Yeah, I'm not dead yet haha. I've been quite busy with work, school, and searching for work also(I'm trying to find something to work half the year at a company and switch to school every month, but heck, it's hard to find that). But I did spare some time to go at Japan Expo 2015! Maybe you've met me, I've been there in cosplays. Since August I've started playing Kantai Collection, because I love the idea of transforming machines into humans(reason why I love SHO/Xenon-P's songs: Hayabusa talking about the satellite who went into space, told by this song like a travel; Himawari about the weather satellites trying to protect the sunflower/himawari etc...). And I'm a bit of a firearms enthusiast and love mechanized designs soooo... Yeah. The designs are better than Strike Witches IMO, so I decided to get into that universe. What pleased me the most was probably, just like the Touhou universe, all the fanmade stuff, we've got some awesome doujin stories. Seriously, there's a lot of potential, since those WWII boats had a tragic end for most of them, so a retelling in human form is really generating some feels.
... Anywayyyy, I could say a lot but I'll keep it short. So, why am I talking about Kancolle... Well, because I was cosplayed as a Teitoku/Admiral from that game!
Yup. I was an admiral thursday
the 2nd, sunday
, and a part of saturday. Fuck, it was hot, and the cosplay didn't help.
Was also a casual Wo-class
during saturday. Didn't feel like cosplaying, so just took my hoodie, but tried to keep the colors (blue eyes-> blue sunglasses, black, white...).
Friday, I was in a Walter C. Dornez cosplay duo
with a friend: I was the young version, he was the dark-suit one at the end.
That's it for me. Concerning other cosplays, there was a really cute Rena Ryuugu
near the exit, I'm glad I saw her! Rena cosplays are getting rare. There were also really well done cosplays of Utsuho and Orin
by Suika & Rin Cosplay. Aaaand some JoJo cosplays
who aren't Jotaro
Aaaand my loot
. Not much, but I'm super happy about that Meiling that Azumi-kun from Studio Okakits drew for me! The buttons are also from Studio Okakits, and the CD is from Voxmakers!
Aside from that, well, didn't take a lot of pictures, I mostly wandered with my friends around, and went to some shows (Voxmakers ones mainly, but also Shigeru Miyamoto's Masterclass). Still had a lot of fun! I chatted a lot with some friends who had a booth there.
After that, I slept until late for three days, needed to rest. It was so hot these days that I couldn't find sleep until early morning dammit. Right now it's been better, but hell, we were at 36°C (~97°F) easily each night even though it was midnight.
Anyway, just givin' a bit of news and reporting for the Japan Expo. I've mostly stopped drawing these years, but maybe I'll post some sketches next time as I'm working a bit on some original shipgirl for fun with friends.
