Requiemart and I attended Anime Boston yesterday, unlike last year where we both attended but only sort of. Last year we both helped out at different booths (she was at Animadness and I was at Toyslogic ) so we didn’t really get to do a whole hell of a lot else. This year attendance at Anime Boston was strictly for fun or maybe a bit of sport.
These were two of my favorite cosplayers, I mean I love Joker but this guy was really selling it haha and Poison Ivy’s lukewarm reception of him was perfect.
Tons more pictures behind the cut
This girl cosplaying Dead Master was the only Black Rock Shooter cosplayer I found yesterday, I was honestly kind of surprised there were not more. I was really impressed with this girl’s cosplay and her bad ass scythe.
I had seen these three wandering around a few times with an even larger group of Sailor Moon characters but only managed to get a picture of these three together. I felt really bad for Sailor Uranus who I did not get a picture of but whose boots looked to be the most painful footwear ever.
Cute Chii of Chobits cosplayer with Atashi plush and her picture book.
Adorable Mei-lin cosplayer from Cardcaptor Sakura, thought she was Kotoko from Chobits at first glance ^^; I never really noticed how similar their character designs are until yesterday.
A trio of Magic Knight Rayearth cosplayers their costumes were amazing, all they were missing was a Mokona. Umi on the left, Hikaru in the center and Fuu on the right; I believe this is one of their final release outfits but it has been a very long time since I have read/watched Magic Knight Rayearth so my recollection is foggy. I think I may have just had a soft spot for this trio because Zilla recently cosplayed at a local event as Hikaru and won first prize.
I saw a fair number of Harley Quinn cosplayers this year, I think this one might be favorite though because of the giant mallet.
I even found an Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn, it just kind of reminds me that I still can’t find anyone willing to do the Arkham Asylum Harley Quinn’s pullip costume.
Another Chii cosplayer, one great thing about Chii is she has a lot of different outfits so even if you see a dozen different Chii at a convention it’s very rare to see them all wearing the same outfit.
I wasn’t quite sure who he was at first but this Deadpool cosplayer was pretty awesome, the couple of times I bumped into him he was always doing something hilarious like moonwalking.
I saw quite a few different Yoko this year, I only saw one Nia though sadly I never managed to catch up to her for pictures 😦
In fact, there were so many Yoko cosplayers that I managed to get one in the background while I was photographing another one.
There were a few other Yokos that I neglected to get pictures of ^^;
And the swag, well not quite all of it but at the same time I didn’t buy all that much this year ^^;
The one thing I had really, really wanted was the Black Rock Shooter figma. I had a bit of a hard time finding it, I finally got it from Toyslogic- it was their only one. I had been wanting the Dead or Alive Ayane figure for a while, and I managed to find it for a reasonable price so I thought why not?.. Do I regret not getting more? Not really I could have bought more but there was not all that much that I wanted (the maid Asuka figure-which I didn’t find and the animation version of Dead Master which I found in a few places but was too high in my opinion) and there is kind of a Volks lottery at the end of the month, which I need to conserve funds for. I neglected to photograph them but I did also get an Anime Boston tshirt and two art prints. This year was my first time actually venturing into the Artist Alley, I found a print of Harley Quinn playfully undressing and another of a group shot of Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and Catwoman. I need to take pictures of them once I get them framed and hung up (I already framed the group picture).
