Thanks to A-Konners!

As I'm writing this, it's Sunday morning and my Akon attendance is over for the weekend. I saw tons of amazing, inspiring costumes, and enjoyed them all. I just wanted to thank everyone I met from the board and let you all know how great it was to finally get a chance to talk to you, esp. Eurobeat King, psythe, and Rosiel; and to see more of you that I didn't get a chance to speak to (Kell, Die-chan) and hope to catch at the next event. For me that will be Otakon, and I hope to be a lot more "present" since I won't be at the mercy of someone else's schedule. Cheers to everyone!

I have to admit I have MUCH more fun at this one than last year because I participated more (although my heartless costume was a little ghetto.. didn't get quite enough time to get my act together.. oii).

But dunno if she'll read this... Halloween Sora we (moogle, heartless, Squall, and Yuffie) were gunna do a skit with but never found, we seriously looked all over for you until about 545, when we found the other KH group, and thought that was it. *hangs head* sorry so much.. we looked all over.

Randomness though-- anyone else enjoy the Mega-Chii beating down Bill Gates as much as I?

Koumori, I hate that I missed seeing you & your Belldandy! I saw you from far away in the dealer's room but couldn't get over to you >< It was so crowded and noisy everywhere it was hard to find anyone sometimes... :\

Whee! It was fun meeting so many of you. Aeris, Admin, Nessa, Rosiel, Kell, Makoto, Ringo, Khet Tcheba, Eurobeat King... I know there are tons of other there, but I either a) didn't see you, or b) didn't recognize you. Ah well, some other time ^_^. I've decided I'm not going to go to A-Kon next year and save my funds for Anime Expo... is it just me or is A-Kon rather... err... unorganized? It doesn't seem that anything ever runs on schedule, and it's kinda pissing me off. It's been like that all 3 years I've been to A-Kon, and I'm just not going to waste my money on it next year.

Hopefully I'll see you all again sometime! It was fun!

I loved A-Kon! ^_^ It was my first, and I had a blast! It was a little disorganized, yeah, and I was totally disappointed that Fred Gallagher (MegaTokyo) wasn't going to be there, but everyone was so nice and the cosplayers were awesome!

You guys will see me again at A-Kon 15, as Trinity once again ^_^

^_^ Thank you! I enjoyed the con so much! People kept asking if they could give me hugs :3

I think I saw you once or twice... I need to buy five disposable cameras or something when I go again, I wanted more pictures of everyone!

Koumori

It was great to meet you. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello to the troops . I was disappointed that you ditched our party though . We were up till 4AM kicking people out!. It was a blast and I think those who attended enjoyed themselves. I am not sure if we will be doing another party next year though because you guys can get pretty crazy when you have a few beers in ya!

As for the rest of the con it was a little crowded for my tastes and I think I went up and down the stairs one too many times. Some of the smells reminded me of the guys locker room in high school...ahh the good ole days. Some of the costumes just blew me away (Kell's Yuffie, the Colonial Marines from Aliens, the Transformer etc...). Ya'll continue to amaze me with your talents. Hopefully I will see several of you at Dragon Con in August... if not I will catch ya at A*Kon 15.

Kell, same here - I saw you at the masquerade but missed you afterwards! But I'm sure I'll finally get to chat with you soon.

And Lance, I TOTALLY wanted to come to your party, but SO was sick and she was driving. She even mentioned it the next day. Dangit. :P
