rinkatink: (OH HAI GUYZ)
[personal profile] rinkatink
Back from the festivities of our local Aki-Con ventures this past weekend! For a first year, it was admittedly a much more decent experience than I initially expected, and I had the extreme pleasure of meeting [livejournal.com profile] friskavk in the flesh. Additionally, my good friend Yoriko stopped in that last Sunday and we decided to become camwhores and hit up a personal photoshoot. She was our precious Pikachu while I was the lass in the Lucario hoodie via [livejournal.com profile] usakochan's glorious productions. ♥

Our protagonists! Yoriko, again, our precious Pikachu on our left and myself, the Lucario, via right. We're out on a quest to locate our respective trainers! ♥

Given that technology seems to be the most reliable resource available, Pikachu takes a crack at calling up Ash.

Given by her expression, that didn't seem to pull off so well.

We then head on over to what appears to be a mode of transportation. Yet as hard as we try, we can't seem to get our vehicle started.

Lucario uses Gust! But Lucario can't learn Gust...

Suddenly driven by inspiration, Pikachu jumps on the grand piano.

Lucario gives it a crack.

Fountain GET!

Apparently though, fountains seem to call for reminiscing.

Even Lucario feels the blues.

Amidst all this doom-and-gloom, there appears to be antlers growing out of Lucario's head.

It's time for a break: Dinner Time!

In this day and age, even Pikachu is a huge texter!

Our duo makes one final somber stop one floor above.

Pikachu really seems to miss Ash...

But she was always quite the light-hearted creature! ♥

It's still rainy on Lucario's end of things though.

Lucario really seems to miss Sir Aarin.

In the end though, Pikachu manages to brighten one last picture! Literally!

Game FINISH! ♥

Other than that, I didn't grab nearly as many pictures of the actual event, surprisingly enough. Here's a few choice shots that I did grab meanwhiles for the curious:

Code Geass: Suzaku & Lelouch | Code Geass: Suzaku & Lelouch (Close-Up)
Pokemon: Team Galactic - Commander Mars
Batman - The Dark Knight: Joker | Gurren Lagann: Kamina & Yoko
Gurren Lagann: Simon (Epic Drill Pose)
Legend of Zelda: Malon | Legend of Zelda: Zelda & Midna | NANA: Nana
Devil May Cry: Nero | Resident Evil: Umbrella Soldier
Princess Tutu: Princess Tutu

Yoriko, I, and a few other fantastic friends will also be attending the upcoming Sakura-Con near mid-2009. I'm imagining I'll be bringing Lucario again for the ride, finish up my Riley (Gen) costume to couple up with Yoriko's own planned Lucario, and a few non-Pokemon-related cosplay others. Hope to see some of you beautiful people there! ;D

Why has no one commented on this yet??

I never really cared about Pikachu or Lucario much, but then... wow! The costumes are great! Maybe it's the way she's posed, but Lucario sort of looks like some kind of sentai hero sitting by the fireplace. Those lunches look really good too, 'specially the sandwiches. :9

Lucario must be awfully sad to make it rain inside. I hope she finds Aaron, but with a pithy reward of only 3.14 (barely enough for a slice of pi), he who finds Lucario may be better off just keeping her!

Hahaha! Perhaps we scared everyone off with our hideous mugs! >:D

Thanks, as always, for your precious comments! It was a blast running around the convention in these, especially since they were extremely comfortable (Yoriko actually typically opts her Pikachu costume, which is actually an official Halloween costume, as pajamas), and it's always great to hear a few good words. I only wish I had actually made mine. D;

My perspective of Lucario's largely based off the movie, but he always struck me as a much more serious dramatic character, rather than lovely cutesy Pikachu, so I tried to stay "in-character" persay for the guy. Sentai hero, indeed!

And hey, long time no see!

