Not sure how soon I’ll get to any of these aside from the finished Law, as I’m not sure how many other cons we’ll be going to this year, but my list of planned cosplays:
Con-wise next year, Anime STL is a go since it’s so close to where we are, but A-kon might be possible too. If so, I’ll definitely have Punk Hazard/Shichibukai Law and Levi ready, but if I can manage one more I’d like to get Sabo or Corazon finished as well.
I also need to make a better prop sword for Law. The one I currently have is just a modified wooden practice sword. While it was fine for a throw together at the last minute cosplay, it bugs me that it’s not the right type of sword. Law just has to have a nodachi to make my life difficult!
Katie and I attended Anime STL today. It’s been a while since we’ve been to a con, the last one being 2011’s Anime STL. Before that, we’d been traveling down to Texas for A-kon and Oni-con for years, so we’ve been a bit out of the con loop.
We cosplayed this year! I went as Trafalgar Law (sans facial hair) and she was Boa Hancock, both from One Piece.
The main thing we were looking forward to was the One Piece panel. We’d gone to it before in ’11 and we enjoyed it, same for the one this year as well! The guy that runs it does a really great job with it and makes it a lot of fun.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures while we were there and I think I posed for more than I took, haha.
Con-wise, I think we might go to Arch Anime in June and we’ll most likely go as Law and Hancock again. Maybe next year we can go to one out of state, preferably one that more of our friends are attending, especially Shintomo! We want to cosplay together!
