To everyone else that I may have forgotten, I <3 you all, and thank you for making Youmacon great! I've met so many people through the cons I've attended and it is always fantastic seeing you again!

CloakedSchemer: T'was great to see you again too. Hope to see you again. Oo, though my alias is spelled Raiji...:P

Nikolai: It was kinda fun to actually see you out in the open so to speak for once... and as part of the Shougi, that was fun.

The-Real-Link: Was nice to catch a few moments here and there with ya. You seemed to defiantly be busy though...XD

InkyLink: I managed to only happen to see in passing, but it's always nice to see your cosplay's. There always good to see.

My Roomies: You where all fun and I had great time. I do so look forward to us getting that Skit Idea we threw together on Friday going and work on it well. I have the Cliff Notes we took and will type it up and send it over to Hathor for her flush into a script format for us to start getting to work on. We also gotta work on rewriting that one song too, and recording the new lyrics if you will to...though we have a year to work on it and I do hope that we can make it epic...XD

Soulcrash: You always have some way of making things interesting and funny. Oddly though, what was the thing on the hair...Oo...Was a 'interesting' sight to say for sure...though god forbid I would swear that like I knew you where coming just by looking for that head of hair...I would see it and be "Yep, there be Soulcrash....and his wild yellow hair...XD"

Deathcom.net: I enjoyed stopping by your booth and getting some shots of my Cissnei and my Child Nel Tu. I look forward to probably hitting you again at any other cons I go to, and get pics of any other costumes I end up wearing so I can put them in my current in progress project. To make a binder with all the stuff in it, so I can start having a small record of them all.

To the Youma Staff and Volunteers: You did your best to make sure things went well as best you could, and I would say defiantly looked ragged by the end there. I do hope many of you got that chance to go home and get some much needed sleep, or a least a little bit.

To the handful that made it to the inaugural "Shin-Ra Reunion Gathering": I thank you and am happy you put up with the insanity. I plan to do it again next year, along with the slightly failed "UltimateTurk/Turk Everything" one. Of course, I plan to try and start planning it sooner and such so we can get the gathering listed in the book next year and also maybe plan more. Of course, we shall always have the epically funny "Revolving Door Reno" (sorry you have been officially dubbed that I guess...XD) to keep us laughing for a while. I do hope you are ok there, though. That did look like it hurt a little, but it was quite funny, even when you stumbled out and pretended to act like Reno was drunk, including the flask you had. That was fun. One of the few folks I've seen have a bit of fun with there character...XD

To Everyone else: I enjoyed the time I spent with all the people I met and do hope to see you all again n the future.

Shannon, Torrie, Becca, and rest of Karrissa's crew: love you guys, and Shannon: Pierce the Hevens!

Nikolai: Always have a blast staying in your rooms. I always meet interesting people that way.

TJ/Haji: Thanks for being my Haji. You were totally loved by everyone, even if you were wearing my coat.

RadicalPhantom: Finally nice to meet you~! Considering we've been friends on lj for a while now.

Everyone that came to the YGO panel: My god, I think Wayne will always remember that panel thanks to you folks. Give yourself props. And of course, I hope he didn't go home with a broken nose. XD;

Fellow Dai-Gurren Dan cosplayers: Thank you all for making Rossiu's last weekend so wonderful. Leeron, you by far are the most amazing Leeron I've ever seen. Also, thank you guys for the awesome panel. I couldn't have done it without you. I can't wait to get my hands on the sexy, sexy coredrill.

Tales people: You were amazing. Love you all. I can't wait until next year's gatherings. I'm hoping for a bit more variety other then Abyss and Symphonia. ^^;

And to everyone else, thanks for making Youma Con amazing. Props to you all. If I forgot anyone, I'm sorry. Bio chem tends to fry my brain. I should of done this earlier today.

Already posted on the Youma forums, but here's a (slightly updated) list:


Animosity-tachi: It's always great fun to see all of you and hang out in the green room. Kristen, thanks for organizing the Gundam W gathering, and for imbuing it with all your characteristic enthusiasm! And Amanda, thanks for the Cadbury chocolate... <3

Zach and Jim: Thank you for making our hat famous. (Or is that infamous...?) I'm still laughing about the painting... See you at Ohayocon!

