Emerald City ComiCon 2016 – Convention Vlog

Emerald City ComiCon 2016 was a blast! This was my first ECCC and first Comic Con and it did not disappoint. I was overwhelmed by how large it was, especially when I compared it Sakura-Con (which in my head was a big convention). Did you go to ECCC this year? What was your experience like?

You can watch my full con ventures below:

Part 1 | Days 1 & 2:

Part 2 | Days 3 & 4:

My next convention will be Anime Expo which runs from July 1-4 in Los Angeles, CA.

If you are going, what will you be cosplaying as? I’m still deciding but I’m super excited. 😀

Hello and welcome! :D

Hi everyone!

First, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

While I haven’t been cosplaying for a terribly long time, I’ve quickly fallen in love with this art form, and it has become a big part of my life in the past year. Sakura-Con 2014 was my first closet cosplay as Teemo from League of Legends, while Sakura-Con 2015 was the first time I actually made parts of my costume for Kurome from Akame Ga Kill.

Ultimately, I wanted to dedicate a space where I could document my love for this hobby in full.

Here’s what you can expect to see on my blog:

  • Prop Write-Ups. Full write ups of the process I used to construct some of my cosplay props (e.g., Yordle Ears) with photos.
  • Reviews. From circle lenses to wigs to cosplay costumes purchased online. I want to share my honest opinion–both good and bad.
  • Convention Experiences. Ah! The super fun stuff! I’ll take you with me–vlog style–as I attend various anime, video game, and other nerdy conventions throughout the year. Below are the conventions I currently have on my radar for the rest of 2016:
    • Anime Expo – July 1 -4 *
    • PAX West – Date TBD (Late August, early September)
    • Aki-Con – October 9/2-9/5*
    • Summoners Con – Date TBD
      * indicate a confirm convention
  • More! The possibilities are almost endless. 😉

So please sit back, relax, and I hope you enjoy what’s to come. Feel free to let me know what you would be interesting in seeing. I am so excited to share my experiences. 😀
