I wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season no matter which Holiday you celebrate. Due to circumstances beyond my control I have been away for most of this year. I will be trying harder to be on Deviant Art every now and then.
I do have some photos that I took at Youmacon 2015 in Downtown Detroit on my birthday, Halloween, October 31st, to share with you. In the photos their is a mini photoshoot that I did of a lovely young lady who was cosplaying Queen Serenity from the Sailor Moon series. I thank "Kyari" for taking time out of her special day. Kyari was married earlier on that day and then both she and her husband dressed up as Queen Serenity and Tuxedo Mask. The wedding ceremony was a simple non Cosplay one. They decided to spend their Honeymoon at Youmacon 2015 which I think is really cool. I'm in some of the photos dressed up in my Syaoran Cosplay outfit from the "Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle" Anime series.
I also do have photos from past conventions to share as well. Please be patient a little longer. A lot of my time during this past year was spent helping to run an Anime, Manga, Cosplay, Convention, and Otaku Guild. This Guild which is called "Anime Conventions: The Global Connection" Guild is on a website called Gaia Online. The link for the website is www.gaiaonline.com. I believe that you need to be a member of the website to view it. If you are on Gaia Online already you can check out my profile page at www.gaiaonline.com/profiles/sm…
It's been one of my great joys to help run the Guild mentioned above. I'm a Vice Captain of the Guild and I have a hand picked Crew that have specialties that range from Cosplay Outfit making to knowledge of old and new Anime / Manga series. The Guild has several hundred members and we act as a guide, info source, and the place to get help for any of your needs. If you are able to check out and even join Gaia Online at first glance it may seem "cutesy" but their are a lot of Guilds and Members of the website who are on this website and many others like Facebook. If you do join look me up after creating your Profile page. One of the first things that you get to do is dress up an Avatar using virtual items that you can earn or buy.
I have put my heart and soul into this special Guild and have greatly expanded my knowledge of the Cosplay Culture and what it is to be an Otaku. I have showcased many of my Cosplay Photography photos on various threads in this Forum based Guild. Being on the Gaia Online Website has been a growth period for me. For the last few years I focused on my Cosplay Photography. Now I have reached out to Otaku fans from all over the World and I feel that I have added something to the Cosplay Culture community. It's an honor to help run our Guilds little corner of a much larger World Wide Cosplay Culture community.
Stay tuned and I'm thankful for any of my fans that have been patient with me.
