I headed to Linköping today to attend at the Närcon convent, primary to see A(ace) perform. As usual, I traveled by myself. It’s OK, but sometimes I wish that I had a friend who shared my passion for otaku-things and visual kei.
Anyway, the convent area was huge (The university campus) and I got lost in the labyrinth of halls all the time. There was cosplayers everywhere with more or less impressing outfits and I couldn’t help myself from feeling sorry for those with heavy clothing ’cause it was really hot outside. I only wore a simple sleeveless dress and I was about to die by the heat.
I also spotted some Furries, totally covered by their animal suits… must have been sweaty in there.
The area held a lot of different interesting events and shops. I mostly looked at the shops actually and found some stuff I really liked. Like these ears…
Here’s a stuffed Nyanko Sensei (from Natsume Yujincho anime). If he wasn’t so darn expensive, he would have followed me home (hm… like if I need more bumptious cats with super powers in my home…. I also found a Nyanko Sensei cap!
In Korea you can marry them. 🙂 These reminds me though of Lee Jin-Gyu who married his dakimaura. ^^ I think it’s cute. Man merries pillow
I found Misa at the area and we finally managed to sing the whole “Cassis” by Gazette that we once only started at the Rencon convent.
I also met Natsu and “Fantazama” at the area. Natsu and another of her friends was already queuing for the concert and I know they got a good spot just in front of the stage later.
The concert was supposed to start at 10.00 PM so I joined the line at 9.00. Unfortunately, there apparently was some problem with A(ace) manager (described as a sort of high-hat ass by the Närcon staff) so it got delayed. We had to stand and sit in the cold (yes, cause it got very cold in the evening) until midnight before they finally let us in.
I was freezing cold and started to feel sick. A girl next to me was very kind and decided to sit down next to me, close, so we could share body warmth. That was very much needed. And we had an interesting talk too.
Well, more about the concert later…
