Been a While…

Ooh boy, know I haven’t posted in 5ever & I’m way behind in con reports, which I do plan on catching up on, but some minor updates:

  • Holiday Matsuri last year was really fun & the first time I truly enjoyed staffing in a while.
  • End of December going into the New Year I had a lot of fun w/ friends; marathoned a mix of great & subpar anime + movies; & Korean freakin’ BBQ~~
  • Got my DSLR camera & accessories so I can start playing n00b cosplay photographerβ™‘ As far as the model of camera, got the Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm IS STM Lens. Bought my bundle from eBay brand new & I love this camera XD
  • Freakin’ (partial) gov’t shutdown b.s. begins ushering us into the new year.
  • MAGfest was pretty fun, but I still dgaf about doing it for next year if I can’t score a free badge from any (legitimate) means >___> Gah, it’s the most overhyped con ever X/ Anyway, friends let me tag along their shoot Friday so I actually got to practice w/ my new camera.
  • Finally marathoned Darling in the Franxx which I like to call ‘high quality trash’ 😏
  • Generally trying to use this time; i.e., during this gov’t shutdown, to: catch up on chores, pack old cosplays away, finish some anime, get a head start on certain cosplay, & basically catch up on all types of backlogs.

To see a more regularly updated social media account, make sure to check my Instagram (djdatemasamune) as I’m fairly active on that.

Anyway, still need to update certain pages on this blog, which I also plan on doing at some point. See u at w/e convention I may run into u ^.^

ANYC 2018 Cosplay Line Up

Top left row, top to bottom: surprise cosplay, Formal Artoria (Fate/EXTELLA), Serenity 2nd form (FGO). Top right row: All Might (BNHA) & Travis Touchdown (NMH)

Had to trim it back my line up since I’ll be carpooling there w/ 3 other friends so I need to cut back as much as possible, esp. w/ prop heavy cosplays. That & the fact I’m probably not gonna feel like walking/Lyfting back+forth to my hotel that frequently to costume change.

Anyway, can’t wait to go & see some of my friends there next week…’cause that means post ANYC I can actually relax for a bit from all the con going πŸ™ƒπŸ˜…

Lastly, to be perfectly honest, Travis is the main costume debut for this con but on the other hand everything is mostly new, esp the surprise cosplay, sooooo guess u can consider the cosplay theme “DEBUT ALL THE THINGS!!“…fun times πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Nekocon 2018 Panels

Panels I’ll be presenting this year as well as a little blurb about them:

Crazy In Love…But Mostly Crazy: Yanderes in Anime (18+)
Friday, 1-2am Panel 2
Frequently when one hears the term yandere, one of the main characters that comes to mind is Yuno Gasai, but she’s only the tip of the iceberg in the vast sea known as anime of crazy obsessed characters that exist. Join dj Date Masamune as she recounts some of the wildest yandere characters she’s encountered in all her anime endeavors.
Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls
Sunday, 1-2pm Panel 4
This panel will take a look at Japanese myth & lure shown in various anime as well as list the various types of yurei, yokai, & oni that tend to pop up.