Chris (Sailor Man): Nice to see you back in this part of the country again! I still love your stringfalls. :)

Chris (Hughes): It was nice to talk to you again, and the 'shopped photos were a great addition to the costume. I hope you get time to work on your new projects this year...

Elemental: You absolutely rock. Thanks for the two photoshoots; I can't wait to see the results!

The Sunday wig panel girls: Thank you for letting me join in the hijacking of the panel...

The Friday hall cosplay judges who saw our "trashy" Devil May Cry costumes: Thank you SO MUCH for getting the joke! It was fun to share the creative recycling process with you. :D

CloakedSchemer and Joker: I never got to talk to you at the con, but I saw your Harley and Joker from a distance, and commented to my sister how perfectly in character you both were. (It wasn't until post-con that I realized it was you, and commenced kicking myself for not saying hello...)


Thanks to everyone who fangirled/fanboyed over the Gundam W costumes, and to everyone who recognized our Kuroshitsuji cosplay! I was amazed at how many people knew the characters, considering how little-known it is on these shores.


I'm sure I'm forgetting a dozen other people, but most of you probably know who you are, anyway... ^_^

To my roomies (Joker Ben, Two face Lee, Snow White Ashley, and my boyfriend Michael aka Phoenix): Thanks for an awesome weekend! It would never be the same without you!

Shei: It was nice to see you again! Your Major was so cool!

Deuce VII: I loved your Dante! Thanks for clashing swords with me!

CloakedSchemer: I loved your Harley and I have to give you a shout out from my friends Ben (Nurse Joker) and Lee (Two-face). It was their second con and I know they had a lot of fun with your Batman group (They don't have an account here yet).

To anyone who took my picture or commented on my costumes: Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!
I am sorry to anyone I forgot! If I think of any later, I will post them! I said hi to so many people over the weekend! Hopefully I'll see some of you again at Ohayocon.

A big shout to everyone who was at Youma. I've seen more impressive cosplays in this group alone then I have at Otakon put together.

I always feel that the crowd makes the con, the staff can only go so far.

Props to everyone to making my first Youmacon completely ridiculous and fun. :bigtu:

Becky, Sakura and Andy (I keep forgetting to hunt for them here) For yet more awesome times rooming. Nothing like spending the day getting knocked into by a Noctowl's wings :P

Alright, Now that I recovered from a whole week of 102 fever. I can now start making my shoutouts to those I've saw at Youmacon.

KoriStarfire - Great seeing you again. And nicely done on the rework of the Konan wings. They're much better than the last time I saw it.

Miyuka - I know I spoke to you for like 60 seconds, but awesome seeing you. I'm sorry I missed your awesome cosplay. I really wanted to see it, but I totally forgot where you were showing it. >.< But I saw the pictures and I was blown away from your work. You deserve the award at the masquerade. I applaud you for that.

Ononoke - You're a crazy girl. =P

CloakedSchemer - I win at life? O.o I never had anyone say that too me before. Thank you very much!!! You win for saying that I win! XD You also did a great job on your Quinn. Hope to see what your next set of costumes are.

Soul Eater Cosplayers - It looks like all of you had alot of fun at the photoshoot and I wish I can join in. Now I must finish mine!!!

Naruto Cosplayers - Thank you for being a good group for a photoshoot this large. I hope you all had alot of fun.

SoulCrash - You're still doing it wrong.

Forcebewitya & InkyLink - I saw you guys for like 2 seconds. Great seeing ya! XD

Kallen Kōzuki Friday Evening - You had one of the most amazing Kallen cosplays I've ever seen!!! I'm happy that you won for best hallway weekend at Youmacon. It was a little weird when someone took a picture of us because I wasn't really even a character from the series, but I'm honored to take a picture with you!!!

I might forgotten some people, but I'll get to you as soon as I remember a whole chunk of them.

Chris/chibik3r0: i talked to you for a total of 10 minutes at this con, but i'm glad i got to see you.

I don't know how we didn't see each other than much at all except late Friday night really. Hopefully at ACEN (or Ohayo if I somehow make it) we'll spend more time together :D

Nakahito67/Pein - The most amazing Lelouch I have ever hung out with. It was awesome hanging out with you, I can't wait to do it again!

Megumihime- You ROCK. As Usual you're just awesome. I can't wait to see your Kallen cosplay done.

