Anyway, hope to see you there 😀

Panels for Ichibancon & Mag GET~!

I know it’s been forever since I last posted & I’m super behind w/ updating everything in general (probably won’t get to it until after MAGfest tbh), but I’ve been super active, I swear ^.^;

  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition (side order of J-RPGs) ~ Thursday, 8:30p, Panels 2

Cosplay wise, Ichibancon:

For MAGfest:

Other possible cosplays for Mag…

  • Dio from Virtue’s Last Reward
  • Regal from Tales of Symphonia
  • Something Fire Emblem related

All of these unsure ones are for photoshoots that I may/may not be able to attend, I’ll have to double check.  Also, if I did any of the possible ones, would add some testosterone to the current sea of estrogen ^.^;

Anyway, hopefully I catch you at either of these cons.  Otherwise, hope everyone had an awesome Xmas & even better New Year ~^.^~

So, How’ve You Been?

Another update post.  Brace yourselves, there’s about a million things I’m mentioning in this post >.>;

To start, as the briefest con review/report I’ve ever had, Otakon 2016 was great.  Had a lot of fun being a cosplay wh*re & being in/running about 6 shoots; granted, had to swap out 2 cosplays, Atrum Galliasta (Fate: UBW) instead of 3rd form Amakusa (Fate/Grand Order) & Pride! Rin (Vocaloid) instead of  Prince Akio (Utena).  I still had my Type Moon shoot, so Atrum was worn there, & Rin was worn for a Vocaloid shoot.

Still plan to do both.  Akio’s definitely going to be brought out for Ota next year, since my friend will also hopefully have Anthy done, & I plan to have Amakusa done for AUSA 2016, since I have a Type Moon related panel (& also want to run a Type Moon shoot there as well).   Also, as a reminder, I post all my cosplay related stuff to my Facebook page, so if you want to keep up with all my cosplay stuff, definitely give my page a like.

Besides cosplay stuff, had an awesome time hanging out with friends & making new ones.  The only thing negative I have to say is that Ota 2017 is totes going to be a clusterf**k.  Based off the Q&A they had going over all the things planned for the DC move, which was an awesome idea for a panel btw, there’s still a lot of things not really hammered out for a move that’s going to be, you know, next year -_-  Hopefully all the problems that will come up during next year will knock that chip off their shoulder ~,~

Besides that, just as an FYI, finally started JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, so now I have Kars as my BG on random things…deal with it XD  Kars & Dio are my favs from the series (idc I’m only on part 3, I know there still going to be up there/top tier), so I’m just going to have them all over my social medium.  Needless to say, want to cosplay both.  Dio is relatively easy, Kars I fortunately found a version of him where I don’t need to be fit af to pull off, so I’m super hype about that XD  Don’t know when I’m going to cosplay either, Ota 2017 at the latest, but I’m def gonna make it happen.

Panel stuff…

AWA, got one accepted…of course it was Bleach (which recently ended & ZOMG WTF that “ending” even DX).  Here are the deets (just gonna copy/paste from the e-mail):

Bleach: Shunpou Edition Friday, September 30, 2016 Room: CGC 106 7:00pm 8:00pm

So, be there or be square or whatever >.>

AUSA I have these 2:

  • But What Is “Evil”? Morality & Ethics in the Fate Universe
  • Guropoid: Recounting Grotesque & WTF?! Vocaloid Videos

I still have 2 waitlisted & some I submitted for Thursday programming, but we’ll see.  I’m just excited to have the ones I do.  Gonna be hella fun times.  Also, since I’m Type Moon trash, I plan to host a photoshoot.  Just waiting to hear about the time/date for my panels so I can plan the shoot accordingly.

Also, speaking of shoots, don’t forget all the shoots I’m hosting for AWA~!  I’ll have a Bleach, Vocaloid, Zero Escape, & Type Moon one.  I already have a post with all the deets & corresponding event pages, so make sure to view that if interested.

So far, probably cosplaying these bros for AWA…

So, if you read the captions; i.e., read the freakin’ captions, not planning to do all of them, just some are definites, others are maybes, others still are either/or, like Shin Natsume/Kaito Wanijima.  Ashera, Kratos, & Riviera/Charlone are all things I’m bringing mainly b/c of my friend/roommate who also likes to cosplay JRPG stuff, & this is one of the few cons we’re both attending.  All the shoot cosplays are definites.  Quite frankly, only making the one new costume to save $$$ & sanity b/c I need to start saving like crazy for NYCC & to work on some other cosplay stuff that needs to be done by the end of this year to be ready for cons at the beginning of next year (MAGfest & Katsu respectively).

