Despite some minor health issues, the con was much more enjoyable than last year (Murphy loved me >.<), and I had a lot of fun.

On Friday morning, Vlad and I set off towards Kassel (after a false start when I noticed I forgot my con ticket XD) and we arrived in record time. Leipzig-Kassel in 2.5 hours? We estimated more like 3.5! Our old Daimler-Benz bus come camping mobile did well~



My Friday costume was Son Goku from Saiyuki, Cowjama Artwork version. Nobody recognised me, but everyone loved the fluffy cow!^^

Since Vlad forgot his phone, we lost each other pretty soon and I spent most of the day careening around with Gwendal, who totally saved my sanity both Friday and Saturday.

The Saiyuki group I had planned to meet up with and take pictures, I saw only for a scant few minutes, when everyone was running inside from a sudden rainstorm and, since they were completely soaked, they went back to their hotel.
But at least later in the evening I ambushed what turned out to be their new Sanzo for some badly lit but extremely fun pictures.

Later, Gwen dragged me to watch the Anime-Japan-Otaku-Quiz, which was incredibly amusing. After that, around midnight, I was reunited with Vlad and we fell into 'bed' to sleep like the dead...or at least he did. I caught about 5 interrupted hours.

On Saturday, I left the car in my pyjamas to go to the washroom and noticed...friends had parked right behind us. Maron and Tala (as Ciel and Sebastian) had put in a lot of effort into their Kuroshitsuji meetup and had set a whole table (including good china, tablecloth, candles and cake) in the park next to the con building. It looked awesome! I offered to take care of brewing the tea in the car's kitchen, since it was closer than the next power outlet inside. I got some really yummy cake out of it later!

On my agenda for the day was an autograph by You Higuri and my lovely little 07Ghost group, if you can call three people that.

Asu as Hakuren, Risu as Teito, and me...as cute, pink Mikage-burupya. Just for the record, I hate pink and made this mainly to shock the others, who firmly believed I wouldn't do it.

Since I wasn't feeling too well and one of the wing supports had come loose on the inside of my costume and was scratching up my back, I left my group after maybe two hours of photos and changed into black pants and a white button-down shirt, a kind of pseudo-normal!Mikage and spent another while taking pictures of my friend Mitsu (as Izaya from Durarara!). She's a very cute person, but once or twice during this, she almost managed to scare me. Much too in character!XD

By nightfall, I felt even worse, two nights of bad sleep and one day without much food (was too wired to sleep OR eat) catching up with me, my back and neck muscled pretty much giving up on me because of the walking, standing around all day with wings on my back. The friends I was with though I'd keel over, so I napped in the car for about two hours and then Gwendal took me to the sauna - for free! By then I could think again and the heat probably saved my back (and thus my sunday). Not to mention I really needed a shower by then XD

Sunday I was mostly back to health and good spirit, and ready for my last cosplay group,this time together with my Vlad, the highlight of the convention: Seven Deadly Sins. The designs for the female Sins are based on artwork by Blackeri on Deviantart, the outfits for the male Sins we designed ourselves.

I was the male Vanity, here with my female counterpart St3rn1.
