MASSIVE MOFO SITE UPDATE~! (worthy of all the caps)

So, just had a huge update across the site of multiple pages.  They are:

With this massive update, all the resources, lists of panels, cons coming up, etc. is now up-to-date~!  Additionally, I’ve created a new page (that’s still a work-in-progress) for keeping track of all my new costumes over the years:

New Cosplays Per Year

Last year I had a whopping 24 new costumes (holy f’ing sheezus) & I hope I don’t kill myself the same way this year as I did last year.  Like, seriously, I had 3 new ones for Anime Boston alone X/ (Sinbad from Magi, Pride! Rin from the 7 Deadly Sins Vocaloid series, & Rajaion from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn/Path of Radiance; nvm that I remade Dio’s coat ~.~)

Speaking of Anime Boston, got some panels for you!

  • Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls
  • Let’s Go to ‘The World’: A Panel About the .Hack Games
  • Defaming the Sacred!: Critiques on Popular Anime
  • Have You Seen This Anime? Reminisce & Recommend
  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition (side order of J-RPGs)
  • Co-paneling on my friend’s JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure panel

Super excited for this year’s panel selection as I am every year, but especially hype to be helping my friend w/ her JJBA panel…hence why I’m going to have a JJBA cosplay theme ^.^  Even more hyped that I decided to sacrifice myself to the Aztec Fitness gods & cosplay Ultimate Lifeform Kars. Hype doesn’t even come close to describe how excited I am for this cosplay.

Lastly, finally got around to calculating everything for last year; 24 new costumes & 16 cons total (mostly due to moonlighting in the Roadshow team for AUSA)…I’m already up to 12 planned for 2017…f*ck me (@.@)

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 ^.^;

Anyway, first Ichibancon panels:

  • Have You Seen This Anime? Reminisce & Recommend ~ Thursday, 10p-midnight, Events 4
  • Final Fantasy: Love It or Hate It They Still Have All Your $$$ ~ Thursday, midnight – 1am, Events 4
  • How -to Guide for Debating Fandom (with %90 Less Butthurt!) ~ Friday, 1a – 2a, Events 3
  • Bleach : Shunpou Edition ~ Saturday, 1p – 2p, Events 3
  • Defaming the Sacred!: Critiques on Popular Anime ~ Saturday, 9p – 11p, Events 5
  • ALL THE VOCALOIDS ~ Sunday, noon – 1p, Events 6

MAGfest panel (ikr? totes surprised I got a panel too >_>):

  • 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 ~^.^~

Sangawa Project Panels GET~!

​Non-stop panel train! This time panels for Sangawa Project ^.^

  • Sengoku Era Figures & Their Media Portrayals
  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition
  • Yurei, Yokai, &  School Girls

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 ^.^ (#.#)

Nekocon Panels GET~!

So, got these panels accepted for Nekocon this year:

Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls – Sat., Panel 4, 1:30-3:30pm

This panel will take a look at Japanese myth & lore shown in various anime as well as list the various types of yurei, yokai, & oni that tend to pop up.


Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition – Sat., Panel 4, 10pm-Midnight
Covering some less than stellar games/series that you should still give a chance despite their many flaws with a particular focus on several JRPG games/series. Audience participation is encouraged!

Have You Seen This Anime? Reminisce & Recommend – Sun., Panel 3, 1:30-3pm
“Have you seen this anime?” A question many of us have probably asked other anime fans at one point or another, & here’s my panel with the same premise in mind recounting some of my favorite anime from days of yore & recommending some along the way.


I’ll post my line up later since there’s too many cosplay things going on right now. See you at Neko (& make sure to stop by the Anime USA booth) ^.^

Motto AUSA 2016 Panels

​Excite~! Got 2 more panels accepted for AUSA, bringing the grand total to 4. Now I have…

  • I’m At Your Service: Servants of the Fate Universe – Saturday, 12pm – 1pm in Panel 5

  • But What Is “Evil”? Morality & Ethics in the Fate Universe – Saturday, 7pm – 8pm in Panel 3.

  • Guropoid: Recounting Grotesque & WTF?! Vocaloid Videos – Saturday, 11:30pm – 1am in Panel 4.

  • Defaming the Sacred!: Critiques on Popular Anime – Friday, 5pm – 7pm in Pop Up 3

So, 2 Fate/Trash, 1 Vocal-trash, & 1 where I denounce everything you & I like as being trash…good times :3 Incidentally, definitely going to have to do a Fate shoot now ^.^

As soon as I find out the times for everything, I will begin scheduling the shoot. I’m planning on using the same person I had for Ota for this Type Moon shoot since they were such a bro & are going to be there as well.

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) ^.^
