Well I finally updated my journal, and after having such an awesome, yet stressful weekend I don't know where to start.
I guess I can start at Seaworld where I finally met Jedi Skysinger's English buds Kate and her husband Nigel. We were supposed to get the tickets to go to Seaworld 50% off due to a discount we found online, but said discount DID NOT say we had to buy the tickets ONLY online. So after blowing over $100+ on the tickets we can now go back ALL year, which is both good that I can return, but bad that there's now a hole in our wallets.
HOWEVER! I not only got to feed dolphins and pet them, (which is a fantasy made reality because I love dolphins.) I got to see this wonderful dolphin show and get a picture of myself with the cast, feed some stingrays, got to see the new turtle trek and see Shamu up close in personal. And get to know Kate and Nigel and NOT get burned by the sun while I was out. Afterwars we went to Bahama Breeze for dinner where I had this chocolate mousse cake and some potatoes, corn, and hawaiian style chicken and mojitos for a last drink. (Which I didn't drink due to my vow of no alcohol.)
And an unexpected thing happend: I got to spend the weekend with my BFF Naomi aka
. First I needed a ride to get to Megacon and someone to help fix my hair into a Star Trek style bun second Naomi needed my shoes for her Rise costume for Persona 4. We spent the time before we wnet to bed to watch some internet videos (mostly our newest fandom Transformers: Prime) and some Nostaglia Critic.
The Next Day, the day of MegaCon, Naomi had to leave early to pass this test in order for her to get her education degree. Unfortunately I slept in until my cellphone woke me up at 9:00. Afterwards I hastily attempted to get my costume on beofre Naomi got there BUT Mamita insisted that I eat Breakfast before I did anything. So Naomi came back right when I was about to take a shower and afterwards I got my costume on, and Naomi got hers on, and after taking nearly an hour with the hair and makeup (aka Naomi's pigtails and my hairbun, and my 70's style Star Trek makeup and Naomi Anime girl makeup) we went out to pick up our friend Victoria.
Unfortunately, traffic was TERRIBLE it took us over 3 hours for us to finally find a place to park and then walk our way to the convention center were in the South Concourse we were packed like sardines in a can.
Fortunately we got in but due to traffic and the numbers of people in the convention center she decided just to do shopping while I went around looking for celebrities with a trace of shopping. We then agreed to meet back at the Ripley's Believe it or Not section of the convention floor and we went our separate ways.
I first then started asking around where to find Quinton Flynn (aka Reno from FFVII/ Axel from KH/ Carl the Phantom from BLOOD+) and, of course Vic Mignogna. Whilst asking around I found and met Yaya Han
And I not only got an autograph, a print AND a picture, she also said my Star Trek costume was great and she loved my makeup job.
THEN! I found Quinton Flynn and got the greatest fan wish fulfillment of my life where I not only got to sing with him "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera, I had him also sing the song with me in Carl's voice (aka the Phantom)!
And not only that, I got a free bite
and he also gave a shoutout to my firend Becca aka
with Carl's voice too. And he also told me that he doesn't get too many Carl fans and was happy to know that it was because of him that I got into BLOOD+.
THEN! I met Vic Mignonga again and he said he loved my Star Trek costume and I got to sing his redition of the DNAngel song "True Light" with him (even though it was only 2 verses cause we were pressed for time.) and afterwards he said that not only did I have a beautiful voice
he also gave me a
and that he remebered me and the song I wrote for him last year!
I felt I was set for life, but yet ANOTHER surpise came my way after I left vic's booth.
I met Rikki
And we talked for a few minutes since there wasn't much of a line behind us. And she liked my costume and my makeup and I told her about the Vampire Hunter D novels after talking about Yaya's Carmilla costume from Bloodlust. I then told her about Larmica Lee and her dresses and she then smiled and said "Are you trying to give me a suggestion?" I said "maybe"
. I got a picture with her and I realized I was set for life after this.
Not only to meet Yaya, and Rikki, and Quinton Flynn but to have Vic Mignogna remeber me I realized I was indeed a very blessed girl, thank you GOD!
Afterwards we met up after buying a Transformers Autobot medallion, the Mockingjay pin and a mini Sailor Jupiter for Naomi we went to Popeyes to get something to eat, in which my food was attracted to my clothing to the point I now have to dryclean it.
However, that I needed to have it done anyway because I really sweated in the costume whilist walking in the heat. Afterwards we went back home and crashed.
All in all I had a GREAT time last weekend. I'll upload the pictures of me in my costume and with Yaya and Rikki ASAP and the vidoes of Quinton Flynn and Vic on Thursday after I edit them so you guys can understand what they are saying/ singing on my YT account.
