Journal Entry #4

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 23, 2015, 3:06 AM

I'm not very good with keeping up with a journal. I should probable attempt to do at least once a week or twice a month. So a few days ago I went to Anime St. Louis with :iconvoiceactingchibi:. It's was being held at the convention center in Collinsville Illinois. :iconvoiceactingchibi: had several cosplays planned for the convention. For the first day she planned on cosplaying as Kotetsu from Tiger and Bunny. For second day she planned to cosplay as Armin from Attack on Titan. The third day she planned to cosplay as Nagisa from FREE!. She also planned 2 back up cosplays. Holo from Spice and Wolf and a casual Aoba from Dramatical Murder. I had one cosplay planned for the convention. I was going to cosplay as Yuu Kashima from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. When got to to the Convention we got our badges and waited for a bit. It was our first time arriving at a convention before it started. We normally arrive late to the convention. We would take Mega Bus, Train, or drive up to the convention. The Conventions that we gone to before Anime St. Louis were the ones up in Chicago or Kansas City. While waiting for the convention to start we took some pictures of other cosplayers. I was the designated photographer for the weekend. I plan on posting the pictures that we took on to deviantart and Tumblr. Some of the pictures will take a while to be uploaded because I'll need to look up the characters names and shows,movies, and/ or games that they're from. After some time gone by we went to the Hotel and checked in. :iconvoiceactingchibi: changed into her Kotetsu. We went to the Crunchyroll Classics. Crunchyroll staff talked about some of the classic anime that you can watch on Crunchyroll. After the panel I went back to the Hotel to get some sleep. I was up for a little over 24 hours. I worked 3rd shift at my work. I had to go to work the night before the convention. After work I went home to the apartment. Picked up :iconvoiceactingchibi: and got the car packed up. Day 2 of the convention was the day I was going to cosplay as Yuu Kashima from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. :iconvoiceactingchibi: went as Armin for most of the day. The first panel we went to was Bara Mode Activate: Fitness for Cosplay. It was an interesting panel about getting fit for cosplays. The panel went over the do's and don'ts of a diet and a work routine. After the panel was over we went to the Doubletree Hotel for the Guest Autographs: Erica + Lucien. :iconvoiceactingchibi: got her badge signed. It was a little bit before our next panel. We walked around the dealers room for a bit. We then headed to the next panel. It was Crunchyroll Industry Panel. It was similar to the panel that they did yesterday except they were a little bit more prepared for it. They had some internet issues the day before. The slides for the panel yesterday were incomplete. This panel talked more about the anime industry. We went back to the Hotel for a bit to eat and take a break. After eating I went to a Cardfight Vanguard game event. Later that day I went to a panel by myself. It was the My Little Pony: The Fanpanel Returns. It was hosted by the Princess Mandy. I remember seeing her at the Anime St. Louis back in 2013. That time I was doing a Rainbow Dash cosplay. I have some pictures on my deviantart. After that I met up :iconvoiceactingchibi: and we went back to the hotel for a few minutes. :iconvoiceactingchibi: also changed into her Casual Aoba cosplay. We had one more panel we planned on going to at midnight. It was the Let's Play…Scary Games 18+. The panel was hosted by a Markiplier cosplayer. The panel's audience was challenge to Slender and Five Nights at Freddy's. There was a cosplayer behind the player waiting for the player to do a jump scare for when the player loses or dies in the game. Sadly the panel was cut short due to someone vomiting from the excitement. Day 3 of the convention I wasn't cosplaying and :iconvoiceactingchibi: was cosplaying as Nagisa. :iconvoiceactingchibi: went to the Crunchyroll's Spring Season! panel and I went to another Cardfight Vanguard event. Sadly the event didn't happen casue no one showed up. If it did happen I already left the room and went to do something else. Later I met up with :iconvoiceactingchibi: for one last panel. It was the Working in the Anime Industry panel. It was another Crunchyroll Panel. They talked about working in the Anime Industry and how they became a part of it. After that we did some more roaming and picture taking and then started heading home. It was a fun and exciting weekend.
