In the previous thread we discussed cosplayers doing porn, CMV’s, and then of course there was Animecon. Lots of preparing, post-con discussion and the /CGL/ meet which wasn't anything like I had imagined it. Make sure to give it a read if you enjoy behind the scenes stories.
So how did everyone enjoy Animecon? Any fun stories, pictures, behind the scenes information or drama you want to share?
Convention news and agenda up to August:
>Tomoplay (July 2nd & 3rd, Berghem) is a retro, card and board games related meetup. Tickets are €2,50 (€5,00 incl. bus).

My dad's fiancé unknowingly cut up my jsk

Due to some unusual circumstances, I'm currently living in a partially-renovated house with my dad and his fiancé.
His fiancé is a very sweet lady who is very thrifty. She makes all her own clothes and and will usually find a practical use for something, rather than throw it out (i.e recycling old bottles and jars to pot plants).
I had a Baby The Stars Shine Bright Strawberry and Cherry Ruffle jumperskirt that I didn't wear anymore, so I was planning to sell it. From memory, it cost about $400.
I put it out in the main room next to a pile of clothes I planned to donate to Good Sammies, so I'd remember to take photos of it for the sale. I then went away for a week to visit my grandparents
When I came back, I noticed the pile of clothes had disappeared. Cool, my dad and/or his fiancé had donated them for me. But wait... Where was the jumperskirt?
It was then that I saw the sight portrayed in the uploaded. My dress had been cut up to to make an ironing board cover and a tablecloth. I don't know where the rest of the material is.
It appeared that my dad's fiancé had assumed the jumperskirt was part of the donation pile, and thought there was no harm in 'recycling' it for her own uses. In her efforts to pretty up the concrete-y wasteland of a house, she had unknowingly destroyed an expensive brand dress.
Literally the only thing I could do in that moment was stare blankly. I can't even be mad at her, she had no idea.
So now I have a BTSSB ironing board and table cloth.
