I poke Savannah awake about 7:15 and she gets ready too. Now, with all this time you'd think we would be fine right? Wrong, we didn't manage to leave till 8:09. Oops. But, we got all we needed to done and we looked great! We went to the hotel and to the fourth flour to the VIP Con suite.
It's been really noticeable this year how much more effort has been put towards catering to the men's side of the con. There was a whole men's track of panels and games and what not, as well as a good bit of male attendance. It was really nice to see how everything was expanding to accommodate everyone!

Yours truly certainly spent a good bit too much to be proud of Saturday and came out with some fantastic additions to my closet. Really, I only bought two big pieces, everything else was accessories and whatnot, which is what I really need. I am so awful about buying socks and hair bows and all the stuff that gives real variety to outfits. But I'm slowly remedying it!
After all our hectic shopping which we spent a solid 2 1/2 hours on, we headed over toy what is, since last years introduction, probably my favorite spectator sport of all time -- Tea Dueling! You can read and learn about tea dueling through their Facebook Page. Long story short, I am not a very good competitor. I lost first round. ;-; But my sister is a champ, she was runner up and only lost to the champion last year and this year she made it all the way again! Even more than that though, Kendall competed for the first time ever and won! Totally and completely kicked everyone's butts. Not only that but she got interviewed by a TV show about conventions and is going to be on TV!!
Lolita speed friending is basically like speed dating but instead of romantic interest it's talking to people to see if you hit it off or anything. You aren't supposed to talk to anyone you already know, and you only have two minutes for each person so you have to go fast!
That was pretty fun, but afterwards was the petticoat persuasion game! I had never played before but it seemed really fun. The goal is to run around and get other lolitas to give you their petticoats, whoever gets the most wins. And guess who won? This girl! I at first was just going around the panel room but then I started running around outside and asking lolitas for theirs. What's even funnier is that as lolitas gave me their petticoats they started running around and asking for me too! It's like a formed an alliance, haha!
I ended up with FOURTEEN petticoats all in all and felt like a totally fluff monster! The other guy had ten. It was really exciting, since I usually don't win things. I got a little bag with some goodies from the vendors for winning. But I'll be showing you those when I do my full haul post at the end.
When that wrapped up it was almost 5:00 and that was the time for the model call, luckily it was in the same room so I didn't have to rush anywhere.
Saturnight is a whole nother can of fish so I'll be making a separate post talking about it. I think I'll be going about it slightly differently. But that was Saturday! And wow was it fun.
Till next post. XOXO
