Oh, This? It’s Just a Hobby…

In the ‘About Me’ part of my blog, I mentioned that I enjoyed watching anime.  I also like going to conventions when they have them in my city.  They are soo much fun and it’s nice to dress up and be somebody else for a day or two.  Usually two.  The conventions are three days long, and I try to dress as two different people on two different days.  Sometimes I go on the third day, and sometimes I don’t.

I’ve been going since 2014 and it has been a blast every time.  My first year I went as Korra, from Legend of Korra, the continuation of the Avatar: Last Airbender series.SAMSUNG  I got so many, “Hey!  Waterbender!”  I would spin around and almost karate chop somebody (just kidding).  It was nice to be recognized.

My second year, my brother went with me and we did a couple sort of dress up.  Some of you might know the anime, Black Butler.  He was Sebastian Michaelis, the butler; and I was Ciel Phantomhive, the master.  (FYI, that guy is not my brother.  Just a random dude who asked to hold me.)IMG_20150417_132146620  We got recognized and stopped all day.  It was superb!  After that, we got an email saying there was an 18+ only convention in December for anime, that was sort of an extension of Tekko.  We went to it, met a voice actor we both really loved, got autographs and pictures to remember it by.

My third year of Tekko, my brother and I dressed separately.  He went as another character from an anime, and I went as Black Widow one day, and Loki in his Stuttgart suit and cane the next day.  I actually got chased down by a Thor.  How could you not runaway from some big, blonde dude, who screams, “Brother!” at the top of his lungs?  I turned and ran.  Everyone thought it was funny.

For Sangawa second year around, I was old enough to participate in the sake tasting.  It was marvelous, and I was hungover the next day.  Yeah…  I will still be going again this year.  It was fun last year: sampling sake, meeting random people, and sitting out in the hallway talking till almost 2:00 a.m.  It was fun, I met knew people and my brother and I can talk to them whenever we go to these conventions.  I’ll bring you guys up to date on the next convention I go to, because they are so much fun!

And on that note, it’s been real!

I am an imaginative realist. Those seem the best words to describe myself. I look at the world through a microscope and enjoy laughing while doing so. The stupidest things can both annoy and amuse you.
