Desucon Frostbite R-18

Desucon Frostbite 2014 was the first R-18 convention in Finland. We had lots of fun and some things were better than usual: no high-pitched screaming of teenagers, more space to move around and no garbage on the floor and under stairways. Other than that the event was pretty much the same as earlier conventions, with the expectation that there was more boobs on display at the vendors' room. I think they were supposed to check every participants ID so they are over 18 years old, but for some reason they didn't check mine even though I was the youngest in our group. :'D Maybe the security officer thought he checked mine already because we looked alike with Minorea in our kigurumis.

A bunny airplane! ..almost. Atleast we had fun! (Minorea in pink wig and me in yellow.) Picture (c) Kyuu Eturaitti.
I think we are the laziest kind of con visitors out there. We usually have no idea what kind of programmes there are until we reach the convention, and this happened this time too... But we checked the schedule for the weekend when we got to Frostbite on Friday evening. This time either we didn't find that many programmes we wanted to see expect for cosplay contests. I have to admit I actually missed some interesting programmes because I didn't check them beforehand.. Maybe I'll learn to prepare better in the future? (I guess I have because I've already checked NFC programme and registered for some of them!)

Even Gaikotsu got wild with her poses because it was R-18 convention.
On Saturday we went to watch the cosplay contests and cheer on Päivi from UruharaFC. Having seen their shows before I was thrilled to see what she had come up with this time - and it was amazing! No surprise she won and she'll participate in Nordic Cosplay Championships in Sweden this summer. Congrats and good luck! ^w^
Unfortunately our furry meet was at the same time with the cosplay contests so I couldn't take part in it. I still met some furries, old and new asquaintances. And I also found a new furry friend at the convention's "friend hunt". Hehe, it was a fun way to meet Jummi!

We also tried a Maid Cafe at a convention for the first time with Minorea. We've been to a real maid cafe in Japan and I was glad to notice that this maid cafe was a lot like it! We shared a delicious strawberry cake which got even more delicious because we did a 'food spell' with our extremely cute and lovely maid. Thanks Alice!

"Taste - taste - better! <3"
This convention was weird for me in the sense that I had different costume for every day! On Friday we wore our lovely kigurumis with Minorea, on Saturday I wore my fursuit and on Sunday I cosplayed Soifon. I cursed both my fursuit and Soifon so much that I don't know if I want to wear them anymore.. Atleast I want to revamp Gaikotsu's head, paws and tail. But I'm pretty sure I won't have time for that before NFC so I have no choice but to wear that ugly thing.. ;__;

With and without the coat.
Hahah everything on my backside was so messed up but this picture will do... :'D
I cursed this cosplay whole Sunday because it was so ugly and stupid and badly made, but... This picture made me love this cosplay 10,000 times more! Thanks to Minorea for photographing~
I also bought a lot of stuff. Well atleast it was a lot of stuff for me because usually I buy only food during conventions. But this time.. I just found wonderful things. A black&red Hell Bunny dress with cute little bats  from Wannabe (you can see it in the Maid Cafe picture), a black&red collar from Kuroineko Clothing, and.. I bought two ribbons from Von Aidainder, they are lovely! I just  had to wear the black&red one for school the next day and I think it's my favourite accessory already... The brown one goes well with my steampunk related outfit. ^w^
(Yes I like combination of black & red, that's why Gaikotsu is black, red and white too. ;D)

Two ribbons from Von Aidainder and collar from Kuroineko.
All in all an R-18 convention was a good experience and lots of fun! I hope this format will continue in future Frostbites too. I think I didn't enjoy the con to the fullest thought because I'm SUPER excited for Nordic Fuzz Con! It's less than 2 weeks away! I can't think about anything but going there and meeting my dear Swedish cat Linnea <3

(Oh and I got a huge inspiration to make more cosplay costumes... Be prepared, for I'm going to finish Ponyta by LEVELS 2014!!)
