Well the con year is beginning again, and while the first con is still a while away, I might as well post a list of my cosplay plans and convention plans. (please note that these may change as the year goes on)
First up, some cosplay announcements! This year is actually going to be a pretty big cosplay year for me. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like my Liger Zero reboot will make it this year, but I have two other pretty cool cosplays I'm excited about. The first one I've already begun, and have posted 2 WIPs for. And that is Melia Antiqua
from Xenoblade: Chronicles. Xenoblade was easily one of the best games I have ever played, and Melia my favorite character. The next is a cosplay I recently decided to do, because of the group I am going with. It will be a group cosplay, Batman characters in fancy attire. I will be going as Fancy Fem!Robin. Here is the pattern I will be using: Simplicity 2207
. Now, I only have the pattern for this one, as this was literally decided upon today that I will join the group cosplay, but I am excited because a group cosplay sounds like a lot of fun. I've only kinda did one before with the Zoids group at Anime Expo, but it was really more of a meetup. So in short, the two new cosplays debuting this year will Melia Antiqua from Xenoblade: Chronicles, and Fancy Fem!Robin.
Now, onto the conventions I will be attending:
WonderCon 2014: April 18th-20th
Long Beach Comic Expo: May 31st- June 1st
Anime Expo 2014: July 3rd-6th
Comikaze Expo (To be announced)
There certainly are a lot of conventions in Southern California, aren't there? Anyways, Cosplay schedules are to be announced, as most of it depends on the rest of the group I am going with. Though, for most conventions I will be going as Teto Kasane, an easy wear costume, for the first day (the day I possibly have to wait in line, and the day I want to actually look at stuff). I would like to go as Melia Antiqua on Saturday for Anime Expo, as that is the most popular day, and the day with the most cosplays. But, we'll have to see what happens.
Looking forward to all the conventions in the future, and hoping to get all my cosplays done by Wondercon! If you are going to any of these conventions, let me know!
