PostSubject: reasons why you go to conventions and why cosplay?   Thu May 14, 2009 9:22 pm

as the title says itself... do you have any reasons why you go to conventions?
are you into cosplaying? why cosplaying?
why spend on tickets, souvenirs, costume, ball-joint-dolls or dollfie ( Mad so expensive, hayz cant afford), action figures, cards, cd and dvd, manga and so on...?
why going to convensions? confused

affraid



-----------------------------------------------------------------------
ill start mine! bounce
conventions i think were i can express more of myself and here i can also meet other people with the same interest!
i can do anything to myself, either anime fanatic on anime items accessories or clothes, panic buying ( Suspect haha) anime stuff or busy taking a shot of my fave cosplayer. and gothic clothing is common in events! (people are looking weird at me when then see me in my gothic style, even on just my contact lens! (my reading glasses) )

why spend? i love souvenirs! not all anime and manga you can dowload on net...or somethimes i get impatient in downloading, thats why i buy the complete series! heheh in example, the manga scans of petshop of horror is somewhat rare ( Suspect ) or incomplete in net when i first saw it, so i waited to the next con (convention) then i bought in mango x manga the complete manga scans (without asking the price first hehe).

im despirate to have ball joint dolls.... Sad i cant afford those cute dolls...even only its head or eye...
as now im reviving my barbie dolls, good thing i still have one with long blonde and cute one, and still in condition. (i forgot i got alot of them hehehe) making her gothic lolita doll!

why cosplay? i love to sew!! handstitch of course! i dont have any sewing machines and i dont recommend those stapler looking handy sewing machine...pls invest on the real one if you are really dedicated...
and i love to design for me and for my friends... i want to see my creations being modeled by my friends or anybody who appreciate my talent. cheers


sorry for the long message heheh kinda boring to read if an article is long right? hhehe lol!

Why go? Oh my, I really don't have anything to say here I guess?

I go to Anime Events just to meet and see new awesome people. I take pictures and stuff. Actualy, nung first time ko pumuntang cons I just take picture of cosplayers, not buying anything nor even going inside the event itself XD

Now, I even let myself starve to death just to save up money for the future events XD

It feels awesome to be looked at while wearing a costume (lolita, goth, cosplay costume etc.)
Some laugh at me and some just stare~ XD it's the kind of creepy awesome feeling.

The reason why I go is to meet new and interesting people....
Back when i was living in Australia it was hard to find a group...even a small group of anime lovers...So yea i kept my love of anime & manga to myself most of my high school years.

I was surprised when i moved here in the Philippines, there are many enthusiasts and fanatics alike. So its a big sigh of relief for me, meeting people that have the same interests. n_n

Mo atashi!!..

I join Conventions coz:

Not even an Oz of Otaku blood runs through my Friends' nerves..

It's kinda' sad.. though.. having a hard time promoting Otaku-ism at our place..

where they all think reality is more interesting.. And Anime is'nt Reality.. T_T Huhu..

I enjoy Cons a lot coz' i get a chance to mingle with my Otaku friends from the Net..

Such as Yourselves.. Tee hee..

I love Cosplaying too.. For Me, Cosplaying is the final step to Otaku-ism..

It shows how the Character affects your life.. Your Values, Morals, etc.

They're like Idols/ Role model for those who watch them..

I'm happy Cosplaying.. Meeting fellow Otakus, Playing Yu-Gi-Oh!..


Buying Collectibles at Cons is definitely a must.. for me..

It's like a Memento of the Said event..

After years, Time may pass, Seasons will change, we'll grow old..

But that memento I bought at that certain Con, will live through years and will remind me of the things that happened that day.. (^^,) ~How Dramatic.. (T_T) ~Huhu..

Why watch animes? Repeat the Oath once more and you'll know..

Why Anime?

I once said to my mom.. "Ma! I might as well dig myself into Animes rather than Drugs.." ~Aun! After that..

Siya na mismo nagse-sew ng Costume koh.. Hahaha..

I repeat.. "I choose Anime rather than Drugs"
