last sunday my boyfriend an I went to Cologne to visit the "Role Play Convention" (RPC) for the first time. I am quite used to Anime-Conventions so I was pretty curious what would await us at RPC.
In Cologne arrived, I fully dressed up as Princess Peach (driving a car while wearing a full-length hoop skirt is not a good idea X'D).
|I love the new crown my sis made for me <3|
|with my sweetheart - ready to conquer the RPC !|
When entering the trade fair it was strikingly how "uncrowded" the entrance hall had been. I knew in beforehand that the RPC is a way smaller convention than Gamescom or Dokomi but I was nevertheless surprised about how fast we could enter the convention. I guess I'm sadly just "used" to stand in a queue and pushing and shoving (Japantag 2016 brought this to a whole new level and using Trains during rush-hour in Tokyo XD).
After we met up with some friends of Sebi we made our way through the exhibition hall's and the outside located middle age's market:
At the middle age's market you even had the chance to do some axe throwing! ^O^ Of course my boyfriend and I couldn't miss the chance to do so.
|like a pro!|
And more amazing costumes / cosplayer crossed our way:
|Isn't her outfit just AMAZING ?!|
|my boyfriend at his fave booth -> mead !|
During early afternoon, Sebi and I started our quest to find some cool dices for me. I still don't believe it, but we didn't made a find. How disappointing. p__q I felt a bit like my plushie Toad here below:
|D: AAHHH~ TOAD|
My bottom line for RPC:
I will definitely visit RPC again next year. It was pretty cozy, no crowds, amazing and lovely cosplayer and very nice people. <3
If you're not only into Anime but also roleplay / fantasy-stuff you need to pay a visit. ^O^
