And I'm back from Animecon 2015 (11-12.7) in Kuopio :D It was a pretty enjoyable con indeed, with many many intriguing random events (from my viewpoint). If this sounds exciting, do read down. If not, then you may as well skip to the bottom for technical information, or point your gaze to something else entirely.

I shall present you a concise and abridged version of my journey to Animecon :D

Saturday

On  Saturday, I had dressed into the outfit I've mentioned in my previous journal. And, at last, I got to see :iconheartshackles: (Heartshackles), who did this time manage to identify me :XD:, as I had not again made a surprise change of costume :dummy:. I also had done my intelligence properly, so I was even able to guess correctly who I was precisely looking for in terms of appearance :D Nice that we were able to see each other! :la:

I also paid a visit to a local Japanese restaurant, and enjoyed pretty good sushi, plus had a try at the chocolate fountain (yes - molten chocolate gushing from a small fountain). A tad expensive, but I'd say it is worth it, since the price included well more than buffets usually include in my experience - and quality was really good.

As of other things, I snapped a few photos, and simply wandered all over the con. Also watched the cosplay contest, which was pretty nice with really good outfits :D

Oh, and also bought the traditional Ramune bottle I usually buy during each con. :aww:

Sunday

Saturday passed and Sunday arrived.

The most interesting thing of the day happened as a random event indeed. I was doing particularly nothing in a hallway, when I was suddenly approaches, and asked to join the Manga Quiz programme, as apparently they were one contestant short. Why not, even though I openly admitted that I have about as much knowledge about manga minutiae as a gorilla likely would have about logarithms, if you went and asked one :meow:.

Well, against all odds. I won :wow:. Thanks to the kinks of the tiered scoring system, my very knowledgeable partner (who got the 2nd prize), and sheer, Gladstone Gander-level of luck in terms of questions :XD:, I was victorious.

Truth to be admitted though, most questions were really tricky. Getting names of the voice actors and mangakas correct proved to be a challenging task for everybody - while guessing the name of series and characters less so. As my personal opinion, the idea was definitely good, but the skill level does need refining :nod: and so does the scoring. As a fan of technology, maybe one could rig a program with those BUZZ!-style controllers and a multiple-choice answering thingamajig :confused:, and scoring per person.. or if not that, still revise the difficulty level to be less challenging :D. OR :iconteheplz:, maybe, if someone is going on a streak, have the game automatically give him or her more challenging questions :evillaugh: no, I'm not an evil game developer or anything.

Anyway, back to where we were. I walked out with a very nice grand prize: a cat-themed bag, filled with a bottle of Ramune, some unidentified mystery mini-soda I have not yet tried at the time of writing this journal. Plus, an Animecon trinket which I presume was handcrafted from leather :la:. To complement these fine Japanese delicacies, I bought a bag of candy called 'Chururun' - candies which are small plastic cups filled with delicious jelly. To eat one, you peel off the cover, and squeeze the cup to push the jelly right into your mouth :D. 10/10 would buy again, if it were not so ridiculously expensive, 8 euros a bag >.< ...

End result

Content :D Despite some setbacks, like the ghost house having a queue that never got shorter (before closing, that is), and unfortunately missing the AMV contest due to arriving late and getting turned away due to seats being filled, I had fun :) Hopefully others also did.

PHOTOS?!?!?!?

Hi! :D

Now that I got your attention - did you know I'll be attending Animecon 15 in Kuopio?
If you are going to be there, good - come say hi :eager: If not, pity.

This is a good identifying picture: Animecon 2015 - Summer Outfit by OrwellianStuff
If you see someone like that, it's very probably me ;)

Okey, for the record, I will probably attempt to look like this in Animecon 2015 in Kuopio. A bit more summer-y maybe :D
Yet no utility was sacrificed, with pants containing enough pockets for all possible needs ;)

Desucon 2015 - OrwellianStuff - Ex Tempore Outfit by OrwellianStuff
Desucon 2015 - OrwellianStuff - Ex Tempore Outfit
Well, my face skin apparently got pretty sensitive and tickly on Friday (a part of my skin issue saga, I'd assume), so wearing a gas mask was
out of question due to the excess uncomfort. I did not want to risk the same on Saturday :D so, I decided to use the Sunday outfit also on Saturday.
As of how this outift was planned, it was decided by a single late-night session of digging through my prop box and periodically modeling
to myself in front of a mirror ^^. Turned out very practical, as apparently wind gusts had decided to descend on Lahti right on the weekend.. ;)

Nice hat choices for a con indeed XD
Pyro's got a Max's Severed Head, and Soldier wears a fancy Magical Mercenary
Very nice cosplays! :D
