Gen Con Dispatches- Day 1

So, about to go to bed, when I remembered my promise to tell you about the con every day. Okay then.
Today was a good first day of the con. It turned out to be as fun as it's always been, and of course, I ran into the same familiar faces as always, and there was much catching up.
I went to the dealer hall and generally blew money as I do EVERY year. And it was... rather fast. Granted, I DID buy some Excel Saga DVDs for $20 off my friend with the $50 I brought for the day, and that $30 didn't last too long at everyone's favorite booth, Anime Palace, but what I bought was TOTALLY worth it. Let's see... I bought a Piplup with ice cream plushie (AKA the Epic Piplup) for $14, a mini Piplup for $6, an Empoleon keychain (also $6), a Gardevoir figure ($3) and my last dollar I spent on lunch (miso soup from Maki of Japan in the mall food court). Oh, and I owe one person $5 (for a Pokemon 4 DVD) and another a rare card (for buying me the smexy Darkrai figurine.) So yeah, Day 1 and I'm already in the hole.
After that, my feet were killing me from the heeled boots I wore for my Misa cosplay, so I chilled the rest of the day in Anime Avenue (where every year is like a family reunion). I watched Full Metal Panic: Fumoffu (hilarious anime), a few AMVs, and the beginning of something called When They Cry, which looked promising, but got boring and THAT'S WHAT VEOH IS FOR.
Anyway, onto the pics. Because of the pesky 4 pic limit I'm giving you the cliffs' notes version, so after the con I'll have everything up on my LJ, picwise, for you to enjoy.
LOOK! IT'S MISA!
Two guys in badass red trenchcoats packing serious heat (Vash from Trigun and Dante from Devil May Cry) and a girl who can kill you just by writing your name down. We're all screwed.
Look! Stuff! Including Epic Piplup!
Whatever could I be cosplaying tomorrow? Drawn as a random doodle as I talked with some friends.
