battlescars and post-con recoveries

Well, I just checked a scale and I did lose a little weight. That's kinda scarey...I'm under 100 lbs officially now. (Must quickly go order Chinese food...) Yes, direct sunlight + Darcia costume = instant diet...It's amazing I survived like six hours in that thing - I was expecting I'd give in after one or two.

So I hope everyone out there is sleeping and eating properly again. And Lilli better be taking a nap right now. (I hope you made it home okay and that I didn't give you really messed up directions in the middle of the night, there ^_^*)

I think I slept a total of 4 hours the entire weekend and ate an egg mcmuffin, a small bag of candy that came in a gashpon I bought, a bottle of pepsi, code red, and fruit works for the entire weekend ^_^;

I thank everyone in Line on Saturday. I got my meals from the varios cookies and candies they gave to me for handing them registration forms. ^_^

Though yeah....I seem to have lost some extra pounds myself. x-x
Its not too bad, though. Its just fat, right?
Lifting those wings gave me a bit more muscle. Yay for wings!

Thanks to Ayaka's mom who *literally* brought us 2 small suitcases of food, we were pretty well fed for the entire weekend.

However, I am glad that I'm back to a normal sleeping schedule... well, normal for me anyway. ;-)

So for the next con we are *so* packing food, drinks, etc to feed a small army. :)

My parents make sure there is enough food, but I refused to eat while I was there. Especially when I was wearing the Dizzy outfit(too self-consious), I had some stuff afterwards in the con suite but it wasn't really anything. My breakfast consisted of a little carton of milk, and my lunch was part of a Nestle Bananna milk, and then dinner was basically finishing the bottle of bananna milk(split with cousins) and a few carrots +broccoli. Dang this makes me sound so anorexic. I was too occupied to eat, and forgot. I got back weighing 89 pounds. It is only water weight though that I lost, I don't really think there should be anything I should be losing. I caught up on eating all today though. Probably back up to 90s. Yeeeeeah Dim-sum! for lunch and then Thai food for dinner!! ^-^

I think I lost a bit of weight though I haven't checked to make sure . . . I didn't sleep or eat too badly, in comparison to other cons. The con suite was a big help for me this year. Dunno why I've never gone before! It's wonderful of ACen to do that, and it was also a cool way to chill with new people.

And while I didn't contribute significantly to feeding cosplay.com people, I *did* give a box of goldfish crackers Irvy left in our room to Merle-kun (though I didn't recognize him out of costume! O_O *feels stupid*).

On the battlescars front, I am featuring a rather nasty cut/raw area on the back of one ankle from Toboe's boots. ><

Not only are the Chii's feet completely ruined for about a week, but my hand (Link) is officialy nerve-dead.

That and we never got more than a few hours sleep. It's cool though, I just slept while driving home.

ouch, I feel sorry for your feet and hand.

I wanted to see your Chii costume...or did I, I guess my memory is pretty bad. I also tried finding your shop in the convention center and no luck.

I too would like to thank Ayaka's mum for bringing those suitcases full of grub! It was mucho appreciated. ^^

As for battlescars, I got attacked by some psycho Urd cosplayer. I don't know what the hell was wrong with her, but scratching at me and kicking my knee (hard enough to leave a bruise) was NOT appreciated.

I heard stories about other cosplayers getting attacked by creeps... what a violent con this was! >_<

Despite the brainstemless morons who cannot differentiate between fictional characters and real people cosplaying them, I had a great time at ACen on account of all the Sakura Taisen goodness and seeing various friends and acquaintances again.
