Sailor Moon @ Anime Expo 2014 [Part I]

A lot of my friends have affectionately nicknamed Anime Expo 2014 "Sailor Moon Expo" because of the huge amount of Sailor Moon events! Saturday was the most concentrated, with tons of different panels, meetups, and more, so of course that's the day that we all wore our Sailor Senshi cosplays. We somehow managed to squeeze a small photoshoot in there, and here are the results!

Brian Calilung was the photographer again (same as last year for Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune), and we were able to get quite a few really lovely shots from it despite the heat and limited time! Unfortunately, we were unable to get a full group picture due to scheduling conflicts, but we're planning to do another set of photos soon! Until then, read on to enjoy what we were able to get from AX 2014.

Kill la Kill @ Anime Expo 2014

Anime Expo 2014 was an amazing, busy weekend filled with cosplay, panels, and hanging out with friends. One of the things I did during the convention was help host a Kill la Kill cosplay meetup before the big special event panel and concert! It was my first time running a gathering, but it was a lot of fun (and I learned a lot for next time). I didn't have anyone there with me to take pictures, but reddit user noodleknight (tumblr) was kind enough to let me use some of his photos from the event! You can see his full album here.

I also worked with some great people, including photographer Eric Millan (tumblr) and cosplayers Aira Masquerade and Toshiyasu Cosplay.

Lots more pictures following the cut!

June Coordinates & Lolita Weekend in Tijuana

June has been so busy for me with cosplay, so I was really glad to have a few opportunities to dress up and relax. Lolita Weekend with Misako Aoki in Tijuana was a wonderful break from Anime Expo preparation!

Read on for three outfits and a few quick snaps from the event!

Review: Mystery Garden Chiffon Bonnet

I've been wanting a plain black bonnet for a while now, so when I saw an advertisement for Polish indie brand Mystery Garden's new chiffon bonnet design on one of the Facebook communities, I figured it was a good time to go for it!

(Super Overdue) A/P Golden Week Lucky Packs!

So... I meant to post about this weeks ago. No really, I had it all planned out and everything! I'm not really sure what happened, but hey, better late than never, right?

For Golden Week, Alice and the Pirates/BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT released small happy packs. They were surprisingly easy to buy--I ordered mine with my mobile phone!--and quite cheap. It ended up being quite a lucky pack indeed, since I ended up keeping three out of the four items. Keep reading for more pictures and ordering notes.
