Spring finally comes to the Midwest after a long, harsh winter. I missed Alma con in Alma, Michigan due to the weather back in February but I'm excited about going to both Shutocon 2014 in Lansing, Michigan in April and Jafax 19 in June in Allendale, Michigan.
I'm going to Shutocon tomorrow (April 5th) and like all of the cons that I go to I look forward to seeing all of the wonderful creations that cosplayers have come up with. I've decided to wear my Syaoran Cosplay outfit from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles to the con. I will be wearing my cape and taking my Mokona plushie with me. My brother is coming with me and he will be wearing his OB1 Kanobi Cosplay outfit from Star Wars episode 1. This time I will be checking out a Maid Cafe for the first time. I hope to get a few good photos from it. Also I look forward to seeing Anna and Elsa cosplayers from the movie "Frozen".
Shutocon 2013 was a ground breaking con for me due to the photoshoots that I joined in on and learned so much from. Here are some shout outs:
who cosplayed Mew Ichigo from the Tokyo Mew Mew series.
who cosplayed Sailor Venus.
who Cosplayed Sailor Mars.
This June I'm going to the beautiful Allendale Campus of the Grand Valley State College which is West of Grand Rapids, Michigan once again. This will be the 4th time that I have gone to Jafax and it's my favorite con to go to. Every year something special happens to me at it. Last year I found a Princess Sakura cosplayer from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, many Disney cosplayers, and I did my first personal photoshoot with Missy
who cosplayed Lyfa (Leefa) from the Sword Art Online series.
A couple of shout outs for this year:
who is a wonderful artist that I look forward to seeing each year. She does wonderful drawings, sketches, and so much more.
who will be in my first one on one group cosplay photoshoot. Her group will be cosplaying characters from the "Magi the magic Labyrinthine" series. It will be an honor working with her.
In general I still have more photos from Youmacon 2013 to post and showcase for you. Also I plan on doing more features on this page. The tribute to the movie "Frozen" was the first. My Facebook page has gone through a transformation. I showcase and give shout outs to cosplayers, photographers, and artists. Most of the shares that I do on my Facebook page are of photos and drawings that I have an interest in. Sailor Moon being one of my all time favorite series I showcase often.
