Lyn and Lee are back from DAiCon!
It was a fairly spontaneous decision (considering that we're used to planning cons a year or so in advance), and Davis was hot and everything was polliniferous, but it was definitely worth it. Lyn and Cami from Cobalt Save Cosplay
got there first as Ty Lee and casual Storm respectively, and Lee joined them late in the afternoon incognito.Lyn:
Cami and I got to the con just after lunchtime. We wandered briefly through the combined Artist's Alley / Dealer's Hall, met up with ~BlizzardTerrak
, and got some good photos with him! The three of us tried to watch the Cosplay Contest, but it was too full and they weren't letting more people in, so we just hung out and took some photos for our Fanime panel
I had initially planned on joining them much earlier during the con, but phones have a tendency to freak out during cons and I wasn't able to find Lyn or Cami. Instead I watched the Cosplay Contest. Saw some amazing costumes and performances (including some by The Hungry Cosplayers
), and the judges (among whom was our buddy ~StrawberryNeko
) did a fantastic job in choosing the winners.
After the group had re-formed, we got to take a few more pictures, but mostly we just relaxed. Lee got to meet up with good friend ~AnnalaFlame
(whose amazing Pokemon figurines everyone should definitely check out!) and spend some quality time complaining about how hot it was and how ridiculously quickly Fanime was coming up. We also ran into a bunch of friends at the same time, which was exciting! Afterwards, we all had a nice dinner at Burgers and Brew. It was nice coming to a small con with such a laid-back atmosphere. We were able to chill with old friends, as well as make a few new ones.
Special thanks to Cami for hosting us and letting us take turns monopolizing the sink for cosplay wig progress! We had a really great time at Davis and look forward to seeing everyone again (at FanimeCon?!? 15 days away ARRRGGGHHH)!
