lilly in the rose garden


Posted on: January 16, 2014

Last weekend I went to a small independent movie theater to see a showing of Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.0 You Can (not) Redo. Naturally, I arrived in cosplay.


I went with a friend and like, the moment we arrived somebody already asked for a photo! My friend later admitted it would have been cooler if he had tried to cosplay Shinji to match with me. I saw two other Kaworus, two Reis, an Asuka, a handful of Shinjis, and one original series Misato.

The theater was pretty tiny- only two theaters in the cinema. It seated like 50?? All arranged in chairs around tables, since it was a dine-in and bar kind of setup. The movie itself was just the Bluray release disc lol

It was very plain for the $15 price (plus prices for food) but daaaang the experience of being there, watching people cosplay and play pokemon together while we waited, actually seeing the movie in a more formal setting…worth it.

I heard that a moviegoer in the Carolinas actually paid for one of these events only to arrive and realize the movie was being played via somebody’s Playstation. I gotta say, this supposed “nationwide screening day” was not as structured and formal as the website suggested. I think I was in the best theater around from what I’ve heard.

Either way, totally worth it. I was so confused at the end and I think I prefer the original series. The CGI was so crappy and underwhelming, it distracted from the plot. Buuuut I will continue to purchase the DVDs and support the series just because.

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
