Flying in Friday afternoon~ Because I live far enough away now that I have to fly. >.<
twenty-some hours in a car by myself does not seem appealing. And it was a horrible drive last year...

ilu Saki, but why do you fly all the way out to Portland for Kumo? Or are you just from Portland?

Me and my ex lived in Eugene for eight months, and had been planning on going the entire time we were out there. So when we moved back to Ootah, we drove up last year. And I fell in love with the con. So now I'm skipping my home con, which is the weekend after, because I like this one so much more. 8D

No problem! The people who run that Taobao shop actually have an eBay store.

Ahahaha. . . I slept the time I could've been sewing yesterday away. ;A; Someone kill me now.

Mad jelly of all you who are done. I'm down to trimming two wigs, styling one, and sewing pieces together because I thankfully managed to get everything but two skirts cut out before crashing, and ugh there's still so much to do.
Which I should be doing. Instead my mind's decided now is the perfect time to read Ghost Story without stopping. Ffffffuuu-

I'm excited but also nervous. I slept through a class I'm missing on Friday and I'm only allowed three absences before my grade drops down. Meaning, I have exactly one more chance before I get marked down. ._.;; On the bright side, my buddy is accompanying me to the train station because I have to be there at 9 pm on Thursday.

btw, Shi, my train is coming in around 12. You can check the times online to see if it's late, etc. It's train 11. I think.
D: Oooh. And okie dokie Loki~ We're likely going to leave pretty early anyway, since we need to hit Sunrise for zori and White Rabbits, and my mother's is both a lot more paranoid about time and convinced we're going to get lost finding the train station. Even if I can find my way 99% of the time so long as we remember to print out a map.

@otakunobody Added on to Miria's above statement, Fantasy Sheep also accepts direct orders via email, and if I remember right, it is a lot cheaper to go directly through them than to use their eBay. If you weren't opposed to TaoBao, though, I could drum up a list of wigs/shops that are pretty good quality when I'm done with my sewing storm. :3

To all those who showed up to the shoots, thank you for being amazing, behaving, and being understanding. You are all wonderful people and I'm proud to be part of this fandom. <3

The thread for next year will be created a little bit later this week, so once again, thank you so very much, and I hope next year is just as fun. c:

Seconding this and throwing in some more:

Thank you all so much. You guys were great. You were all respectful of other people's wishes and their feelings, and Shi and I wanted to <3 you all when you cheered when we asked you not to make rape jokes. Seriously. That was truly heartwarming. You guys are as awesome as the great Prussia.

I don't care what people say; the Hetalia fandom isn't nearly as bad as what people say. We love you all and you are amazing people.

Yeah, I did it for a couple years. Although Charly did the second shoot last year 'cause I was doing Avatar that day.

It's mostly a question of projection and confidence. Whoever's best at enunciating loudly and won't let themselves be railroaded will find it easiest to run the shoot. Unless the size has dropped a lot, in which case it doesn't matter as much.

I would run the shoot and I have a loud voice. But meh, I don't know if you guys would want me to run it. =/

Thing is, consistency does help. Last year's shoots ran so fluidly as Malaria ran it the year before, and when we picked it up this year we ended up running into a couple snags that experience does help smooth over. I am willing to admit there were problems with the shoots this year, such as arriving late and the fact that I didn't have a pen to make requests smoother and less hectic, but a couple things popped up that needed to be resolved before the shoot happened, and by the time they were ironed out (in one case, literally), we ended up a tad late since we had to run from the Red Lion to the park. All of which are resolvable with minor fixes, and will be.

Anyway, we did take things from this year, and as we'll also be attending Fanime & AX before Kumori next year, so we'll add on the experience we gain from participating and examining those shoots to further improve next year's shoots.


I also wouldn't be surprised if we end up having someone else run one of them, as we have next year pretty packed with cosplay diversity, panels, & personal shoots.

Your first Hetalia shoot has to be messy! Or else how will you learn! The shoot in '09 was a rained-out, fire coded, haphazard nightmare, and every shoot I've done since then has at least been better than that, if not always actively good.

Even more so that you cobbled it together~

@otakunobody: Sorry this took a bit longer than I thought, but I ended up weeding out the wigs from shops I haven't purchased from yet, and I wasn't quite sure if you were aiming more towards natural or cartoon-ish in color. ;^;
