- Friends. As I said, it was my old and new friends that made it worth going. A “shout-out” and thank you to Johanna, Filip, Hanna, Sofie and the cute Sailor Moon cosplayer.
- Cosplay. I cosplayed Sailor Jupiter, both in and outside the cosplay competition. Since DinoCon didn’t have a cosplay competition, the guest convention KawaiiCon held one instead. My cosplay was very popular, and it had a better fit now than it had at YoiCon. It was so popular that I came in shared second place in “Audience Choice”, together with my new friend Sofie (Kirin Armor from Monster Hunter). A second cosplay-highlight was that I found a very cute Sailor Moon cosplayer. We posed together and gathered quite few photographers, and outside the cosplay, I talked some with her and her older sisters(?).
- Profiles. This is somewhat of a ego trip for myself. There was some “profiles”/”celebrities”/”everyone knows who they are” at DinoCon, like Shookie Monster. I talked some with the main organizer Rachi, and she put me in the same category when she said something like “/…/we have both you and Shookie Monster”. That was a great ego boost.
- The Doppelganger. For some conventions now, people have mistaken me for someone else, and they claim to have seen me at conventions I haven’t visited. At DinoCon, I finally met my doppelganger. At a distance, and if you don’t know there is two of us, then I can understand why people mistakes us.
Over all, DinoCon:01 was a quite eventless convention. I have realized that I’m not a small-convention-person; I prefer larger conventions, like UppCon and NärCon.
