Hey everybody I just got back from Otakon. Here is a brief summary of everything that happened!
On Thursday I headed to my friends house because he lives just outside of the convention area. Unfortunately, it was this day that I learned friends really bad at planning and preparing. Despite all my warnings they did not arrive to pick up badges until 9PM. Because of this we did not end up getting badges and instead had to get them the day after.
Friday was the first full day of the Convention and I went as Jake English from Homestuck. The costume was rather rushed on my end but that was because of three broken printers. However, according to most people who had seen it, they thought I did a pretty good job.
I ended up buying a Japanese Ocarina of Time cartridge version 1.1, and I am hella stoked about that. I also got to meet a fellow Link’s Awakening speedrunner! At the end of the day I got to hang out with Jane, who was cosplaying Roxy. We got a few pictures so please look forward to it!
Saturday was a very long day for me and by the end of it I was extremely tired. In a hilarious turn of events, I got hit in the face with a volleyball whilst half asleep. You know which anime I can blame for that one. ;) I spent a lot of the evening portions with Lacey as well as Suzanne.
Sunday was brief but I did get running into Molly, a really good friend of mine. I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to run into her this convention. However, fate had it that we did see each other in a very unexpected area: outside the convention center.
I really am grateful for my friends, and I love all of you.
