Nekocon 2013 ~ Equestria Girls

Love it or loathe it, My Little Pony: Equestria Girls was a thing. I ended up watching it specifically for a stint on the Greatest Movie EVER! podcast, but God help me, I kinda liked it. Helps that I’m a fan of the show proper. But even though the designs were a bit goofy and the tie-in merchandise is hideous, I did enjoy it. Certainly enough to cosplay from it.

Granted, my main reason for picking Sunset Shimmer (I’m more a Rarity girl) is because I already had her jacket from another costume. Making the skirt and top was the work of a weekend, and finding the rest was relatively easy. So I got together with Michael and Maya for a little EQG group.

Now, I’d told myself beforehand that I was gonna go and find me a Princess Twilight Sparkle to steal a crown from. I didn’t think I would find one, but by God …

... she walked right past my table!

I got a lot of compliments for this one — thanks very much! It’s a fun one to do, especially with those badass boots. I’m sure she’ll be out and about later (primarily because apparently people’s kids are asking to see her!?!?).

Not sure about other MLP:FiM costumes … I’ve considered Daring Do and/or Vinyl Scratch, but we’ll see. Too many costumes on my list already.

AMA 13 ~ Those Costumes

So Anime Mid-Atlantic is, for all intents and purposes, my home con. As far as I can remember, I haven’t missed a year, and I’ve been running their karaoke competition since 20*mrph*.  So I’m always glad to be back, and I’m always glad to be in a position to do new cosplay of my own, AND take photos of other people’s cosplay.

First up is the latter, simply because there’s so much. If you see yourself on here and want to grab your photo, go for it — and if you have a site you’d like me to link to, let me know and I’ll do so.

Onward!

Thanks to everyone who stopped and let me take their photos.  If you would like even more, you can pop over to Yunmao’s blog (Japanese only) for pages and pages of stuff.

I’ll have more entries coming soon, covering my own activities there, so stay tuned. Maybe I can actually get this stuff done before my next con!
