Hey, guys! Sorry that I’ve been gone for the last few days. I spent the past weekend in Massachusetts with my family because my brother wanted to go to Anime Boston. Even though I didn’t attend, I still hung out for a couple hours in the Prudential Center right next to the convention. My brother decided to crossplay for this event, and asked to borrow some of my old clothes from high school. :P The corset, skirt, and petticoat underneath the skirt were from Hot Topic. But I sewed the headdress myself from lace, felt, and ribbon! :D
I decided to dress up a little bit, too, because I felt like it. I bought this dress a couple of years ago from a small shop in SoHo – I took the sash and wrapped it around my shoulders instead, though, for a different look. People actually asked to take pictures of me, too! Which was surprising, since I didn’t aim to look like a character from any anime series at all. Perhaps they thought I was? XD
This was my first time wearing my new NYX Black Cherry lipstick in public, too. It really made me feel confident! I might actually wear it on a regular night out from now on. : ) Sorry for the blurriness it the next photo – my brother took it with shaky hands in the food court. :P
There were a ton of really good cosplayers that day, too! It was unfortunate that I accidentally left my memory card in my laptop. :'( I would have taken a ton of pictures with them otherwise. I was able to take a few of our hotel room, though!
The next day, I was able to spend some time with Michael. After he picked me up, we had lunch at a great Middle Eastern place called Boston Shwarma. We ordered and shared a shawarma and a kibby sandwich. The meat was so flavorful! The spices tasted very exotic, too. Again, I missed out on my opportunity to take photos. >.<; After that, we headed over to the Museum of Fine Arts. :D I decided to camwhore in the car. :P
Their seasonal exhibit featured glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly, but the waiting time to get in was well over an hour. So we decided to tour the rest of the museum for four hours instead! Here are some of the pictures I took..
But because it was raining all day, there wasn’t much else to do. :'( The next day, I walked around the city with my brother. Some notable points of interest included Boston Common, Quincy Market, Newbury Street, the USS Constitution, and the Freedom Trail. :D
