So, as some of you know, I went to Anime Evolution on Friday, August 13th, 2010 for the first time.
It was huge; man. Terrifyingly huge.
I will recall the events of the day and tell you what I got, who I saw and HOW MUCH FUN IT WAS!!! Here goes.
and I slept over at
's house Thursday night and in the morning we put on our costumes, loaded our stuff into her parents car and the four of us as well as her mum, dad and sister came along. We dropped
off at the bus stop (had to work and ended up not going
After that we picked up
(who was still asleep so a bit of a delay there) and ended up catching the 9am ferry to Vancouver as scheduled. The following events were written down as they happened and then I'll add detail so it's not too confusing.
8:51=arrived in bathroom to do makeups. We all had our various makeups to do. I had to do my purple triangle thingy, put on my wig and blow up balloons (my boobs just don't cut if for Tsunade).
=See Xaldin girl in bathroom. 1st pic of Day! It was great. I was very excited.
9:44=See Aly Tisdale on ferry. She seemed ashamed to know me. This girl I know from Musical Theatre camp was on the ferry. She's kinda prissy and I had to wave for her to recognize me. She smiled like she didn't want to admit she knew me. lol
11:36=saw Faith and Mello.
were there. I said hi but they didn't recognize me until I told them I was Jessie from Team Rocket two years ago at Keikon. I got a hug. ^^
11:48=registered C= Actually, we saw a lineup that ended pretty close to the registration booth. We were able to get in only 5 minutes after getting in line! A woman came up to us and asked if we were in line and we're like..."yes." so she left us alone. Turns out (and we didn't realize this until after registration) the line extended for like two blocks outside in the blazing sun and it would have taken us two hours to get in if we had realized. I'd like to apologize to all of you who waited in the line while we didn't, but our happiness at not having to stand in the sun outweighed out guilt. xP
1:18= Saw Shimada. She was dressed as the Queen of Hearts. I love her Queen of Hearts cosplay. It's great. She didn't recognize me, though.
1:26=found Xander (
). Said 'Hi'. Was kind of awkward. Xander was dressed as Hidan. It was great! ^^ We hugged but don't know each other well enough to be able to talk for long so it was king of awkward, like I said. Lots of these: "..." (can't remember what they're called).
1:32=got out of Dealer's Hall without being spotted by Jacob McDonald. Long story short: he's this creepy guy that
and I know from Taekwon Do when we were little. He's a total creep and I was devastated so see him there. Luckily, he didn't see me! ^^
1:51="Who's Line Is It Anime?" I'm pretty sure that's what it was, but the schedule said it wasn't on until Saturday. May be it was a preview or something.
I was very excited to find her. I bought an 'OBJECTION' button from her and got both a picture of her and her autograph! *squee* It's going on my wall, man! Check out her art, it's really good!
2:36=go for lunch. Not hungry. I ended up buying a poutine from A&W and sharing it with Nicole, who'd apparently never had one before.
3:13=Not sure what to do now...
3:14=building hunting. we looked for the library with guest autographs (I really wanted Richard Ian Cox's!) but we couldn't find the right one. Apparently UBC has 4 libraries.
3:38=called Nicole's parents. they were at the mall and it took almost two hours for them to come get us.
laying GLOMP GAME. it was great. everyone stands in a circle and when you get glomped, you go into the middle of the circle, kick a pop bottle and whoever it points at is who you glomp!
3:55=feet hurt. Stopped. It was bad. Blisters galore.
4:32=heard guy playing harmonica play "Windmill Hut", "Lost Woods" and "Marketplace" from LoZ: OoT
5:15=got back in car
5:58=arrived in terminal
I got dropped off at home at about ten thirty or so.
-Nicole was Naruto but then bought a Luffy hat and wore it. Her new character name is "Narfy"
-Luxord on the ferry had a British accent. Tres authentic!
I bought...well...not a lot, but good stuff!

8 mini bookmark things (free): Bleach=Momo, Rukia, Hitsugaiya; Chiyo-chan; DNAngel
