Gearing up for Katsucon

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 12, 2012, 9:42 AM
Hey guys!

So, finally a major convention rolls around!  As much as I hate missing out on Megacon this year, I'm so excited to be going to Katsucon in National Harbor, MD!

Since the preliminary round for the World Cosplay Summit is being held there, it's kind of a big deal. :XD: I'm not entering this year, but I'm so excited to be able to watch and support my friends who are entering. :heart:

Over the course of the weekend, I will be cosplaying:

:star: FRIDAY:  Miki from Idolmster (in her Pink Diamond stage outfit), as part of an Idolmster group! I'm pretty sure this will be the largest group I've yet to be a part of.

:star: SATURDAY AM:  Euphemia (Artbook Gown) from Code Geass
Lakeside Princess by MelfinaCosplay

:star: SATURDAY PM:  Utena from Utena the Movie
Utena Cosplay 4 by MelfinaCosplay

:star: SUNDAY:  Lisianthus/Sia from Shuffle! for a group
A Lisianthus in the Garden by MelfinaCosplay

And also, I'm learning a dance for the Idolmster group:…;<-- Hopefully this will pan out, and we'll be able to get video of it!

Of course, I'm leaving on the BEFORE crack-of-dawn, earliest flight I could get on Friday, which leaves at a painfully early 5:30am, and will hopefully get me into Washington DC by 11am (I have a layover in Atlanta, as 99% of flights out of Panhandle Florida do).  So, I'm getting as organized and packed up as possible this weekend, so that I won't have to scramble on my nights after work this week.  Because we ALL know how I feel about scrambling last minute. :XD:

So yeah! I'm really excited to be attending my first Katsucon, and I hope to see a lot of you there!

In other news:

:star: 2 WEEKS LEFT TO ENTER MY OC DRAWING CONTEST (NO, I WILL NOT SHUT UP ABOUT THIS :heart: ):…;<--- Please enter! I've got 6 entries so far, but I'd really like to get at least 10! So PLEASE, PLEASE spread the word to anyone that draws. Remember, PREMIUM SUBS and FREE ART to be won!!

:star: 50K Kiriban is going strong, and we're less than 1,000 pageviews away, guys! Thank you so much! :heart:

Until next time, take care! :heart:

D'awww, thanks so much!! :heart: I'm really glad you enjoyed seeing us in his video! We'll probably be doing another iM@S group again next year. I really appreciate your kind words! :blush:

As always, I really wish I could come, but alas....
I'm sure you'll have fun though, and I can't wait to go to cons with you again in a little over 6 months...UGH! I miss the anime scene and my Karen-chan!

Anyway, good luck, and I hope everything...and I mean EVERYTHING...pans out okay. ;)
I'm looking forward to skyping with you when you get back for all the details!

Heeeee ^.^ Thanks a ton, Matt! I'm sorry that I'm just now replying to this! Anywho, I've got some more news (well, plans anyhow) regarding that, so mayhaps next weekend we can Skype? I'd say tonight at our usual time, but I know that's really short notice. ^^;

ARE YOU LADY? ;) Good luck learning the song, I adore a lot of the iM@S songs but learning the dances is just... ugh. xD;; It's a lot harder than it looks, and this coming from someone who's used to learning k-pop songs so I feel your pain! I'm sure your group will do great though, so I can't wait to see some videos!! :)

I'M LADY~~ :heart: :XD:

And thank you, I NEED ALL THE LUCK I CAN GET! And exactly, they ARE a lot harder than they look. :faint: I'll try not to disappoint!
