Con of the Dance, Report Part Two: Mexican Banana Dance  
Whatever powers that may be, help me, for I have made an icon of my fluffy merchant butt. I hope it is work-safe.

I suppose I should clarify a bit, and say that this is what I remember of Friday (which probably isn't half of what happened).

Over the course of the weekend, I successfully met the following individuals in person: erikadoor, ecindery, ladyaltara, lionboogy, jezeroth, auturgist (though I did not realize he was him until ... oh, about two days later. Go me.), nac, kellilla, and many others who probably have LJs that I haven't figured out about yet. Does Al/Eurobeat King have a LJ? I felt like such a social butterfly. : P

And now ... details of the PINK BAG OF DOOM.

I wore Pera all day Friday, without headgear at first and then with multiple variations thereof once I ran into Erika. I was uber-fond of the Fancy Flower and Puppy Love, which leads me to conclude that Pera must be a displaced Hawaiian ... though her flowers seem bright and tropical, she was totally dressed for some place like Alaska. Erika thought Pera was a hippy (hippie?). Either way, Pera's still nuts.

I met up with David of ng-master.com around one for a photoshoot with Pera (sans flowers) that turned out most amusingly. A little bit o' First Aid ... Pera, Dead as a Doornail (wish I had a cart to fall under) ... and what David refers to as Pera's professional pose. I wish I could get my sprite to sit in a city like that, as I bet you I'd sell all my Pimp Hats at exorbitant prices.

When I say I wore Pera all damn day, I really wasn't joking. o_O Despite having had three hours of sleep the night before, I got up early and donned the gear I had ... and noticed that the longer I wore the costume, the more I began to walk like the sprite in-game. My hips were thrust forward and my shoulders back (prominently displaying the pink bag of death), and I shuffled everywhere I went. "Running" meant shuffling along faster.

By the end of the day, I felt like death on a stick. XD My apologies, Erika, for being such a limp figure once out of Pera ... maybe that pink bag ate my soul and all my energy. I was totally deflated. o_o I went to a "party" for a little while after I got the heck out of Pera, and was amused by the antics of many cosplayers. I left fairly early and found the floor of our room unusually comfortable!

The pictures on my camera shall be revealed either tomorrow or Thursday. It is currently experiencing some technical difficulties!

Wow, I just got some great spam. It's entitled, "Boost Your Car's Gas Mileage 27%+, bantu eager buchenwald pope". What the heck is a buchenwald pope, and why is he eager? Tell me, spam man!!

Love that icon, lol ^^
Yes, isn't spam amusing? What always makes me laugh are the ones I get telling me I can improve HER life or something like that. I'm like "Waitaminute..." O_O

Wow, your merchant costume is so awesome! I want to do my RO cosplay too (my knight), except it probably will never happen cause I have no clue how to make armor. o_o And I sure as hell am not going to dress up as my skanky-looking smith...

If you wear a Mr. Smiley mask, you can pretend that it's not you. : P
