I’m going to MomoCon 2017! To say I’m excited would be a vast understatement, because I honestly didn’t anticipate going. One look at the guest list, however, convinced me that I needed to work some extra overtime and snag those tickets. It’s a bit of an adventure for me because I’ll be going out of state for this one, but I’m ready for it!
What am I looking forward to? J. Michael Tatum and Josh Grelle, these two being the main reason I decided I needed to go after all. I absolutely love them both and the fact that they’re going to be there solidified my resolve to go! However, they aren’t the only thing I’m looking forward to with this event. There’s supposed to be a ‘MomoCon at the Aquarium’ thing and that sounds like a ton of sun. Of course I’m also looking forward to making new friends and just exploring in general! Maybe find some more animes to add to my extensive ‘to-watch’ list.
Am I cosplaying? Yes. Totally. 100%. I actually got a few pieces that I’ll need today and I ordered the rest offline. Almost complete!
What am I cosplaying? Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I have wanted to cosplay her for a long time. I thought it would be easy (HA!) but I’m finding it’s actually very difficult to find some of the pieces I need, since I’m going for the less cosplayed version of herself. I’ll be wearing her casual black skirt, white tank top, black jacket combo. Finding that jacket was almost impossible and I still didn’t find a perfect one. I have a few days to return it, so if anyone knows of a place I can find an exact replica, let me know!
But that’s just for one day. I’m still debating on this, but I would like to do a crossover cosplay. Depending on how it works out, I’m going to crossover Fullmetal Alchemist and Attack on Titan. That’s right, Winry Rockbell is going to be a Scout. Not sure yet if I need to get anything else to enhance the similarities between the two, but it’ll be fun figuring it out.
Sorry this was such a fangirly post, guys. I couldn’t think of anything else to write about today because this has been on the front of my mind. I honestly can’t wait! It’s not my first Con, but it’s the first full weekend event I’m attending. Wish me cosplaying luck!
Have a great week, nerd dudes and nerdettes!
