Since we already had our badges we didn't care about go to the Fairmont, although we were looking around for a clothing store since C didn't bring enough clothes to stay over at my place. We ended up at a Ross and she got a whole outfit from head-to-toe by the end of the day. While we were walking to Ross I opened the box of Panda Pocky because I was hungry. There was a wall with pandas on them and I was telling C (because she loves pandas and because of the panda wallpaper she had on her laptop back in my junior year of uni did I make friends with her) about the pandas. I was eating a piece of Panda Pocky and the rest of it fell out of my mouth/slipped from my fingers. I told her it was retribution because I was eating panda pocky in front of pands T__T. Well we went to Ross & she tried on clothes. I also tried on a shirt because it was a shirt with a mustache on it. I was going to get it but decided not to at the last minute because I thought I could use that money to get more loot from Fanime.
Afterwards we walked to a Japanese restaurant to eat lunch. While we were waiting for our food to arrive, C's friend D wanted to meet up with her and so she stepped out to tell him how to get to the restaurant. While I was waiting I was looking out and saw an Anise, Ion, and Natalia walking on the other-side of the street. Of course I wanted to run out and take a picture but I couldn't do that since C stepped outside to talk on the phone and I was watching our stuff. So I was a disappointed Air. We got our food and ate and D arrived. He ordered a Asahi beer since he never tried Japanese beef before. He paid for our food and then we walked towards the direction of the con. While walking we ran into a Ciel wearing that pink dress of his when he cross-dressed. I took a picture of Ciel & D wanted a picture with Ciel too. D forgot his phone at the restaurant so he went back to get it while C & I waited for him.
We continued forward and ended up at Artist Alley since C & I didn't get to go the day before. However on our way to Artist Alley, right outside the convention center did I almost miss a Luke! He was just sitting on the side and while I was walking I vaguely saw at the corner of my eye red. I turned around and went "lskjdfsdfjkl" when I found out it was Luke. Of course I went to ask if I could take a picture. We continued on and ended up at Artist Alley. We went in and started going down the aisles. While we were at a table, I was about to pay for the keychains (
$12 down the drain
) when I looked up and saw a Yosuke! I immediately said "I'll be right back" since C was still there looking and the artist was still trying to cut the Hetalia chains out for me . I ran around and got to the Yosuke and asked him for a picture. I went back to the stall and paid for the Hetalia chains of America, Japan, England, and North Italy. I bought more stuff and got some pins (
Byebye there $19... 5+6+3+5
) of Zelos Wilder from Symphonia, Richard from Graces, Asch from Abyss, Lucy from Fairy Tail, Natsu from FT, Gray from FT, Maka & Soul from Soul Eater, and a Tidus from FFX. Then I reached a stall and found more phone charms and I ended up getting a Sophie from Tales Graces, Undertaker from Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler (
this one is for you Carol
), and Ciel (in girl form) from Kuroshitsuji.
While we circled around I found a Rita from Tales of Vesperia. C & I continued on and we literally linked arms and ran towards a Squall from FFVIII. I was like "OMG A SQUALL!" I also ran into a Finnian from Kuroshitsuji. In between I helped D take several pictures for him. We decided to stop walking around Artist Alley because C & I wanted to go back to the Dealer's Hall since we didn't have that much time the day before. D went to his car to charge his phone and take a nap. Thus C & I walked back to the main convention center. However, along the way we ran into a Death the Kid from Soul Eater. However, I felt really bad asking Kid since they said they just got out of the car and many people already stopped them to take a picture... I'M SO SORRY! D; While we got closer, I ran into a Natsu and took a picture. C & I walked upstairs to the Dealer's Hall and while we looked around I ran into a Wendy from Fairy Tail! Of course I had to ask for a picture. Then I ran into a Juvia and she was with a Happy holding a fish wrapped up (for
Charle I bet
). Then while I was looking around looking for stuff for dakkumauji
, I ran into a North Italy! North Italy was so cute. Well C & I walked around and I picked up another set of Tales of Series box, Tales of Series Nendoroid Petite box, and a Persona 4 box. I also picked up a Gintama box along the way (
). The stuff I just named were all for dakkumauji
, well depending on who's in the Persona 4 box I might be keeping that.
