Mami Tomoe News

Mami Tomoe is a anime/manga character in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise
| |

A few weeks ago, I had visited Momocon once more! I failed to post it in my usual sites last year, but this year, I went all-out with my good buddy, who's moving to California in a while. It was bittersweet, but it was also a good sendoff to his farewell. Aside from that, I found a lot of my friends and many cosplayers were from well done to excellent. A list of the things I managed to get...

  • Full-Series Boxset of Princess Tutu (not the ADV Version, but this one kept most of the extras and had new trailers)
  • Booster Box of Vanguard BT03 (I'm building a Dark Irregulars Deck)
  • Vanguard Oracle Think Tank Trail Deck
  • Keychain of Mami Tomoe (of Madoka Magica)
  • Playmat of a gal with a Buster Sword.

The Cosplay

Here's all of the cosplay pictures that I managed to take! This time, I even ran into someone using a Serinity Form Sailor Moon, a Chibi-Usa and even an Elizabeth cosplayer. <3

Well, that pretty much sums everything up, except getting back home was the best workout ever (for me, not for my folks). XD Until next time!

I don't know how many different languages I've programmed that in lol

For this year's AR 2013, I decided I'd do something simpler. So when my cousin asked me if I would group cosplay with him, as Homura, I agreed. (He's doing a male adaptation of Mami, and it looks ridiculously good.) I watched the anime before he asked (lol he suggested it to me), and I'm currently going through the light novels. Just a word of warning, it's kinda whacked out, so if you don't do well with that kind of stuff...skip it.

I'm planning on making everything more or less from scratch. I'm starting out with more or less no sewing experience, some model building experience, and almost 0 drawing/designing experience. :D Wish me lots of luck lol I'mma need it.

Other than me, there are 5 others in our group: a female Madoka, a male Sayaka, a male Kyoko, and a human adaptation of Kyubey.

For my costume: a jacket, a blouse, a box-pleated skirt (4:1), tights with detailing, and slightly pointed heels.

For props: AT4, RGP-7, pipe bombs, (all fake and non-operational of course), maybe mod a PB gun for rifle?, shield and soul gem, and

"Sealdoka": What's a Sealdoka? lol

For more images of what i'm planning, check out my pinterest board for it! (As well as the other characters)

If you're doing Madoka Magica as your cosplay this year, lots of luck, and feel free to use the resources (anything {Cosplay}) I've compiled already :)

Howdy everyone! Welcome to the first part of the Puella Magi Madoka★Magica news blog where I put together lots of old news from Crunchyroll. Given that we have two movies already aired and a third movie coming soon, there is a lot of hype and merchandise involved.

Merchandise

First off, it's the Madoka merchandise. Let's do the figurines and other misc merchandise.

If you're into collecting figurines, the Madoka franchise won't disappoint you.

For prices, check the Good Smile company link for the ultimate Madoka and the regular Madoka Kaname figurine.

Tea Cups and Scooters

In the misc department, we have tea cups and scooters.

The lithium-ion powered scooters cost 134,400 yen (about US$1676) each. Both can go at a max speed of 35 kilometers.

Manga

We got two cool manga spin-off releases in Japan.

Yen Press is the company publishing the new manga titles.

  • Puella Magi Oriko Magica by Kuroe Mura
  • Puella Magi Kazumi Magica: The Innocent Malice by Masaki Hiramatsu and Takashi Tensugi

Movies

We got cool posters that have amazing back drops of the cities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and France.

Then, we have back drops of Singapore, Korea, Japan, and US.

Also, we got character posters as well.

Now, we have a special film strip.

This film strip had been auctioned at Yahoo. It was sold at 1,080,001 Yen ($13,620).

Sources

Since I'm at school right now, I'll post the hyperlinks for now, and I'll come back and reorganize the links neatly.
