My trip starting on Friday, I showered, ate yummies, packed and got into my Wistful Wolf character. I managed to get all my clothes and such into a regular duffel bag, since nothing I was going to be wearing was super layered, complicated or bulky. Not that it was easier to carry, but it took up less space in the car and the hotel. Mouse drove me to the hotel, all the while asking me questions about the con because she's never heard/seen stuff like this before. She had the pleasure of seeing a couple suits right outside the hotel as she was dropping me off. Dragging everything by myself to the room, which was on the whole OTHER side of the hotel, I was greeted by Fox, who ran into me in the hallway. While I settled into the room, I met Folf and Okami, with Red coming in a bit later. I was happy to have everyone pay their share in a timely manner so I was relieved that I didn't have to hound anyone. Sike came in shortly after and we went to peace tie my weapon and get a room issue taken care of at the front desk. From there, Fox and I went to MoA, since he hadn't been there in over a decade and I had errands to run there anyway. We dicked around for a while, went to the face painting booth (I got an orca on my hand because Makoto), did some shopping and ate before trying to find our way back. During the mall time, the belt holding my tail in place broke and I was NOT happy. We finished a bit of food in the room before Fox thought it would be fun to paint my face. We went around the con to get a better layout of the place and hung out by the bonfire for some fresh air. We came back to the room, washed up, had a shot of pie, then went to bed.
I barely got any sleep, as the bed felt a bit cramped and the mattress was very uncomfortable. Right before 8am, someone in the next room was pounding. They had been doing this the day prior, as well as well after midnight that night. The running joke was that they couldn't last long in bed, due to the pounding happening two or three times, then stopping for a long period of time before starting again. Red finally got pissed and went to tell them off. Turns out the person didn't finish his costume in time and was making armor in his room. We never heard a peep the rest of the weekend. I started slowly motivating into Ashira and made my way to the Warriors panel. Was late, but stuck it through to the end and loved it. Chatted with some of the people in the audience before heading back to my room and stripping out of some of my clothes just to take a breather. Dicked around online, ate a little food, then got back into my cosplay and headed down with Fox and Folf to watch the parade. We then went around the DR for a bit and there I found Mr. Mohr and got a special video of him for my girlfriend. I looked around for a bit and bought a small con button for my bag. Upon mentioning to Fox that I was hungry, a cute cat girl told us the consuite had hot dogs and nachos, so she lead us to the food and we sat and chatted with Red and Folf while we ate. After some time, Fox and I went back to the mall to do some things we didn't/couldn't do the day before. I started getting a bit bitchy due to various reasons, so we went back to the con and hit the pool. After trying to plan with Okami how to do the rest of the night, we went to the hot tub, went back to the room, ordered pizza and started playing Cards Against Humanity. After some time, a couple of us headed down to the Howl, I walked back with Sike to do a couple things and then came back to the room. Started to drink with some of them while we played and ate. Right around one of the roommates starting to suffer from con drama was when the game winded down and we quit early. I packed a couple of my bags and attempted sleep.
Sleep was the same as the night before: non-existent. But I just rolled with it. Helped Sike, Folf and Okami get things into their car and Red had packed up and left by the time I came back. I just relaxed for a bit while I waited for Fox to fully wake up. Then I went between getting into my Casual Cat character and packing the rest of my things, all while checking over the room to make sure everything was in place and nothing was left behind that didn't need to be. We hit the DR again after I checked us out and I started spending my money willy nilly now that I knew I could afford it. Shortly thereafter, we left the con with Keero and another fur, Fox brought me home and I passed out without unpacking.
