Katsucon was alright this year. A good chunk of all 3 days was running around either going places, taking forever to get in cosplay, waiting for shoots, waiting for people, finishing props and cosplays at the con and other misc things and I didn’t NEARLY spend enough time just hanging out with people.
Don’t get me wrong, it was great seeing people and cosplaying with them (I even saw some people I didn’t think I’d see again), but jesus I was really stressed for most of it. Nothing explicitly bad happened: no drama, no horror stories (even with the BBYO there throwing skittles at some of my friends and the whole human chain bullshit blocking the closest elevators to my hotel room), yet nothing really “made my convention”.
I tried to do too many things and I didn’t have enough time or preparation to complete them all, and it made me even more stressed than I already was when I didn’t complete them so I couldn’t enjoy what little down time I had. Simple as that.
And as a side note, that cosplay video I tried to put together? Didn’t have a camera stablizer, too cold to film outside and the Gaylord was fucking overcrowded so we couldn’t film there, and not enough people showed up for me to work with besides. So, that thing isn’t going to be a thing anymore and I apologize and thank you guys so much for showing interest and giving your time at the con.
