I'm still excited about attending my first East Coast convention. Dragon*Con!
Also excited I got to do a monster hunter group shoot with Joseph Chi Lin during Animegacon. Him having the experience to pose someone newer to photoshoots such as myself really helped during the whole process.
Also, i decided to upload a portfolio of my Monster Hunter Work in Progress here [link] . Its a 30 page presentation that was designed to occupy around 7 minutes of time, and goes through the concept and crafting process of creating a representation of the Goushu Kirin Armor.
Its been a fairly quiet week so i've spend a little bit of it working on Light up Persona 4 Tarot cards. I'm thinking about making a few more that don't light up as props, just in case. But with 2 cards that do light up, and 2 hands, it seems like a good number. Especially since it costs me around $12 to create each card, and wiring them up is tedious.
For cosplays, since i'll have to pack lighter, it seems like I'll be able to bring Nightwing, General Iroh, and Persona 4. I think that is around all my luggage will really allow for.
