My 21st birthday was day 0 of Sakura Con (April 2), Washington's largest anime convention. I dressed up as Draculaura from Monster High with my own version of her Sweet 1600 birthday outfit. My sisters and I checked into our hotel for the weekend, got our tickets for the convention. After that we went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner with some friends where I had my first legal drink; a strawberry dackery (I think that is how it is spelled). I had two hehe. And a piece of birthday cake
After that my little sister went back to the hotel with our friend while my older sister and cousin went over to the Hardrock Cafe. They gave my a chocolate cake shot on the house which was nice. Next, my cousin was hungry so we went to a sushi place with a bar. I had Long Island Iced Tea. After that, my cousin decided it was time to head home and my sister and I started to head back to the hotel. I was kinda drunk (my first time believe it or not) so she had to hold my hand and direct me. It was kinda awkward because I was the only one in that area dressed up because we were kinda far away from the Convention Center. I guess I didn't really care; it was my 21st and I was having fun.
Some highlights from the con would be meeting David Vincent who voices Grimmjow from the anime Bleach and Senketsu from Kill La Kill. In case you are not firmilar with Kill La Kill, Senketsu is Ryuko's (the main character) talking badass sailor uniform. My sister was cosplaying and he signed the Senketsu that she was wearing and made herself. I was Ryuko's best friend Mako. Later that day my sister and I were standing chatting with some friends and behind us we heard "Ryuko!" We spun around and it was David Vincent! We got some selfies together and chatted a bit. It was an awesome experience.
I also waited in line for four hours with one of my very good friends to meet Johnny Yong Bocsh, who voices the character Ichigo Kurosaki. I consider that character to be like my brother. I told him that and I think that kinda weirded him out, but he liked the Easter Egg I gave him (I was giving them out because it was Easter Sunday).
As far as Memories In Vain goes, I have a huge case of writers block. I know I said I would have it out a while ago but I haven't done that and I apologize. I have, however, been writing a How To Train Your Dragon fanfic and I think it is coming along nicely. I hope to have it out soon.
