Okay, first we will start with my Friday cosplay…
NAOE KANETSUGU from Samurai Girls!

So here’s the results!!
It took me less than a month to create this cosplay…

The hammer was really hard to make,
so I made a different version of it.

Also, I made the bells for her hair,
but thought it would be annoying to wear at convention so I left it at home.

It was my first time cosplaying, EVER!
I had no clue what it was like…

But all I know is that I spent a lot of time creating this cosplay,
and I was very curious to see what people thought of it!

I guess people liked it!

There were 3 of us in our Samurai Girls group.
My friend Allison as Gisen Yagyu, and Juliee as Sen Tokugawa.

One thing crazy that I noticed when you cosplay is that…
It’s imposible to get from point A to point B!

If you stop for one photo, you have to be prepared to take dozens more…

I loved that Anime Expo had these background set ups to take photos with.
This prop area works so well with our cosplay!

So whenever I take photos, I can’t help but either smile and laugh ridiculously,
or squint my eyes in attempt to look serious.

I wish someone told me how weird I looked in most of my photos!!! wp-monalisa icon

Anyways, I really enjoyed cosplaying as Naoe Kanetsugu.
Although I don’t really like the anime, she was a fun cosplay to make.
Oh, but that hammer! I was sore the next day.

I’m not sure what to do with this cosplay now…
My giant hammer is sitting in my living room still.
Haha, maybe I’ll cosplay her again one day in the future.

Moving on to Saturday, I cosplayed as
SAILOR VENUS from Sailor Moon!

I’m not gonna even post a photo of what Sailor Venus is supposed to look like,
because you should already know!! And shame on you if you don’t.

I’m so grateful that I didn’t make this Sailor outfit.
We got these from Christine’s work, Cosplay House.
The quality was awesome, might I add?

The staff that Sailor Moon (Allison) is holding was specially made
for our cosplay by Cosplay House as well!

I bought my orange shoes at the mall near my house.
It took forever for me to find the right pair that fit!!!

The only part of this cosplay that I made were the bands that go around my ankels ^^

Yes, that’s right… We had a Sailor Saturn in our crew!

Since there were so many of us in our group,
it was hard taking photo shoot pictures with everyone around!

Here’s some of what we did manage it take…

Lol, this pose is so unflattering..
But it was an imitation of some other famous pose.. not sure which.

I was scrolling through our photos and I saw this string of images,
I just had to make it into a gif!
