Picture overload + report of AnimeQTR Event last Thursday 😀
It was fantastic, it was really great seeing all the anime/manga fans, cosplayers and Japan enthusiasts come together in Doha for the first time. It’s the first ever anime/manga/cosplay convention in Qatar, which was put together by a local group of otakus – some of which are VCU students and alumni. It was held at our school, Virginia Commonwealth University, and the ambassador of Japan came and supported the event.
A lot more people came than we expected — the Atrium was packed in the first few hours!
Here’s my Mari Illustrious Makinami cosplay (Evangelion 2.0) that I quickly put together in a week ^^; I opted for a dark red/maroon-ish wig for her – I think it gives a nice contrast to the blue headband and green tie, and it matches with the skirt and leggings. Her hair is actually brown, but it has a shade of red in some pictures, and I’ve seen many cosplayers go for red and I think it looks better~
Yes, I may have made the necktie a bit too short ^^; I’ll make another one when I have the time.
I’m doing this exact same pose in every single photo I’m in >___< So just be warned, I’m pretty sure you’ll get tired of it ^^;
My awesome brothers, as Bao from King of Fighters and Reno from Final Fantasy VII respectively. Bao sewed his costume from scratch all by himself!
Read the rest of her report, with more pictures here. She’s also borrowed a few from iloveqatar.net, check out their photo gallery here.
