Work has been wearing me down lately (I'm working seven days a week now), so I decided to treat myself and book tickets to attend all three days of Stan Lee's Comikaze convention in Los Angeles this Halloween! I even splurged and commissioned a new cosplay from a gal pal of mine who is a master at costume-making. This year, I'm rocking a Sailor Jupiter costume for Halloween/con-season (I've been digging Sailor Moon Crystal lately)!

This will be my first time rocking a mask-free costume in public. So I'm a bit nervous. All my other public cosplays have covered up at least half my face because I tend to look goofy in photographs (and that makes me REALLY self-concious about strangers taking pics of me that are likely to end up on over the internet). So my Princess Kenny costume will be on standby, just in case.

Also, Sailor Jupiter is a bit "sexier" than the stuff I usually wear for cosplay. And that worries me a bit because of a recent incident at SDCC where my sister and some of our friends were chased down the street and reapeatedly called "sluts" by a creeper who couldn't take "NO" for an answer.

BTW, the creeper's name is Kevin Brueck and he has a shitty YouTube show where he harasses con-goers and pulls other stupid pranks (like chasing female cosplayers down the street while calling them "sluts"). If you're in the nerd and/or convention scene, PLEASE spread the word about this guy's douchebaggery. My friends and I are hoping to get him black-listed from future cons (and, on a purely personal note, I want to see this asshole pay for harassing my little sister while she was walking down the goddam street!!!!). If you want to hear this story first-hand from someone who was physically there to witness it, my friend Jimmy wrote about it on his Tumblr page here.

*sigh*
I want to end this on a happy note. So enjoy a picture of my most recent cosplay experience:
I am the most kawaii princessu! ~_^

This comic is based on stories I've heard from cosplay girls about ugly jerkwads hypocritically telling them they're not "hot enough" to dress up as a particular heroine.

I also took some inspiration from the Tony Harris incident.

In case you haven't heard, a Jem and the Holograms live-action movie is in the works. And the film makers are scouting FANS to work on things like casting and costuming. Naturally, one would assume that this will lead to either total AWESOMENESS, or a complete and utter trainwreck of a film (either way, it'll be entertaining LOL).

That said, the Jem movie will get all of my money and my love if they opt to cast these gals. Even if you're not a Jem fan, just check out their audition music video. It's AMAZING!!!!

I'm thinking this might become a series...

Because "F**k Tony Harris" will never stop being fun to say. If you don't know why, lookie here

Also, whoever can identify the obscure costume on the bottom-right gets a gold star!
Hint: She's a character from a 10+ year old JRPG.

One of my cosplay buddies just told me about an AWESOME event happening in Los Angeles on October 2ed. Will Ferrell and Dreamworks Studios are holding an event to promote their new superhero movie Megamind. They're trying to gather 1,500 superhero cosplayers in one place to beat the Guinness world record for Largest Gathering of Superheroes!

Here's the press release:

The idea of being in the Guinness Record Book is so exciting (even if I'll only be a little speck in a panoramic picture). I can't wait to suit up with my friends and drive down there. It'll be the geekiest block party EVER!! ^_^


This is what me and my pals look like. Look for us in the 2011 edition of the Guinness Book!!
