Had a lot of fun at AnimeNext. Managed to make a few friends while I was there and it was a blast. Even took part in my first cosplay Photoshoot, which was for Persona. Of course, I caught con flu so its taking me a few days to become mobile again.
Next con I'm looking at is probably gonna be Otakon down in Baltimore. Haven't been there for a few years, but all the con friends I've been meeting seem to be converging there, so it looks like I'm gonna need to start hunting for a hotel. Hopefully it won't be unbearably hot (Haha, who am I kidding?).
A friend of mine who's starting to cosplay with me has been bringing up various ideas for costumes that I've been interested in, its just a matter of narrowing them down.
-Ness (me) and Jeff from Earthbound: tinyurl.com/ohj35vf
-A party of four characters from Crystal Chronicles (Complete with the chalice, one of us being forced to hold it high above our head for the con): i.imgur.com/mpU29.jpg
-Tiz and Ringabel (me) from Bravely Default: tinyurl.com/ppbrbsj
Donnel or Lon'qu from Fire Emblem: Awakening: tinyurl.com/kedrqc2 &tinyurl.com/kf24qon
God, does anyone else even remember Crystal Chronicles? The only reason that hasn't been locked down is just a matter of figuring out whether people would even recognize us, because that one sounds like the most fun. I love all three of the other games mentioned, but Ringabel will be a pretty difficult one I imagine. The hair alone would be a challenge. And as far as a FE:A cosplay goes, I would need others to be willing to cosplay with me for that. FE:A wouldn't be nearly as fun without a Chrom or Lucina. Definitely would have to be a big group cosplay.
Anyway, I'll update here when I figure out what costumes I'm gonna decide on for Otakon and when I find a good hotel to crash at. Toodles for now.
