Finally recovered from the weekend and you could say I've had the best weekend just a shame that it ended too quickly because almost every SunnyCon gets even better and better. This was my third year and time going to SunnyCon during the weekend of 26th - 28th June which was held at The Pullman Lodge in Seaburn seafront in Sunderland. Instead of it being a two day event it was a three day event for VIP passers who bought their ticket well in advance, I did hear there was a wedding going on the Friday afternoon during SunnyCon but unfortunately for myself missed nearly a full day due to having a random seizure before coming to the convention and waking up in hospital. This is the second time that has ever happened to me but fully recovered after that with a few minor scars and scratches, I wasn't going let my weekend get ruined by that.
Not only that past SunnyCon conventions I've been to have always had one or two voice actors every year, this year most people would have had the chance to meeting both Sean Schemmel well known for his role for Goku from Dragon Ball but a few days before on both the Facebook page and Twitter page saying that Sean Schemmel wasn't feeling very well and his agent said he wasn't well enough to board the plane to fly over to England. The other guest who was supposed to be coming but turns out he dropped out at the last minute from what I heard on the Friday night one person said he got to the airport and was given an extra fee which he wouldn't cover it, a lot of people were a bit disappointed that Todd Haberkorn is well known for his role for Natsu from Fairy Tail.
This still didn't ruin everyone's weekend including myself everyone was having fun in general there were some really good cosplayers out there who entered the Cosplay Masquerade. But I'll who really did made everyone smile the other guest SunnyCon had was Uncle Kage, his real name is Samuel Conway is a chemist who holds a Ph.D. from Dartmouth and works in a laboratory in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. He is also the chairman of Anthrocon, the world's largest Furry convention, held annually in Pittsburgh, PA. Known as "Uncle Kage" to his fans, he is an experienced raconteur who has performed on stage all around The United States and even in such far-flung places as Germany, Australia, England and the Czech Republic. Everyone loved Uncle Kage throughout the whole convention no matter how much he had to drink he sure knew how to throw a party in general.
I thought that I was the only Kill La Kill cosplayer for this year ended up cosplaying as Aikuro Mikisugi did shout out the quote Nudist Beach quite a lot. Nice to know that there were a few Kill La Kill cosplayers even managed to get a mini group photo together as well during the Sunday. You would also think that there would be a load of Frozen cosplayers at a convention you are actually in fact wrong on that there wasn't any at all; there were quite a few Fairy Tail, Persona 3 and 4, Big Hero 6, Fire Emblem and Tokyo Ghoul cosplayers throughout the weekend including Pink Guy if anyone who has been watching any of Filthy Frank's videos on Youtube.
The convention itself also raised funds for charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Aid for Japan, and local charity, Sunderland Pride. Next year's SunnyCon is being moved to Newcastle next year but a mini event called Chibi Sunny which is happening this September and will give an idea on how things go when it comes to the actual convention next year in June plus getting the chance to meeting Quinton Flynn again at Chibi Sunny. But what future will next year's SunnyCon have in stock? Because I am already looking forward to next year as it is just need to think of a good cosplay for it especially if I plan to enter the Cosplay Masquerade.
Here are a few more photos I've took and one that one of my friends took too-
