So me and nebula-stag went to Sacanime this weekend. It was our first time cosplaying Homestuck and his first time going to a convention/cosplaying altogether! :D On Friday I went as Fionna, Saturday we were Feferi and Eridan, and Sunday we were Marshall Lee and Fionna (nebula-stag was the one playing electric guitar.)
And our final opinion… we had an absolutely amazing time!!
I’m sad to hear about people saying they thought the Homestuck fandom was really badly behaved. I personally didn’t notice it, but then again me and nebula-stag did our own thing and didn’t really socialize much with any groups xD But everyone that talked to us was super nice, and we got a bunch of free pocky and were given buttons and keychains by super nice people! And I loved how other cosplayers threw out references, especially to Eridan xD I was so thrilled with the attention his cosplay got ( Cause I totally had to talk him into it, you know :DDD)
The only people we had any sort of issue with were some people that were in the hall blaring techno music and rough housing, and kept touching the really cool alien guy. That was the only disrupting crowd we saw :c
But overall, we got so much positive attention, we will definitely be bringing them back for winter after they get a bit of upgrading with better fins, horns, and I want to make our weapons C:
Thanks so much for everyone being so nice to us and making this con my favorite so far!
Also, if you took a picture of either of us at Sacanime, pleeaase send it to me or tag us! I love to see the photos we got! Thank you C:
