Made it back from Anime Central (also known as ACEN), where a good time was had by all! We’ve been going to ACEN for many years now, and it is one of the largest anime conventions in the midwest – the unofficial count we heard was about 26,000 people this year.
As always, the costumes at ACEN were a highlight, and no genre or character was off limits – anime, video games, sci-fi, children’s cartoons, and of course: Pedo-Bear.
When we go to conventions, we are always on the lookout for interesting cosplay! We did some interviews to highlight some of our favorite garb, people, and techniques from our one trip to Anime Milwaukee -
The new Nerf Firestrike has a lot of character, and we can see it becoming a favorite Cyberpunk style sidearm. MeowyMeowMeow decided to give it some Mass Effect styling to make it stick out form any of the other upcoming Firestrike paintjobs. What do you think? Should we continue to make this one?
The holidays had us running a little crazy but we’ve finally been able to get back to work making some new cosmetic mods and having a lot of fun doing it! We got distracted by the new Firestrike, put the finishing touches on a new Ravyen design, and put some fun things on to Nite Finder.
We got such a great response when we posted the Firefly SMG version of a Mad Moxxi that we thought we’d try something more “practical”. This super-soaker (Nerf Electrostorm) is smaller than the SMG, so it might be easier to incorporate into a Mad Moxxi cosplay than an extra-large gun might be – and more affordable.
This one has been decorated to look more like the in-game gun Rubi. While Rubi is manufactured by Maliwan, it has the signature Moxxi color scheme and graphics, with the blue accents to represent elemental shock damage. This protype is being auctioned off right now, and we might make more if people are interested!
