Otakuthon 2014 report and end of con season

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 30, 2014, 1:03 PM


I finally have time to write a little report on last weeked: Otakuthon 2014!

It went great like always.

*~*Friday*~*

I finished work at 5pm and then got to meet a friend of mine. We ate some delicious shabu-shabu together and shared an Umeshu bottle. She was wearing a yukata while I was in casuals. I didn't plan on wearing a cosplay that night.

After that, we went to the con and I got to watch a bit a skit based on Phoenix Wright. I was waiting for my Ottawa friends (:iconrock-lees-lotus: and :iconjazz317:) to arrive in Montreal. They texted me around 7pm-ish and then I went to meet them at their hotel room to drop off my cosplay stuff for the next morning. :iconrock-lees-lotus: was running a panel on positive sexual education at 9pm so I went to assist it with :iconjazz317: and :iconsunnytiger22: (who got to meet us by then). It was very interesting and the room was full! 

Then :iconsunnytiger22: and I went to a panel about horror manga and anime. It was....okay. But the girl wasn't that prepared and she even made a lot of mistakes in the name of the mangakas...but otherwise, some parts of it was funny. I didn't write down anything but I'm sure I can find what she showed quite easily.

After that, we regrouped with the other girls and just chilled and talked. I then went my way home to get at least a fair amount of sleep hours.

*~*Saturday*~*

The big day!

I arrived at :iconrock-lees-lotus: and :iconjazz317:'s hotel room around 8:45 am and put on my new Claire Redfield cosplay.

I then went to the con center by myself and waited for :iconhenrickson: to arrive. I had a photoshoot with him at 10 am. A friend of mine also asked me if he could assist to see how a cosplay photoshoot was done. He wants to learn to do portrait and cosplay photography. He ended up being :iconhenrickson:'s assistant XD but I think he was glad to do it.

The shoot went well even though I felt we didn't have much time to actually take the pictures. The set-up always takes a big chunk of time. But I saw a sample of it, and it looks pretty cool! :) I'll post the pictures as soon as I'll get them :aww:

After the shoot, I met up with :iconrock-lees-lotus:, :iconjazz317: and :iconsunnytiger22: who were cosplaying as Jill Valentine (RE1), Steve Burnside and Sherry Birkin (RE6). We worked a bit on our first RE panel.

After that, we kinda went our separate way because the girls had to get their badge and I had to go in line for the Final Fantasy concert at 1 pm. It was great by the way! I got to see it with some other friends. A lot of the tracks were unknown to me because they were from the early games, but they did play "Those who fight" and the FF8 battle theme which sounded exactly like in the game. AND the great Nobuo Uematsu was there! He actually played in one of the songs.

I went to get lunch with a friend and then reunited with my RE buddies.

Our first RE panel was about to start. It was the reading of George A Romero's movie script based on RE1. The room was almost full and people seemed to have liked it. I was voicing Chris XD it was so funny! If you got some spare time, go read it, it's hilarious! XD www.dailyscript.com/scripts/re…

After the panel, we went back to the girls' hotel room and did a little funny photoshoot with alternate outfits. I'll maybe post one or two pictures of it XD it was really silly though

We changed back in our normal RE cosplay and got dinner in Chinatown. Our second RE panel was at 10 pm. This one was general discussion about the series and some of the latest news. I have to say that I didn't participate much, I was kinda shy ^^; 

After the panel, it was already late so I went back home to sleep after changing at the girls's hotel.


*~*Sunday*~*

Same thing as the day before, I put my Claire cosplay in :iconrock-lees-lotus: and :iconjazz317:'s hotel room. But this time we all went out together. :iconrock-lees-lotus: had a cosplay from Archer and :iconjazz317: was in casuals. 

We didn't do much except going to the dealers room where I bought a new shirt from 1%talent and then going in line for the 404s Sunday show. While in line, I went to get some (expensive) sushi and soda from the cosplay café because I was silly and didn't get proper food before that. The show was hilarious like always. Got me into tears at some point. It's always fun to watch them.

After the show, I had to say goodbye to :iconrock-lees-lotus: and :iconjazz317:. They had to go back to Ottawa (2 hour drive or so). It's always so fun hanging out with them. Wish we could see each other more! (and we could, it's not like we live THAT far from each other)

I got photographed a bit more and then changed in casuals to help my boyfriend take down the lan equipement (30 computers). I went back home with him after that.

And that was it. All in all, a very fun convention with fun people :)

We already know what panel we want to do next year. It's going to be very interesting! XD

My new Claire cosplay was VERY well received. But I think I was the only Claire cosplayer that weekend XD

Only downside was that we didn't see a lot of RE cosplayers. 2-3 Adas Friday night (while we weren't in cosplay), and a Wesker, female Jake and some Umbrella guys Saturday. Not the best year for RE cosplayers. But considering we did 2 RE panels this year, we expect to see more cosplayers next year :)

~~~

And with that, my con season is over for this year. I know it's only 2 cons but when you work full-time and have a house to pay, you can't afford to go to more XD

I'm kinda tempted to go to G-Anime in January (near Ottawa)....the Nostalgia Critic is invited..so...ughhh....I dunno...maybe....but I didn't hear that many positive comments about that con, so I'll see.

So yeah, expect me to post more pictures from both cons in the following months! Like always, I try to not put too many. You're always welcome to check my cosplay page to see more :)
