    Probably the weirdest thing to happen this weekend was seeing a friend I haven't seen for years helping run my favourite stall at the con (the one with hats, and lots of pony + pokemon plushies). It was random and bizarre :p

    Missed out on the weekend ticket this time round, so I didn't go friday. Luckily arrived early enough on saturday and sunday to avoid painfully long queues, despite also missing out on the saturday priority ticket and having to get one on the day (conveniently, the general entry was an hour later than I thought it was, so I ended up accidentally being there 2 and a half hours in advance).

    Anyways yeah, con was fun. And tiring. I sort of popped along to, uh... "look" at the meetup on saturday :p I needed to take a break (one of many throughout the day) to eat lunch anyway, so I thought I'd just check it out. Spent most money on saturday, sunday was more chill and just strolling around, though I did make one significant purchase on that day. I also took time to wait for a chance to play a 4 player Mario Kart 8 grand prix (which I won :D) on the big screen at the Nintendo hub, that was a lot of fun! During one of my breaks on sunday a random guy wanted a pokemon battle with me, which I also won by a smidgeon :p

    So yeah, that's about all I have to say about the con itself I think. Now for the loot.

    On saturday:

    And my big sunday purchase is something I've wanted for a while :3

    Hi everyone just to let you all know i have gotten to the point, where I am now editing the photographers from the Brony meet.
    I have only just gotten to them, because there was a hell of a lot of photographs in front of the brony meet.
    They can be found here https://www.facebook.com/SLBAbstract
    Note I am still editing through them and there are quite a few to be added

    If you're going to BUCK I know Eden will be selling plushies there - perhaps you won't need to wait till October?

    Well I had a great time at the meet, I was the tall guy in the hat and Star Trek t-shirt slowly cooking to death, you would think that i would know by now that thick hats and cons do not go well together.

    I'll admit I'm not the most social but I did manage to chat to a few people, thanks for making me feel welcome.

    As for the queue fiasco is it bad of me to say I didn't have any trouble with it mostly due to a mistake on my part (there were only signs directing you down the weekend ticket queue from the car parking underneath), although I will admit it seemed to be more convoluted than last time. one of these cons they might get it right?

    My MCM weekend was brilliant :D Unfortunately I missed the meet because the RWBY meet was at the same time and I had to try and keep a lid on the 'Mark Nut' shouting. But, got lots of shiny new figures, anime and lots of pony pictures taken. So all in all, a brilliant weekend :)

    MCM was mostly good as always, traveling back always feels like traveling to the stoneage though. XD (Devon. See @BLame 's post for an apt description of the place).

    Only ponyish swag was one of Eden's bats in a fluttershy like colour scheme, and it's to be a gift for my sister who couldn't make it last minute.
    The eveelotion plushies however, have doubled. ^-^'

    Oddly enough, I heard @I'dLikeToBeATree 's exact story being given to a mcm servy person while eating my lunch on Sunday. Either it hit a lot of people, or I was literally like 2 ft away and hadn't noticed ^-^''''.