However I do want to know who you got so I might want to ask if I can switch... I don't want two Yuri's! D
Then C & I started getting tired walking around everywhere and we saw a really cute shirt that said おにぎり 愛 with a picture of sakura & an onigiri (
). We both had to get one, so we have matching shirts! Yay! Well we sat down for a while and while sitting down I saw a Rikku from Final Fantasy X-2 passing by and ran up to her asking if I could take a picture. I think she did an awesome job with her costume too! Eventually C & I got back up and continued walking around. We walked out of the Dealer's Hall and circled around outside of the Dealer's Hall and I ran into a Serah Farron & Lightning from FFXIII. As we were leaving the entrance of the Dealer's Hall I ran into an Aerith Gainsborough & Cloud Strife from FFVII and a Happy (in a mascot costume... omg props to them for wearing that!). We walked towards the area where the films are shown and we met up with a Freya from Chobits! She told us she also had a Chii around but she went to take some purikura. So we thought that was cool. We walked around trying to figure out what to do next and we ended up outside and somewhat lost. Well I found a Sakura from CCS and took a picture. We walked back into the main area & took a picture of a Cloud in his Advent Children outfit (with a character from Type-0 I never noticed until I uploaded the photos... however I don't know who she is =[).
C & I ended up back upstairs near the Dealer's Hall again and we found Chii! Freya's Chii because I asked her if she happened to have a Freya with her and she said she did! Only assumed she was Freya's Chii because their outfits were similar! She asked us where we saw her and we pointed her towards the direction we last saw her, I hope she found her Freya! We continued on and ended back into the Dealer's Hall. C & I were at one of the stalls and I got a Kyle from Destiny 2 & Shing from Hearts trinket. I wanted the Asch but he was 15 dollars... (
while Kyle & Shing were $8 each, so $16
). I bought them and we continued on to the Yaoi table... They somehow egged me on & I ended up buying $60.50 worth of stuff... I forgot to take a picture of the "Only the Ring Finger Fits" volume 5 of the novel (
that i had no idea existed
). There I got the Uraboku Shijitaki, Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi shijitaki, Ouran doujinshi, the Hetalia (America & China) desktop cutouts, Hetalia charm, & two Yaoi novels for C. They gave me a free bag for spending over $50. Lol.
Well we decided to leave the Dealer's Hall because I would've spent more money... and when we walked out I saw a Hard Gay. Omg. That was awesome. Well we continued on and ran into an Akihiko from P3. Well either way we continued walking and ended up downstairs and I ran towards an Akihiko from P4A time. He did a pretty good job with his costume in my opinion hahas. Well C & I ended up at the front hall again and I saw a Chibitalia with a push-broom! I had to take a picture because she had a push-brooooooooooom. Yet once again we walked back up stairs and close to Dealer's Hall I found a Date Masamune too bad he didn't have his signature hat. While we were getting close to leaving I saw a Prussia with an America wearing a pink tutu (and both had ears). Prussia had taken off their belt & America said they took off everything else they had on and felt naked. I for some reason had a brain-fart and told them I didn't take any Hetalia cosplayers yet... because i honestly forgot I took pictures of some already *facepalm* Well never the less the posed and I snapped away.
We decided to leave the con before it got too late and so we walked back to the Caltrain station and on the grass I ran into a Rise from P4! They were confused because they didn't know I was asking them until they realized I was looming over them (they were with a group). So she posed for me and I thanked her and we continued on. We got on the Caltrain and played games on my DS Lite & my 3DS. We decided to bring my DS with some multi-player games and played them on the train because we knew we would get bored. When we got back to San Francisco we went to Super Duper and ate burgers and ordered a Strawberry Milkshake. I also ordered garlic fries.... and we realized we shouldn't have mixed the shake with garlic fries... that was a pretty bad combination that C and I had to go to a 7-eleven to get some Tums for her. All the Walgreens & Rite Aids were closed by that time. Well we caught a bus and had to change buses because it was 25 minutes before the next bus that went near my place came. Since it was 25 minutes we decided to take another bus closer towards my area before changing buses and caught the one that we would've waited 25 minutes for when it came around the area we got off. We finally got back to my place around 10ish, 11 and we went to sleep not long after I fixed some of my stuff. Man did we have a long day.
I'm going to write the 3rd and last day when I wake up in the morning... it's 3AM in the morning now T__T
I'll also do the tagging later!
