Now, my main goal in having a party was to make sure people had fun. Which is why I made cards, and why I hosted a costume contest. To be honest, I was very worried about whether people would dress up, but enough people pulled through to make it very fun.
I basically spent my party running around taking photos, apologising for not talking much, and writing cards. I didn't actually eat, and ended up losing my voice (remember, I had a throat infection). So rather than give you a blow by blow account of what went on, here are some of the best cosplays.
Of course, when I say "some", I mean "most". Almost all of them were awesome!
Let's play a game. Which of you can guess who these next 6 characters are? (I'll even give you the movie titles, so you have no excuse to make a mistake)
First up... the PRINCESS MONOKE COUPLE
Along with the WHISPER OF THE HEART peeps! Aren't they adorable? (I was so hoping someone would cosplay this - it's one of my favourite Ghibli movies)
*sings* Ponyo, ponyo, ponyo sakana no ko *finishes singing* PONYO!
|Ponyo and the guy who likes Ponyo - My running gag on my future-cousin in law|
(he insists on the actual name)
And what's a No-face without a Chihiro? One of my cousins came (without consulting No-Face) as Chihiro/Sen!
|The clothes! <3|
Obviously, we had to act out a movie scene. (No-face was very prepared)
|Can you guess what scene it is?|
|Ladies and gentlemen, meet my coolest/scariest cousin (if|
any of the other cousins are there, um, you're all cool equally!)
|Hint: think colour scheme and hats.|
In third place... No-face and Chihiro!
|No-face was being sweet and let my bro wear his costume, hence the|
sudden decrease in height. The original No-face is still in the photo though.
|Personally, my dad was rooting for them. Because my cousin came in a wig.|
Here's me with the arrow from Princess Mononoke!
|I like this photo!|
|Group photo of all the people who came as characters.|
|If there was ever a time for hashtags in a blogpost: #acpride|
The real purpose was to meet Happy, who couldn't make it to the party. You're a true friend ^^
Ok, last picture. For real.
|#notevenmyphone <- That isn't a valid hashtag right? I'm very out-of-touch|
