I do have photos with some musicians though as well as band merch, various shirts and things.

I had a pretty nice con nonetheless. I got blisters going from the car to registration! It was awful. I had to comb out my wig again due to friction of the wig with my bag, wind and the bangs sticking to my forehead. Once I got fixed up, I was able to leave with Ze Boyfriend, only needing to stop again to fix the bandages, comb the wig, apply my false lashes that really helped finish off my look and apply rice powder to dry the sweat and refresh my makeup.
By the way, my dear readers, I have a secret for a matte face that lasts for several hours in heat, air conditioning and your makeup shouldn't sweat off when you're walking between places outside! I'll tell you what I did in another post though.
Onto what I got! Ze Boyfriend went without me for Friday and Saturday of the con, because I only wanted to go Sunday–it was an inexpensive day and the people I wanted to see wouldn't be so busy then. While he was there, he got a free "Skinny Little B***h" wristband (the red wristband above) from Angelspit because he's a skinny guy. It was pretty funny! He also got a wristband for Miss Ballistic, who I think is an upcoming artist. Alongside this, he got a "Wreak Havoc" lanyard which I stole heehee.
|He's such a sweetheart for doing this for me.|

Before meeting Zoog though, we went to the dealer's room where I scoped out some lolita-y dresses. I didn't see any that really spoke to me and I was trying to conserve the rest of my money for a top+skirt combo I'm planning on getting soon.
Then along came the shirt table...
iconic Iron Helmet, armor that looks somewhat like the Iron Armor and an arrow in her knee. I am so tired of the "I took an arrow to the knee" meme... I don't even like the guards saying it! Anywho, it's an awesome shirt and I love it. (I'm wearing while I type this sentence ~ :D )
|All the bracelets! YAY ~ !|
Whenever I put on my costume again, I'll get full pictures. I'll be posting it on a cosplay forum for critiques/pointers anyway. I'll do my smudge test for my Urban Decay eyeliners soon, too!
|He doesn't really like taking photos but I'm not going to force him into one ~ (Obviously, he's wearing the camo jacket.)|
|This is an Ohmu "cosplay" that Ze Boyfriend was kind enough to snap for me on Saturday ~ They're from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, a Hiyao Miyazaki film|
|When the Ohmu get mad, the globes on their hides turn red as you see here.|
