anime matsuri. this past weekend me and T, and me and Dru (+ dru's bro) went to the local anime convention known as anime matsuri. it was it's second year in production, and i think it went off much better than last years ..although i missed the concert this year.. (T_T)
anyways.. i was really wanting to dress up this year.. and well the weekend before the con i finally decided what me and dru could dress up as (he was forced to cosplay) feeling slightly feisty this year with all my working out for the marathon and closing in on 30, i decided to show more skin than i ever really show. we ended up going as Talho and Holland from Eureka 7, i looked them up because Nirigilis the japanese headliner band has a song in that anime. I made my outfit in a matter of days.. plus the bootcovers and belt.. all handmade. and i sewed on the white patches onto dru's jacket. i'm pretty proud of the outcome.. considering i've never really made clothes before.
me and T went on friday (i wore the infamous roo suit.. so i went from completely covered on friday.. to my mini skirt and halter on saturday), to look around and see the import car show, where i just so happened to see people that i knew from way back.. who were showing cars at that time.. of course they've moved on up from sup-ing up civics to now sup-ing up 300s, bmw's, and having lamborghini's and bentley's in their crew. but pretty much with the dj and the car models, it was just so 1999.
saturday was the day of the up and down. the most memorable moment was some guy coming up to me saying his friends were trying to guess my age... so i in turn asked him how old he thought i was.. his answer, 16. i laughed, my brother laughed, and so did dru and his brother.. so i said. no... i'm 27. i've never seen someone run away so fast.
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
