Oh my goodness, it was ridiculously fun. After everything, I told the staff that my only complaint was that I couldn't be everywhere at once and didn't get to talk to everyone I saw. But the cosplay judging was tons of fun, and I literally cried when they were coming up on stage (especially the kid cosplayers; I was so excited because they all did so very well!). The panels were super chill and I got to ask tons of questions and nobody seemed to mind when I got all up in their business with my nosiness. I actually wound up doing the curls on one of the other cosplay guests at the wig and makeup panel. Let me tell you, it's scary to stand there with a super hot curling iron in front of people with this super trusting cosplayer just letting me learn how to put curls in.
I have a whole list of new buttons I need to work on in the next couple of weeks before San Japan (and then a convention practically every other weekend until the end of September!), and cosplays to keep in mind. Koko really wants to cosplay from Akagami no Skirayukihime, and there's a chance that I might try to make Zen in time for SLCC. I'm also officially part of a group here known as Mystic Guild Cosplay, and our first group project will be Tokyo Mew Mew (I get to cosplay Lettuce)~
Hopefully soon, I'll have time to compile button art and post updates of the characters and series that I've drawn since the last time I put them up. I have officially passed 700 different designs now, and I will be setting a goal of 1k before 2016 starts. Won't have that many ready to go to cons this year, but I'll use what time I have to work on them. I'm currently delaying working on any additional Tales of buttons, because I'd like to have those debut at Aselia Con 2016. (And I'm just rambling now...)
But Koya-Con was so much fun! San Japan is the next one I'll be at~