Just as an FYI, don’t forget to submit your panels to Katsucon.  You can do so by going here & the reimbursement policy is listed here.  The deadline is Friday, Sept. 9th, so get submitting~!

Due to needing to pre-register before I could submit a panel, decided to go with Sangawa Project over Derpycon for my PA/NJ con.  Already submitted panels, just waiting for the deadline to hit & then hear the final decision.  I had 2 accepted last year but ultimately decided not to go, this year I’ll be going w/ some friends.  I’ll be rooming & traveling w/ the same ppl., so it won’t be as much of a headache/won’t have to worry about plane tickets.

Poll results for my MAGfest 2017 cosplay *drum roll*…One won (GD puns) by a landslide.  I still plan to do Terumi at a later date with a friend, but otherwise I will be making this precious princess for MAGfest 2017.  I have another friend who’s super into the series & has done Three before, so super hype XD  Hopefully I can lasso some others to potentially have all the sisters, keeping my fingers crossed ^.^

One, Drakengard 3

One, Drakengard 3

Speaking of way too many GD cons close together (or is it cosplans???), since I plan to do Ichibancon this year/2017 as well as MAGfest & possibly Ohayocon again (Ichi & Ohayo contingent upon panel acceptance), these are the 3 main cosplays I need to have done before the year ends:

I can’t start during October b/c I’ll be getting a crapton of stuff done for NYCC, AUSA (main one), & probably Nekocon at this point, so I’ll only have November & a little of December to hammer everything out, w/ a little more time to work on Clow since I need him for Katsu.  Fun times working on cosplay (@,@).  Also, since Nekocon is pretty much happening at this point, might as well submit some panels ~.~  Will be tabling for a con, which means a lot of costs will be covered (hotel & badge), so this becomes a helluva lot more affordable & a guaranteed situation where I won’t have to worry about finding a room/filling a room, which is my main problem w/ both of the VA cons I’ve been to.

 

That’s about it for this massive update on wtf I’ve been up to & planning.  Again, probably going to be another gap of time where I’m MIA, but as usual, if you check my Facebook page, Twitter, or Instagram (occasionally), you will see more updates on what I’ve been up to. Ciao…for now (GD rhyming) ^.^

Anime Boston, Cosplays, & Things to Come

Yay~! Found out about AB panels, they are:

  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition (side order of J-RPGs)
  • Let’s Go to ‘The World’: A Panel About the .Hack Games
  • Bleach: Shunpou Edition
  • 9 Persons, 9 Virtues, 9 D’bags: The Zero Escape series
  • ALL THE VOCALOIDS!

OK, now time for FB statuses that pretty much sum up everything:

Originally I had my Dangan Ronpa panel accepted but I asked if they could swap that out for the Zero Escape one, & they graciously obliged me of my request…so now I’m beyond excited (& have made it top priority to beat VLR) for this panel. If you’re going to be there & are a fan of the series, please come to this panel! Now that this is on the roster, gotta dig out my Dio cosplay, fix up a few things, & troll the f**k out of ppl. when the time comes 😀 Now, .hack & Bleach did really well last year & I hope they will again, esp. Bleach (b/c there’s so much WTF?! happening now that I can only pray my audience is equally hype to talk about it), & Diamonds in the Rough has been going OK, but still needs fine-tuning, but at least this iteration mentions the fact it’s focusing on JRPGs, which are pretty much the only games I play.

Then there’s the Vocaloid one…I forgot how much time I asked for for this (new thing I need to start being anal retentive about when taking notes/record keeping), but clearly I’m only going to be scratching the surface seeing as how there are so G.D. many (@.@) Still, can’t wait to do this panel XD First Vocaloid one, so I’m super excited! Even better: I’ll be in my Pride!/Daughter of Evil Rin cosplay w/ all the frills & lace :3 Gonna be good times ^.^

Anime Boston honestly was one of my fav cons last year, & honestly a potential Otakon replacement, so I’m super looking forward to it this year, esp. w/ my cosplay line-up 😀 Also, this year’s/con’s going to be hilarious since every cosplay I have is for some photoshoot or another &/or panel, like w/ Grimmjow, Dio, & potentially Rin. If you’re going, hope to see you there =^.^=

