my boyfriend said the same; usually I'll just use my Visa card, actually, but since I made two big purchases and had the money saved in paypal already, no point not using it. I just didn't see early enough that they'd raises prices by five bucks and I sure don't want a measly $ charge on my card to collect interest over several months while I pay off the other couple hundred I owe.

Lol, it sure was fun ^.^ Not going to lie, my 2 friends totally made that Saturday night the most memorable moment I have EVER had at a con! I'm lucky to have such good friends that I can drag on stage with me

On a related note, the con is called Anime Apocalypse. When I youtube search the con, I would say about 40% or so of the videos from the convention are videos of us doing Gangnam Style on the stage, or practicing around the convention XD Even had people ask us on Saturday if we were going to do Gangnam Style again, as well as people around the con talking about us. I wanted to leave an impression on the first year of Anime Apocalypse, and it seems like we did!

Learned from somebody that supposedly we were sort of all over Tumblr too during the weekend. Lol, not quite sure how Tumblr works exactly though XD

I think Anime Apocalypse gave me the most epic photo as Lucy yet. I didn't even realize the photo came out so epic until someone posted it on my Facebook.

Credit belongs to photographer.

Anime Apocalypse was really an epic first year convention. I had such a blast and I think I'll be going back next year.

For now, my attention shall focus on Kaname Chidori and getting her pieces correct for Anime Midwest.

Also, I hate watching my brother play Borderlands because I am now itching to do a Tiny Tina cosplay. -.-

Soon, I will be making cosplays from scratch <3

Sweet! My Mom got me a gift certificate for the local fabric store. I'm gonna go buy fabric for Hijikata and Slade. ^^ Then my stepdad said he's going to give me more money because he broke my 70$ bottle of perfume and I used my birthday money to replace it so more money for fabric!~ yay.

Yesterday, my Slade zentai suit and Barnaby wig came in the mail. XD Now to wait for everything else, hopefully sometime this week. ^^

Woohoo! $50 for fabricland will finish the last stuff I need for Twilight Sparkle and Quorra, and probably cover most or all my fabric for my winged elf. And Mom and her boyfriend said even if it's a belated present they'll get me at least some of the turkey feathers I need for the wings.

Well do you have a regular debit card? Or your bank account? Cuz that way it's just paid and not something you have to 'pay back' ... but it's up to you, just trying to help ^^;;

yeah, I've got a debit card obviously, but since I set up my visa card with my paypal, the extra transfer thing's pretty well unneeded. But AN's 15,000 weekend pre-reg tickets have certainly never sold out in a mere week, so I just have to wait an extra week.

Was completely lazy. Should be working on something now, as the con is in about a week and a half, but...food coma.
