A couple of weeks ago we went to Sweden for NärCon 2014 as guests of honour, for some reason. Us? Guests of honour? That’s silly! But we’d never turn down an invitation to go to Sweden, because Sweden is awesome and we want to live there forever and ever. So we agreed, and started getting everything ready for the event.
NärCon is a cosplay and anime convention for East Asian pop culture. It was the first cosplay convention I – Simon – have ever been to, and the first time I’ve ever cosplayed, so I figured it’s best to try to not half-ass my costume. I decided to go as Honey Senpai from Ouran Host Club…20 years later. Honey can’t seem to graduate because he’s so bad at math, so he continues to work for the Host Club, even though he’s way past his cuteness prime. Cakey gotdamn cakey!
Martina had her dress custom made by Priscilladawn – a dress shop that she’s been shopping at since 2012 – so she could look like one of the girls that attend the Host Clubs. Honey wasn’t really that good at being a host anymore, though, so he kinda neglects her. She won’t take no for an answer, so she sasaengs all over the place. Yes, we were kinda inspired by Kpop. Ha! Simon’s Ouran Host Club uniform patch was made by anruiukimi and was totally perfect! We also got an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D patch and it was flawless too.
Anyhow, we’ve got a bunch of pics from the event as well, in our pretty galleries that we love putting up whenever we travel. Yay for pictures!
If you went to Narcon and attended our signing event, first of all, thank you for waiting so long in the heat! I’m sorry that it had to be rushed in the end but we went way over the allotted time. If it were up to us we’d stay there with you all day. Secondly, if you want your picture, you can get them here!
Lastly, we’re getting back to doing coffee shop stuff. AYEEE!!! The grand opening is less than three days away! We’re getting everything in order, but we’ve still got videos going up tomorrow and Saturday. Click on the pretty subscribe button below so you don’t miss out!
