Two weeks of vacation and I come back to work today with a cold.
Yaoicon was much fun. I don't do much actual con stuff as it's mostly an excuse to dress up in funky clothes/costumes and hang out with friends I only see once a year. This year one person I would have liked to have seen couldn't make it, but a couple annoyances also couldn't make it, so it was relatively quiet, which is how I like it.
There were lots of steampunk costumes this year. I've never seen so many corsets at yaoicon! And the highlight for me, several groups cosplaying Weiss Kreuz! One group even had Manx and Reiji Takatori OMG. It was awesome. Also talked to an adorable couple cosplaying Sora and Sunao from Sukisho! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Fullmetal Alchemist and Final Fantasy cosplayers were fewer in number than in previous years.
Someone hosted a Misogyny in Yaoi Fandom panel, but since I was selling at the Fan Market I didn't make it. I'm kind of burnt out on the topic TBH, but it would have been interesting to see how it went at Yaoicon, considering all the acrimony leveled at yaoi fans in online disucssions.
Came home with some yaoi art, but also fanart of Lightning and a Fang/Lightning piece I commissioned.
Also, my friend who was staying with me before and after was sent home to England yesterday. It was strange to be home alone last night. The cats seem to be happy to get back to the normal routine, though.
Now I am exhausted and trying to get through the day at work. Will probably go home at noon, so I just have to make it another hour and a half.This entry was originally posted at http://acrimonyastraea.dreamwidth.org/69415.html.
