My Dream Anime Con

When I bought my ticket online for Anime Evolution, I used Eventbrite. That was just a few weeks ago. The process went smoothly and I had a good experience with them. By buying my ticket online, I didn’t have to pay at the door. It was nice because I bought my ticket early and got a discounted price. I printed my ticket out and just showed it to the people who organized the event and registered on their site.

 

Alright, my dream con includes the one and only… EIICHIRO ODA, the creator of One Piece! I would love to meet him… That would be a dream come true.

I would cosplay as a One Piece character (not sure who yet) and I would want to spend the con with all my AniBlogger and AniTwitter friends. (You guys know who you are… ^^) I want all my good friends to be there too. It would be good if it was a private event that only my friends and I can attend so no one has to wait in line… Am I being too selfish? (Well this is a dream so…)

I would also want Hiroshi Kamiya, the voice actor of Izaya Orihara, to be there. I want him to talk in Izaya’s voice for me. I also want to meet the Japanese voice actor of Deidara from Naruto Shippuden. I’ll definitely need English translators there.

More people I want to meet are my favourite cosplayers, like Yuegene Fay. I want to take pictures with everyone. It would be nice to have a photographer who just follows me around and takes a bunch of candid and staged pictures LOL.

In the last two anime events I went to, I did not find a lot of anime merchandise I was interested in. That’s why in my dream con, I want a lot of One Piece and Izaya merchandise. I want cheap prices please… Can the ticket prices be free for everyone too? LOL.

A restaurant or food stalls would be nice. I always buy food nearby when I attend anime events but they’re always outside the convention location. It would be super convenient if there was a restaurant… Not cafe because that’s not filling enough. Real food!

The location should be in… Japan. Then after the convention I can explore Japan with my friends hahaha. I want to go to Ikebukuro and all those anime attractions.

Of course we need music so there should be our favourite bands performing there, the ones who sing anime openings and endings. Flumpool is my favourite Japanese band. I want Ryuta to sing in Chinese for me. ❤

What else… I want props outside and inside the convention building for photo-taking. Stuff like a cool-looking background or the Thousand Sunny (lol) would be good.

Oh! I also want a bunch of prize draws where everyone gets a raffle ticket and there are multiple prizes to be won. Prizes like… authentic nendoroids and One Piece flag, etc. Okay, that’s all I can think of for now.

Hope you liked this post!

Vampire Knight – Yuki Cross Cosplay

Yuki Cross is a character from the anime, Vampire Knight. I actually don’t like Yuki but I don’t try to limit myself to only cosplay characters I like.

Funny story: I got mosquito bites when I was doing this. My blood was literally sucked when I was cosplaying for a vampire anime.

Don’t worry, I have good pain tolerance.

Week Recap

Sindy at Infiinty inspired me to do this post (with gifs) after I read her’s. Coincidentally, I’m drinking red tea as I type this blog post. This was not intentional.

I sneeze so much now and I frequently have a runny nose. I am not sick. Something triggers it, like dust in an old shop or a woman’s strong perfume. After the triggering event, I don’t stop sneezing for weeks. I should probably see a doctor.

Well, I’ve reached 900 followers so thank you for all the love, kindness and support. It’s a rewarding experience when younger girls open up to me about their experiences with cyber bullying, post-secondary goals, and one girl even sent me her graduation photo! I felt so touched…

I’ve developed many meaningful friendships thanks to this blog. I talk to some friends almost every day on my social media. The AniTwitter/AniBlogging community makes life so fun. The power of the Internet is amazing because it brings people together.

My Week in Pictures

More like two weeks. I have lots more photos but I’m just going to post these ones.

January 11

I watched One Piece Film: Gold. It was awesome! It was really funny and Robin made hand puns. Brook made alive jokes again and Zoro was as strong as ever! Also Lucci and Spandam made their appearance which made me so happy. The message of the film (from my interpretation) is that gold/money can’t buy you everything. Friendship is more important!

My Month in Pictures

The month hasn’t ended yet, but I didn’t want to wait. >< This post is more personal because normally only my friends IRL see them, but I wanted to be more intimate with my blog? That sounds weird LOL. I take lots and lots of photos every month, so these are just more recent ones.

