Post Oni-Con: Metric butt-ton of photos...

Wow. Haven't been to an animé con in a few years now, and have never cosplayed before. Well, before this weekend, anyway.

The con was a blast. It was twice as fun as my last (Nekocon 6), and I actually got sleep this time around. I'm so tired right now... been a long day, so I'll just get to the pictures of all the colorful dorks (myself included) who got out and had fun at Oni-Con.

So there's no confusion in the matter, I did not take these pictures (obviously). I got them from dowxp's Flickr account. I'm glad he brought a camera, because I didn't have an opportunity to.

I'm in the straightjacket (natch). It needs to be said that this is not my outfit. I came with nothing to cosplay and Die (the one leading me across the stage above) was kind enough to dress me up as Shinya, both of us from the band Dir en Grey. T'was fun. ^_^

This guy played a character from the animé Trinity Blood... I won't even pretend to know who he is...

...and even though I've yet to see the animé, this was one of the most detailed costumes I saw.

Same for hers, from Paradise Kiss (which I've also yet to see)... and she won the "Best In Show" award for it.

I loved this guy for two reasons: One, he's a fucking cactuar... that's awesome; Two, he was one of a handful of people who actually knew who I was and wanted my picture.

Amano cosplayers ruled.



I am so getting started on a Sheik (from Ocarina of Time) cosplay right away. I'm sure I'll be finding and posting more pictures of Oni-Con soon. Dun want to let it be largely forgotten like Nekocon has ended up being for me.

NICE.
Do you happen to know who that Die was? I took a picture and got a hug from 'em and I'm wondering if they're on LJ somewhere.

If so...
I LOVE YOU!! ♥
Oh, I totally do... and they're on LJ, yeah. Die was the whole reason I dressed up. ^_^

Die's (just the cosplayer, not the actual guitarist, obviously :D) LJ is oshima. Show the love! :3
Sweet. Thanks so much! ^__^
No problem. ^_^

That fellow you claimed was from Paradise Kiss is actually from an anime called Trinity Blood. The character's name escapes my memory at the moment, but I'm pretty sure it was Luiz.

Trinity Blood! That's what I heard. Sorry... and thanks. I'll have to fix that. @_@;
