Posting from happy Mexico right now! I'm here this weekend as a Guest at Mottocon, a small but packed and adorable convention near Monterrey, Mexico. Though the event is only Saturday and Sunday, I flew here on Thursday to spend time with my friends Faustino and Alesa, and their wonderful family. We went to the movies (where the chairs are reclining couches and you can order sushi and a martini from your seat lol), shopping and visited Alesa's dance studio and esoteric store. Yesterday I wore Black Cat to Mottocon and did a surprisingly refreshing Q&A session, where many people asked good questions and made me feel very welcome. I hung out at the CosplayMix magazine booth where I signed copies with my cover and took photos with the attendees. Coming from the States, it's a completely different experience to cosplay in Mexico.
Today I'll be wearing Dawn (sans wings) and doing a makeup workshop and judging their costume contest. I won't be leaving till Tuesday afternoon so tomorrow we have a free day to go shopping and to a Spa. I've never been! Exciting.

After Mexico I don't have a show till Saboten Con on Halloween weekend. I plan to straighten up the house a lot, especially by sewing room which has been through a hurricane it seems. Around the 20th we're driving down to Orlando to visit friends and go to Halloween Horror Nights. I am so happy to be going on a non-con related trip and have no obligations or work haha.

I'll make a separate post about Saboten Con once it gets closer to the date and I have my schedule sorted out.

A friend of mine once told me he hated theaters in the US, but here... you just won't get him of the cinema...
The place yayacosplay might be refering to... is Cinepolis VIP, and it's one hell of an expensive place, however... it's cheaper than a normal cinema in the united states.
Like... 6.50 dollars a ticket.

Be very careful. Mexico is an extremely dangerous place. Though I am sure you are visiting the more civilised areas of Mexico, make sure to stay away from the more ghetto neighborhoods. In some areas of Mexico there is literally total anarchy. You can pay the police 20 US dollars and they will beat the crap out of someone - and if someone pays them they could do the same.

You should be alright. I hope you have a great time while there.

WTF!?
You should get out more, you know.. Maybe even believe less of what you see in TV.

I have a soldier friend that grew up in Mexico. He's been to the deeper parts of it. This is not a tale from Unsolved Mysteries. This is a story of a personal experience.

Personal experience? You just said a friend told you. He might be crazy or even made up by you.
I've lived for 23 years in several cities and visited most parts of México and I don't think it's so dangerous like you see in the news, some parts may be dangerous but just like any other countries.

Please stop giving such lousy and unfounded advise.

Dude.. calm down, lol. I think you're really overreacting..

I'm sorry if I offended you. But I'd rather not carry on an argument on Ms. Yaya's profile here, that's pretty rude.

Thank you for the advise - I've been to Mexico around 15 times in the past three years and always had a blast here. I am in Monterrey now, which is a more modern and civilized city than many in the United States. I am always well taken care of, for real.
