In the beginning of last week I got a visitor aaaaaaaaaaall the way from Italy! JadeFelt, one of my awesome assassin minions, decided to come and pay me a visit i my home town a few days before we go to GameX/Comicon 2015! 😀 ❤ I live in a really smal town so there is not really much to see but I gave her a tour of our town, took her to her firs swedish fika, we played games, watched movies and had a great time!
Then on Thursday it was time to go to Stockholm for the con on friday! We were gonna have kind of a stream family meetup at the con so I was really exited and a bit nervous to meet everyone. But omg everyone is just as awesome IRL as they are in the stream chat! Thank you so much for coming to meet me and eachother guys! I had a great wekeend! I love you all! ❤
From left to right (Twitch names): Tomtebov, DragonDalek, ÄDD (Edsclaw), Randomseb, Keewee (Kiiwiiii), Me, Peter-kun (Eakathor), Hellan, JadeFelt, Kielb (Larsson), Borka.
There were ALOT of awesome cosplayers at the con! I posted tons of photos on my facebook, CLICK HERE to see them all! ^^
In my opinion the con was good BUT there were not enough games! 😦 The games aspect of GameX/Comicon were really small, not enough to play or to buy! 😦 But it was still a great experience and I had so much fun! ^^ Hanging out at the con, we went to a halloween party in Stockholm, we got a bit lost tryig to go back to the hotel because of lying signs and a GPS that told us to go in circles (left, left, left) ;D, played games in the hotelroom.. Summary: Great weekend! ❤ Already looking forward to next year! ^^ ❤
On monday the con was over but me, Peter, Jade and DragonDalek still had one day left to spend in Stockholm so the awesome Likilato offered to give us a mini tour! First we went to visit a gamestore in I’ve wanted to visit for a long time, Stockholm’s Serie & Skivhandel! A small and very cosy store FILLED with games! If you are lucky enough to live in the Stockholm area you have to pay it a visit! So many games and such a nice staff and owner! ❤ Oh, don’t forget to check out his instagram!
We also played LaserTag! (I now know I can’t aim at all IRL) xD It was quite a workout tho! I kida wish we had one in our town maybe I could get some exercise! xD We also stopped by a place that had some pinball machines! 😀
Then we went to Webbhallen that probably has the coolest game themed interior design possibible! :O ❤ Games built into the tables, Metal Slug wall and screens on the wall showing streams! 😀
BEST TOILET EVVAH!!! ❤
I really wanted that Journey paintig! So amazing! ❤ And of course the Grim Fandango one too! Both would look really good on one of my walls! 😀
Blue Potion Cafe! 😀 I wish my kitchen looked like Minecraft! xD ❤ Oh and I stared talkig briefly to a guy sitting next to the counter here and working on a game, if there is a small chanse you are reading this I totally forgot to say: Good luck with your game! It’s gonna be great! 😀
Loved the Portal hallway! And they had twikies at the cafe so we had to try them! ^^
And thank you so much to the awesome Webbhallen employee that gave me some Assassins Creed Syndicate posters and pillar! And of course thanks to Likilato for asking if they had anythig they didn’t need anymore of course! 😀
We had never tried Starbucks so as an ending to the tour we just had to try it! It was amazing! :3
After an awesome weekend together it was time to go home! I’m gonna miss all of you but atleast we see eachother in the stream! ^^ And I’m gonna start saving for next years GameX right way so I have more to spend, there was so much stuff I wish I could have bought! But I didn’t go home emptyhanded, here is the loot I got this weekend! 😀 ❤
On gameX I adopted a kitty and a little batman! ^^
Jade also bought me these as a gift! Thank you so much! ❤ I love them! You are so sweet!!! (I did find a space for it btw!) xD ❤ ❤ ❤
At Stockholm’s Serie & Skivhandel I really wanted to buy EVERYTHING! xD But this I what I came home with!
When I buy games I often go by what the front looks like, does it have a cool cover? SOLD! xD So I really couldn’t resist Utopia! The cover image is so amazing and well done! You can really tell someone put alot of work and heart into making it! ❤ Betrayal just sounded cool so I got that one too! 😀
I also got Bedlam with the overlay and box for the Vectrex, a new Dreamcast since mine is kinda broken, The Ottifants for Sega Master System, Ecco the Dolfin for Sega Megadrive, Heavenly Sword for Ps3 and the swedish version of Chicken Little for ps2! (It was only 10 sek (Like 1$) so I thought it could come home with me too! Haha!)
