Kemi's Manga Day - What to Cosplay?


Kemi's manga day is getting closer and it's already on Saturday next week. I hope I can go there because one of my art teachers has been saying that we will have a mandatory lecture on that day during the manga day, which will result in that I can only be at the event 2 hours instead of 4 if even that. The lecture isn't the only hindrance. I should also have music classes during the coming weekend because I had none this weekend. So I've been thinking about asking for permission to be away from the class and the lecture because I really want to attend the manga day, which I have planned to attend quite some time ago. The class shouldn't be too much of a problem because our concert date is at the end of October and I can practice our songs at home. We'll see what happens but I do my best!

What I plan to cosplay at the manga day is still not 100% decided. It's shifting between these two guys.

Uryū Ishida from Bleach.

Keisuke Sannan from Hakuōki: Shinsengumi Kitan.
I want to cosplay Keisuke Sannan mostly because Shiro Samurai and Sacchan are gonna cosplay from Hakuōki. But the problem is that Keisuke Sannan takes a crap load of time to put on -including makeup- and I'm gonna need assistance with it from Shiro Samurai. Therefore I thought about Ishida but I remember having quite a boring time at Oulu Animeseminaari when both Sacchan and Shiro Samurai cosplayed from Hakuōki and I did not. I do not want to re-create that forever alone feeling I had there, simply no. Hence I could enter the cosplay competition with Ishida because I have done the cosplay myself.

So, I'm sort of stuck here between these two characters for entirely different reasons. May I ask what you guys would like to see me as? I'm fine with both of course, but yeah...


EDIT: I decided on *dramatic drums* ~

Why? Because I want to cosplay from the same series as the people I am attending the manga day with. No one wants to be forever alone simply.

Tracon 7 Summary

This year's Tracon was my first and it surely were as epic as Shiro Samurai had described it. I enjoyed it and would definitely visit again next year!

We started our trip to Tampere, Finland on Thursday because we went with the same car as some other congoers to the con who lived near us. So Thursday evening to Friday noon we were with these other congoers and slept at the same place as them. They were cool. Friday afternoon we finally checked in at the Omenahotel that I, Shiro Samurai, Ri-kun and Mira-kun were supposed to sleep at during the con. We derped and herped during the evening and slept all in the same big bed... like a boss. No, it's not what you think it is, really. Sadly Mira-kun couldn't really sleep and had been up early in the morning. Ri-kun I guess could sleep somewhat and Shiro Samurai went to the other bed saying that "someone" moved his legs all the time. This "someone" was me. Why? Well... I got almost samurai toes in my mouth!


We all woke up except Mira-kun at 08:00 in the morning local time, had some fast breakfast and changed to our cosplays. I cosplayed as Yamato "Matt" Ishida from Digimon Adventure and Ri-kun joined me as Ken Ichijouji from Digimon Adventure 02. Shiro Samurai went as Hajime Saitō from Hakuōki: Shinsengumi Kitan and Mira-kun decided to cosplay their own original character for the first con day. We spent the most of the day by being with each other. I and Ri-kun had to leave 12:00 to attend the Digimon meet at the con's park area. We went there and saw the other Digimon cosplayers (though some of them didn't arrive). We had some nice chats and took some group photos both inside and outside the con. It was great! After the con we went to Lidl and bought some unhealthy stuff there and afterwards we returned to the hotel to have some more evening derping there.


Saturday was our official Hakuōki group day. Which probably all of us were looking the most forward to and the ramen restaurant Hanabi that didn't exist anymore. We woke up at 09:00 did the normal routine and changed to our Hakuōki cosplays. Mira-kun cosplayed as Western!Okita, Ri-kun as Western!Saitō, Shiro Samurai as Isami Kondō and I as Keisuke Sannan. It was a blast to see all of the Hakuōki people both the old and the new ones at the con! When the whole group was together we went to Välähdys (photo studio) and had two group photos taken. Shiro Samurai and Mira-kun decided to take some photos with just them on. Before the con we had planned to have the "real" Hakuōki photoshoot during 15:00 and that time sadly, happened to be exactly the time when the other congoers we came with, had to leave the con. So I and Shiro Samurai joined in the group's first photos very quickly and afterwards we had to make a speedy farewell. We were late and was therefore in a hurry, the other congoers had been waiting for us. No good.

I'm sad that our leave was so sudden and unexpected. I would love to be with all you peeps longer and in more -drunk gay- group photos! Hopefully we can do this again in a future con when we're not in such a hurry!

Yamato "Matt" Ishida Preview

Hello all!

Because I've been in a hurry with making the costume, I sadly have no in-progress photos of it. But I can share the final results! Enjoy!

Cosplayer: Frozen Angel (Yamato "Matt" Ishida)
Photographer: Shiro Samurai

Bonus Pictures!

Having fun there Gabumon?
Herp derp!
Con excitement!
Short summary about the cosplay:

I had quite some help from mom on this one because I suck -right now- at sewing and my skills have rusted. Clothing is done by me and mom except the gloves that are bought because we were running out of time. The shoes are my mom's and the Gabumon plush is Shiro Samurai's.

Alright! Yamato is on his way to Tracon so see you all there! ~
