The party started at 12 but I got to the scene around 3 in the afternoon because I had to accomplish tasks and responsibilities necessary for my pocket’s survival. I got a pizza from Greenwich for the event since it was announced to be in potluck. The first people I saw were members of Mushin, namely Jimmy and Pao. I could clearly see that they were already having fun. I registered, got in and I surprisingly got a very warm welcome from everybody. Gene and Kel, who were the hosts, introduced me to everybody as Master Asia, a character I’ve cosplayed a few months back. People were cheering, so I was totally caught off-guard and left me very happy and at the same time embarrassed. I never thought they would remember that cosplay of mine. *wipes sweat*
After the warm welcome, I was immediately directed by one of the committee members to my group, a group that I had no idea that I was a part of, that left me with a large lump in my throat. I didn’t have any plans on joining any games or performances and whatnots. But we had an impromptu cheering. (A plethora of congratulations to the yellow team, by the way), then had the jeopardy-esque game with really difficult questions, (at least difficult for mois), and an amazing-race of some sort for the final game. The scores were tallied and our team won first place! Yay! The last game was tough, but we were able to work as a unit and did what the others weren’t able to, which was to decipher the hidden message! *throws bonnet into air*
We then had raffles where I won a gashapon that contained this blue little character. (I still don’t know the name but it looks funny so I like it =)) Had a group picture, and fixed the venue. Good fun, good fun~ I really good change of pace for me. Oh yeah, by the time we finished cleaning, a very late big man arrived! I even saw my kid! XDD
I got to know a lot of new people, and had a great time with the people I know. I’d say this event was a huge success, and I’m thankful for the organizers who made this event come into fruitition. *tips hat to each one* I do so look forward to next year’s! ^_^