I had a great time and I can’t wait until next year! Everyone start saving NOW so we can have a even bigger stream family meetup next year! ^^ ❤
Oh, btw… Have I ever told you guys how difficult it is to take pictures of stuff in an apartment that has 3 cats i it?? xD Well I made 2 mini comics to illustrate! xD
I had a blast this weekend! We went to Gothenburg to go to RSM, a retro game convention and probably as close to nerd heaven on earth you can get! ❤ Tons of games, tons of people and tons of fun! In this post I'm gonna show you what I bought! 😀 I always start saving for RSM the day after the con basically, just alittle here and there to make sure I can go each year. This year I did not go as crazy with the shopping as last year, I had a budget and I only went alittle above it! 😀 Here is what I got:
This was really cool, it’s the press-release version of Fairytale Fights for ps3, and it looks like a book! 😀 I also got a new screen for my Game Boy, a Zelda Iphone shell and A FREE BATMAN! 😀 ❤ Yay! Haha Even though I don’t have a C64 yet I just had to buy these two games, the fronts were just priceless so I had to have them! The I.Ball dude kind of looks like batman right?? I mean the design of him, exept from the fact that he is a ball! He even have the same crooked half smile! And this mermaid was just so….. wow! The look on that poor divers face, pure panic! xD I also got YOSHI SLIPPERS and Rush n’ Attack for nes! ^^ I also found some Vectrex games! The Armor Attack + overlay my sister sneaked off and got for me and then hid in my bags! I was so scared when I found it when I was unpacking later, for a few seconds I thought I had accidentally stolen it! xD Haha! Thank you again sis! <3<3<3<3<3 And here we have the traditional gaming themed head wear I have gotten each year so far on RSM! This year I got a Mario beanie! 😀 I also found inFamous: First Light REALLY cheap! 😀 I added 2 gaming cups to my collection and Tetris coockie cutters! I also bought 2 Sega Megadrive games, Lemmings 2: The Tribes and Zoop! I have no idea what Zoop is, some kind of puzzle game it seems. I was just really drawn to the front! 🙂 I also got some japanese Gameboy games, Hamtaro something, “another random game with a hamster” 1 and 2, Kirby’s Dreamland and something I’m guessing might be a cooking game! xD The awesome Likilato was also at RSM and he was selling games at the Söders Spel & Skivhandel booth! After I did some shopping at his booth I got to choose a game for free in his loot box, I went with Stuart Little 2 for Ps1! Thank you again Likilato! ^^ This year I bought alot of games that I felt was visually beautiful or funny, I took a dive in a Snes box and found alot of cool looking games, the two most beautiful was definetly Romancing Saga 2 and 3! The japanese really have a talent for making stunning game fronts! The game to the right of them I have no idea what it is but it looked cool! xD I also got Tetris, some other “pretty front game” and the game with the boys on the front I bought because Seb said it was fun! 😀 I bought Titan just because the guy on the front was so funny! That facial expression is so awesome! xD And all dressed in what looks like some kind of latex suit! And of course… EXPLOTIONS! This game must be packed with action judging by the front! Haha! xD All these games I got at the retrospel.se booth! If you are swedish check out their online store! 😀 I’m very happy with my shopping this year, I met alot of very nice sellers and got some great deals! Thank you so much! <3<3<3 The cats were very happy when we came home, Gin became a “Gin-sticker” and stayed as close to me as he could until he finally purred me to sleep! That’s why I’m posting this blog post one day late, I had written about half of it when his superpower was too much for me and I just fell asleep! He is a grey fluffy little Jigglypuff! xD I did however manage to try one of my new tea cups before I was in dream land! ^^ Oh! Btw, did you spot all the batmans? He is hiding in every picture :)))
What a great weekend I’ve had! It was such a great con this year! 😀 The 8 h drive was SO worth it! I’m currently sittning in the car on my way home and most of the pictures are on the camera so all I can do is give you guys a sneaky peak and I’ll do a bigger RSM post later! 🙂 (Photo by my friend Jon) This is little more than half of the RSM hall, the other side was packed with people too! :O My tradition of always buying a game themed head wear lives on! I got this awesome Mario beanie! ❤ And of course a RSM t-shirt! 😀 I got some awesome loot too (and a free Batman)! But the loot I will show you guys later! 😀 *hugs*
The last day of Comi Con / GameX I wanted to play everything! xD But even though I’m getting more and more used to playing while people watch (in my stream) I still get SUPER nervous when there are peolpe around when I play! Weird! xD But I’m working on it! Practising on the stream! ;)) But I did manage to play some games! ^^
GameX this year was really much fun! I got to meet alot of great people, see ALOT of awesome cosplays and play some games! ^^ I can’t wait until next year! (I’m gonna start saving for it NOW) xD ❤
Blurry Link is sooo happy to try the buster sword! 😀
The sneaky alien is upto no good! :O (And the predator just walks by!) Oh no! He attacked my friend zack! xO
Don’t worry! Zack can take some hits! Fight! Fight! Fight! xD
Star Wars Parade! 😀 Darth Wader was in the lead! (Didn’t get a good picture!) x(
These were not cosplays but still pretty cool! The companion cube was a boom box and the R2D2 and scary wheelchair lady was remote controlled and just cruced around scaring people! xD Well, R2D2 was not so scary, but the lady was! xD
(STAY TUNED FOR DAY 4) ^^
Omg there are so much cool stuff this year when it comes to merchandise! I’ll tell this story using mostly pictures! (I did promise alot of pictures!) 😉
