Baka-Raptor’s Highlight Mixtape

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Stand-up comedy is hard. Stand-up comedy in front of literally six people in Milwaukee is downright sadistic. But hey, props to Anime Milwaukee for at least giving me a shot. Now that I have a badass highlight mixtape to send around, it’s only a matter of time before Otakon comes calling.

A Few Words about Otakon 2013

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

I was a little younger and a lot less blind the last time I went to Otakon. This time I blue myself instead of getting sticky white stuff in my hair. What other changes would Otakon 2013 bring? THURSDAY I decided to book a room near a light rail station to avoid “event parking” rates. […]

I’m Afraid I Just Blue Myself

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

This past weekend, I went to Anime Boston cosplaying as Aomine Daiki from Kuroko’s Basketball (+ through one season, ++ potential). I figured this would be a good slacker cosplay. Cosplay jerseys are pretty cheap. I have a similar height, build, and skin tone to Aomine. For the final touch, I blue all over my […]

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2009

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

1. Atlanta Holy shit, that is a WIDE highway I stayed at the con hotel and saw nothing else of Atlanta 2. The Convention Rained all weekend. Good thing I stayed at the con hotel. My camera’s batteries died on me, so couldn’t take a picture in my Athena costume until  I got home. I […]

RaptorCon 2008

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

I was planning to report on Anime Weekend Atlanta, but Hoshi broke her sacred vow to suck up to me by not finding me a place to stay. Luckily, I discovered another convention right in town! Best of all, it was conveniently located in my new apartment (not this overpriced dump). I hopped into my […]

Otakon 2008

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

lolikit took that picture. I met some other bloggers as well… The dealers room stretched as far as the eye can see, which would probably be awesome if I cared. Shopping blows. When I get married, I’m giving my wife all my money and making her do all my shopping for me. I know it […]

PersaCon 2008

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

I reached the con at 6:50, just in time to pick up my badge. …or so I thought. They closed down the pickup booth early and kicked me out. Bastards. I went back to my hotel room and cried myself to sleep. On Saturday they gave me a $10 refund. Great. $10 totally makes up […]

MTAC 2008

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

COSPLAY Help! Police! Scar broke into my – oh wait, that’s just me. As promised, I redid my costume. There are two key differences between this version and my first attempt: 1. I applied the makeup with my index finger instead of my thumb It’s less manly but damn effective. 2. I redrew the tattoo […]
