OMFG I KNOW YOU!!! I have a pic of me and my gf with Ian up on my wall-- he makes an excellent Roy, btw. And I definitely have pictures of you somewhere from last year's AB. (Sorry if that all sounded rather creeper-ish) xD
Not creepy at all, (especially since I saved two of your cosplay pics to my cosplay folder). xD I friended you on Facebook not too long ago, if you didn't realize, I was the one who wasn't sure if I knew you, but I loved your Royai cosplay pics anyway. I recently found you on DA and watched you when I recognized you.
And yeah, Ian and I met each other at AB, and we ended up becoming close that weekend, as you can kinda see, we got a little cuddly. I took him to prom two weeks later. XD We're actually having a movie night this Saturday, and it's gonna be weird because it will be the first time we see each other in our normal attire.
omg! That's so cool xD small world, huh? And now I definitely recognize you-- I've been getting "odd" friend requests from cosplayers lately who claim to have seen me in various locations. I just accept them all (since we obviously have similar interests) and sort out their identities later.
Anywho, you going to AB this year? (probably a stupid question) xP
I see, I see. I think we eventually figured out that we did meet each other, but since you weren't in cosplay, I don't remember you. Yeah, I've retired the Hawkeye uniform, partially because it was my friend's, and partially because of my pickiness, I feel I didn't do her justice. All my friends were like, "LIES, you were TOTALLY the best Riza there." But it makes me sad because I know that's crap, because there were good Rizas there who could actually stay in character, and looked like her. xD I wasn't fishing for compliments, I was realizing my weaknesses and deciding to play off my strengths. /rant I am sticking to Martel for now. I do her much better. I should get a photoshoot of her some time. None of the pictures I found of her were just what I wanted.
Not sure. The con lands on Easter and I come from a Christian family. I might go Friday or Saturday though.
Gotcha. I thought you did a very nice Hawkeye. But I know where you're coming from-- in person (and in most photos, if the angle's not right) I look nothing like Roy. Hell, I can't even stay in character! I just like dressing like him... he's interesting and fun to portray-- and cosplay is all about having fun, right? :3
Again, I understand your dilemma with Easter. I'm Catholic-- though non-practicing. I'm planning on not telling my parents until the very last moment and then booking it to the nearest train station. I turn 18 a few days before the con, so there's nothing they can do/say about it. I'm going to AB and that is that!
Wat. You're my favorite Trap!Roy, though I've yet to tell you it.
It is! But I am a little picky about my cosplays, and I can't seem to be happy if I'm not having fun and being at least kinda in character at the same time. I was way too happy to be Riza at AB. XD I could hardly get into character for pictures. Martel can have a bit more fun than Riza so it's better. I can't seem to find the perfect facial expression for photos though. :/
Hahaha, I'm already 18 but that doesn't mean jack when you aren't financially independent independent yet. xD
"Trap!Roy"??? I'm slightly confused with that terminology... care to explain because I am ignorant? xP
True I guess. Still it's Anime freakin' Boston! It only comes once a year and I'm making sure I'm there every day. Maybe you can make a compromise with your family or something? I'm planning on going to visit my family the weekend before AB, justy to ensure my parents won't get to pissed when I leave unexpectedly the weekend after.
No, we actually aren't. (I'm 17, he's 25. xD But we both had a crush on each other, and were kinda flirting in our awkward ways during the con. We later talked on AIM after the con, and decided that it wouldn't be a good idea to date each other.
However, I did take him to prom last Saturday. My friend begged me to get a picture of him in his tux with his wig and gloves on, alas, I didn't ask him. xD I didn't want him thinking I liked him because he was a Roy cosplayer or something. (I do regret it however. Mustang+tux=<3)
It wasn't just the age difference. I'm pretty mature for my age, at least mature enough to be called 20-22, and he seemed about normal maturity level for his age, so it could have worked out there. We just quickly realized that we just wouldn't be compatible anyway. xD We'd be much better friends. Besides, the both of us didn't want a relationship at that point anyway, so it all worked out for the best.
