Japanese Art Festival. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD ...
It was awesome.

Ok, first things ... last. It was packed. It was shiny. Bad things: No workshops, missed premiere.

Hm, here's the manga portrait I got done, and the last festival's too. I think I like last festival's more, but the other is more truthful.
Today's: Photobucket
February's: Photobucket
Well, anyway, before I'd even got into the festival, I spotted a CardCaptor Sakura cosplayer who I ambushed and demanded a photo of. We had a lovely chat about CLAMP! Speaking of cosplayers, these are the ones I managed to spy. If you know/are them, please, tell me your names! The Bleach Esapda were fabby marveloso, and the Macross Frontier singer was lovely, and the Rozen Maiden girl was awesome, but these are the photos I took (sorry about the blurry pictures with random heads in the way);

*A* O_O <3 That's right, Sonia Leong was there. And I recognised her voice from the podcasts. And ... she's aweesome, really nice, chatting to fans and even asked what my SD username was. She was incredibly kind and funny, much more so than I had assumed, but most importantly, I snagged this off her;

Aren't I just? XD The second portrait is my fave, they made me look pretty C: I love that egg, but it's really hard to open and whenever I do, the put-together Syaoran figure inside pops out and his head goes flying DDD: The Sakura cosplayer was incredibly kind, too. The best outfit eva C: She even had adorable little Clow Cards XD Omg, go, have fun! Take photos and come back and picspam us allll !
Cassietokene on July 12th, 2009 12:07 pm (UTC)
But you're already pretty, no? ;D I wish there were portrait artists at the cons I go to o wo That would just be so awesome <3

DDDD: PUT SYAORAN'S HEAD BACK ON NAO.

I like Sakura's green puffy dress-outfit too... [/ultimate vague comment] Ahah, that's so cute! I'd love to have a set of clow cards 8DDD

YES. I WILL! >D (Now just to find someone to go with D: Its kinda close to my exams, so not sure if I'll find anyone...)

Pretty? Moi? Certainly not! Did you see that photo of me? I look like Miss Piggy XD Portraits are always awesommee, and also, it attracts customers - there was a huge queue for the cheapest one yesterday *sweatdrop* SYAAAOORAN! I am going to glue it on. Now. And also, my dad decided that to torture me for being a teenager was to steal my Syaoran figure-thing from me. Cue scary Medusa-hair and screaming assasin-ness from me. Oddly enough, I know the dress you're talking about ... vair pretty C: They sold a set of Clow Cards in Japan, which I am going to hunt out one day XDD And I went to the festival with my mum and step-dad, so it can't be any worse than that :D
Cassietokene on July 13th, 2009 12:35 pm (UTC)
But you don't DDD: And I love that blue shirt of yours :3

O: How much did it cost? NOt too expensive, I hope?

Superglue fixes all. <3

OO: YOU DO? The pretty pretty green checked one which is all puffy around the skirt and the sleeves and it has white bits too?? 8DDD

Oh gosh, clow cardsssssssss. I wish someone would just sell a set already or something D:
HEY. I wonder if there's a stamping com for clow cards or something. LOLWTHRANDOM.

Aaah, well, just going's pretty fun, yeah? ^^

I like that top too, it's pretty C: It cost £3, so not much XD ARGGGGHHH I think I know the dress but I'm probably way off track :D OMG CLOW CARDS STAMPING COMM = love. XDDD
Cassietokene on July 13th, 2009 03:57 pm (UTC)
Too bad there's no such thing D: As a clow card stamping comm, I mean D:
(I would totally love to be... Er... SWEET. Haha yes!)

If I ever get my head into the wonderful world of html codes and stamping comm inner workings, I will make one XD (ie. I won't make one)
