Fanfest was 5th and 6th of this month and I have to say it was pretty much as awesome as I expected. Since I have been lot into western fandoms lately it was really fun to have con for those (well it wasn't strikely only western fandoms but anyway).
First of all it was weird to go to con without car. It was fun and nice change but also little annoying 'cos you had to take only as much stuff you can carry.
Secondly for long time there were many panels etc. to attend to. For long time there has been only cosplay contents worthy to attend and one or two panel in whole con. But now I went to four panels. And I learned something! Sherlock fandom panel was pure gold and I really enjoyed Cassandra Clare's panel.
Thirdly it felt like atmosphere was more like what I have been missing. Like you could easily find people whom are into fandom you're in and... It's hard to explain. I don't mean that any anime etc. con has been bad (I have really enjoyed them all and met great people) but like now I'm really into Les Mis and it was amazing to see other cosplayers and have connection. There was this tiny photoshoot/singing moment during Sunday with adorable Enjolras, Courfeyrac and Grantaire and it made my day though I was just there to take few photos like some other people and sung along with the boys. (Thanks whom ever you guys where~~)
Of course there was only about 1000 people so it was easier to feel connection but still. I really hope there will be con like this.
Fourth: My cosplays where modern!au Enjolras with proper clothes, a cockade and my flags. As perfectionist I couldn't order them from online so I made those flags by myself. On Sunday my cosplay was Hannibal Lecter from NBC Hannibal. ~RiKyo5
was making Will's cosplay and said it would be nice to have Hannibal. So I took the challenge. (I wasn't even supposed to watch that show...) I wasn't fully happy with my make-up and the wig I ordered was awful so I had to use substitu but had great time. Next time better xD
Fifth: I met some old friends and got to hang around with my sisters and friends and with just-got-to-know-friends~
What other? Hmm. Me and ~RiKyo5
as Marius to our little cosplay group! Couldn't be more happy~ We are (maybe too) deep into this Les Mis now. We started roleplay in Twitter with three person playing two characters each (we are killing each others with feels) We are going to cosplay together as soon as possible.
And I got myself Izzy (~Ryuunya
) and Jace (~Ryttz
) from TMI~ Again couldn't be more happy~~ Finally got someone to cosplay with Alec! We almost have all the Lightwood children ^^
Photoshoots coming, maybe idk. Depends on feels and time. Next cosplay related thing is cosplay meet in Tampere 9th November. Gonna go there and cosplay modern!auEnjolras if our group is together there. If not then maybe Flynn (I always forget that I have that cosplay ready and never woren it...)
Then next cons are in next year. First one to attend is most likely Yukicon in January. And then Desucon Frostbite in February. Lot of cosplays decided for next year and I'm filling that cosplay meme again~
That's all for this time~ See ya~~
