Here's the forecast from the Portland National Weather Service...

Saturday: Areas of morning clouds and patchy fog otherwise sunny. . Highs around 65. Northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

I like that forecast... Except that Sunday's looks zounds better...

Sunday: Mostly sunny. Highs 70 to 75. Northeast wind 5 to 15 mph.

I almost feel robbed. Hopefully they're wrong and Saturday hugs the 70 degree mark.

...How many of us are going? This is going to be a huge meet up apparently... I'm guessing 20 to 30 people.

I'll be there too. If you want to find me I'll be wearing a pair of bright red plastic trousers that have holes in them and garrish pink ribbons drooping around my knees. I will hop on one foot during all hours that are odd and I'll be skateboarding during all hours that are even. I'll be carrying a large Stalin plushie and wearing a fake mustache from the hours of 2-4. I will also smell of stinky fish, because I will be wearing an authentic Great White Shark as a hat. Hope to see you guys there!  8)

I'm still hoping to be there, even though it looks like I might not even be able to afford to. :sigh: But I'll be there. (And I'll be giving out the Mini Moni Documents to the first 10 people who ask me about it) I'll be wearing mostly red, and near a banana suit.. And I'll have a basket of strawberries. Fake ones. Covered in glitter

Alrighty, I'll be going for sure! ^.^ It turns out that one of my friends is going with me, and she'll be dressed as Mamimi from FLCL. I'm still not sure if my other friend is going though. We'll be sure to make our way over to the Kumoricon booth!

Don't hesitate to say hi. ^^

It's really up in the air if I end up going or not. I've been depressed and lazy this last week and procrastinated on outright asking for a ride.

Where do you live? Perhaps someone on the forum could help? I'd offer, but I don't even have a car myself, so I'm riding the max.

I live out in Milwaukie... The joys of being unemployed and poor... They never cease to amaze me.

Who knows if I need a ride or not, I might have one, I might not. I just hope my friend got my messages that I left for him to see if he can take me and my girlfriend.

She's coming in her half finished Asuka Langley Sohryu cosplay... Namely, she'll be wearing her yellow sundress that she wore last K-Con.

As for myself, I'll be wearing cut-off Khaki shorts, probably my dark Chinese Dragon over-shirt and a white t-shirt... And will have headphones on.

Looks like my girlfriend, Smith and myself (maybe one other) might be there as well. I've been up all night so I don't miss this event! So I'll be even LESS intelligable. Oh and yeah... I'm coming in the aforementioned stuff.

Be there later though, like, 11am to noon.

That was pretty fun....I only spent two hours there though, my friend's mom wanted to leave and wouldn't let us stay.
The food was really yummy, I loved those fish waffle things x333
Anyways yeah, I got sunburnt on my face! Geez, one day it pours and the next it's sunny and warm. -__- I haven't gotten a sunburn for like, 2 years. I don't like it, either.

That was wicked awesome. I enjoyed the first Taiko group as well. The food was everywhere. I wasn't even hungry and I kept eating things left and right! *_* I blame that stupid wind.....it kept blowing the smells over to me whenever the yakisoba guy started cooking.

And then I went on an eating adventure...I picked out something from inside the store. Couldn't read any of the label and I didn't recognize it by sight....not even sure what it was after eating it, but it was sweet and yummy!

It was really nice meeting you people from the forums. I know I didn't say anything at all (pretty much), but I'm just not good at making new friends. I get so nervous and shy and klutzy. Gah!

I was very flustered getting my picture taken, and now I'm regretting not getting my picture taken with the Mario cosplayer who was there (I was too embarrased to walk up and ask).

All in all it was very fun!

I can't wait for Kumoricon now!!!!! :D

Oh...haha, I didn't get my picture taken because I was cosplaying or anything. I was dressed in normal clothes, with a small black cap, a dark brown button up shirt, a neon green tank top, jeans and flip-flops. I got my picture taken by the gals running the booth because I entered into and got third place in the mascot contest. Lol. I didn't really stand out in the crowd much. ^^;

I guess I'll write a report about it...

Sakura Festival at Uwajimaya Event Report.

