Panels Submitted (& Other Things)~

Finished submitting panels for the following cons:

  • AnimeNEXT
  • Otakon
  • 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):

Cosplays in order: Korekiyo Shinguji (DRV3), Kuko Harai (HypMic), Aya Drevis (Mad Father), Ibaraki Douji (Onmyouji), & Aya Shameimaru (Touhou)

Anyway, will post more as things transpire 😎👌🏾

All Updates COMPWETE!

Finally done, updated all the relevant pages so everything’s current~~!

Cosplays/Cons, New Cosplays per Year, Links, Panel Resources, Panel Descriptions, Previous Panels/Cons, & Schedule all updated.  Also, established a new system for disseminating panel resources: from now on I’m storing all relevant files in a public Dropbox folder to make it easier to upload everything & reduce the likelihood of me completely dropping off uploading files.

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.

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 🙃😅

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 😅😅😅

Anime Mid-Atlantic On The Horizon

So, with ANext over that’s 2/3 cons down in this con rush leaving just Anime Mid-Atlantic (AMA).

Below are my panels:

& my cosplay line up:

Characters (left to right then top to bottom): Sakura Matou (FSN [derped & got a pic of her in her outfit from the HF movie but fcuk it]), Jonathan Joe☆ (JJBA), Iori Yagami (KoF), Relius Clover (BlazBlue), & Auron (FFX)

Already in a mad dash to.finish packing by tonight & doing whatever minor panel work I need to do before I leave Thursday.

Anyway, let the prep for the final con of the unholy trio continue~ 🙃

AB 2018 Cosplays & Panels

Cosplay
Character names, starting from the top…
Fareed McGillis & Orga Itsuka (Iron-blooded Orphans), BB (Fate/Extra), MHX w/ both swords for her NP (FGO), Zapp Renfro (BBB), & Monkey (Juuni Taisen).

BB is really for the Fate shoot but since I’ll be going from 3rd floor of the con center to the 2nd floor hotel side right after a panel, no promises. All in all, not that much in terms to pack & not that many props, although I do plan on making a red light up sword for Zapp.

Tl; Dr Nekocon Report

Overall, had an experience akin to my AWA one: it was so good that now im suspicious & I don’t like it 😅

Panels went great, had a fun time cosplaying, had a great time with friends, & this was probably my best year going of the 5 I’ve been going.

Both of my panels, Sit Down, STFU, & Play This J-RPG (Deluxe Edition) Final Fantasy: Love It or Hate It, They Still Have All Your $$$, went really well & I had a great audience at both.

Cosplay wise, I wore Jonathan Joestar (JJBA) & Gundham Tanaka (SDR2) Friday; Dante (DMC4) & Mondo Oowada (DR) Saturday; & Casual Euphemia (CG) Sunday. Had a great time in all my cosplays, esp. the DanganRonpa ones & Dante. I had 2 friends also cosplay Vergil to my Dante, & that was the best time I had at the con cosplay wise. It got to the point that my friend & I were pretty much standing in the same spot & ppl kept coming up, asking for pictures, freaking o It cause ZOMG, DMC!?!?, & it just made my day. I personally don’t have that happen too often with cosplay stuff, so it’s always a treasure when it does happen.

Top: Dante from Devil May Cry 4. Bottom, left to right: Casual Euphemia from Code Geass, Gundham from Super Dangan Ronpa 2, Mondo from DanganRonpa, & Jonathan Joestar from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

Ended the con w/ Oppression-con shenanigans; i.e., dinner at Cracker Barrel, & wrapped up & altogether great weekend. Actually looking forward to next year for once.

As mentioned in my other post, the Nekocon logo image belongs to them & I in no way claim the artwork as my own.
