I Think I'm Getting My Groove Back...

After PMX, I felt burned out by seeing in many cases the same cosplay over and over again, but I think I'm getting my groove back. Now to think about what cosplay project I can convince my cousin to work on...maybe upgrade my Meito Anizawa cosplay? I really should not have used a turtleneck meant for winter for AX...

Other ideas:
Kululu from Sgt. Frog (baseball shirt and hat)
Minoru Shiraishi from Lucky Star OVA (from live action Lucky Channel)
one of the Old Men from Akihabara in SHANGRI-LA (not the loli guy)
Dan from Bamboo Blade (if only I had the hot girlfriend to go with the character)

I'll probably be more inspired if I attend another cosplay event before AX...definitely wanna scale back this year as I think a hotel upgrade is better use of my AX funds than costumes...

Any other ideas?

Well It's Olympic Season...

While I prefer the Summer Olympics to the Winter Olympics, it's always interesting to see how national teams dress when they arrive to the event...Okay, so this post is not about cosplay, but I think I have a little better insight about how the Japanese take uniforms seriously. Apparently, the one snowboarder who wasn't in uniform was banned from some arrival activities...

I hope the those who are taking to the luge track play safe during these games, and go Team USA.
