Cosplay photo blog for ToyCon 2013!

Mon Jun 17, 2013, 7:53 PM
ToyCon 2013!

So we went to Toycon last Saturday and as usual I... didn't really get to take pictures of toys and stuff. It was so crowded around the merchandise hall that I couldn't stop and take photos because people were constantly threading through and shoving. It was like a river of people with an actual current, hahah! Sometimes I'd find a friend to chat with but we'd eventually be pulled apart by the tide, it was kind of funny.

I wanted to wear something simple and comfortable so I posted on my Facebook that I would wear my old Ichigo cosplay in his Karakura High uniform. The Bleach manga is so crazy now that it just made me miss the days when Bleach was simple.

I think this is the last decent picture of myself that I have wearing this, and it was taken ages ago.

And here it is on me again, with a new wig, better contact lenses, better wig styling and cosplay makeup skills (somewhat), and Kon plush that was given to me as a present by one of my readers. I snapped this on my camera to check if my makeup and stuff looked alright on camera. And then I decided I needed to put more eyeliner, which you'll see after a couple of images below this.

The contact lenses I used are Jewel Hazel Brown from Alice and Rabbit's Shop :pointr:…

I posted this picture before leaving my house. I said that Heading over to ToyCon with my toy... Kon... pfffftttt
My friends want to maim me for my puns sometimes

Here's a reference image for this outfit. I had a shirt in a similar color but it doesn't have a white collar. Ah well, close enough for now! What's kind of funny is that we actually have Ichigo's bag by chance, which we used in this shoot:
Bleach: The Usual Suspects by behindinfinity
It's with Kat moonlightflight though and I didn't get to borrow it from her in time, but for next time at least. :XD:

And here's the pic with MOAR EYELINER. For those of you who wanted to see what I did with eyeliner and stuff for Ichigo, here's a look at it. The way Ichigo's eyes are drawn, they kind of slant downwards at the outer corners so I pulled my liner down that way and used brown for the outer edges and for the bottom part. I like using brown nowadays for cosplay because it looks less stark than black, and if I had used black for everything I might have looked emo or something since the bottom part was lined and smudged out.

I used colored eyebrow mascara (yes there is such a thing) to make my eyebrows an orangeish light brown and also extended them in a way that I'd look perpetually grumpy like Ichigo, hahaha.

On to ToyCon! I'll be borrowing pictures from my friend Marko Happy-Hario and Peppy ninjapeps, which you can identify by their watermarks! The rest are just snapshots from my phone.

Since it is ToyCon, here are some toys: Pervert Woody harassing Mari Makinami

I'm happy I got to help with neko-panigiri Kat's toy haul by pointing her to Wakuwaku because I spotted this rare Nijiiro Kuma Kuma item and I remember she cosplayed that version of Ranka!

I always find the coolest random merch at Wakuwaku, you guys should check them out! Kuya Joma goes to Japan every now and then to stock up on items so there's often lots to see from figures, plushes, toys, J-music CDs, photobooks, doujins, dakimakuras, etc. They have a store at 2nd Floor FBR Arcade 317 Katipunan Avenue (the building with Yellow Cab)

Eren Jaeger = Ed Elric. Seems legit if you think about it.
Amputee, driven to their purpose by losing their mother, missing father who knows something about the mystery of the plot...

I snapped a very few pictures of merch to show my friends who weren't there to ask if they wanted anything.

Like this giant Cake the Cat plush!

Or these Doctor Who shirts from Geekerie Shirts! I managed to grab one of the last TARDIS shirts for my friend.

There was this amazing Red Skull bust at Maxicollector. But if you look at him at a certain angle he's like, "How YOU doin'?"

I snapped Miguel :iconmerkymerx: posing with it and added some stickers to make Red Skull more fab

Here is Miguel being super manly with Zod

I am so done with this

We were hoping to see some Man of Steel costumes and were stoked that it was Wreidyl as Zod and Monette as Faora! (Their page: MonetteAndWreidylCosplay on FB) We admire their work and they looked fantastic!

We also ran into Spider-Dan! It was only proper that they take a Spidey-style selfie, hahah

Before leaving the convention hall to take a break, I was lucky enough to run into Dan, who came all the way from Canada! She sent me a message on my Tumblr that she'd be at ToyCon and hoped to at least take a photo with me and we actually crossed paths in the chaos of that crowd! She was super cool and sweet and gave us MLP trading cards :D

Emperor Donrobert and Dom :iconweakman: as fanboying Chi-Fu, with Marko's elite photo editing skillzzzz
I suggested we start doing this pose with cosplayers and Dom and Marko have taken a LOT of shots like this HAHAH

I was subjected to it as well

Kevin of as the dashing Mr. Stark

Of course he had to get the Chi-Fu treatment

Even Ryan chaoslithe as Khal Drogo was not spared from it

Jewel of Chesto Shirts, however

...would not simply accept being made the Emperor

Spider-Dan vs. SpiDom-Man!

Then even MORE Chi-Fu pics!