Soy Sauce Despite being a random Ashford Academy student you were still much fun! XD I hope there's more people in '09 too. (BTW I'm the Suzaku that was with Pein..... I think I was the only Suzaku there ^^;;;; )

Cloakedschemer - What can I say? Amazing as usual. I loved your Harley Quinn. You were Awesome.

The Kingdom Hearts Cosplayers- OMFG Did you guys make the Photoshoot fun or what?! Love to every last one of you.

Sora/Reno/Duo (I don't know your Screen Name T-T ) - This is to the Sora I met Saturday Morning before the Photoshoot. (the one hanging out with Axel and Xigbar(and pestered Ann-Chovi at her AA Table) You were AMAZING! So in character! You ROCK.

Uhuhu that was me. I was also Quatre and America (from Axis Powers Hetalia) during the course of the weekend because Youmacon was my Cosplay Overkill convention. I WAS KIND OF a bit of a hyper brat at Youma so I'm glad people interpreted that as "in character" as opposed to wanting to punch me in the face. THANKS for the compliments. They mean oodles.

Wow, thought I'd never get to this. XD;


InkyLink > It was so wonderful to see you again! So funny that Friday and Saturday we were cosplaying polar opposites. XD I really enjoyed the three and a half weeks we got to spend together, even though we were broke. XD I can't wait to see you again at Ohayocon, if not sooner! Luff~ ♥ ♥ ♥

Forcebewitya > I'm really glad you liked the Link wig I did for you! ^ ^ Can't wait for you and Lexi to be done with your costumes for Ohayo! Secret cosplays FTW! XDD

Hiyoko-Chan > I've told you this millions of times, but I love your Dark Zelda so, so much! ♥ Also, thank you soooo much for the Japanese goodies! The Marimo charm is my favorite. ;w; So pretty~~ Hopefully I'll have some gifts for you next time we meet! ^w^ Also, congrats for being on the front cover of the Youmacon Calendar! That really is such a pretty picture of your Yuna! ^ ^

Brandon > Not sure if you'll ever see this, but even though I didn't see you much, it was nice to meet you! You seemed like a really nice guy! ^ ^ Hope to see you cosplaying at more cons!

Jaquil > So sad that I didn't get to see much of you! Also sad that the last time I saw you, I was only partially awake. =( I hear that you might not be able to make it to Ohayo or ACEN, which makes me really sad! Hope to see you again soon, regardless! ♥

LexiStrife > Hanging out with you these past few weeks was a blast! But I'm so sorry you got sick! ;A; Glad you're feeling better now, though. ^ ^ Good luck on your secret costume! It's going to turn out awesome! ^w^/" Also looking forward to your and Luna's Asuka and Rei! ^ ^

LunaLadyofLight > So happy to see you again! Your Azumarill costume was so adorable! ^ ^ So blue and shiny! Congrats on Honorable Mention! ^ ^ Your Fembot made me lol hard everytime you shimmied! XDDD Definitely a cosplay that isn't done much. ^ ^ Can't wait to see your beautiful smile again at Ohayocon! ^w^/" Also, PINK GIRL!! XD

MissShanksALot > I'm sad I didn't get to hang out with you longer! ;A; It was way fun hanging out with you the little I did, though! Also, way sad I missed your Fado! You know how much I love that costume. ;A; Saturday night was tragic! But I'm glad you've mostly recovered. ;A; I really hope you can make it to Ohayo! I'd be so sad if I had to wait all the way until ACEN to hang out with you again. ;A; I'll try to be on IM more often so we can chat more! ^w^/"

CountessLenore > So sad I didn't see you much either! Especially sad that I missed your Akane! At least I got to see your shoes, though, which were killer! XD Too bad I was too broke to be in your Mahou Tsukaitai group! I'm sure it would've been way fun. ^ ^ (Although it would've required me to get up early on Saturday, so I'm afraid I wouldn't have been at the shoot anyway! XD;;; )

SeekingElegance > Completely missed you somehow. XD; But I did see the pic you uploaded of your Sae, and I really like how it turned out! I'm especially impressed with how the wig turned out! Too bad I wasn't able to tell you in person. ^ ^; Kudos on the wands! Perhaps I'll be able to meet you at a future con. ^ ^

Rikku-Chan & Gipps > Arielle, your Midna was amazing!! I was really surprised at how well the costume suits you! ;A;/" Major props on all that fabric and body painting. Most adorable Midna ever!! It all turned out so well, and I can't wait to see it again at Ohayo! You'd better be going! Mike, it's amazing the things you do with that little camera! Very impressive photography, sir! P.S., you made me lol hard during Apples to Apples. XDDD Much fun was had! Hope to see you at Ohayo, too!

