Running on between 2 - 4 hours of sleep, I woke up early to shower and get my hair styled for Aerith. Then we got on the road before the sun was barely up. We made it to the con around 10 and got in line. After perusing the con, hanging with some friends and constantly getting stopped for pics, my roommate for the hotel, Marin, contacted me and we brought my things over to the room and I met the others in the group. Went back to the con, attended the Square Enix shoot, hung out with Lanna, Sylus, Seifer and Songstress. Made some new friends and fans as I went to panels, shoots and video rooms. Had dinner with a large group from the Square shoot, then started hanging with Kitty. As I was waiting for her to change outfits, I noticed my camera was gone. I returned to the con and went to the Bridge, hoping they would have it. No such luck, so I tried not to think about it, telling myself it was still early, that it would be found before I went home. After telling some friends about it, someone had gathered a team of no less than 10 people to look for my camera. Once meeting up with my roommates and informing them of the situation, they also combed the area for it. So me and my team of 5 went to EVERY hotel that was housing con goers, asking the front desk if any cameras had been turned in. This happened at 4 in the morning, ending once we hit the last hotel in the area: mine. Discussed things with my roommates once getting in my PJs and then went to bed.
Once again, sleep didn't come easily, so I was very tired when I got into Kurama. Roommates loved the cosplay, so they took some pictures before I left for the con. Sore from all the walking the day before, in a bad mood from the lost/stolen camera and still not awake, I got my first glomp as soon as I walked through the doors. Trying to quell my growing temper, I merely lectured her about glomping/touching without asking. She calmed down her excitement and began talking to me and following me around. She then saw Sylus walk up to me, in full Hiei cosplay, and got excited all over again. While she went back to her room to get into a makeshift Yukina cosplay so she could get pics with us, we went to our photoshoot, where 3 Botans were waiting for us. We got some pics, then went around the DR with our new Yukina. After a while, I went back with Sylus for a quick shoot and so she could change into Reno. In the early evening, I began having breathing problems because my binding had moved into a bad position. Kitty knew the look on my face and ran me to her room. She had me strip out of everything but my underwear and rest in her bed while she kept an eye on me. I ended up passing out until the rave started, where I danced around in full cosplay with a group of con family and friends. Went to bed early for the night after seeing how people were retaliating to having only one rave and didn't want to get caught in the middle of it.
Sleep was a lot easier to obtain, so getting into Sango and packing up my things was not an issue. My roommates were even really nice to keep my things in their car so I didn't have to look all over con right away for Phantom. Things were pretty slow as I hung out with Sylus most of the time and we were both beat. Mostly just going through the DR and fawning over merch before we had to go home.
