I plan to go again, but next time for the Museum of Play!
Anyway, I decided to go to ToraCon for the first time. I attempted to go two years ago, but transportation didn't work out, and it was going to be too much of a hassle. But this year worked out! I cosplayed Chie from P4 because it's nice and comfortable (my legs were freeezing outside, though) and I wanted something that was low-maintenance. Nia would have been great, but Chie is easier to get into, the makeup appears natural, and the wig is nice and short.
The main reason for me going was so that I could hang out with a guy I just started dating (who I met at Genericon a few weeks ago). We managed to just barely get into Cosplay Chess, which was hilarious. Good job, guys. I could tell it was well rehearsed and had very few hiccups.
Otherwise, we hung out, met up with =Stealthos-Aurion
for a little, went to the dealer's room (where I got a gel Luke charm from TotA), watched the first half of Redline, and then ~Kikuka-chan
and I did our Anime Amazons panel. This time we took questions throughout the panel until waiting to the end, and I'm glad we did! It felt more interactive, and some of the questions/comments were awesome.
But mostly I just want to leave this here:
Anime Boston is in two months! I honestly don't know if Sayaka will be ready. My schoolwork has been eating me alive. I'm mostly busy right now because I'm in the middle of writing a 25-page paper on the Soviet Woman, and presenting at a national conference this weekend plus our school's symposium next week (where I will give two presentations, yikes).
I hope everyone else had a good time at PAX East, Zenkaikon, whatever else was happening!
