Con Hangover thread

Post by VanceVanhite » Mon Apr 09, 2012 6:37 am

I guess I'll start a thread dedicated to that feeling that I get (hopefully you guys too) after an awesome con...That glorious feeling composed of sadness, happiness, tiredness, nostalgia, and excitement for the next con. Like I said, hopefully I'm not the only one who gets this kind of feeling, haha.

So in order to make this an actual thread rather than just a statement, here's a few questions for you to fill out!

-What was your favorite experience this year?
-Who did you cosplay as?
-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.

For my answers:

-Walking around in my cosplay, getting my picture taken in it a whole bunch, and taking tons of photos of some of my favorite characters. Just going around the general con itself, really.
-Travis Touchdown!
-An even better Travis Touchdown! (Better props, etc--It's the only cosplay I've found that I don't look weird in).
-The masquerade was AWESOME, even though I had to stand the whole time T___T; I also enjoyed the Informal Dance on Friday...when I got there on Saturday it was closed (to keep this thread open, let's just avoid all discussion of the closing/theories out of this thread, please). They had some pretty good DJs this year, though. Really great picks.
EDIT: The AMV contest was freakin' awesome. I couldn't believe that they had a Celldweller song, much less with a Black Lagoon AMV! Really made my day right there, as well as an AFI/Madoka pairing. Seriously, all of the AMVs this year were 11/10.
-I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say this was better than Otakon last year...
If I could rate AB 2012 on a scale from 1-10, it'd be "Pretty Awesome".

What was your favorite experience this year?
well, this was my first anime boston so i'm going to go out on a limb and say everything. i remember when i walked in on friday and just being like, "oh my god," half because i was with "my people" and half because it was just overwhelming (in a good way)! i loved looking at all the cosplays, vendors and the artists in artists alley. there was always something new that i'd see and would fall in love with. i also enjoyed how well my first cosplay went over -- but more on that later. lastly, i loved the lolita panels! they really inspired me to just be myself and not be shy with the fashion that i choose to wear. i went to the she's so unusual panel for lolitas yesterday about loli's in the media and i went to the one on saturday which talked about loli fashion. the presenters were great!

Who did you cosplay as?
nakano azusa AKA azunyan from K-ON! friday/sunday i did a look from the LISTEN! song and saturday i did a casual wear with her pigtails and cat ears. i loved every minute of it even though i wish i wore my main cosplay every day but saturday was SO busy that i'm kind of glad i "blended" in.

Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
i definitely want to do another costume of azusa's from k-on. i'd also like to give it a go as princess daisy but i will be revealing that in october for NYAF. lastly, the final fantasy nerd in me was screaming at all the amazing cosplays so i'm sure i'd pick a character from that and go with it (probably yuna.)

What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
the lolita panels that i mentioned already! i loved, loved, loved those. i also briefly saw the taiko drumming one. i hope they get a bigger room next year. it was so stuffed in there and hard to see but i loved listening to the music while i was able to. next year i plan on going to more of the dances, cosplay chess, etc.

Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
YOU WERE ALL SO FRIENDLY. thank you for making my very first, long overdue con experience an amazing one!

I cosplayed as Double D from Ed Edd N Eddy. My favorite experience this year was spending time with my close friends and making many new friends at the con. I also really enjoyed having my picture taken and being known as "sockhead" and "double d". My favorite event was definitly the Saturday night informal dance. Next year, I think I am going to cosplay as Noodle from the Gorillaz. Also, if anyone got any good pictures of me, please send them to me :). In my opinion, this was the best Anime Boston ever :D

What was your favorite experience this year?
I.... really can't pick. xD


Who did you cosplay as?

Fran from Katekyo Hitman Reborn! and Katsura from Gintama.

Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
My dream cosplay would be the Galactic Merchant Fleet Robot Kaien. Or Makoto, Gintoki's centaur disguise. But, I'm lazy, mannnn.

I may continue with the Katsura (with Elizabeth) gig, though we'll probably do Katsuo and Eluigi instead. I just need to find my classic Gameboy so I can pretend it's a twin Famicom or something. And Fran will definitely return with improvements (apple!Fran possibly). VG Gokudera might come back, but for now, he's likely going to be Xanxus instead so he can go more nicely with our Varia group.

What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
We didn't do much except wander around and spend money for most of it. But, I did get to see the concerts, some Gundam Unicorn, Haruhi Suzumiya, and the Gintama panel was amazing.


Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.

I love everyone. Extra love goes to the Gintama group. My Elizabeth mask will be forever pinned to the corkboard in my bedroom.

