Animecon 2013 - Part 2

This is part two of my Animecon 2013 experience! If you haven’t read part one, go and check it out **HERE**.

Saturday was a lot different than Friday. Not only did I see a lot of familiar faces, but the places was packed with people, really AWESOME cosplayers and activities. It was definitely more crowded and fun.

I arrived with Tatsuya somewhere around 16:00pm and we ate some lunch. After lunch I got dressed up again 〜( ̄▽ ̄〜). See here what I looked like:

I put on my R2D2 dress from Blackmilkclothing. I combined it with my Konoha village headband from Naruto, lol. Over my dress I put on a light blue demin blouse with holes in the shoulders. It was a lot more simple than Friday.

One on the first things we visited was the Manga Kissa. It is like a place where you can read manga, draw and chill.

You could almost find any kind of manga in the shelf. Just name it and it’s there!

Guess who likes to read manga too?

In the Manga Kissa they also sold sweets.

We bought some self-made lollipops. There were flavors like caramel, cherry, mint, rabarber, apple, strawberry etc.. I picked caramel. Caramel tasted a lot more minty (ㄒoㄒ), which I am not a huge fan of. I think the fruity flavored lollipops were better!

On your left cherry, on your right caramel

After visiting the Manga Kissa we explored the rest of the convention. Also on Saturday I filmed a lot more. So I don’t have a lot of pictures again!

Such a pretty picture  I think \(*0*)/. This is a kind of game I always see on anime conventions.

Me and no-face O_O!!! This was absolutely one of the best I saw. Yes, maybe you think it is a pretty simple cosplay….. BUT! He stayed in character. I was already thinking why he wasn't responding to me when I asked if I could take a picture with him. Afterwards I said “Thank you!” and he still didn't respond to me. Then Tatsuya told me to bow to him. Then I got a bow back (人´∀`*). Awesomeness overload!!!

As I said earlier I saw some familiar faces. A lot of schoolmates of mine were visiting the convention also.

My overall experience of Animecon 2013 was a positive one. I had a lot of fun even though I did not spend so much time there. Next year I will really go a full weekend and be well prepared for it.

Oh yeah.. This is what I purchased in the Dealerroom:

The next convention I will be going to is Abunaicon 2013 in Veldhoven. I will be cosplaying at Abunaicon again and I will make it the best costume I have ever made ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ.

My love for cosplay is great and will stay like that forever ヽ(;▽;)ノ! HEHE!

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed it. When I upload the Animecon video’s on my new channel I will definitely let you know here on my blog.

Have an awesome day!

Animecon 2013 - Part 1

About a month ago I went to Animecon 2013. This was the first time I visited the convention. I had quite big expectations from it, being one of the biggest anime conventions in Holland. If you want to know more about Animecon check out their website here: http://www.animecon.nl/

I purchased a weekend-ticket for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but I only visited the convention on Friday and Saturday.

As I told you in **this** post I unfortunately didn't had the time to make a proper cosplay outfit. On the other side I had the opportunity to take pictures and film a lot of cosplayers. I like to film the cosplayers rather than taking pictures of them °)b.

On Friday I went together with Choi and TK. (visit Choi her blogspot: http://li-cai-xia.blogspot.nl/) Both were pretty interested about the convention, but none of them dressed up. TK said he did some cosplay a time ago and Choi wants to make a costume eventually too. 

Before heading to Animecon 2013 we ate some Dim Sum in a Chinese restaurant in The Hague. Delicious way to fill up your tummy and because we ate there we didn't get hungry at the convention, haha  (ω)

There am I.... awkwardly sitting by myself (_).

After stuffing ourselves with goodness we left the restaurant and proceeded our journey towards Animecon 2013. We took the tram nearby the centrum of The Hague and got off at the stop "World Forum". The place where all the magic happens. 

Choi: "Whatcha want? (゜-゜)"..

Choi: "Ohh, hiiii!(◠‿◠)".

After standing in a super long queue, where we probably stood for like an hour, we finally entered the “World Forum” congress building. If you wanna know what that place is like, check it out *HERE*. It is huge!

After getting our convention passes I got changed and grabbed my camera to capture ALL THE COSPLAY ψ(`∇´)ψ!!! 

See below how I was dressed like:

(In the bathroom)

I was a kind of gothic / lolita / hatsune miku / cat.....ヽ(゜Q。)ノ?You be the judge, lol. I got my corset and skirt from a store called "Black Widow" in Rotterdam. My cardigan that glows in the dark is from H&M. Most of the jewelry I have on is from Claire's and my creepers (my shoes) are from New Look. I did not especially bought something for Animecon. I just worked with what I had in my closet.

Meow :3

Here is a picture of me and ditto.... YEAH, DAFUQ! DIGLET! It was such a good and hilarious idea to come up with. Although it looked kind of awkward in some way lololololol.

Moving on.. My thoughts about Friday.. Friday was actually a very boring day. There wasn't much to do or to see. It was also quite empty. It looked like a more relaxing and chill day than an interesting and awesome one, haha. All the big events and activities were planned on Saturday, so that would be one of the main reasons it wasn't that crowded.

For some reason I didn't took so much pictures on Friday. I captured a lot more on film actually. So I can't show you anymore pictures of that day which I made myself. So here ends my Friday experience of Animecon 2013.

On the bright side... I have got some fun news! I am planning to make a new youtube account. A fresh and new start with good quality videos that will be nicely edited(人´∀`*). I am going to use my old account (**THIS ONE**) as an account for random video uploads and random browsing. One of my first video's on my new youtube account will be about Animecon 2013. 

I can't exactly give you a precise date when I will be launching my new youtube account. I want to give it my full focus and plan everything in an organized way. In that way it will result in an up-to-date channel with loads of fun stuff! I'm still thinking of a representative name for it also. We will keep in touch about that, alright? :)

To end this blog entry, here is a picture of me from the NOZLAN photo booth thingy. Here is the link to their website: http://www.nozlan.com/. I always go there to get my picture taken. It is completely free! Nice, right?!

Part 2 of Animecon 2013 will be uploaded soon!

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
