Cosplayer Nation: A Documentary

TGIF! I am so happy it is Friday, it was such a weird week, especially here in Philly.
So today I wanted to share an amazing cosplay documentary with you!
Cosplayer Nation is the brainchild of CEO Joshua Adams and President Uke Li.

Check out this awesome 15 min (i love that) sneak peek into the Documentary.

When it comes to this documentary you really should never judge a book by it’s cover.  The interviews, background information and stories within this documentary are both informative and exciting. When people talk or ask me about cosplay, sometimes I don’t know how to explain it in a way people would understand. This documentary gave me insight on how to make other people who are not an anime, manga, or cosplay fan understand that this hobby is a way to express yourself in a different light. That it takes dedication, time, somewhat of a strategy (that seems to go to hell the closer an event gets), problem-solving skills and an ability to think outside the proverbial box.

I cannot wait to see more from Cosplayer Nation and for more people to understand that cosplay is not just a hobby. That it really is a form of expression, a creative process, and above all an art 😀

So please check out the trailer and join the Nation!

Live Action Anime Adaptations: Yay or Nay?

Over the weekend, my other half and I drove about an hour and a half to see the The Last: Naruto the movie. On the ride home, after speaking about how we loved the movie, we got into the good old live action adaptation discussion.

I for one, find live action to be entertaining and interesting. I mean, nothing is ever as good as the source. But live actions can just be good in its on way.

My First Live Action Series was Ouran High School Host Club, which I have read the manga and watched the anime. It was different but also very entertaining 😀

I also watched Great Teacher Onizuka 2014 and Gokusen, however I have yet to read the original manga versions 😦

I really liked all these shows, I always seemed to be watching them on my train rides to NYC… I always got those “what the heck is she smiling at” stares.

Any who, the next live action adaptation I am going to watch is Rurouni Kenshin. I love the anime and I have read really good Reviews! I am very excited and will update with my thoughts 😀

So are live actions a yay or nay and why?
