JOURNALAs usual, in English - for the benefit of the wider audience / Kuten aiemminkin, conijälkipyykki englanniksi, varmasti osaatte englantia siinä määrin että kykenette seuraamaan.
Finally got around making this journal though. The past week has been quite a bit of chaos.. but now the dust has started settling
. Here's a recap on the weekend's most memorable events.
So, I left for Desucon early Friday afternoon. After settling in to the hotel, unpacking, finding food, etcetc, it was finally off to the con. I had picked the gas mask outfit, which you can find from my profile via this link
, my skin issue had creeped up on me on Friday, and it turned out the gas mask tickles a lot
, way more than bearable.. so I kind of settled wearing a ski mask only instead of the epic tinted lens mask
. For your interest, apparenty some variant of atopia has decided to strike and flare up just recently. Haven't figured out the cause though..
Also, sleep deprivation from last night creeped up on me without warning.. so, I have to shamefully admit it, I actually fell asleep
during a lecture on utopias and dystopias. Lecturer and those sitting next to me, if you read this, I'm terribly sorry for that .
The beginning of the lecture was really interesting though, a well delineated and logical approach to the subtypes of these utopias and dystopias one can find
. I hope to see the lecture later on on YouTube
After that, plus realizing I don't find any remaining programmes on Friday interesting, I decided to call it a day and make my way back to the hotel
But then, an another disaster struck!
All food stores nearby apparently had closed at 11pm (I arrived to the hotel 5min before that), and for obvious reasons I did not bother doing grocery shopping while dressed up to the nines. It was enough thrill that a drunkard apparently got ticked and started cussing at me.. I hastened my walk a bit as response
. Luckily, pizzerias were still serving that late, and I got myself a mighty tasty kebab for a late-night 'dinner' of sorts.Cue Saturday morning.
Due to the skin issues yesterday, I decided that I shall use the outfit for Sunday also on Saturday
And it turned out to be a superb choice, no problems at all. Of particular note were the massive wind gusts which probably were the nightmare of those wearing wigs. I did not get bothered by them the slightest, except for the odd one out which was ridiculously strong to actually hinder me from walking forward too quickly.
After a fancy (free) breakfast at the hotel, off to the con again
Most of the day I spent doing various things, walking around, shooting a few pics.. playing Super Mario on an authentic SNES
.. watching lots of anime, hanging out.. and that's about it. Apparently I did not attend any lecture on Saturday
. I also bought Resident Evil 5
, so then I will qualify for an Umbrella Corp badge after playing it
, I did attend the lecture on solving cosplay problems in creative ways.. very inspiring, apparently there's a cosplay purpose for everything
Also, due to neglecting to check where
exactly the bus back home left from, had to walk 1km more with bags
why can't Onnibus leave from the bus station like everybody else. Still, got to the bus as intended
Despite all that, I came back in one piece, and had fun, which is the most important thing.
