First things first : did you miss me on lookbook.nu? If you did, you will be happy to know that I have my account with all my old looks due to the incredibly wonderful Yuri of LB. (more than thank you to her!..) I am more than excited to start posting again! Please fan me once more, and thank you for all your past and continuing support!

Last weekend I went to my first anime convention with the sci-fi society from my university! It was an incredible experience and it still feels bizarre settling back to reality. I had wanted to cosplay for a long time and I'm so thrilled I finally got the chance to do so. Asuka from Evangelion is one of my all-time favourite characters and so I chose her. Enjoyable moment of first walking into the con and having 'Asuka!!' shouted at me from across the room... I had a lot of photos taken, took a lot of photos of amazing cosplayers and got to know incredible people.


I only got a few photos on my camera, most were phone snaps - I wish I'd taken more but I was too busy having fun!




I think my favourite part of the event was the Sunday, watching screenings of Evangelion 1.0 and 2.22... so, so many feels ヽ(´□`。)ノ - in fact, the screenings in general were really great. They showed some of my favourites (Watamote and Chuunibyou) and I wish I'd gone to see more! I'm going to Kaizokucon in March next year so I'll be sure to remember to do so...
It was a pretty surreal experience, being surrounded by so many incredible costumes. I loved it so much... I wish it could be like that every day!... but then I suppose the magic would wear off?! ( p_q)


Eirtakon had moved to a new location - apparently they usually had it in UCD, but they had to change to Croke Park this year. From people who went to the previous cons apparently it was better there, but they did well with the location. There were some issues with screenings on the first day (they wouldn't play, Serial Experiments Lain screwed up and I was devastated) but this was fixed by the Saturday. The trader's hall was a great place to look at merchandise but I didn't find anything that I really loved - I wanted a Kyubey plushie and they only had these bizarre ones with huge heads. Shame! I bought a Tsukuyomi bag for €5, such a score! - and a few necklaces (Murua knockoff and a Kingdom Hearts pendant) and rings. My shinyuu Danyel got my a Glaceon bookmark which was so sweet~ thank you! <3


Some pretty graffiti in Dublin and art on windows...


Here is Danyel and I on the non-cosplay day... circle lenses for the win~ I'm wearing Geo Bella Blue and she is wearing EOS Ice in Purple. They look amazing with her eyes! We both have green eyes with distinct limbal rings so it's fun to look for lenses together.


Some details from the day! My hair has grown super much ah~ it's an okay length now but I would love it to be much longer... need to keep consuming ALL of the protein!


Here is the Kingdom Hearts necklace as a detail in what I was wearing today... it's perfect!.. \(^.^;)/


That is all as of now! I have a ridiculous lot of exams and assignments due next week, and best to delve into the workload instead of procrastinating... thank you for reading and I hope you've had a great week so far!
