Image-heavy super-long report guys, brace yourselves! ^_^
So. Last weekend was main Animania!
and I headed down on the Thursday with our giant boxes of props for WCS~ got charged scary excess baggage ;;____;; Like I'm not poor enough already OTL >_< Friday was spent fixing some last minute things, buying more hairspray and false lashes and the like, and then rehearsals that night...which, just like last year, took forever and ran really late LOL. And we were dead because we carried all our stuff from our hotel to the venue...yes, we walked. lol. 8'DDDSaturday
Saturday was the day of the competition, so entailed a lot of stress and uncomfortable giant amounts of clothing lol...although at least the actual competition was earlier this year than last! having watched the video of our skit, I have to say the performance looked pretty poor...so not exactly ecstatic about it, but meh! At least it's over LOL 8'D
and I cosplayed Teito and Frau from 07-Ghost, and came 3rd ^_^
Some photos thanks to
Want to give A HUGE MEGA AWESOME SPARKLY LOVE-AND-SUGAR-FILLED CONGRATULATIONS to
our Team Australia 2011!!!
You girls performed amazingly, sent chills down my spine in a perfect way, and your costumes were incomporably beautiful. Not only that, but you're both amazingly kind, sweet and wonderful people, and I think you'll be the best representatives we could possible ask for!
Giant congratulations also to Aya and John (Contra Mundi) who cosplayed from Trinity Blood and took out 2nd place! I literally was overwhelmed by the insane amount of gorgeous work that was represented in your costumes...like...OMG...I would never be able to make something like that in a million years 8"D
Big hugs to all the other WCS competitors:

Thanks also to our wonderful judges!

Monday we couldn't sleep in again ;;____;; because we had to pack up and check out OTL...and that meant we had to get into makeup and costume super early for our 07-Ghost shoot in the afternoon T_T Before that though we went to Darling Harbour and had delicious Lindt café hot chocolate and macaroons with ~kaguyaxhime
