Omg... I just got back from my very first anime convention..Anime Reactor in Chigago. IT WAS SO FUN. THE BEST time Ive ever had!! I have so much to rant about!!
First, and best, was the cosplayers! It was so cool! Ive never seen cosplayers before either! There was a sonic and knuckles wich I didnt expect, and even the Slayers cast! I even got my picture taken with Amelia(my idol!) And there was this cosplay show, were the cosplayers went on stage like a fasion show, then winners were picked. There was a whole section set aside for Naruto even!
The guy who was Naruto did a really good job on the costume and hair, and the Sasuke even memorized the hand movements for his fire technique! And when Zabuza cme out, he boogied around and acted really funny! The Kakashi pulled out a little book and stared reading while on stage, and Itachi shook his butt XD And the greatest thing, when Lee came out, everyone cheered the loudest AND highest! It was awesome! And when konkuro came, my freind yelled "Go Konkuro!!" really loud and everyone looked!
Later on, I drew a pic of Lee and gave it as a gift for the Lee cosplayer, and she was so happy! There was a guy who played video game music on a piano. It was cool too, and I felt like I could be so social there! Sonic X was playing on a tv, and I ended up having a great conversation with a guy who was watching. Me and Momo and Amanda dressed up like kitties with big, cute ears she made, and everyone wanted to hug us!
I also got to see many of Chi, Vashes, wolfwood, merrel, chouji, shino(YES!), haku, a GIANT No face, GoGo(omg a ff3 char I was SO happy!), lupin, team rocket, and so many more! my freind amanda and another cat girl who followed us even full-on GLOMPED a Kakashi! He was so baffled!
We also went to an art section, and I met *sayda
there and we talked and it was awesome! I bought so many things in the shopping part, I got a set of Naruto figures for only 20 bucks (i only needed the Lee!) I got a Sonic plushie, suprizingly beautiful pokemon figures, a manga I wanted cus it was cheaper, a Misha-san pin, and a cute little lee keychain. My sis got a Tails plushie too!
Oh man, Ive never been so anxious about getting photos developed in my life... everyone there was SO nice! I met new people... I got cool stuff... I am SO going back to it next year and any other convention I can! I hope to dress up as Amy Rose and glomp a Sonic!
phew... what a rant... I bet none of you people finished this... plus I double posted this like, ten times....but I just had to rant about this somewere, and I know im missing a lot of stuff too. *runs of in a happy gallop*
