A-a-a-anime A-Animecon IX

Well, hello to you all!
It's been 4 days since Animecon and all I can think is "wow, 4 days already! It feels like I just left Kuopio!"
As you might remember my costume plans from my last post I gotta say that no, I couldn't make it.. :/ And now that I'm moving out of this house of ours into my own apartment I don't have time to continue with Erica, so we'll see her sometime somewhere in the future! :)

So who did I cosplay?
Well, my character this time was White from Pokémon Black and White!

So, let's start of my journey to Animecon~
My journey actually started on Friday morning, I packed my car, left to work and from there I went to pick up a friend and with her we went to Lily's place to get all the others and then we drove to Kuopio! The drive wasn't that long, though a car crash on the road 5 made it way longer :/ But yeah, we dropped Yumi off to Kuopio and rest of us went to Rauhalahti, Lily and her brother had a cabin and I had a tent that I shared with Ninnu :)

The night was pretty okay, it was just really cold at one point and really wet.. :/ But we managed! :D
On Saturday morning we got up early and were able to left to Musiikkitalo (that's the place where they held the convention!) around 10:00 :)

I actually didn't do much, I was just hanging around with friends and talking with those 'till it was time for the cosplay competition which we went to see :)
I actually liked it, 'though I started to feel a little "sick" at the end of it, I guess we ran out of oxygen or something xD But yeah, I liked how people got to use all those special effects if they wanted, it made it more cool, I think :D I'll also add photos to my photography blog of the competition when I can, I've been super busy with my move!

But after the competition we ate and then it was time for me to go and take some photos of ppl! :)
I had planned 2 photoshoots for Saturday, but I ended up having 4 :') Though one was a really short one, but still :)

And I actually doesn't have any photos of my shoot with Ziromaru, because we used his memory card and I'm still waiting to get those :'D So I had to download these from his deviantART for you to see :)

But let's get to the point, here's just some of the photos that I've taken, more you can see at my photography blog! :)

Sori Okita (Code of the Samurai)
Cosplayer: Ziromaru

Kanade Amou (Senki Zessho Symphogear)
Cosplayer: Dashiana

Elizabeth "Liz" Thompson & Death the Kid (Soul Eater)

Allen Walker & Lenalee Lee (D.Gray-Man)
Cosplayers: yaci-chan & TINNERI

There's actually more photos from this D.Gray-Man photoshoot here!

After my last photoshoot I went to change clothes and we went to check out the evening party, it was okay, but we left pretty early and went to eat, after that it was time for us to go back to Rauhalahti and we made some last things for Sunday ready and went to sleep!

Sunday was a cosplay free day for me..
I normally don't like to wear same costume two days in a row and I didn't have other costumes with me, so I ended up doing this :) Maybe you saw me? ;)

And I hadn't planned any photoshoot for Sunday, but I ended up taking some photos of Ziromaru and of this one Final Fantasy X-group! Otherwise my Sunday was just a plain normal and I didn't even go take part into any program :')

Kagami Taiga (Kuroko no Basuke)
Cosplayer: Ziromaru

Rikku, Wakka, Tidus & Yuna (Final Fantasy X)

And you can see more from this photoshoot here! They also had Lulu and Auron cosplayers with them ;)

And when it came 16:00 it was time for me and my small crew to leave Kuopio and head home~ I dropped everyone off and I was at home around 21:00 feeling tired and happy~

I can't wait 'till next convention (which is just in 7 days!! And it's Närcon @ Linköping, Sweden!)~ :)

It's good to end this post here with a group shot of me with these awesome people!
It's a shame that it's missing some of the most awesomest, but still~ :)
