Since I haven't updated this in forever, here's a list of things coming up with Kat's Play.
July 18 - 20: Say hello to Hoshicon's new cosplay coordinator! Along with host/MC Headphone Mike, I'll be running everything related to cosplay! If it looks like I don't know what I'm doing, it's because I don't. Please be gentle!
August 8 - 10: You asked for it and you got it! Kat's Play is bringing back the Hellsing panel to Otakon. Day and time are TBA.
January 1 - 4: Ring in the new year with Ichibancon! I won't be hard to find as I'm now a GM for the LARP. Come by and play a little or just to say hi!
I'm still waiting hear back on panels for A
You may have noticed that the prices on my gallery have jumped significantly. This is because I have been charging $100 for every 10 hours (or "per day") of labor and then $15 for each hour after that. I did this to stay competitive with Chinese dealers and my fellow American commissioners.
However, I can't keep doing this. I have been agonizing over this dilemma for a year and I've finally come to the decision that I need to raise my prices. So, after my current batch of commissions is done, I'm putting an end to my "per day" ($100/day where 10 hours is a "day") rate and charging a flat $15 for each hour of labor.
For example, a 10-hour jo
I just realized it's been forever since I updated my journal on here.
So here's the skinny...
- Volunteered for Funimation at AWA for the first time. It was a blast.
- Did my first ever panels at AWA, Nekocon, AUSA, Ichibancon and Katsucon.
- Won my first "best LARPer" award at Ichibancon as Dorothy Wainright from Big O.
- Found out during AWA that my father had a life insurance policy that neither his wife nor my mom could touch. Half of the $38K policy went to pay off my Citibank card and car loan. So now I only have my main credit card to pay down.
It's been a strange year since Dad died. But I'm looking forward to making this yea
For those that don't follow my Facebook, I regret to inform you that my father passed last night. He had several strokes on the rear of his brain last week. The doctors at Wake Med did everything they could for him, but it was all but a foregone conclusion. His wife, Anne, made the decision to disconnect his life support yesterday afternoon and he passed right as my brother and I were pulling into the hospital. We have made our peace, thanked Anne for the 12 years she was with him, and are doing okay, all things considered.
We are still coming to Animazement, but we may have to duck out periodically for reflection and a cry. Until June 1, Ka

Why is it that in the week leading up to a big convention that I have an absolutely horrible night at work?! Is that the lab's way of telling me that I can't take time off EVAR or w
