Sword Art Online girls are awesome =3
Yes there is sorta a story to this. Jasmine (Asuna on the right) is super friendly and nice and always tried to make friends with other SAO cosplayers… but other Asunas and Kiritos tended to glare instead of smile and wave. I’m not sure what it is but…. unlike other series where you run to people who are part of it… for SAO it wasn’t the same. I was confused but I could kinda see why at the same time (SO MANY OF US!) But somehow we made friends with our look-alikes and found a cute little Silica on Day 4! We also have a few pictures with other SAO people (trying to make friends T.T) but some of them just look awkward >.>
Anyways. It’s me on the left, Katee as Silica, Heather as Lizbeth, and Jasmine as Asuna on the right =3 It was a great team cause we got a lot of pictures today o.o Why? Probably cause there were no guys =P Sorry Kiritos.. you guys were just everywhere…
But yes. onto some pictures from Day 4!! Which honestly had more cospalys than expected….
AHHH We were SO happy we were able to get this picture (we also apologize to the Ed and Al who seemed like they were in a rush and the Al suffering from being in that metal suit… we cause more pictures. sorry.) But really, super awesome cosplays =3 Can’t believe they were in the masquerade, it was SUPER awesome. I really want to do a FMA x SAO mash now…. >.>;; Can you say fight scene? =3
Oddly enough.. probably the best cosplay of her I’ve seen. The name escapes me but… It’s really nicely done. =3
Inori Cosplay =3 There were quite a few but I thought I’d take a picture of one when I got the chance =3
Not sure where she’s from either but… It looks really nice! I know when to appreciate good looking work =3
Isn’t this what anime is all about? Seemingly innocent school looking girls with mecha weapons =3 Yea. That’s it. xDD
A really nice Irelia from League of Legends! Look at her weapon.. LOOK AT IT! How nice does that look?!
Gonna keep the picture post shorter since I didn’t that that many anyways. Once again, Full album here! Password: Cosplay
Overall I think Anime Expo 2013 was a real success. I loved the extra things they put in especially fan-made panels so it filled the whole schedule nicely. As well as the cosplay photoshoot area which I loved playing around in for photos! I hope that catches on with other cons cause that alone will definitely bring cosplayers back =3 (at least until it gets so massive the crowds deter people….)
I also saw the masquerade this year on youtube and it was 10x better than the past few years just from the looks of skit quality and costumes. But I have to ask… was the theme this year talent? SEems like people loved to dance and show off xP It’s fine of course… it just had a different vibe from past years.
I WISH I saw Alodia.. T.T I missed her!! She’s really such a good cosplayer… I do wish I could be like her (have you seen her closet?!?)
Anyways. That’s it for my AX 13 experience. Maybe next year I’ll see AX from another side (artist alley? More Promotion jobs? Possibly staff member? Who knows~)
