Hey peeps! For anyone that's been wondering where I have been I have moved blogs over to a new site!  You can check out my new site youraveragenerd.com for all the things that I do. Blog, reviews, tutorials, cosplay photoshoots and my podcast Super Awesome Go TIme!

Check it out! :3

fairytail is licensed!

i saw yesterday that Funimation has gotten the license for the awesome fun time that is Fairtail  I highly suggest picking up the manga if you like One Piece and things that involve magic. I'm really hoping this means more fans for Fairtail since this has been a series under the radar for a while now. I trust Funimation to put the quality they usually do into their titles.

Even better it looks like they are going to be doing some super awesome Fairytail related events at New York Anime Fest. It's one of the few things I will be looking forward to if infact I end up going.

Check out the full info on their blog here.

Epic Anime Times

I found this video a few days ago and really. I should have shared it sooner but I'm not quite in the habit of immeditately posting and sharing the crap I find. I'm trying though!

I think the editing on this is great as is the willingness to get the crap kicked out of himself. All of this footage was taken at Anime North 2011. I am only super sad i did not get to see any of it. D:




Otakon maybe?

Just a little update... I originally wasn't planning on going to any more conventions until the end of Sept for Anime Weekend Atlanta. BUT it looks like I might actually be going to Otakon. I have a friend who's got a spare spot at an artist table and well.. it's kinda a great idea for me to go do that.

For anyone who does know I make handmade sketch books, plushies, keychains, bags (and soon tiny hats!) that I would be bringing with me. I'm interested to see if they would do well and if people want them.

I don't know if I'd plan on cosplaying much if I'm behind an artist table. If I do it would be something easy to wear. Probably Ritsu..

Anime Next 2011 masquerade

I plan to make a better Anime Next con report type deal but I recently found a video that has the Masquerade skit I was in with some friends. It was my first skit and overall I'm glad I did it because it was worth doing once, that's for sure.

It was a xxxHolic sketch and i was Moro. It was pretty fun and we were awarded Best overall craftsmanship.


Time to Pack ect...
Koneko, Pounce

Well it's time to leave for the con and I think i have all my stuff together that I need to have... I just have to pack is all into as small a space as possible because LET ME TELL YOU dragging large anything though a subway is a pain in the ass. Heck, just riding the subway can be a pain in the ass.

The good news is I finished the touch ups on my Dead Master Horns and I finally got around to styling the back of my Ritsu (from K-On) wig.  I also managed to make a cute thank you present to a friend of mine for letting me crash with her at the con.

I did not have time to make any more awesome props for Sebastian's outfit so it's Dead Master and Ritsu for me at Anime Next. It will probably be better since Seb can get super hot due to his layers. He's one hell of a butler wearing that shit 24/7.

And once again for anyone interested I'll be co-hosting 2 panels on Friday. One is called Rapid Fire Figure Drawing from 12-1 and then it's Writing Awesome Fan Fiction from 1-3. The Fan Fic panel will be recorded for our podcast Super Awesome Go TIme.

Here is a full panel schedule for Friday provided by

For the first time ever I will be in a masquerade skit thing :o I have no idea what i'm doing I just know it's from xxxHolic. My friend asked me, I said sure and that's pretty much that!


Getting ready for AnimeNext
Koneko, Pounce
koneko_who
I know i still have a ton of updating to do from Anime North but it looks like it's going to have to be put on hold until next week or so. Why? Cause I've got to get ready for Anime Next! I'm glad I had a little bit of down time between the two but I still feel like I've only just unpacked D: The good news is that the costumes I will be taking with me to Anime Next will be easy to deal with- especially good since I will have to travel through NYC subways and NJ transit to get there. I guess this can be a practice run for when I plan to go to Anime Weekend Atlanta and that involves getting everything onto a PLANE. @_@  I have no clue what I am going to do about that right now. especially since I want to bring Dead Master with her completed scythe by then....

Oh well! On to the present and that involves: lunch! Yep. Need to eat that. Also. doing a bit of cosplay maintenance on my Ritsu Listen!! outfit and creating a super awesome pink bonnet for Sebastian because it needs to be done. That or find a candelabra. He is way to fun with props. And I have to decide if I want to bring a 3rd costume or not. Either way somethings still got to get done,

AND

I have to make sure to remember my recording stuff for the panels LinkWorshiper and I will be running at the con. Epic drawing panel and epic fanfic panel WHUT!?

If anyone is going to ANext be sure to drop by and say HI!

They are not pokeboys... they are POKEMEN!!!!

Sebastian Michaelis Cosplay

I've also managed to get some of the photos they are all from a photo booth which was really the only way we were going to get photos of the both of us ( since it was just us at the con most of the time. I've never done one of those things before and it was interested as well as being an over all good experience. Got about 20 photos total though I haven't put them all up anywhere. After the cut are some select ones posted to my DA account.

Dead Master pics are coming...
Koneko, Pounce
koneko_who
I've started to upload some pics for the Dead Master costume i did based on some fan art. I have also made her regular outfit but I didn't get any good photos of it AND i don't have her scythe yet. When i get some I'll be certain to get some epic pictures. I have my fingers crossed that I'll have it in a couple of weeks for Anime Next in NJ but i'm not getting my hopes up to high. I have a pretty good makeshift prop in the mean time. Anyway...here is a reference photo of the art and plenty of pictures behind the cut. I found this image on Tumblr account that pretty much just posted random art. I would love to know who the artist is...



Back from Anime North
Koneko, Pounce
koneko_who
So I just got back from Anime North this morning at like 1. I slept like the dead until i went and saw the Hangover 2 in the afternoonish time. Overall it was a pretty fun con and I got to meet some great people and take some cool photos and get photos of some pretty cool costumes. I'll be posting said photos as soon as I can go through them. Not to mention I'll be in the process of compiling tutorial type things. But its back to work tomorrow morning. Time flies!

Crazy busy times for cosplay, podcasts and Aya Hirano
Koneko, Pounce
koneko_who
It's been a little while since I was able to post anything, not to worry i've been steadily trying to finish the Dead Master Costume I want to wear to Anime North (in TWO WEEKS). I've starting to stress a little bit about it simply because I have enough work to keep me busy on that costume all the way until I leave T_T

I did however manage to get out and sneak to Forbidden Planet to meet Aya Hirano, a very adorable voice actress for characters like Haruhi Suzumiya and Misa Amane. Not to mention a slew of other fantastic roles. I have some pictures and a little bit of video I need to process that will surely show up here and on my nerdy youtube channel.

Subscribe if you haven't and you'll get to see Aya and a couple of the tutorials i've been working on while making my props for Dead Master. I'm hoping to record a new episode of Super Awesome Go Time with link_worshiper  this week. We're both getting pretty busy but really want to make the podcast continue on.

That's all for now folks!