NickiChick > Although you didn't attend, I wish you had! I still have your calendar, btw. ^ ^;;; I'm going to try getting it mailed to you tomorrow! Chrono Cross at ACEN, IT WILL HAPPEN! XD

Devoninne > Not sure if you'll ever see this either, but it was very nice to meet you! It was fun staying up late with you Saturday night/Sunday morning, and thanks for buying me and D McDonald's when we were broke and starving! XD Also, thank you for the fan! It is so pretty! ^w^

Nytengale > It was great to finally meet you!! You're so funny and adorable! Congrats for your award! Definitely well deserved! ^ ^ Also glad I could see you at your place of work. I was really trying hard to surprise you. XD Anyway, can't wait to see you again, and we'll hang out lots when I move up to Madison for University! ^w^/"

Hillary & Brian > It was great to meet both of you, too! Really glad you two decided to come despite the accident on Saturday night. Hope to see you two again at Ohayo or ACEN!

John > Your Resident Evil cosplay was awesome! Very intimidating, very appropriate for Halloween. ^ ^ You're a super cool guy, and I'd better see more of you in the future! XD

KoriStarfire > It's me! The craft foam girl! XD I'm so glad I could see you again! I'm also glad you cosplayed one of my favorite characters!! Duo's the man! XD Congrats for getting into the Youmacon calendar! ^ ^ You certainly deserve it! Hope to meet up with you again! Maybe at Ohayo? Definitely Acen, though, right? XD

Julia > Tremendous honor to have met you! I just thought it was pretty funny and strangely appropriate that I was mostly asleep when we met (I...don't even remember what I said to you. XD;; ), then we met again the next day while I was cosplaying as AoL Princess Zelda (also known as Sleeping Zelda. Get it? LAWL! XD;; ) Anyway, wanted to say again that I absolutely loved that original Samurai design you wore on Saturday. I hope you weren't offended that I was staring at it almost the whole time we were chatting. XD;; Anyway, best wishes, and hopefully we'll meet again!

Pan-Chan > Loved, LOVED your steampunk design! It was absolutely beautiful! If I didn't know any better, I would've assumed you were cosplaying a character from some game series. Again, great job! You make me want to try my hand at steampunk. ^ ^ Also, loved your Link! The costume was so clean, and I was really impressed with the proportions of your sword and shield! You are an amazing cosplayer, and I hope to meet with you again, which I will, right? XD

Con Family > I love you all soooooo much!! I'm so sad that everyone couldn't attend Youma, and I really wish we could have a con family Christmas. ;A;/" It does get awfully lonely living here in Utah, far, far away from all of you! I've said it a thousand times already, but I can't wait to see those who will attend Ohayocon! Hopefully time will fly again like it did before Youmacon. ^ ^ Talk to you all soon!

9.9; I feel so silly for only knowing you as craft foam girl for so long. u.u; LoL it just how things work ne? Anyway congrats to you too for getting into the calendar! When I was flipping through the calendar for the first time i was like "i know everyone in here!" it was neat. XD lol Ohayocon seems to work for me this year (which i'm really happy about) so i'll see you there! (ACen not so much... T.T )

I don't know you guys much, but I'd like to give a shoutout to InkyLink for being so nice to the little Aryll who was so intimidated by his contact lenses. xD I'd only ever seen the costume in photos before, and my computer screen does not do him justice.

It's far past the con now but I'll just sum up and say thank you to everyone that I got to hang out with or take photos of for the entire weekend!

To con attendees, thank you for letting me stop you for photos!

To anyone I gave photoshoots to, thanks for being so flexible and patient as always.

To our Zelda Group, you guys feel like family lol. It's always such a blast to see you all at every con and thanks for letting me take some shots of everyone (moreso than normal this time lol)...

I'd write more but really, words don't do it justice and if I started singling individual people out, I'd be writing a book. But all you guys, whether we spoke for but a moment, missed crossing paths, or got a chance to hang out for awhile, know that it's appreciated.
