Tracon 8+stuff

I was trying to figure out something cool to start with, but in the end I couldn't think anything...

This is a little report of my Tracon, last weekend at Tampere. I still don't have many of my cosplay, as the ones taken at the con are on Rewe's camera, and I'm waiting her to send them to me.

Original plan was to jump to the train, but Friday a friend made a Facebook status saying that their car still had space for one or two. So of course I took that! I arrived to Otaniemi around 8 am, and we started to pack the car. Rai had lots of stuff she was taking to Cosplay flea market held at con. I first thought we have to sit with boxes on our laps, but everything fit to the tailgate after all. Only that I had Hakyryuu's staff along, and so I had to sit on the middle seat with the fur thing in my nose l'D
We arrived to con, took Rai's stuff to the flea market place, and our own stuff to cloakroom. After that Rewe and I went to see a program called Magical Education. It was just about books and how they showed magic education in them, maybe a bit boring (at least not what I except it to be). After that food, some hanging around, seeing friends and photoshooting. Then I went to see cosplay competiton with my friends. Today was World Cosplay Summit, solo competition and Miss Meter. Right people won and placed for all competition ^^ Congratulations for everyone, especially for Ilona and Heidi for winning WCS preliminaries!!
After the competition I was thinking of finding friends, for example the one whose place I was going to stay over. A problem: my phone wouldn't work! It just had a white screen when I tried to open it. Thank god I found Dino who was on her way to see our friends' program, so I tagged along (I wasn't first planning to go to see it, but as the competition ended an hour earlier :'D). There I found other people as well, and after the lecture I was able to contact others with their help.
I was also planning to go to see Tampere's symphonic wind ensamble's anime consert and "Cosplay in Nordic Countries", but as I needed to go get food for my friend in art alley and we had our photoshoot that time, I couldn't make it. And I wanted to just hang around for a while, and not just run from program to another :'D

Hakuryuu: I liked this costume a lot. It was very comfortable, if you try to forget it was hot. What I need to fix: Crown. It wouldn't stay on my head and it was too big. I needed to go to buy some hair clips when we got to con so that I could get it stay place, and it still wanted to exude. I need to widen the black collar (and maybe do those patterings? But how, painting? Ideas?). The staff broke when we got back to Espoo, so I need to fix it. And also make that yellow... thing... below the blade.. Also I need to fix those red parts, as they were just ugly. And I need to do something to the corset-thingy! It kept rolling down all the time >_<
And next time, skin coloured binds/sport bra....
The fur thing is so much fun!!

I was supposed to take Mathilda along for Sunday, but because a frustration with her wig, I left her home.
Again early wake up, as Nani's shift at con started at 10. We got ready and headed out. We arrived to Tampere-talo a bit after 10 so I decided to go see a lecture "Evolution of Digimon-anime". They went trough the each season and gave their own opinions and what they thought of characters and so on. It was nice, but next to me sat a guy who was commenting things himself and to people sitting behind him ALL THE TIME!! He was calling the lecturers "amateurs" and snorting to their comments and saying that he couldn't get anything of their presentation. And he was lying on the floor (it was so full someone had to go to floor). So. Annoying. And rude. Anyways, as the program lenghtened I couldn't listen to the end (well, I only missed part of the Savers and whole Xros Wars, which I didn't even like, though it would have been nice to hear their opinion about it.) as I needed to go to next program. It was "Cosplay Around the World" held by Elffi, one of the most succesful male cosplayers in Finland, representing us in WCS in 2011, and Calssara, a guest from Germany, and represented her coutnry in WCS in 2009 and 2011 and in European Cosplay gathering in 2012. They have both visited in many countried thanks to cosplay. I'd like to go to foreign conventions ;^; who will come with me?  They talked about how people see cosplay in Asia, America and Europe, and about international contests.
Sunday there was also an cosplay competition, now Nordic Cosplay Championships preliminaries, skit competition and Hall Cosplay. Both who got to NCC were so awesome (another one (don't remember the character's name) was my favourite of all of them, her show was so nice and costume so cute <3). Also the top trio in skit competition were all my favourites as well! It was nice to see a Vocaloid show that wasn't Magnet or some Miku jumping around the stage. And Duke Venomania's Madness is <3 Flynn Rider was awesome. Nothing else to say.
After the competition it was a drive back home. Tiredness and hunger were great.
I don't have any pics form Tracon, but here's one from Desucon 2011!

Max: Well, Max is Max. I still love him <3 Wig is a bit itchy and both tightening hooks are broken, but other wise it's good. I should really make shoes for him. Maybe some day in future. I didn't take any pictures of him, as I hadn't added anything new. Well, the blade, tough it's Max's G-Rev blade :'D I'm gonna do that version of him some day!

Next up is Fanfest 5.-6.10 in Helsinki, which I just bought a ticket while writing this. I couldn't resist after all... After that Cosplay Bootcamp in Jyväskylä!
And now for something completely different:

IT'S A FREAKING RAINBOW CAKE!!! \o/ I have been planning to try this for a while already, and now I finally made it :D It's yummy! Inside an orange filling.
