So, recently picked up photography & started a new site, IG, & FB for that. Links below for those interested. Also, will be updating this blog soon w/ Katsu related stuff & updating any necessary page that has been somewhat neglected in my kinda hiatus.
Anyway, photog blog stuff…
Ooh boy, know I haven’t posted in 5ever & I’m way behind in con reports, which I do plan on catching up on, but some minor updates:
- Holiday Matsuri last year was really fun & the first time I truly enjoyed staffing in a while.
- End of December going into the New Year I had a lot of fun w/ friends; marathoned a mix of great & subpar anime + movies; & Korean freakin’ BBQ~~
- Got my DSLR camera & accessories so I can start playing n00b cosplay photographer♡ As far as the model of camera, got the Canon EOS Rebel T6i Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm IS STM Lens. Bought my bundle from eBay brand new & I love this camera XD
- Freakin’ (partial) gov’t shutdown b.s. begins ushering us into the new year.
- MAGfest was pretty fun, but I still dgaf about doing it for next year if I can’t score a free badge from any (legitimate) means >___> Gah, it’s the most overhyped con ever X/ Anyway, friends let me tag along their shoot Friday so I actually got to practice w/ my new camera.
- Finally marathoned Darling in the Franxx which I like to call ‘high quality trash’ 😏
- Generally trying to use this time; i.e., during this gov’t shutdown, to: catch up on chores, pack old cosplays away, finish some anime, get a head start on certain cosplay, & basically catch up on all types of backlogs.
To see a more regularly updated social media account, make sure to check my Instagram (djdatemasamune) as I’m fairly active on that.
Anyway, still need to update certain pages on this blog, which I also plan on doing at some point. See u at w/e convention I may run into u ^.^
Panel resources/presentations added for: AMA 2018, Otakon 2018, CCE 2018, & AWA 2018.
Check the Panel Resources page for all the newly added materials.
Decided to make a page listing all my panel descriptions to make it easier for submitting panels as well as give a basic blurb on any given panel I’ve ever presented:
Finally finished making all necessary updates to the blog~~!
Pages I updated:
May also be adding a page for the panel descriptions of all the panels I’ve ever presented for propriety sake as well but we’ll see ^.^
So, since I found I can access WordPress at the office, will be going through & updating a lot over the next few weeks.
However, if you attended any of my panels in the last year & need info covered in a panel not uploaded yet, please don’t hesitate to contact me using my contact form. I’ll gladly send over whatever info you’re looking for so you’re not just waiting like, “Wtf, when’s this biznitch gonna update things DX.”
Anyway, it may take a while to pull together & upload all the resource documents but at the very least I’m going to shoot for uploading PDFs of all the presentations. So, thanks for being patient…1 person looking for info (^.^;) but updates are happening…slowly but surely.
So, with the con over, & no panels for AUSA since I done goofed, gonna be still super f’ing busy 😣😣😣
With no panels for AUSA, that means I can focus on: updating the site, catching up on making posts to my FB page, working on a boatload of cosplays, planning other events, & general going crazy doing ALL THE THINGS. I already began the process but I’m slowly updating different pages on this site, but I’ll be sure to make a blog post whenever I add resource materials for a particular con/panels.
Anyway, just giving this quick update. Next post I’ll be making is for the sole purpose of having somewhere to hour my poll for what monster girl cosplay I should do for a group for Katsucon 2018 & another basic one going over my Nekocon experience.
Till then I’ll be busy doing too much in general 😧
Note: featured image logo of Nekocon by their artists. I take no credit for the artwork, just using it as an image for this post.
So, I know it’s been forever since I posted & I’m several cons behind for posting resources, etc. To be specific, these are the cons I’ve hit up in my impromptu hiatus & the panels I’ve hosted:
