Day two of Kumoricon was the place to be, so many incredible cosplays everywhere you looked and people went all out. There were people doing a cheerleader performance and throwing a girl up in the air! Like oh my gosh, I am so happy I was in the right spot at the right time to be there to see it all (cause I don’t think I would have believed it).
After spending a few great hours at con on day two, we finally decided to buy all the things we wanted. Nothing too crazy but lots of warm clothes and earrings to keep our nerdy selves stylish in this sudden winter we find ourselves to be in. All of these were very cute and I can’t wait to share photos and links in my wrap up once con is over!
We did take a few hours to leave con and visit the places to be in Portland, such as Kinokuniya, Powell’s Books, and 1927 S’mores Company (pretty much one of the best places ever, and the s’mores were mouthwatering good).
Then we headed back to con to check out the late night scene, all of which happened after my interviews with some more great and amazing voice actors! I’m so excited to share what they had to say to fans, and the staff again were absolutely great! They were having a more difficult time on day two but they were handling it like champs and doing everything they could to be open and helpful to everyone.
Lastly, we stopped off at The Umbrella: Late Night Lounge. We got some cocktails and mocktails, The Blackswordsman, and the Dark Ghost Neko, both of which were very tasty. They even had Caleb Hyles singing there for the first hour before he headed off to his late night panel. After the performance we went on a hunt for food which ended up with us getting late night dumplings and playing anime trivia into the late evening.
I am so excited to start on day three of Kumoricon. Today’s plans include doing an interview with someone I’m excited to talk to, picking up a few pieces of merch in the exhibit hall and artist alley area, and of course cosplaying my beloved Luffy and Ace from One Piece to finish out the con!
