Finally I found the time to write a few lines about the convention I attended at the end of August, the AniNite 2012 in Vienna, Austria.
I was a quest and part of the Cosplay Jury, there was a cosplay competition on every day of the convention.
I really enjoyed these 3 days, met many awesome cosplayers and nice people! And not to forget my friends who accompanied me, it was really fun!
I took 3 costumes with me, but I tried to stick with simple ones, because my suitcase had it's limits. I choose Vanille (FFXIII) and Rainbow Dash (MLP), because they don't need much space, and could bring them along easily.
And I decided to wear my half-finished Ysera costume too (without bodypaint, and without some missing parts), because I wanted to test the armor fastenings before I wear the full costume in October at MondoCon in Hungary.
There were so many costumes I really liked at the convention, and so many nice people I met, but sadly I don't have a photo from all of them, but I would like to share some with you. I don't know if all of the people on the photos have an account here on DA, but if you recognize anyone, please let me know, so I can put their names/account in here. =^.^=
Final Fantasy XIV Group
& her twin sister, and their 3rd member, the chocobo
They were my absolute favorites (I was in love *lol*) Not because I was playing FFXI Online for the past 3-4 years (FFXIV is very similar to that), and I am still in love with it. Their costumes were great, they really suited the characters they have choosen, and they had a really nice performance on the stage.
Aion. Unfortunately I don't have a photo from both girls, because I found only one of the sisters after the competition.
But both of them had nice costumes, and they were really kind too!
I loved these costumes too!
I was surprised that the cosplayer on the left was actually a girl. I didn't realized it till the first time she talked ^.^"
This was my favorite spot, because the weather was really hot, so we could chill a little
N7 armor ^.^ (I am still wondering if I should make a female version of this...)
Sometimes is just easier to take photos with others when I am NOT in a costume, lol.
Mini MLP Group!

FFXIII meets FFXIII-2
Ok, I am not a big fan of the Naruto series but
this kid was just awesome. He is only 12 years old, but he has got awesome theater skills.
I never tought I could enjoy a Naruto skit this much (the writer of the skit did a great job too of course).
This is not really a cosplay but
it was so cute! Her name is Sydney, and as you can see, she is a fox. And a really cute one (that's sooo girly I know, but I... couldn't... resist... ). Her owner was really good with performing. ^^
It's over 9000! Oh, and did I ever mentioned that trolls just love my Dashie cosplay? lol
(Ok, he was a nice troll
I was really surprised there were people who recognized me (I mean not the character, I mean... me)! =^.^=
The cosplay jury on the stage, preparing to announce the winners.
And who is the smallest one again?
Presentation on the stage
I hope my german grammar wasn't messed up too much, it's a long time since I talked that much german.
"We are lost..." "We aren't!" "Hey, is that a Mc'Donalds?..."
I really enjoyed this convention, and hope to be there next year too!
My next convention is MondoCon in Budapest, 13-14. October - I am looking forward to meet some of you there! =^.^=
Not that much time left to finish my costumes, sooo back to work! ~
