Shout out to the person who talked me down from a panic attack at the Final Fantasy photoshoot Saturday! You helped me AND you found my badge! Also shout out to the two people who were protecting it where they found it. I thanked you all in person but it doesn't feel like enough.

Shout out to Kawaiiicosplay! The Gladnis feels were so real and thanks for hanging out with me and taking the picture :)

Shout out to staff! This felt like the smoothest year ever! Bonus shout out to security for being quick, friendly, and reasonable as well.

Aaand shout out to everyone involved in cosplay games! You all work so hard and it makes me so happy to watch your events. I love you all and hope to join you again next year!

Shout-out to the panelists for “Upping Your Cosplay Game Game” for understanding my question despite me wording it poorly enough that it sounded like it was general. There are a number of you that inspire me to try to enter the games, and your advice for drama is truly going to be taken to heart.

Also, shout-out to everyone who complimented me in my Kiki cosplay. I’m genderfluid and have issues at home that prevent me from being myself all the time, so your kind words meant a ton.

Shout out to everyone I played Vs. at Anime Pass the Yen.

I was Autumn. It was very well played and I had a good time. I wish I had more energy for the game but to be honest, my voice was strained and letting out those few yells I did kind of killed. I felt like and still feel like I have hot bubble in the back of my throat and even swallowing hurts, so I tried to keep myself reserved.... which is not even me. I was a lady deadpool one year. I know how to be wild. It just wasn't a good year for me, lol.

But special call out to the girl I said "bye bye" to before I eliminated her. I felt instant guilt after saying that because I felt like an bunghole. That's not really who I am and I apologize. I am happy you came up and to be honest, that question was probably going to get me too if we continued with it. I know nothing about sports.

I don't recall seeing you off the top of my head, but shout-out to you for doing that! Especially where I saw you said you were self-conscious about it. That's totally brave and I'm personally proud of you for having the courage to do that, what with your issues at home and all. :3

If you do it again next year, I would absolutely love to get a photo of you if you're okay with it. :)

A shout-out to those who commented or reacted to my Nobu and JAlter plushies. Given I tried to stick to and recreate the Fate/GUDAGUDA art style that Nobu was based on...JAlter was a bit more tricky...as best I could, combined with the jitters that comes with showing them off for the first time, the reactions to them made me smile.

Shout out to:
Viga for her idol panels. They were fun and informative. I am now deeper in idol heck because of you. No regretts.

The History of Love Live panel and the dignified shouting of who is best girl from SIP and Sunshine. Disagreeing with people has never been so much fun. LoL.

The numerous Bob Ross cosplayers. I don't know why he was popular this year but I don't care. Numerous variations and all were great!

The Broadway AMV audience for being theatre fans and singing long to the showtunes.

The girl I talked to at the Discotek booth Sunday and convinced me to buy Kiss Him, Not Me. Started it last night and my wife and I were laughing our butts off.

Finally to all you fellow anime, manga, idol, J-pop, J-rock etc fans. You truly are a fun bunch and never stop liking it becuse other people think you're odd. You are in good company and being a nerd is the best thing in world. Cheers everyone!

shout outs to:

- the three korosenseis we were able to find/meet! (especially the one in cosplay chess-- it was awesome to meet you as eraserhead in deathmatch and find out you were going to be korosensei later) two of you patted both my and my karma's heads and it was so in character, i got really happy.

- the my hero academia group we fought against in death match! the choreography we did was really fun, and rewatching it now, we looked super cool. very blessed you played along with the chip bit before the cheering started.

- the cosplay games staff!! you were all very organized and made the games run smoothly. extra shout-out to the one who refilled my water bottle during death match while they were scrambling around giving other people water!!!! gotta keep everyone hydrated after their hard-fought battles.

Shout-out to the Spike Spiegel cosplayer I saw at the Kamishibai panel on the Sunday of the con. You had recognized me afterwards when we were both at Back Bay Station. I had a fun time talking with you, and it was really nice meeting you. Hope you got home safely. See you, Space Cowboy!! :D :D
