AB Panel Resources Incoming

By the end of the week (hopefully) I will have all my resources up for the panels I presented this past weekend & have another blog post announcing so.
Also, for anyone that attended my Fate panel, forgot 2 huge disclaimers since I was rushing so much:

  • I was only skimming the surface so of course I left out some things. Fate stuff is too dense to completely cover in less than 90 minutes, so hopefully ppl. are understanding;
  • For the various series, I focused more on things that either had anime or a game of some sort & super skipped over a lot of the side novels, manga, etc. cause, again, Fate is super dense & there’s no way I’d have time covering all that.

Of course, fully expecting somewhere on the internets for someone to go “she didn’t know what she was talking about/I know more/I could have hosted the panel (better)” but whaddya gonna do?

Besides this, someone who attended the panel gave me this additional resources for finding out things about the Fate universe: Beast’s Lair. So, check that out when you have the chance.

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 ~^.^~

Thank kami these are panels I’ve already done, so I don’t have to worry about killing myself getting these together….t least more than what I already have ^.^ (#.#)

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) ^.^

AWA 2016 Photoshoots

Here are all the photoshoots I’ll be hosting for AWA this year. Please share them with any of your friends & get the word out there:

Where’ve You Been?!

In short: Otakon prep.  Doing 7 costumes means I’ve been drowning in fabrics, work related things, personal things, & general procrastination.  Since I got none of 16 panels submitted to Ota accepted (seriously, you have to be practically sucking someone on staff’s d*** to get anything accepted but hopefully it’ll change when they move next year), going to to be throwing myself into cosmaking & socializing.

Anyway, below are the costumes I’m doing:

Since I generally hate when ppl. cosplay a bunch of stuff just for bragging rights, keep switching costumes until they find one they get a lot of pics, etc., every costume has a shoot planned for it. There’s 2 Type Moon/Fate shoots & the Zero Escape shoot I’m hosting (not the Fate one, the Type Moon one), I’m also going to one of the Fire Emblem shoots, I’m going to a mini Evil Within shoot some time Thursday, & a Magi shoot.  My Ashera costume is also going to be my Hall Costume Contest entry.  The only costume that’s a mix of ‘just b/c’ & somewhat planned for a mini shoot is Atrum.  It was originally supposed to be Prince Akio (Utena) vs. Atrum, but due to coming up with some awesome props to work on, I had to do it.

In addition to that, everything I submitted to AWA (maybe 14-16 panels) was wait-listed ~.~ Like, hopefully I get something accepted but as of right now I ain’t got jack sh*t X/  Besides that I fortunately was able to find a hotel room with a friend that I’ve been wanting to room with at some point, so that’s a huge plus.  We’ll be cosplaying obscure JRPG stuff with each other so that’ll be fun.

On the brighter side, I know at least 2 cons I will definitely have panels, I know what they are, & both cases I’m super excited.  One con will be later this year, around October, & the other next year around February.  Can’t release the details yet, but I know I’ll have panels.

So, that’s what I’ve been up to.  Probably going to have one or 2 blogs post Ota, otherwise, it’s probably going to be several dry spells coming up where I’m MIA (however, if you keep track of my Twitter or FB page, it will seem quite the contrary).  Anyway, hope I see some of you at Ota ^.^

Besides that cosplay wise I’m breaking out my fav Dio (Virtue’s Last Reward) again, Pride! Rin (Vocaloid), & Heroine X (I swear to kami, this time I’ll finish it X/). Due to panel stuff I’ll also be bringing Sloth! Miku or Gluttony! Meiko, or doing another cosplay entirely based off one of the videos I’m showing in my Guropoid panel. Another cosplay I’m doing is Kizami Yuuya (Corpse Party) b/c I want to do a mofo CP shoot >.> Hopefully that works out…& there’s a Yuka *w*

If you’re going hope to see you there 😀 

That being said, here are the event pages for:

Now, as I start building up my compendium of f***ed up Vocaloid videos, I’ll be picking my panel specific cosplay from there.  Anyway, see you there ^.^
