SO KATSUCON WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED & MORE?!?!
My very first time attending & my expectations were through the roof. I had been wanting to attend this convention ever since I discovered it in 2012! But Maryland is a very long way from Missouri & with no friends able to make the trek with me, this was my very first solo convention. Which was terrifying!
But amazingly, everything worked out! I flew in on Thursday afternoon and roomed with some wonderful East Coast cosplayers. All of my cosplays made it in one piece, nothing was forgotten or lost, & there was no bad weather to delay my trip! I spent all of Thursday night just meeting people & wandering around the convention center. (WHICH WAS EVEN PRETTIER THAN I IMAGINED!!)
On Friday I cosplayed Jinora in her wingsuit from Season 4 of Korra. The response I got was incredible & I'm still trying to deal with everyone's kind words! I absolutely can't wait to get my photoshoot pictures back & post them here. Until then, here's a great video about cosplay that I was lucky enough to be a part of! -->
(i'm at the very end!)
Then, on Saturday, I had both a Kuvira & another Pearl shoot, before I changed back into Jinora for the rest of the con. I met so many talented cosplayers and made a bunch of new friends! I can't wait to go back next year. Katsucon is a convention I can't recommend enough.
