C2E2 2014 and my failed ability to tell anyone about it. 
Lost the camera with pictures from day Two and Three, however i managed to swing the pictures from Day one into my stash--which i will say is actually the day i took MOST pictures, so here's the majority anyway!

Zeh Linkku! 
And if you're super curious, the process of me becoming azula kinda in pictures that i took to show my friends:
I don't have the best pictures cause the camera i used was made from bug poo. However the wonderful person i went with, aka :iconsagitary1211: / Sagiterror did get great photos and an awesome video of the Bumblebee cosplay we saw! hopefully she'll get them to me eventually one day.  
Though to talk about what happened:
So before we even got into the event area, two people stopped us to ask for pictures of us.

I probably should have mentioned but hiii--i'm the Azula from C2E2 :'D

Hello there! So did you have the most magical weekend ever? I had an idea after you left - you and your friend should have taken a faux prom picture together with a C2E2 backdrop.
BlipBlipBlue Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

OOOH WE SHOULD HAVE!! That would've been brilliant! Ah well, we can go next year as our prom again!  

Oh, and just curious, but would you like me to scan the picture you did of Azula so you could have a copy? Haha, i don't know if you would have wanted to submit it or not.

I may have taken a picture of it already, but I know where to find it! If you happen to scan it, you can send it my way. If not, I know it's in good hands :)
