Hellooooo everyone! Not much from me on the DA journal front lately, but I've been trying to upload new photos from Katsucon at least.

Basically - I have done 4 conventions back to back so far, with long work days in between, and I have 3 (or 4) more to go! OH BOY!

I knew this convention tour would be hard on my body, but it has been so worth it!! I've spoken passionately about cosplay at several panels and met countless incredible people along the way, who love this art form just as much as I do. The whirlwind of social interactions day after day has overwhelmed my senses, and reinstated my responsibility as an ambassador of cosplay. I am so thankful for the path my life has taken me on, and am excited to continue down it.

Next up for me is J-Popcon in Copenhagen, Denmark!! I have never been to Denmark and am excited to meet cosplayers and fellow fans there, as well as help pick the Danish representatives for 3 important international competitions. I fly out to Germany in 12 hours to visit my dear mom (who I miss every day because she lives so far away from me) and then we both with fly to Copenhagen on Thursday. I'm gonna leave my cosplay choices as a surprise for now hahaha.

Then I come home and work on a super important daunting project that I can't talk about yet. But it sadly had to make me cancel my guest appearance at Con-nichiwa in Tucson, AZ. I abhor scheduling conflicts but they are inevitable these days with the growth of the geek conventions scene and cosplay community. As a business owner, I have to consider my company and it's future first. :(

I will however be at Anime Matsuri on Easter weekend as a Cosplay Guest again, and will help judge their costume contest as well as host the World Cosplay Summit US Finals.

My tour ends in Kansas City the first weekend in April, at Planet Comic Con. I literally will get home the DAY before my birthday and probably spend it in bed sleeping lol. After a weekend OFF (HOLY CRAP!!!!), I will be guesting at Boston Comic Con. But more on that later.

If you'll be at any of these events, give me a shout here on DA! And a fist bump when you see me at the cons!

How awesome that you are coming to Denmark. :) I don't think I'll be at J-Popcon, but I think it will be a great experience for the peopel there to meet such a seasoned and passionate cosplayer.

Just wish we could get you to come to MTAC Easter weekend. But we know you have other cons that you want to be a part of. Our MTAC Ball is called "The Grand Galloping Gala", which is My Little Pony theme related.

Yaya, what you have done and continue to do for the cosplay community is amazing! I know I'm not alone in saying that I look up to you and that you inspire me to keep doing what I love. I got to see you at Katsucon and you were totally awesome. Its so wonderful how welcoming you are to other cosplayers and fans and that you continue to produce amazing, innovative art. Can't wait for your future works! And like many have said, get some well deserved rest soon~
