Happy December everyone!
So memorabilia was a week ago, and there was so much excitement! (unfortunately I didnt get any photos .___.
So for me it began on Sunday, where I was full out sewing my costume and making everything that had to be made, this went on until Saturday 9:15am-ish. Also we had a little plot twist, for about three hours on Thursday I think it was? I got a message from Holly saying: "If I cant get anything out of my bank account I cant go.".... Yeahhhh, that happened. but in the end her dad lent her some money :woo:.
Woke up at about 6:30 on Saturday, got out of bed at about 8:45
, fixed everything I needed to (it was literally just the crown and put the costume on) However I didn't put the wig on until later. Wasted about half an hour with my nephew on the Wii. and at about 10:00 (the time we set to have left mine by) I got another message saying that Holly's dad was just having porridge... about half an hour- to an hour later we finally set off. and being in Britain, it rained. alot. my dress. the rain on it showed. so bad ;_;. we sewed some ribbon bows onto Holly's shoes, and since they were bought last minute, the ribbon didn't match the boots...hashtagYOLO. and then as we got to some of the towns about 20 minutes away from the NEC we decided to put our wigs on. I being efficient, brought my wig-cap and had put my wig on in about 5 minutes and was trying to put the crown on. Holly had forgotten hers. she was sat there with about 1889673638 hair pins pinning her hair up and then put her wig on.
We kept taking the wrong turns in Birmingham and we spent about 10 minutes trying to get to the center itself. We eventually got directions from various signs. Including one that listed the events, where we saw that the cat show was being held at the same time again. I was crying, last year I kept seeing people with lmassive bags of cat food/litter/ect. when we got inside we located our hall and went to the back of the line... that was about 400m long. Maybe longer, I dont know. As regular mcm expo goers will know that stormtroopers tend to make a frequent appearance in the events, and as soon as we started queing, one of them walked past us, and his knee armor fell off. .____. I died slowly as I laughed silently. After queing for about 20 mins, we finally got inside and thusly began the endless circling of the hall. Holly invested in a Keyblade (wooden, good investment), I spent my money on a large pack of treats from TokyoToys. and we shared 4 cupcakes with Finn, Jake, Link and a mudkip on. Costing £10 in total hrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnnnngggg<3 only to have all of them (except Link) destroyed in the car on the way home. ya.
I also saw David Hasslehoff!!!!E£DFGSHVBFGYIMNTYIMLTMYILMRB I'm not even that big a fan of him. I just died.
