It was a pretty special day for us because four years ago, we had our first shoot and bonding day with Ysabel ~SavingSunlight at the venue, Fernwood Gardens.
We've been really into Adventure Time, so many months ago we decided we'd do AT cosplay, and that Fantasy Quest would be a fun opportunity to do so. It feels weird how we had been looking forward to this event for ages, and now it's over!
some were taken by me and my friends using my camera
photographer friends on dA
others were from Facebook friends who tagged me
Aki — Finn
Melo — Jake
Alex — Prince Gumball
Ysabel — Marceline
Jin — Marshall Lee
Dom — Hunson Abadeer (a.k.a. Marceline's Dad)
Charmie — Ice Queen
Marien — Flame Princess
Special thanks to Alice and Rabbit's Shop for supplying literally all of our cosplay contact lenses.
And also to Hatah Hatah for the Jake hat!
WE'RE SO COLORFUL!
It was great how everyone had no trouble picking characters they wanted when we first talked about this. I chose Marshall Lee because I'm one of the many who want to see more of him after his brief appearance in the Fionna and Cake episode. I hope they fulfill their promise of another genderswap episode, and this time focusing on Marshall Lee! Marceline is my favorite in the original cast, so I'm positive I'll like Marshall too! I also like his clothes and hair. I plan to make an axe bass for next time!
Kat ~moonlightflight was supposed to cosplay Princess Bubblegum, along with Timecake who was going to be Fionna but they both got sick that weekend. They're okay now, though!
We attended the event with our friends who were in Disney and Legend of Korra cosplay! More on that later!
Time to rewind for a bit!
A few days before the event, we got together to try out the makeup we bought for those of us who are not supposed to be, well, human-colored. After a bit of experimenting, we had some Adventure Time food!
Excuse the quality pictures from this part, these were just from my phone, hahah. Getting nearby objects to focus on a BlackBerry is balls.
Bacon pancakes, makin' bacon pancakes! [link]
I take some bacon and I'll put it in a pancake!
GRAPE JELLY DAWGS
Cheesedog sandwiches with grape jelly
Because Resh was like, HEY I BROUGHT GRAPE JELLY FOR THOSE WHY AREN'T YOU EATING IT
So we did
(I actually enjoyed these)
Also, mustache bread
And at the Mandaloria base, we screamed while watching the braver ones play Ib. AUGH I KEPT JUMPING
Next game was Slender
It has been a while since I screamed the way I did over this game
THE STUPID BATHROOM MAZE
"GET IT GET THE DRAWING RUN RUN RUN IF HE'S HIDING IN A CORNER I'M GOING TO CRY"
And here are some shots from when I was working parts of my friends' costumes. Many thanks to Marko and Dom for helping me out!
Ice Queen's crown
Prince Gumball's crown
My nails were painted grey because I'd be painting my skin grey for Marshall Lee. My nails ought to match, right?
Flame things for Flame Princess' wig
And now, onward to the day of Fantasy Quest 2!
I don't know WHY but Melo !BallistaShark decided to try on Charmie's Ice Queen gown. Resh ~Reskiy delightedly documents it.
OH MY GLOB, PROMCOMING
Another round of Adventure Time-style food! We had the BEST TACO SALAD EVER for lunch and it was so good that we wanted it for dessert too. We replaced the nacho chips with Oreos. YUP STILL GOOD.
And after a long period of painting ourselves grey (Marceline, Marshall Lee, and Hunson Abadeer), pink (Prince Gumball), orange (Flame Princess), blue (Ice Queen), tan (Jack Sparrow) and white (Mulan) and everyone getting their gear on, we were off to Fantasy Quest!
WHAT TIME IS IT? AAAAADVENTURE TIME!
If all our friends are included though, we'd be:
REVOLUTIONARY LEGEND OF DISNEY TIME!
Miguel — Captain Jack Sparrow
Cassie — Mulan
Sammy — Korra
Bok — Mako
Angelo — Bolin
Alecs — Asami
Tien — Amon
Eiya — Chi Blocker
Princess Bubblegum cosplayingRevolutionary Girl Utena
The venue was beautiful, so we were taking pictures everywhere while greeting friends and dancing all over the place. Lots of people took pictures of us too so here's a buttload of group pictures, hahah
IDEK what I'm doing to Jake. And Utena looks like she's wearing Prince Gumballs crown here. I KNEW THAT WAS YOU, PB.
