Aight, I thought i'd lighten up all the educational posts with a little story time. Well, not much of a story but a story none the less!
I tend to go to conventions a lot (feel free to recommend a convention that I should go to - Europe only tho ;-; I'm scared to travel any further than Europe, eek!). But I went to a gaming convention, Insomina 58, it was in the NEC in Birmingham. Thats my go to location for conventions tbh, its within driving distance which is handy because I can steal a lift off my dad and he'll just go eat lunch with his friends while he waits before we head home.
I'm actually not a huge gamer so I thought I'd hate going insomnia tbh. And I was sad because that meant I couldn't message my protector alllll day! But, my brother wanted to go but needed a legal adult to accompany him, and who would've thought it? Me being someones legal adult. He acts older than me in all honesty .-.
While we were queueing before being let inside to the actual convention bit, I saw two girls in kitten gear and ohmylord, this one girl had the most perfect ears, they were grey and of the realistic style. I couldn't quite work out which brand they were. My brother was like "just ask where they got them from omg! stop being such a pussy!". We walked past them a few times throughout our time there. But the one time I had the courage to ask, I realised her friend was wearing them instead who was clearly just messing about a bit (; but I couldn't exactly go up to her and ask her where she got them from when they are on some guys head....she'd wonder how I knew they were hers ;-;
Honestly, I never did get to ask her where she got them from. It still bums me out a bit because they looked so perfect and I would've loved to get my first realist pair from the same seller.
Overall tho, insomnia turned out to be amazing! There was loads of nekomimis which actually surprised me, cosplaying wasn't a huge theme there, obviously there was a few but I was expecting the majority of the cosplays to be game based, but there was A LOT of nekomimi's!
I also got some Japanese sweets and played a few games, and might've accidentally broke one of the retro gaming consoles, but, lets not talk about that okay.
Not sure if i'll go there back by my own choice, as its a little too pricey entry for someone whos not that big on games. But if a friend was going I wouldn't mind going and accompanying them.
>.^ well, theres my little ramble about my time at insomnia! Until next time kittens, ~ Omo
