  • C.C. from Code Geass at Sakura-Con 2010

    Sakura-Con 2010 was my first cosplay con here in the USA. It was overwhelming to see at least half the attendees cosplaying. Most of the attendees wore some sort of otaku gear. This was a place where people not wearing anything otaku would stand out.

    I’ve been wanting to cosplay something more gothic lolita. Then C.C. from Code Geass had this particular costume in episiode 14, so I decided to go with it.

    I saw anime, gothic lolita, and game cosplayers. A noticable number of Lightning and Snow clones were walking around. It was pure eye candy, so many cosplayers and goodies to indulge your otaku heart’s desire: manga, Asian goods, anime body pillows, and authentic Japanese kimonos. Booths that caught my attention were Arda Wigs, Yuhared’s Corsets, and one booth that sold round stuffed animals.

    Instead of attending the panels I just chose to walk around the exhibitors’ hall. There were so many things to see, not to mention a lot of stuff that was sold out the first day. So many exhibitors had to restock, and almost all had empty shops by the end of the con. Unfortunately the corset shop ran out of my size before I got there. >.<

    Things that I don’t see in Philippine cons yet are steampunk shops. Mainly they sell ray guns, aviator goggles, and clip-on magnifing eyeglases, along with gothic lolita items. There were booths selling swords, around five if I counted right. You needed IDs to prove you were above 18 to buy one. Needless to say, I will attend next year!

    Special thanks to Mrs. Carla Mitchell for helping me with my costume.
