Working with Aniplex and American Cosplay Paradise at Anime Central 2012

No Comments 34 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!

Commissioned: Samus Aran Emergency Pistol

Samus is one of my absolute favorite female video game characters and once I saw the new Max Factory figure I knew it was to time to put together one of my dream cosplays. I also knew that if I wanted this costume to look nothing short of amazing, then I had to find some awesome people to help me do it.

One of those people is David from 2StoryProps. He is making her Emergency Pistol and thigh holster for me, and so far he’s doing a fantastic job! Here is a photo from his Flickr page that shows some of his progress so far. He surprised me by adding a LED light that works when you pull the trigger — how awesome is THAT?! I can’t wait to see the finished product. To keep an eye on his progress on this project, check out his Flickr album.

Anime Crossroads 2011

No Comments 46 Views0

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):
