Semi-con report with PHOTOS.  
This year's Otakon wasn't as exciting as it was during the last two years. The anime they played were all old ones, and their musical guest wasn't as big as TMRevolution or L'Arc (though there are rumours that next year we might get AKFG). The cosplayers are also getting worse, in my opinion...is it cuz I'm getting old?

But the good thing was that I got to meet the director of the FMA movie/series XD and he signed my EVA artbook (cuz he directed episodes 5-9). I spoke to him in Japanese, but his translator made me speak in English O_o; wtf. I also got an autograph from Vic, the VA for Ed...but I really didn't give a damn about him...

I got to meet up with shinkuu, syerubi, laylah, jpegasus, miss_arel (whom I saw in line for the FMA autographs and recognized by her sketches XD nyahahah.), kytyngurl2, sailormac, vikki (by accident) and bard_linn.

Three of my four pics sold, and as it turned out, nobody wanted the "Unit 503" pic XD; (that's the EdWin).

But anyway, you guys must be waiting for the photos!

Please tell me if you do not want your photos shown here, and I will take them down.

FMA STASH (I was disappointed that I missed both FMA photoshoots...oh well)

Awesome Armstrong.

Yours truly. I didn't actually have the flu, but the thing in my hand is a plushie of a 1,000,000x magnified flu microbe. So cute XDD I also have a couple of photos of my sister selurnis sneezing out the flu virus that I need to turn into a gif.

My sister as Roy XD

Greed and Martel (laylah and miss_arel, respectively)

Very creative. At first I was wondering what was that Roy doing running around like that...

Close-up of the note on his back.

And, I saved the best for last.

Yes, during the con, my sister and I were actually dressed up as FUNERAL PERCESSION VERSION of the military uniform. Hence the skirt, the longer jacket, and the black sash across our chests. We were rather surprised and disappointed that no one recognized what we were trying to do. (Heck, people even thought I was Roy with a skirt or just a bad Hawkeye cosplayer who didn't get her hair dyed...) *sigh* Hughes, so that's the extent of how people remember you... *snugs the Hughes-squish*

We found a very good Hughes cosplayer to lie down for us.

Honouring Hughes. (those high heels hurt like hell after more than eight hours of walking about in them)

More FMA photos could be found here.

(Awesome pictures, though. I wish I could have gone, but hey, I went to a wedding shower and had delicious cake and ALSO had my picture taken eighty million times. XD)

Very nice pics, I really like that Armstrong as well~ Amazing. 8D

On another note, the word alchemized is so not cool. @_@

Bleh... In most cases I have to agree that cosplay has been rather crappy lately.
腹蛇: WTF fat cat.youkofujima on August 23rd, 2005 01:41 am (UTC)
That Armstrong was so awesome XD the only thing he's missing now is SPARKLES XDDDDD

It's been really annoying this year. Tons of Anakin and even Batgirl cosplay, wtf... This is OTAKON. Not...I don't know...

It's so cool to see so many FMA cosplyers. The last con I went to, I only got a pic of one ;__;

Nice costumes! I want a military uniform too~~

By the way, was the pic your sister standing in suppose to be intended? Fire extinguisher right beside Roy...^^;;
腹蛇: It's going to be okay.youkofujima on August 22nd, 2005 09:58 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was. XD We were going to let someone else take a photo of us and then we noticed that there was a fire extinguisher right next to us.

Thanks for liking the photos^^

Wow, a Dante cosplayer! Very nice. And that's gotta be the best Hoho-papa cosplay I've seen.

You did an awesome job on the Ross cosplay. :D
腹蛇: It's going to be okay.youkofujima on August 23rd, 2005 01:48 am (UTC)

Ah! I didn't know you got pictures of our Dante <3 She was wonderful wasn't she? XD At Fullmetal Fantasty her gown took up 3 seats.

And the pantless Taisa who was also in our group was just adorable. >> I wanted to take her hoooome. Because she sang pretty~

Along with the rest of the Amestrismunculus <3
腹蛇: It's going to be okay.youkofujima on August 23rd, 2005 02:28 am (UTC)
I had to get a photo of her cuz she just looked awesome as Dante X3
Kasumiedw4rd_elric on August 23rd, 2005 02:27 am (UTC)
Were you cosplaying as Riza, or Ross? You looked a lot like Ross, but by how you tagged along your sister as Roy, I'm not exactly sure. ^^;
腹蛇: It's going to be okay.youkofujima on August 23rd, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
It's in the notes (or the LJ cuts) that I put. I was Maria Ross. Note the hair and the mole.
