As some more backstory, cosplayed Hijikata from this back in 2015 & always wanted to do another cosplay (not saying which character) & due to having a lot of time to work on any & all cosplays due to pandemic craziness & another late night chat I decided it’s timefor another 😅😎👌🏾
Also, if you’re looking at the names & are like, “Hmmm, those look familiar,” it’s another one of those historical fiction anime that goes completely in the WTF?! direction 😅👌🏾 If u like hot dudes having their clothes explode off while they sing, def give it a watch or hunt down a copy of an import of the PSP game(s) 😏
Again, super expected, best move to make, but sucks for the vendors, artists, event planners, & everyone else who relies on conventions for a stable source of income or pour a lot $$$ into making it happen.

Of course, jury’s still out if it’s still happening. It’s way later in the year so I’m more hopeful…but looking at how sh*t a myriad of things are in dealing with quarantine efforts & decreasing the spread of the virus in the States who knows 🤷🏿♀️😩
It was announced a few days ago now but the con I was going to in June, AnimeNEXT, was cancelled. With that cancellation my next 3 months of cons have all been cancelled & now I’m just waiting on (a) Momocon’s new dates or inevitable cancellation, (b) to see if my July cons (AX & Otakon) will be cancelled as well.
I don’t know if I’ve stated it here but I fully expect, at least on the con scene, things to be cancelled throughout the Summer & the only cons I’m quasi hopeful are going to happen is AWA & beyond; i.e., October/November cons & later.
Anyway, not complaining but want to get back to regularly updating this blog as much as possible & general awareness.
It was the next con I had panels at & the 3rd to be cancelled/delayed I was planning to attend. Tbh, really surprised it didn’t just cancel but who knows what the future will hold. Either way, rolling w/ the punches & just keeping an eye on things.
So, Zenkaikon & Anime Boston have been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak & quarantine efforts to cull its spreading. Definitely not complaining in any way as it’s a necessary measure for ensuring public safety, just stating this as these were the next 2 cons I’d be attending for the year.
Finished submitting panels for the following cons:
Anime Weekend Atlanta
Also, have panels accepted for Anime Boston & Momocon, but still waiting to hear back on the others waitlisted before I post specifics for AB & currently having a scheduling snafu addressed for Momocon panels (had 2 scheduled at the same time). Otherwise, have 1 confirmed for AB & 3 for Momocon so far.
Besides that, cosplay line up for Zenkaikon. Since I staff it now I’m not worrying about doing panels but focusing almost solely on staffing duties (& some cosplay shenanigans):
Besides this, going to get back into regularly posting updates & will have another post relatively soon going over the latest panels/cons that will becoming up, just waiting on some kinks to get ironed out in scheduling.
Anyway, now that I’m done with this I can cross this off my list & resume submitting panels to both AWA & Otakon.