This isn't even all of them okay hahahahahah

Here are some of my favorite costumes from Toycon!

Prince of Persia wall-jumping action!


Sage Kabuto by Markee shinobimarkee (look at the cute snake!) who was Orochimaru in my previous journal entry — Sasuke's Picture Diary

Khal Drogo and Jon Snow cosplay by Ryan and Fred!

Kawaiilossal Titan!

If I saw that looking down at me over the wall...

Coke-lossal Titan

I don't know anymore, you give it a name

We ducked into Starbucks to refresh ourselves because it was nearby and we were meeting more friends there. Got a frap so I could legitimately say "I ARRIVED 15 MINUTES LATE WITH STARBUCKS" The barista didn't ask for my real name and this is what they wrote on the cup. Awesome!

Since there is always a lot of us hanging out, we've made a game of trying to take self-portraits in which the whole group fits in the frame. This started due to doing this with viospace hahah! (We miss you, Vio bb~)

Luckily I didn't

This one kind of worked I guess

Charmie's version

Good guys with grumpy faces! Hahah!! So glad Alvin finally got to do this cosplay! When we watched the movie, we couldn't help seeing the resemblance, and we even gave him a Wreck-It Ralph toy on his birthday to encourage him to go for it! :lol:

Dom :iconweakman:, carrying his spanking new Play Arts Raiden around like a BJD hahahah

Aki Hana181 is Derp Strider. The number of decent pictures we have together is zero.

We were discussing new gadgets, and the 2013 Mac Pro came up. Then we noticed something beside us that looked a lot like it.

Dirk does not approve

Some food pictures just because. Spicy tuna salad is one of my favorite things.

Katsu curry ramen which made me inordinately happy because of the naruto (fishcake) which a lot of places don't bother with

Dinnerrrrrr group shot! It was our first decent meal of the day over which we did more hanging out and stalking Gerard Way on Vine

The previous photo was taken by everyone's favorite titan photographer, who can take overhead shots with ease because of his height. Kel got this picture of him doing his creeper smile.

And then I turned it into this:

Shingeki no Kyojin everywhere, man. Even my friend who wasn't cosplaying was jokingly asked if he was from SnK. So we put together this ghetto-ass 3DMG made of laptop bags and he took Aki's sword and I did this on my SnK app

Took more phone pics before leaviiiing. I'm not tall like Erving but I managed somehow. Except for the other half of Resh's face I'm sorry

With darling Charmie yaoiangel14

With my home bro and someone's hand

With Rayson (who has a new shirtttt), Erving and Pretty-chan

Before heading hope, we dropped by Jamba Juice because I wanted a smoothie, and when the guy at the counter asked for my name, his buddy who was making the drinks went up to him and said "DON'T YOU KNOW? That's Ichigo!!" Fun day!

Story of my life upon getting home. SOB. Post-con blues.
(The household disorder on the second frame is kind of accurate too because I left when I was in the middle of rearranging my room.)
Ah well, we'll see each other again soon enough!

The Prince' hair is super gorgeous! Reminds me of that Dove Men commercial. :>

Do you make money off of your cosplays? I was just wondering because I'm very passionate about cosplaying and I want to find ways to make money to buy more supplies (and food!)
nikkaroo Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013  Professional General Artist
Ichigooooooo. that was the first cosplay that I knew of yours haha wow it's been awhile :D
saber-kite Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Awww. We went on Friday to avoid the crowds. I think those who went on the first day did it mostly to shop (which we did). I got the TARDIS and Don't Blink shirts, plus some Yotsuba&! figures. Wish I went back the next day to see you guys. :P

And you have a picture of the Weeping Angel! I was told by the Geekerie guy that there would be one but I had to miss it. :P
yuzukichii Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013

DarkAngelGirl1 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
Looks like you all had lots of fun! ^-^
ninjapeps Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013
after Toycon, I'd be sort of disappointed to see serious Titan cosplays. maybe a shoot where everyone has a colossal titan mask regardless of what they're cosplaying. the more inappropriate, the better.

Gotta love food workers who are awesome enough to get in on the cosplays awesome. (I have a friend in WA who prolly would have done the same thing if he had been your barista. Total props to the person who marked your cup.)

I had to cover my mouth to keep from waking a sleeping baby because of all those fanboying Chi-Fu pics (ironically I have been using "I'll make a man out of You" to put this baby to sleep the past couple of weeks, ha!).

That Khal Drogo was freaking awesome

And I adore Erving.

Glad you guys had fun. Maybe I'll get lucky and have the money to actual go to a con. XD It'd be cool to find a way to run into you guys. I'd prolly cry though. You know, from the amount of awesome. =D
FieryTemper101 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2013  Professional Photographer
I've always wanted to go to a con, there's one nearby that is happening in a few months(Comic-Con) but when I went to get tickets they were already sold out! -cries-

I actually had the idea to cosplay him after watching the movie, but I had second thoughts. I gotta thank you for fueling the wrecking fire. :lol:

It was troublesome, but kind of funny at times! And nothing wrong with comments! I appreciate it!
