A very late indeed review of ConNichiwa 2011 as well as a few updates on future cosplays and cosplay videos.
Warning, Image Heavy!
Friday was the arrival day, and pretty much that was it. XD ConNichiwa is a smaller con, so we didn't plan to go to any programming (not that we do usually.) We ran a Code Geass panel with
and dressed accordingly as Shirley and Lelouch. The panel ran smoothly, but it was a bit unfortunate that it had been scheduled soooo early on the first day.
We had tons of things to do to get ready for saturday, so we pretty much hit the con casual after the panel and spent the day running errands. Our casual is usually pretty fancySaturday
Saturday was the hit day! As apart of Kissu Cafes, we were in the Kuroshitsuji Cosplay Cafe and it was amazing! Sylar was on the entertaining side as Grell Sutcliff, and Sheila served guests as Maylene (or she tried to). This was hands down our favorite and most succesful Cosplay Cafes!
We got to work with the best cast! And our guests were just excited as we were. Some of the cast taking pictures with a guest dressed as Ranmao
BIG shoutout to

(madam red). It was a phenominal cafe because of you guys!Sylar's Grell was a big hit! There isn't many pictures of Sheila's Maylene since she was working, but you can spot her behind the gorgeous Madam Red.
After the cafe was the character auction, where guests were allowed to bid on characters for some fun private hours at the convention! All the characters at the auction.
Sylar got sold to a Panty cosplayer! Big shout out to CJ!! We took a thank you photo with your panties during a shoot!Grell getting cozy with his buyer, Panty ;D
After we settled down with the aftermath of the cafe, we hit the Masquerade to watch some friends holds some skit. Somewhere in there, during intermission Sylar ended up in a dance of with Yuhki (Zack Fair). But we have yet to run into an videos of the event. XD Red and Grell pose during the Masquerade. Saturday
Saturday was kind of a lazy day for us. We got dressed in Celty and Shinra for a small photoshoot with friends, and kind of just milled about until checkout and return to Phoenix. Celty and F!Shizuo ponder things. <3 School boys!
So all in all ConNichiwa went over well. Well... the convention itself, we did not like. The programming and security and staff.... left us feeling a bit lack luster. But our weekend was made by all th amazing people we ran into! If you spoke to us during the con, most likely you made our weekend!
Another extra shout out to
! You know what you did!
In other news, those of you following us on Tumblr or facebook know of our progress with our Dragon Age II cosplays. From here on until July, we may not be going to many conventions, since we need to work hard on the big plans for Anime Expo (and save money). Photoshoots may be hard to come by, but we promise it will all be worth it when we can wow our watchers!
As always, please join us on those sites! We love hearing from you guys, and we often ask opinions on the cosplay process!
Also as you know, we've release some Cosplay Videos on our youtube! Including some teasers or Sylar's Grell! Don't forget to check them out!Grell Makeup VideoGrell Crack videoGrell Showcase
We want to do more videos in the future, but once again we are quite busy with big costumes! We will definitely keep you guys updated!
In honor of our coming Dragon Age II cosplays, we will share some of the costumes we've been admiring from the series!
