So now convention season is in the dark for now and the next convention I'm looking to attend is still in the dark since they've yet to announce location of Anime Vegas 2013. Reason so, from what I've heard is that the parties the con staff is trying to reach out to has yet to accept the agreement and terms on their contract to have the convention where they want to have it at. My guess is that they're trying to get at a hotel to have the convention at and no answers yet. As much as it upsets me, but even the staff are just as upset. If nothing pops up soon, they might have to postpone the convention until possibly veteran's day weekend. I just hope it isn't Alexis Park, man I fucking wish that place doesn't exist. It was a bad move to have the con there b/c of small space and hard to take pictures without interrupting traffic.
That's the end of the con drama that's going on, other than that, I've started to commence on the Leon Kennedy project. I'm referring to the outfits that Kennedy wore in RE6, the Tall Oaks and China version. I already have a good amount of clothing to start, just slightly more gear that helps give that appearance of Leon stand out as if I'm really the character. Also, Leon is the first character cosplay I'm working on that requires me to have a wig, since I can't have that kind of hair b/c my job where I work at doesn't allow me to have that much hair, so I'd have to rely on a wig that looks the part and I wouldn't look good wearing. Other than that, everything else is easy to get from there, such as tactical gear (A big thanks to Evike.com and AirsoftGI.com for their support)
I also have a surprise announcement that I've been holding back on and kept within my FB account and my cosplay page that I run. I'm also working on a new cosplay along with the Leon project that I'm working on at the moment. The new cosplay will be an operative of a fictional special forces group not affiliated with Resident Evil, but to Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six franchise. For those who played Rainbow Six, you'd know those games for their realism and difficulty of the missions that you'd get killed easily if you're not thinking tactical. This franchise has been in the dark lately since the COD franchise dominates the FPS industry or the gaming market in general. I feel that Rainbow Six needs a wake-up call and bring it back alive by cosplaying as a counter-terrorist operative of Rainbow, even though not many people these days would recognize it unless they paid attention to the patches I just ordered to get my Rainbow operative started. If you guys don't know what Rainbow Six is, then go look them up on youtube and watch some of the gameplay footage of some of their games. Even though this is a no-brainer, but I'm sure another cosplayer or attendee will think my Rainbow Six cosplay has that affiliation with RE, although I'd have to correct them about it if they asked, bonus points if they know what game franchise my operative is from. I already have the patches with the logo of the United Nations with "RAINBOW" written over the logo.
