Hey guys, I have my (jam packed) Schedule for C2E2!! I'm so pumped for this con!!

First of all, my home base for the weekend will be Booth 643, right next to the Booth! This is where all of my signings will take place, and where my cosplay merchandise will be available. Please come by for a chat, a selfie, and to take a look at my new fabric collection, available at Jo-Ann Fabrics!

Panel: How to Run a Cosplay Related Business - 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM, Room S401
Official Photo Op - 1:30pm, Epic Photo Ops Area
Autograph Signing - 2pm - 6pm, Booth 643

(My morning hours will be devoted to craftsmanship judging for the Cosplay Championship)
Official Photo Op - 3:30pm, Epic Photo Ops Area

Autograph Signing - 4:15pm - 6pm, Booth 643
Crown Championship of Cosplay - Judge - 7pm, Main Stage 406

Autograph Signing - 10:30am- 11:30am, Booth 643
Official Photo Op - 11:45am, Epic Photo Ops Area
Panel: Cosplay Competitions, Explained - 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM, Room S402
Autograph Signing - 4pm- 5pm, Booth 643

I'm beyond excited about the Crown Championship of Cosplay, and to meet contestants from all around the country, as well as international qualifiers. Please come see the stage competition if you have time on Saturday, 7pm, because it will be a phenomenal display of costuming talent!
The two panels I chose to present at C2E2 are topics I am very passionate about. Please come to them if you're interested in ways to start a creative small business, or are curious about how cosplay competitions are run and judged!

It was lovely for C2E2 to ask me to participate in official Photo Ops! It's a guaranteed way to get a nice, professionally taken photo together, and I will be more than happy to sign it for you!

Less than a month left until we party in Chicago! See you there!

Also never knew you had a deviantART account.

Hello Yaya,
I am GinTai, new to deviantart, but I have to admit that your work is amazing. The costumes and poses in the photos in my eyes have a great harmony. I can't wait to see what comes next. Please accept my appreciation for your work.
