I was able to concentrate more on cosplay photos on day 3 of Anime Expo 2012. There were a couple events that I had attended as well.
Read on for what was in store for me on day 3.
The first event was the AX Fashion show hosted by Misako Aoki and Danny Choo. The show was opened with a performance by KYOKA, a young lady breaking into the voice acting profession. She is a singer and songwriter who is able to speak both English and Japanese.
After KYOKA’s performance, the fashion show began with Danny and Misako introducing the first designer dolldelight. Her designs were mostly inspired by the Lolita and Gothic Lolita style. Next was Galaxxxy with her vibrant colors and Harajuku style familiar to the fashion one would find in Akihabara. The final designer, Kapi-Bara-San, had a casual look to her style. Screen printed tees sporting her Kapi-Bara logo along with skirts and cute plushies. My fashion sense is not up to par but I thought this would be a fun event to attend. It’s always nice to see what creative minds are doing with their talents and inspiring to see that they’re putting it to use.
My next event was a Naruto live-action premiere. Thousand Pounds Action Company had made a live-action Naruto video before and this panel was to premiere the second installment of Naruto Shippuden: Dreamer’s Fight. The line to get in was pretty long. They had to show some of their previous work such as their Ultra Combo videos and their collaboration video with Capcom, Street Fighter x Tekken: The Devil Within until everyone was in the room to premiere part 2 of Dreamer’s Fight.
After the premiere, they announced an original web series they want to film called Clandestine: Follow the Path. Set in modern day, the heroine Adelene discovers unworldly fighting powers within her yet she does not know of her role as a matriarch of one of five different clans. Learn more about it on their Kickstarter. They are currently collecting donations to help fund the production of their series.
After those two events, I continued on with cosplay photos but was set back a bit when I realized my badge had fallen off. I retraced my steps and found a page of the schedule I had torn out and kept in my badge holder lying on the floor. I asked one of the con-goers that was sitting close by if he had seen a badge and he had told me that someone picked it up. She asked him what to do with it and he told her to bring it to one of the info booths. I might have gotten there a bit prematurely for my badge hadn’t been returned yet. They directed me to the pre-registration stations where Sean had helped me replace my lost badge.
There were a lot of great costumes on day three but I probably missed a lot more on the previous days. Check out our Facebook for a lot more photos from AX2012 day three and feel free to tag yourselves or people you know appropriately. Share with your friends and LIKE us if you want. ^_^
