I'm sitting here...talking to this sophomore from school...not getting anything done...at all. I'm really tired and not motivated, but I wanted to do homework tonight. So I will do homework tonight. Except I have to write a page or so on this quote that I barely understand enough to write about it. It's BS time, yo.

I love this utter lack of time consuming homework, right after midterms, and right before a trip to Times Square for the entire day tomorrow. I get to sleep on the bus~!

So I went to HalCon this past weekend and rocked my One Penn Plaza cosplay. I entered the costume contest as Intermediate, and was one of the few people to do an actual short performance instead of just a walk-on, which the audience ate right up.

So they announce the winners of the costume contest. The three intermediate winners are called, and I'm not one of them. I have to admit, I was disappointed- the winners didn't look any better than me. I felt a bit like the architects of New York's "X-Y-Z" Buildings, after the client turned his nose up at the three finished towers. "I was heartbroken, but what the hell, we had done our best."

They said that they had a ton of honorable mentions, but didn't have time to read them off. Afterward, I talked to the lady in charge of the costume contest, and she told me that one, I had been upgraded to the Master's category. Two, I had earned an honorable mention.
Wow. That certainly took the sting off!
Is an honorable mention in the Master skill level something to be proud of?

Edit- Sakura, you get to go to Times Square tomorrow? I am jealous! I've been home from my trip to NYC for two weeks and I miss the place. In fact, I started missing NYC the minute my plane took off for home.

Amanita congrats! I'd say an honerable mention in a Masters category is fantastic! I mean... it's almost like winning the intermediate category! That must have been awesome that you got bumped up =D

On another note... why are there more asshats on coscom...

Sounds like something to be proud of to me!

That is AWESOME, congratulations!

haha, yeah, it's our second trip to NY this year. I guess we're pretty lucky to be an hour and a half away.
I guess you live pretty far from here? D:

Where can I view photos of all these building cosplays?

I'm massively curious and demand satisfaction!

I've had my share of asshat encounters lately, including one who said that designing and wearing a costume like my latest project would suggest that I am "crazy and to be avoided". And that making a couple of mentions of my costuming plans suggested that it was consuming my life and I was obsessed.
Here's the awful, scary costume in question. It's also the one that won me that honorable mention:


I live in Canada, about a 2 hour's plane ride away. It's saving up for the hotel that's the hard part, I like nice places- New Yorker Hotel FTW! And next year, I think I'm gonna cosplay as Chrysler Building, I had too many requests not to!

You're no more of an oddball than a great number of people here, Amanita.

One thing confuses me: is One Penn Plaza a Sith or a Jedi?
