OK. It's May 1st and it's too risky to wait any longer. I am officially NOT ATTENDING ANIME NORTH this year. Unfortunately, my immigration status has hit a few bumps in the road. My paperwork has been backed up by an additional three weeks because of an error and the process is taking way longer than we initially anticipated. It's completely out of my control, which makes the situation even more heartbreaking for me. There's absolutely nothing I can do to speed up the process.
To those concerned about the One Piece photoshoot, don't worry - it's still happening! My first-mate Yukinosama will be organizing the photoshoot in my stead and I trust her completely. She's been a constant source of positive energy through all of this and I love her to bits~ <3
I'm so sorry that this happened though. I can't thank you guys enough for your support and understanding. I'm going to miss you all so much! Please know that my visit to Canada has only been POSTPONED - I will be visiting for the month of July and plan to attend ConBravo, as well as any cosplay-related events happening around that time. If there's no cosplay picnic scheduled, I'll organize one myself, haha!
Love you guys~ <3
