Hey all of my awesome watchers and random viewers on DA.
Thank you for taking the time to read this journal.
Thurs 8/11: Today was the day that my friend Daphne and myself were to fly down to Brisbane but, before that was to happen, I needed to race to the local supermarket for some last minute cosplay supplies. Quickly after I had done that, I drove to pick up Daphne and we raced to the airport for a 4:30pm flight. The plane however was twenty minutes late. Finally after a small wait we touched down in Brisbane safely, then was picked up by to go for another round of shopping (this time for food supplies).
Friday 9/11: The day of rest, even though SupaNova started later that day. Around 5:15/5:30 however, we arrived at the convention just to pick up our tickets for Saturday and Sunday and have a small look around, just to see where everything was.
Saturday 10/11: After lots of tossing and turning the night before, I finally made it to sleep. Then, before I knew it......BAM!!! It was sunrise. Unfortunately for me however I was still fairly tired from the night before (Friday night). Today was the day I was to debut my Kakuzu cosplay. We arrived a little late that day because had a little trouble with his costume, Daphne was dressed as jedi Jocasta Nu and as a Yuuzhan Vong, and, as they were both exhibitors, they used a different entrance to me. As soon as I entered the front gates I was swarmed by a bunch of Naruto cosplayers asking if they could have their photo with me. This happened all throughout the day and I was unable to get any pictures for myslef xD Mind, my camera has been having problems for a while now. Then at one point during the day, a father and his little girl approached me and he asked "Would it be alright if Nina got her photo with you?", I agreed. But before he could snap the shot, she kicked me, very hard, in the shin and ran have shouting "That was for Asuma-Sensei!" She was soooooooo cute....even if it hurt xD
I also managed to catch up with member Skydor and her friend Emma (Who I didn't know at the time) and chilled out for a bit, until it was time to leave. We got back to 's place and watched the remade version of Planet of the Apes before going to bed.
Sunday 11/11: The final day at SupaNova Brisbane 2012. Today I slept in till about 7:00 after my alarm had gone off at 6:30. Daphne, cosplayed as Mon Mothma, BLOODSTORME as Vinc'nt Clawross, his own generic cathar jedi, and I debuted my Tobi cosplay (Akatsuki vers). When we got there, Daphne and BLOODSTORME used the side entrance while I used the front, where I walked around a little bit until I heard "TOBI!!!!", I looked around, confused before seeing a Minato cosplayer waving at me. Again he called "TOBI!" So in the derpiest Tobi-like way I called : "Minato-sensei", waved back and ran to glomp him. What I didn't expect was for him to also run at me full speed! And because I'm still not so good at seeing through the one eye hole in the Tobi mask, ran smack right into him, then he lifted me up and swung me around several times in a bear-hug.
It seems that that mask was going to give me more problems that day. (As I can only see straight ahead, it is literally a "tunnel vision"). So....me being unable to see left or right walks onward, thinking the path was clear. Bad choice.....I walked right into none other than: Vic Mignogna himself xD
Boy....did I feel stupid after that. I sooooo hope nobody filmed that. Lots of apologies were said as well xD
More Tobi photo's were taken and then I walked over to the signing booth to get an autograph and photo from the big man
At around 4:30pm we left, feeling rather disappointed that it was all over, and went back to 's place where we then watched the animated movie: Rio. Then joked, talked, laughed and slightly fooled around before finally saying our goodbyes as BLOODSTORME had to work early in the morning.
Monday 12/11: Today after we packed everything back up into our bags we took the train to the airport then lounged around waiting for our 2:30 flight....we didn't start boarding until quarter to three xD
It was a rather quick flight though and even though I am missing SupaNova now, I'll know that there are so many more good times ahead. Hopefully I might be going to both SupaNova in Melbourne and Brisbane next year so....fingers crossed.
Thanks again guys for taking the time to read this,
Until next time
