Bakacon 2011

Last weekend I attended to this cosplay event at Pieksämäki, that is called Bakacon, and it was my first convention this year! :)
I made huge changes to my cosplay list, I didn't so Gumi or Sheryl, I did just one cosplay and it was this:
Cloche Leythal Pastalia (Ar Tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica) Yukata/Summer Love-version.

I didn't do her fan, 'cause I didn't have time :( I painted that pattern that she has in her yukata by hand and it tooked more time than I thought :( But back to the topic! :)

I didn't take much photos of the convention (except some photoshoot photos), but I'll try to tell as much as I can by words :)

Saturday:
I went to Pieksämäki already at Friday (I drove and there was also Lirlys, Aidu and ninnu-chan with me, we danced macarena while driving at Pieksämäki, yes, I did dance a little too xD I wonder how we got there safely xD) and slept that night at a gym.. I the first night was okay, I slept quite well, but it was cold, so that wasn't so nice :( Also the fact that you couldn't cover the windows of the gym at all didn't please me, I woke up around 6am because of that :(
Also I hated that toilet they had in the girls dressing room. It was filthy and smelled like piss, I had to hold my breath there, ugh. Awful.
But here's some pictures from saturday morning:
It's Aidu behind the camera and yes, ninnu-chan is gluing those stings(?) to her leg :D 
And here's me, haha D:

Then we went to the place where Bakacon was held, and it was Kulttuurikeskus Poleeni. It was in the middle of Pieksämäki, so stores and other places were near :) I didn't like the indoors that much, it was kinda small place.. But I did like the outdoors :) It had lots of space and there was this beautiful lake near :)
I was with ninnu-chan at the morning and we went to see a panel about crossplay, I did gain a lot of information, so now I can help my friend to improve as crossplayer and maybe use some tricks myself (I'm supposed to crossplay Calude from Kuroshitsuji at Animecon this summer :S).. But after that panel we finally found Lineartt and Mollamaija (we went to Meuwcon with them so we kinda had a reunion at Bakacon :D) 
Whole group, from left to right: Mollamaija, me, ninnu-chan and Lineartt :)
We are so beautiful~

The rest of the Saturday went hanging out with them, we listened to music and tooked some pictures, here's some of me:


yes, the water was cold at first, but I got used to it pretty quickly :D
(pictures are taken by ninnu-chan)

We also went to this party that was held, but I didn't take any pictures there and we were there only 1,5 hours, so.. Nothing much to say about that party :) I liked some songs and the organizers had really putted effort to it :) So credits of it to them :)

Sunday:
I didn't cosplay on sunday, I was too tired (I woke up at night when some guy coughed and it just didn't stop! -___-)
But I did attend to this panel about props that was held by Elffi. The panel was great, I got to know about lots of things that I didn't know before but why in the hell it was held in that small room?!?!?!? I don't understand the organizers in this :( But hopefully he'll do another panel to some other convention, if he does, I'm so gonna be there to listen again, every tip about making props is welcome :D

We also went to see a panel about make-ups.. Well, I liked the atmosphere but I didn't really learn anything new.. It was good for people that are beginners at doing make-ups, but.. I watch a lot of tutorials and also do different make-ups at home when I'm bored (to train myself! :D) so.. I know stuff allready and did hope for some new tips.. And if only they had shown more about how to fasten a beard, but.. yeah.. They could have shown less of their own tutorials (everyone can go youtube and watch those then, they could have given some addresses to their accounts or something) and talked about the facts of doing scars etc. more.. Maybe next time? Hopefully..

That's pretty much all of it!
But I have to say that the level of finnish cosplay has improved. I was really amazed of the fact that so many cosplays were so good :)

And btw, next Bakacon is going to be held in 2013, so you have to wait for the next one :(

And here's a post (in finnish) about Bakacon. Watch that viddie, you'll see me in it xD And in the another viddie I'm filming it and you can hear me speaking, wow? x'D
Another posts about Bakacon can be found from here (in finnish):
