A group of friends from college and I went to Otakon this year. We decided that this year we should do a cosplay so we went as 7 of the more main characters from Shugo Chara. The costumes came together nicely, considering I didn’t start them until after graduation and everyone was remote and didn’t get their costumes fitted until the convention itself. The hat, cloak, puffy pants and puffy sleeves are my points of pride. I’m excited to see what I can do in the future; I’m slowly but surely learning good skills.

Otakon was good this year, but honestly, it was more about going with friends than anything. I didn’t even get to one panel this year. Though a lot of that was probably due to the time the cosplay took. I’ve learned from that now and since I’m moved in now, no problems about unpacking.

Hopefully we’ll be able to pull something off next year.
