adventure Time. And, while I have no problems with this, it just kind of bummed me out that I only had one person ask me for a picture/recognize me. She was super nice, by the way. Shout out to that girl. <3
Asking around, it turned out that a lot of the DC and Marvel cosplayers had that issue. I guess it just wasn't our con.

After a few hours of people watching, we ran to get food at Korma Sutra-- one of the best Indian food restaurants I've ever been to. Trust me, 4-5 courses of food, and a show.
I'll post that picture later.
Let's just say dinner included lots of random singing, insults, and laughing/crying at the same time.

Returning, we were wondering if it was time to strike against our loud neighbors again. We wrote up another note when they got audible and slipped it under their door.
With that, we heard a "BRING IT ON".
So, we did.
We decided to play some static noise and the "Gimme 20 Dollars" song.
At that point, it was time to go all out.
Dressing Adam up in Slenderman garb, using a pillow case as a mask, we prepared two more notes.
One note was slipped under their door as a distraction so we would have Adam go stand outside the front entrance to our room, covering the peep hole with a sticker. We then added one more note, beckoning these girls to open their front door.
It opened.
Yes, we do have video.
Yes, it will be posted later.
Deciding we had done enough to these poor girls, we brought Adam around to the conjoined door and stood him outside of it and got them to answer the door, so they could see who was behind the antics.
Turns out it was five Homestucks.
Man, just my luck.
Now, if you aren't familiar with my history of this fandom, long story short...
1. Metal bucket to the head.
2. Horn in the ear.
3. Plan to break into a closed vendor's room, which was stopped short by an increase in security.

These girls came out to be some of the nicest people we'd met at the con all day. And it wasn't even at the con. Now, as I type this, we're all about ready to be asleep and we're probably gonna all go swimming and enjoy each other's company tomorrow morning.

Lastly, we went to the dance DJ'd by Greg Ayers. I love his sets. I always have. However, this is when I realized the convention's dance room was too small. 6-7 hoopers is fine in a room that isn't being dominated by a giant circle of shufflers.
That circle took up 1/4 of the room and left me with no hooping room, leaving me with no hoop time...sad face.
I did get to listen to one of my fave DJs, though. :)

I'll post important links and things in the morning. It's time to pass dah fooq out.
