Alas, I Have Returned
well I returned from expo like two weeks ago but It's taken me this long to write about it xD

^^ This is probably going to be a pretttty long blog btw XD so thank you very muchly if you decide to read<3 I shall have to glomp you if I see you ^^

Hopefully I can remember everything XD if you're one of my friends reading, and notice that I left something out, please alert me<3
Oh and, sorry for any spelling mistakes. This keyboard sucks and I dislike the spell-checker on livejournal, and I don't have the google one on this computer D:

Lets Start From

I had college this day. But.. plans of going to college fell out of the window ^^;
The night before, my parents told me I should probably not go to college, as I'd be in too much of a rush, and I hadn't managed to pack yet anyway. Last minute cosplay making- don't you just love it? =_=;
So, spent the morning getting ready, and checking things online. The afternoon was spent trying to make a list of things to take and then pack it all. I had to keep dashing from one room to another, listening to McFly's album Wonderland about 3 times xDD didn't even have time to put the CD away. Just turn the stereo off( and switch off the plug, ofcourse ;3 ). So the CD was in there all the time i was in London XD yes, I did worry about it slightly. idk why. I just worry constantly ¬.¬'
I barely made packign in time! Dad was meant to pick me up from home, get my sister( who I WILL make cosplay Sealand in the future >3 )from primary school, and then drive me to the station. He was THIS CLOSE to leaving for Rosie and then coming back for me. But luckily, by the skin of my teeth, i got everything packed in time. PHEW. SRSLY. xD

^ see what I mean about this being a long blog? I'm betting this'll take me a few days.. WELL IT'LL BE WORTH IT 8DD

So, when i got to the station, there were... a lot of people <.< WHY, WHEN I HAVE A SUITCASE?! DAMN IT! XD
So i couldn't get past easily to get to the other side of the station to WHSmiths where Rachel & Monisha were XD ( I was near where you get tickets in Leeds Station ;3 )plus I was with my Sister and Dad and didn't wanna lose them behind me XD
Luckily Rachel and Monisha saw me and i got glomped XD which made me feel weird in front of Rosie & Dad XD


So then we waited a while there, were waiting for my Mum. And then it got to the point me and Rachel had to get the train, so we were starting to think we'd have to go without saying bye to my Mum, Brother, Dad and Sister. But thankfully they came ( back for Sis and Dad ) in time( my Mum finds it hard to walk, so, it took her ages to get to the station D8 my Dad was to pick her up too you see, she'd been out in town ) and I said bye, and bye to Monisha too cuz she wasn't allowed to come D8 and then me and Rachel pretty much dashed for the train XD had to get seats in time. Luckily we did, next to the luggage rack =w=

The Train & Tube Journey to ExCel

The train journey consisted of;
listening to Aya Hirano's album RIOT GIRL( lol Rachel spazzed at me having that XD ) and Avril Lavigne's album The Best Damn Thing, and singing along to it quietly.
wondering whether these people on the train chatting were American or Canadian XD( one of them started talking to us when we got off XD I should have expected that to happen )
restraining ourselves from flailing about expo
wondering why this woman got up and just left her laptop on her seat in plain view, and phone O.o
feeling tired XD

When we got off, we thought we needed our tickets cuz people were getting stuck near these gates XD but we didn't know they were just gates. We thought they were machines like at Leeds station for the tickets. tbh I'm surprised London don't have them O__o probably because so many people go there XD they would have too many people trying to get through the barriers lol.

