...were really awesome. :'D
So obviously I managed to finish the outfit in time. Huzzah!
The gloves I spent £15 on in M&S Dx but they are really nice ^^ and I can use them for England too~
The knife is actually rubbery xD £2.50( i think ) from Amazing Party co.
Stockings were from Wilkinsons for £2.49( again, I think so XD ). Was worried with them being only 15 denier that they would be too light D: but I think they work actually ^^
Set off from Rachel's house at 6am ( slept over the night before, albeit we didn't have much sleep xD Rachel played a game which included clowns xD while Sammy and I chatted to Cleverbot as Italy and Belarus. Cleverbot- as Russia- said he'd marry Belarus :'D and in the case of Italy, Cleverbot was a few people at first, but it eventually decided on America. Lmao, oh the lols we got from that! We actually got America to say "I love England!", after he avoided the question for ages X'D Sammy saved the conversation. ) and when we stepped outside... fml, it was snowing. |:
Well, Belarus wasn't complaining much XD
Everyone else was.
We got out of it eventually though ^^ and then.. it started pouring with heavy rain Dx
After getting lost and ending up in Wolverhampton( Rachel's Dad drove us XD ), we finally made it to the expo! :D
Got in the Early Entry queue with Sammy, while Rachel and her chibi brother Matthew had to buy their tickets.
Met an Amu and Utau ^^ the Amu of who actually knew who I was :'D they were awesome to chat to ^^ then saw Claire in the queue aswell! :D I was surprised to find that Sammy knew her aswell O: they were doing fem!Beybladers x3 Tyson and Kai~!
A bit further into the queue, we found a Canada( ikr? That's an epic achievement right there! ) who I actually knew aswell! XD And Belarus was then attacked by a Storm Trooper.
Knife VS Gun.
Got in the hall, and scowered it for Russia's 8D met up with Sammy's friend who was being fem!Max from Beyblade, and Rachel and Matthew found us again!
My videos from this point in time completely failed. ;^; Waaa!
And then I found one.
Lmao, he was just coming in from the queue, and I jumped on him x'D
This Russia was OmegaRFox 8D
Lmao, a similar thing happened later aswell, with the other Russia; saw them across the hall in the queue, and i nearly broke the barriers trying to get to them xD!
It was so much fun :'D I'm glad I wasn't feeling too shy this expo, unlike October, lmao~
Then my other friends were attacked by storm troopers, Sammy won a signed poster on stage, she got an America plushie which stripped a lot, and she started to create her own collection of countries xD ( Seychelles is England now? )
Oh and I was attacked by Storm Troopers again. Dx
I then found a lot of my other friends, cosplaying Hetalia characters, and hung out with them for an hour or so :D was awesome fun~! Lmao, going into the Wilkinsons with Poppy, Sophie, Sammy and Alex x'D that was interesting aswell. Spain: "I WANT A SNUGGIE!!" and making up reactions to people asking why we were 'dressed up'. :'D
Also, Sammy's awesome quote from a certain photo needs mentioning: "I'm a tomato farmer!"
:3 then did a little photoshoot with Poppy as Farmer!Spain. Lmao, we scowered the lobby part of the expo for stairs we could actually use. Couldn't find any, so we rebelled and used some anyway. xD
Sammy also took some good shots of me~! And so did Rachel outside ^^!
Then went back in the Dealers Room, and bought some copic pens xD I think i got the wrong sort actually..gah Dx
And I got more photos ^^! Also argued with the yaoi guy about buying yaoi xD damn, i think he remembered me from October aswell. Lmao~
Tried getting some photos of the winners in Masquerade, and then it was time to goooo! ;^;
Said my goodbyes( me taking the longest out of us all xD ), and we then left.
Lol, weather on the way back was horribly foggy Dx wtf weatherrrr. As my Belarus, France and Madame Red friend Sophie said to me afterwards on FB; England is PMSing. XD
I felt really badly ill on the way home though Dx I was ill before, but I think I overdid it by going to expo.
MEH. IT WAS WELL WORTH IT THOUGH. 8'D
We got back to Leeds around 8pm I think. XD
^_^ Thank you to all who I hung out with~! You were all really awesome! Same goes to those I met! :D
NOW; PHOTOSHOOT, QUICKLY! ^^; :
Had this on Monday. It's basically for a book that'll be published about cosplay in the libraries! ^^ And I'll be getting my own copy~!
I took Liz Thompson and Belarus.
But forgot my tie for Liz!/gutted.
Still, her photos are ace :'3 so are Belarus'!
^^ Do look out for the book, I'm going to say when it's out and stuffs!
After the photoshoot we went to Yo!Sushi, which was sooo fun XD! WONKY WALRUSES! Lmao. Chopsticks are great fun 8'D
Alrighty, that'll do, da?
