Well~ that went by quite fast. Another Anime North has come and gone....I still don't quite feel like it's done, yet it is! <
It was great seeing everyone again from last year, and also meeting new people ~!
Last year I was Chibitalia, this year I'm Houzuki from Natsume Yuujinchou...there wasn't a lot of people who are familiar with this series. Still, it is very light and gives a good feeling
The sad part is that my horns were not con-proof, and quickly broke on the first day of my wearing it...still, it was a good run. Rest in peace, my valiant mask. You have gone down bravely...*salutes*
Anyhow, the N.Y Photoshoot was great~!
I got to meet people who were into Natsume Yuujinchou as well, so that made me happy~ :3
The thing that surprised me the most: I bought more doujins and fanworks than official stuff...I think the only official things I bought (aside from the manga) was the Nyanko-sensei plush and three Royal Cafe bears. :3 Love them furry things <3
The Lolita Tea Party: My first year going to it...it's quite a different scenario. Normal cosplay relies on the conventions within the anime/manga and the fact that teh people gathered with you understand them. However, with the Lolita tea party, there isn't a story to work with...and there were also many of the genres present. I chatted with them (most of those I sat with were quiet)~ and it was a pleasant afternoon~!
