Capturing Emotion with Avery Liburd

avery_liburd

New York City is a pretty big place. But if you run around in certain circles, you’re very likely to come across the same people. That was how I came to know Avery Liburd, formerly known as Avery Li or DarkShonobi on YouTube where we first met. I’m not sure if he remembers or not but when we ran into each other randomly in Midtown Manhattan, where we exchanged pleasantries and introduced ourselves.

And while it wasn’t the most interesting or awkward situation that I’ve encountered when randomly meeting people I talked to online, it definitely struck a chord.

When I reached out, here is what he had to say.

The hotel was pretty nice the funny part about all this was the hotel guest that knew nothing about anime cons constantly asking cosplayers or looking at them with their crazy faces.

We were at NYCC this past weekend and we had a blast.

If you ever wanted to go to a convention TREAT YO SELF!

they are so much fun if you go with friends and if you go alone you will always make new friends being surrounded by like minded people.

NYCC is every year in October and SDCC is around July if you ever want to go to the small cons as well its mostly positive vibes everyone is nice and encouraging when you cosplay, I try to tell a lot of people they did an amazing job with their cosplay and compliment so maybe you will catch me complimenting you one time.
