I've had a day to recover and now it's time to write my ...writeup!Biggest success:
All six of my prints sold! Some of them even got bidded up beyond the initial price! All together they summed to $540 - not really that much when you deduct costs and time consumed considering I am a WORKING PROFESSIONAL, but I'm just glad to have made a profit (and not have to take any of them home) at all :)Biggest regret:
I had no idea that there were organized photoshoot meetups for specific series at con now, so I had no room in my schedule to make it to the Avatar group shoot (or the Smash Bros or Legend of Zelda shoots (Edit: especially since this happened
), for that matter). ctrl_a
got pics of it which I shall be awaiting, but I really wish I could've been there. NEXT TIME!Biggest triumph:
My crazily rushed waterskin
held together completely reliably, and was a super handy stuff-carrying bag to boot! Overall my entire costume (even hair loopies) stayed intact over 12+ hours better than any cosplay I've ever done. It probably helps that it was the most normal and sensible "fashion" out of all my previous options... :PBiggest ...socialization... accomplishment:
I never really cared about the 3DS Streetpass feature (especially since it's not even really my
3DS, but Kevin's), but I knew that it would be now or never to use it. After 1.5 days at con it went from 0 to over 100 Streetpass hits and all puzzle pieces completed. I still don't care about it, but it'll never see that kind of traffic again! ...Until next con.
And of course, the photos are what you're here to see. There were a LOT of cosplayers this year, and a LOT of them were great quality. Instead of taking pictures of every decent costume like I used to do, this time I just threw my hands up and got only pictures of costumes that particularly tickled my fancy. (As you might expect, most of them were video game-related.)( Da pics )
Next up, E3 in 6 days...!
