RECAP on Desucon Frostbite 2015

Well, I'm back from the con (actually, came back yesterday ;)). And there's a plenty to tell. Here's a story from my POV.

After somehow managing to cope with the luggage crisis of mine (it turned out I could only BARELY fit everything I need into the only large carrying thingies I own - and even then I had things dangling from both of them XD), and a few other challenges like lugging items to the place of residence, I set off towards the con. Luckily it was not far away, but it was still somewhat of a challenge, as I will detail soon ;)

On Friday and Saturday, I cosplayed as your friendly neighborhood chemical waste cleaner, with an appropriately colored rubber suit and a gas mask, plus a tactical vest. Whileas a certainly neat costume, it was by no means the easiest. Several problems were encountered:

1) DARN COVERALL LEGS! It is a minor miracle I never tripped to those, as they kept constantly drooping down no matter how I attempted to strap them up - and hindered my gait quite noticeably.

2) Sweat. As you may have guessed, the amount of sweat was very remarkable, as proven by the amount of surface covered with sweat in undercoverall, when I undressed in the evening. The water points available all over the con were absolutely vital, even though I did carry a small canteen bottle.

3) Heaviness. I did not expect that the vest would be so heavy that it was.. in retrospect I should have realized that, carrying a DSLR and a flash plus air blower and the whole nine yards.. and it in practice resulted in me getting tired somewhat quicker than usual - and in a very healthy appetite when I went to eat meatballs in Restaurant Lastu, conveniently placed inside the convention center :)

Sunday was way less eventful, with me being dressed as an unremarkable civilian (remember, luggage crisis and last day!). I did most shopping this day, and also got to enjoy the foods of Lastu again. After the con, I set off to the bus station, and arrived back home late in the evening :D.

Despite those issues, did I have fun? YES, I indeed did have fun! :D I watched anime, visited a few programmes (or attempted to, the physics programme was filled so full I could not even get in via the door), and had fun with friends and other congoers (btw, renegade-stalkan - I attempted to find you, but did not find you. :noes:) :D. And, of course, did some shopping of anime and plushie kind ^^

A lesson was learned though: Pay attention to the proportionality of parts' weights. I may pick something more light next time.. but what? :confused:


Being processed. Due to the large amount of them (both taken by me, and by the fantastic photo service), consolidating them is going to take a while. And they will first get posted to Flickr, due to its better automation. I'll keep you posted ;)

Available on Flickr! Click here! Working on dA, I'll post them up as soon as possible.


Times I received comments about sweat/heat/etc: 7
"You guys are SO WEIRD!" (out of a passing car): 1

Total time spent wearing the rubber coverall: ~6h + ~10h = ~16h
.. part of that w/ a gas mask on, air blower powered and hood pulled up: <10%

Test Shots: Intel and Cuff Links
Having a vacation, and was bored again. Also, since I've moved out on my own, I hadn't yet researched the lighting properties my flat has, so I did some shooting to find that out. This is one of the byproducts. My laptop also makes its first appearance as a partner in cosplay/costumery.

Also, turned out I own several pairs of handcuffs :meow:

Nachos w/ meat, salsa, cheddar, and onion rings
Cooked this up on Friday.

Basically, it contains ground meats (cow and pig), nacho chips, spicy salsa (El Paso Chunky Salsa Medium, to be precise), onion rings, and pieces of cheddar moderately melted.

A portrait of me. With the full outfit or so, just standing and gawking around :)

This photo was taken with the kind assistance of the photo service working in Desucon. A superb and easy way to get a professionally taken photo of your outfit, and with absolutely no charges :D

This particular one was taken by Kyuu Eturautti

Desucon Frostbite 2015 - A Meal On Sunday
You know, a fully fed congoer is a happy congoer :D
On Sunday, I ate broiler in chili sauce, rice, and ratatouille. Very satisfying, never been let down by foods offered during any Desucon I've been to. That was of particular importance on Saturday, when they served meatballs. I proceeded to eat quite a bit of them (did I mention both days lunch was served as a buffet?), as my energy consumption had risen quite a bit due to rather obvious reasons ;)

Animecon is just 'round the corner. I need ---? [comment with more detail if needed]

Hiya Orwy. How are you? :D
OrwellianStuff Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Not shabby, you? :D
NickKartha Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm actually a bit shabby.

I feel so mediocre in my academic work. It feels like I forget things as soon as I learn them.

I'm highly unmotivated and lazy and I just don't know how to keep myself on track.
But I am trying, quite unsuccessfully, any tips?
OrwellianStuff Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Same has happened to me countless of times.. I'd say you need to do exercises until you remember at least the core principles, and can derive the rest on the fly :nod: or at least convince the examiner that you know it ;)
As of track keeping, I've worked out a weekly rhythm that is not unduly taxing, yet still enables me to do work in great amounts :nod: have you looked at your scheduling.

Motivation is a challenge to everybody, also to me :pat: don't feel too bad.