Day 1. Saturday.

I had the pleasure of staying up all night the night before... Anyone who saw me probably noted that I looked dead tired. There's no thrill in life like playing Super Mario Kart for two or three hours just to stay up so you don't miss a few important things.

Anyways, right around 11am I leave my house to head down to the post office to send some stuff that needed to be sent pretty much ASAP. When I get down to the post office in Milwaukie... It was closed -_- Great... Well, after finding out the one in Milwaukie was closed, I went to the one in Oak Grove. It was open so everything was hunky dory, problem is this made me late when it came to getting to the Sakura Festival.

I get back home and my ride to the event was there already. I grab a few (un)necessary things, two 2 liters of Pepsi, my collection of CDs and my CD player and we head out to pick up my girlfriend who decided to wear her Asuka Langley Sohryu costume.

After picking her up we back tracked a little to pick up another friend of ours, she was wearing a pink kimono with a yellow... Obi... I think that's the name of it. After a few minutes, we leave for the event at... This was around 12:30.

On the way there, I decided it'd be fun to head bang to what was in the stereo of the car... I'm surprised I was able to do it for as long as I did though. We arrive at the Festival around 1-ish, drop my girlfriend and our other friend off and drive off to find a parking space, which we were lucky enough to find in a short amount of time.

When we (my friend and I) get to the event, we spend the first few minutes looking for the K-Con booth... To find that it was a tent (which was pretty sweet if you ask me.) Both of us just sort of hang around the tent for an hour without really saying anything, just sort of "menacing" I suppose. Eventually my friend (Smith) decided to introduce himself to the people working the booth (forgot who it was at that time... My memory is teh suckz right now) and we all chat for a little bit.

Honestly, I came with the hopes that there was going to be a group luncheon thing at the restaurant that was there. The luncheon did happen, but not with as many people as I had hoped and pretty much no one I don't know and consider a friend. It was still fun nonetheless and the food was both inexpensive and really good. Restaurant there definately did not leave me with a bad impression.

A few more things happened, such as headbanging some more at the K-Con tent to the band that was playing. Getting... Spindrift, I believe it was, some yakisoba (or whatever those people in the tent were making that smelled so good) and a bit of restaurant shenanigans.

We leave around 4:30-5-ish so we can attend another event, all with fairly good memories of the event and glad that we got to talk to everyone that we did. I still need to sign up for the convention though -_-

Props:
Meeting some K-Con people
Hanging out for a short time in the tent
Con chair's blue hair O_o
Staying up all night
Playing Super Mario Kart
Eating at that restaurant whose name escapes me
Headbanging
Girlfriend cosplaying my favorite character
Restaurant shenanigans
Gorgeous day
Yakisoba tent
And more I doubt I can remember because of...

Slops:
Being an idiot and staying up all night
Going crazy after doing bad at Tetris Attack and Mario Kart
...Warm... Flat... Pepsi... It tasted like chocolate >.>
Incorrectly predicting the weather (I predicted partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-60s. Got the temperature about right, but it was crystal clear and blustery too.)
Being broke
Yakisoba tent (nothing like having a wasp chase you around >.> Not to mention that the tent itself made me hungry.)
Not signing up for the convention
Headbanging (fun as it was, I have a wicked headache and my neck is killing me already)
Me being an idiot for a number of reasons
Kylite for not feeling good
Anyone else who couldn't come for various reasons, ain't hating y'all, just saying it'd been cool if you came, even if I didn't know you

Overall, an awesome event. I wish it wasn't just ONCE a year... But I believe we have a couple more Uwajimaya events that happen this year, specifcally the Uwajimaya festival that happens in October or something like that.

Alright peeps, I'm sort of out... Lates.

Doh I skipped a line of your report when I saw the word tetras.


Mmmm warm flat Pepsi.  

Rich, thick, delicious, nutritious, life giving Pepsi, nectar of the gods, sweet brown ambrosia!

You said you took two what happened to the other?

