I had the pleasure of working with @kimurakoichi and her Digimon Frontier cosplay buddies during AnimeNEXT 2016 the other weekend, which was a dream come true honestly. Digimon Frontier is my personal favourite out of all of the Digimon seasons, and it was so amazing to actually see a full group of the main characters! It was such a pleasure to get to shoot with them, so I just had to share some of my personal favourites from the shoot up on here with you all! @kkouichikimura is the Tommy cosplayer, and the rest of the cosplayers don’t have Tumblrs or pages to my knowledge! If they do then I’ll update the description on here!! If you’d like to see some hi-res photos I have them up on my Flickr account!

And you can trace the lines through misery’s design
That map across my body

I’m kind of obsessed with the idea of Hedwig being an “exquisite corpse” of everyone whose influenced her in some way. Her mother, Luther, Tommy and Yizthak, more specifically. So! I used the only mediums I know well enough (cosplay, photography and photoshop) to explore that~

I conquered my first NYCC! I was there as Speed on Saturday with @neverforgetthedevilspretzels as Hulkling and @inuyoko as Prodigy. These were the best people to go to a convention this big and overwhelming with and I can’t thank them enough for letting me tag along! The experience was amazing and despite aching feet, sore backs, and shaking knees, I’m totally hoping to go again next year!  

Some highlights: We met a bunch of adorable Billys, an Eli, and a Miss America! We also recruited Ms. Marvel. It just felt right.  

Every time I saw a Wanda I would be like “Mom!” or if I saw a Pietro I would be like “Uncle Pete!” No one responded to it, and as we were walking around the Dealer’s Room, I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there was a Wanda who was like “Son!”. She gave the best hug, and was one of the sweetest Wandas I’ve ever met. 

And guess who was in the Artist Alley? Jim Cheung! We were able to get a picture with him on our phone and on his (there’s a photo of us on his phone and I can’t get over that), then we bought some prints and he signed them. I was over the moon, excited. 

More photos to come!
