So, I’ve decided to do a new series of posts on my blog that will give you an insight into my life a bit more, it’s called ‘An Adventure’, which will be where when I adventure out of my shell (otherwise known as my house) for a specific event or if something fun happens I shall write the ‘adventure’ down in here for you guys to read.
My first adventure shall be on this blog, I went to a ‘Geek Meet’ by a town near me two week ago on Saturday with a few friends and let me tell you, it is one of the best things ever. I made so many new friends (which is shocking for an unsociable person like me), did laser tag and more! It was only my second or third time going but each one has been amazing and has let me make friends and even a boyfriend! (Gasps of shock, I know)
Lets start from the beginning, my friend, we’ll call them Danny, slept over mine and we Skyped our other friend, we’ll call him Nexus, and it was just a laugh. We got the cosplay sorted for the next day, drew in permanent marker (smart right?) what we needed to on our hands and arms to match the characters and just, had a laugh.
The next day, we, well I, woke up when the alarm went off, Danny was already awake. We got ready, me of course laying in bed for another half an hour. Trust me, me and mornings do not mix. Not at all. At this point I’d like to thank Danny for letting me lend their cosplays, not just this time but every time. She was a massive help into getting me into cosplaying in general and I am proud to say that more of my own have been ordered!
We were set up, wigs on, out the door and on the train by 11:42 where we met up with Nexus and another person, she was nice but I didn’t talk very much. Like I said, me and mornings don’t mix and I’m not the most sociable when there is a new person, but she was nice and I enjoyed listening to them all converse.
We arrived at quarter past twelve and leaving the train station is when I first got recognised, I was so happy, they asked if they could hug me and then barreled into me when I nodded. It was amazing. It was amazting to be recognised and for the fact I made a new friend, because that’s what we become.
I made new friends throughout the day, through a group of us cosplaying the same anime (but different characters) and even had proper photos took of us in a group photo! I made friends with someone else when they asked me for a selfie and we talked about how we hoth have no socail life. I made another friend by running around with one of the nerf guns they brought, they had the other, and pretending to shoot each other, using human shields and more!
I done laser tag, where they spelt my name wrong drastically (unsuprisingly) and managed to shoot one person numerous times and duel with others that were my friends on the oposite team.
I was hanging around with one person throughout most of the day and we definitely got closer, I found a way to tease her and found out a few things I didn’t know before.
I can say that for a day or so afterwards I slept alot, more than alot. The train ride home was also fun, laid back but fun.
That had to be one of the best days this year, I recomend going to one if you ever get the chance as they are always so fun and one of the best experiences I’ve had (and this is coming from an introvert).
Like if you liked, comment opinions or expierences of your own and share! Thankyou for reading. Any of you been to anything like this? Or any cons?
Bye for now,
