So last weekend we got back from Alcon buzzing.
Alcon is held at De Montfort University in Leicester, so it's quite a trek for us. Regardless, it was amazing. Our Alcon group consisted of:
- Luca Souen - Vampire Knight (Me - Becky)
- Yuki Cross - Vampire Knight (Anna)
- Soi Fon - Bleach. (Charlotte)
Pulled up to Anna's fully dressed, hair held back ready for my wig XD Must have looked a little strange for whoever spotted me (My parents are now used to it). Charl was already there, dressed from head to toe in black, and Anna was busy getting her wig on and wig-justing. Then it was soon time to go.
When we reached the Uni we did our usual 'SPOT THE FIRST COSPLAYER!' This officially starts the con. Firstly we spotted Air Gear, and did our usual STFC squee. But then we saw an Axel and a Roxas (They were holding hands) and regardless of the driver and her companion we screamed. (Best start to a con ever).
Of course we got lost and had to be lead to the front desk by a bloke who worked there... but ah well. We got our wrist bands, squealing when we got our Alcon goodie-bags. Then we were off to the main building, pouring over the work in artists-alley, making some great friends and meeting some amazing people.
Artists Alley -
- Dressed adorable. Got some amazing posters!
- Sailor Moon. I got a gorgeous Sailor Moon print!
- Also dressed adorable. I bought the cutest little prints off of her.
We had a talk with Caitlin Glass - Voice of Haruhi in Ouran, Princess Vivi in Once Piece and Deneva in Claymore (sadly didn't get her signature). We then left to catch a wig tutorial with none other than and Of course we were a little confused throughout, having watched them both on Youtube and then having them standing in front of you talking. Afterwards we escaped the room and waited to speak to Twin. I'd gotten in contact with him about Anna's birthday, and so I had what I was going to say planned out. Of course it came out in a bloody mess... so that was embarassing. JSHUDedbhbshdcbdyf! And I was shaking... so holding the bloody camera was near impossible, so I ballsed up the picture. But she was happy, and that was all that mattered. When he put his arm around her for the photo... the look on her face was priceless XD
We then retired from the con to a courtyard where the cosplayers had seemed to have converged upon. We ate and sat in the wind (which was rediculously strong I might add). We then met:
- Christmas Riku
- Christmas Axel
- Chrimstas Sora
All of thse guys I've been chatting to since, so I can't wait to bump into them again at our next shared con. Should be good to see them again XD.
All in all it was an amazing con. My con book has taken up more pages this time than it ever has before. I got Twinfool's autograph, I got the con-badge which shall last me forever and some amazing pictures. Anna got to meet her idol, Charlotte got to buy a million posters and I got watch the look on my girlfriends face as her birthday present put his arm around her.
Alcon was amazing. Met some amazing people and did some amazing things. I loved our cosplays and I hope to see everyone again next year!!!
(P.S, also the best 9 months so far in my life. Great to share a month-a-versary with actually at a con!:
