Here's a quick little journal entry about my October/November travel schedule! I'm pretty busy with commissions and finishing the rest of my 2015 costumes right now, and I actually just got brought on to make a suit of robot armor for a short film! Yay working on a movie! I'm pretty swamped with all that, and my son is cutting his two year molars, so he hasn't been a happy camper (T^T) Something fun that I just started doing is working with metal. I'm practicing sculpting and casting molds out of plaster and pouring molten aluminum to make little details and stuff for certain costumes. I'm honestly seeing if I have a talent for it (which I honestly don't think I do at this point). If I have a talent for it, I may try to start a metalworking apprenticeship under a master at some point. We'll see October 10th: Cosplay guest at Roanoke Valley ComiconOctober 17th: Cosplay guest at Fayetteville Comic ConOctober 30-Nov 1: staffer extrodinaire at Anime USA
November 7th: Cosplay guest at Scificon VA
So that's where you can find me this Fall, and Scificon will be my last convention of 2015. Since my con year is coming to an end, I'm starting to book my 2016 conventions! If you'd like to see me at an event near you, email your local con and tell them about me! I'm serious, unless a cosplayer is literally internet famous or already an established guest, it's a cosplayer's fans who get them at events. As someone who staffs a decent sized con, I know for a fact that conventions don't know about every single cosplayer in the country, and they really take requests into consideration. That's why conventions even bother to ask on social media who you want to see at the con the next year
This applies to all non industry guests, so if you have an artist you really like or an author, email the con about them. Trust me, all artists love appearances and really like getting to meet their fans in new locations!
