Wow, it's been already one week since Tracon!
I actually was retouching photos and preparing this post but then something happened and I didn't feel like it anymore.. But now I was finally able to make this so here you go~
My trip to Tampere started already on Friday the 13th! :S
I took a train to Tampere and this time I had my little fella with me!
This was actually my first con trip from up here!
|Choco and yours truly~|
Our train trip was okay and when I arrived to Tampere I got a ride to my friend's place!
There I spent the evening waiting for others to arrive and so on~
We woke up "early" on Saturday morning and started to get into our costumes pretty soon~
Still we were at Tampere-talo near 12:00 :D

We saw some of our friends and decided to photoshoot our costumes~
Also here I could tell you guys a little story why we ended up using our old Magnet-costumes with Lily and why we didn't cosplay Panty and Stocking as planned!
Well, we were a little late with my wig for Stocking, but the seller promised in his description to ship the wig 1 day after receiving the payment.. So we paid for it right away and also sent a message hoping for a fast shipping!
It took one week for that person to reply to our message and that was the last drop for me!
I was sure that we wouldn't get it in time for Tracon so we changed our plans with Lily.. Also I didn't continue with our costumes because of this and only concentrated to my studies and other stuff..
Well guess what I received just couple of days before Tracon?
But I knew that there's no point starting to work with the costumes anymore (didn't want the stress, really) so we still sticked to our plan B.. Happily we will cosplay P&S in the future but there's no specific con decided yet ;)
But yeah, here's some photoshoot pics~

After our photoshoot we changed to normal clothing and spent the rest of the convention day looking like that~
I had planned to see lectures but as always my plan to go see those failed :D
I'll add another post about those photoshoots ;) But you can already see some photos at their blogs!
Ps. I had the best time photographing you guys, so thank you for asking me to be your photographer!!
I actually went to see the cosplay competitions on Saturday!
I was really happy to see that there was so many competitors in the WCS preliminaries and how the level of cosplay is so high! Here's just couple of photos I took..
|WCS preliminaries - She's actually one of the winner and part of the WCS Team Finland 2014, Hootti!|
|All the contestants that took part in the pro series!|
|And here's the winners of the pro series! Congrats to you all!|
From left to right:
2nd place Jesmo, 1st place Yumi and 3rd place Hansku!
I actually have some photos of our WCS Team Finland 2014, but as they cried a lot I don't feel like publishing any of those (you would thank me if you saw the photos :DD) But congrats to you and have a nice time in Japan!!
After the competitions it was time for me and Lily to head back to our friends apartment!
Sunday was really laid back day for me!
I can't remember the last time that I didn't put much make-up on or wear a wig at a convention :D
This time I was actually prepared for my night train that I would take!
When we got to Tampere-talo we just hanged with some friends and I waited for another photoshoot with the same people as the day before!
After the photoshoot I just waited for the clock to hit 2.30pm which was my cue to leave the con!
Why is that?
I actually got to assistant at one photoshoot that evening that would take my time from 15:00 to 21:00!
And it was with these guys!
|Yours truly is nicely photobombing while drinking from a bottle :D|
Also stole this photo from her!
But yeah, that was pretty much how my Tracon went!
Next con that I will attend may be one Chibicon that is held at Oulu.. But I haven't decided yet if I'll go or not ;) We'll see~
Ps. Had really lovely time sleeping in the train that night = almost didn't sleep at all and my train was at Rovaniemi around 8:00.. And my lecture at my university started around 9:00 :D fun times, but next time I'll be a lot more wiser and not to come by night train!
