Making up a journal so then I can cross-post it on my Facebook page. Woo.
and I made it in Thursday night with another friend of ours and we got our badges and then pretty much stayed in the room the rest of the night. Friday comes along and I had a shoot early with PotatoKraken
and since I thought having a later photoshoot was a good idea I also had another one many hours later with EBW
. I kinda wished I didn't have such spread out photoshoots, but that's what I thought was a good idea. Immediately after my second shoot I changed from Alice (Alice: Madness Returns) to Cosima Niehaus (Orphan Black). No one knew who I was which was kind of sad. I figured I could derp around with Poke at the Doctor Who photoshoot and maybe someone would put the idea of Supernatural Saturday together when DW came back 2 series' ago, but no one did. So Friday came and went and then Saturday morning Poke and I had an Avatar the Last Airbender photoshoot. I was Mai and she was Zuko. They were worth re-wears anyway so it worked out nicely. We went to an Avatar panel before hand just to make our con passes worth it for the weekend and then got drafted into being on the panel since the Toph was the only one there. Oh, but before we got drafted to sit with Toph an Azula came into the room and Poke couldn't help, but yell "hi sis!" and she came over to us. The Toph afterward got confused cause she thought we actually knew each other out of panel. Neither me nor the Azula wanted to be up there, but we were. She was 100% in character which was awesome and I just...well, I didn't want to be there so I sat on my phone. I got called out by an audience member, but Mai doesn't give a damn so why should I? Eh whatever. I made up answers as I possibly could while trying to stay in character. Then a Sokka came in and also got drafted and he was doing pretty well of improving for the rest of the time. I was all for the Toph and Zuko show since Poke's actually very good at improving in character! So we ended up being a few minutes late to our photoshoot with FrieseFramePhotography
. I ended up changing into Cosima after that for the rest of the day and Poke changed into Danny Fenton from Danny Phantom! We went to a photoshoot/meet-up and met up with StrigineSensibility
(yay new friends!) and had a mini photoshoot gathering. If I was quicker on my feet I should have actually done a mini photoshoot with everyone individually since there was only 9 of us! My desktop is being complicated so photos are yet to be uploaded to the interwebs. I also wanted to edit a couple so those will be uploaded to my photobucket probably sometime possibly by the end of the week. Then we ended up going to the waterpark at the end of the day and all of Sunday so that was pretty cool.
Also as some of you may have seen on my Facebook page
I have high expectations for my photoshoots and was really only there for half the time that I paid for. Alice is NOT meant for Safari-themed cons and Avatar...well...they're ok, I guess. I'm curious to see what comes out of it. Next time I should have a timer or more references or want to do more of the same poses again differently. I should just direct my own photoshoot with a "professional." Poke did a really good job with small direction from me when I was Mai after our private shoot. Eh, we'll just have to see. Oh what I wasted $80 for the full weekend of shoots. No big deal, right?
