AnimeNEXT 2012 Day 1, a set on Flickr.
I wouldn’t say that the events were great, but AnimeNEXT 2012 was one of the most memorable conventions, behind Anime Expo 2011 (and way ahead of NYAF 2011, my worst convention). I met many people, made friends, and had fun. I wouldn’t say that the Lone Cosplayers/Con-Goers meetup that I planned went as planned, but nevertheless, I was able to meet new people. It’s nice to know that there are people that can counter my timidness and approach timid cosplayers like me. There needs to be more people like those people.
On Day 0, I cosplayed as Kagamine Len (normal). On Day 1, I cosplayed as Kagamine Len (Japanese-style, http://piapro.jp/t/ocQM). On Day 2, I cosplayed Shinku Izumi (DOG DAYS) in the morning and Kagamine Len (normal) in the afternoon/night. On the last day, I cosplayed as Kagamine Len (Love Is War). Yup, I was Len all four days. I was only planning to be Len during Days 0 and 1, but various circumstances eventually decided that that would not happen.
After going to the Senbonzakura panel on Sunday, I decided that I will cosplay as Senbonzakura Len, maybe during Otakon, but more likely during NYCC.
