Happy Thanksgiving! I wanted to say what I'm thankful for, but I also still have a lot of feelings about Fanfest... So it will kind of cover a little bit of both.
It's been a hard year for myself, and some of my friends, so managing to snag tickets for our entire group was amazing. Meeting up with some of my most beloved FC mates, who have been nothing but kind, funny and helpful the entire time I've played FFXIV was one of the best experiences I could have asked for. @tinycookbigworld
is just as sweet and funny IRL as she is in game! From running around in costumes, food adventures and just hanging out as we tried not to fall asleep - everything this last week was better thanks to the group I was spending it with. Getting to actually play challenges with a full group of 8 friends in person was amazing, and we just all work together so well!! Screaming like idiots while running from monsters in Eureka, and beating Yojimbo at the very last second as things started to close would not have been the same without this group of people. ❤️ @starlit.rose
in particular is one of the biggest rocks in my life and she worked her butt off to get her costume done so we could debut our twins together. She kept me motivated through her hard work, kept me sane when I would start to break down, and running around as twins with her AT FanFest was a dream come true (more on cos stuff later). And @kevlarcosplay
who made sure I actually ate food during my con crunch and took care of all of our adult responsibilities so I could do nothing but work on cosplay once I was home for the past few months.
So if you made it this far, I'm thankful for my friends, all of my friends. Old, new, online, FC - all of you. Thank you for sticking with me, adding excitement, humor and support to my life, and for just being you and enriching my life by being present.