Aw, thank you so much! Unfortunately, neither one of us actually made our own costumes, mine was made by the talented [livejournal.com profile] usakochan and Yoriko's Pikachu is actually an official Halloween costume that she bought somewhere, according to her. Thank you ever so much again though for the kind compliments! ♥

Buy your ticket, buy your ticket! I bought mine smack dab on the 31st so I got to knock off a decent extra $5, and last I checked, it's currently $45 till they make their final deadline decision. DO IT! >:D

And I'm curious, will you be there all three days? Are you staying at a hotel? Are you cosplaying? Details! ♥

Oho! I'm afraid I've only attended Sakura-Con for the past recent three years, so I salute you as only a newbie can admire a veteran! ♥

I'm still torn about whether to reserve a room at the Sheraton or not, simply because I live nearby as well (just one quick bus ride coming from the U-District), but if I can grab enough serious interest from some friends here for a room, I might opt that way. I'd love to attend the late night events instead of having to run home before it gets dark (and it's nice to have a place to dump all your merch). ;3

I'm afraid I have no idea who Junsu is, but if you do Hikari, that'd be fantastic! I also cosplayed as Haruka at Aki-Con, but I'm not sure if I'll bring her to Sakura-Con this coming year... we should totally get the guys together and do a photoshoot!

ASLDKFJASDLF! I know and love this song! God, I feel so outdated with my Korean heritage/pop culture, because I didn't even know the band's name (or any of their members for that matter). My initial reaction to this video was "Super Junior?!" with all those boys. XD

You're totally making me want to do a K-POP cosplay, but I'm so "out-of-the-loop" persay that I'd have no idea who I'd aim for. I love 송혜교 and 송승헌 since I'm still so obsessed with 가을동화 (old, I know), but I look nothing like them. D;

If you do 김준수, will you be wearing the same costume he features in this video? ;3

I wanna do Junsu~~ Only problem is the costume....Oh and the small fact,that I'm not Asian XD

Tee hee. SJ. There's to many of them :O I get confuuuuuuuused.

I don't think I ever say Autumn in my heart. But I like Rooftop Room cats.(옥탑방 고양이 )

송혜교!!!!!!! Hye-Kyo! Full house...Right?

And yes. This is the costume I want to do for 김준수... But sadly I can't sew. I have to find someone who would be willing to make it for me. I'll pay them of course :3

Hahaha! Well, while I may have no idea what you look like, I'm sure you can pull it off just fine! I want to see! ♥

"Autumn In My Heart" is like the embodiment of Korean drama for me. It's old and by present-day standards, and it's probably cheesy with all its angst and pseudo-incest, but I bawled so hard practically every episode (I was in middle school then, but I recently rewatched it and I still tear up everytime) it was scored into my very skin. I haven't seen or heard of Room Cats though. XD

Yup! She was in Full House with Rain! RAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIN. I'm actually not really so much a 비 fangirl, but ever since I saw Stephen Colbert's report featuring him in that DDR match, it's like a given to call out his name like that. On a sidenote, I haven't bothered yet to watch Full House, gah!

I imagine you've been to Cosplay.com already, but I'm pretty sure you can find someone who could definitely pull it off for you over there at the Marketplace. If I'm thinking the same costume as you are, it's kind of like a fursuit (yet not a fursuit) and I've seen a few people around available for that kind of work. Best of luck! ;3

You guys are tooooo cute. :_: ~~~~♥ *gush*

And I am so happy the hoodie made it back in plenty enough time for you to get it for the convention. And it looks amazing on you! :3 I am happy the resizing fit you! ♥

Aw, thank you so much! We'll definitely be taking it to heart, especially coming from such a cutiepie like yourself! ;3

And if you're happy about the hoodie arriving on time, consider me crazily ecstatic! Thank you again so much for all your patience and for refitting the hoodie for me. I couldn't possibly ask for more - absolute perfection! If I may glee further, I can definitely affirm that the hoodie was a huge hit with the people at the con; I had buttloads of people asking if I had made it. After I told them that I had commissioned it from you, there was a lot of people asking for your commission info; if you get too flooded with sudden requests in the near future, I apologize! D;

I'm so glad that you enjoyed this little photoshoot! It goes without saying, but it would have hardly been the success it was without your wonderful work~! Thank you so so so much! ♥

Gack! I truly am an airhead; I can't believe I missed that!

Like I said in that last comment I left you, I'm so glad that everything came in safe-and-sound and that you enjoyed it! I only regret not having been able to find Glameow for you and that I wasn't able to send it off soon enough in time for your birthday. D;

Haha, I wish! The hoodie was actually a commissioned work, made via [livejournal.com profile] usakochan's skilled hands, and you can see her work or, in fact, commission her yourself at [livejournal.com profile] curious_nono. ♥

And thank you! ;D
