I started my Desujourney on Friday. Me and my boyfriend got into his car when he got off work and slowly but surely we made our way to Lahti and found the hotel we were staying at. We did get there at like 8, which in my lazy opinion was too late to start putting on a cosplay and dragging my ass to Sibeliustalo, so we just chilled out in the hotel and had some food. I actually ate fairly regularly, that's a con first. And actual food too, not just sandwiches and shit. Achievement unlocked.
So, Saturday was the first actual con day for me. We got up, got ready and I got into brand new, undebuted Gisen Yagyu cosplay. And man I felt fabulous. And I also felt like my tits and ass were showing waaaay too much, but whatever, I captured the spirit of the show damn good in that miniskirt haha.
Attractive hotel room pic there. I don't even think I had put my wig on properly in that pic. Or well judging by the looks of it, no I hadn't. Nothing is more sexy than a wig almost falling off your head. I had a monster of a prop for this costume as well, which you will get to see in later pics.
We got to the con and just hung out a little. Since my boyfriend never had been to a con before he did hardly know where to look haha. I get why though, I don't think there are many events as colorful and as filled with all kinds of people as cons. We checked out the Artist Alley and the Dealers Room, took pictures and so on. You congoers know the drill, no need to explain it. We also went to watch the Euro Cosplay preliminaries of Finland, and do I even need to say all the contestants were awesome? I also had a photoshoot with some fellow Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girl cosplayers, Hansku as Jyubei and Jäärä as Sen-hime. I am still waiting for these pictures (damnit Hansku I want them, send 'em to meeee. Hahaha) but I took the liberty of borrowing the ones Hansku posted on her blog (and no, it's not my panties that show in the pic below, it's part of my tights, sorry to disappoint you);
All pics were taken by Poke. I really like the last one, looks awesome. But yeah, when I get the rest of the pics I might make another post with those if I like many of them. However, I did have Janne (that's boyfriends name, I just realized I didn't mention that earlier, oops) take some pics with my camera, so I do have some solo shots of this cosplay as well;
(And I'm sorry, the wrapping on the katana handle started sliding around, I should have made it tighter, so the part closest to the blade if fucking disorted....)
Just a couple of close ups, as I said, you'll get to see more when I get more pics. But that sums up my Saturday. We went back to the hotel room, I changed, then we grabbed something to eat at the nearest Hesburger and went back to the hotel again where Janne almost instantly fell asleep (I exhausted the poor thing with all my running around at the con haha) and I stayed up drinking wine, celebrating my birthday by myself....
... which leads me to Sunday, which also was my birthday. The long awaited age of 18 has finally reached me as well. But enough of that. I got up, got dressed as Tomoyo from Clannad and we got moving again. We were both kinda tired although we did get fairly much sleep, so we didn't do much, we went to see the skit competition which was a new feature of Desucon and then we watched some anime in the Anime Room and took some pictures of other cosplayers and some of me. I wanted some nice summer Tomoyo pics but in teh end I was really tired and didn't have enough motivation for a longer shoot. So I ended up with like 2 okay pics haha;
A highlight of my day was meeting a fellow Clannad fan who was really happy to see someone cosplaying from the series. It made me really happy to see how excited she was to see my cosplay, moments like that really make me like cosplaying more :3
But as previously stated, we were tired and wanted to get home at a reasonable time, so we started moving towards Vaasa really early since there was no more panels or something that captured my interest.
Overall I had fun, the only drawback was how tired I was at Sunday. Seriously, am I getting old or something? I shouldn't be exhausted after ONE con day haha. Oh well it was a nice con, Desu never disappoints. And now as a final touch to this post, some hall pictures of random and less random cosplayers who also were at Desu;
All pics were taken by boyfriend because I'm too lazy to operate my camera. But that's it for this post, I shall be back sometime, hopefully with some awesome Gisen pics, but bye for now~
