Ahh, so, tomorrow is my first convention of the year! Exciting! It's a first-year con, and I don't exactly have high expectations for it, but it's local, and it was cheap, and it's good to support first-year cons! DerpyCon, back in December, was a first-year con in New Jersey, and it ended up being super fantastic. Of course, I went with a group of friends, and I am doing tomorrow's con alone, so it might skew my opinion a bit.
I was torn most of the week about whether I wanted to go as Alois (Maid Version), or Himari from Penguindrum. I finished both costumes last month, but I haven't had a chance to showcase either them at a convention! I'm leaning toward Himari, though, because none of my cosplayer friends are into Penguindrum, so I might as well go as Himari while doing a con solo.
Ohhh, and my friend somehow talked me into going to Katsucon next month. I have no idea how she managed to persuade me. I already have so many goddamn conventions on my list for this year, yet I get talked into Katsucon, one big con I was purposely dodging? Ahhh, Bianca, you have no self-control! BUT, HOW COULD I RESIST WHEN A ROUND-TRIP PLANE TICKET WAS ONLY $140? Wahhhhhhh. I'm SUPER excited about it, though. And, thankfully, there is a long gap between Katsu and Anime Boston, so there's enough time to save up money again! brb dying poor because of anime cons.
