As those of you who follow me on Twitter may know, I attended a couple of really fun conventions in the last couple of weeks. First off was IMATS, the big makeup convention that I also went to last year. Unfortunately due to my filming schedule of Away We Happened, I wasn't able to visit during the public days but I did get to pop in for a couple short hours between call times on Friday. I of course picked up a few goodies that I wanted to share. :)
The next weekend, I was super excited to go to Anime Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Trust me, I was in cosplay heaven and there were tons of people who went all out from wigs to makeup to impressively elaborate costumes. I'm super nerdy and a long-time fan of anime so it was very, very exciting! Definitely had to control myself so I wouldn't purchase every cute plushy or animatronic cat ears that I passed by. Again, lots of cute things to share!
Check out my haul (and giveaway within the video) below!

To show you a little sneaky peek into what I wore one of the days of Anime Expo, here is my Rainbow Dash cosplay from My Little Ponies. I'm a huge MLP fan! I uploaded this pic onto my Instagram that day.
What do you think? Do I look like her?
I also ran into this guy at AX whom you may recognize as well. He's "that guy from that one anime" aka Wes from Wong Fu Productions. It was only fitting considering we'd been filming together for the last 5 Saturdays so we just had to see each other again on this Saturday. ^_^
By the way, these Necomimi ears are really fascinating! They were borrowed from Wes's friend in my video but it uses brain wave technology to actually adjust positions according to your thought patterns. It's crazy! I showed them off in the video so check it out at 14:20 if you haven't seen it already. ;)
Hope you guys enjoyed my IMATS & AX haul and also some cosplay vlog fun at the end!
Let me know in the comments what you secretly geek out to. Surely I am not the only Pony fan out there, right? RIGHT??
