Convention after effects are so not as fun.

Phew, I’m running a bit behind in some of my schedule/plans. This weekend at MTAC was a blast, but I’m still suffering from the after effects. After I came home Sunday afternoon, I crashed on the couch which then cause me to not really want to sleep Monday night. I felt like I got more than enough sleep over the weekend but I guess the constant walking around and doing things caught up to me a lot more than what I thought.

Friday went by very smoothly although I was running on 2 hours of sleep the night before. We checked into our hotel around 8:30 AM since I had requested the night before if we could have a room ready that early. After everyone got their badges and a much needed nap, it was time to hit up the convention.

I’m not entirely sure how many people attended the convention this year but it felt like it was less because we were in a much bigger area. Last year, MTAC was held at just a hotel. This year, we had an entire convention center just for us. I didn’t take as many pictures as I would have liked. I wanted to beat out last year, but there was so much going on this year and also having a bigger area makes it harder to track down people for pictures. The highlight of Friday night was probably meeting Jason David Frank.

I was a huge fan at 7 years old so being able to meet the guy is almost like a dream come true. He turned out to be very nice and interactive with his fans. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet Norman Reedus as a result although I did see him but wasn’t able to take a photo with him nor of him. My friends were lucky enough to meet him at the elevators in the hotel and were able to talk to him as well as take some photos. Oh wells, maybe in the future? :)

Saturday and Sunday were spent with friends walking around, taking photos, doing photo shoots, and anything else that came to mind. I’m still waiting for some more photos to be posted but here’s one taken at the Final Fantasy photo shoot, me as gunner Yuna from FFX-2.

I had a few more cosplays but not sure if I have many photos of them, at least ones that I like. I’m not the greatest when it comes to taking photos. Regardless, I wouldn’t mind another weekend like this one. It’s still kind of hard coming back to work.

Outside of cosplay stuff…this morning I received an email saying that I can finally sign up for Beauty Army after about a one month wait. I thought about it for a while, debating whether or not I should. The money probably isn’t something I should be spending right now anyway but it seems someone out there wants me to subscribe as during this time, I found out I got a slight raise this month :) So, of course I signed up. What really convinced me is that this is also the same week that Beauty Army announced you can now skip a month if you do not like that month’s samples. I’m currently not sure if this means I can skip every month if I don’t like the samples or if I’m only allowed to skip one month at a time. If it’s the former, I’ll probably stay signed up for a while. If it’s the latter, I might cancel depending on how the bags turn out as I would like to try a couple other sample sites but don’t want to spend too much money monthly.

My first bag will consist of:

  • Cellceuticals Neocell 0.33 FL OZ
  • Mama Mio Boob Tube 1.7 OZ
  • Freeman Beauty Pssssst Instant Dry Shampoo 1.76 OZ
  • Befine Night Cream 0.5 FL OZ
  • Babor Anti-Stress Jet Lag Cream 0.5 FL OZ
  • Aquolina Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette Natural Spray 0.06 OZ
  • Beauty Army allows you to pick 6 out of 9 samples they have every month for $12. While I am excited to try some of these samples, the selection this month just wasn’t that great to me but I’m willing to give them a try for a few months. To be honest, I would have probably opted to skip this month had it not been for the fact that I had to sign up if I didn’t want to lost my place on the wait list. I might go back and redo the beauty quiz. Reviews of the items will be up once I get them.

    Speaking of reviews, my goal is to get the Julep review up later tonight but taekwondo will have to come first :)
