Hey everyone!

So, it's been an absolutely crazy time since I last updated y'all (which was about a month and a half ago? Wow). So, let's break down Katsucon.

Snow. Shitty driving conditions. More snow.

So, I altered my travel plans and took off on Wednesday instead of Thursday. FireLilyCosplay was kind enough to offer me crash space, and I drove through the worst of the storm right before I got to her place. So we dug out our cars on Thursday, and headed to the con while there was a lull. Made it safely to the con center, and hung out with tons of awesome people. Honestly, the rest of my weekend was a blur. Despite swearing that I wasn't going to do tons of shoots like last year ("Oh, I totally won't do 46 this year, no way!")...I ended up doing 43 in LESS TIME than last year. My nights were hanging out with people, running around, drinking (looooots of drinking), and just catching up with people.

Katsucon was a LOT of fun for me. And I'm MUCH happier with the quality of work that I produced. I saw so many friends, and honestly, it was just a good time for me. It was really nice to get away and see everyone. Some people couldn't make it in due to the weather, which was super sad, but overall, I don't care what anyone says, Katsucon was a success in my opinion. I got to work with new people who are MEGA talented, see friends, and just be around a ton of nerdiness. Good times, for me anyways.

So, over the next few weeks, you'll see me begin to post Katsucon photos. Honestly, I'm not going to be posting a ton of them here. I'm trying to use this site less. In part because I'm not thrilled with certain things on here, and because it's time for me to get serious with building my own website and using that as a main source of information. I'll be pulling down a majority of the photos from before 2013 as soon as I get some free time. So the best stuff from Katsu will get put up here, and for anything else, you can check out my cospix account! (cospix.net/150/ )

What else? If you haven't read the web comic I keep plugging on Facebook, I recommend you check it out! www.geekerydickery.com/

Also, I've been contributing to MurderNurse's livestream! It's every Friday around 10pm! You can check out her page for more information: www.facebook.com/pages/Murder-…


That's all for now. So far, the next entry will be tips and tricks for cosplay photography. If anyone has any specific questions they'd like me to answer, please message me or comment here in this journal, and I'll answer!

How's everyone doing? What are your upcoming convention plans? Costume plans? Let me know in the comments!


...see you space cowboys...

You're very welcome! You and CosplayLovePro did an amazing job! I love Eva and GL, so every time I see those costumes, I'm guilty of fanboy-ing XD

And thank you very much for your compliment about my work XD I'm not sure where you're seeing it, but I'm glad it's getting out there.

I've seen a lot of my cosplay friends do photoshoots with you.
Are you maybe attending Zenkaikon?
I'd love to do a shoot or two with you sometime!

Sadly, despite living pretty close to Zenkai, I won't be attending this year :/

I'll be at the Ellicott City Photoshoot, Dragon Con, and Baltimore Comic Con this year though! I also travel for private shoots depending on distance!
