If you live somewhere on the east coast, you might now about Anime Boston, which is (I believe) the largest anime convention which goes on on the east coast~ I went today with a friend of mine (it's actually a three day event- but I was reluctant to spend $60 in order to be able to attend -.-), so we went just today. I though I'd write a bit about the experience~
I only had decided to go about a week before the actual con, so I didn't have much time to prepare a decent cosplay. Since I had a pink wig, I decided to go as Lucy/Nyu from Elfen Lied~
|This was after one of the horns fell off ;A;|
I was planning on taking a bunch of photos of everything, but.... laziness xD So I did a bit of shopping at the many booths which they have, so here's the stuff I got if you're curious~

|Memo pad, pencil, and pin~|
I kinda spent too much money at the convention... hehehe... but I'm sure that other people spent more xD So it's okay.
I do wish that I had looked around more carefully though, because first, I thought that it ended at 12 (which it didn't- it ended at 4 -.-), and second, because there were a bunch of different events going on which I was oblivious to :/ (like a plushie workshop, which, I don't know what it consisted of, but it sounds cute ;n;).
I'll be going next year with a friend of mine and we're doing some fancier cosplay, so I plan on going all three days and hopefully this time I won't miss out on as much xD
I did have quite a bit of fun though- while waiting for the shops/booths/dealers to open, we sat and watched Madoka Magica in some room, which was fun c: Then afterwards we watched some other anime, but it was strange .-. So, despite not having a ton of time, what time I had was great, and I definitely look forward to going next year ^.^ If any of you are ever in Boston, and are an anime fan, I highly suggest you go~ It's great c:
And now here are some photos of my makeup/hair for the cosplay, which I think turned out better than the costume its self xD
|This was before the ears fell off xD|
And with that, this post is concluded~ I hope you found it interesting x3 Next year I'm planning on doing more elaborate cosplays, but I have yet to start :P
Have you guys ever been to anime conventions? How were they?
