AX & Ota Canceled

It was announced last week but Anime Expo is canceled for the year.

Today Otakon has also announced cancelling for this year.

Not complaining but announcing for posterity sake. However, with these 2 cons canceled my July is now super free, so back to getting neck deep in gaming & photography 😅

Momocon Officially Canceled

Momocon made a statement officially announcing they’re canceling their 2020 event as well as their 2021 dates.

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.

Regardless, stay safe out there, friends.

AWA 2020 Panels

Panels I got accepted so far for AWA this year:

  • Figures to the Max!; CGC – Panel Room 103, 10/30/2020, 4:45pm – 5:45p
  • Pass the Haterade!: Most Hated Anime (& Gaming) Characters; CGC – Panel Room 103, 10/30/2020, 10:45pm – 11:45p

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 🤷🏿‍♀️😩

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 😎👌🏾

Another Panel for AB..?

So, found out late yesterday I have another panel accepted for AB:

  • Yaoi & Bara Tropes & Trends 4: No Lube Required (18+)
    • Fri/Sat., Apr 19/20, 12:30-1:30am in Hynes Panel 311

Like, awesomesauce, but wish I wasn’t made aware of it less than a week from the con, but I’ll persevere nonetheless 😅😅😅

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 😅😅😅

AWA 2018 Panels

Just recently heard back from the AWA panel team about panels, here’s what I’ll have this year:

  • Figures to the Max! Blinded by B00bs Edition (18+)
  • Pass the Haterade!: Most Hated Characters in Anime (18+)
  • Defaming the Sacred!: Critical Looks At Popular & Classic Anime
  • Final Fantasy: Love It or Hate It, They Still Have All Your $$$
  • Sit Down, STFU, & Play This J-RPG (Deluxe Edition)
  • The State of the Anime Community: Past, Present, & Future

I’m especially excited for both of the 18+ panels I’ll have, but I’m super excited about this roster in general. Looking forward to both panel & cosplay suicide this year 😅💀👻

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.
