AnimeFest 2014 Cosplay Pics Part 2

+Social media links. Feel free to follow them and learn all about just what exact non-gendered pronoun they want to be referred to by. Enjoy the enlightenment. (Links for Part 1’s cosplayers are included in this post as well.)

Note: If you want bigger pictures, click on the images — they’re hyperlinked to the bigger versions (that are like 300 MB a piece). If you just try to view the image itself (in Firefox, for example, doing Right Click -> View Image), you’ll get some small/fucked-up version of the image. I have to do it like this because WordPress sucks.

If you wanna know what the fuck these people are cosplaying, check the file names.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Asuka_Langley_Soryu-Neon_Genesis_Evangelion_Small

While going to the third floor of AnimeFest was typically a wasted trip (the only events up there were the video rooms), in cases like this, it definitely paid off.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Bromura_and_Madobro-Madoka_Small

Yeah, I wasn’t about to NOT get this pic.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Captain_America_and_Char_Aznable-Captain_America_and_Gundam_Wing_Small

Whilst Captain America was amused I just wanted a pic of them playing Magic, Char seemed less than pleased.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Fire_Emblem_Awakening_Group_Small

OTP: Henry x me. Sorry, ladies, that’s just how it’s gotta be.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Glynda_Goodwitch-RWBY_Small

More like bestwitch, amirite? (Yes I am.)

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Hoozuki-Hoozuki_no_Reitetsu_Small

I don’t think this person was too happy that I took their pic, but I got it anyway. I hope all the one of you that actually liked Hoozuki will find my struggle worth it.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Isana_Yashiro_and_Kuroh_Yatogami_K_Small

That fucking neko prop. A+ for attention to detail, guys.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Jotaro-JoJo's_Bizarre_Adventure_Small

Jotaro’s Sit.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Kaneki_Ken-Tokyo_Ghoul_Small

Made this Kaneki miss an elevator stop cuz I’m selifsh. Had to get my Tokyo Ghoul fix, tho.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Kyoko_Kirigiri_(Alpaca_Mode)-Danganronpa_Small

I may not understand the alpaca craze, but I definitely respect it.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Lightning-Final_Fantasy_XII_Small

Either there’s some juice box in-joke I’m missing out on, or I interrupted her while she was trying to rehydrate. I’m fine with either option.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Medusa_Gorgon-Soul_Eater_Small

She threw her shoes off for this pic. God, I love cosplayers.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Mikuru_Asahina_and_Yuki_Nagato-The_Melancholy_of_Haruhi_Suzumiya_Small

An image doesn’t do the awesomeness justice. Have a Youtube vid.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Rei_Ayanami-Neon_Genesis_Evangelion_Small

I think this is the only image I took this con that I didn’t fuck up somehow. Though I suppose *some* credit for this can go to the Rei.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Saber-Fate_Stay_Series_Small

Got off at the wrong floor to take this one. Ended up taking the stairs another 10 flights back to my room, but it was hella worth it. Was it technically stalking? Sure. But I think I’m cute enough to get away with it~

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Sakura_Haruno_and_Ahri-Naruto_and_League_of_Legends_Small

That Sakura’s eyes are really unfair. :<

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Samurai_Flamenco-Samurai_Flamenco_Small

(>_O)b

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Tomoko-Watamote_Small

Whilst hikki-mode Tomoko would’ve been entertaining, I suppose it wouldn’t have been accurate to showcase at a con. :<

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Shuu_Tsukiyama-Tokyo_Ghoul_01_Small

AnimeFest_2014-Day_2-Shuu_Tsukiyama-Tokyo_Ghoul_05_Small

It’s hard to get more top-tier than this. Con fucking won.

