On June 30 to July 4, I volunteered at Anime Expo (AX) in the Press Relations department. It was a very busy schedule but I was still able to find time to cosplay and going around the exhibit hall to shop. This year AX 2017, there was about six world premieres – CardCaptor Sakura Prologue, Tokyo Ghoul Live Action, Welcome to the Ballroom, etc. There was more screenings, panels, and concerts, and the convention site extended to the JW Marriot by the LA Live for even more space. AX 2017 was fun and tiring, and it was tough going back to work on July 5th. I’ve been cosplaying for about 5 years now, and I felt that each year I’m improving my makeup, wig styling, and costume details (read about my first cosplay experience here). Here are some photos I’ve taken at AX 2017 located at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Below are some of my purchases from the Exhibit Hall. Honestly, I spent most of my time in the Exhibit at three booths – Cybird: Ikemen Series, Idea Factory International, & one booth at the Artist Alley. When exhibit halls opens or when I get get off shift, I would walk over to one of these three booths first and spend about 2 hours there.
