Ultracon may have been a bust financially, but I unveiled a new cosplay and I met some wonderful new people.  I also snagged myself another judge’s award and officially put myself on the cosplay map as a guest. 

I was actually surprised by the number of people who recognized me.  It was a wonderful feeling.  I know it sounds silly, but it’s moments like that that make me feel like I am doing cosplay right. 

I have always suffered from social anxiety, so conventions are my way of breaking out of my shell.  I find it easier to talk to people when I am surrounded by a number of them who are just as socially awkward. 

All in all, it wasn’t a profitable weekend, and the convention was not nearly what I expected, but I would still call it a good one.

I met you at Supercon when I asked to take a photo with you and I can't tell you how happy I was when I found you on tumblr! I love your work! Your cosplays are so fantastic! I look forward to seeing everything you post here :) P.s. You're an awesome mom and it's so cool that your daughter was displaying with you at Supercon.

Oh thank you so much.  I try to mix up my cosplays & think outside of the comic book box.  Don’t get me wrong, I love some of the classic costumes, but I love a challenge..  i love meeting new people, especially at conventions.  I’ve met some of the friendliest & most interesting people at conventions.  I also love how much my daughter has fallen in love with cosplay.  She’s already working on her next costume.

I’m sorry it took a little while to get back to you, I was at Ultracon in Ft. Lauderdale & I did not have my computer with me.  I will probably be at Animate in November & Magic City comic con in January.
