Okay as you know i said that I had mt thought of my first eastcoast con. Here it is......

Now doing the cons for only a year so far I have only been on the westcoast . And when I found out I would be going to AXNY I was kinda scared. Cause I heard that people were rude and wouls say mean comments to you and they dont like cosplay and such stoopid rumor gosip crap like that. But I went there and saw it for myself and this is what I felt and saw.

I saw the "TRUE" fun way to cosplay over here I have already seen the bad sid of it and all the "head up their asses " additudes that engulfs some cosplayers. NO one there I talked to and hung out with was like that. And they actually give you compliments instead of rude comments or making fun of you or judging you on the outfit you made!Plus you guys have the "right additude" to me on the masqurade night. Yeah they all start out hectic at first but then you all come together and you guys were all hyped up and the good energy of the cosplayers and the con was indeed so refreshing to see! Everyone was actually into it! Instead of crowds I have seen at other cons where they act like they all got bitten by Resident Evil zombies and are all "Ughhhhhhhh Staaaaaars" meaning they are all dead. But if this is what it is like, I wouldnt mind going over that way again.^_^
Now I would all like the ones who read this not to jump the gun and take in mind i do say its my 1ST eastcoast con and, I know that all cons in general are not always good or bad I am just reflecting on the experience I had there my little view on this and this is not a " All I HATE are west coast cons and Blah blah blah ....crap crap crap...........gossip so be mature grow up and just read it carefully NE?

Yay! For East Coast Cons! ^_^
All da cons I've been to have been on the East Coast and it's basically the same attitude where ever you go ^^
Ofcourse there are a few party poopers here and there~

I'm planning to go to AX2004, I REALLY wanna see what Cali is like!
Finances are too low this year with all the east coast cons I'm doing, but after 4 months of Co-op next fall, which should give me about $20,000, I'll be set ^_^

And Kitty, now that you've had your first east coast con, try to come to the biggest... Otakon.

I have a theory that cosplayers with their "head up their asses " are like that because that's just their natural personality. I don't think costumes have the magical ability to turn a shy and humble person into someone with a big head. If they weren't in costume they'd find something else to stroke their ego.

I have seen one case where the bad side of cosply did turn them into a "Head upp their asses " person. But i do belive it was the addditude from cosplay not the costume.

yeah there are some people out there that just arent nice, and it has nothing to do with the costume...just them @_@

Oh my..dark side of cosplay...time for Kotenka to whip out his Hikari no Houken and Orphen to release his Hikari no Hakujin and maybe Hayato to utilise his plasma sword!

lol.....but certain dark side costumes are good (Dark Squall, Black Mai ^^). Its just those who try to ruin cosplay for others with their bad tempers, attitudes, and such, those are the creeps to watch out for, and to send the Cosplay.com bodyguard after >D

Commandement 2.5: Thou can insult another cosplay, only fromthe comfort of your home browing images, knowing that yours is better as long as 2 witnesses agree to it. :D
