Hah get it? Because I'm alive and not dead. Oh that was a bad joke wasn't it.
Alright so, I really want to go to Otakon. Which is basically just a convention for cosplayers and lovers of all things geeky...my life.
Also I'm looking for an excuse to break out my old Battle Royale cosplay, and this seems like the perfect opportunity!
But this brings us to point number two; can I go to Otakon? And why can't I win with my mother ever?
I love my mother dearly, and she loves me back, but sometimes we don't see eye to eye.
I went up to her today with my sister to pitch the idea of going to Otakon only to be answered with "NOPE NOPE NOPE LOREN U SUCK." And of course my darling little sister absconded out of there leaving me to be nope'd at. Thanks Tess.
Okay okay, she didn't actually tell me I sucked, but I can pretend because it adds humor to the story.
But then I decided, hey, lets see if we can make this less costly so maybe it'd be more likely to get a yes. So I figured out a way to avoid hotels, but instead of going to my mom with the idea, I made my sister tell her (I didn't want to risk more NOPE's being yelled at me).
Of course she gets a pat on the head and is told that she is smarter than me.
Thanks mom. It was my idea.
When I told her that, I got laughed at. I cannot win with this family.
Damnit this is why we can't have nice things.
Anyway, I'm not really bothered by it, actually I find it pretty funny.
Either way, I still want to go to Otakon. But if I can manage to go, it begs the question; what will I wear?
I have a Battle Royale cosplay down, but theres more than one day! Decisions, decisions.
The world may never know.
