Happy New Cosplay

As some of you might have known and as all of you might have guessed, I like cosplay. I like seeing cosplay, critiquing cosplay, planning for it, and all. I just really like the idea and aspect of it, and the fact that people have gone from mere hobby to professional grade is also impressive to me. For me, it's something I enjoy but am really reluctant to do. However, I'm pretty okay at closetplay. One of my newest ventures is this guy:

Yup, the kouhai-touching, sister con, middle child of the Nase family: Hiroomi Nase from KnK.

And as I've stated before, the show itself plateaued for me, but the characters were overall really well-written, interesting, and dynamic. Again, this is another show where I pretty much liked every single person. And Hiroomi goes beyond that exception. Serious though he is, when he needs to be, his day-to-day is actually, well, pretty much a goofy teenager.

One of the things I absolutely admire about him is his excellent taste in scarves, and I, also being a scarf enthusiast, decided to buy his mostly for fashion purposes (strangely enough cosplay came as an after thought once I got it).

2014 So Far: A Month in Anime

Happy new year, as late as I am to say it. This year has kicked off into a pretty heavy month of anime for me. I've been trying to get back into some old favours, so I'm reading books that I bought during and started before my trip. The games that I'm really into are on hold or are being dragged into forever. So what have I been watching? I'll try to get to the quick of everything.

A Trip to The Distillery in Savannah

Towards the tail end of my trip, Andy and I went to The Distillery, which wasn't too far of a walk from the museum. It was about to rain hard, and it was getting dark, but a good, solid meal before walking back to our side of town never sounded like a better idea.

Honestly, I really liked the atmosphere. It was hearty and full of people. It felt alive in its own way. What made it better was that they had some black and white shows on (mostly The Three Stooges), so I was really having a good time. The waitress was a tall, lanky little thing, but she was really chill to talk to and pretty prompt with our drinks.

Our food, though, took a while to get to us. It took about an hour or so? Andy and I were watching The Three Stooges, and it was about two or three episodes before we finally got our food. We were hardly keeping track of the time, but it's a bad sign when your patrons start to get really tired. When we got our food, it looked amazing. Andy got the Hard-Hearted Hannah, and I got the Prohibition Po' Boy.

I was incredibly disappointed.
