    Some kind of update

    Thought I'd provide a bit of an update, if anyone even cares anymore. Despite the tepid response to my latest story, I'm going to move forward and try to get more stuff done; shorter stories that won't take as long to write.

    Obligatory Bronycon Post

    Surprise surprise, I'll be at Bronycon this year. Friday and Saturday. And maybe a little in the morning on Sunday, because my flight back home is late in the afternoon.

    Cosplaying as Hoity, per usual. Perhaps there will be another this year, for once.

    My Little Monster High 2: The Search for More Money

    With EQG2 being leaked onto YouTube, I was able to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

    Overall, it was somewhat better than the first, but still pretty bad. What I liked and didn't can be summed up with a bunch of bullet points:

    Pros
    ****
    -Story seems to have a good bit more thought put into it, less story-breaking flaws

    Obligatory Bronycon 2014 Summary

    While I'm not exactly back home yet (still at the hotel actually, waiting to check out), I figured I'd write a little summary of my mostly-lovely Bronycon 2014 experience. Despite bouts of nausea, I found it to be overall enjoyable!

Obligatory Bronycon 2014 Summary · 1:40pm Aug 3rd, 2014

While I'm not exactly back home yet (still at the hotel actually, waiting to check out), I figured I'd write a little summary of my mostly-lovely Bronycon 2014 experience. Despite bouts of nausea, I found it to be overall enjoyable!

The badge pickup seemed to go a lot smoother than last year, which was nice. I was only in line for about an hour and a half, compared to 2 hours and 15 minutes of last year.

Friday was decent enough; even though I had to bail out of the cosplay photoshoot early due to not feeling well, I enjoyed the rest of the day. The "paper to ponies" panel was nice, despite Jim taking a shot at those who didn't like EQG. Ech, I say!

Saturday was a lot more fun despite higher levels of nausea. Lots of cosplay panels, as well as the contest. The best part however was the GGG! Hoo boy, that was a blast. Even though I didn't get to ballroom dance very much, it was still very enjoyable! I was really shocked when Twilight came up and said the night was almost over. I looked at my phone and saw the time, and I was like "WTF it's 11 already?! How?!". Also felt quite sad when it was over because I wanted to dance some more! Ah well...next year, I guess. Maybe I'll make a suggestion to schedule more time for the event next year.

With the improvements I made to my Hoity cosplay, I got nothing but glowing compliments from people who took my picture. "Sick cosplay", "Perfect Hoity Toity", etc. But also a bunch of people calling me Fancy Pants, so...yeah. :P Had at least 40 people stop me to take my picture over the two days, as well as tons of photographers being present at the cosplay photoshoots, so I'm expecting a shitload of pictures! Also got a nice, fancy photo of myself from a fellow RI Brony.

As for the Vendor Hall, again this year, I didn't really find anything that caught my eye. The couple of things that I did take notice of, were both really damn overpriced. $85 for a 6-inch plush? ECH!

Not sure if any of you saw me at the convention, but I did run into Jake the Army Guy, which was lovely. Not exactly difficult to find me though, seeing as I was pretty much the only Hoity Toity there! I saw a female Hoity but she was at a vendor booth; didn't see her anywhere else.

Overall, a very lovely time. Can't wait for next year!

EDIT: Finally found a couple photos of my cosplay. Not the best shots, but still decent enough.

I have no idea, tbh. Every bronycon that I've gone to, I got really really nauseous during it, and then felt fine when I got back home, so I can only assume that it has something to do with anxiety making me nauseous.
