YoumaCon and Delayed Otakon Report

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 25, 2011, 7:13 AM
So sorry I'm terrible at updating!!!  I always forget!  Well Otakon was a BLAST! Debuted a lot of the costumes I had, as well as FINALLY winning an award for Terra!!! I kept getting honorable mentions or some lower sort of award and I was craving that win for her with the amount of work i put in it!!!  And it turned out to be OTAKON of all places!  I was ecstatic.

BEST JOURNEYMAN OTAKON 2011

YOUMACON
I'll be attending youmacon this year instead of Sugoicon.  Even though sugoicon is closer, i just didn't like it at all. No offense to those that do.  So i'll be making my way north!  I'm fixing up a lot of my costumes and debuting a couple!  Here is my list so far:

:bulletyellow: FemLink (Legend of Zelda)
:bulletred: Princess Serenity (Sailor Moon)
:bulletyellow: Gertrude Yorkes (Runaways)
:bulletred: Ravager (DC comics)

I'm thinking of submitting FemLink and Serenity to the Cosplay contest.  Depends on what i can finish on time.

For those of you going to Youma and see me, please say hi! ^_^

Well I wish i could go to Katsucon, but its too much travelling. I am going to AnimeBoston tho! I'm getting a free flight to it! And then of course Otakon!!!

You should try Acen sometime! It's my second favorite!

I would love to but I don't have money to fly >.< I barely have enough money for my costumes so I choose them sparingly XD

Yeah got a full lineup but only doing these for Private shoots since I'll be working the whole con too. And of course I won't be eating much like I always do but later on nights I'll eat. And I fix up a few of my cosplays just need to wash a couple of wigs and style them next week.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited! I wants to give you a big hug! Especially as Serenity~ I'll be in the AA most of the time, but Lilly-chan and I are also doing one of the Sailormoon panels.

XD!!!!!!!!!! Yay! I don't know if i'll stay in Serenity too long. I'm debating which one I want to walk on stage in, either FemLink or Serenity. I have two weeks to decide!!!

When is your panel? If it's on Saturday there could be the chance I'll show up as Serenity XP

Sadly it won't be sat, they were full up, we ended up having to put it on Friday if I recall. I'm still excited about it though, even more excited that I get to sell there again it has been a few years since I've been able to, ran into work. XD;;;
