I was at Metrocon 2011 this year.
First day I was some random military bitch with my friend Holly
. People kept asking me if I was Germany from Hetalia. I was slightly upset. Only slightly. I'll tell you why in a minute.
Second day I was Death the Kidd
with my friend Jesse
as Patty. Our Liz couldn't make it and I was sad, but Jesse's twin Nikki was Maka and our Soul was their friend Jenna.
Third day I was a random fairy chick and I was ADORABLE. Here I am dancing all cute-like.BEGIN RANT
HETALIA HAS TAKEN OVER ALL OF THE CONS. IT'S ALMOST, IF NOT ALREADY, WORSE THAN NARUTO IN TERMS OF OVER-DONE-NESS AND OBNOXIOUSNESS. I DON'T MIND THE SHOW, I'M ACTUALLY A CASUAL FAN OF IT, BUT THE OTHER FANS AND THE COSPLAYERS HAVE RUINED IT FOR ME. Me and my friend Izu (She was the Cyberpunk Miku in case anyone saw her) were walking around looking for someone with a speaker we could use so we could dance and stuff. We saw a girl with a laptop bag + speaker + Laptop portable music setup (Playing CaramellDansen, go figure) , so we asked if we could plug in for a few minutes and do a few songs.
She looked at us like we were crazy, scoffed and said, "No. These speakers are reserved for CaramellDansen and the Stereotype Song
I was all, "What? Why? I mean I can understand restricting what plays on your speakers, they are yours, but why those two specific songs?" I was so confused.
She was all, and I shit you not, "Well, because c'mon, CaramellDansen, DUH. And the Stereotype Song is fun to play at Hetalia stuff."
I was all, "Oh. I wasn't aware that this was Hetalia
Con. I was under the impression it was MetroCon."
She didn't get my sarcasm. Dumb bitch.
Not only that, but the Karaoke Panel on the second day (aka. THE MOST FUN PART OF THE FRIGGIN CON) was cut short by the Hetalia World Conference. Lemme share with you the story of my RAEG. The Karaoke Panel started HALF AN HOUR LATE because the Grappling thing before it ran a bit late, and Metrocon schedules every panel down to the VERY LAST SECOND leaving absolutely NO time for setups and take-downs between panels, leading to the panels starting later and later as the day moves on.
But I digress.
Anyways, the panel finally
started, and things were fun. I was up on stage dancing and bein' EPIC with an awesome Kakashi cosplayer and a random black dude named Chad, and I even got to sing Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
(in a Kidd cosplay, no less LOLOLOL) Anyways, me, Bro-kashi and Chad formed the Black Ninja Reapers and were having SO MUCH FUN OMIGAWD when all of a sudden, the panel was over. I looked around in confusion, thinking "WTF IS HAPPENING" when we were told that we were being booted (after only half an hour
) because the Hetalia World Conference people wanted to start and majority rules or some shit like that.
WE DIDN'T GET THE WHOLE HOUR SLOT BECAUSE OF HETALIA. WTF.
I was so upset. I was raging like ASDHANJFDKGHNRAE FKLJKALHVBKA.,FVBJNSRV and I think I was scaring my friends. And all because of Hetalia.
The fans are ruining the show for me. I hate it when that happens. END RANT
