Postby Sasuko on Mon Oct 26, 2009 5:48 pm

This is basically a thread about anything and everything that went a bit wrong for you at expo

I'll start us off lol XD

I left saturday's tickets in my hotel room xD
I left my deathnote at a plushie stall but luckily they kept it and got it back
I was kind of a fail for Rock band tournament Dx
The shower in my hotel didn't work right, you had to use some force to keep the shower head thing working
I left my hotel key in my room XD
The popper in my kimono's undershirt was too far back
Me, Drovac, DeeEmmSee and Asch got a little lost in London XD Mainly cos the SatNav was going insane and drove though some buildings O.o;
We had some fun trying to order pizza as well sice we didn't know the number XD

and that's all I can think of for now lol

1. I bought a random Gundam Doujin. I've never seen Gundam before and I thought the character on the front cover was a young adult female. Turns out it was little boy yaoi...

2. I saw the people giving away the free goodie bags, but I didn't know they were the bags I thought they were just giving out carrier bags so I walked right past them...

Friends arrived an hour late so i had to spend more time in the queue.
Got winded by a girl who's Master Hugger sign I should have taken more seriously.
Bro lost his free hugs sign
on the way home got off a stop early while telling my friends they had to get off, but then the doors closed while they were still on the train saying "LOOK AT THE STATION BAKA!"

I forgot to get off the underground at Stratford D: I could have arrived at expo 20 minutes sooner!

Someone got taken ill on the underground on the underground when I was going to the Japan Centre so I intended to get the Northern Line to Kings Cross and change there but then the Northern Line didn't stop at Kings Cross... I was nearly late for my train home, I was rushing so much.

My friend cosplayed as Harley Quinn and kept whacking me in the head with her hammer when she turned around.

Forgot my phone on Saturday and spent half the day looking for my friends after we split up for photoshoots.

Didn't take photos with you, Pickles, the Mojojojo and some other forum members that I would of liked to.
Sat on a wet bench outside. Nyehh.
Travelled back home alone with LemGem and got somewhat lost. Luckily I figured out our way back. *heroic noises play*

I stayed on one stop past Prince Regent by accident, though it made no difference and walking to PTI from the stop after was probably the same distance.
Forgot my Xbox 360 plug.
Forgot to book my tickets in advance and had to endure the queues xD
Screwed up my budget and failed to eat much.
Bank stole money off me for no reason.
I'm sure other stuff went wrong xD

Er...

- Got caught in the rain all the way up to Brighton Station (Dried really quickly though)
- Didn't listen to what was being said in the tube and a tube man had a bit of a go at me when I asked 'Is Picadilly down?' ^^;;
- Got lost a bit with an awesome group of TF2 cosplayers on the way home!

At the expo I was stuck in a blockage of people and was kind of near the corner of a game stand. There was just the black frame with no posters inside but I wasn't sure whether or not it was REALLY clean glass or not, so I decided that if there was no glass I could cut the corner by walking through the gap in the frame and get out of the blockage. I put my hand through to test if it was glassed (It wasn't) and then walked through going "Muahahaha" and then tripped over the other frame and went flying out the other side XD

EVEN THE SMALLEST OF SHORTCUTS ARE DANGEROUS.
HELP XD

Almost braining people with the end of my exhaust pipe whenever I turned round anywhere, meaning my tall mate had to walk around me all day as a safeguard for everyone else -________-; That was embarrassing, but I'm incredibly grateful not to have hurt anyone.

Except myself, as I've strained my right shoulder hefting that bloody thing around, even just for one day.

I've come down with a cold/fluey kinda thing. Bet a free hugger had something :P
My boyfriend had to stay at our hotel on Sunday because he had flu...so nobody was able to film our masquerade entrance XD

I didn't have many 'whoopsies' because me and my friends literally put military style precision into planning lol!
~Several 'OMG where are my train tickets' moments.
~Ripped the rippy bit off BOTH mine and my bf's tickets by accident in the queue, luckily we were still allowed in =.='
~Got off at prince regent to meet my friends, only to just have to walk back to custom house to actually get to the expo...
~Having to run around and find an emergency safety pin with only 2 people in front of my group in the masquerade because my straps started to rip :P

I had several 'OMG' moments too, though I usually though. As for ripping my ticket, I did that too but wasn't worried as I was aware that so long as you give them both parts it's fine.

Yeah we just asked a staff member who was walking past so didnt worry for too long, but then kept checking that i still had all of the parts :D. I always fiddle, I also managed to bend my underground ticket so it wouldnt go through the machine too. I really should keep tickets in my bag away from my hands XD

- I was always worrying if my hat had fallen down. D=
- My socks were always at my ankles instead of my knees, so I looked like a retard trying to pull them up. xD
- When people asked for pictures, I always seemed to have the important parts of my cosplay off; my glasses were on my head and my cardigan was in my bag. =__=;;
- When I was stewarding on Sunday, when walking through the Service Aisles, I always managed to trip. People laughed too. ._.;;
- Someone with one of those massive Crosses (sorry! I didnt know who you were cosplaying as) battered me in the face with it.
Painful and embarrasing.
- Also, sorry the highfivers I kept interrupting on Sunday! I had to keep walking down those aisles. ._.;
- Not saying Hi to the people I recognised due to pure shyness or I oculdnt find youuu~ D:

Yeah, I think thats about it. xD
I need a new signature. -.-
