I Spy #Transformers at Special Edition: NYC 2014 #SENYC

I don’t usually go out and hunt for Transformers products, but I tend to spot it randomly. Usually, there is a booth with a wall or shelf of Transformers. Luckily, there was one, so it was hard to miss the Cybertronians. Enjoy some of the pictures!

Cosplay at Special Edition: NYC 2014 #SENYC

You know, I had a hard time taking cosplay photos. It wasn’t because of some technical difficulty. There were cosplayers, but there weren’t that many that impressed me enough to request a photo. I tend to get more than 25 photographs a day, but this time I did not. Usually, when I go to a convention, I can walk through an area and I’ll see cosplayers without even trying. At Special Edition: NYC, I had to scope out for cosplayers. It was an odd, but expected situation. Nonetheless, here are some of the cosplayers:

The cosplayer that stole the show. Even though he was missing his Captain America shield, everyone still wanted a picture.

The Blind Box Adventure with Puella Magi Madoka Magica Mascot

I was browsing through my comic book store when I spotted these. I became intrigued and decided to buy 3 of the blind boxes. This is where the “let’s pray that I don’t get duplicates” starts happening. I hoped to get Homura and what luck! Not only did I get her, but the other characters as well on the first try. Yay! No duplicates.

Review on Petit Chara! Series - Sailor Moon Puchitto Oshiokiyo!

I first discovered these cuties on AmiAmi. I actually missed on it the first time. Then when it became available on the site, I brought it before it was sold out again.

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.