One time on the way to shoot things we stopped at the store and I came out with two 2 liter Pepsi bottles nestled in my arms like tender babies and my friend Pheasant Head waited until we were in the parking lot full of country bumbkins to point and shout  “Look Dan has a pair of Jugs”

HI guys! Sakura Festival was a blast!  Hatake, I also got a sunburn, not on my face because I had spf in my face lotion but on the side of my neck and my chest, it really hurts too and I am not quite sure how it happened because my shirt was not at all low cut.

Let's see who did I meet, yukimizu and her friend who is not on the forums but wore a banana costume, Megumi, Megan, Heidy, Daxe, Xaam, NEKO-CHAN!, Super jaz although we already met once, Seraph, Yamcha and his girlfriend and Smith, Tom, giant stick of Pocky, hmm.. There were many others too and I want to thank you all for making the day memorable!

Let's see what sots of things did I experience:
Ramune for the first time
Fishy waffles
Green Tea pocky
Yummy gyoza
Mint water!
Being given shoes by Heidi
Wearing cat ears and not being laughed at
Giving lot of huggies, those always make a day better
Fun arts and crafts time with Megan
Watching the fishy game, that was sad yet interesting
Meeting the wonderful con staffers who very immediately accepting
Really good karate demonstrations
Gawking at the incredibleness which is uwajimaya
and being in Beaverton for the first time!

Vondan, I believe there may have been some eligible aunties in the crowd but I am not positive as to whether we convinced them to make it to the con.

Damn I stayed in Eugene to work, although I did take the time to e-mail “some one“ who meets ALL my requirements about using the Shakespeare tickets I have and “collaborating” on a art project.  But damn it she may have gotten a BF in the 2 weeks since I thought I should ask her out.  She looked too nerdy to actually talk to a man damn it.  Should have asked her to the Sakura Fest 3 weeks ago, if I had been all cranked up on Pepsi I would have but no soda in 7 weeks.

@ Leashy

*Looks through photos* OMG!! You were the one who took the photo of me!! *glomps* It was so much fun talking with you and the other gal you were running the booth with. (I'm sorry I'm not sure what her name is..) And you gave me free Pocky! That was so funny hearing someone yell, "Catgirl!" at me. ^_^ Thanks for making my visit to the Sakura Festival memorable!

..I look stoned in that picture. XD

I had such a fun time! At first I was really nervous about arriving and looking like I was the only one in cosplay, but after awhile I just got into it. I had two older adults stop me and ask me why I was dressed in a costume. So I briefly tried to explian the term 'cosplay'. I also had another person (Besides Leashy) recognize me and ask for a picture. (Which made my day as well!) I also had this woman and her son stop me and asked why I was dressed as a 'kitty'. (I'm not supposed to be a 'kitty' but whatever..) I then replied that I was supposed to be a 'hedgehog'. The woman then replied with, "Oh! Like Sonic. You're supposed to be the other one." I then nodded. The woman then said, "Oh, but you walk so slow." I then just pointed to my black boots and said, "Well... it's not easy to walk around in these."

I also had some shaved ice! It was so good. ^^ The only problem was that I couldn't really take off my gloves, because it takes me forever to get them on. So I'm sitting down and eating my shaved ice really carefully. I was relieved that I didn't get any on my gloves or white fur.

It was cool to see other people in cosplay as the day went on. I had to convince my FMA-crazed friend to go take a picture of the Greed cosplayer, as well as the Edward and Alphonse cosplayers. She's so shy! ^_^

Overall it was a great experience! I loved every minute of it. And now I'm all psyched for the con.

What really sucks is I still don't know who a lot of you were. It's hard to match up forum people and real-life people. Of all you guys hanging around the tent, I don't know who's who! I know the Publicity people, and Tom's kind of hard to miss, but that is all. And I wanted to meet someone who wanted to be our charity auction manager this year, but never figured out who it was or if she even showed.

But the sun made Meg's freckles come out, she looked so kawaii!

oishii, was that you with the PSP? I remember Yamcha headbanging, but didn't understand why.

I was wearing my t-shirt that said "I am ninja, you can't see me" on it, so you didn't see me :)

Not really, I just didn't hang out at the booth the whole time, really only between doing other stuff.