Then when we finally got through, we walked through the station and outside. Almost as soon as we do;
So i look around, as i was cosplaying Punk!Igiko, forgot to mention XD but if you read my previous entry, you would know :3 idk if you would be able to remember, though. probably not..
So ya, who do we see? Mexico, Sophie & a few others I didn't know XD HOW TOTALLY RANDOM.
They were waiting for Poppy and others, so, we decided to wait too. Well... we weren't sure for ages XD but we ( well, I. Rachel said she didn't mind what we did but it was up to me. D8 WHY )basically spent so long deciding whether to wait or not, that we ended up waiting anyway xDD

OH YEAH. F**K YOU MEXICO. I BEAT YOU IN FOOTBALL >D JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE NO GOOD AT IT DOESN'T GIVE YOU THE RIGHT TO INSULT ME. Not that I'm not good at football <.< I'm the best!! You were just so EASY to beat ;D

*ahem* so we all got the tube, and it was..weird O O lol, my first time in London, okay? I didn't even get over the red buses! Started spazzing outside the station XD
Something to mention was the time we all didn't get away from the doors in time, and Robin( Poppy's brother ) got stuck in the doors, with his hands out of the doors, gripping the edges of the doors shouting "LET ME OUT!!" and not listening to Poppy at all XD who was saying to get off at the next station and they'd meet him there. Luckily the doors did open, but he was like that for about a minute XD Poor Robin.

So eventually, we arrived at custom house and got off ^^ was going to get off at prince regent I think it was, but Rachel was meeting Janet and peoples at ExCel so I followed :3
Met with Katie at PTI who I was staying with, and tsayed outside for a little while as i waited for her to take me up to the room ^^ but as I did, Beth/MadamLapin found me and we chatted for a little while ^^

The Rest of Friday

Consisted of going to ASDA on the DLR and getting some drinks to last the weekend ^^ we wanted to get fish fingers and custard but our hotel room didn't have a microwave to cook fish fingers and we didn't find any ready-cooked Dx lmao.
Also i met up with twin and we hung out for quite a while xD then it was bedtime, and by the time i got back to my room, everyone had gone to sleep XD it was like midnight. So I quietly got ready for bed, then tripped over a part of the other bed, like a sofa thing, in the dark XDD and then went to sleep in bed.

Sunrise Cosplay on Saturday!

I only got 3hrs and a half of sleep, but it was better than some who hadn't had like any XD so got up around 3:40am, got ready in my Punk!Yuki!Tsukasa cosplay, ( without makeup as we were running late Dx )and set off :3
It was cooolddd Dx
We went to meet at the bridge( me and Georgina, Katie had already set off XD; ) but as we went, we saw a large group of cosplayers coming our way! Lmao we thought we'd be having a huge battle or something when we met 8D but, we were outnumbered!!
Lol, for some reason or other, they were coming to the balcony at the other side of the centre, so we all went ^^ and much fun commensed xP didn't get much of a sunrise D': but it was still good :D one of the stewards sang the Japanese national anthem which was epic :D except, he was Chinese XD

Sunrise Conga - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUd1IQsULbk

Sunrise rave -
This is Madness!.. -
Sunrise on Motorcycles -
Sunrise Japanese National Anthem -
After Sunrise -

lol I love how nearly all titles have 'sunrise' in them ;D
So after the sunrise meet, i went back to the hotel to put my make up on and stuff ^^ which i did in Rachel's room because Chris was in my room sleeping still ^^ although, apparently she didn't sleep any more after we had all got up for sunrise XD;
Then we went back to the expo, and the doors had opened on the east side :P on the west side, there were loads of people trying to get in who couldn't, and we were all laughing at them xD but when they were let in, we ran :P
So, got in a queue, which was then fucked up ( i called 2nd dibs on the queue..well, 1st, but georgina didn't believe me Dx but I ended up being quite few places back! )because of the yu-gi-oh people <.< why can't they have their own fucking queue?
Sorry for language but, seriously, it was bloody annoying D:
A bit later, I realised i had forgotten my DS in the hotel, so i went back for it when we went for breakfast ^_^ Rachel & Janet let me join them because only they wanted breakfast out of like 4 people in their room, even though only 3 stayed in the end D: lol i could've stayed with them, damnit xD but it was nice with Katie and everyone ^^

Breakfast was nice =w= then went back to the queue and waited.


tba xD
