Day One of Anime Expo
Yesterday was the first day of Anime Expo 2015 and so far, I am impressed by the countless cosplayers. If no one saw, I cosplayed myself as Chitoge from the new anime series, “Nisekoi” (my current favorite!). As I entered the South Hall, I did not realize how popular my character I chose to cosplay was. I would have random people shout, “CHITOGE!” which was very amusing and funny. Everyone was so excited and vibrant from all the positive energy. Another great vibe from the convention I noticed was the friendliness from people you do not see regularly in Los Angeles.
There were countless cosplayers that I was very excited to see. There was a Sailor Moon group (YouTube video coming soon), Dragon Ball group, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII, Parasyte, Nisekoi, Full Metal Alchemist, High School of the Dead, characters from various Miyazaki Hayao films, and so much more. I am sure that if I kept going, the list would take up the whole post (lol)!
I went to the convention by myself and was actually roaming around for a few hours taking videos, pictures, and attending panels and events. For those of you who plan to attend, I recommend purchasing wifi from the Los Angeles Convention Center since there are so many dead zones. I couldn’t make calls, texts, or post anything online. So instead, I took my time to just enjoy myself and the environment (besides, I kept getting stopped to take pictures for my costume). I ran into so many old friends from high school to college so it was nice to just regularly converse and catch up on things without using smart phones.
Another person I was happy to run into is Nicadmous. He is one of my favorite supporters and is very kind. We ran into each other over at the Anime Karaoke event. We took pictures, talked about some anime, and Nylon Pink.
ANYONE GOING TODAY OR TOMORROW? Let me know either in the comment box or through my social media:
If you somehow cannot go, take a peek of the convention through my eyes on my live streaming profile on Periscope. My Periscope username is
