Anime Expo 2010: Nabeshin!

Anime Expo Day 1 106 (600x800)

Without the AX escort, I thought he was a cosplayer...and yet that was not my most embarrassing moment during Anime Expo 2010...

Day 1 of Anime Expo was spent in the easiest cosplay I've done, wataNABE SHINichi.  Although it was the easiest, it was the most effective...After watching the opening ceremonies, I had lunch at the ESPN Zone (see previous post about my steak lunch there).  Apparently from behind, the afro was really convincing to the point that a girl coming from behind me asked for my autograph...Then a couple other people wanted my picture...

Of course I cosplayed on Nabeshin on Day 1 as I was planning to catch his panel later in the day.  I wasn't sure what to expect at the panel...At PMX last November (see previous entry), it was all about how to put on a kimono...At this year's AX, it was a general Q&A filled with humor (hopefully someone got a video of the rest of the panel...).

After the panel, there were many opportunities to get pics of cosplayers wearing red suits and blue shirts...at least one came prepared for battle...

Now can you tell the difference between a Nabeshin cosplayer and a Lupin III cosplayer?

How about now?

Now it's fun to find a Guest of Honor roaming the con and is happy to oblige when you ask for a picture.  It's more fun when a Guest of Honor, like DJ No+Chin, asks for your picture...

Well that was my Nabeshin cosplay adventure at Anime Expo 2010...up next is a recap of anime I watched during Anime Expo...sometimes it's more fun to watch with an audience...don't worry, the post will be brief, but I wanna document it as I may forget which ones I didn't like...So you won't wait long for more pics...
