It went uhh. It was maybe one of my least fav con experiences. There wasn't much interesting stuff to me in the shops. Seemed like there was less anime and game stuff in comparison to western comics. They didn't even have 1 music or doujin section. And worse of all? I found out my wig does physical damage to me if I wear it too long. Namely the hair net. It put so much squeezing pressure on my head that I had a constant headache for the entirty I was there. But when I took it off I felt better. Until I woke up. And felt pain and welts where the hair net lining was on the top of my forehead. AND RED MARKS. Holy shit... I just was not prepared for this.

But On the flip side. A few people, maybe 4 or 5 if even, asked for my pic or complimented me. Wouldn't be surprised if they didn't all know who I was cosplaying. I also bought a replica sword of Vergil's Yamato from Devil May Cry. Got a female Inkling Splatoon plush and I also got the Darkstalkers OVA collection. Prices at these cons can be ridiculous so I didn't buy as much as I could. Not that there was much I wanted.

Me and my friend didn't stay long. I'm hoping the next time I go to another I enjoy it more. In the meantime it would be nice if by a miracle I found even ONE picture someone took of me. For now all I have is my own pictures

That sucks man, sorry the expo wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Wonder if there was some chemical residue in the hair net, maybe something that could've been soaked out, but still, foreign fibers can't change what they are.
Who knows, maybe do a reverse image search (of your posted pic) in a few days, might get lucky. Hm, maybe carrying a small clear plastic purse with the game's boxart on view, maybe more ppl would've figured your outfit out... hell, anytime I went to Picoday, I always wore a lanyard w/ my user pic on it, easy way to explain an old fart at such an event.

Nah man it was just the pressure of the net. It was tight but I didn't think it seemed THAT tight until after an hour then I was like "Wait a minute ow?"

Glad you're curbing your collecting fetish, no need to go full auto when 1 or 2 will do. Is there anything you're looking forward to attending to this year?

Still hoping we have a NG theater premiere this October, always wanted to snap celebs in front of a promotional background in front of a theater... figure if it happens, I'll buy some thin astroturf, get some aluminum stands, snag some of Tom's NG stickers, and play paparazzi. Granted it'll likely be an ill dressed sausage party, buut beggars can't be choosy
