Yesterday was the Victory Banquet~! God that is one lame title. It was another all-nighter with Bishop's costume and my buttons. I used a barbaric amount of thread on my Varia coat, it was hard to remove =_= Then I polished them =D
Oh yeah, and chicken roasting as well. I decided to cook 2 because I don't want to think of how to split a small chicken into 7.
Met up with Pawn and we waited for King. Then to Somerset where Knight was waiting. Changed into costume/half-costume at 313, and we were totally not on schedule~
Yosha~ Got a use for Takiko wig~
Behold my uneven eyes -gouge-
Took a bus to Botanical Garden and OH LORD THE SPAMMAGE OF PEOPLE.
I knew we should have gotten there earlier... Band Stand was taken by SCREAMING Philipinos. But we were supposed to picnic on the grass anyway, so they just made up the background noise.
Set up~ Then NOMS~~ Was damn hungry already~
And as expected, it started raining while we were halfway eating. And no, I do not regret not moving into the shelter when the first signs of rain appeared. I do not take pleasure even for one second being there with the annoying presence. So, Knight and I, as sworn protectors of the Kingdom, went out into the rain in search of new territory. But alas it rained to hard we had to run back.
IMMA SOGGY DOG~
While coming up the stairs into the bandstand, I witnessed the most dramatic and distinct dimension splits ever, between the congregating singing dancing howling maids and US, who were silent and mournful-looking in our glorious blackity. It was amazing. I wish I could have snapped a pic.
Anyway, we had the cake~
Huaaaa~ So Pretty~~
Then Queen got into her Skirt and we went shooting. While we were at the cactus garden thingy, there was this photographer who started shooting us. haaahahha. Yay~ *waits for pics*
