As of a few minutes ago, I am registered for my single planned public appearance for 2015. I will be, if all goes well, sitting at a table in the artist alley of Arch Anime, the Epic Anime Weekend in Collinsville, outside of St. Louis.
The fact that it’s so close to such a large metropolis is just a bonus. I picked it because it was reasonably close to me, AND… they didn’t judge and jury their table applicants. I paid for my table, and boom. I was in. As. It. Should. Be.
Also, they look to be a reasonably small convention considering it’s only just getting established. I’m sorry, world, if my dislike of crowds keeps me away from the larger conventions. Although I admit the judge and jury chases me away more than the crowds.
That being said, I’m really looking forward to it. Not following the powwow trail, as it were, makes my rare public appearance fun and special. Something to look forward to.
On Friday I shall of course be cosplaying as myself. As I do.
Not sure how I’ll approach Saturday, the day I like to do wear glitter or color in my hair or various things. It’s always a we shall see moment.
I hope to see you there. If you come, please say hello. I’ll have my charms on the table. Not sure if I’ll be doing portraits… it will depend on how my hand feels that day. I’ll have flyers for the Heavenly Bride. If I can swing it, I’ll have Book 1. If I can swing it.
Oh! If I hurry I can have Book 2 in the works in time…. (rushes to work)
