My weekend started on Wednesday after work, where I was picked by Nexus. We had dinner and cosplay workshop before heading to bed for the night. We had to run some errands Thursday when she came back from school and I changed into Poland. We got the to hotel a bit later than planned and my back was screaming at me. Due to Velocity not being done with her cosplay and my back hurting like crazy, we decided to put off the PoLeit shoot until later in the weekend if we had time. So we got into our swim gear and, after a whole lot of back and forth due to hotel roomies needing help, enjoyed the hot tub. Then we changed and went out for the annual pre-Detour dinner, where we started with 8 people with 4 more coming in shortly before some of us were leaving. Went to bed around 3 after having a shower.
Got a bit of a late start because it was so hard for me to wake up. Headed out with Velocity to get our badges and grab some pizza for breakfast. While I got into my Leon cosplay, she curled up on my bed and tried to ward off a migraine, which was hard because there was like 10 people in the room, all trying to get into cosplay. Eventually, she left to her much quieter room to try to feel better and potentially work on cosplay while I headed off for Chess sign in. Just as the teams were lining up, Velocity and Eve came in, where I handed off my camera and got a good luck kiss. I was killed about a third of the way through the game and was treated to a back rub while I tried to film the rest of the game. Between sitting on the floor in the Chess room and trying to get to Sike's furry panel, I lost my phone. I found Taiyouko along the way and she helped me locate it and get it back. Between then and the time I changed into mpreg!Canada was just running around trying to find or avoid random people. I was going to do karaoke, but they didn't have what I wanted to sing, so Velocity and I went on a date instead. Got back to the con and managed to get some cute pics together before feeling tired enough to call it a night.
Got up, showered and dressed in Toboe. Ran some errands and wasted some time before Mock Combat. During this time, not only did Chris Ayers, who was running the panel, use Velocity for demonstration, but she missed a call from her mother saying her sister was having her baby. After Mock Combat, we went to our own rooms to change into wedding!Canada and Ukraine. Once we got on the con floor, it was a symphony of 'awwwwww's and 'so cute's. A small child actually was overheard asking her parents if we just got married. After a horrible experience with the group running the Hetalia shoot, there was too much anxiety and frustration passing between Velocity and I, so we canceled the big date we planned at MoA. So we improvised with a small shoot outside, one in her room involving feeding each other cake and laying on the floor snuggling and chatting while we calmed down, and smaller shoots by random people on the con floor. We finally hit 'fuck this shit' mode and went to my room to undress and relax. Had a quick, hot shower (as was advised by Ayers due to lots of muscle use during the panel) and we both laid on each other while watching the Competition on TV. We slowly changed into Poland and Lithuania and zombied around the con floor after getting out of a panel. Spent some time with Teny and Sun and a couple others before making a food run. We ate in Velocity's room while watching Adult Swim, then went back to my room. Since Nexus was in the process of packing up and getting her things outside, I thought I'd do the same while Velocity took a nap. We were able to get in our sexy PoLeit shoot, but it wasn't really what I think we were hoping for, partially due to having to find a new photographer that ended up being a stranger to Velocity, so some photos we'd planned for were too awkward for us to do in front of someone she didn't know. After we finished, we went out for some fresh air and then I walked her back to her room. I walked around for a bit longer, but I was surprised at the lack of activity for a Saturday night, so I went to bed sooner than I thought.
Ignored my alarm and slept in another hour, showered and got into Toboe. After getting the rest of our things out to the van, I meandered for a while before meeting up with Velocity and made our first and only shopping trip through the DR and AA. I found some high school friends, who I chatted with for a bit while Velocity continued to browse the tables. We pre-regged for next year's con and then made a food run to DQ, which we ate in her room. We had some miscommunication on where to meet for our final shoot for the weekend, but we managed to get in pics of Toboe and Kiba before I had to leave.
