I missed everyone!!! I can't believe an entire semester has gone by already.
School has kept me away, but I am now done with classes for the time being. That means I can continue updating AAAttackers, YAY! I got a whole bunch of new ideas during the hiatus and I can't wait to put them into use.
Oh yeah, I promised to share the cosplay I was working on.
So I built a large robot suit from my favorite mecha series "Zoids." This specific model is called "Liger Zero Schneider," it is Liger Zero's close-combat form. I also put these pictures up on deviantart. My account name on DA is epiknoodles cuz they didn't let me use spaces.
It turned out totally awesome!
There I am in the 2nd picture adjusting my glasses.
My cousin is holding the original scale model of what I built as my cosplay as a comparison.
But yeah, I built this entire robot out of carboard. I am so happy and proud of myself for being able to build something so magnificent on such a large scale. I'm sad to say that I ended up not taking my awesome cosplay to the anime convention. This was because my parents disapproved of the entire thing, mainly saying that it was over-sized, hard to walk in, and it's a walking hazard.
I was super sad during the entire convention because I couldn't cosplay. They tried to get me to wear one of my old cosplays (like my Bleach shinigami outfit). I refused because I didn't want to go through the trouble of digging it up from storage.
Also, there weren't very many cosplayers that I was interested in taking pictures of this year. I got Neku from "the world ends with you" in the first picture. I've really gotten into the "Persona" fandom, so I took a picture of a group cosplaying as some of the girls from "Persona 4" in the second picture.
When I looked over the pictures I took... I busted out laughing because of the second picture. I'm talking about Naoto (second pic, wearing the blue cap, standing in the middle). The look on Naoto's face in the picture... priceless... She's got a derp face in the picture I took. Derpy Naoto, lol. Enlarge the picture, you'll see what I mean. But I know the character this person is cosplaying as is rather callow and serious, that derp face killed the imagery I had for Naoto Shirogane for a short moment and it made me giggle. The next day, I ran into different Naoto (this one has her gun, awesome!) and she was with another fellow P4 cosplayer dressed as Yosuke in the third picture. Little did I know that they were the panel hosts of the Persona Panel I was about to attend...
I had fun at the convention this year, even though the programming sucked since their schedules were messed up and apparently there weren't very many panel suggestions this year which in turn created a mess of random panels (most of them being DIYs). I'm upset about not being able to cosplay this year. It's okay, I'll cosplay as Narukami Yu from Persona 4 next year, I really wanna carry a golf club and tarot card.
