Anime Matsuri 2012 was really fun! I got a lot of pictures taken and met lots of cool people.Friday
- We got there in the afternoon, and I just barely made it for a photoshoot with
for my Vulpix cosplay, with
as Ninetails. I only had ~2 hours of sleep because I was working on my Vulpix plush
(started and finished the day before, actually). I'm definitely not doing that again, because my face looks pretty dead in some of the photos from that day >3>
Then I changed into Leafeon with my other Leafeon friend,
- I wore the pink outfit for Holo and did a photoshoot at my hotel with
as Lawrence. The window lighting was very nice and soft. Then I changed into Holo's green dress outfit and went to the con with Lawrence. We met with
for a photoshoot. A lot of people called me the Wise Wolf, and one person even came up to me and praised my attention for detail in my Holo cosplay (she's a facebook fan, it seems). I had to admit: that was a pretty big ego boost (+1) there...
After eating lunch with DrifterFreed
, I did a photoshoot
, and then I entered the cosplay contest. This was my second time doing this, and I really just wanted to do it, so I can get more pictures and hopefully a youtube video.
I recorded the entire cosplay contest (Youtube playlist here
), and I got a friend to record my walk-on
as Holo (and Lawrence) from Spice&Wolf. To my dismay, the music stand is blocking me entirely in the first half of the video. But I did find a better recording
of us by BrockLee (at 10:33). I also found a lot of sweet photos of me onstage (knew it was a good idea to enter the contest!) After that, I went to the FLOW concert and got their autographs. Fortunately I was able to skip in the autograph line (yay for talking to strangers waiting in line with you! Or in this case, strangers waiting for FLOW to get onstage). Haha, that's how I met DrifterFreed
too (skipping in line).Sunday
- I went to the dealers room again and bought a Fairy Tail emblem patch. All I bought were Spice&Wolf playing cards and a Fairy Tail emblem patch. Didn't spend too much money here.