There is ALOT of cool movie replicas! The one of Jhonny Depp frome Lone Ranger almost looked real! Scary real! xD The 501 Leigion builds Star Wars Replicas to sell for charity! Pretty awesome! And there was a guy who showed how to build your own R2D2! ^^
STAY TUNED FOR DAY 2! ^^
Omg this weekend was so much fun even though everyting did not exactly go as planned! x) We arrived in Gothenburg really late the day before, so we didn’t get much sleep, we had a cosplay emergency that needed to be taken care of before we could even go to the convention and there was a 2 hour wait in line before we even got in! x( At least we saw some awesome cosplayers while waiting and there was a Mario walking around giving people hugs! ^^ It’s not everyday you get to hug your childhood hero so of course I had to capture this opportunity! xD haha! This guy cosplaying wheatley from portal was great! So hilarious! xD Check out his DeviantArt if you want to see more! ^^
My friend as Zack Fair from Final Fantasy 7! Check out his Instagram if you want to see more of him! ^^
When we finally got in it was awesome!! Alot bigger than last year and soooooo much people! There was so much stuff to look at, I was so busy browsing I totally forgot abot taking pictures, so I only have a few from inside! (I never got close enough to find out what this thing was but it looked so weird and funny) xD My brother and his daughter came with us to check out the con! ^^ She is such a sweetheart! She also bought some games! ^^ I got to meet these two too! Such nice guys working at a game store called Spel och Sånt here in sweden! ^^
The amazing Charles Martinet was at RSM this year! He is the man behind the voice of Super Mario, Paarthurnax from Skyrim etc. What an great guy! He had such energy and he was suuuper nice! He was at the con the whole day signing autographs and talking to fans! ^^
And last but not least… I’ll show you my loot! 😀 My autographs from Charles Martinet! (He gave me one extra because I was so nervous I forgot to tell him the card was supposed to be for my sister x) So I got 3 in total!) This is a press kit of Assassins Creed! With a beautiful metal box witch will look awesome in my AC shelf! ^^ My brother bought these two for me! ^^ (THANK YOU) The reason he got me the Xbox Live is, and I quote “Now you have no exuse, buy Dark Souls 2 and play with me online” I guess you are right big brother Haha! x) This is Odama for Game Cube (Japanese) Such a pretty box! :O I just had to buy this game! (I don’t even have a C64) x) But this front art is just too cute! 😀 Look at the mouse! Awwwwww xD Last year I bought a Link hat at RSM so I thought I would keep the tradition going by buying a new fun hat! So I got a Mario hat this time! ^^
And now! The best buy of the day! 😀 I hesitated a bit because of the pricetag but after really thinking about it I knew I would hate myself if I didn’t buy it! After all I’ve been looking for it for yeeeears! And this one is in super good condition with nothing missing! And this in a way completes my FF collection! Yaaay! ^^ (At least from one end, they will probably never stop releasing them) Haha! Wow! This post got long! Sorry about that! xD Hope you liked it anyway! **Hugs**
Finally!! THE GAMEX UPDATE! Woooooo! xD GameX this year got a bit hectic to say the least. The cosplay was not done, I had just gotten a slipped disc and lumbago (was eating alooot of painkillers) and worst of all my sweet little kitty cat Gin got sick the day before we were leaving for Stockholm. His sickness was not so serious (yet…. =P ) He had crystals in his urine making it hard for him to… do his buissness! (he had it once before and he got fine right after the treatment) so we took him to the vet. That night I worked so hard to finish my cosplay but it was soo hard while Gin was not feeling so good, I keept one eye on the cosplay and the other on him so I’ve might not have been working as fast as I could have! =P Somewhere at 5 or 6 am I gave up and said “I will bring everything with me and finish it at the hotel”. I was so tired from stress and worry so I just needed a few hours of sleep…
At around noon we packed the car full of cosplay stuff, and a litte luggage 😉 I kissed my kitty-cats good bye and then it was go time! We were off to stockholm and gameX 2013! This was a thursday, the 31st of oktober and we were staying for the whole con, until 3rd november! We were so exited! My friend had also built a cosplay, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy Crisis Core and it was awesome (and finished =P ) so I was a bit stressed out about getting mine done on time and having time to enjoy the con of course! ^^ There was a cosplay contest on friday and we were a little tempted to try our luck there, but first I needed a finished cosplay! x)
We arrived at the hotel and quickly carried our luggage up to our room, then we ran down to finally check out this years gameX. We always stay at an awesome hotel called Victoria Tower sitting riiiight next to where GameX is! So convenient! ^^ At first glanze is was awesome, then we notised how small it was compared to past years, nintendo wasn’t ever there :O And sadly not many cosplayers at all the first day but there was alot of games to try! And swedens first chance to try the PS4! (Woohoo) And there were alot of merchandise! Nerd-heaven! xD
We also tried to find out more about the cosplay contest and were to sign up but no one seemed to know anything, not even the people in the cosplay booth! (haha) Then finally we found someone who said “just be there before the contest starts at 17.30 and it’s fine” Fair enough! ^^ We didn’t stay the whole first day because someone had a cosplay to finish =P I had to make and put on all the fake leather straps to make all the parts stick to me. Was alot more work than I imagined it would be and I stayed up until 1 or 2 am before I went to sleep..
