Aw, Bamboo, you're so funny. ^^

More evidence that I really need to go to AX someday.

That was really funny and entertaining. Great job Bamboo! Hopefully it was as fun to make and talk to all those cosplayers as it was to watch.

I'll make it to AX eventually, I swear. It looks so fun! I loved the bit where Bamboo was being chased by Pacman x3

The guy dressed as Jack Sparrow was AMAZING!

I remember running into Bamboo while she was one of her rounds through the halls. Next year I plan on cosplaying, although I'm leaving what I'll be doing as a surprise.

Jack Sparrow was full of win!

The air guitar ninja was funny. same with the random bush playing a keyboard with a sleeping naruto on a leash. Can't get anymore random than that.

the guys at around 6:00 have amazing ninja skills o_o; if that's what you call it Razz

Is this why the aliens won't land? Or does this mean they're already here? Cons would be a great way to infiltrate. Notice there was no cosplay before Roswell. It's MIB in reverse. Bystanders Investigating Mankind.

Sorry,I gots to rant and I miss E3.

Enjoy the hell out of the LA convention center. Very Happy No,wait,enjoy the hell out of the backyard parties and the hotdog vendors (the ones who constantly clap the tongs together) who surround the convention center as well.Those were good times too.

It's cool you went through with the flip but I'm pissed that they dropped you,hottie Bamboo-chan. Wink Great recovery.

Bamboo's quick wit is what made me laugh while interviewing the freaks.I doubt the cosplayers even watch the anime they base their costume on.

It's funny for every cosplay creep you interviewed,there was an even worse,even more dopier freak behind them.I'm not kidding. Laughing

The Miku Hatsune made me laugh though,reciting that terribly catchy Ievan Polka.(I'm hooked on Vocaloid 2.)

I understand it's for the camera as well as the noobs but dammit,if you got to mention what you're cosplaying as,you didn't do a very good job.Take some pride when representing the west,damn.I wouldn't be able to enjoy the actual convention now a days with posers like this,wandering around.I guarantee,I'd start a real life,mugen battle royale before getting in the front door. Very Happy

Freaks.

The girl singing was really awesome! Very Happy

Also a nice Elizabeth and Zura ("Not 'Zura'! It's Katsura!"). Points off for lack of Elizabeth's signboard but not sure how you could make it work with a bulky costume like that anyway Smile

That was me in the Boota costume at 15:45! I sound like such a dork, haha, but I was caught off guard and hadn't the faintest who was interviewing me. Laughing If I had known who it was, I would've said something less dumbed-down and doofy!

Also, I usually have the head pushed up so it's a better shape, but I didn't have my friends there at the time to tell me to do so. :/

Oh well--I hope someone got a laugh out of my costume, or enjoyed it! I certainly love that costume, and Shokotan did as well! http://blog.excite.co.jp/​shokotan/​2860715/​