-What was your favorite experience this year?
Oh my god, waaaaay too many to count. Just this entire weekend was amazing.

-Who did you cosplay as?
Friday I was Xemnas almost the entire day, with a few breaks in between because of that coat @_____@ Saturday, I was Jenova for about half the day, then I changed into Xem for pretty much the entire night. Sunday,I was Xemnas again. Obviously, I have a favorite costume, LMAO. <3

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
Lucrecia Crescent, from FFVII. My boyfriend already has Hojo together from this year with Jenova. I want to be Xem again, with a new wig, and maybe Axel too. And Spirit Albarn from Soul Eater, since we had to cancel that cosplay this year.

-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
We're not really big panel/event goers unless they look really, really interesting. Ask the Live Action KH crew was probably my favorite, it was so entertaining. The Org XIII panel was really, really awesome as well. We went to Kirk Thornton's panel, too, and Caitlin Glass's, both of which were fantastic as well.

-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
Amazing time, I so can't wait for next year.
AB 2012!!
Superior Xemnas (with my Org. XIII group) from Kingdom Hearts
Mother JENOVA (with my Professor Hojo) from Final Fantasy VII
AB 2013!!
Axel {and possibly/probably Xemnas} (with my Saix) from Kingdom Hearts
Lucrecia Crescent (with my Professor Hojo) from FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus
Spirit Albarn (with my Stein) from Soul Eater {extremely tentative}

-What was your favorite experience this year?
Just being there was awesome this year. I've been cosplaying for years now, but this is the first time people have actually stopped and looked my costume over and told me how good it looked. People even asked me how I built my sword and shield, and asked to hold them to see how they were constructed/how heavy they were (I was Link). I got so many pictures taken, both by myself and with my friend, who was dressed as Zelda.

-Who did you cosplay as?
As mentioned above, I was Link. I was trying to go for the Twilight Princess look, but I ran out of time and ended up without chainmail, a proper undershirt, or gloves (and I had no hat for the first half of Friday). And yet people still told me how great I looked! It felt so amazing.

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
I think I'll be keeping this Link cosplay for next year, and working on it during the year to make it even better. I've got some new ideas about how to make the chainmail and everything and I think it'll be great.

-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
I'm not much of a panel-goer, but I really did enjoy the "Bad Anime, Bad" thing. I was laughing so hard I was crying in my seat. I liked most of the AMV contest. But the best part was definitely walking the halls and having my picture taken.

-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
This year was awesome, and I owe it all to you guys! Thanks for making me feel so good about myself. I really hope I'll have time to come again next year.

-What was your favorite experience this year?
Finally did a costume that actually gave me a lot of attention. Finally got some recognition! Now next year I can do a costume that I'll enjoy being able to walk around in!

-Who did you cosplay as?
Chell, from Portal 2. The one walking around with jump boots and a portal gun that actually lit up.

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
Probably the Cheshire Cat from Pandora Hearts or Sora from KH2. The idea of doing Toph is still floating around too. We'll see.


-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
It's really hard getting my boyfriend to go to ANYTHING. I managed to get him to go to the Cosplay Chess and really glad I went to it! Had an awesome time at it and the proposal was the most touching and cutest thing yet. I said it in another spot and I'll say it again...I wish the both of them the BEST of luck!

-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
Just getting to be around like minded people for a short amount of time. Where I live...people look at me and go "What the hell is anime"? Just sad that it's over so soon. Next year...NEXT year I need to take part in way more. WHOO!

-What was your favorite experience this year?
I honestly don't have one. I've been attending for so long that the entire weekend is judged as a whole, so unless something comes completely out of left field, I can't rate anything.

-Who did you cosplay as?
The 9th Doctor, for the last time.

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
The 3rd Doctor, or Ra's Al Ghul from Batman Begins.

-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
Chocobos Ate My Baby and Yokai Nation were the two highlights of my weekend- best reaction I could have hoped for. And seeing the 100+ people at the BBC (aka Dr Who/Sherlock) photoshoot bowled me over.

-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
I was hoping the proximity to PAX wouldn't decrease the favlor or value of the con as a whole. Glad to see it clearly didn't.

Getting the chance to make new friends which I normally don't get to do.

Not sure at the moment, but I'm kinda hoping to do a more elaborate cosplay.

I enjoyed the 'informal dance' the most cause I didn't really get the chance to go to any of the other events.. : /

What was your favorite experience this year?
Oh gosh, can I just say most my favorite parts of AB2012 are the inside jokes made with my friends and some of our shenanigans that we've agreed to never explain to anyone else XD
But the one's I can share would have to be getting to talk to...oh god blanking on his name...but he's the cosplay in america person. I was looking through his book and started talking to him and he filmed me answering questions and then I walked away and fangirled for a little while XD
Also I think getting my picture taken and the comments on my Dead Master horns made my life!!

Who did you cosplay as?
I cosplayed as Dead Master from Black Rock Shooter OVA, and it was a big first for me, as in it was my first non-closet cosplay that went so well! Also cosplayed as Misa Amane...again, but this time I had a wig.

Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
Well I have a long list of "to-cosplay" but two I thought of while at AB are Lightning from Final Fantasy or Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgram.

What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
Cosplay Death Match, AMVs, 10 years of AMV and Bad Anime Bad. Both Bad Anime Bad & Cosplay Death Match were insanely hilarious and I'll definitely be going back next year.
The 10 years of AMvs (or whatever the correct title was) was one of my favorites. I loved seeing the AMVs from 2010 which was my first anime convention. And all my favorites from 2011. I fangirled very much that night!

Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
This con just keeps getting better and better every year...can't wait to see what 2013 has in store XD

I loved everything, but funnily my favorite event wasn't a panel or anything planned. I just loved walking around and meeting people. ^^; I wish I could've hugged more people. Also next year I will definitely poke Kurogane. Watch out. ^^

-Who did you cosplay as?

Fai on Saturday. Raikou on Sunday.

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
Fai never gets old. I'd like to do Akise Aru and Unno Rokurou next year. ^^ Possibly Darryl Yan from GC too.

-What was your favorite experience this year?

My favorite experience this year was late Saturday night. We had all changed out of cosplay and went back to the con, mainly for the hentai dubbing panel. However, my friend's ID expired when she turned 18 (which clearly means she isn't 18 anymore) so we couldn't go in. INSTEAD we played a game. We had 5 of us. We asked people to arrange us from oldest to youngest and then guess our ages. No one got it right. It was funny to watch people guess and see their thought processes. Loved it. And then people started challenging us. It was awesome.

-Who did you cosplay as?
On Friday, I cosplayed Princess Tutu as her Swan Lake version, with my sister as Kraehe.
On Saturday, I cosplayed Serah, with my boyfriend as Snow (Final Fantasy XIII).

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
Next year, I'm not sure! Possibly Homura from Madoka. I will likely be Tutu again. Or Martel from Tales of Symphonia.

-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
I didn't really go to many events, sadly. I guess the most exciting thing was either the fashion show or Anime Unscripted (which... really... Greg Ayres was the best part).

-Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
I had a fun time! I love AB and can't wait to go next year and not have to skip classes XD

Oh my gosh...so many! The Mock Combat for Cosplay panels (Both beginner and intermediate) were so amazing! They were so much fun! My partners were awesome, and I really would love to chat with them again! The yuri panel was hilarious! Meeting new people, all the really awesome panels! Oh and meeting the girl that draws the badges at the booth in Artists Alley. I bought an Ouran Yaoi Fan Mommy/Daddy one and one that said "I <3 <3 the Doctor"

-Who did you cosplay as?
I was gonna cosplay as Hani-Senpai from Ouran, and Yachiru from Bleach, but I ran out of money and time sadly. But I did wear really awesome t-shirts all three days!

-Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
I want to finish my Hani cosplay, as well as my Yachiru and possibly Richard from Black Butler. I dunno yet.

-What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
The Mock Combat for Cosplay panels, the Introduction to Japanese Folklore panel, the Religion in Japan panel, The Yuri panel, the Piracy Panel and the Informal Dance.

I wasn't as shy this year, so I got to meet some really awesome people! I'm so happy that people were so cool!

Oh god...Probably getting into a screaming macth with someone cosplaying Spirit from Soul Eater (I was cosplaying Maka) Then having to explain to my friend who had never seen Soul Eater what had happened. Not to mention the 15,000 times I had my picture taken.

Who did you cosplay as?
I cosplayed as Maka Albarn from Soul Eater. I had a six foot scythe with a three foot blade (it was a major pain (literally) to carry around).

Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
I want to hopefully cosplay Yuri Lowell from Tales of Vesperia.

What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
Chocobos Ate My Baby: the Evolution of Final Fantasty, Americans in Anime F Yeah! Anime Fans in Anime, All the Mecha You'll Ever Need, Bad Anime, Bad! and The Digimon Digital Fan Panel. All of them were amazing!

Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked?
All the Tales of Cosplayers were awesome! Thank you to the guys cosplaying Zagi (ToV), Luke (ToA) and Hubert (ToGf) for posing for me! Not to mention all the reasonably priced Tales of Merchandise in the Dealers Room.
Tieria Erde (first season) '09 and '10
Tieria Erde (second season) '11

Hey I was the Judas (ToD2) from the Tales of photoshoot. We all really appreciate the praise and it was a pleasure having you at the photoshoot! I wasn't there too much on Saturday but I have seen the pics you posted and they look great. Also I LOVE your Maka cosplay, especially with all the work put into the scythe (despite it most likely being a pain to lug around lol) We would also love having you as Yuri since we need more main character love. For next AB we will have the whole Graces f main party cast (I'm actually going as Malik for it) and hopefully have people like Kurt with us too if everything goes well.

I suppose I should probably make one for myself then. xD;

What was your favorite experience this year?
It had to be being part of photoshoots. It was my first Tales of photoshoot (as Judas) so I was really nervous that some people wouldn't know who I was and that I'd be left out. Yet I was noticed and got a lot pictures taken so it's nice to know people have heard about him before. But best of all it was being with the Tales of Shenanigans crew, they're honestly like a second family to me and I can't wait to be part of more photoshoots with them.

Who did you cosplay as?
I went as Judas from Tales of Destiny 2 and Gintoki from Gintama. Judas was a PAIN in the ass to cosplay just because of two main reasons:
1.The mask. Mainly because I wear glasses so I constantly have to take the mask on and off in order to see what's going on.
2. No pockets so I ended up using a totebag to put my phone, glasses, wallet, etc.
Gintoki was just awesome to cosplay as since it's much more relaxing to go as, also I always have something to read on hand in case I'm bored.

Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
I really want to cosplay as Stahn Aileron from Tales of Destiny and Malik from Tales of Graces f. I'll probably bring Gintoki back again since I like hanging out with all the Gintama fans too.

What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
Just a Gintama panel, Masquerade, and Cosplay Chess. I enjoyed all of them, and it was nice meeting all the Gintama fans at the panel. I really hope it comes back next year so I can bring more people who couldn't make it this year due to conflicting con panels. I loved seeing my friends in both the Masquerade and Cosplay Chess and it makes me want to try to enter them next year.

Anything else you want to add about how this con rocked?
The Tales of photoshoot was so epic. I really appreciate anyone who either went to it, or just stopped by to see what was going on. We love cosplaying the series so expect more at AB 2013 and maybe some other cons beyond that. Also to whoever stocked the Tales of Friends keychains in the dealers room. THANK YOU SO MUCH. ;W;

Even a full week later, I'm still going through my post-con hangover... xDD
What was your favorite experience this year?
I'd have to say being in a photoshoot. I haven't made a costume since '08 so I haven't really been to any photoshoots since then. They're much more organized now, and it was really a ton of fun to pose with all of the other people who cosplayed the same character or characters from within the show. My friends and I had worked for months on our costumes and so our full-cast group pics were especially fun and rewarding. :3
Who did you cosplay as?
Kaname Madoka from Madoka Magica on Friday and Saturday, then Honda Tohru on Saturday evening.
Who do you want to cosplay as next year?
I've got about 20 ideas floating around now, which should narrow down by the fall to one or two projects.
What events did you go to/enjoy the most?
I went to the Anime Unscripted, Con Horror Stories, and caught the end of the Cosplay Chess Match. Everything was great! :D
Anything else you want to add in about how this con rocked can go here.
Ghaa, I had a blast! Solid year this year, in all honesty. My one regret was not taking my traditional Saturday-afternoon-nap, which caused me to be a bit moody Saturday night. It wasn't big enough to ruin my con experience, though, just reminded me to get more sleep next year~. ^w^

-One of my favorite experiences was seeing two of my friends from the Metal Gear Solid group perform at the Masquerade (the Big Boss and the Otacon).
-I cosplayed as Emma "E.E." Emmerich from Metal Gear Solid 2.
-I'm hoping I can go for all three days next year, and if I do, I'm definitely going to save at least one day for E.E. again. I'm hoping I can do either the Mistress from Superjail! or Duck from Princess Tutu.
-I watched Azumanga Daioh and Revolutionary Girl Utena, I briefly went to the Masquerade, I saw the AMV Contest, I went to the Metal Gear Science Panel and the Metal Gear Series Panel.
-The people, spirit, and energy are all awesome. Better than bacon. :)
