TO MY LIVE JOURNAL.
it's leap day, so, like my posts, only happens once every 4 years.
and it doesn't count.
warning: no photos of me in a cloud costume
just other costumes
ok first are NOT katsucon photos, you've been tricked. these are photos of some glasses i bought at the american girls store. i bought them for akiya:
but i misjudged the size of his tiny head.
so i put them on other things in my room to make them smart
turns out they are magic glasses and all of these items came to life immediately upon donning them. go figs!! anyway
here's a cat
(jisuk's cat, napoleon)
uh here's some progress pics of the GIANT SHURIKEN THAT SAYS ANIME ON IT that i made for my tiger & bunny cosplay of ivan/origami cyclone:
OKAY now we're at katsucon. katsucon is the best con, mainly because it takes place at the gaylord hotel in the DC harbor. i want you to imagine a huge perfect temperature glass atrium in the middle of february, sunny enough and with enough trees to make you feel like you're outside WITHOUT ACTUALLY HAVING TO GO OUTSIDE, crawling with little girls dressed like hatsune miku. sound like paradise??? you bet your ass it does
ACTUALLY it was crawling with kids dressed as homestucks (also mainly little girls)
i, seriously, holy fuck. i'm not like, caught up on homestuck or whatever and i barely know what a troll is. but i think i know every troll because of all the cosplayers. this isn't just at conventions. i went to karaoke with my friends and there was a homestuck meet-up of about 40 of them. at karaoke. in COSTUME. there were way more homestucks than any anime cosplay. it's fucking weird.
FFT ninja holy shit
there was a lot of tiger and bunny
No. 6 cosplay!
HOLY SHIT DEADMAN WONDERLAND COSPLAY. I, DUDES, YOU GUYS. i've only ever seen hot dudes cosplaying from deadman wonderland (and this is the 3rd one, ever). no wait, at otakon there was also a tiny girl cosplaying a HORRIFYING tiny girl from that show. like, she was too young to have seen the scenes of her character. anyway. this show rules and it cut off at 11 episodes for some weird reason and i miss it.
bride's story cosplay! her outfit was fucking phenomenal, i haven't even read this manga but i have stared at this artwork for hours so i recognized her immediately.
everyone in this photo is awesome
neku *BUILT LIKE A NOMURA CHARACTER*
speaking of neku jesus christ you guys twewy characters gonna be in the new kingdom hearts game. i pooped a little when i heard
this sephiroth was too busy being a nerd to let me take his photo so this will have to do. might have been a nice costume??????
ok so friday night i cosplayed from shiki WHICH IS SOME SHOW FROM 2010 NO ONE WATCHED (gackt does a voice in it so maybe a couple people watched it) but i got creepily obsessed with AND STILL AM AND I DON'T FULLY UNDERSTAND WHY. it has nothing to do with gackt.
no one recognized this costume at all but i love my natsuno wig so much i was just happy to be wearing it. i got kanna to cosplay it too but she didn't hold still long enough to take any pics >:(
BIG THANKS TO wagashi FOR DOING A LITTLE PHOTOSHOOT OF ME LOOKING TSUNDERE aaa
the most amazing thing that happened all con was friday night, we witness a dance-off between two guys cosplaying members of the jabbawockeez dance troupe and some random kids who could breakdance like nobody's business.
i took quite a few vids. which i should upload sometime
ok on to saturday
a lovely butz first thing in the morning
SERGE AND KID HURRAY
can you spot the ouran twins
T_T CLEARANCE KEISUKE. and kiriwar. and motomi. what is this, a sale for THE BEST CHARACTERS. ARE WE HAVING A THE-BEST-CHARACTERS SALE.*
*said through tears
there has never been a more fitting backdrop for any costume i've ever done
kasey being amazing at the T&B photoshoot
what the fuck super perfect FFXIII-2 cosplay
GUYS that suguro is cuter than ACTUAL ANIME SUGURO. when do you ever see someone who is too cute to cosplay a character.
the shima is EXACTLY the right amount of cute
even the phrase "arrested development cosplay" is soothing to say. out loud
not a wall of pocky but still a perfect origami cyclone backdrop
me and kanna bein kawaii
this emperor lelouch robe was good which is why i should have cropped this photo at the feet
someone at the masquerade proposed to his girlfriend on stage ;w; pretend you can tell that's what's happening in this photo
and CONGRATS DUDES WHO WON BEST IN SHOW *__* jezeroth yuushi
DANCE BREAK PART 2
after the masq we had wine and pizza and i thought it was really funny to "make gifs on my phone" which is a lot like taking photos and then scrolling through them quickly. i've simulated the experience for you here you're welcome
i hung out with wagashi in the game room and we happily played pop'n music until the anime rave started and you couldn't even hear the games. then we angrily played pop'n....
then we went to the world cosplay summit competition which was super awesome. look at all those cosplayers on one stage
KHAL DROGO COSPLAY......................
meanwhile, in the otherwise idyllic pseudo-town outside the hotel, giant spelling errors occur and are printed in large typeface
wagashi was live streaming to nico and showing them the Great American Dealer's Room when these narutos (who have been walking around in perfect formation all con) stopped to perform some well-syncronized hand movements for us in a line. not gonna lie it was awesome
a Cool Riza
me n kasey being keisuke and akiraaaa :'>
i actually like this pic
I ALSO HAVE SOME PRETTY BALLER PICS OF ME AND panjapanja in keisuke and akira costumes from ikkicon, taken with R's awesome camera.....KIM.... CAN I POST THESE? Y/N....
and that last thing you see leaving the hotel, a horrifying giant hand rising up over the harbor. the trick is to attack the hand and then the head arises from the sand and you can hit it while he's stunned. do this 3 times
whew that was long. well i should post this before it's not leap day anymore.
BYE GUYS i'll try to post again. perhaps next time i put on an anime wig #sorry