Cosplay day! Yay! I was still not done but I was sooo close that I could taste it! No way it would not get done, maybe an hour or two then it was gonna be finished! So after some yummy hotel breakfast I continued working. That’s when I get a phonecall from my dad, he had promised to watch over Gin for me, and he had gotten some complications from the treatment and was getting worse and worse. This made things alot harder! I was so worried and could not focus at all! This caused in things taking more time than it should have but after a few hours I was upto that point when I was gluing the last pice of strip on the last armor piece.. and what happens? I burn my fingers on hot glue that just came out of the glue gun! I was gonna put some preassure on the strip while the glue dried and it must have slipped out on the sides of the strip… IT HURT LIKE “#%&! x(
So here I was, so worried about my kitty I just could cry, had just burned two fingers on my left hand, and I still needed to put on my cat nose, do all of my cat makeup, put in the cat eye lenses and help my friend with his Zack hair.. all using one hand =P The burnt hand wanted to kill my fingers unless I kept it under cold water! x( After alot of effort and stress we were finally both done!! Yaay! 😀
My makeup was terrible (somehow the grey color turned blue when it dried! xD ) and everything had been done while in panic mode but I was so happy to be done at last and at around 17.00 we hurried down to the con to go enter the contest. When we arrived we found the place of the contest at maybe 17.10-17.15 only to find out we could not enter! We were too late! 😦 “If you had gotten here like 10 minutes ago you could have entered, sorry!” Omg, I was so sad, so close and all because I messed up and burnt my fingers!!!!!!! x( *sob* Oh well, not much to do about it so we just watched show and all the amazing cosplayers, I never would have won but it would have been fun to at least try! It was too dark to take any pictures in there but I caught some of them on camera afterwards! ^^ (Warning! Alot of Pictures) xD
Look! look! I found another Skyrim cosplayer! 😀 And she picked a figth! :O Or was it me? 😉 Don’t remember! *lol* We ended up having alot of fun even though we missed the contest. Still I was very worried about Gin, I even thought about leaving Stockholm early and go home to him, but when we got back to our hotel room that night my dad called and said Gin had been “hospitalized” at the vet and he would not get to come home until sunday, same day we were gonna get home again. So since me going home would not make any difference, I stayed.
We played some games, met some awesome cosplayers and me and my friend got into some more fights! ;D
Don’t worry, no one was harmed! 😉 And we met Lightning again, her cosplay was amazing! :O
And I just have to show off my friends AWESOME buster sword that he made! Made out of wood! :O It’s so pretty! :’D
The last day of the con, I was not able to wear my cosplay today because we had to leave our hotel room at noon, so if I put it on I had no place to get it all off for the car ride home. But I at least wore the jagged crown! Today there was supposed to be a cosplay catwalk but it was canceled, instead there was a mini photo shoot!
As the big Assassins Creed fan girl that I am I just had to get a picture with this awesome banner!
Then out of nowhere I was ambushed! By an assassin! :O (I was not very sad about that as you can see!)
Then a Soldier came to my rescue and handed me a gun! ^^
(Yeah I know I’m not holding it right! My friend keeps nagging me about it! lol ;D But I never held a gun before, cut me some slack will ya! ^^)
I guess this wraps up my GameX/Cosplay post! Finally huh?? =) We had alot of fun and I can’t wait until GameX 2014! Kinda hoping it gets bigger again though! ^^
