    Ahh, you can't talk about anime without going into conventions and cosplaying at some point. So has anyone been to one? Or is anyone planning to go in the future? What about cosplays?

    I'm going to go to ACen (Anime Central) this May. Its in the Chicago area, for those of you who don't know. If I can finish the costume in time, I'm planning on cosplaying Enju from Alichino. The pic isn't the best, but it shows the costume ok. Edit: that's a guy, by the way. Just so you know.

    We've got 'em all over the place here. Never more than once a year in a particular city, but they are all over. The biggest in the world is actually in the US, not Japan. ACen, which is the one I'm attending, is one of the bigger ones. One more week! So excited. . .

    Unfortunatly, I didn't have time to do the cosplay I had planned, so I'm doing a much simpler/easy to make one. I will definitely post pics!

    Yeah, so I finally got around to uploading my pics from ACen to my photobucket account. I have so many Bleach, Naruto, and FMA because my friends were participating in the group shots. All of the pics of me in there are crap, so ignore them. I wasn't very photogenic that weekend I guess.

    anyway, here ya go

    Hot guys with Wings? They look like the came straight out of a shoujo manga/anime :S

    Oh, and I see you met a little jpop band aswell :p

    If you hadn't noticed I happen to be female Female=shoujo, so why shouldn't I be interested? Just because I like "good" anime doesn't mean I can't like girly stuff too. And the band is more j-rock than j-pop, its hard to describe. They're kind of j-everything, actually.

    And Yeah, I know him, he's from my uni's anime club. Not the best cosplay. . .

    Being from Canada means no conventions for me unless you live in Toronto or Montreal. One of those two has a convention I'm not sure which one and it doesn't matter since I don't live anywhere near either.

    I'm not into yaoi, actually, just the guys themselves.

    And never! fangirls, by definition, squee upon encountering their favorite characters, and the only time I have ever squee'd in my life was when I was accepted into my uni. I just happen to enjoy looking at pretty things.

    And I'm amazed you know the band, none of my friends had heard of them.
