Antwerp Convention 5th Edition posted at 12:06 PM
It was 7 a.m when we changed into our costumes. Cathy (Chishio Cosplay) decided to go as Gaga RuRu and Isabell as Lala Lulu. I decided to go as Umi Sonoda from Love Live. When we were ready we left to the 5th edition of Antwerp Convention by car. When we arrived a very long line was already waiting to enter, but we still had to park our car which went fluently. When we arrived at the entrance the line had disappeared thanks to the "two-line method". One for visitor without tickets and one for visitors with tickets.
When inside, we noticed the robot fights, but unfortunately it was too crowded to get a glimpse of the robots so we moved on. We loved the fact that there were old school games and modern games. The old Nintendo's were pretty nostalgic! There was a wide passage which made it easy to move to next hall where most of the dealers stood together with the main stage. There was a large variety of national and international traders who sold their good. You could buy comic books, keychains, wigs, original posters, materials to make costumes, lenses, drawing material, video games, clothing... I'm certain every visitor could find something to his or her liking
Besides gaming and shopping, there were also different activities like: wrestling, the Cosplay Group Picture, a Lego display, karaoke, the Avengers-bus from Disney, and the Cosplay Act Competition. I really enjoyed watching this. The costumes were beautiful and the acts were entertaining. We especially loved the Harry Potter act! I missed the Cosplay Panel/Q&A with Shinju's Workshop, because we were checking out the two halls, perhaps that's something for next year.
Besides that there were a lot of guests like Gates Mc Fadden from Star Trek, Tyler Mane from X-Men, Dan Starkey from Doctor Who, Clint Langley from Guardians of the Galaxy and a lot more. Ellie Kendrick and Ian McElhinney from Game of Thrones were offered a Q&A session at the Panel Stage, which was pretty amazing as well!
In the first two hours we could easily walk and watch the different stands, games,.. but after that it actually became a little too crowded for the three of us. But overall we had a wonderful time. We had fun, bought keychains from Love Live and enjoyed the different activities that were organised. I'm looking forward to next year.
Antwerp Convention posted at 10:57 AM
Antwerp Convention , the convention that focuses on Sci-fi, Fantasy and Horror, is approaching. On 26/04/2015 the fifth edition will take place. Thanks to a lot of effort the convention will be 35% larger then previous year, which sounds very impressive to me!
I'm very excited to go myself since it is the first time I'm going and the program looks very promising as well.
I'm look forward to the "old school gaming room" and "the make-up sessions and Special Effect" stand, "Anime and Manga Area", because I want to watch the karaoke and perhaps find courage to finally enter myself. I also look forward to the "Cosplay Act Competition", since that's always fun to watch as well.
There will also be a dealer room, which will be larger then last year. It's always fun to walk through the dealer room since so many national and international traders will be selling goods and collectibles. I'm always searching for something interesting I can purchase. Bries Antwerpen, Cheap comics NL, Sorry No Subtitles NL, The Skull Brussel, Archonia Brussel, Tolkienwinkel NL, Ultra Violet Antwerpen, Epic Gent, Gadget Gent, Twilight Zone Dordrecht NL, Stripkever Mechelen, Buddys Bookshop Lier en Zeno Pictures, and many more will all be there!
It already looks like a mouthful for one day, but besides all the activities summed up above, many special guests will be attending. With many, I mean more then 30! There will be Actors, illustrators, comic writers,.. To name a few: Gates McFadden (Start Trek) - Peter Davison (The fifth Doctor Who) - Clint Langley (Britisch cartoonist known for his Graphic Novels and covers for movie and computer games) - Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones) - Chris Rankin (Harry Potter) and many more.

Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic posted at 4:29 PM
"We cling to our fairy tales until the price for believing them becomes to high" ~ Ransom Riggs
Hello dear mad readers. I'm here to announce my new camera. The Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic from Fujifilm. I bought this camera to keep memories close to me, give them a special spot when I can look back on them as a reminders that there are things, persons, places, precious to me. I have to find motivations, strength in all things that I love to help me take steps forward. I'm not going to write how hard I have been struggling the past months, but I hope I can start writing about what keeps me going and what is still twirling in my head. I guess this blog will become more of a lifestyle blog than a fashion blog since me and my sister Paris are to far apart to take outfit pictures and I feel like I started gaining interest in so much more besides fashion. I started reading tons of books, started writing, dance more often, and decided to expend my social life. ~ London
