I am a Cosplay Guest again this year, alongside the lovely Amazon Mandy, and I have my hands full with events so here's the schedule!

ALL weekend - I have a booth inside the dealer room, and am offering the full line of products from my cosplay store, as well as signed photos and other goodies. When I am not at my panels or other programming, I will be at the booth, so come by and say hi.

ALL weekend - I have a spot inside the Cosplay Gallery, where a costume of mine will be displayed. I am not sure which to bring yet, potentially Dawn as it's new and way too big to wear around.

Saturday, Main Events, 7:00pm - I will be MCing the costume contest! After judging last year, this is a great chance to participate in the contest from a different perspective. Not sure yet if I will have a co-host, and also what I should wear!

And onto the Panels:

Friday, Galleria 103, 7:00pm - "Cosplay Posing Workshop" with Miko, Allison and maybe a couple other ladies:
You've made the costume, you've organized the photoshoot... but what are you going to do when you get there? Prepare to move around during this workshop, where we all will be working on posing for romance, drama and action. We will also be talking about flexibility and working out so that your poses can improve over time!

Friday, Galleria 103, 10:00pm - "Cosplay Q & A with Yaya Han":
Come for a candid chat with Yaya about all aspects of Cosplay. This is your chance to ask her questions on cosplay-related topics like how to get into modeling, Yaya's makeup tricks, the international cosplay scenes and conventions, costume contests and how to prepare for them, and more! There are also 10 years worth of Yaya's interesting stories about going to cons, making
costumes, dressing up and traveling world-wide in the name of Cosplay in store for you!

Friday, Galleria 103, 11:00pm - "Sociology of Cosplay" with Miko and Mandy (and who else?):
What is cosplay really? Why do cosplayers do what they do? This is your chance to ask anything about the hobby in an open discussion forum. Yes, anything. Last year we had cake, so perhaps there will be a surprise this year too!

Saturday, Galleria 103, 10:00pm - "Embellishing and Detailing Panel with Yaya Han":
Learn the many different techniques you can use to embellish your costumes and add interesting textures and details ! From beading to embroidering, Yaya will share her knowledge and show example costume pieces from her wardrobe.

I look forward to seeing everyone! Come to the panels and hang out with us!

I am SO glad that I ran into in the Dealer's Room Sunday! And it's true, you guys: she is SO beautiful in person. Gah! ^^ I should have that picture up that my friend took of me and you. It was an HONOR, really, to have met you and gotten a hug. You are an inspiration- no lie! Love you, Yaya!

I just got back from all of your panels today and I appreciated sitting in all of them. Unfortunately for me I won't be able to come tomorrow or the day after because of work but I definitely appreciated sitting in on your wisdom and experience.

I'll be showing up on Saturday! I seriously hope I can meet you!

I'll be in character though--so if you hear me speaking in a boston accent, it's because Harley Quinn speaks that way! ;D
