Con-Report: SVS

Hey everybody

So SVS was two days ago and I'm finally coming up for air. I still haven't unpacked that simply has to wait till I get home from school.
But I thought that I might as well make a con-report! I'm not going to post one on dA since I don't feel like writing two and I can't just copy-paste, because I'll add a lot of pictures here and I don't know how to get them in a journal on dA....

Bianca and I had agreed to travel to the con together, so after my last class we left for the con. At the central station we bumped into Ao, Niko, Oni and Roxy by accident and found out that Ao had a seat next to us on the train!
That meant we talked all the way to Jutland and I didn’t get to read anything on the trip and Bianca didn’t get to sleep xD
But we had fun xD

When we arrived at Herning station my grandfather was there to pick Bianca and I up and he drove us to the con, so we didn’t have to take the bus. When we arrived I found Risa, Shinji, Haru and some other whom I just checked in with, even though I had made a deal with Himo and Marie, but they weren’t there when I arrived and I had to get ready, so I dumped my things with Risa and Shinji and then went to change. Later I moved my things down to Himo and Marie.

As you might know I was Sho Friday and I was very in character. The cosplay were uncomfortable and annoying, though it could have been worse, but the nails were by far the worst. They were long and too curvy to fit my nails probably, so it was hard to keep them from falling of >_> I had a fit the first three-four times they broke off and nearly rage-quit them numerous times… But I didn’t
But all in all it made me kinda self-absorbed and since Shinji were very in character as Kyoko and kept picking on me, I kept picking bad, so we were like the perfect match xD It was so fun being Sho, I like being characters that think too much of themselves. I don’t know why, they just speak to me. Shinji also said that I was her “manly-man guy”

I haven’t seen any good pictures of Sho on facebook yet, so I’m taking the picture I have of him on my phone that Bára took of me xD

Much didn’t happen Friday. I walked around with Shinji and Ying most of the time and found some of my friends that I talked to. I couldn’t take any pictures because of my nails, which were a bummer, but guess that’s life. Even though the cosplay was uncomfortable I had a great time J

I woke around 6 a.m. the first time and ended up getting out of bed around 8:30. I went to the cafeteria to read, while I waited for some of my friends to show up. Nobody did, so I went back to Himo and Marie, whom had awakened while I was gone. Around 10 I finally got them out of bed and got changed into Mad Hatter.

Mad Hatter was probably my most comfortable cosplay at that con, but the one I had slacked most on. I actually only made the shirt frill. I had made the pants as well, but they are originally my Azazel pants xD I borrowed a jacket for Himo and Miku was so kind to make his hat for me~

But Mad Hatter wasn’t as comfortable as he could. When I had taken my contacts out Friday I had gotten something in my eyes and it just didn’t want to come out, so my eyes were very irritated. It didn’t help that the wigs bags was close to my eyes, which meant I sometimes got hair in my eyes. It didn’t help much x_x
But it meant that my eyes were very red which added to Mad Hatters sleepy look, so I didn’t mind that much. I changed in the guy’s changing room, because there weren’t anyone there when we arrived, but later on there came some in to bathe, but of course they didn’t want to bathe while I was there, but they didn’t want to throw me out either, so I had an audience while I applied my makeup xD It was weird ‘cause I’m not use to being watched, but fun at the same time.

Most of the day I walked around with different people and chatted with them. I also kidnapped a couple of people and took pictures of them. I got quite a few good ones~


I also went to the Dkos panel. Dkos is a new Danish cosplay magazine and it sounded so interesting and the idea behind it was very inspiring! It’s not a closed magazine, but a magazine that takes as many different contributes in as possible, so if you have something you want to show the world or get out of your system or help other cosplayers get better by tutorials Dkos is there to help you do that. I plan on writing them and let them know that I’m interested in helping them out as a photographer and maybe as a writer as well.

The cosplay show was AMAZING! There were only 16 groups, but the level was raised so much since last year! There were only a few bad acts and even they weren’t that bad. Of course there were a lot of different acts, some funny acts and some serious ones. But the best act by far was the Twisted Disney act! Damn those girls did well! The music was fantastic and the idea and the cosplays and the theme and the feeling I got when I watched it! Omg! I still get Goosebumps every time I watch it and the song is stuck in my head!

After the cosplay show I changed out of Mad Hatter, since I was tired of him and I helped Shinji out of her Arthur cosplay. Then I watched her play plushy-dead-ball, which was kinda weird since there were some confusion about what roles they played with. We went to bed around 2 a.m.

Sunday morning started pretty much the same as Saturday, except I didn’t get out of bed to read, it was simply too cold. Himo and I went to chance into Squalo and Belphegor. I was done quickly, since I didn’t have to put that much makeup on and I didn’t have a sword and stuff I had to put on as well xD But the changing room was so warm and it was no fun in pleader, so I left as soon as I were done.

Belphegor was fun. The thing in my eyes were gone, so my eyes weren’t annoyed all the time and though it was hot it was actually more comfortable than I had expected it to be, so I was very happy and full of energy, which meant I became quite annoying when we went on a photoshoot xD I’m sure Camilla (Our Xanxus) wanted to kill me.

Again I just walked around and took pictures of people and again I got some good ones



I haven’t gotten any pictures of my Bel yet, so you will have to wait for them. They will probably be on my dA or on Himo’s.

Most of the day were kinda a blur. I walked and talked with a lot of people, watched Shinji play a bit of Last Man Standing and then the Hobo-cosplay competition, which was fun xD

Then it was time to pack and leave. I found Bianca and changed to some regular clothes. My grandfather came to pick us up. We spend a little over an hour and a half at his place, got some food and I got a shower, before we had to leave to catch our train.
Bianca and I watched some videos she had recorded at the con and then the Twisted Disney act I had recorded and all the pictures I had taken and ate a lot of candy.

 We talked all the way back to our station, where we got picked up by our parents.

And that was pretty much my con. It was fun and it was good to see all my wonderful friends again. The only things I didn’t like about the con are the coldness in the dormitories and the food they serve in the cafeteria. But all in all it was a good con.
