Notes of a Manticore #40: Ayacon Rest and Response

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 20, 2013, 6:22 PM
Hi Everyone!

It's been a long time since I put a submission for a journal through and mostly because I've been keeping myself preoccupied with Ike and Prepping for Ayacon!

First on the news: I'm a graduate! Huzzah! I graduated on the 25th of July from Brunel University! And now I've been hunting for jobs. So far its been a dead end so far but hope turned around after I left Ayacon. Which is kinda sad in some weird way. 

Now! Ayacon Breakdown!

My dear friend Luke had to drop out because of work commitments, and it really bummed me out when I heard he couldn't come with me. It was the one thing keeping me on track with cosplays, to make sure that I had finished it and made Luke proud. But I was so bummed, and instead we took my good friend Emmy (FairyPorchQueen Cosplay) and AJ Charlton along to Ayacon and it was both their first and last time (Horray! LOL Mee too)

So we arrived on Thursday meeting up with :icondarrynonline: whom picked us up from the station and then from there stuff really started to snowball. Me and Aaron when to the Gym early in the morning and got SOAKED to death!

Then more photoshoots over the Friday then followed up with the EPIC YAOI PANEL! lol it was funny as fuck and I can't believe how much I laughed! Even did some voice overing and competing! Which has made me spur on to do a panel with :icondalish-patry:!

Saturday was also amazing as well, with :iconmanjou: and :iconasukauk: doing Femshep and Garrus with me at the Masquerade, we mananged to meet up with a Liara, another Garrus and Shepard again, and then after that did the night shoot with AJ Charlton and :iconkanikaniza: 

Here are some photos from the day

Congrats on graduating, wish I'd known we could use the gym whilst we were there and I knew you were dropping in as I missed my workouts and had no one to go with!  Hope things improve for you soon.
