Video Game History Museum Exhibit & Bedford Anime Convention 2014!!

Hey guys, so Animarathon was a real blast and now it's finally time for the Summer Con season to really kick off. I didn't attend Colossal but plan to go next year. This weekend I'm attending two events related to Video Games!!

      1. The Toledo Art Museum is hosting a very special exhibit on the history of video games!! It begun yesterday and extends through next Thursday. [facebook event]

I'll be cosplaying Phantom R from the 3DS game, Rhythm Thief and The Emperor's Treasure.

       2. The Bedford Library up in Temperance MI, is hosting their convention, and this year, it's Video Game themed!! I'll again, wear Phantom R or possibly Guy Cecil there, and will be heading up with my fiance and a friend. [facebook event]

I'm so excited for both events and cannot wait to debut Phantom R!! I've been playing the game a lot recently, and am stuck on a super hard Rhythm. xD the most hated one R21. I'll be back on Monday likely for entries on how things went and photos. :)

Cosplay Photos: Casual Ittoki & con recap of Animarathon 2014!!

Hey guys~ Just thought I'd post a little something for a recap of the first con of the Spring I went to a little over three weeks ago.
I attended Animarathon, a local convention organized by the Student run Anime Club on campus. It has been running for 12 years, and I've gone in '11, '12 and now '14.


Little Kuriboh was a guest at the con, and his Wife and he had to take three planes to get to Ohio from California!!

I cosplayed as Ittoki Otoya of Uta No Prince-sama!! I had lots of fun and found some other Uta Pri people to hang with!~ I had sushi and then we walked around the con. I also came across two different Harukas!!

Cosplay Site Updates!! & Animarathon!!

So, recently, I've gotten back in touch with my cosplay spark and am getting all of my costume sites in order.  It's quite the job, as I have a lot of them. (the ones I have accounts for anyway)

Next, is the exciting news that I'm finally attending my first con of the year!!
It's this month, only a few weeks away!! I'm super happy to go and have a cosplay planned.
I'm going as Ittoki Otoya of Uta Pri~ Casual as I only have the wig right now. I will though, be making some other outfits later on. I also plan to cosplay more characters from the show after Ittoki, so I'll be working on them in months.
Currently I'm watching the show before hand to see everything, I'm terribly behind on so many shows xDD

Bedford Library Con recap -- Image heavy!!

--So....long time no write huh? I've been amazingly preoccupied with things in my life and am finally having time to get to this. I feel very sad, though by a certain someone calling me names. But, I don't want to get angry over it, as it's too small of a thing. was mean.

--Recap: The con was amazing, and I saw tons of friends, got Manga, had fun playing Tennis with Nekuou. <3 This won't be very long for now (I'll edit later on) but I'll give main points.

  • I saw many friends [Nekuou, Chizuru, and her sis, Adam, and more~]
  • Had a photoshoot inside with Hakuouki love. :3
  • Played Tennis
  • Danced at the Rave
  • Had Ramen
  • Took tons of pictures
These photos are all un-edited only because I didn't get to them in the time span I needed to, so why bother? Still, they're going up now.

[Cosplay Photoshoot] || Guy Cecil // 6.8.13

Several hours ago, Rob and I went out to the field near my house and the trees near the field, and had a small photoshoot of my Guy Cecil [Good Spirits] costume. It's yet another W.I.P as I need a correct sword, and vest. I will not wear it again during Summer OMG even as the sun was low in the sky the humidity killed me xDDD I'd rather do his swim attire, Aquatic Ape so much more~~ I'd have to get another wig for that though lol.

Cosplaying Guy is very fun, and I've so far now done it four times, once at a party, at Youma 2011, both days I went, and yesterday during the shoot. :D He's a fun character, even with his phobia, and when I first played Tales of the Abyss for PS2, I fell in love with him upon seeing him come into Luke's room at the beginning of the game.

I'm such a lucky GUY [haha] to have an amazing cosplayer as my partner, Alex. He makes the best Asch ever!! <3

 Here's my few favorites from the shoot. To see everything, please see my FaceBook page >>HERE<<

[Cosplay Photoshoot] || Kaoru Kaidoh // 5.11.13

Last month, my friend Rob and I went down to the BGSU campus Tennis Courts to take some pictures of my W.I.P Prince of Tennis costume. [I've become a big Tennis fan, and practice frequently~ I hope to possibly attend a Tennis event down in Cincinnati in August!]It's still very much working to be finished, as I need to actually MAKE the right bandanna, Finish hemming my shorts, and a few other things.

We got some photos and a few are up on my FaceBook page >>HERE<< though I'll put my favorite ones here too.

The weather was rather gloomy, and I felt chilly in the Tank Top and shorts sitting against the net with my racquet and Tennis balls. Since then I've bought plenty more of the little green things and want to have another shoot possibly in a few weeks. \o\ We'll see what happens.

Taken from the Tumblr Post >>HERE<<

"I still need to finish the shorts, and they’re short on one side and I’ll get actual shorts soon. I also need the jersey, but I’m likely going to have to get the whole shebang, I’ll likely cosplay a few others of Seigaku.
Being a W.I.P it’s not the best in these pictures. (my binding is off center, my hair isn’t right [I need it cut again], and my shorts are still pinned. OTL) I’m such a nitpicker and really hate most of these but put ‘em up anyway.
I got actual Puma shoes today as a birthday gift to myself, and they’re awesome. I also need to get new/more Tennis balls, and a new racquet, the one I own is about 9 years old. ^^;;
More photos will be taken soon, and hopefully it’ll be a better day. Today was kinda cold and a bit rainy though we got to the courts in time for some photos before we walked on our way home and it began to rain."

Now photos!!!

My Puma shoes, though not the exact kind Kaidoh wears,
they were so worth the $52 for my b-day gift to myself <3
So, the shoes pictured above were bought specifically for both the costume and playing Tennis, though I need to get them stretched a bit, as they're tight in my toes, though they are my size. The 9s I tried on were too lose. and I wear 8 1/2

Kaidoh at the net

Don't mess with the Viper
Also, as I'm so into Prince of Tennis, I'm getting some friends to cosplay from it with me sometime in the near future!! Alex will be Tezuka Buchou, and Rob will be Momoshiro! :D When that happens, I hope maybe next year we can all go to a con as them and have fun Tennis times~~
