While I'm waiting for the photos I got taken at Fanime 2013 by Point.Click.Studios and Rave2theJPhotography (as not many hall shots of me have emerged due to wanting to keep me around for card game and other shenanigans), I shall reveal my Anime Expo 2013 cosplay plans which I have just confirmed minutes ago:
Day 1: Sendou Aichi (Cardfight!! Vanguard) because Bushiroad is going to make an appearance
Day 2: Claude Faustus (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler II) with as His Highness, Alois Trancy in a butler outfit
Day 3: Hatsune Miku - "Miracle Paint" (Hatsune Miku: Project Diva) because I really got nothing else I want to bring out to display at Anime Expo and I just like this outfit a lot (What is this Los Angeles heat you speak of?)
Day 4: Nagisa Kaworu (Neon Genesis Evangelion) with and as Ikari Shinjis
Well then, 2 new ones and 3 male characters this time around!
Japan Expo USA 2013 is still up in the air at the moment. Due to school and the like, my cosplay lineups for PMX 2013 and ALA 2014 will probably just be some repeat cosplays I've done in the past.
After talking to good old , it has been decided that she, one of my teammates from D.S.P. (The Cardfight!! Vanguard team I currently play for), and I have decided to tackle on a difficult cosplay project for Fanime 2014 ̶p̶a̶r̶t̶i̶a̶l̶l̶y̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶a̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶s̶h̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶n̶k̶s̶ ̶I̶ ̶p̶u̶t̶ ̶a̶ ̶l̶i̶t̶t̶l̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶ ̶m̶u̶c̶h̶ ̶e̶m̶p̶h̶a̶s̶i̶s̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶c̶o̶s̶p̶l̶a̶y̶ ̶m̶a̶k̶e̶u̶p̶:

Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel - [D.S.P.] Raj
Battlefield Storm, Sagramore -
Construction will begin some time after I return to Oakland after Anime Expo, and I will soon have a Facebook page for my cosplay (and maybe photography) work to document the progress.
Speaking of Cardfight!! Vanguard, Team League Regionals are coming up! The division of 3 I am in will be playing at Seth's Games and Comics in Ventura, CA this Saturday along with another one of our divisions. This is something I will try to win in particular because the two teams that place the highest will earn the invite to the World Championship Qualifier hosted at the RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA! Card games aboard an ocean liner! Let's do this!
This Saturday will be eventful not just because of that, but also THIS! Hopefully I will return from Ventura on time to make it for the cosplay contest, which I have signed up to be a part of.
Oh boy, I am so anxious! >_<
