Posted by on Oct 29, 2014 | 2 comments

Lots of things exciting things have been happening lately! Kitty and I have both been really busy making some life changes. It might be the last time we cosplay for a while—life priorities, man. School, jobs, friends and relationships to juggle. Anyways, I’m probably moving to the East Coast, permanently. Hehehe, which is why I decided to attend Anime...

Yay, I’m back from Otakon! It was really fun! Cinnabunny kept telling me that it was huge and she wasn’t lying. O_O Soooo many people. It was like the largest gathering of nerds ever, hehehe, so glorious! I wore Yuffie. =) Kitty was supposed to join me as Kairi from Kingdom Hearts but the convention conflicted with her schedule. ;_; I missed her but I...

A-kon 25 Review!

A-Kon still brings back fond memories for us! Two years ago, our first A-kon opened our eyes to cosplay. Poof, it was like a whole different world existed, filled with nerdy anime and manga fans like us—where were these people growing up? Anyways, of course we had to revisit the con that popped our cosplay cherries. But I think I was more excited about...

For Anime Matsuri, we decided to team up with Atelier Heidi again for the cosplay contest. Anime Matsuri typically enlists high caliber judges who have extensive knowledge of sewing and prop work. We really wanted to impress Catherine from GSTQ Fashions and Bill Winans of Angry Dog Studios. We thought something from Evangelion would be both worthy and...

Katsucon 2014 Review: Con Report!

For Katsucon, I decided to make a simple cosplay that would be comfortable to walk around in while I fangirled over people. I heard that this was the con for cosplay, and that really piqued my interest because I love staring at beautifully made costumes.   My Katsucon cosplay—songstress Yuna! Easy to hike around in. =) Due to inclement weather, we almost...

So after A-Kon 2013 this past summer, both of us took a break from cosplay. Four months flew by and BAM—Onicon X hit us. The first thing we did was hit up the dealer’s room! Kitty bought an adorable giraffe Kigurumi.  It was so cute, I couldn’t resist climbing into it too. =) Unbelievable, we both fit! (This is my favorite pictures of...

Argh, super late con review! >_< After A-Kon, neither of us could even gather the energy to look through photos or even think about cosplay. Honestly, we are all cosplayed out for now. X_x A-Kon 24—it felt like we waited forever for this convention. A-Kon holds a lot of special memories for us, because that was the first convention Kitty and I...

So Kitty and I went to Anime Matsuri this year and here’s a review on our experience there. =) We didn’t check into our hotel in 1PM on Friday because we were all super tired from the night before. Kitty and I were both rushing to finish up some details on our costumes—her arrow was limp, lol, and I had to spray paint some glasses red and make...

Our experience at Oni-con! This is way overdue. So Kitty and I almost didn’t go to Oni-con because we couldn’t figure out if it was happening or not. The website wasn’t up until three weeks before the date of the convention and by then we had already postponed our costumes for more pressing life events, haha. It was a huge headache finishing our...
