Hey friends, I’ve been posting a ton of bookish content so I figured I’d mix it up with something a bit different. The anime convention Anime Oasis is coming up at the end of the month! It’s located in Boise, so it’s a bit out of my way, but still one of the closest conventions. You can find out more about Anime Oasis here.
So, my hubby and I are planning to cosplay Tohru Honda and Kyo Sohma from the popular manga/anime Fruits Basket. They are one of my favorite anime couples of all time. We haven’t cosplayed them yet mainly because of the hair. Wigs are such a pain, but this year we finally caved. I really like this anime period because there is a LOT of character development. It’s a great length too. The Kyo and Tohru who meet in the beginning are definitely not the Kyo and Tohru who end up together. Kyo especially matures a lot having Tohru in his life. All the characters do really. Tohru is just so adorable!
At the moment, I still need a wig and some socks. There’s a wig that I’ve got my eye on in a cosplay exchange group, but the girl hasn’t messaged me back yet! UGH!
Chris has everything except a shirt, so we’re going shopping later today. It should be easy to find a black v-neck t-shirt, right? Here’s hoping…
Anyway, we have two friends going with us. One is going as slenderman and the other is going as Blue Snow from the anime Shimoneta. Shimoneta is definitely an anime that I don’t usually recommend, but it is hilarious. In a world where dirty jokes are outlawed, Blue Snow is a terrorist trying to bring back free speech, but basically dirty jokes. It can be really funny or offensive depending on who’s watching it. There isn’t a lot of actual nudity though, surprisingly, but it’s still very mature.
I’m so excited for this! I’ll be sure to post lots on Instagram (@domesticfangirl). I will also be writing a blog post when I get back! It’s not until May 26th, but I’ll be sure to post pictures of our cosplay’s once they are finished!
