Akimatsuri 2014 Con Report

Well Akimatsuri happened and boy it was tiring but fun, apologizes to anyone who had to deal with an increasingly exhausted me in a boxhead. Akimatsuri is a fall season one day, anime festival and this year it was located in the heart of downtown Vancouver at Robson Square-Ice Rink...annndd it was the same day and area as the Santa Claus parade which lead to some very amusing moments of parade goers wondering "where did all these costumes come from?!?!?!" and both sets of Anna and Elsa cosplayers that showed up were being mobbed by kids for pictures. It was actually kind of cute to witness.

 This was my cosplay....meet the Dj duo & and the masters of electro mashups-fusions, the Djs from Mars. They actually do wear boxheads and never show their real faces ever. I was amused I was getting mistaken for a goomba and getting attention due to the cosplay's obscure nature. Plus I thought it was awesome and hilarious to waltz around downtown boxheaded. The boxhead wasn't that bad-hard to wear.



The festival was awesome...its mini con but still fun. Plus it was the perfect place to shop for that perfect Christmas present thats cute and unique....plenty of cute styles to go around. Got some very nice Frozen and Pokemon art prints to plaster on my sad, bare walls...and buttons!. Love this artist paddling something called "Moon Milk"....got stuff for myself and someone's christmas from this girl. Reminds of the found colour memories of Harujuku and kawaii stuff in tokyo. Plus her accessorys would be style appropriate in rave-clubbing setting. Check her out Here--> mnmlk.com
