It's only June but somehow the rest of my convention year is filling out very quickly! The cons I have left are Otakon, Anime USA, and Nekocon. I might hit up RVAcon in September since it's in my city but honestly I'm not very inclined to. BUT, this is what those cons look like for me so far:
Otakon: PLANS ARE IN DIRE NEED OF TRIMMING
Sumia - Fire Emblem Awakening [Photoshoot only]
Belly Dancer Judal - Magi [Photoshoot only unless I end up hanging out with :icon AthelCosplay: ]
Roxy Lalonde (default???) - Homestuck
Historia Reiss - Attack on Titan [With a full AoT group I'm fucking excited]
**MAYBE** Junko - Super Dangan Ronpa [ chularin.tumblr.com said I'm her headcanon Junko and wants to put me in it SO OK 8D]
**MAYBE** Date Night Rose - Homestuck
**MAYBE** Midna if whatthehaps.tumblr.com wants to bring back Link
Noiz - Dramatical Murder
Scanty - Panty and Stocking
(at this point Rachel and I will probably rewear something like Ymir/Christa)
No idea! Nothing serious.
Otakon went from everyone saying UGH I'M NOT GOING IT'S TERRIBLE to OH MAN WE ALL NEED TO SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN LET'S MEET AT OTA :I bulloney. Expect a lot of Ymir/Christa photos eheheheheh.
For Anime USA I want a cool gritty dark parking garage shoot for DMMD, or we could even use the DC metro for a futuristic look! And Rachel and I are resurrecting demon sisters one last time for a group with our friends that are doing Panty and Stocking. Hopefully we can use the old hotel as a backdrop for a shoot sohOW3HU.
Nekocon I'll be at for Saturday unless we come up with a panel to host and can get a free badge or something. Whatever I wear to that will probs be for comfsies.
**FOR OTAKON I NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER WHO IS COMFORTABLE WITH DRIVING TO A LOCATION** If I can find an appropriate field/wooded area I'd like to do a photoshoot with Sumia there. Let me know if you're interested. I know its crappy of a cosplayer to put out an APB for photographers but I don't know who'd be comfortable with that =/
In July Elysiam Entertainment and I will be cooking up something fantastic. It involves Ryoko, that's all I can say <3
I've used the term "photoshoot" like five million times here and for a reason. I have no plans on leaving the cosplay community but due to dad's cancer and my graduation next year, 2013 is going to be the last "6 cons a year" year for me for a while. I'll still be cosplaying, just at a slower pace. I'm consciously putting more effort in to quality over quantity while life forces me to slow down. I want to have something to show while I still have the time to show things. Get it?
Dad just finished round 5. He was scheduled for 8 but the doctors think 6 or 7 might be enough. They're testing him to see if he's in remission soon.
How are all of you? Who's going to Otakon?
