My First Cosplay at Anime North 2007
Cosplaying for the first time after being blown away at the last year's Anime North, it was a bit scary at first but gradually rolled into the nerdy tradition.
After being blown away at the last Anime North 2006 I figured why not get a cosplay costume as well.
I purchased a Kyosuke cosplay set from the Mooncostumes website where sell pretty good costumes for decent prices, one recommendation would be to give them your exact sizes otherwise they could totally screw up your order.
My character is from the video game "Rival Schools vs. SNK".
I made some hilarious pictures with popular characters, namely; Zangief from Street Fighter, Totoro, the kids from Battle Royale, the tetris game and Megaman.
I was also surprised by how many beautiful girls actually attend these events. It is truly unexplored territory.
The attached video includes the following scenes: Intro, Anime Wrestling, Crossing the main intersection, Playing console classics (my favorite event), Bleach Photoshoot, Comics & Merchandise Hall, DDR, Interactive fighting game and the advice on "living in Japan" panel.
