Kumoricon at its 3rd time in Vancouver, Washington went pretty well. It's going to be there next year as well. I have to say The Hilton & The Red Lion Hotels handle Kumoricon best compared to the other venues. The staff is certainly more friendly.
I would have enjoyed this year more, had I not been in pain during the rave Saturday night 9/1/12.

I had to sit down on the floor in the back of the ball-room and just watch. Eventually my cousin and I just left and went back to the hotel room to shower and chill until bedtime. I was also running on about 11 hours of sleep and I don't mean from one night. Thursday night I only slept about 6 hours and got up at 5:30am that Friday, 8/31/12 to get ready. When doing my make-up for The Count, I prefer to take my time in case I have any setbacks. We arrived at The Red Lion at about close to 1pm. Luckily there was no line at the Pre-Registration Check-In. That was the first I'd seen that. Usually there's a long line. I had decided to bring my platform boots that I had gotten and couldn't walk in them for too long because of the snug-fit around the foot which was scraping skin off the top of the foot and those areas are still healing. I loved the boots because of the fact they made me about 5 feet 11 inches in height. I'm going to have to find something to pad the top of my feet better than what I used.

As usual, a lot of walking. I took about $900 in cash, spending nearly $200 at Payless Shoes for different pair of boots I could wear and bought 3 new white dress shirts at Target with the stiff collars for The Count outfit.

To sum it up, I had a great time, despite the pain, blisters and lack of sleep, which is what I've grown accustomed to during Kumoricon, which is why when I get home I go to bed. And it usually takes me a full week to recoop from Kumoricon. I only sleep about 5-6 hours a night during Kumoricon and thus, I'm ragged and ready to go home on day 3.

Now I am preparing a brand new staff for The Count outfit. This one is actually a flag pole made of wood, which I got at a craft store. The ball on it is the perfect shape. I even found a crown to put on the top of it. I will post pictures when it's complete.
