Anime Boston..... okay, it might be the only one outside of Otakon I go to, but AB just has spirit I never got at Otakon. I feel like the AB staff really cares about making AB special.... such as bringing their mascots alive, the cosplay music videos they do, and Pat D and Adam Ferraro plain rock. Again, I never been elsewhere, but it feels like it has so much spirit there.
Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.
Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.
