MangaNEXT 2012, a set on Flickr.

MangaNEXT is a pretty small convention compared to other conventions I’ve been to (only Mokucon was smaller) but thanks to Rutgers’ JVCA, I was able to go with people. In the two days I went (Saturday and Sunday), I had fun despite not having a lot to do. A problem I usually have with small conventions is that especially for timid people like me, one can easily run out of things to do. When you go with people, it’s easy to forget about those problems.

On Saturday, I went as Ciel Phantomhive and I was probably one of maybe 6 Ciel’s there. On Sunday, I went as Kagamine Len and I was probably one of maybe 5 Len’s (I believe there were less the previous day).
Nothing much to say about the convention, except that I had a good time going with others…and I lost a hat 😦

One thing that has come out of going to MangaNEXT is that after seeing all the Rin/Len pairs and Kuroshitsuji pairs, I have an even greater desire to find a cosplay partner. And yes, I will continue trying to find a cosplay partner until I find one…no exceptions!

Next (planned) convention: AnimeNEXT

Anime Cons 2012 Plans

 My chances of going to:

MangaNEXT: 70% (It really depends on if I can get No Cosplayer Left Behind up and running by then, max 1 day)

AnimeNEXT: 99% (I should be able to go. Whether or not I can go Day 0 or Day 1 depends on whether or not I have a job and if I can get out of that job for that Friday)

Anime Expo: 80% (I should have the money, but again, it depends on my working situation)

Possible cosplays for 2012:

Genis Sage: I’ll consider it depending on when Tales of photo shoots occur

Ciel Phantomhive: I enjoyed being Ciel during NYAF. I think I was the only guy cosplaying as him during NYAF (of maybe a dozen Ciels). Most likely cosplay him during AnimeNEXT and Anime Expo.

Kagamine Len original costume: Of course I’ll cosplay him (original costume). I’m even upgrading it so it’s better than before.

Kagamine Len Hitobashira Alice costume: It’s a little bit short of me, but it’s fine. Probably during Anime Expo, maybe during AnimeNEXT.

Kagamine Len Servant of Evil costume: If I go to MangaNEXT, I’ll use this costume. Don’t know about AnimeNEXT or Anime Expo yet because of the hotter weather.

Mukuro Rokudo: I already mentioned in the Cosplay.com forums (I need to start using that more often…) that I might cosplay him. The exact costume I’ll use will depend on my money situation. I don’t like Mukuro, but it’s for the sake of Chrome. Also means I’m looking for a girl to cosplay as Chrome.

Kagamine Len Pretty Fundoshi Aku-malen costume: I’m thinking about getting this costume. Again, it depends on my money situation.
