What I'm Cosplaying @AX2015

Hey Guys,

The beginning of this year was crazy but I'm glad it's finally time to sort of sit back and relax a little but as you know and I know with my last post their is lot to do every summer here in the Golden State. Today, I'm going to be talking AX and what I'll be cosplaying there for the Fourth of July weekend. Oh my Meirin or Hong Meiling costume is basically falling apart and I really love cosplaying her so, I might have to find a replacement for her and I wish there was more background on her but she was or still a fan favorite. But since my mom has a vintage sewing machine that has had some maintenance done it so, probably I can learn how use it so make Meiling 2.0.  If your cosplaying a new or less represented Touhou character and are attending AX /Touhou con please tag me on Instagram I would love to see your beloved character. Also, I don't know if I told you guys but I've lost significant amount of weight and I'm able to fit into my Bodyline outfits so I'm really happy about that. As far as anime watching goes right now I'm watching Sailor Moon Crystal and playing catch up with Gurren Lagann and realized all roads lead to Gainix as far as watching these days.

 Cirlce lens from Lensvillage; reviews coming up. 




Moving on, so, the first character I really wanted to cosplay is Super Sonico. Last year, I watched the Anime Super-Ani and also able to meet Mr. Gen and Mr. Kosaka of Nitro-plus.  I wiki'd the show it had my favorite English voice Actors and if your wondering who is my all time favorite voice actor well it's Luci Christian (i.e. the voice of Milk chan, Kaname Chidori, and Kodacho) so, I might watch it again just to hear her voice again since all I've been watching anime in just straight up Japanese with subs these days. But I'm really excited to finally cosplay her and really happy that Jessica Nigri voice acted and cosplayed her and the funny thing is I see Jessica almost every year multiple times running around con and she is amazing cosplayer but I had no clue how big her name is in the cosplay community.




Anyways, on to the next character. You're probably familiar with this next one because of the writer behind these manga and anime that came before it was such a huge hit to fans of gore and the supernatural. Well, this story came out six years later. Can you guess it?... I will be cosplaying Brynhildr in the Darkness' Neko Kuroha.  Lynn Okamoto has created a genre of "neo gore" because it's not like what we've seen in previous decades where motives/intent were questioned on a life and death situation in Anime. I really like the opening songs for this show I just wish he continued the manga. And what is with shows only having 13 episodes these days and  also look at the dramas at least have two seasons done.









This leads me to my next cosplay character, who is from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun or Monthly Girl Nozaki-kun. Yes, a slice life anime with a hint of cute unadulterated senpai notice me complex, and if there is next season there better be a good story line that has feels of His and Her Circumstance or Kare Kano but this anime right her has to be one my favorite type of senpai notice me of 2014/15 the rest of the over top anime out like this today is just a hot mess. I kind of miss the basic slice of life anime. Anyways, I'll be cosplaying Chiyo Sakura.

One more thing I forgot to add to this post but I'm really happy to IA performing at AX because out vocaliod her and Luka have best voices and I wish would they upgrade IA because she would sound amazing with an English voice bank. I know I don't talk much about Vocaliod but I would do huge binges on YT, that's how I found out about Touhou or upcoming games like Kingdom Hearts or popular anime shows at the time. I wasn't huge into Miku even though I like her blue toned attire I cringe when she sings in English.

  1. I've only watched Monthly Girl Nozaki-kun from your cosplay list and I love how hard she tries, but Nozaki doesn't have a clue LOL. Her bows are also really cute to me, I think they'll look nice on you =) I can't wait to see pictures of you cosplaying all 3, I hope to go to AWA in Atlanta for my birthday in September~
