So, my friend Mika had told me about J-popcon coming up soon, and I had never been to a convention before, so this got me really excited. J-popcon is basically an anime convention being held in the DGI city in Denmark. I was so excited and asked my mom to help make cosplay some days before. I was going as Frisk from the game Undertale! I also have Tenten cosplay that my mom made for me to a birthday party where you had to dress up as a celebrety, so I was just like ‘F*** it, I’m gonna cosplay!’ back to the topic ^-^; My mom sewed me a heart to be Frisks’ soul, and basically Frisks clothes. It consist of a blue shirt with two purple stripes, and either shorts or pants with brown boots. We made the shirt baggy in the arms and bottom, and made shorts that was a little tighter than planned… But it ended up amazing!
I was going with Mika, and he were gonna be Feliciano/Italy from hetalia. At first I was very nervous. We had to stand in a line, where I am SO grateful that we came so early when it had just opened, because the line ended up being like 20 meters later. When we stood in line and had to pay, I thought that I had gotten enough money, but accidentally mistook my paper money for one of higher value, so Mika helped me pay >.<;. I called my mom and asked her to come with some money, so I could get some merchandise and pay back Mika. She came after around 10 mins and gave me a bunch of money, and I was so happy like ‘QwQ Thx so much!!’ She took some pics of Mika and I and drove away again.
When we went into the building I was so amazed by everything, since I only have two friends that really have the same interests as me and watches anime. I saw some other Frisks and so many anime characters that I knew. I was really nervous at first, but after a while I got more comfortable. We went up the stairs and there was a group of around 5 Frisk and a Chara about to take a group photo, when they saw me and said “Join the Frisks! #JoinTheFrisks” and I was still a tad nervous but went with them in the group photo and continued with my friend. We looked around the small shops and I bought a Danish manga. I got taken photos of me by some people and I felt really happy ^.^ Mika also took some photos, one being Spain from Hetalia.
We looked around qat that level when Mika showed me some stairs down. We went down and walked through a hall till we got to this HUGE hall with a bunch of merchandise. When I saw it I felt like it exploded in my face and I saw so many stuff that I didn’t know what to get. There was so many people in cosplay too, so I almost felt as if Denmark was overpopulated and where they’ve been all my life. ‘Cause I have never met other people with my interests other than Mika and another friend. I bought a Tokyo Ghoul cup and a Kurama figure from Naruto.
It was so much fun, but in the end we had to end the day and go home. My mom came and got us and dropped Mika off at home. But of course we were gonna come the two other days too!
So the next day at around 14:00 my mom drove us over to the DGI city, after having picked up Mika. I was gonna go as Frisk all days, while Mika went as Ciel Phantomhive. When we got there I wasn’t nervous one bit, and was really excited again. We missed all the shows yesterday so we would try and get to some today. When we got there there were even more people than yesterday! And just before going I had watched the new OVA for Noragami Aragoto, and I had taken a bunch of pics of Yatos expressions since he always makes so many funny expressions, especially in the OVAs. So every time I saw a Yato cosplayer I let out this low screech and mentally died XD.
We went around and look at the shops on the first floor again, and I bought two badges. One being Meliodas from The Seven Deadly Sins, and the other being Asriel from Undertale ^-^. We decided to check out the second floor and saw a booth making Origami. We went to the guy and talked with him a bit while making jumping frogs and frog eaters. It was nice and the guy told stories of when his kid was small. We said our goodbyes and continued. We went into the big hall again and I decided on bying two keychains from One Punch Man, the two being Saitama and Genos, and an Eren fan. I had been looking at the Nemo Neko plushies for a while and didn’t know which to get, so after having walked around and looking at them each time we passed, Mika ended up saying “Alright, I’m done, just buy one now!” and I ended up getting a white one with orange ears and a brown spot on the head. When we got it Mika/Ciel took it and said we had to try and catch a Sebastian (Since the character he’s from has a demon butler called Sebastian) but there werent many and the few we saw already had a Ciel with them. So we didn’t find a Sebastian since it was late and most of them had probably left >^<.
Outside there was another building where there were stuff in, and when you walked to it you had to go through this dark alley-like place that we named The Dealer Place. So sometimes we asked each other if we wanted to go to The Dealer Place.