I was wondering what Jake tastes like
Adventure Time vs. Legend of Korra
We were photobombing each other so much at times that I can't tell which group was originally being photographed
We met some sweet girls from Iloilo — Bea and Ashti. They gave us a box of sweets! Thank you!
Derping on a bench. Finn is looking kinda lost, and Ice Queen and I are checking on our non-human colored makeup. (It faded on my arms, given how rowdy the lot of us were that day. ) Flame Princess seems to be hungry and may or may not be nibbling on mini macho Finn. Marceline is practicing her spooky face while Hunson Abadeer looks for some souls to suck.
Flame Princess: EHRMEGERD I WANNA BE NEXT TO FEHNNNN
Finally a proper shot.
I brought Alex some Bubble Tape because, well, Prince Gumball. We could use it to patch his highness up if he gets hurt. Hahah! Also, it says Hubba Bubba, and Bubba is PG's first name.
And then everyone started picking on Prince Gumball.
Mmmmm candy people
I threatened to bite into it instead of rolling it out like tape, hahah
"You're eating my heart!"
In the end, Alex had some too
Bubble Tape is still the softest and yummiest gum
So much pink!
Finn wanted in on the bubblegummy goodness
Flame Princess's invisible bubblegum bubble
Daddy, you didn't hog the gum
Bubblegum bubble master!
He's after the bubble!
And then we actually did find an Ezio cosplayer!
What time is it?
(CAN EVERYONE PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO LOOK AT FINN HERE. HAHAHAH)
Melo and Resh interviewed him, he was awesome
Another awesome hooded friend! as a Ringwraith! (Gauntlets by DRIndustries)
The "Hey Kat, we miss you!" shot Featuring , as Korra and Kevin (geekev.com) as Marty McFly.
THIS SWAN WAS MEAN.
Bad ideas: We saw a teepee and despite the heat and humidity we were like LET'S GO INSIDE! OKAY!
EVERYBODY CRAM YOURSELVES INSIDE HERE! OKAY!
....AAAAAHHHHH IT'S HOT I CAN'T BREATHE MY MAKEUP IS MELTING OFF EVERYONE GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT
My colorful friendsssss
We spotted another Marceline who was by herself so we were like, HEY MARCY COME UP HERE AND JOIN US.
In retrospect, I think our big, noisy, colorful group might have scared her.
We found another resident of The Land of Ooo! 13 year-old Princess Bubblegum! We saw her and started yelling again. "PEEBEE!" "TOO YOUNG!!" "ONE MILLION YEARS DUNGEON!!!" "UNACCEPTABLLLLLLLE!!!"
Kung Fu fighting with Chie!
At one point, someone approached us and requested for Prince Gumball x Marshall Lee, HAHAH
Alex was like, "Oh gosh I'm so sorry, Jin" and I'm like, "Nah, I'm used to it"
I have yet to see how those pictures came out, though. Hmmm.
"NO! YOU BUTT."
's Madoka cosplay is too cute
How you doin'?
Posing for Melo's Jake face
Chillin' with Flame Princess
Selca time with Finn, Marshall, and Marcy
I didn't realize what a big group we were, hahah
Flynn and Jack creepin' on some princesses
Jake being Totoro
Jake = Totoro
PG = Mei
According to Melo, "BECAUSE YOU'RE SMALL"
Hahahah oh, Mulan. You bring honor to us all.
WHAT TIME IS IT???
Adventure Time group shot at the gazebo! Thank you, Ryan *jrjs!
These pictures hardly do justice to our antics and tomfoolery, but Resh got most of it ON VIDEO!
Click the above image or this link [link] for Resh's coverage of the event!
Studio Omoshiroi also visited coming from Malaysia and compiled a video of FQ2! His version shows more of other cosplayers at the event, including special guests Yuegene Fay, Kaika, Viospace, Lavena, and more! (This video made me wish we had stuck around for the ball that evening, but my friends and I were just so tired already! Maybe next time we'll go later in the day so we last long enough for the ball )
Almost complete group shot of us, including cameraman/evil genius Resh ~Reskiy! Thank you, ~z3LLLL!
We had an absolutely MATHEMATICAL day, full of laughter and bonding even way after we left the event.
