  • Hello,

    French KigO division reporting :
    Exactly one month after the Japan Expo, I found some time to write this little article for the Leek.

    So, what is Japan Expo ?
    Japan Expo is the #1 biggest convention in Europe. It exists since 1999 and the 2015 occurence attracted ~250K people during 4 days. Yes, it's a lot of people ! (half way to the Comiket attendance :S )
    There are smaller versions of Japan Expo (USA, Belgium, south of France, ...) since it becames some kind of brand. But the main one is always located near Paris at the begining of July. French uses the abbreviation "JE" to talk about their favorite annual meeting.

    "Oui ! nous allons à la JE cette année !! ♥"

    Since I started Kigurumi in 2013, the french kigu club (now named KaoKig, Kiff) always longed for this annual meeting. To my delight, every year, we had the pleasure to meet with foreign kigus too who wanted to perform in France. We got Finnish, UKs, Swissies, Belgies, Germanisies, Spanishies, ...…
  • Anime expo, where about 98000 or so people gather to enjoy anime and merch. A confluence of cosplayers and fans of cosplay. This event is nuts, the sea of people is almost too much to take in.

    Even with this many people just the sight of Kigs the sea of people part like Moses said split.

    Still, the stoppimg every few feet can get tiring, even if you're getting attention

    And trying to divine which camera to look at is an art unto itself
    But some how we all seem to look like we knnow what we're doing.

    Well, some of us...

    Till part two,
    Rosie <3

  • A couple of weeks ago, AN2016 in Toronto became a main attraction for the cosplay and kigurumi communities. Although it was a great experience for all attendees, it was actually quite hot and humid compared to last year's gathering. Here is my latest Ahri's Diary entry on 5 tips on surviving the heat:

    1) Water - when you are in full zentai, foundation garments, padding, etc. you will inevitably sweat like a pig. I don't know where this idiom comes from considering that pigs only a few sweat glands — compared with more than 2 million in humans. Sorry, I digress. Let's just say that you will lose a lot a water due to perspiration (which can be a bit stinky. Pee-you!! So ladies, please don't forget to apply a generous of deodorant). Staying well hydrated is a must. Water would be a key component. For those that need more calories, there are always sports drinks for considerations.

    2) Caffeine - stay away from the cup of java or another swig of that dark cola. …
