So I wanted to recreate the scene of Xion in Days on the bridge at Beast’s Castle.  Mastahofdarkness was kind enough to take something like 4 or 5 shots of me to get a good one when it was dark and my camera was saying “Lol whut?”  I had already taken a shot with the camera, and I combined the empty shot with the one he took and photoshopped them together.  I also played with Levels a lot, since the picture would have been just gold instead.  I like how it came out.  It just needs a Riku.  XD  The rain made the ground shine.  While not accurate to the scene, it looks prettier this way.
I showed a few other attendees the picture he’d taken for me.  I was informed in various ways it was Not Okay.  XD  Feels mission accomplished 100%?

The best picture of Mastahofdarkness as Xemnas.
He had the idea of posing in Gaston’s chair.  He said it would be awesome.  He was very right.

Xion vs Xemnas!  14 vs 1!  Puppet vs Superior!
This was my and Mastahofdarkness's “best action pose” for the scavenger hunt!

So there I was, dressed as Xion and riding the Peoplemover with Axel, Roxas and Demyx.  While it sounds like the introduction to a great joke, it was one of many great things that happened that day.  As the only Xion dressed in the coat, I was taken under their wing a few times, and this was one.  For all the times I was ignored as a Xion walking the convention halls, or worse, having con-goers tell me what a horrible character she is to my face, I finally felt so accepted.  It may not have been a clock tower, but it might as well have been.  It was wonderful.  That’s one things I’ve loved about the event both years.  At conventions people judge each other so much more, but here people are just happy to hang with others who love Kingdom Hearts.  We were a crazy bunch of KH nerds thrilled to see each other.

We swarmed the ferry boat.  ”This boat runs on happy faces!!!”

More than once, I caught a glimpse of GangstaNort donning some sort of awesome eyewear.

Xehanort also took over reading the questions.  Here, he was threatening to fire Xigbar over something.  XD

Here, Riku watches as Roxas tries to take on Xemnas with his Umbrella.

Apparently Terra and Namine were involved.  I am not sorry for any cavities this picture may or may not induce.  It was just so sweet!!!

I wanted to take a picture of Axel sitting like he does in KH3D, and it got hardcore photo-bombed.  Best yet, the photo-bombers, Roxas and Demyx, were photo-bombed by Luxord.   And there’s Sora, just enjoying the show back there.

Christmas Town Destiny Island trio!  I loved how Kairi was a doll.  Last year Sora and Riku were their Grid versions (and as they tell me, those were not comfy outfits last year!)  The Castle was very conveniently colored!

The Riku in the suit is Cutsceneaddict, who ran the event last year.  For various reasons they had to step down for this year, but I was very happy to see Riku back this year.

Also it was awesome not being the only Xion.  Xion love represent!

Double the Riku, double the fun.

THIS IS THE CUTEST NAMINE I HAVE EVER SEEN I CANNOT BE CONVINCED OTHERWISE

This Kairi MADE her own Keyblade, mad props to her!

Master Xehanort.  You cannot imagine the fangirlish screams that resonated throughout the Transportation and Ticket Center at his approach.  He is the only MX I’ve ever seen in person and I am still recovering from the amount of darkness awesomeness this man possessed for choosing this cosplay.

The Roxas up top I’m pretty sure was the head of MKH this year, and was a lot of fun to hang with.  Roxas, Axel and Demyx ended up sort of forming a trio, but more on that awesome Peoplemover ride later.  :)  

I particularly loved how this Aqua picture came out, and I was stoked there was a Shiki and a Lea and a Halloween Town Kairi!  

This is one of my best friends, Mastahofdarkness, who I went with for Magic Kingdom Hearts and Re: Magic Kingdom Hearts.  As you can see, he is a great guy to be a colossal dork with.  XD  

The one with Tink was part of the scavenger hunt.  We also both had fun playing in the fog at the Haunted Mansion.  I’d done a firework photo with him last year, but my new camera was so much better for it.  Don’t mess with Xemnas, he’ll blow you up.

I’m saving my favorite pic of him for later.  He had a great photo idea.

The start of several Magic Kingdom Hearts posts, now that I finally have them photoshop-cropped and such.  (And after finding out some of them aren’t nearly as clear as I thought.)

As you can expect, a TON of cosplayers came out, but not everyone did.  I can’t begin to tell you how cute those Secret Place shirts are!

Both Xigbar and Saix had the best scars I’d ever seen.  Xigbar’s was so deep I hesitated to ask, wondering if it was real, despite knowing that wasn’t true for this cosplayer last year.  Sora was kind enough to pose for us for the scavenger hunt (CUTE).
