In between shots of my poses, but here’s some stage shots of my Hokuto Musou version of Shin! This is the first time I’ve seen it from stage and from the back. Two months of crying, bleeding, and blisters. I won Best Craftsmanship in the master’s division at San Japan 7. Photography by Cruz Control Photography!

More Haman selfies than you can shake a stick at!!

So ramba ral’s moustache failed on us part way through the day, so we have a tempotarily clean shaven Mr Ral

San japan: One more day to go!

San japan snapshots, friday

I’m so glad I’m at San japan this weekend. Things have gone pretty sideways this weekend but you know what? I’m surrounded by people who love me.
Last night we had a blast together.
Some how we used out magical staff powers to be the first ones in the rrave and for a minute it was just magical and laughter and wondrous! One of the coolest things thats happened at a con ever. For like five minutes it was just us dancing. Luke, joe, jay, tequila guy, kat, zappa and that hella sexy BigBoss we picked up for a while. Oh and hedge we ran into him last night too!
Amazing.

Time to get my Queen of Space on though, because today the real work begins!
Expect Haman selfies. Lots of them.

These are pretty much the only halfway decent cosplay pictures I got out of the whole convention.
the firstone there is my roomie, Zappa, dressed up as, well, Zappa. LOL
And me as Ibuki in the second with Tyshi, I don’t know who the Chun-li was, and Mugen. The Ibuki costume I’m wearing was actually made by Zappa, I just borrowed it for the weekend!

Ramba Ral Progress for San Japan.
Only thing left to do is his wig+sideburns +mustache combo, and hand work on the closures on the neck and cape.

Worn by my lovely partner Darien Spider!

I’d buy it if it was in black.
