I don't have any photographic evidence yet, but the HxH cosplay meeting yesterday was awesome~
I met up with the cool Gon and Killua from Abunai
again, so we had the main 4 all together!! We went to an amusement park in Belgium called Bobbejaanland, and went on all the rides in cosplay. It's so retarded, but so much fun...! Another non-cosplaying friend also went with us to take videos, because the idea was to make a cosplay music video about the characters having fun together. We didn't get to take that much video, because they'd forgotten their camera's memory card... ^^; I lent them mine instead, but since I mostly use my camera for taking small digital photos, I only have a 4GB memory card... So after filming a few scenes, it was already full... And because my memory card was in their camera, I couldn't take any pictures with my camera myself either. So I probably can't do a photo post of this day (I don't think we even took any photos, other then a selfie on my friend's phone ), but I hope the music video will turn out awesome~ I have plenty of photos already of me as Kurapika anyways, so it's no big deal.
The park was doing some kind of Halloween event, so it was opened until 10 at night, and there were lots of people dressed up. So at least it was allowed to cosplay; apparently some Dutch amusement parks recently forbid adults to wear costumes, so we were afraid we might not get in at all. But the staff seemed to have no problems with it. We STILL got some really weird looks though, even from people who were all decked out as bloody zombies themselves. ^^; Even though we looked way more normal than them! And lots of other people smiled and waved at us, but sadly no one recognized our cosplay. u.u (One person yelled "kamehameha", which is close, but not quite... ^^;;)
We had plenty of fun amongst ourselves though, making jokes about the characters and doing silly stuff as them. We drove to the park together in my friend's car, which was already hilarious with all of us in cosplay. Imagine Gon driving, Killua in the front seat and Leorio and Kurapika in the back seat.... All while rocking out to the HxH songs playing on the car stereo. X'D And eating way too much candy, and going on all the rides... I wish more people in Belgium knew HxH, it must've looked so randomly hilarious to suddenly see HxH characters riding a roller coaster together or something... I know I
would totally freak out if I randomly ran into that!
We spent over 10 hours at the park, but I'm too tired right now to completely recall everything we did... And we probably all caught a cold, because even though it was raining and only about 15 degrees out, we went on all the water rides and got ourselves (and each other) totally soaked. >w< Like there was this one ride where you get on a boat equipped with water guns, and get to shoot water at all the other people. Boats are made for 4 people, but because there was no one else on the ride, we each got our own boat and waged a total water gun war on each other! I almost lost my contact lens because Killua hit me right in the eye >w< At night it got even colder than during the day, and because it was rainy, our clothes wouldn't really dry either. So now we're sick... xP So stupid, but totally worth it!
