Super delayed DA post!! It's been a while! Hopefully I can post more life/ what I've been up to updates soon!!
But first, today is a post about our recent trip up to the Gold Coast!
Wednesday 26th March we head off from home in the Wookie mobile! Stopped by Sydney to pick up BC and Spence and then headed north up the coast in the endless rain. (ended up with a windscreen wiper fail and took of the broken wiper)
Stopped at a neat little camp ground somewhere North of Newcastle, but south of Port Macquarie. Luckily it had sort of stopped raining where we got there to set up camp!
Spotted what we thought at first was rat, but on closer inspection was a Bandicoot! Come to eat up Spence's nasty Mac n Cheese. I think this guy was used to people, didn't seem too phased with photos or us being near it
Thursday 27th Got up to make the rest of the long epic journey north to the Goldcoast. Stopped in Port Macquarie for brekky, fuel and a new wiper blade so we could have both wipers on again! Stopped again up in Coffs Harbour to visit the Big Banana again
Upon arriving into QLD I was sooo happy to find out that they were an hour behind NSW, so instead of being sort of late to the hotel, we were early! and had time to settle in and get ready to go to Dracula's Cabaret!! (which ended up just being myself and Q)
Dracula's had to be one of the most amazing things I've done in a long time! The people were characters and they played them so well! The inside and bar was fantastic with super awesome cocktails! The lame train ride to the stage and dinner area was hilarious! (NOT scary at all, just the cheesy horror ride!) haha The show they put on was SOOO GOOD, I really recommend this to everyone!! It was just WOW. Also the food was quite delicious and presented very well! It was certainly worth it, I had such a great time! We even got some (actual) blood bags with cocktails inside and jelly shot syringes XD
That night was pouring very heavily with rain and was very windy, I wasn't expecting much for the day after. But to my surprise the next day showed patches of blue sky and actual sunshine! YEY!
Friday 28th we had a great brekky and then went for a trip to find jaycar and kmart before heading back to get into costume preparing for registration to FurDu!
The plan was to 'sort of' re enact the scene from the Fifth Element to board into Fhloston Paradise! MULTI PASS!! It was awesome to see everyone loving our costume I worked so hard on X"D I really appreciated all the comments from everyone!! We had fun!!
Hung out with loooots of awesome people and tried the fursuit video dance thing...I couldn't get very well takes me ages to learn choreography X"D later had dinner noms with some awesome peeps and then went to watch Fox Amoore's charity show! Then we stayed to watch the game night stuff after that
Saturday 29th we got up early to try and find a brew shop for Q to get a tap for his keg we mysteriously couldn't find (at the time) we ended up finding a pretty cool brew shop, but with a guy who talked endlessly and made us late back to the hotel...
Got dressed up and headed down with my gear to set up my table! (late) But that took a while with again more amazing comments and photos with people Also had a professional photoshoot done by Atpaw! WHICH WAS AMAZING!
Left Crazy to man the table for me while I did the Iron Artist!! There was 3 'artists' and 3 'challengers' who had to decorate a victims mask and shirt...it was fun but hard at the same time with only ONE bottle of glue between us! haha! it was great fun! Twig was particularly hilarious!
I went back to my table while crazy went to the Motofurs panel and then I packed up to go into the cosplay contest with crazy...and...it was us, Ray and Juz! No audience showed up, so that was a bit disappointing, I was really looking forward to it! But we all got a 'champion' ribbon and Crazy got the mini Trophy X"D
Later on we got a group together to go have some 'Old Timey' photos done, we had Victorian theme and half the group got Gangster (because the Victorian stage was too small...) But it was fun!!
Rocked to some epic TRAP at the dance night thing for a bit
Sunday 30th went to have another epic brekky of pancakes XD and set up (late again had to dress up in our new costumes this time!) my table! Was good, I did well and met lots of awesome peeps and had lots of photos! Met a dog I think was called "Mr Clooney" (?) from the Big Brother house, he was pretty cool
This day was a bit wet and rainy so the beach walk for fursuits was held instead inside the foyer of the hotel, and in the "abandoned apocalypse mall" with no shops
Dinner early and then preped with Carni to go be Auction item presenters!
Thennnn dead dog dance! yey!
Monday 31st OMG WE WENT TO DREAM WORLD!! Dream world was fantastic!! So much fun, but there's so much there we didn't really get to do EVERYTHING but we went on everything that was awesomely worth it!!
So much awesome!!
Afterwards back to the hotel and went to Dracula's Haunted Mansion That was fun, been before, but was good to see a few new things. It's such awesome cheesy 'horror' that is in no way scary...it's hilarious that it does actually scare some people! haha!
Then we packed up the car and headed off to Oz's place to crash the night!! Super mega thankyous to Oz for putting us up and his parents aswell!!
Tuesday 1st Nice sleep in and chill out day! Went to the land of IKEA for the first time ever and it was amazballs..oh god! I think we were there for like 3 hrs or something! Pretty much decided I want my house to be made of Ikea stuff hahah! SO nice!
After that was the Brisbane meet in the park...a park that was all lit up in the ground and trees and walls and amazing playground area! Such a cool place, had snags and Cold rock icecream Good fun!
Wednesday 2nd Packed up and headed off to Coolongatta to go for a swim at the beach! Was pretty awesome, and was nice...(after you get in ) haha Then we had to dry off and start the epic drive home!
On the way we stopped off at the Macadamia Castle....reaaally expensive macadamias though, so just looked and got a mini mag of choc coated macadamias
Then epic long journey home, but got home safe and sound. Another awesome Gold Coast holiday, love going! Special thankyous to all involved with Furdu and all you awesome peeps we got to hang with and such! Had an amazing time guys!!
Thats it!! X'3
