Hey everyone, been a long while since my last update. Just wanted to post that I’ll be at AOD on Jan 25 & 26 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco. I will be sharing a table with my buddies over at aurAspirality. Here's a map of where I'll be.

Well it's been a while since my last entry, just been busy with work and school as always. Anime Expo was pretty exciting, by my speculation there was even more in attendance this year. I got to set up my new equipment for the first time and it looked way more professional then my janky white cages =P. I was a little out of the way this time, closer to the corner but I did meet a lot of interesting people. Some of the people I had met at Fanime also paid me a visit at AX, always good to see old customers. Btw, for future reference feel free to chat it up with me, I think I'm a friendly guy haha. 

Anyways AX was a good venture both for financial and leisurely agendas.

As for Kintoki, little bit on the slow side but I had fun just kicking my feet up and relaxing for a change. It was a good break from the chaos that occurred at Fanime and the hectic-ness of Anime Expo. I know I should have talked to my table neighbors more but I'm still a little bit on the shy side when meeting new table artists. I'll say this much though, they were really nice people, they gave out food a lot o.O. Next time I'll be sure to bring something good to share. 

I also debuted my completed New Age Blue Spirit (I wanted to wear it to AX but sadly the chest armor was not completed yet) and signed up for a photo-shoot. I am very eager to see the photos, the staff over at "At a Whim Photography" were really professional. I'll post them up as soon as I get them.

Lastly, Future Conventions
I am confirmed for Japan Expo which takes place on August 23-25 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Table Placements haven't been confirmed but I will update this journal entry once I get it. I am going to try to create some new art pieces for this event but it's a 50/50 at the moment since my desktop pc hasn't comeback from the repair shop yet.
Currently, I am looking for more conventions since when it hits the second half of the year, conventions start to slow down. If you have a suggestion, feel free post it up on this Journal or send me a note. 

This is pretty late, the last few weeks have been pretty hectic since Fanime just cleaned my inventory out. Lots of new stuff, I got a new display & equipment all ready and I'll have 8 new creations to show off so be on the look out for my booth. My booth will be almost entirely revamped from what everyone saw at Fanime so don't be surprised if you don't recognize it at first. Unfortunately, Anime expo hasn't supplied the public with a definitive map for the exhibitor hall but it will be in the attendee booklet. I'll be at F9 and list as 777 Sprite Productions. 

Everything seen at Fanime 2013 is restocked
8 New items

As for cosplay, I've run into a few problems. The new weapons policy & the Airport TSA policies have unfortunately caught me by surprise and I will not be able to bring a number of my props. I'm going to bring my New Age Blue Spirit (minus the twin broadswords), my K' cosplay from King of Fighters, and perhaps my Knight of Zero Suzaku Kururugi or my One Piece Ace Portgas cosplay (these two are still undecided). Less variety this time around but at least more people will get a chance to see them. I really wanted to bring my FFX Auron cosplay since people seemed to like it a lot but the Sword and Jug just take up too much space in my luggage and I have to jump through quite a few loops in the rules to get them safely to the convention center.
