You might remember a few months back that I had won Best Adult Celebrity Costume with my John Lennon (Beatles) outfit at the 1960's themed ComicStock with the prize of two tickets to Florida SuperCon.
Well last Saturday (July 2) was finally it.
Also there will be more pictures after the jump and you can also check them out here at my Album on Facebook too if you like.
I was slightly disappointed with how my costume came out because there was a few things I didn't get to add to it (like the chainsaw prop) but to my surprise it was very well received.
Right after I finished with the registration I entered the dealer's room and as I walk in I have people asking for my picture. Every couple steps I made, I was stopped for a picture.
So I guess girls (and some guys too) really liked the costume and how I looked in it from all the pics they took of me and all the ones that came up and hugged me. Also, I'm thinking my Grell voice added a nice touch since many thought I sounded like him and squealed when they heard me.
I was quite popular with the ladies. : )
|Grell's a chick magnet.|
But I did get myself a little plushie Sebastian from a vendor not too long after I arrived because when I saw it I was so Grell-like that I just had to have it. He too was pretty popular with the ladies. ;)

I also found plenty of Ciels (all of which had no idea where the Sebastians were) and a few Trancys too.
All of them being totally adorable!
Her outfit was quite nice and accurate to the material. Also she had a chainsaw. If only there were enough Sebbys to go around for all us Grells.

|Finally found our destination|
For example: I was in the gaming room sweating my butt off with a Nero cosplayer (who looked pimpin' with purple leather and stuff) while waiting for a Super Smash Bros tournament to start, meanwhile my friend is in the room across from us and she had full blast AC and chairs! So yeah lot of the parts of the con where hot...and not in the sexy way either...though there were plenty of hot cosplayers but I'll talk about them later. ;)
It also seemed a little disorganized and behind schedule since it appeared that they were having some technical difficulties.
Though even with all the waiting and stuff, it wasn't so bad because I ended up meeting some really cool and talented people during that time. I wish I had pictures of all of them but sadly my friend who had the camera wasn't with me the whole time, cus everyone I met had wonderful cosplays.

Grell (Black Butler) and Vash (Trigun)
Anyways, me and him hung out together for a while since we both put our entries in pretty late (we were like the last ones beside Lego man to enter) and we managed to help each other out while were waiting.
I helped him with his armor when it would get out of place and he let me use his face as a mirror so I could do my hair. Hey, Cosplayers gotta stick together ya know.

I entered the contest because my friends wanted me to but I didn't really want to since like I had said earlier, I wasn't confident that my costume would stand a chance against the others considering mine wasn't all the way finished yet.
But I'm still glad I did enter anyway because it was still fun and all even though I didn't win (neither did the other Grell sadly) it was really cool to go up on stage (in front of God knows how many people) and strut my stuff and pose. ^^

Overall I had a good time and I'm hoping to be able to attend next year even with some of the minor (and hot) set backs it had. I'm looking forward to it.
Anyone else attend SuperCon? Did you think it was "super"?
