AWA 2018 Panels & Times

Still presently at CCE while I’m posting this but found out my panel times for AWA this year. Hoping to get the 3a one’s time changed but super hype for this year otherwise 😁😁😁

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 😅💀👻

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 ^.^
