Abraham Lincoln here to say...

Post by Sunset Hero » Sun May 26, 2013 2:43 pm

It took me a bit to decide which forum to put this one, since it's also to the convention staff as well as my fellow convention goers, it could go here or the General Questions section. I decided to put it here, because it's also tied directly to the 2013 Anime Boston, and the memories I will never forget.

I wanted to say this in person to the staff in the Masquerade HQ, but I was shooed out by a phone call. But now, I can tell them this, as well as to every single person who saw me, every awesome son of a gun that I high-fived in the Masquerade line, to everyone who took a photo of me, and let me take a photo of them in turn, I have the following to say:

From the deepest reaches of my heart, thank you so much for letting me play a dead President in, not one, but TWO Cosplay games! And thank you so very much for the impossibly warm receptions for the first Cosplay event and Cosplay I've ever done! My time with the Top Hat will never leave me, and I am eternal grateful to each and every one of you for the opportunity!

And I'm going to make damned sure to get the awesome photos I took on this Forum as soon as I can!

Now I've got over 300 days to come up with something to top it... I welcome the challenge.

I just wanna say you totally stole the show in the Afterdark Dating Game. That was the most perfect thing ever, seriously. Props for being amazing!!

Haha, I was the bachelorette who chose you in the dating game! Who says vampires and vampire hunters can't get along?

No, but seriously, you were so funny and your costume was great! I look forward to whatever you come up with next year, as I will probably enter the cosplay events again myself!

you were awesome!! In my opinion it was a nice change of cosplay from what I'm used to seeing. Very, very wonderful job sir!

Also I just wanted to say we shared an elevator in the sheraton. I believed we dubbed it as the "haunted elevator" since it kept stopping on each floor on the way down.

It's the adoration like this before, during, and after the performance that had to get a thanks out of me. All my fears, anxiety, verbal dyslexia, all replaced with, "I'm going to have as much fun with this as possible."

It didn't help that the audience probably wouldn't have let you pick anyone else XP. But yeah, Ash was giving your intro, and I couldn't actually see you then, but it sounded familiar. It was the same one you had for the Death Battle. As soon as I made that realization I was losing it in my chair.

You were freaking amazing! I also got a few pictures with Kakashi also that I can't wait to share.

Dude, I love you. I got a few pictures taken with my camera as well, but they're not even half as good as the one you just posted. Thank you so much!

I've been browsing Youtube and checking out the video topic for the Afterdark Dating game. They had two cameras set up, one of which looked very professional. I personally can't wait to see it. Especially the Obama part. No joke, I didn't see that cutout move at all! Damn near made me jump out of my chair.

Oh, heya Abe~ This is the Kurumu (schoolgirl with blue hair and the tail) from around the con. You did a good job! Very on the mark in the events and you kept the costume looking very crisp. I hope the axe managed to stay together after that little patchup!

So I hope you show up next year, and who knows- maybe even other cons!

No problem. I'm the one in the photo with the pistol wearing glasses.
