brendala: (magical me)
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.

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! ~_^
