Aya meeting ZUN by AKBear Aya meeting ZUN by AKBear
At Anime Weekend Atlanta, only 100 autograph tickets were handed out. And I was one of the people that received one!! 
ZUN was the nicest guy ever. I took so many creeper shots of him, but he was always happy to wave at meeee. TT///u///TT It would make me so happy~
I think I like ZUN more than I like Touhou now lol

Thank you so much!! ;u; He was super duper sweet. When he would walk bye, I'd wave all big like and he'd wave back with a big smile on his face. It made me love him so much, ahaha!!

Ayayayayayayayaya! 

You make ZUN's friendliness and happiness sound even more fabulous than what I imagined him to be like! 

If anything at all, I'd like to meet the man and see his smile and know that I can rest peacefully :D

I bet he was also pleased to meet you, since besides being a fan, you brought one of his creations to life with your cosplay which is very well done too! :D

I can't imagine how neat it must had felt to meet him in person =P
He seems to be the nice guy type of person, since he is always smiling in every shot I see of him :)

Good job at getting one of the 100 autograph tickets ^O^

Thank you! He really was just a sweet and laid back guy. I'm sure he was super surprised to see a bunch of Western people cosplaying from Touhou! When I met him I was totally shaking and about to cry lol. But he tweeted later that it was impressive that some of the Aya cosplayers were standing on one-leg geta (which was me and some other guy~). I kinda stalked him....lol.... but every time he'd walk by, I'd wave at him and he'd have a big smile on his face and wave back. He was just soooo nice!!

They said they were trying to give them out not just randomly, but to cool cosplayers and big fans that they saw too. The guy who gave me mine was so kind and complimented my cosplay! I was too happy.. ;///A///; <3

Meeting ZUN is a long shot away for me. But damn, he seems so likeable.

And your cosplay is flawless, as always. 
Great to see you again

No one really had a lot of time to just sit down and chat with him, but he was just walking around the con all the time taking pictures with people. I only saw him a couple times when he was doing that, so this was my first time actually talking with him. He was super sweet ;u;

Lucky! I ranted the whole ride with my dad back to Augusta about how I could've easily answered a golden ticket Q at the trivia panel. I still had fun seeing ZUN though.

AKBear Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
Aw man, I'm sorry. D: I didn't get a ticket until the last ZUN panel that there was. Some nice guy said I was the best Aya at the con, so it made me so happyy ;u; 
I'm glad you could still see him! It was a once in a lifetime experience!!

Yeah, you really were! Did you sew your cosplay? I can make weapons and stuff but I just can't sew clothes. I can do handbags, pillowcases, and foldable pillow beds but I just fail every time I sew a shirt. I'm posting my cosplay soon, so you can get an idea of who I was. I'm not wearing my blazer, but you can still tell who it is. I was SOOO happy to find out you're on DA!!! Are you going to MomoCon this year?
