The Immortal Witch by KakeranoTsuki The Immortal Witch by KakeranoTsuki
First shot I've received from my photoshoot with Ray Lum Photography! I love this shot, it's the CC feel I was going for~

This is my favorite CC outfit of all time, the illustration from Clamp in Cardland. I tried a lot of new techniques with this dress, and while I'm not entirely happy with the result it was definitely a learning experience. =) I can't wait to make my next poofy dress! LOL

Ahhhh!~ You are so beautiful!!! *__* I love this photo so much!
I feel so bad that I couldn't praise you more at Con-G after the masq, I had to leave right away to rest! :'( I wish I could have taken the time to admire this master piece of yours.
When in the next poofy dress?! hehehehe! 8D

Thank you!!! :heart: I also wanted to let you know that I loved your dress, but yeah, I understand that you weren't feeling well. ;__; Are you all better now?

Haha I don't know when the next poof is; I have to find a poof I like again! XD

Ohh!! yays! well I'll be def looking out for your next poofy dress, I love them dresses!~ :D

As for me feeling better, it's yes and no. Better because I am at home and not on my feet all the time unlike at the con. But when I start walking around, the pain triggers everywhere. It's really weird, and not even my doctor knows what's wrong hahaha.. x''D I'm not too sure how much more I can handle conventions for that reason... :( But I'm not gonna have that stop me yet.

Yeah, we tried to cram in as much CG symbolism as we could! We were originally planning to borrow a Lelouch helmet too for extra feels, but that didn't work out, sadly. =(

I'm surprised that you haven't been on front page a lot more, especially for this picture. Your costumes are just superb and the photography for them is astonishing. I would love to be able to put you on front page just by myself because this is just delightful and I really want people to see your work.

Well when I get back from Japan this summer I will have to look up some ideas for cosplay and ask your advice to get it looking wonderful. Though I wouldn't know what kind of cosplay I would like to do. XP The pains of being a guy and wanting to cosplay XDDD

I did no less than 17 photoshoots that weekend, I was away from the main areas of the con most of the time, so I missed a LOT of people. I saw *vickybunnyangel countless times. :giggle: I also attended the WCS Eastern regional qualifier and the Katsucon Masquerade... with a front-row seat! :D What's awesome is that 4 Canadians won awards at the Katsu Masq: 2 x Best Craftsmanship in Hall Costume Contest awards for ~YunaDaKilla & Tormantor as Esther Blanchett & Tres Iques, Best Craftsmanship in Master Division award for ~Armurita as Caterina Sforza, and Best Overall Craftsmanship for *maryalupin as March Hare. Unfortunately, no Best in Show was awarded because all the best entries were so good that the judges couldn't choose one that surpassed all others. Sitting at the front with me were a bunch of Canadians mostly from Quebec - I knew them, they knew me. ;)

This said, I have 2 rumors to tell you, based on what I've been told directly or overheard saying:

1. Masquerade officials from Canada were present at the front row seats behind the WCS judges, presumably to observe and experience the running of things from U.S. WCS officials running their own regional qualifiers, with the goal of presenting a Canadian bid to Japan for hosting qualifier events on Canadian soil, eventually resulting in Canada entering the WCS with our own cosplay double-team and competing with other countries already in the WCS. I was told this by WildRoses of ~MoonRosesTeam, who also said she was "being trained by Laura Butler, the Director of the U.S. WCS staff, to be the Canadian Director of our own WCS staff." She didn't say when she'll submit a Canadian bid to Japan, nor when we'll expect to host WCS qualifier events, nor which cons will host these WCS events, but I presume we could see the formation of a "Team Canada" in 2014, at the earliest.
2. There was a "Katsucon 19 - Best in Show" plaque award among the plaques in the awards box. When the last Masquerade winner was announced, I was close enough to the stage to actually see 1 plaque remaining in the box as that last award was taken out and handed over to the winner. According to a few (Master) contestants who stayed after the show, the Best in Show plaque was awarded backstage to the Bumblebee cosplayer. There was no doubt about the excellence of the construction of that guy's mecha costume, and the crowd absolutely loved the skit/dance he performed on stage; but the judges gave out awards to whatever they liked, and despite the audience loving Bumblebee, the judges did not (for some personal reasons perhaps), and so didn't gave him any prizes. It was my Master friend who was in the Masq, *nybigblue44, who told me the Best in Show plaque story, as he and another Master contestant saw it handed over by Masquerade staff to the Bumblebee cosplayer backstage, thereby emptying the box of Masquerade awards.

These 2 stories are only rumors at the moment, so please consider them as such. What's known is: Masquerade officials from Canada were sitting behind the WCS judges taking notes, and no Best in Show was awarded (publicly) on stage at the end of the Katsucon Masquerade. Having Canada entering the WCS in 2014 with WildRoses as the Canadian WCS staff Director and the Katsucon 19 Best in Show awarded to the Bumblebee entry are the rumors.
