Cosplay 2012 Reflection
Since I haven't had much chance to sew or cosplay this semester and since it's already November (wow!) my cosplay year of 2012 is coming to a close. Here's a quick summary of the cosplays I've completed this year:
America (Axis Powers Hetalia) - debuted Taiyou Con 2012
Tsunashi Takuto, Ginga Bishounen (Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto) - debuted Phoenix Comicon 2012
Oliver (VOCALOID 3) - debuted Phoenix Comicon 2012
Ciel Phantomhive, Ciel In Wonderland (Kuroshitsuji OVA) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
Len Kagamine, Servant of Evil (VOCALOID 2) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
Allen Walker, Crown Clown (D. Gray-Man) - debuted Anime Expo 2012
(secret cosplay for 2012)
That's a total of six costumes! What a busy year for me! But I'm kind of proud of myself that I was able to accomplish all that. And I have to admit, I think I've improved a lot, too! Looking at what I was sewing just last year to what I'm sewing now, I think there's a definite improvement. I hope I can keep progressing into the new year! As far as awards/honors/features are concerned, this is what we, *BanzaiProductions have accomplished:
Best In Show: Taiyou Con 2012 masquerade
Cosmode AX 2012 coverage: Servant of Evil and Daughter of Evil
Featured in the following cosplay videos: [link] [link] [link]
Best Technical Performance: Saboten 2012 masquerade
Now that I think about it, 2012 was a big year. There were times when it got a bit busy, yes...and even very, very stressful. But as they say, "you reap what you sew." Hopefully 2013 will be just as good, if not, better with better memories with everyone and even more times of fun! Speaking of 2013...here are my cosplay plans of 2013!
