From Anime with Love…

AH! My dorm room is filled with anime!

And that isn’t a bad thing either. Well, I made it back to campus safely. Immediately, I went about decorating the dorm with my personal touch. Gackt, Hyde, BLEACH, Utena, Vampire Knight… there is a lot of anime stuff here. Luckily, my roommate loves anime too. Well, I still have a whole day to go through before classes start. I’m working on a new story and trying to finish an older one too. Somewhere in there I’ll study… lol.


AnimeUSA Secured

Wow. I haven’t updated in a long while. 0_0 It seems writer’s block has affected my blogging too. >< Oh well. I’m just hear to say that AnimeUSA has been secured. Although it got off to a shaky start, this year’s con circuit for me has worked out a lot better than I can imagine and seems it will end with a bang when VERSAILLES comes to AUSA!!! I died when I read that. Literally. My heart has only skipped a beat three times in my life; that time it skipped several. LOL. I’m really excited. Not to mention all the fun I’m going to have at T-Mode in September; I really need to gather my money and wits.

As always, the costumes continue to be the same though I have a super special costume in planning from my new favorite anime series… Gankutsuou! Yes I know…. I’m late but never late than never. It was just fortunate I found the box set since it was a Geneon title. My three quest finally ended and I enjoyed every moment of it. But I digress. The award winning Rose Bride costume returns to AUSA along with the movie version and school uniform. Hopefully I can snag a new wig so I can do the TV version at last (I really don’t want to use the new one I brought for Anime Mid-Atlantic because it looks so nice as it is). Also, I’ll get to see all my friends again and both AUSA and T-Mode have balls this year. My con circuit is going out with a bang this year! WH00T!

I have to update my Utena page with the new pictures and costumes. I know I say this a lot but hopefully now I can update this more often? ^^


Anime Mid-Atlantic is in another 72 hours! I’m almost ready. My costumes arrived safe and sound this afternoon and they both are extremely wonderful. All that is left is for me to do is finish my wigs and shoes and pack! ^_^ I’m still not excited about this con as I would be say if it were Katsucon or Otakon, but I’m looking forward to just getting away for a while and hanging out with some new friends (and the two other Utena cosplayers that will be there, lol)

Anime Mid-Atlantic

… still have no idea why I am going this year. I’m slightly pissed now because Otakon announced that JAM Project is their musical guest. T.T So why did I original want to go to Anime Mid-Atlantic? The original reason was because it was going to be a heck of a lot closer, Arlington, VA. However, it got kicked out of the hotel and moved to Virgina Beach. So, my next reason was that I’ve never been to Virginia Beach so I might as well go. Such a weak excuse. >< The con isn’t appealing to me right now, other than they announced on cosplay.com they are trying out an alternative hall costume contest for those of us who are sewing-machine-challenged. Other than that, I decided against doing karaoke at this con and I generally have the same feeling of dread I had about Katsucon… and Katsucon was nearly a disaster. Not completely… but very close to being one; the second worse con experience ever only topped by Otakon 2005 for the simple fact that I barely remember Otakon 2005. Weird.

So, I’m going to Anime Mid-Atlantic because I need a summer con that is slightly less-expensive than Otakon (though, I’m still trying to sneak that in somehow because I really wanna see JAM Project), I wanna go to the beach and… well… that’s it for now. I have to wait until September to catch up with Johnny Yong Bosch again (unless I put money down for that new Bleach card game with the special voice actor signatures on them… unless they are Japanese voice actor signatures… any voice actor signature is a star in my book =^_^=) and my main con for this year besides disaster-con in February will be the awesome AnimeUSA on Columbus Day weekend! YAY!!! I can’t wait until October.

The good thing about Anime Mid-Atlantic is that if it is anything like last year, the Utena cosplayers will have free reign over the con. Plus, it seems the Ghost in the Shell cosplayers are emerging this year and some other cosplays from anime/games I haven’t heard off. I personally am now on a Code Geass kick now… of course I’ll be watching the Bleach cosplayers, looking for Trinity Blood & Vampire Knight cosplayers and finally all us Utena people out there (w00t for Utena!). So I’ll be parading around in my various incarnations of Anthy handing out roses and I guess taking pictures for once. Don’t ask, I have mixed feelings about Anime Mid-Atlantic. It will either be okay or it won’t be okay. It doesn’t matter, I still have AnimeUSA to look forward too.

BTW, my two Anthy wigs and one Inuyasha/Yazoo wig came in the mail last week. They are all very awesome!!!!!

Site Updates

I changed the image again. Now it’s Hiroki and Tsunehito from D! There is a new page (perhaps section is more like it) dedicated to my Utena cosplays. I plan on making a general cosplay page for all my other costumes too.
