I'd had this trip planned since April to go and visit my friend 12Dee3 and spend the weekend with her and her family. But then, a few weeks ago, I got told of ConBravo! and I asked her about it, she talked to her parents, and it was decided that we were going!!!
I caught the train at 1:50 and my train from Toronto to Woodstock was a few minutes late in getting me to my destination. I was picked up by 12Dee3 and her dad :) They took me to A&W for dinner :P I hadn't had that in a long time so it was a nice treat. I hadn't had it in so long TT_TT
Dee and I watched I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry later on when we were at her house. I'd been wanting to see that since it was announced for theaters. And OMG I loved it xD It was hilarious!!!
Sleeping in... feels so good when nobody calls you at 9:30. Got to sleep till like... 10:30? 11? Either way, it was nice :) Cosplay work started after breakfast. We worked on the wigs and the crowns, while watching Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. It was a great movie to watch while we prepared for going to ConBravo! the very next day. The wigs were joint efforts :) SO MUCH GLUE IN DEE'S OMG XD
Mine had none... just curlers xD Dinner was corn on the cob and ribs and veggies. WHEE VEGGIES!!! I NEED VEGGIES!!!! Finished off Dee's cosplay after dinner. Luckily, didn't need the sewing machine xD Like we thought we would >>
Saturday: ConBravo 2012!
OMG ConBravo was fun :D
We went as Cosmo and Wanda from Fairly Odd Parents. We got there around 11, 11:30, got our passes, and proceeded to take pictures and head to the dealer's room. We were really well recognized! We were rather surprised to be honest xD
We found a few people that we knew, cosplays that we loved, and visited the Cosplay for a Cure photo booth. We made our charitable donation and got our pictures taken with a cosplayer dressed as Princess Velvet from Odin Sphere - who did an amazing job btw! I like hers better than mine xD
Also Dee and I filmed a skit with CosplayCanada. I'll post a link to this when he's edited and posted it online :)
Left around 5pm and went to dinner with Dee's parents at Emma's Back Porch. OMG SO GOOD FOOD!!!
Trip home. Like all good things, the weekend had to come to an end. I can't wait to visit again (in a few years though - can't make the trip every year xD)
