ACEN 2013 - TERA and Ninja cosplay!

In case you haven't read the previous posts, this year for ACEN Sam, Nami, and I all did TERA cosplays. Sam was a Castanic female, berserker class, Nami an Elin, and I also dressed as a Castanic (no class specified, it was a last minute ordeal... I may do Slayer or Archer in the future, gotta make my weapon if that's the case). 

We all made our cosplays from scratch, IN 3 TO 5 DAYS.

THE PAIN.

NEVER AGAIN. I'm going to try  my best to allot more time for my future cosplays... I was swamped with work *cries*... But we made it, cuz we bad like that LOL...

Anyhoo, on to the pics!!! *throws confetti in the air*

Enjoy! =^_^=

ACEN 2013 - Convention Pics

ACEN this year was a lot of fun, more so than last year. It was scheduled for May again (it was April last year... so strange) which was perfect because the weather was really nice. Except for Saturday, it was ungodly HOT. Especially for us poor cosplayers =__=

This year was the first time I attended wearing cosplays totally made from scratch (I usually buy pieces here and there)... this was also the first year where my picture was taken so much, to the point that I couldn't do anything LOL! But I'm glad, that's exactly what I wanted. I really appreciated all the attention! My girls, Sam and Nami, also rocked TERA cosplays and received the same amount of love. We were so proud of each other!!!! =^_^=

The raves were cool; in my opinion the Friday night Synergy party was way better than the Saturday night Soap Bubble. I danced hard all Saturday night with my friends and sweated most of my make up off LOL... oh, and if I can help it I WILL NOT WEAR ANYMORE WIGS TO RAVES, IT IS ENTIRELY TOO HOT LOL   O__O

After the rave, I sat outside the Hyatt with my friends and did some people watching, appreciated the other congoers' cosplays. Didn't hit up any panels but no biggie, being outside was just as fun.

The game room was also decent, it was across the street at the Hilton again, run by my friend Kevin Fair and his company IPG (I Play Games). There were many retro games there as well as the typical such as DDR, Rock Band, etc. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend as much time there as I wanted, but next year!

Anyhoo, picture dump time haha... Enjoy.
