I woke up a bit later than planned and started getting my luggage together. Apple and gang drove up around 12:30pm and we began to play a game of Tetris and Jenga to get my things in the car. Sat crosslegged for the whole hour ride. Unfolded myself when we got to the hotel and checked into my room (that wasn't without its issues, holy crap). Got unpacked and settled in, chilled in the hot tub for 30 minutes, showered, helped Velocity online with a cosplay issue and took a nap. Velocity arrived around 6:30pm and I helped her and Batou with their luggage. Then we took care of more room stuff, kicked back, then headed out around 8pm with Raine and Kya for dinner, where we were joined by Kitty, Batou and Knives. Stayed until about 10pm, met up with Pixie and Seifer while Raine and Kya unloaded their luggage and the four of us headed back to our room after getting their things to their room. Watched The Rising while we did cosplay workshop. Dicked around with that until about 2am, when Velocity and I were finally able to go to bed.
Got up around 8am and met up with Raine and Kya for badges. Ran to Caribou for breakfast with Velocity, went back to the room to get dressed. Sike came up to the room to store his things and get into suit. Barely made it in time to the Tiger & Bunny photoshoot I was running, where we revealed our Kotetsu and Barnaby cosplays (the secret ones we've been planning for almost 2 years). We had some creeper issues that made things awkward for Velocity and myself. Wondering where Raine was in her Kaede cosplay, we spent the last 10 minutes of the shoot shouting "KAEDE" through the halls of the con, only to find her at Chess sign in after we stopped. Due to so many people showing up to participate, we got put onto the same square, for which my position was King. And since I was the highest rank, I got to stay for the WHOLE game, where I died epically. While Kya and Velocity helped dismantle the board, we ran into Meika, who revealed her secret Sky High cosplay. We went outside shortly after to get photos, while being followed by some people from the shoot that saw we had new people with. Lost my badge and about had a meltdown. Found it with the help of friends and polite staff, quick hit the Artist Alley to show Snow and Brichibi our cosplays they'd been looking forward to, talked with the Mohrs, helped Meika with her luggage, then came back to the room to get my things for the swap meet while Velocity chilled for a bit. Lined up with and sat next to Commander. Stayed for about an hour, mind fucked at least 2 people (they didn't know it was me) and made some good loot. Packed up, chatted with Silver and then headed into the Hetalia panel, where they let me be a plant in the audience. Velocity showed up about 10 minutes in and I caught up with Hatake after the panel was over. We went back to our room, shared a quick drink and relaxed a bit while I changed into a different outfit for Kotetsu. Went to run my cosplay equality panel, where three panelists didn't show up, but about half the Tiger & Bunny shoot was in the audience XD After that I did a photoshoot for Raine and Meika in their Madoka cosplays. Went up to the room and tried to see what we could do for dinner, which ended up being a cosplay dinner date at Friday's. Went back to the room, drank a bit more then went to bed around 2:30am.
Woke up probably around 9am and dicked around in the room for a long time watching TV. Velocity woke up with the start of a migraine, so we were trying to keep stress and such to a minimum. We got into Namine and Roxas, then headed to the con floor around noon. Met up with Mako for a photoshoot and Meika, cosplaying Olette, found us just as we were wrapping up, so we got pics with her. Got pictures with a whole BUNCH of furries, which made my heart so happy. Perused the con for a bit and then we went to Subway for lunch. Velocity's migraine got worse, so we finished up there and headed back to the room, where I dressed a bit more comfortably and headed down to do a shoot with Ammy and chat with friends. 30 minutes later, I came back to a room nearly plunged in darkness. Velocity was feeling much worse and said it was light that was bothering her. Highly concerned, I turned out whatever light was left and gave her a back massage. Let her talk about anything she wanted (which ended up being emotional), then sat in silence until she felt better. We got into Canada and Ukraine, did a lap around the con, then found our way to Artist Alley. Made some purchases before Velocity started overheating, so we left. Chatted with friends in an autograph line, where I helped a fan with a cosplay emergency. After that, we took refuge in our room and didn't leave the rest of the night. We chilled out of cosplay for a bit and semi argued over what to do for dinner. She started making the ramen and we did some photoshoots around the room, one of them was trying to do a sexy time shoot. Key word: trying. The fanart we tried to recreate didn't work out due to unrealistic proportions, so we scrapped it. We drank a bit more while trying to find other pictures to recreate, but by the time we found the ones we liked, we were too far gone to even do the ones we'd planned before the con. Instead, we got about 2 hours of video, recording our drunken shenanigans. Somewhere during this, Velocity and I fell asleep on the floor with each other and sometime during the night she helped me get back to bed.
Woke up around 9am, confused as to how I got to bed. Took our sweet time getting ready, did some bathroom and crossover photoshoots, finished getting dressed in Kotetsu and Barnaby again and packed. At the last minute, Velocity decided she didn't want to go home so soon, so found someone to put her up for the night and take her home on Monday. So we rushed to get her things out to the van, then she helped me get my things to Apple's room (three of those trips were taken by stairs). We were about an hour late in checking out, but it all worked out in the end. We stood and chatted with Pirate and Rob, then went to the Dealer's Room with Batty and Nat. We got separated when we found Raine and Kya. I made one of the most selfish purchases I probably have in my whole life and I don't regret it for a second. After we left, I got a short but lovely backrub from Velocity and we got family photos taken with Raine before she had to go. Velocity and I perused the con for a bit, talked with the Mohrs again and met up with Meika for lunch. After that we sat and chatted with Prime, Silver and Meika. After closing ceremonies let out, we parted ways with our friends, had a bit of drama, grabbed Velocity's things from the room and said goodbye. I then headed over to Friday's for dinner with Apple and the gang. We talked about the highs and lows of the con, as well as other cons we'd gone to. Went back to the room, changed into swim wear and headed to the hot tub. I went back and forth between that and the pool. I had a stalking issue that just about tanked my whole night, but Apple was understanding and I was able to push through it. I had a relaxing shower, then we all curled up to watch Devil Is a Part Timer (after some issues working out the cables and remote). Drifted in and out of sleep while that played, then finally stayed asleep around 1am.
Woke up to voices around 10am. Took my time getting dressed and packed. He headed out and went to EP Mall to Apple could get her favorite popcorn. After that we went to Eye of Horus, where I got some crystals to help me cleanse and better read my tarot cards. Then we hit Popeye's for lunch. After all that I finally came home around 2pm, where I promptly fell asleep for about 5 hours.
