Oh, and I’m back from PAX. Got to see and hang out with kissing-whiskey, chuckfelsea and downtothedepths (it’s 3 am, i feel like I’m forgetting people, sorry!)
My cosplay was incredibly well received. I’m absolutely blown away by all of the comments and reactions I got on it. I was super critical of a lot of detains in the costume but apparently I did pretty good with it? Day 1 I did the Pig mask, it was miserable inside that thing but people fucking LOVED it! Met a great Biker cosplay as soon as I got to the queue room and we hit it off. I got stopped. We made it to the Hotline Miami 2 booth at the same time by chance and the people working it loved us! Whoever is in control of the @hotlinemiami twitter posted a picture of us there! https://twitter.com/HotlineMiami/status/454638441947750400 Towards the end of the night in the convention center another Jacket cosplayer stopped me in a hallway and asked me if I was the jacket they’d been hearing about (I didn’t have my mask on at the time) Apparently I was the one? I never expected people to really dig the costume at all. Day 2 I did the Rooster mask, wore it on top of my head a ton, people dug it but I didn’t get stopped half as much as the pig. I went back to the booth to play again, ran into 2 horse head Jacket cosplayers and another Biker and we all suddenly got swarmed by maybe 20 people in rapid succession for photos which was pretty awesome. One was picked up by Andrew Parsons of Devolver Digital (Hotline Miami’s publisher) and tweeted out. https://twitter.com/threewayswitch/status/455073814289072128 I didn’t bother with the wolf mask. Day 3 I just decided to be me and keep a fairly low profile.
Erm… To be honest I’m fucking fried and can’t think to fill in anymore of this. Maybe I’ll do a full writeup in a day or two. Probably not.
oh, and because of a bad accident on one of the interstates, we missed the last ferry home and had to drive all the way around, adding about 3 hours to the trip :/
And some idiot on a motorbike was stopped in the middle of the road and I think trying to walk his bike directly across traffic that was all doing around 70. Nearly hit the crazy son of a bitch. So happy I was so alert at the time. I was maybe 2 feet away from him at the farthest when I swerved around him.
