Check out Day 1 of my MISTI-Con adventures here.
Day 2: Friday, May 22, 2015
Friday was the first full day of MISTI-Con. So I forgot to mention that I picked up a homemade version of Cards Against Humanity but Harry Potter style. It's called Cards Against Muggles and it is seriously addicting. It became pretty popular at MISTI and it was sold out the first day. I believe the creator is adding people to a mailing list when a second batch will be made.

After a quick bite to eat, my boyfriend and I headed to From the Closet to Cosplay: A Beginner's Guide to Costuming on a Budget roundtable at Belknap. Krissy Kelly, Christina and Ni were leading the roundtable. It was nice to hear about how to create a fabulous cosplay on the cheap. There are so many places to find nice everyday pieces that can be also used as cosplay pieces. You don't need to spend a lot of money to put something together that is amazing and unique.
A little bit before 5:00, my boyfriend and I headed down to the Pavilion to get good seats for the Merlie Costume Superlative Showcase. Although it was a bit windy today, the showcase went pretty well. There were some amazing costumes that were shown off. What I loved the most about the showcase was the little surprise at the end. A woman proposed to her boyfriend in front of everyone on stage! Of course he said yes! It was so heartfelt and definitely the perfect ending to the showcase.
Dinner was calling so my boyfriend and I went to grab some food with Alberto, Jess and Krissy at Fratello's. I love love Fratello's! They have some scrumptious food and they have huge portions. I ended up eating half my pesto chicken pappadelle for dinner and decided to save the rest for the next day.
I didn't have much planned for the rest of Friday night but I definitely took advantage of the free time to meet up with people in the Common Room and the Main Lobby. I was pretty exhausted after Day 2 and went to bed later than I planned. Overall, Day 2 went quite well! I even met the Night Bus girl aka my sister!
