Swing Dance

Anybody attend? I can't really describe what I was wearing ( it was a failed attempt at a trial cosplay of mine ) but I was in attendance. And once I gathered the courage to just start asking girls on the sidelines to dance ( a girl even asked me to dance. Didn't see that coming at all. Needs to happen more often XD ) I began to have the time of my life! Especially when Hit The Road Jack played, and I had a partner who pushed me around hah hah. Also learned some new moves from a few ladies who were patient with me ( an Applejack told me that I have the form of a ballroom dancer. She also told me to relax, which I swear to this day I still don't know how to not be tense >_> ) This needs to happen every year!

I showed up with some of my friends for the last hour or so, I was dressed as green-suit Lupin and was busy teaching most of my friends basic swing steps. We all had a blast, and loved the idea of a small adult getaway from the teenagers. I think it was really successful too- my group caused the hotel to run and get new armbands because the Otakon staff underestimated the amount of people who would show up. So I'm pretty sure they'll do this again in the years to come. My group is definitely gonna practice our steps in the following year and we might even do a swing-themed group cosplay like Baccano! or something.

A friend and I showed up not long before it ended because of a photoshoot, but from what we saw, it looked like everyone was having a good time. We had fun for the time we were there though, and if they do this again, I'll have to remember to not schedule anything too late so that we can enjoy it more!