Still have a lot wait-listed, the only thing I’m really waiting on is the yaoi/bara one, since I’m supposed to be doing that w/ someone, so I have my fingers crossed on that one.  I said it before, but you don’t understand how super hype I am for the Zero Escape panel, & I pray to every kami that it has a good turnout w/ other ppl. equally hype that there’s a place where they can talk about this lovely series XD

Besides that, lots of cosplay plans from various series that I’m hype to do. This is probably the most hype cosplay track I’ve had in a while in which case practically everything is for a photoshoot/panel like I mentioned earlier.

This is def going to be a year to remember @ AB & I can’t wait to have everything done for it ^.^

Ohayocon 2016 Panels

The short; panels I have accepted:

The long, tl;dr version (straight from FB):
Woop woop~!
Got panels accepted for Ohayocon 2016, which is great b/c I’m pretty much committed to it at this point (w/ other ppl. literally along for the ride).

3 are great & I’ve done them before so it won’t be that much to get together & 1 is just HolyFingXmasOnAStickIcantBelieve–!? *fangirling in pure ecstasy/terror intensifies*

+Bleach: Shunpou Edition+
Like, ppl. give Bleach a lot of crap (b/c it’s terrible but that’s besides the point 😉 ) but this is the main panel that gets accepted at cons. So, take that haters XD 😛

+Did You Just Say Bara?!+
Have some things I need to change/sections I want to add, but since I gave this so recently it won’t be too hard/difficult to mod things.

+Sengoku Era Figures & Their Media Portrayals+
Same thing as the bara panel, already had a chance to do this, so there’s not too much I need to change/update.

& the main clusterf**k/super fangirl/freakout panel acceptance:
+Fate Universe: The Noblest Of All Phantasms+
Now, this is literally the only panel from my original set I gave at AUSA 2012 that I haven’t retired/indefinitely suspended yet, namely due to it not getting accepted *anywhere* since then, so I’m beyond hype for this 😀 I mean, it’s to the degree that I haven’t really seen any Type Moon/Fate panels at any of the cons I’ve gone to since (I think only 3-4 total, every case it was there the 1 year but then never again), which is why I was hype when there was one at AUSA [this year] but sad I couldn’t stay the whole time.

I could go on about this but the main thing is, like my 1st .hack panel, there’s *a lot* to cover, which is why it’s the only panel I have that’s still 2 hours long, & there’s even more I need to catch up on (last time I did this, Fate/Zero just recently ended & there was no UBW anime), so that’s going to be a massive research endeavor (@.@) In either case, it’s also why I *need* to do a Fate cosplay now (help me decide here [mobile app]: http://aminoapps.com/p/hd4pi!) & am trying to arrange a photoshoot afterwards for any/all Fate cosplayers like at the panel I saw at AUSA this year, which is why I’m asking for help on how to get one set-up.

So, super excite, just hope my job won’t conflict w/ this, & looking forward to catching back up on Fate things ^.^

All that being said, I’m truly both excited & exasperated at the idea of finally being able to do my Fate panel again.  I’m going to do my best to get some photographers together to do a mini shoot after the panel as well as get word out that there’s a mini shoot at all, but I won’t really be able to do all that until I find out specifics.  Also, since this will be my first time attending the con, I’m not all that sure where would be good locations to arrange shoots since, wtf would I know, I’ve never been there ~.~’  So, if you have some advice on this, please feel free to share.

Anyway, since this was one of my more research heavy panels, as well as one of the ones pre-‘presenter view’ in PowerPoint skillz, I’m basically going to have to make this panel from scratch…fun times (@.@)  It’s great b/c I will be free a little bit before I start this new job, so I can put a concentrated effort into this, fixing up the other panels, cosplays, & a whole bunch of other stuff, but I can actually at least kinda focus vs. be super homed in on work stuff.  Either way, hyped to be doing Fate stuff again.  From what I can tell from how this originally went & other Fate/Type Moon panels, I’m pretty sure I can get a decent sized crowd, so I’ll at least know all my work/effort will be worth it in the end.

 

OK, now to get started on redoing Sloth! Miku, since I originally had a dress-con/7 Deadly Sins Vocaloid cosplay theme, do more stuff setting up my apartment, & just keeping busy in general.
