I have been incredibly busy with procrastinating (and cosplay) in the past weeks and woke up to the enormous shock of realizing I still have a website to run?!
It's amazing how quickly time passes when you got nothing to do. But never the less I'm back today to tell you about my adventures at C90!
C90 DAY 1
As I was working three out of three days at the event I wasn't able to stay outdoors for the whole day (Bless, I would have not made it out alive if I did), so I only got around two hours of potential meet and greet, photo and general free time during the event.
As the east hall cosplay area was closed off this time, it was a bit difficult to navigate through the crowds and actually find a spot outdoors, but given what I heard from photographers us cosplayers weren't the only ones thrown off by this.
I still had a great friday and even got some nice first pictures taken!

C90 DAY 2
C90 DAY 3
But. I. Made. It.
And it was worth it.
I got to take a ton of pictures, meet a lot of amazing new people and even a photographer from AkiCos, who I got to do a mini photoshoot with!
I know they probably cause some of you to jump from your seats, but I was aiming for that. (Sorry?)
It's been a bit hard for me lately but I finally learned to embrace my weird site and just do whatever I feel like and I think those two shots catch exactly that (and the character) quite well. My friends were staring quite fascinated when I took out needle and thread to sew through my own hand, though I want to apologize to those who worried a little about it. (It's pretty much harmless since the skin on your palm is pretty thick and you can barely feel any of it)
For those wondering: The supposed 'stitches' on my arm and neck are tattoo sheet stickers that you can order at print shops, buy at Tokyu Hands and print yourself or simply buy off amazon. Though they are easy to put on and replace, they are harder to get off when needed and I was stuck with them for at least two days ofter which owned me some weird stares at the grocery store.
I am looking forward to more events this year (especially this summer - fall), photoshoots and hanging out with my newly won friends.
And to sum it all up I want to recommend Comiket to my foreign friends who might be visiting Tokyo around new years. Maybe not the queues, but the experience and the difference between the western and the japanese cosplay scene that they will encounter.
