Not just that, I love watching people do cosplays because a lot of them are really good at it. Their sewing jobs sometimes are too perfect and intricately done that I can't help myself but to keep applauding (Hello Hollywood, you should hire all those talented people ASAP!).

The funny thing is even though I really love anime and cosplays, I have never been to any cosplay event or showcase before! The timing were always wrong. I have school, I have jobs, I got sick and etc. Common, lame excuses and a sad one too but really what can I do? So years passed by and I'm still looking forward to my first anime festival experience where I would actually be there in person and not just 'ohhhh-ing' and 'ahhhh-ing' in front of the laptop monitoring what's going on from afar.
WHY GO TO THE LOCAL ANIME FESTIVAL WHEN I CAN GO TO CELEBRATE IT IN THE LAND WHERE IT ALL ORIGINATE FROM?
Air Asia Big Boss Mr Tony Fernandes is offering lucky bloggers for not just one but four return flight to any festival they feel they NEED TO BE AT in the next year. So of course my inner nerd answers that question quite easily. There will be AnimeJapan in March 2016 and I really want to go there!
You see dear readers, each year there will be an anime festival in Japan. It was previously known as Tokyo International Anime Fair but I guess they realized how boring it sounded so now they call it AnimeJapan instead. Whoever decided on that name change deserves a kiss on the cheek since the new name sounds much cooler! By the way, every year the anime fair usually attracts huge number of crowds from all over the world; it's really is an otaku festival. So I need to be there! I would kill to be there! (You know it's just a figure of speech right? Or is it?)
What would I do there? Oh, we're just getting started; I haven't gotten to the main point yet!

There will definitely be various stage performances and talks, in previous years there were a lot of behind the scene talks with anime casts. One of the AnimeJapan 2015 stage was a special event for the new remake of Sailor Moon, they shared a lot of behind the scenes stories and all.
Last but not least, I would definitely go on a selfie craze there especially when I go around the cosplayer event! What if I see someone who does perfect copy of Kirito and Asuna from Sword Art Online? Or pretty girls cosplaying Sailormoon characters? Or some other male characters that I have crushes on? The thought of it already make my heart thumping with excitement.
But if I'm going to have fun like that, its better to have a lot of people going with me. The more the merrier right? Let say if I have four tickets to fly to Japan, the first two people I'm going to take are my brothers. If you ask me why, let's just say that I'm the best sister.LOL!
And one more ticket would be for my dad. My cousin's mom; my aunt whom is my dad little sister lives in Japan and my dad has never been able to visit her and our Japanese uncle all these years. She had been living there for more than ten years there and I think I'd bring a great joy to him if I offer to bring him along.
Of course all of those rants above are all hypothetical for now. I need the tickets to actually make them come true right?? I hope I haven't ran out my luck for this year and 'may the force be with me'. *Opps, wrong fandom! Sorry Star Wars fans, I'm borrowing your catchphrase ;) *

So yeah, I've finished my babbling. I'm going to continue watching anime for now and keeps on crossing my fingers. I just hope I won't be getting dreams about AnimeJapan 2016 later at night since they say we always dream about what our heart desire!