Mikas phone needed to charge so we crashed on the floor beside an outlet and plugged in the charger he brought with. While sitting there Mika/Ciel tried numerous times to steal my soul so he could give it to Sebastian instead of his own, which lead to a wrestling match of trying to get my soul from the other. I ended up getting it and hissed at him =.=. We watched some Undertale crack videos and continued when it had charged enough.
When it was around 20:00 we wanted to get to this game called Mafia. If you don’t know what it is, you basically get cards with roles on them, and some are villagers and some are murderers. Then theres other roles like Policeman, Doctor, Fool, killer and all that. It was really fun and although I almost didn’t say a word I still laughed. So the first time they suspected me and asked what I had in defence, I replyed with “I’m a pacifist.” so I was let off the hook the first time, but the second time I panicked since I was a villager but didn’t know how to defend myself so I just said “I’m a pa- well I don’t really have anything to defend myself with..” that made the others syspecious, but luckily– or not so luckily– the emergency evacuation alarm went off, and I panicked slightly. In my head I imagined terror attacks and shooting massacres and kind of traumatized myself, so my hands started shaking and I muttered “Panick, panick, panick, panick…” while walking out. When we stood outside, waiting for my moms boyfriend to come get us, two fire trucks and police cars passed us over to the building. They drove away shortly after. Nothing really happened and Mikas big brother was there too. It was midnight and we were all standing out in the cold. Mikas brother said it was probably some idiot who pressed the fire alarm. So my moms boyfriend picked us up and dropped Mika and their big brother off. I was really exhausted too when I got home, so I went straight to bed after getting some night food and brushing my teeth. (of course a pajamas too)
So this was the last day J-popcon 2016 was open to. It was sad, so we just thought that we had to get the best out of it. I got picked up by Mikas mom I think, and she drove Mika, his brother and I to the DGI City. J-popcon was closing at 17:00 around there so we didnt have nearly as much time. When we got there we looked around the shops again as all the other days. We were mostly in the big hall, and we decided to continue our hunt for a Sebastian. We missed most of the events the previous days and we came too late for the funny stuff in the morning. I cri. While walking around we looked some more merchandise stuff. Mika had already gotten an Alpaca yesterday. I got a Naruto Shippuden poster, a movie called ‘The girl who leapt through time’ and another chibi figure of Soul from Soul Eater. Mika found a wild Sebastian without a Ciel and toook a picture with him. So the Sebbie hunt was a success! The Sebastian had a group of friends that held my Nemu Neko plush and asked Mika what it was called, and he pointed to me and said “Ask Frisk” and he asked me and I had no idea what I should call it, so this happened: “Uhhhhhhhh (the uh lasted around five secs) C…Caramel!” and the guy imitated me and looked at imaginary key words on his hands and repeated what I said to joke about it a little. But it got a name at least. ^-^;
We walked around outside, and the day seemed to go by so fast. Mika was Ciel again and suddenly their eyepatch broke. So he called his mom and got a new one and an extra. We chilled at an outlet again on second floor and we fought for my soul again. He threw it and I pretended to die and fell face first in my Nemo Neko plushie, just laying there for around like 15 secs when a guy came and gave it back to me so I could revive x3. We continued again when it had charged enough, and since the day was nearing 17 we went to the ending ceremony. I got some food first though. When we got there we stood together with Mikas brothers group of friends and watched. When it was over they played the pokemon theme on a whitescreen where all started singing with. I would have sung with them if it had been the English version… Mika thought that too. I like the English version better.
The shops and booths were closing and everyone was starting to leave. I think Mikas mom or dad picked us up and drove me home. Or maybe it was my mom… I don’t really remember. When I got home I slumped down in the couch and felt satisfied with everything that happened. I put up the poster and placed the figures on my desk table.
I chilled for the rest of the day, being the first time I got a prober meal. Since the last three days I didn’t get lunch and dinner. Only breakfast and a lil’ nightfood. Funny enough I didn’t feel hungry at all over there only this day where I got some noodles with chicken and vengables.
So that was my experience with J-popcon. We took pictures of 7 persons; Death the Kid from Soul Eater, Denmark/Mathias Køhler form Hetalia, Marco Bott/bodt from Attack on Titan, Alois Trancy from Black Butler, England/ Arthur Kirkland and Spain/Antonio Fernándes. All in all it was really fun and exciting and I am hoping to go to the next convention here in Denmark ^w^.
