Cosplaying Adventures as Ty Lee


So for Friday at Anime Boston 2014, I cosplayed as Ty Lee from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I chose this character because 1) years ago someone told me that I could portray her and 2) since I happen to be flexible, it made the most sense. When I cosplay, there is some expectation that someone will request a picture. Even if there’s only one person that asks, it will happen when you cosplay. However, I had other reactions from a certain demographic of attendees. Let’s start from the beginning.

Cosplay Feud/Death Match at #AnimeBoston 2014

Here’s a general overview of what a Cosplay Feud/Death Match was. The format of the show was fairly simple. Projected on the screen were images of characters that entered the competition. If I am not mistaken, the characters were randomly picked to duel. Once the selection had been made, a slide of the two combatants was projected onto the screen and the respective characters appeared on stage. Following that, Kaiba, who was the Master of Ceremony (MC), placed his hand over each cosplayer and the one with the most cheers was declared as the victor. Obviously it’s not a real duel and it lasted for about 10 seconds. Once the duel was completed, the loser admitted defeat and was more or less dragged away by the other losers. Then the cycle repeated itself.

Cosplay at #AnimeBoston 2014

Pirates plus a Batman. When I was taking the photo, I did not notice anything usual. After I said my thank you to the pirates, Batman approached me and said to look at the picture. That’s when I noticed the photobombing Batman.

#SailorMoon Signing at #AnimeBoston 2014


When Anime Boston announced their Sailor Moon English and Japanese dub guests, I started doing some research on each of them. Once I learned which season or episode that they were involved in, I went digging through DVDs and VHS in hopes to find something for the guests to sign. Ideally, I wanted all the signatures on one item. Well, that didn’t happen.

The Blood Drive located in the Sheraton outside the Artist Alley. The only thing I liked was the plush. Haha. It looks so big and friendly!
