Another Anime Boston has come and gone!!! This has been my 3rd year at this convention and it couldn't have been better XD
My pre-con week was jam packed with "HOLY CRAP MY COSPLAYS STILL AREN'T FINISHED D'X " Typical me to procrastinate and it took me all the way up to midnight on Thursday to get stuff done and only one of my cosplays were finished -_- and of course I got sick with a waterfall of snot coming out of my nose and almost no voice. Being sick has become a con tradition for me at this point.
Despite being sick and many a cosplay not getting done I threw on my Rainbow Dash and trooped out the door. We left at about 10 something because my brothers girlfriend had a doctors appointment. We parked, got our badges and headed down to the first panel of the weekend: Greg Man Wonderland. Gregs one of my favorite voice actors and its always awesome to see him at conventions. We got there Kind of late and ended up sitting way in the back. We then left the room and went right back in the same room for Bryce Papenbrooks panel! This incredibly sweet man made my childhood as Jack Russel in Radiata Stories. Radiata Stories is my favorite Rpg game and I have been playing it ever since it came out in 2005, 8 years ago. I wish I could have told him all of that. The panel didn't really have a lot of people but that was perfectly fine with me because we all got to take pictures with him He even said he liked my cosplay!!! XD Then we met up with my friends and went out to eat at Unos which had the best chicken "thumbs" (Still think thats wierd o.o) EVER!!!!!!! After that they went on there way and my group went to Anime Unscripted. Always a must go to or any convention they're at they never fail to make me laugh till I collapse on the floor XD I got really worried though because they brought out the first three contestants and I was like where the hell are the Ayres brothers but then they announced Chris and I was relieved. I still wonder why Greg didn't do it too though. and after that we went back home to get mah fwiend Court. (Oh yeah we went to the dealers room for a bit after eating and before anime unscripted. I GOT THE ONE RING!!!!!!!!!!!! When I saw that ring I knew I had to have it my inner lotr fangirl came exploding out i'm gonna put in on a chain and start calling myself Frodo >
I got a brass One Piece necklace too since I lost the pendant on the one I got last year)
Saturday I just threw on my converse, leather leggings, fandom shirt, and my Roxas wig and called myself fanboy Roxas lol. (I had Roxel on the back too XD ) we got there around 11 again and hit up the dealers room I ended up buying a SHINee dream girl poster, an eevee key chain, a luffy key chain, a chopper plush, a super adorable roxas and sora halloweentown print, and a light up Link shirt from electro flash media.
After that we went to Bryce Papenbrooks autograph session where he signed my Radiata stories game XD I don't think I've ever been so nervous before and once again I failed at speaking After that we went to the It Gets Better panel. I think everyone should go to this panel even if you don't get bullied yourself like me. Its incredibly insightful and teaches you as a victim or bystander be able to keep your head up high and deal with the situation in a positive way because true to the panel name It does get better. We then went out to the California pizza grill place in the mall and went to wait in the masquerade line which wrapped around most of the floor. There was so many people going around the line giving high fives. I would say more but it would be too much XD Bottom line the masquerade was awesome as always and this time I got to stay the whole time XD
Sunday we went up there at about 10-11. Hit up the dealers room again and got a adorable Sanji keychain and a kingdom hearts blanket. Went to the your fandom sucks panel and went home with lots of memories.
I got my picture taken alot as Rainbow Dash on Friday and at some point I got a traveling soot spirte which I passed on on saturday.
aaannnnnndddd..... THAT WAS MY WEEKEND.
I cannot wait until 2014 I have many elaborate cosplays planned since I didn't get to do much this time around (Only 1 and a half) and I'm hoping to enter the masquerade myself XD
So Goodye Anime Boston and see you next year!!!!!!!!!!!
