Small question: anyone knows by whom the song 'Skyscraper' is made?


Yep, it's by Matrix, a London-based drum 'n' bass DJ. You can find him (along with his mate Futurebound) at their MySpace page.

That was a great combination of hilarious, disturbing, and impressive.

I got to hand it to some of those guys; that seems like a huge amount of effort to make costumes and props. I'd never have the dedication to carve props out of wood.

Air guitar ninjas for the win! I can't believe no one's put this in an actual animation yet!

(If I'm wrong about this, link please!)

It was my first time going to Anime Expo and me and my girlfriend really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we only went for the first day cause we had to fly back.

Next year we're planning on going for all 4 days and with more people, seems more fun going with a group. We're planning on dressing up as Jesse and James from Team Rocket or Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask. I like Mars better Smile

That was great. So many well made costumes. I'm surprised at how many I didn't recognize at first. I really love the effort some people put into their costumes. <3 Like the girls that made things out of wood. That's something I don't think I would have the patience let alone the skill for.

The Sailor Scouts were great (though I wish Mercury had more screen time, instead of Mars and Venus.) and the Sailor Stars. I think they had some of the better costumes I've seen from the fandom. I really enjoyed the Lucky Star girls dance, and the girl that sang. I was also surprised to see Belle pop up. I didn't expect any Disney characters to be in the video, let alone my favorite Disney Princess, and with such a well made costume at that.

C'mon guys. A little love for Ellie Lee (from 15:46 on) too. She is gorgeous and funny.

- You guys look very pretty and hot. Are all the guys hitting on you?
- Some are.
- Are you getting some luck?
- Yeah.
- Have you seen some hotties?
- Not really.

ROFL. QFT. Asking the girl to sing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" was also hilarious.

Pikachu moment (13:38 - 13:53). Comparison with the original.

I love this DIY mentality of some cosplayers displayed on the video. There are a million ways to demonstrate your love, but these home made costumes are among the most creative.

It was fun watching BD flipping but I didn't understand what was that group doing at the convention. Were they gonna perform on the masquerade?

Seriously, not all Asians look the same. The last few were done by Ellie.

Despite both being Asian, Ellie and I are not the same person. Nor do we look the same.
