After getting nearly zero hours' worth of sleep the previous night, the two of us and Meeko woke up at 7am to get ready, so we can arrive at the convention at 9am. Being us though, we still managed to be late by 15 mins. However when we hurriedly rushed up Anzac Parade and towards the Roundhouse, we saw that the line for the entry was already building up, despite doors opening at 9:45am. Crazy! We felt a little dorky in our Death Note cosplay costumes, walking past them with a suitcase, a board display and a huge Myer bag (containing display stands).
At our table, we quickly set up, and was lucky to have the super nice and super cool Kurimja as our neighbour ^_^
Our stall! Your Harmony and Silver are being all IC.
Hand-made One Piece plushie badges ^.^
While we were setting up (as well as shortly afterwards), we were also visited by ceestar, theprerogative, glorfindel, ravient, souseki_naora, tsubakichan, cattypatra and sunset_swish (and we also met nerdygridbug later on in the day! ♥). Although all of us didn't get to chat much (I guess we were all busy with our respective jobs at the con), it was awesome to meet and talk to you guys.
Pretty soon, doors opened and people started filing in. And boy, did the venue get crowded! There were some really cool cosplays, and this time it was handy as the cosplayers came to us instead of needing to walk around and chase them down for pictures.

As the day wore on, we managed to slip away from our table a few times to check out other stores and such, and make a few purchases of our own :D Eventually, as the cosplay comp finished and the crowds died down a bit, we decided to take a few random pictures of ourselves. Beware of dorkiness 8D

Stuff that Silver bought on the day =D Harmony the cheap-ass didn't buy anything.
So after the cosplay results were announced, we decided to start packing up.
Thanks to everyone who came and visited the stall, and said hello, asked us for a picture, posed for a picture, grabbed a business card, snagged a free candy, and bought some of our stuff! You guys are totally awesome ^_^
Also, thank you so much to theprerogative and ceestar and the girls who randomly came by our stall to give us free DN bookmarks for your wonderful gifts ^_^ We love them all so much!
The lovely gifts! ... But only Silver's share, coz Harmony didn't take a photo of hers. XO
All in all, it was a really fun day, and although we're all tired from the ordeal, we can't wait till next year :D
