Anime Expo 2014 Report

It’s been a while since I wrote a con report! Let’s get to it!

I had the honor this year to be a Cosplay Senpai Guest for Anime Expo.  I had a table in the entertainment hall where I got to see lots of great costumes and meet equality awesome people!  The entertainment hall was really the highlight of the con for me.  Not only did I get a great location to see lots of cosplays, but the cosplay photo sets were stellar!  I even used them myself to take a few photos.  :)

Even though I was stuck at a table for most of the con (such is the life of booth work) I tired to make the best of the con by taking silly photos, per norm.  Luckily I had my friend Lady Staba accompany me and help work the booth.  Thanks Staba! I couldn’t have done it without you.  Here’s a photo of us as Classic versions of Moon and Jupiter.

Princess Serenity DERP made an appearance too!  I had this really sweet girls visit my table and give me this BEAUTIFUL piece of art.  Thank you ladies!

Linda Le (Vampy Bit Me) was at the table right next to me so of course we had to get photos.  My friend brought his ClapTrap so naturally I dressed him up0 as Sailor Moon since this was Sailor Moon Con.  LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I PRESENT SAILOR WUBWUB!!!

Siren Fist bump three way!! Plus look I found a classic Roland while I was wearing classic Lilith!!

The rest of the con was Sailor Moon con for me.  With the re-release of classic Sailor Moon and the premier of Sailor Moon Crystal there were lots of Sailor Moon cosplays and shenanigans!  I was very lucky to get to share this with lots of my friends that I made from Sailor Moon cosplay.  These girls mean so much to me!  Now on to rain fluffy butts!
