Just a little break from the ship meme to update my flist about the Romics. For those who don't know what I'm talking about (and that's because you've skipped my previous 3-4 entries where I mentioned it!) it's like a sort of Comic Con in Rome. But with more comics (especially manga), cartoons and videogames and less tv shows D:
This morning I woke up at 8.30 (which is kind of a new thing for me, you know, it's Saturday, FFS!) and went straight away to Muriel's place. The hair thing was not very succesfull, I looked like an idiot, but at least I parted my hair on the side. We took a train to go there, and it took almost 1 hour D: I didn't have a ticket, because it was like a ghost train station (it wasn't the central one. We were at the Nomentana one), so there weren't ticket machines nor thingies to obliterate. Lucky me, there weren't inspectors.
Anyway, on the train a huge nerd boy sit behind Muriel's seat, and it was dressed as Peg Leg Pete, and he addressed me saying "Oh, the Doctor!" I've been very happy that someone had recognized me so soon. We chatted a little about the fact probably no one else would have known me because the show is not famous in Italy. We arrived there, and there was a huge queue! We spotted a shorter queue for cosplayers, and we slipped there. There was a couple in front of us, and I had seen the boy in the face and he was very pale. I whispered to Muriel something "Oh god, tell me they're not Edward and Bella!". Then when it was their turn to identify themselves the girl jumped on the back of the boy 8(like the wood scene) and took an apple from her backpack! LMAO they actually were Edward and Bella! I laughed my ass off, because they weren't those kind of obsessed Twilight-fan people, they didn't take themselves seriously. When they passed with the reduced ticket, "Bella" also ate her apple! I wanted a picture with them, but I was too shy to ask them. When it was our turn, the guy asked us, without looking who we were, and I replied "I'm the Doctor. From Doctor Who!" and, while saying that, I whirred my sonic screwdriver. He then looked up and said "I bloody love you", he came out from his desk to hug me. LMAO!
We hanged out there for a couple of hours, we saw Disney princesses but not as awesome as those ones in San Diego. There was a cute Belle and I wanted a picture, but she disappeared while I was finishing my pizza. There were people cosplaying Pokemon who actually engaged Pokemon battles with their puppets (!), a lot of Jedis and Padawans, we met again with Pete, who asked me 'how are the Daleks?', a lot of Sailor Senshi, etc. There was also Mary Oyaya, meeting the fans. I've never watched the Clone Wars, but she's part of the Star Wars verse, so she gained a picture I took from far. The only sci-fi things were Star Wars related, so I clinged at them for a while, cause it was one of the few things I knew more in there. They selled also lightsabers, but the cheapest costed 150 € D: We'll go back tomorrow to see if there's something new and other funny cosplayers to spot :D( Collapse )
