I had to wake up at 8am this morning to get ready for the Cosplay Contest. I can’t believe that it was held in the morning. Ugh, I totally thought it’d be in the evening. Anyhow, I only had an hour’s sleep beforehand since I spent the previous night working on the costume for the contest. The contest went fine. I saw the usual share of good, bad, and mediocre entries. I ended up not winning anything, but it was great to strut around on stage, spreading Touhou to the masses. I even spliced a Satoko laugh into the audio track. I almost lost my balance and fell over in the high-heeled shoes I wore.
Then there was the Touhou panel.
I’d run into a few people during late Friday and early Saturday who recognized my Remilia cosplay and said that they’re going to the Touhou panel later, but I’d never thought that the panel would be pretty full (though not quite with the same standing-room-only volume as the swimsuit contest). A few other girls cosplaying Touhou (Reimu, Marisa X 2, Suika, Alice, Parsee) and men cosplaying Sakuya showed up, too, so we held an impromptu photoshoot right there in the panel. Oh god, suddenly, cameras, EVERYWHERE. All of us girls groped man-Sakuya’s breasts, too, since they were the only pair we could touch without violating the panel rating.
In the afternoon I went back to the Karaoke Idol contest since I’d made it into the final round. However, I’m not a great singer, so I didn’t win anything at the contest, either. I didn’t like how the little girl won one of her awards because of a bunch of hyperactive girls screaming near the front of the stage who drowned out the rest of the room cheering for other contestants, but god she was adorable.
In the evening I crashed again since I’d only had four hours of sleep total for the past two days, and this time I just slept all the way to 10am the next day.
