Animethon 21

Hi everyone! I've been missing in action from my blog and my social media networks for quite awhile because of Animethon, which occurred in August 8, 9, and 10! I used to love blogging and reading blogs and all that (I still do, don't get me wrong), but after Animethon I feel like I shouldn't be sucked inside the virtual world.. ahh. I'll be back in shape soon, though, so don't worry.

Anyway.. Animethon 21 was really enjoyable this year; it was my second time attending Animethon and it felt like I enjoyed it more than last year as I was able to get some hotel rooms booked with my friends in the university residence! (Therefore we could party all night and just walk to get back home after the late night events! :P) Anyway, I do have to admit that one of the best things about Animethon is again, volunteering!! I was one of the people responsible for registering the customers~ woohoo! I love greeting people and making them feel warm and happy inside- plus, it was really fun to get productive and efficient to shorten up the line!! Yay~ I hope the people didn't feel frustrated as last year (there was a super long line last year when I was volunteering.. gosh...)!

Spot me working at the Registration Desk! It was so fun greeting people and welcoming them to Animethon :-) 
I got a looooong line of customers! :D 

Next, I just wore a kimono outfit for the 1st day- a kimono, lace up socks, sandals, and a purple wig!

Ah.. ha.. ha.. I laugh at my horrible photo-editing skills! >"< please forgive me~ the old background was not nice at all so this is still better than the last one... 
For the second day, I cosplayed as Kuroko from Kuroko's Basketball (I managed to finish watching the first season before Animethon to get a feel of his cool personality, haha). Yepp... Kuroko is a guy. I was so delighted this year as lots of people wanted to get pictures of me~ yay, I can finally join the bandwagon of cosplay celebrities!! Haha, jk! :-)

My friend got these pictures as I was posing for another like 2 or 3 cameras who asked to get pictures of me.. so that's why I'm not looking at the camera! 

Kuroko (me) and Ryuko Matoi (one of my friends) <3 

Me and my friends went to more events than last year.. such as a film, a game, a panel with introduction to voice-acting, Masquerade Ball, An Cafe's concert, Magistima Saga's concert, Yukino 's Guest Autograph, and of course, must visit the vendor's hall and Artists' Alley for sure! Volunteers also got free food provided this year, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner.. I wouldn't say the food is the best, but it's edible and still fulfills a meal, although me and friends do go to other restaurants for more bites! :)

Here's my haul from Animethon!!

I restocked up on my posters, got a few postcards to send to friends, a puzzle, and a wall scroll! :') plus an Animethon pin~ I think I only spent $50-60 this year because I actually thought a lot before purchasing, instead of randomly splurging whenever I felt like it, haha. 


Now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever said I am near-sighted? Here's me and my friends, just sitting on the ground, waiting for the line up to watch the Talent Show (with An Cafe as the judges)! Exploited- my nerdy glasses- GAH! P.S., we tend to wear casual clothes on Sunday (last and 3rd day of Animethon) because it's our shopping day and there are less events :')

Well, that's it for this post! :D Have you ever been to an anime convention?? 

Until next time~



  1. You look very nice in your cosplay, for years I'm not going to an anime convention and I feel good about that, but I would not go alone.

  2. We're actually having a convention right now! I didn't get tickets in time though :(
    Unique Jewelry/Decor Giveaway!

  3. Is that 'Kurokonobasuke''??

  4. Wow! I haven't talked to you in such a long this will be a huge comment :P
    1. I've never been suupper into Anime like you are but I do love my movies like Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service and I used to love watching Sailor Moon as a girl. It does look like a great experience and going in costume must be so much fun! Like it sounds like yours was a huge hit :) I'm glad you and your friends had a great time.
    2. Your floral kimono outfit is honestly so pretty! It's fun how you created two different ways because they are both so pretty. I need to get me a kimono because they've been getting really popular lately. And your floral crown is gorgeous. It might even inspire me to get off my butt and make my own. I've been meaning to all summer.
    3. Your skirt blouse outfit is also beautiful! I love how you paired two different patterns together and making it a chic outfit. Congrats on your drivers test! When I took mine, I had to do it 3 times but I finally passed. I swear, I'm a good driver, I just got really stressed out. Having a license definitely made my life like 10 times easier :) Also! I love your new hair cut! It is honestly so cute and daring. I love my long hair/ scared to cut it off. You make a hair cut seem like such a great idea though.
    4. And your last outfit here is just so cute! I love the lace top-I have something like it in hot pink. And I love how you paired it with your floral crown :)
    Hope everything is well for you! Excited for college?! Keep in touch:)

  5. Great cosplay! I always love it when a girl cosplays a young guy character. And you did a great job!

They feel so comfortable and they're awesome for summer!! :D I actually didn't take the driver's test yet but I'm planning to soon (maybe next year .. sigh). Haha.. I do sort of miss my long hair.. I'll just have to wait for it to grow out :3 keep in touch and thank you for your always good wishes and sweet comments :") they just make my day. Keep in touch!!
