Re: Cosplays That I’ve Done (2011-2017)

Standard

So I just finished a really quick fan fiction project recently called Last Waifu Standing. You can read the entire anthology here.

Having said that, there was one section of the series that I really liked (which will probably be the first one I do quick revisions on, because I want it to be perfect), and that’s the two-part arc on “Cosplay OTP.” The premise of those chapters were that I would revisit past cosplays that I have done, roleplay the character I portrayed, and attempt to woo the character’s other half of the One True Pair fall in love with me. Spoiler: they end up giving me thoughtful advice that I may or may not take instead.

Although this was my favorite part to write, something was nagging me: unless you peruse my blog well enough, you wouldn’t have known that I did any of these cosplays! I’ll admit that I do cosplay just for fun, and wear them as conversation pieces to curious fans. But if I must draw attention to myself somehow, I might as well bring these up.

So without further ado, I will showcase each one that was featured in the ‘fic (and then some) right here. Right now!

Anime Review: RE:Hamatora

Standard

About two years ago, I reviewed Hamatora’s first season in preparation for the second season that aired soon after. Several seasons and conventions later, I’m finally getting around to talk about that sequel! And it’s about time, because my Ratio cosplay is slowly becoming less recognizable, seeing how I might be planning to wear it again… for the third time!

Eagle Con Cosplay

Harley Quinn (cosplayer: Lando Clarissian) and I, hanging out at Cal State LA Eagle Con 2016!

With the anime and manga officially complete, I think it’s time for me to revive this recent gem, in case you missed it. But this time, I do suggest that you read my first review or just complete the series before reading on. There will be SPOILERS!

Funny Moments in Summer 2014 Anime

Standard

As the summer season of anime is wrapping up, I decided to just go ahead and post this. Why? Because on my personal Facebook page, I collected and documented over 2,000 screenshots of 26 shows I had watched for this entire season! And because I need to practice [some] restraint, I’ve limited my selections on what to share here!

And seeing that in seasons past, my “Great Moments” in anime highlights are all heavily “feel” types, I decided to compile a short list of the funnier moments as well. Click on the following link for the Great Moments in Summer 2014 Anime.

Disclaimer: as a reviewer of the less highly anticipated and otherwise “bad” anime, these compilations do not include [some] of the most hyped shows of the season.

As always, there will be SPOILERS!