Class was outside today

Food Adventures (long post)

One Piece is one of my favourite anime because of the friendship the Straw Hat pirate crew have. As I was thinking of this, I thought about my own crew. During the school year, I see my friends almost everyday, but here are some of the times we ate food together.

2014

I didn’t start eating out with my friends until near the end of Term 1 of first year University. We got Qoola and Menchies around campus to celebrate hard work and the end of Econ 101.

2015

In Term 2 of first year, we tried out Bubble Waffle Cafe near campus.

We also got drinks every Friday for our Econ 102 discussion. One of the places we went to was Tim Hortons. My friends got the drinks because I had class before discussion. We also did this in Term 1. For V’s 19th birthday, we went to Kyo Korean BBQ and Sushi House.

Summer 2015

During the summer after first year, we tried to meet up a lot. I couldn’t make it to a lot of the hang outs, but here are two I went to. We went to Cactus Club and Mimibuloveme.

September 2015

In Year 2, we hung out a lot more so I can post photos for every month. Before school started, there was an event held by one of the clubs. Since my friends were leaders for the clubs, I signed up for the event. Even though I didn’t get my friends as my leaders, I had fun. Three of us went to Blenz near campus.

On the bus ride home from school on a different day, I had another bad experience with creepy men. I was still upset the next day but A bought me a drink from Tim Hortons on campus to cheer me up.

October 2015

For my 19th birthday, we went to Kyo. Cotton candy was being handed out on campus so we got some.

November 2015

We decided to try out fried chicken at Flipside at our school, UBC, for the first time. Later that day we got Starbucks on campus. A, G, and I decided to make Fridays our food days so we went to Danbo for ramen.

December 2015

We celebrated the holidays by eating out at Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle. V treated us to cream puffs at Beard Papa’s later that day. We were on our winter break during this time.

January 2016

We went to Shishinori to celebrate A’s 20th birthday. Later that month we went to Banana Leaf to celebrate J’s 20th birthday.

February 2016

We went to Seoul Cafe to celebrate G’s 20th birthday. We also had dim sum at Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant on a weekend morning.

March 2016

A, G, and I got free pocky on campus. The crew and I went to Red Robins.

April 2016

A, G, and I went shopping for J’s birthday gifts (different J) but we made a stop at Starbucks. The next day, we went to Morak Korean Restaurant to celebrate J’s 20th birthday.

On the last day of Year 2, we went to Pearl Fever Tea House near campus to celebrate. During our summer break, we went to Snowy Village for bingsu.

May 2016

We went to Chau Veggie Express to celebrate V’s 20th birthday. Later that day we went to Off the Grid Waffles.

June 2016

Summer school started for A, J, V, and C. I didn’t have summer school but I did have to go to campus for my lab. A, J, and I went to Pearl Fever.

When G got her N for driving, we went to Sekai Udon Bar to celebrate. On another day on campus, my friends and I got bubble tea at the new place. We got the drinks on the first day it was served. We also went to Panda night market and got different foods. We also had shaved ice from Icy Bar.

It’s almost the end of July and I haven’t seen my friends much this month. We were going to eat but I was too ill so it was cancelled. Two of my crew members are out of the country right now but we will see each other more when they come back.

Before I became friends with the crew, I had not gone to most of these restaurants before. It’s kind of like Luffy’s crew. If it weren’t for Luffy, the Straw Hats probably wouldn’t have travelled to so many islands.

The most important thing is to have fun with my friends

I just wanted to thank my friend, Carmen, for making my headband for me. I would also like to thank my friends for coming with me to the Japanese festival. I couldn’t get a wig on time but that’s okay!

I had fun! I also learned that I could never and would never make a Facebook Page for myself. I’m not a big social media person after all. In the end, staying home watching “Detective Conan” while eating vanilla ice cream is the best.

So I cosplayed as Haruhi Suzumiya from the anime, “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.” I bought this figure and it was really cheap for $8. I say it was really cheap because it comes with two other faces (you can change them), and different arms and fingers. You can customize her in several ways.
