I’m disappointed in Anime Expo at the moment. It’s mid-May right now and I’ve only heard one guest that remotely interested in that is going so far and that is Noizi Ito. They seriously better come up with much better guests, especially musical guests.
There is probably only one quote I absolutely hate hearing when I’m cosplaying: “Hey <insert character I’m cosplaying>, where is <insert character counterpart>?” For example, “Hey Kirito, where’s Asuna?” or “Hey Genis, where’s Presea/Raine?”. It always reminds me that I don’t have a cosplay partner. This is why I prefer not to cosplay certain characters alone…like Kirito…or Len (in some situations).
So, I’m feeling discouraged right now. While I can cosplay with some people, I don’t have an actual cosplay group that does cosplays from many of the shows I would like to cosplay from, like SAO. And I still don’t have a cosplay partner, which is really discouraging since many of the cosplays I want to do would do much better if I cosplayed with someone else. And it seems like when I go to a gathering, everyone has someone else they can cosplay with. I don’t know what to do at the moment.
Anyone want to cosplay from Date A Live, Nanoha, and/or Valvrave with me?
Bought Tickets for Anime Boston Formal Ball
There we go. I bought my ticket for the Anime Boston Formal Ball. This time, I need to man up and not wuss out. At least I don’t have the excuse of wishing that I could dance with my ex this time around because that is partially what prevented me from staying for more than a minute during the Katsucon Formal Ball. The other reason being that I’m too timid to ask a girl to dance with me.
I hate nice girls.
Just exchanging hellos with them will get you curious.
Start texting each other, and your heart will flutter.
If they call you, you're done for.
Enjoy staring at your logs and grinning like a fool.
But I won't be fooled again,
You guys call it kindness,
but if you're nice to me,
you're also nice to others.
I always end up almost forgetting that.
If truth is a harsh mistress, then I'm sure
that lies are a form of kindness.
Thus, I say kindness itself is also a lie.
I would always have these expectations,
and end up with misunderstandings.
At some point, I stopped hoping.
A master loner is once bitten, twice shy.
Being a veteran on this battlefield of life,
absolutely nobody can beat me in losing.
That's why I will always hate nice girls.
Unfortunately, because of what I’ve been through, especially during the past several months, I’ve almost started thinking that way. I won’t say that I don’t like nice girls because I do, but most of that monologue that Hikigaya gave is something I started thinking.
I just started watching Valvrave and right now, I’m considering cosplaying as Q-vier. I don’t usually cosplay the bad guys, but I thought he would be a fun character to cosplay and he also fits the type of characters I usually cosplay. I’m considering cosplaying him next year, though there is a very slim chance that I’ll cosplay him during NYCC.
My top 10 anime girls (as of today)
- Chrome Dokuro (Reborn!)
- Saigusa Haruka (Little Busters!)
- Harusaki Chiwa (OreShura)
- Aoyama Nanami (Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo)
- Merry Nightmare (Yumekui Merry)
- Itsuka Kotori (Date A Live)
- Yui (Angel Beats!)
- Lisbeth (Sword Art Online)
- Shinomiya Ayase (Guilty Crown)
- Shimada Minami (Baka Test)
I sometimes feel (scratch that…always feel) that girls and people in general don’t like quiet, shy, and timid cosplayers like myself…
I guess that’s why I almost always feel unwanted in the cosplay community and society in general…
