Haha I really haven't kept up well with deviantART lately lol....

I got super sick after Boston Comic Con and then it was a mad dash to finish costumes for Dragoncon... now I have a few days to recover before I head off to Germany for Connichi and to visit my parents.

Here are some things of note that you should check out:

If you have been watching Heroes of Cosplay, read this review about the series: Comics Alliance watched the show carefully and thoughtfully and care a lot about the Cosplay community. See what they had to say: comicsalliance.com/heroes-cosplay-syfy-review-commentary-video-criticism/

I wrote a general post about cosplay that will hopefully help some peeps who have been struggling with things:

I also made a funny video with my friend Jessica about cosplay:

I wrote a post about how I started my cosplay business:

My cosplay friends and I are doing another charity project for Cosplay For A Cause!

I wrote two articles about how to prepare for a convention as a cosplayer:
www.facebook.com/notes/yaya-ha…

and tips for cosplaying at a con:

I started posting about people in the cosplay community who I think are great ambassadors. Read about:

Ejen of Cosplay In America:

And Kamui Cosplay:

Lastly, I made a little video while visiting Barbados a couple of weeks ago:

I happened to watch a few episodes of Heroes of Cosplay on the Space Channel (the few episodes are probably a year or so out of date by now) but I did love your overall costuming and acting for the Alice In Wonderland skit. :clap:

Ya Ya, you are an amazing person. I remember only two years ago sharing a limo with you at a con, and how genuine and honest you really are. You're taking your love for cosplay and sharing it with the world. Keep it up and remember to have fun!

Yeah, glad you posted that video with Jessica that cleared the air a bit, cuz' from what I watched on Heroes of Cosplay, it did come across almost as if you had utter disdain for her cosplay style.  So what would you say the percentage of the show is scripted?  Sorry, If I've got bad grammar lol.  You are really talented and put an AWFUL lot of effort into your costumes, and they come out AMAZING!!  About how much money does it take to buy all the materials to make your costumes?  Get some rest when you can  ;)

I'm planning a Red Riding Hood idea I've had in my head for 3 years now.. Your little tips on your Facebook are marvelous :D and just the In-Progress reports are very intriguing.
Your cosplays are always super amazing. Can't wait to see future ideas :D.