 

 

 

Sunday

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Fuuka_Yamagishi_and_Elizabeth-Persona_3_FES_Small

Yeah, P4 was better. But at least you know P3 cosplayers have actually played the game.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Kiroumaru-Shinsekai_Yori_Small

I fanboyed pretty fucking hard when I saw this motherfucker coming through.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Kiroumaru-Shinsekai_Yori_Weird_Guy_Version_Small

…well, at least until the guy decided to talk to me. He wouldn’t let me take that first pic unless I also promised to take one with his face showing. Yeah, I dunno either. Hope this gets you off, buddy.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Konata_Izumi-Lucky_Star_Small

Didn’t even have to ask her to pose with the pocky. She just did it. Goddamn do I love when cosplayers are on the same level as me.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Koto-Kyouso_Giga_Small

For this one, I ended up inadvertently being the asshole who blocks a walkway for a pic. Worth it, tho.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Mion_Sonozaki-Higurashi_no_naku_Koro_ni_Small

I was reading up on the twitters when I saw some girl was debating whether to cosplay as Mion or not. You know I’m all about dat Higurashi, so I pretty much begged her to do it. Mission accomplished. \o/

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Satsuki_Kiryuin_and_Nonon_Jazukure-Kill_la_Kill_01_Small

If you haven’t noticed already, I tend to suck at taking pictures. In this pic, the shot of Satsuki is clear…

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Satsuki_Kiryuin_and_Nonon_Jazukure-Kill_la_Kill_02_Small

…while in this one, Nonon is more in focus. And no, you don’t want to see me try and photoshop the two together. Just collect both and move on.

AnimeFest_2014-Day_3-Sorceress-Dragon's_Crown_Small

Kamitami would be pleased. <3

 

 

 

Tumblrs/Twitters/Etceters:

All these links were pulled from either business cards cosplayers handed me or if they self-identified through a tumblr reblog or something. Presumably that means they wouldn’t mind a few extra followers, but if attention triggers you cosplayers, I’ll remove the links.

Additionally, if I posted your cosplay and you want your links shared, post a comment or contact me elsewise and I’ll add in the info. Or if you wanna give me your cell, I’m sure we could work out something on that angle too.

All right, cosplays done. Now come the write-ups. (And yes, I am doing the write-ups. Already have Sunday completed, so don’t think I’m gonna stall this one.)

Just looked at Comiket cosplays, and then I come to this… It’s just so… meh.

Dark_Sage says:

There were professional-tier cosplayers at AnimeFest. I just didn’t take their pictures because models are boring.

If you want some photoshopped bullshit of anorexic bimbos and jacked douchebags who are only anime fans so long as it gets them attention and/or a paycheck, you might be looking in the wrong place.

Solaristics says:

I love me some photoshop bullshit ( ¬‿¬).

will says:

Didn’t you have a no fat chicks rule? What happened, bro?

Dark_Sage says:

Yeah, but did you see that Konata? Sorry, but some rules are meant to be broken.

will says:

No, my computer screen uses plastic, not reinforced transparent steel… It broke under the pressure of those pictures.

LotusGG says:

Only a Gorilla Glass to fight against the pressure of a Dragon’s pic.

Anonymous says:

Post some reviews. ;_;

Dark_Sage says:

Sorry, Crymore’s now Conventionmore. Shikatabehelped.

ONODERAAA says:

JoJo’s cut went drastically wrong

jimmy says:

>I hope all the one of you that actually liked Hoozuki will find my struggle worth it.
Cheers, mate.
Was identifying Char as being from Gundam Wing an attempt to piss off Gundam fans somehow?

Dark_Sage says:

I dunno, it’s all Gundam Wing to me.

Anderother says:

Post something about the fansub drama ;_;

Dark_Sage says:

There’s been like a hundred-plus comments in the past day on it. Check the Off Topic page for all your drama needs: http://www.crymore.net/off-topic/

I suppose if you really want a nicely packaged drama post on it, I could oblige though. But it’ll take a bit of time since I’m about to head out to work and I’ll want to consult some IRC peeps before I do anything.

fohfuu says:

That is a top-tier Dragon Crown cosplay.
