Anime conventions, or at least anime dominated conventions (as Cos and Effect is marketed a bit more broadly).
My girlfriend was giving strong consideration to it for her next cosplay (because she thinks its cute and probably because she looks the part too) but I think I might have put her off by saying I thought most people wouldn't get it.
Question: what do you think the odds are that a cosplayer cosplaying as Eru in the second Hyouka ED would be mistaken as cosplaying Sherlock Holmes... as opposed to, you know, Chitanda Eru cosplaying as Sherlock Holmes?
Would you find it strange if I said that of eight Ririchiyo cosplayers Iíve run into at Vancouver and Seattle conventions, two of them have also cosplayed Taiga from Toradora and one says she wants to cosplay the character?
(Also, for its profile Inu x Boku SS is really popular as a coupleís cosplay, Iíve seen three couples do Soushi and Ririchiyo in the past year (as well as one case of two girls cosplaying the characters).)
No... I wasn't aware of any RC writers attending, but it could be Divine - he lives up there. I'm honestly out of the loop on most RC stuff now that they have so many writers. I do know from experience that you can't just walk up to a Con and ask for a press badge - you have to pre-register, which I always do.
So when I was getting my badge at Anime Revolution in Vancouver today I heard one of the staff members ask another who Random Curiousity was and whether they could have one of the press badges... any idea what that was about?
As with Sakuracon in Seattle, most of my photos ended up being Madoka or Fate/Zero related, but I think I got better photos from a smaller group of cosplayers because I had far more time and space at my disposal.
