|DA did something weird to my gallery, so just hit ALL to see everything. My newest stuff doesn't just pop up in FEATURED anymore|
OK SO HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED THROUGHOUT THE DAY
We left the house at like 8 a.m. (btw we are staying in my uncle’s house, luckily he lives here in Washington), piddled around a bit, and arrived at the hotel arounnnnnd 10 maybe. Man you could definitely tell who all was in the lobby waiting for the band. Steampunk princesses all around <33
We were then in line for the human photoshoot and I met this cool cat named Sarah, too bad I didn’t get a number or something, her fanbot was presh ♥（ﾉ´∀`） Alrighty so it’s my turn for the pic, I could not even look any of them in the face, got the photo, and went on my merry way. Sobs oh well-
While waiting in line for the Walter Girls photo-op, I actually saw Rileystanding off to the side. I got super excited to see her and I was gonna play it off like I had to go to the restroom, forcing myself to walk by her. Ok so I was getting my hello ready anD NOPE I CHICKENED OUT AND DID NOT SAY A DANG OL’ THING and just continued on to the bathroom like a wimp. Hhhhey atleast she recognized me as I was walking back to my spot in line :,> I can’t really remember what came in what order, I think I got to talk to Michael a little /before/ the second photoshoot. Wow he was so nice, and so tall ahhh /o'’ Also caught a glimpse of Lil’ Steve poking his head out the doors, it was way too cute. And idk what happened, I was more awkward when taking the pic with Carolina and Paige than with the guys OTL;; Now that I think about it, I probably looked like I hated everyone because I would not look at ANYONE straight on, I gotta get better at looking people in the eye, I just get so scared. It’s like when you stare at a cat and it makes it uncomfortable. oH OH ANd aaaand I got a separate photo with Steve, he picked me up annnnd ah I do not normally let people pick me up, but I made an exception (*/ω＼*)
I can’t remember at what points I took separate pics with Michael and Matt, the day was a little bit of a blur because I was so stressed (ﾉﾟ0ﾟ)ﾉ
Man alive, the line for the robots photo-op was enormous. I was lucky to have ended up starting in the middle of the line (I think). Gosh this was probably the most nerve-wracking one. I wanted to do a specific pose with them but I just could not get myself to ask them if we could do it. But what probably made me relax a little more was them asking me where I was from, wishing me an early birthday, and The Spine asking me if my state had peaches dsghkslg (｡´∀｀)ﾉ
NOW FOR THE AUTOGRAPH SESSIONS. We stood in line 5ever, I just sorta sat, drew Riles and Pest, played Pokemon, snacked a little, anything to pass the time. Besides talk to people. Man I was so ready to ask for peoples’ tumblrs but, again, lost the courage (;*´Д`)ﾉ Well I had those little pics I drew up for them printed out (had to reprint them in different places in hopes the colors will correct themselves) and ready to hand out. Now, I don’t know why they did this, but my parents took some of the older copies of the same images for them to sign while I was giving them the same images. It wAS SO STUPID BUT I CAN’T GO BACK NOW.
I was a tad upset that the Walter Girls weren’t allowed to sign anything. But they ended up kissing the prints for me Q<Q and they liked the ones I printed for them eeee I’m so happy <3 Matt got his, then Hatchworth (and I can never get the color of his exterior right, or the design on his face but hey he seemed to like it), then Michael, and when I gave mine to Rabbit I just sorta looked at her face, hair, and outfit, then I looked at the one I drew, and got the huge wave of discouragement mmmman I was more inaccurate with her’s than Hatchworth’s :,V bUT it made me feel better when she asked /me/ to sign my print to her, it was so nice ;v; Steve then got his, and I was actually shocked when he said he had seen them on tumblr woa h. And last the Spine got his, tbh I was not pleased with how my print of him came out. Like the colors were just fine (he’s mainly grey-scale anyways pfff), his face just didn’t come out as planned. Something about how I drew it looked really off, I’m just praying he liked it agshajfkll;gf. But then I got to shake his hand and that also encouraged me a little /o/
After the session we visited the AFK Tavern, that place was hella cool, but I got too self conscious and didn’t play any of the games |_・)
BUT YO MAN THE SHOW. THE SHOW WAS SO RAD (◕‿◕✿) I was happy to have gotten a front row seat on the balcony. Gosh like all concerts it was rlly loud and I can’t normally handle anything too loud, but I wanted to watch them perform sssso bad. I can’t even choose which song I liked the best, or which skit. All I know is that it was amazing and I would love to see them again as soon as possible yEAH
We went back to the Tavern afterwards, tried that blue matter cheesecake, and it was pretty good even though I don’t even eat cheesecake huehue. We stayed in there for well over an hour, waiting for atleast one of the band members to come in. Waiting, waiting waiting, then I left to use the restroom, and within the ONE MINUTE I WAS GONE Steve had come in omf g. I had finally worked up the courage to say hi again, but the thing is, he was chit chatting with a fellow fan and I didn’t want to cut into their little convo. So I just sorta wrote a little letter in my sketchbook, tore it out, and gave it to Steve in place of actually butting in. Yee atleast I got one more hug before heading back to my uncle’s house.
MY ONE REGRET was not hugging the bots. I have always wanted to just, see what it felt like to hug atleast one of the bots but yeah, I was just so overwhelmed by everything, I couldn’t do it (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ I was too overwhelmed to even try talking to them for a few moments like I could with Michael. Man it’s upsetting since it will be a looong long time before I get to see them again in person, but atleast I actually got to meet them, get compliments on my drawings, and shake the Spine’s hand. The humans were so fun, and the Walter Girls were just adorable.
I don't care if you don't like them and are tired of hearing me talk about them, I had frickin fun
