View Full Version : The Black Chocobo's Take on AB 2003

(This is the same as my AB forum post...)

Thanks, Anime Boston. The con was a great time! I cosplayed as a black chocobo (from Final Fantasy 7) with a guitar, and I played the theme song at the Masquerade. I even won an award! It was my first time cosplaying, and I really enjoyed it. I'll definitely cosplay again.
The attendees were great. I met some new friends and was able to spend time with some old friends. The atmosphere was embracing and festive as one would hope at an anime con.

The dealer's room wasn't huge, but was a good time and had some key items (for me) nonetheless. I bought a Bebop soundtrack (Vitaminless), a Hellsing poster, some POCKY (whoo!), and an Ein. However, the Nausicaš of the Valley of Wind soundtrack was GONE by the time I got there. Also, they ran out of Anime Boston T-shirts before I could get one! Anyone want to send one to me? :-)

I really enjoyed the con, and I hope to see you folks at cons in the future. In the meantime, don't hesitate to contact me -- I'd like to hear from you. I likely won't be able to respond for about a week because I'm going to Puerto Rico for the rest of vacation, but I'll get to it. Peace, love, and anime.

Thanks, friends! I intend on bringing my guitar to any and all anime conventions that I go to. It started with AXNY, and happened again at Anime Boston. Hopefully I'll play something at Otakon as well.

If I met you at Anime Boston, please contact me and remind me who you are...!

(I don't have an AB shirt yet, but perhaps I'll just order one online...)

We loved you at AXNY too :) Ever consider coming out to AX in Anaheim, CA? :-) Thanks again for performing last-minute at AXNY.

I loved AXNY! It was my first convention and it succeeded in showing me how wonderful anime conventions can be. I've thought about going to AX, but I really can't justify flying or driving from Massachusetts to Cali for it. If I had some relatives there, I could stay with them for the week before it and then attend the con, but that isn't the case. I bet I'll go anyway someday, though...

Hey Alex, remember me? I was the ancient one sitting next to you that night. You Definitely rocked. Did you hear me cheering you on? Awesome!

Indeed, I do remember you, ancient one. You had a cool costume. Are you going to Otakon?

I'm not sure yet. I'm still waiting to find out if anyone may be willing to let me travel with them there cause sometimes being a college student is hard, especially with the bad economy we're all facing up here in Connecticut.
