My First Post and Anime Expo 2013| Part 1

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

My first post!  I decided to finally make a blog, where I can share all my fashion outfits, cosplay progress, and things I learn and make along the way~  whether it be food, travel, wedding plans ;)

For my first post, I would like to talk about my first Anime Expo experience this past weekend!  Anime Expo is the largest anime convention in North America.  I never thought i'd ever get a chance to go since it is on the west coast and I live on the east coast.  But opportunity came when I got round trip airfare with a Southwest Airlines deal and also hotel discounts from a friend.  Anime Expo this year was from July 4-7.  Day 1 is July 4rth, but I decided to explore California instead (more on my trip in my next post!)  I attended on Day 2, Friday.   I read on some forums that the lines to get your badges are really long.  My friend waited an hour and half on Day 1 to get her badge.  So I went on Day 2 as the registration line was supposed to open, at 8am.  No line at all!  I was able to walk right in and get my badge scanned and printed.  No problems at all :)

So here are some pictures from the convention...

I also want to share a video that we were so lucky to be a part of!

My friend actually gave us the idea to do this costume.  I didn't think my fiance would be willing to cosplay with me, but he thought it was a great idea!  The costume is perfect for him, since he is really tall (6'2) and doesn't want to show his face.  Everybody loved it!  So many people wanted to take a picture of us or with us.  It's definitely the most fun costume i've done.

I will be posting a tutorial on this cosplay in the future so please follow if you'd like to hear more about it!
