I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get to this since PAX Aus was in the beginning of November last year! But hey, like I always say, better late than never right? 😛 So here is how it all went down…
I was so excited to wear this coordinate for the first day of PAX! Mostly, because I had just got my fancy paper dolls set in the mail a few days before we left, and I hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet. It was a dream dress get, so I was super pleased it arrived in time!
We spent most of the first day walking around the main room just looking at all the stuff. They had this cool super Mario brothers set up, I just had to get a photo in the pipe! There were so many huge stalls and big name games in the main hall that Mr Tardo and I were like kids in a candy store 😛 We spent most of the first day just wandering around looking at stuff.
We did however go to one panel. It was game of D&D, with Audience participation. It only went or about an hour, but I was in stitches the whole time. I was hilarious! They had us live tweeting idea’s for each character using the #liveRPGplus has tag, here was some of my input:

I also found a place nearby that made truly amazing caramel macaroons. I was naughty and went back and got one every day, and by the end of the holiday one of the guys working there recognized me and gave me a second one for free ^_^ yay Macaroons!
I managed to snap the strap on the shoes I was wearing halfway through the day, so I headed back to the hotel for an outfit change. Which then turned into playing with my newly purchased head set, and having a nap 😛
Day two I was in such a rush to get out the door (Mr Tardo was adamant he wanted to get there early), that I completely forgot to take an outfit shot! This is the only selfie I managed to get when I remembered later on in the day 😛 I wore my adorable blue toy parade mini skirt, my tea party blouse and a pink cardigan.
Since we were up early, Mr Tardo and I, and a few of the friends we were sharing our apartment with went out for breakfast 🙂
Most of the second day for me was spent playing board games, and running around collecting QR codes. I managed to find them all last year, but alas I missed 2 of them this year.
Zombiecide was one of my favourite games of the day. I had heard so much about it, and it did not disappoint!
For the last day I decided to go all out on the coordinate, so OTT sweet with my pink Milky Planet was what i decided to wear. I have the matching everything for my milky planet set, including the super adorable upside down ice cream headband ^_^
The sunday was a big day for cosplay, but strangely enough I didn’t take all that many photos. Our two friend Tom and Katey went as waring DOTA characters, just because they thought it would be cute to walk around holding hands dressed as them. I am so sorry, but I cannot actually remember the characters names! There was also this hilarious “Floreda” cosplay from the Simpsons that I just had to get a photo of it was so great.
The only panel we made it to on the last day was “The worst games ever created” panel. They were all x-box games, and included titles such as duke nuke’m and star trek the game. Pimp my ride kinda won as the worst game ever though. It was pretty funny watching the guest panelists play them though.
On the last day I finally ran into some other Lolita’s, who all looked just stunning and were lovely to chat with. Charlotte in the middle is actually from the Adelaide Comm 🙂
After lunch Katy and I decided to ditch the boys and go try out the “Paint n Take”.
I picked what looked like some sort of sorcerer, and of course painted her all in pin and purple. Katy went for more of a warrior, but he had to be pink also 😛
Then of course we ended the day off with some more board games. I forget the name of this one, although it was quite similar to Incan Gold, was super fun and the art work was so pretty.
Just as they were starting to kick us out, I got talking into buying a little card game called “F**k, the game” which is a little card game that uses colours and swear words to help train your brain. I am so glad I bought it, it’s so funny to play, especially with drunk people.
And that was PAX Australia for 2015! Mr Tardo and I have already got our tickets for next year, as it is becoming a rather un missable event for us! 🙂
