So now that it's more than halfway through November, it's time to recap a bit!
On November 9th, my partner in crime
and I presented a panel we called Cosplay 407
at MiniCon. It covered some of the finer points of cosplay and photography, in terms of how you can maximize what you get from a photoshoot as a cosplayer. Since our panel was slated for the first time slot at the same time that the con began, we were not sure how many people would attend. Regardless, before halfway through, the room had filled up which was really awesome. We are thinking of presenting this panel at ToraCon
to that audience. If there is interest, we may consider making this presentation into a video as we have been toying with the idea of starting a video channel that is full of helpful stuff for cosplayers.
If you are interested in seeing progress pics, upcoming events, helpful tutorials, and links to free or cheap stuff that is cosplay-relevant, feel free to follow us on our page Genesis Cosplay
We love Genesis the band and coupons. That is all.
First off, thank you for all the favs and comments on a normal basis. You guys are so wonderful and keep me motivated. It is rather difficult to fight the urge to just hibernate and sleep forever.
On another note, on 11-12-13, one of my photos was chosen as a Daily Deviation for cosplay. That was incredibly cool and really touching. I work and cosplay not expecting recognition of any kind and it is really mind-blowing to receive it. Thanks to all who viewed, commented, and faved. Kristen (the photographer) and I were really excited. Plus, it's nice to expose a rather obscure game.
Soooo, I have been busy with work and whatnot and this one is sneaking up quickly! I think I will make this giveaway "winner's choice" again. I have some hand-made jewelry as a prize or a selection of Tales prints/bookmarks created from my art. I'll post a pic and update the journal in the near future. All you need to do is screencap the 120K pageview and send me a note with a link to the image.
Tales of Symphonia
Now that the re-release is slated for 2014, Kotobukiya has also stepped up and made new Symphonia merch!
Up for sale are the Tales of Symphonia Unisonant rubber straps. Quantities are limited at 1 a piece so it is definitely first come-first serve.
You can buy them in my Storenvy for fast and easy checkout with Paypal (or Paypoop as I like to call it).
Cosplay & Convention Plans
Might try to get to this con because a friend has a hotel room and said hotel has free continental breakfast. LOL Actually, this has always been a con I had been interested in going to because I love music and gaming. If I go, we're planning to make Tales of Xillia Christmas outfits because the Gaylord National Harbor will still have the Christmas decorations up.
