So it’s been a quiet month – nothing too exciting happening, but lots of progress behind the scenes. I’m currently preparing for AnimeCon where I’ll be performing in Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup in June, so there’s a lot to do! It’s all very exciting and my flights are now booked, so the hype (and panic) is starting to set in!
So what will I be taking to AnimeCon?
Top left->lower right
🌟 Sakura/Tomoyo – Cardcaptor Sakura, with PopcornKuma
🌟 Sumomo – Chobits, with PopcornKuma for Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup!
🌟 Sakura “Platina” – Cardcaptor Sakura, with PopcornKuma as Sakura “Catch You Catch Me”
🌟 Shallotte – Atelier Shallie, with Lex Cosplay as Shallistera
🌟 Leon “School” – Tales of Destiny (something simple and casual for parties!)
Since AnimeCon is a full-time convention and runs from morning to night, I’m taking a couple of extra costumes to get changed into if I want to – usually at UK conventions I take around 2 per day, so this is actually less than usual for me. I’m also taking Shallie to shoot with Lex (at long last!) and Leon as my obligatory “Tales” costume for the weekend.
Most of these have a lot of work to go aside from “Platina” Sakura – which is kind of nerve-wracking, since there’s not much time left now! Truth be told I’ve been struggling with Sumomo – despite her being such a simple costume, every possible thing that can go wrong has gone wrong, so it’s been hard to get motivation to keep at her 24/7. In the meantime I’ve been fixing up Shallotte and working on Leon here and there. I’ve been packing my case as I go too, and so far all of my make-up and toiletries are sorted (with a hefty 7 eyeliners.. I’m not even sure how that happened, but at least I’m ready for it now)!
AnimeCon is likely to be my only “big convention” this year, aside from EGX which I hope to attend if they host ECG qualifiers. I have some big plans for ECG too, but I won’t be saying too much about that until it actually comes around. Here’s hoping everything works out in good time for a great weekend!
