Sakura-Con 2016, My 2nd Year Experience; Day 1


DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional photographer by any means. I understand that these pictures may not be up to par with everyone’s standards, but I do hope you enjoy them as much as I did. You can also click on the picture for a larger resolution.

This was the event I’ve been waiting all year long for! This past weekend was quite a busy one for me as I indulged myself in the pleasure of being surrounded by great cosplays, video games, and most importantly of all, ANIME! 😀 The weekend was filled with unique cosplays left and right so I’ve got plenty of pictures for you folks to look at. But this wouldn’t be too much of a blog post (especially a welcome back one) if I didn’t fill you guys in on the festivities that happened right? Be sure to continue reading if you wanna see more!

Final Fantasy 15: Brotherhood

With the exciting stream that took the world by storm yesterday there was an abundant amount of announcements that lead fans to become speechless. One of those being a 5 episode anime of FF15! This story will lead you through the events which lead Noctis to become friends/brothers with those in the game. You can check out the first episode here.

YYH X Bape

If you’re anything like me, you love a multiple number of things. Anime and street wear being two of those things. I recently discovered (a site where artists can post up their creations for sale) and discovered an artist who had done a Ichigo X Bape collab. Sadly she didn’t have anything Yu Yu Hakusho related, but I did reach out to her to see if maybe perhaps she was willing to create one. She responded promptly saying she could. When I saw the first rough draft I was pretty ecstatic, and then the final product comes along and I think “Wowwwwwwwwwwww! This is just as good as the actual anime!” It was only $10 to purchase and $15 if you wanted a frame to go along with it. So all in all, I would say I’m pretty satisfied with my latest pickup. 🙂 If you would like, you can visit the artist’s shop at this link .

Coping with Post-Con Depression

With Sakura-Con 2016 done and over with, Seattle natives and everyone else in the Pacific Northwest region are left to deal with PCD (Post Con Depression). All anime lovers know this feeling far too well since we choose to sit through the closing ceremonies of our beloved conventions. You leave the con with new memories, new merchandise, but not to forget new friendships that have been made.

With 2016 being my second year of attending conventions I’ve come to grips that it’s best to look forward to whatever other things you have lined up for the year. Those new friends you made? Hit them up and see if they want to hang out. That new merchandise you purchased? Look at it real good and try to remember what you were feeling when you made the decision to buy it. Post con doesn’t have to be depressing at all. I’m sure everyone has taken plenty of pictures of cosplayers and whichever activities you chose to do. As for me, I really enjoy editing photos after the convention, it can be time consuming but soooooooo rewarding when you’re finally able to post them up.

My pictures will be up soon! Don’t worry about that! Just got done with day 2 con pics. So with that being said my question to you is, would you want to see me break down the con day by day or have one HUGE post? Be sure to let me know!

Getting back to it

WordPress sure has changed it’s layout for their dashboard. But just wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be getting back into blogging soon enough! I hit a roadblock when it came to my creativity, even with photography. But with Sakura Con coming up and myself reading a ton lately, I’m happy to say that I’ll be getting back into it soon enough! Stay tuned for photos from Sakura con and my 2nd year experience!
