Haven’t posted lately since the past two weeks have been kind of crazy.

First, Anime Boston happened. Almost got on the wrong bus going there since my brother insisted on taking Bolt rather than the Chinatown bus which we usually do for Boston. We had tickets for 11AM and got there with less than 10 minutes to spare since we were stuck in midtown traffic; not wanting to miss the bus, we ran over and put the luggage on but it turns out it was the bus to Philly and the Boston bus hadn’t even arrived yet! So, we got the luggage off and then our bus finally showed up at 11 and started 10 minutes late.

I had fun at the con though. Actually made it to a couple of panels this time and was in cosplay chess as Ryuuren. The chess theme was Magic vs. Science so I was on the magic side although I doubt many knew why considering Ryuuren’s powers are only hinted at in the anime and the big revelation doesn’t come until the light novels that go beyond the anime. ^_^; novel spoilers for the curious ) Of course, I had terrible flute music as my attack since the con’s theme was music. XD But I ended up being the first one off the board this year so I didn’t actually get to capture anyone. I haven’t had time to watch it yet but the whole chess match is up on YouTube; I’m introduced around 21:45 and get killed off around 29:00.



Didn’t do any photoshoots (unless a couple of trips to the photo suite count) so no photo post for AB. I’ve only put up one pic of the new Ryuuren costume on ACP so far since I improved on the hair a lot after AB and want to wait for newer photos.

Got home from Boston, unpacked, and then packed this different set of costumes for Costume Con the next weekend:

In the few days that I was home, I also made a new pair of pants for the second Ryuuren costume so more of the design on the boots would show. (They were supposed to be shorter than the pants with the first costume but I didn’t have time to make new ones before Boston.) And I figured out how to better do the hair for that costume so the bangs are no longer so flat and the high ponytail doesn’t slip behind my head. Didn’t have time to add the rest of the red cords that hang from the sash though; I might just redo the whole sash and put a heavy interfacing inside so it can better support the weight.

Costume Con was fun. Caught up with some friends I hadn’t seen in ages, went to a whole bunch of panels, saw some awesome costumes, and took lots of pics. Even found some Monkey Island and Saiunkoku fans to chat with! :-D Don’t really have any pics of myself from the con but don’t really care since I mostly wore old costumes. It had been so long since I’d worn my formal Terra (last time was Anime North 2007), I couldn’t even remember for sure which side the scarves were supposed to tie on! ^_^;;

Saiunkoku pictures with the cherry blossoms finally happened and I’ve spent the last few days catching up on things although I’m still behind on online stuff. Went shopping Friday and got chocolate for my mother for Mother’s Day. And I just bought fabric and beads for a new costume which will hopefully be done for AnimeNext. ^_^;
