Kitacon 6 Summary

Hello all!

With Kitacon 6 behind us, it's now time for a con summary. As said in the cosplay plans post Kitacon was held in Kemi, Finland the 1st-2nd March. The day before the con I slept at mom's place together with my company and the next morning mom drove us to Kemi.


The con opened its doors 10.00 local time but the programs started first at 11.00 I think. Our cosplay trio arrived later at the con as Shiro Samurai was raging with his Keisuke Sannan (Hakuōki: Shinsengumi Kitan) make-up that didn't want to cooperate. Once at the con we decided to do our normal "con tour" and walk around the building, see what there is to see and notice that both Dealer's Hall and Artist's Alley shared the same area. We kept checking what there was for sale and later we ran into Sacchan and Karri. I was surprised to see Karri at Kitacon as I had no clue that he was coming. At one point during the day there was this one person who recognized me as Pre-Game!Kratos Aurion (Tales of Symphonia) and we ended up chatting about the game and later discovered that we both had plushies from it! Now to the thing, Tales of Symphonia is one of the many Tales of titles out there that doesn't have any official plushies released -yet- so to get a plushie you have to commission it from someone who makes them. Yeah, I was totally in for a surprise knowing that I wasn't the only one having Tales of Symphonia plushies in northern Finland. While we were talking I completely forgot asking for their contact information as I somehow took for granted that Sacchan knew this person, which she didn't. I had my regrets for not asking, oh well maybe we'll meet again.

Two random pictures of the main area:


Sunday was our Bleach day and the more "active day" as well. We got a ride from mom to Kemi just like on Saturday and at the con, it didn't take long before we ran into Sacchan again. With the four of us united again it could only mean one thing - photoshoot time.

All photos from this point and forward are taken by Shiro Samurai

Cosplayers: Jäätynyt Enkeli (Uryū Ishida) and Hasakitsuki (Rukia Kuchiki)
Photographer: Shiro Samurai

When I saw the photographer preparing for a serious round of photos something terrible hit me and hard. I could no longer resist the urge to...

...pull a derp face behind someone's back or...
... just be a derp and...
... photocrash!
Anyway, I had fun and

After that we were done photoshooting err photocrashing and bombing we headed indoors again and at 13.00 our group went to watch the FFFight in the second floor. We knew that Karri would be there so we went to watch it mainly to support him. The FFFight was better than I had expected it to be and I ended up enjoying it surprisingly much. All of it were improvised by the participants on the scene and like one can expect, some "fights" were just hilarious (ylipaino on ylivoima <3) and others well, boring.

Albert making Hange smell his shoe!
One fight scene with Hange Zoë from Attack on Titan against one gentleman called Albert (I think it was Albert) who's "attacking" Hange during his turn by making them smell his not-so-nice-smelling-shoe. Some people just have pretty ideas! During the day we also -while being on the first floor- saw this "con-train" with one people leading the "train" and the rest behind them is holding the shoulders of the person who is in front of them. I didn't join it, I'm too serious for that kind of thing. Really.

"Con-train" in the main area.
They had the "What is Love?" song playing meanwhile walking around the main area with more and more congoers joining them each round. When the clock started to reach 17.00 it was time for everyone to leave the con, most people already left around 15-16 and so did we. Before they took away the merchandise Hasakitsuki bought this one super surprise bag from one of the stores and got this flower hairpin thing. Meanwhile our gang was sitting near the con entrance she put it on Shiro Samurai's wig and mine. Uh, I didn't really like it, so I demonstrate it my way:

While sitting near the entrance we said goodbye to some friends who we met at the con like Karri and CissyDella. Before Sacchan had to leave we did our little "signal" thing. Something that we two always do with my Kratos' plushies when we're at my place or when I have at least one of my Kratos plushies with me, which I did.

Signal plz ~
Oh! By the way folks! I didn't buy anything during the con and neither did I run into Thaki and his bro there so far as I would recognize them. Oh well, next time!

That's all for this con! See you folks next time at Närcon!

Jäätynyt Enkeli out.


  1. Kitacon was so Derpcon for us this time. Must love the derps! <3 And I swear I'm so disappointed with myself that I missed to capture the beautiful photobombs. ;_; xD You should have seen that one crack-smile you did, oh god wish I had eternalized it. lololol

    I agree that the FFFight was surprisingly entertaining, especially the final fight with the challengers against the Dubinators!

  2. Oh god the amount of derp that happened! >XD But at least it was fun! *insert signal here* It was really nice to hang out with you guys there!

    FFFight really was entertaining! Huehuehuehue~ >8D
