This is the first time I've had the leisure to post, after scrambling to make up all the stuff I put off when I skipped school on Friday to go to AWA. It makes me a bit nervous: I'm down to a 94 in Pre-Cal because I'm bad at math and I'm not so sure I passed my last English test, because my teacher is so stupid she is convinced Beowulf is in the first person and misspelled 'huge' 'hughe' about six times.
But, AWA. It was loads of fun; I got my picture taken often enough to make me feel good about my outfits, but I was sadly lax about getting pictures myself. Though I did get a pic of a beautiful Dante cosplayer; I would have liked to talk to him, but was too shy. XD
I missed some things I wanted to go to because of the time (like the time it took to buy a tire in Thompson (?) when ours blew out on the interstate) but was pretty packed with activities. Some things I missed because I pretty much crashed after six hours at the fashion show.
And about the fashion show: everyone was lovely. The clothing was beautiful, the photographer was polite and reasurring, Megan and Samantha were friendly and instructive, especially considering that several photographers, hair dressers, and make-up artists never showed, and, while I didn't talk to many of the other models (I fail at conversation), the ones I did talk to were nice and many conversations I overheard were hilarious. It was a wonderful experience. And I would NEVER do it again. My teeth literally started chattering when we did the practice walk, I couldn't get my hands to relax, and my mind was so blank when I was out there that I seriously couldn't count in my head to pose for as long as we were supposed to. Christina and some other girls (who's names I never learned D:) were very nice and calmed me down, but I am most definately not meant the be in front of crowds. I'd much rather be behind the curtain sending my stuff out on braver girls. XD
I'm already planning what will come next year, and might see about making it to momcon, depending on how I can work things.
