Don't feel bad, no one lives in my area either, actually >< I know that pain, trust me. All my friends live up in the Bay Area. Anyway. Back to the point.
The one wearing the Faye outfit was who I met, and by affiliation the Amber/Ambur you met. Unfortunately I spent more time with the Faye cosplayer then I did her. (And I've already forgotten most of what happened at Fanime, so yeah, bad memory? You and I may be tied.)
