Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica | Sakura-Con 2013
Recap: Sakura-Con 2013SAKURA-CON, WHERE DID YOU GO?!?!?! ;;;A;;; I know it only lasts for a weekend, but honestly, it feels like I blinked just once and the con was over! That being said, there aren't enough words to express what an incredible time I had. It was especially exciting to have my brother ~Dingdongpo tag along for his first con experience, and of course, a trip that involves seeing *Theelfinartist, ~KingLuke2222 and their family is always great! ;'D ❤
Onto the recap!
{Thursday} | {Pre-reg}
:icontheelfinartist: and :iconkingluke2222: picked :icondingdongpo: and I up from the airport in the afternoon! 'Twas a beautiful reunion! ❤ After some packing and organizing we headed off to check into the hotel. I was dressed as casual Mio and *Theelfinartist was dressed as casual Ritsu from K-ON!, so we had a quick photo shoot. We went to go pick up our badges where we ran into :iconai-rika:, as well as :iconkaze111:, :iconx-vaults:, and :iconexorcist143:!
{Fri

I'd like to dedicate this photo to my Grandma Carol who found her way home this morning. She’s free now, from both mental and physical illness, her soul no longer confined. I miss her so much right now, yet it's a relief to know that her suffering is through. Nothing will be the same without her here... but I trust that we will be together again someday.

Madoka is right there in the picture. So then why does Homura have her hair ribbons?

We had just met our Homura cosplayer for the first time that day. ^_^; We didn't have an opportunity to plan with each other beforehand or anything! I guess we were too excited and frazzled to notice any inaccuracies. If we would've caught it, I suppose she could've removed them... Hehe, oh well. Yet another parallel timeline! XD

I would like to share my condolences, having recently lost a grandparent myself. Things will be tough at first, but she is one with the universe now. :hug:

The photo and costumes are great, btw.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss!
I know how emotional it is to lose a grandparent...
Your sad to see them go but like you mentioned glad they are in a better place.
I'm here for you if you ever need to talk!

You did an amazing job at portraying Madoka and making your outfit and everything about this whole group was just perfect! :')

I still can not find adequate words to express my love for our group and for how much I love your Madoka cosplay AND for how much I loved being able to contribute to the group by cosplaying Mami! I'm really at a loss, I adore the photo, your expression, everyone's poses, the edit you did to your soul gem.....
Yes, I am so grateful we were able to pull this all together, Madoka means so much to me! ♥

I want you to know that my whole family and I have been keeping you all in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers. My heart is breaking at your loss, but it is comforting (however painful it is to let her go home) to know her suffering is over and that we'll all be seeing her again someday. ♥
*hugs* Stay strong.

Same here, man!!! :'D WE WERE ACTUALLY COSPLAYING FROM MADOKA. WHEN WE LOOKED IN A MIRROR, IT WAS NOT US. SO SURREAL. I'm totally at a loss as well. ❤ Ah, but indeed, this photo is quite magical~ Thank you. ❤ We shall have many more Madoka adventures to look forward to!!!

I can't thank you guys enough for your thoughts and prayers for us. We're miles and miles apart, but even so, I've truly felt your guys' presence during this time. I'm so happy that she's now with God... It'll just take a little time to fully process the fact that I won't be able to visit her and laugh with her like I've done my whole life through.

*hugs in return* Love you dearly!!! ❤

YOU SAID IT COMPLETELY. JUST. YES. IT WAS US, BUT IT WASN'T AND I CAN'T--
You're very welcome. I know for sure we have SO many more Madoka adventures awaiting us in the future! ♥

It's our pleasure, really. We all love you and your family and I keep saying that, BUT! IT'S JUST TRUE, OK? ♥ ♥
It really warms my heart to hear that you can be so happy that she's with God. I know that's not the hard part, knowing she's with God in perfect health and peace, but rather having to be the one left behind. It's painful, but we're here for you. You have your wonderful, AMAZING family and friends to help you through these times of struggle.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Love you too~~

HEHE. WELL I'M SO GLAD THAT IT'S THE TRUTH!~ Ah, but exactly. Being the one left behind. It's such a strange and confusing feeling... BUT INDEED! Boy have I been blessed with awesome family and friends! :'D We'll all be here for each other when life gets tough. ❤

Ah, yes! Tiny words! Before you type what you want to type, you put: < sub >
But without the spaces. Does that make sense? I hope so! ^_^
