{August 31, 2009}   Collectomania Glasgow + Me

This weekend, I worked at Collectormania Glasgow as you might already know.

It was a lot of fun, but incredibly tiring!! I was working at the Cosplay Booth, getting randoms in cosplay to sign up for the Masquerade~~ Ever been acosted by The Poison Scorpion Bianchi? Alot of people have now :’D We had about 20 entrants for Saturday’s cosplay which was won by an SG Atlantis group I think… Sunday had about 9 and was won by a guy from UK Garrison who wore his Custom Mandalorian costume. I forgot to get a picture but it was fantastic!!

There were many…enthusiastic…Kingdom Hearts 2 fans, who were also equally enthusiastic about Naruto and Yaoi…(see me trying not to be nasty here?) I almost got my Bianchi wig covered in glitter because of the Yaoi Fairy randomly trying to pour it on me. Only my lightning fast mafia reflexes got me out of there sparkle free (:’D).

We were outside the main hall with a table proclaiming COSPLAY in our epic hand drawn and crayon colored banner that we made at 8.30 in the morning on Saturday :3 Bianchi, Runcible and The Doctor have epic early morning skills!! We had a table full of sweeties (Tonks stole some at some point!), registration forms, pens and of course ourselves! We were placed next to some epic Airsoft guys¬† who had guns and costumes from movies like Shawn’s shirt from Shawn of the Dead. I managed to stay calm and totally professional when Hattie Hayridge walked past our table on her way back to the Green Room, even managing¬† a friendly smile and a hello ^_^ (aren’t I a well behaved Red Dwarf fan?)

3pm was the scheduled time for the Masquerade, Runcible was in charge, with the now Marty Mcfly standing telling me when to send cosplayers on stage. I was in charge of getting them to the right area and lining them up in the correct order and then making sure they all knew what to do and when. The teenagers in the Kingdom Hearts and Naruto cosplays were at this point really doing my head in and not staying in line. Professing that they had been “pushed out” and “didn’t know where they were meant to be” -_-;; my only response being “Well, if you had stayed where I put you, we wouldn’t have this problem”. We got them in the right order thankfully, Bianchi didn’t need to use Poison Cooking III on anyone (though I would have LOVED to!!).

Sunday was another good day. Less people for cosplay but I got Nii-san down to the arena to judge the cosplay for us and I spent most of the day playing with an R2D2 voice controlled toy robot. Even managing to get it to play the Imperial March, which even his owner, Scapegoat, couldn’t get it to do :3 I have a feeling it may have looked kind of creepy though, to see a girl dressed in EGL sitting with an R2 unit on her knee singing the Imperial March. I even had the actor playing Darth Vader from the original films watching at one point which was rather surreal as his guard said “I should hope he remembers!” after I asked the droid “R2, do you remember? Darth Vader?” I was that engrossed in the little robot on my knee that I didn’t realise Vader was watching XD moment of WIN if there ever was one!! I also got to see the epic sight of Professor Flitwick on a Segway…I really really really want a Segway now…already wanted one but after seeing one for real, I definately have to get one!!

I have a few pictures to share of some of the best cosplayers of the weekend~~

I hope that worked >.<!!
