When we first got our White Boards and were walking back from ASDA we had "We're doing it for the lulz" written on it and some kid was like "who's louise"... so we called him a n00b ^^; and he was all ">:0" and we were all "LOL KTHNXBAI :D"
yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
so I hope that was on of the people that offended either of you two ^^

The Soul Eater group - you guys made my life XD I had the best time evar hanging out with you all, geeking, emoing (as Kid XD) and WINNING!!
FluffyDragon and Llanae for being my Patty and Liz - you made this the best expo ever for me, I've never felt so at home and in character before, and I am so happy to be your friend! <3 ily gais
Sazamaphone and Kat for being my friends and supportive and fun, getting me up in the morning and to the train station, making me laugh all day and videoing us in the masquerade! Surprise buttsecks!
AmethystEyes for being my friend and not getting in a tizz when you woke up late and having the bravery to travel all by yourself (coz I know you don't like it).
Nick the Tokyopop guy for being an all round awesome guy and remembering to give me the Loveless stand after all this time (I love it, it stands proud next to my radiator).
Jon the Tokyotoys guy who I have met every expo since forever, for being hyper, lovely and fanatical enough to give me a box of pocky for friendship and costume-love XD
All the Cosplay staff - every expo you guys and gals work harder than anyone and you always manage to keep the crowd entertained and the cosplayers under control and safe; we love you, tru fax.
Beccy, the Reno girl I met with Sazipon and Kat on the train who was hilarious and awesome the whole time.
Kelly, Jenn, Laura, Charlotte and Nomi for being awesome, rawking their cosplays and being my friends.
The awesome merch stand opposite the DDR and games area which constanty have awesome new goodies; you were the only stall at expo with anything Soul Eater and I spent all mah monies trying to get the characters I wanted - and I DID! =D
Ryaoki, for showing up XD and completing the group - despite your lateness, you rawk man.
Everyone I spent time with - expo isn't expo without friends and new people to meet, I treasure all of you and can't thank you all enough for making days like these the most awesome memories ever
Everyone who cheered for us in the masquerade and tried to help us by showing us the way off stage XD I couldn't see much due to lack of glasses, so the frantic waving of arms helped! I still can't believe we got second, and although I do feel guilty that the individual cosplayers didn't get much recognition in terms of prizes, I think you all were AMAZING and I am so happy to have been a part of it.

Rants:
I had one hour's sleep XD
Feet and legs and head in pain
Creepy old scabby blokes at train station trying to talk to us
Only one day .! XD Bring back 2 days, bring back 2 days!

Thanks to:
The people standing next to us whilst we watched the masquerade! You made me laugh, and were all very friendly ^__^ I was the Lucy/Nyu with blue shorts and fail wig.
The people who spoke to me when I was wondering around on my own for a bit 8D I love speaking to random people, and again, you were all so friendly!
The people who let me take photo's of them ;D
The people who entered the masquerade! You made the day fantastic, with your amazing costumes. You've inspired me to work much harder on my costumes in the future!

Rants:
The person who glomped me and cracked one of my horns >( Warning people first is usually a good thing.
The people who basically pedo'd on my little sister. She was Lettuce from Tokyo Mew Mew. Some people just seemed friendly and loved her outfit, and asked for pictures, but others just seemed too creepy. MUST PROTECT SISTER.
PAIN IN MY LEGS. Too much walking, jesus. I need to sleep.

And one random rant : URGH FAT UGLY SPIDER IN MY BEDROOM. Achem.

