A-Kon and Vocaloids

So hey! I’ve been gone a long time and I really missed blogging. It was fun talking to DD and S14, and Bookaddict, and everyone else! But…now that I’m here and back, I can’t think of anything to write. Let’s see…

Oh! I’ve been listening to a lot of Bowling for Soup and Vocaloids lately! If you don’t know what a Vocaloid is, click here. My favorite Vocaloid, who is technically a Yandeloid (a specific type of Vocaloid…there are a lot of different groups, so you also have to pay attention to what category the Vocaloid is in) is Taito Shion. 


A-Kon (yes, it is spelled with a K) is an anime convention where a bunch of anime nerds get together with their money and buy a whole bunch of anime stuff, enter cosplay contests, and just have fun seeing all the anime and manga they can buy! It’s like a huge gathering of the ultimate anime fans.

Well, until recently, I had no way of going to A-Kon 2012. I had asked my mom if I could go with a group of girls and her mom, but my mom said no because she didn’t know this  other mom personally. Then, since A-Kon is on June 1st-3rd (only a week after my birthday), I asked if she would take us and pay for the hotel for my birthday present. I knew it was asking a lot and I really thought the answer would be no, but she talked to my dad and they decided it would be AWESOME AND REALLY EXTRA SUPER FUN for Casey, Trystan, and possibly my friend Andi who I mentioned here and here. 



I couldn’t believe my ears. Had my brain malfunctioned? Was one of the Cleos in the hearing department sleeping on the job again? (They tend to do that you know, because if I scratch the inside of my ear I go “deaf” [kind of but not really] until I scratch it the right way again) NOPE! The hearing Cleos were perfectly awake and checking all of the sound systems just to be sure. They even replayed the recording of my mom saying, “Your dad and I decided it would be fun for you and your friends to go to A-Kon with me as a chaperon.”

“Big” Cleo paused and was speechless. The hearing Cleos burst into the Brain Offices and screamed, “THEY SAID YES!” The entire office jumped for joy! Every cubicle, every track runner, and ever single Cleo in the voting room YELLED AND SCREAMED.

This caused “Big” Cleo to jump up and down and glomp her mommy.  Mommy didn’t like it though, so we unfortunately had to sit still. 

On a completely unrelated subject, the hearing department Cleos have speakers set up around the brain so that every office can hear what’s going on. They work with the audio stuff to make sure nothing malfunctions.

Back to A-Kon. If you want to know who I’ll be cosplaying, here’s a link to his information and personality stuff: http://fanloid.wikia.com/wiki/Taito

And here are a few pictures of him:


And for the record, no my jacket will not be open. That’s just gross considering I’m a girl (and not a whore). =_= 

But to get my hair like Taito’s and not have to buy a wig (the tickets to A-Kon cost $50 [might have already mentioned that] and to get his coat and pants it’s about $80) since that is one of the most expensive parts, my mom suggested we just cut and permanently dye my hair since I like it short and wanted to dye it purple anyways.


Casey will be cosplaying Zeito, Taito’s younger brother. Well, we’re not entirely sure yet, because right now just getting the ticket is hard for Casey since her parents rarely pay her allowance when she does her  and her brother’s chores. So, we think we’ll be lucky if we can get Casey to come with us so she might not cosplay. But if she does, this is who she’ll be:


Trystan will be cosplaying Taito and Zeito’s older brother, Akaito. I know Trystan has enough money for her ticket, but it’s a matter of how she’ll get the cosplay. Trystan’s changed her mind like a million times so she needs to pick one since the Kon is only 2 months away. (It’s the first three days of June, so we don’t even have  three months). But this is Akaito:


I haven’t talked to Andi about cosplaying and whatnot, but I know that she’s either going with her older sister or she’s looking for a ride. I have Health with her today, so I’m going to ask her about A-Kon and stuff then.

Well, that’s why I was so excited and happy today. Casey and I were buzzing about A-Kon in between our random talks in the brief three-four minutes we see each other in the hallway. Oh, I almost forgot!

If you want to hear Taito, Zeito, and Akaito sing, here are links to some of their songs:

Welp, thanks for reading, hope to hear from you soon, and glad to be back!
