Well, I'd really like to say that Anime-Matsuri was a great time, but unfortunatly it wasn't. Without all my amazing friends there it would have been a pretty bland birthday weekend. Thankfully though, I was surrounded by great people and that really made the entire con for me! Otherwise, the location was far too small, loud, elevators were always packed and most of the time it was better just to hike all the way up to your floor via stairs than wait.
Edit: Oh and did I mention someone broke one of our props and didn't even apologize until I got really angry and started yelling at him for being so rude?? Well, yeah...someone did. -__-
The only day we ended up cosplaying was on Saturday where we wore our Pokemon gijinkas for the first time. That went over really well and I was surprised by how many people actually realized we were Pokemon! I was worried some people might not since they're a little different from a lot of gijinkas I see and also of not as well known Pokemon. You can see them here in MLZ's video from the con at 2:33 [link]
We're also slowly uploading them here and to the cosplay Facebook: [link]
Sadly, my next convention might not be for a long time.
Might have to wait all the way until August before we make a re-appearance but it will be with a lot of new costumes! We're changed it up a bit but I think the cosplays I'll have for the rest of this year are:
Nuriko - Fushigi Yuugi
Hakuryuu - Magi the Labyrinth
Xellos - Slayers
Hinata - Naruto Shippuden
Asha Greyjoy - A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones
