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 CosplayFabrics.com 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!

Friday
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

Saturday
(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

Sunday
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!

Yaya Han is a costume designer, model and cosplay entertainer with over a decade of experience. After discovering cosplay at Anime Expo in 1999, she quickly absorbed the heart and soul of costume design and creation. To this day Yaya has made close to 300 costumes in the genres of anime/manga, comic books, video games, sci-fi and her own original designs.
Over the years, Yaya has build a successful business in the cosplay community, creating a popular cosplay accessories line that is available online and at conventions, as well as her line of Yaya Han Brand merchandising. Her intricate and lavish creations have won awards and acclaim nationwide, and she has been invited to appear as a Guest, Panelist, Judge, Performer and Host to over 100 conventions and other events all over the world. Yaya's impact on the world of cosplay has been so great that she has been a Guest Judge on 2 seasons of TBS TV Network's "King of the Nerds" competition show, featured in a documentary about cosplay called "Cosplay - Crafting a Secret Identity", as well as is starring in the Syfy (Space) TV Network Docu-Series "Heroes of Cosplay".
But, no matter where Cosplay has taken her professionally, Yaya strives to stay true to what got her into this field originally - fun and creativity.
Through hard work, unmatched passion and infectious enthusiasm, Yaya has helped Cosplay gain respect and integrity as an artform in the fandom world and art communities, and her decade long campaign for creativity has helped raise Cosplay to the standards we know today. Everyday, Yaya continues to pave the path for the beloved art and lifestyle we know as Costume Play.

Hola Yaya, it's so great to see you here at DA too, I met you a few years ago in an Expocomic's here in Veracruz. My best friend was Hotaru (sailor saturn) from Sailor Moon. You're a great source of inspiration for both, keep the great work and congrats for the amazing talent!
Hugs!

Hey Yaya, just wanted to let you now that I'm a huge fan of yours and have been keeping track of your cosplays for awhile now. You're such an inspiration and you should con't to always do your best. Hopefully one day soon I'll get my first cosplay costume off the ground. But until then, I have some artworks here on deviant art (I'm an animator by the way) so if you get the chance to check them out and/or leave a comment that'd be cool!! Here's hoping to your continued success and maybe hearing from you, LoL. Later!! :w00t: :w00t:
