So this post was supposed to be my trip to Asheville Anime Regional Convention, however, we didn’t make it there. I didn’t even know it existed until I saw a post on Facebook from Jad Saxton (voiced Yuki from Wolf Children and Sena from Haganai) saying she was going to be there. Of course I immediately told my husband and I just HAD to go… because duh… Jad was going to be there and it’s Asheville. I mean… DUH!
My plan was to take Lyra and have her dress as Yuki like she did for Hoshicon and I would dress in my revised Slytherin student cosplay. Well I’m super indecisive. I woke up on Saturday not wanting to go because I drove ALL DAY the day before and I just didn’t feel like going for a 1.5 hour drive to Asheville.
BUT Jad responded to my tweet about how I only found out about the con thanks to her, so then I ran to my husband and we were like, “No, now we HAVE to go!” But I’m a girl and I take forever to get ready and I was having a severe hangry moment which made me take longer to get ready. I finally was ready, we packed up everything in the van and started to drive. We still hadn’t eaten so we stopped for food and then we needed gas and then we looked at the time and we were definitely not making it for the autograph session with Jad.
So in the end, we didn’t go. I know we could have still went and met up with Jad in a panel or something, but I’m an introvert and it was just like… all the driving from the day before, rushing around, being hangry, crying about being hangry, more rushing… I was just overwhelmed. hahah! Hopefully there will be a next time. :)
Anyway… since I was already dressed up, my husband wanted to take pictures. So here they are. ♥
That’s really my engagement and wedding ring, by the way!
