Posting from my hotel room in Austin, TX. After a much too exciting day and a half of making products, shipping orders, packing, locking my key inside the car, last minute errands and airport fun times, I am laying in bed in the comfy At&T hotel, where Ikkicon day zero is already happenin', RELAXING. It's pretty awesome.

This is what I'll be wearing this weekend!

Friday: Gothic Princess, Saturday: NEW COSPLAY DEBUT!, Sunday: Rarity - MLP!

I am hosting 2 panels this weekend, details on the convention schedule.

I updated my travel schedule with three new convention guest appearances, which starts off 2012 with a bang and a 5 week convention tour for me. Here are the 4 upcoming shows while I'm waiting on confirmation on the last one.

Ikkicon: 30th Dec 2011 - 1st Jan 2012, Austin, TX  *Cosplay Guest and Vendor*

Sukoshicon: 7th - 8th Jan, Destin, FL *Guest of Honor and Vendor* Register with code:yayafan2011 and receive $5 off!!

Alburquerque Comic Con: 13th - 15th Jan, Albuquerque, NM *Anime Guest and Vendor*  

Boomcon: 21st - 22nd Jan, Costa Rica  *Cosplay Guest*

Why are so many cons going on simultaneously in January?! I was torn  between Sukoshicon, ALA and Arizona Comic Con for next weekend, but in  the end my desire to be ON THE BEACH won out. Yes, Sukoshicon is held ON THE FRIGGING BEACH in the same gorgeous resort hotel as Anime South a few years back, where I was also a Guest and had a fantastic experience. I am excited to return to Destin and enjoy a weekend of anime, cosplay and ocean.

If you are going to Sukoshicon but have not registered yet, use this code:yayafan2011 and receive $5 off!!

More from me after this weekend's shenanigans, have a happy new year, everyone!

Good luck with all your con hopping! Don't tire yourself out too much. Do you plan on coming to any cons on the east coast?

A con on a beach? That's something I've never heard of! Sounds amazing, really wish I was in the US now!

Have fun! ^^