I had a great time and all ^-^

Thanks to:
*My friend who came with me as Sweeney <3
*The friendly people who commented so nicely on our cosplay!
*The people who took photos of us 8)
* The glompers, who did ask and warn us before the deed was done. If any of you saw what happened you will know why I loved it XD (They all ran after my friend who was Sweeney, I was laughing at them, until I realized I was holding a free hug/glomp sign, then they ran after me and I threw myself to the floor behind that pink bus because I didn't want to get knocked over by them, then about 11 people all crowded around me grinning!) My first ever glomp, and I didn't get hurt, so it was all good! :lol:
*The free huggers who we kept meeting over and over
*Anyone who seemed to find the 'Free Shaves/hugs' sign amusing...
*Er...Everyone really! It was such a nice atmosphere and everyone I met was so kind! ^-^
*That guy who gave me air-hug XDDDDD
*My friend's mum who drove us all the way up there!
*The que to get tickets...Well, me and my friend where doing the caramelldansen, and within about 5 minutes her mum had got tickets O.o;;

Rants:
*At the masquerade I was sitting on the floor, I had such bad pins and needles in my leg, I almost fell over when I got up! >.<;;
*I had to keep topping up my make-up which got annoying =P
* I had to get up very early and it took over an hour to do my hair, then by about 10 minutes of being at the expo it had kind of collapsed XD
*I kept loosing the game because these people had signs saying that you just lost it >.< (By the way, you just lost the game)
*I wish the expo was more than 1 day long!
*Things where so expensive! (What was it?...£25 for a pair of Fruits Basket slippers! O.o;;)
*MY HIGH HEEL SHOES!!!! AHHH! My feet where KILLING me!

But all in all it was great fun! ^-^

-All the awesome people who I had a laugh with
-Everybody in the masqurade for putting on such a great show.
-The tall L who kept trying to ambush me all day. What a nice guy he was.

- The judges, for awarding us 2nd place! Thank you, we were really chuffed ^^
- Alex, for staying up til 6am on Saturday morning finishing my kwan dao (!), spending 3 hours drawing my tattoo in the middle of the foyer, and for all the love and moral support. I couldn't have done this costume without you, seriously.
- The rest of the FFExpoClan, who all looked absolutely amazing. Guys, seriously - you all blew me away with the quality of your costumes.
- All the awesome folk who took my photo/complimented my costume. It was sooo nice to have my hard work appreciated!
- Umbre-chan! It was epic to see you again! You're as cool as I remembered ;D
- The other Final Fantasy geeks I spoke to in the ticket queue. You guys rocked at life =3
- The International Centre staff member who approached us with the line, 'Uhh... excuse me, you can't be doing that in here!', thinking I was topless while my tattoo was being drawn =P
- The people who weren't freaked out by me suddenly stripping off to show my tattoo! =P

Rants
- The people who ran up and glomped me without asking... can you not see the facepaint on my back?!?! D<
- The day was so. darn. short. D=


...I actually have very few negative things to say about the day. I had an absolutely brilliant day =)

THANKS

- To the organizers. Everything went so smoothly! Extremely well run.
- To one particularly friendly staff bloke who was stood by the exit of the stage, and was craving Relentless all day XD
- Cosplay desk staff. Always so friendly. I can't remember his name, but the chap with glasses who our GH group signed in with was such a ray of sunshine ^_^
- Cosplay judges, for giving us 3rd place for adults. We really weren't expecting it! XD
- For a lovely location! The building was really attactive, and the hall was a perfect size for the number of stands and attendees.
- To the new people I met. I didn't encounter a single person I thought negativly of all day. Was great to finally meet mungojerry/freyacrescent, as well as seeing some old faces!
- To Afro Samurai and his friend, for keeping us amused in the backstage of Masquarade
- To the brilliant cosplayers! Some really great stuff there

RANTS
- Getting told we couldn't hang around outside the closed Centre afterwards, despite some people still not having their lifts turn up/trains ready to catch
- Expensiveness (expected)
- People not listening to instructions (there are health and safety rules. It was good of the organizers to let people mess around and dance on the stage, but when they say to get off, GET OFF)
- Unwanted huggers/glompers. I didn't have trouble with these, but I know one or two people who did.
- Screaming/squealing. While expected, it still gets to me when someone runs past my ear screaming at the top of their lungs!


All in all, I bloody loved it!
