Indiana Comic Con 2014

No Comments 64 Views0

Thanks to everyone who came to Indiana Comic Con this weekend and showed up to our panels and the costume contest. Saturday was pretty hectic, but I had a great time! I made my Sakura from Street Fighter cosplay in a week for this con and I really enjoyed working with A Girl From Mars and Nephlite Props who are two really nice and awesome cosplayers local to Indy like me! We had a really hard time choosing winners for the costume contest given our prejudging that we tried so hard to get was cancelled, mostly due to a lack of space, and how quickly we had to come to a decision. There were so many talented people that walked away without an award, but know that we saw everyone’s hard work and talent and had a very difficult decision to make. I hope everyone had a good time, and considering this was a brand new con to Indy, I’m sure things will be even better next year!

Here’s an article from the Indy Star and some photos they included from the contest:

Working with Aniplex and American Cosplay Paradise at Anime Central 2012

No Comments 33 Views0

During Anime Central 2012, I was able to help promote the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica through a partnership with American Cosplay Paradise and Aniplex.

I wore my Homura cosplay and escorted Homura’s English voice actor, Christina Vee, on stage for the official panel. There were other cosplayers helping out, which included Mami, Madoka, and Sayaka cosplayers! We then got to help out with the voice actor autograph panel. Afterward, I was able to get my new Kyubey plush signed by the voice actors! Following the autograph panel, we also got to chat on the Crunchyroll live stream and support the voice actors while they were interviewed for the Crunchyroll live stream. It was such a great experience and I’d love to help with a promotion again in the future!

Anime Crossroads 2011

I attended the fourth annual Anime Crossroads in Indianapolis, which was held on December 16-18. I debuted my Transformation Panty costume and entered it in the masquerade. For me, this was definitely a con to remember. I was really impressed by the talent that was featured during the costume contest. Most entrants were considered novices, including myself, but many still exhibited excellent craftsmanship even for beginners. My costume received runner-up in the novice division! I was beaten by a very well put together Dead Master cosplayer, whom I stood next to and chatted with in line. She was a very sweet person and I am happy she won!

Venture Party at Dragon*Con 2011

The Venture Party (sponsored by the Venture Bros. Blog) took place at the Marriott Pulse Bar and Lounge. Attendees got to meet other Venture Bros. fans, take photos with and get autographs from Doc Hammer and James Urbaniak, and compete in a costume contest for prizes!

One of my highlights from Dragon*Con was attending the Venture Party following the Venture Bros. panel. Ben and I met a lot of really awesome people and fans of Venture Bros. and saw a ton of great costumes. Doc Hammer and James Urbaniak eventually showed up to the party, signed autographs and took pictures with the fans. They even hopped in for a big group photo with all the Venture Bros. cosplayers.

After Doc and James left, a costume contest was held and winners were rewarded with autographed prizes! I was one of the group of 20 finalists that were selected for the costume contest, and although I didn’t win any prizes, I still had a lot of fun. The Venture Party is definitely something I will look forward to next year and I know I’ll be working hard on a costume just for the occasion.

Here’s video from part of the contest (I make my entrance at around 2:35):

Dragon*Con 2011

During Labor Day weekend, Ben and I flew down to Atlanta to attend our first Dragon*Con: “the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!”  I had heard a lot of good things about this convention and even watched the documentary about it, so I had pretty high expectations for our experience. I was not disappointed and I’m so glad we went! There were so many people, panels, and events! It’s definitely a convention I’d like to attend again.

Compared to this past Anime Central, our registration experience went much smoother. Our flight arrived in Atlanta Friday evening and we immediately went to pick up our badges. We made it to registration about 5 minutes before they closed for the evening and there was no line! We were so thankful we didn’t have to wait hours in line Saturday morning; instead we got up early and found a good spot for the parade. I was very tempted to join the Venture Bros. group in the parade, but since it was our first year, I decided to watch. The parade was a fun way to see all the amazing costumes Dragon*Con had to offer. Ben and I then checked out some panels and I attended the DC Comics photoshoot as Black Canary in the afternoon. The evening was spent at the Georgia Aquarium.

On Sunday morning, Ben and checked out the vendor booths and then got our picture taken with Tom Felton. Then I changed into my Triana Orpheus costume and got in line for the Venture Bros. panel! After a great panel, Ben and I head to the Pulse Loft to chat with fellow Venture Bros. fans at the Venture Party hosted by Marc from the Venture Bros. Blog. I’ll talk more about that in a later post.
