Smile Many Hellos from Missouri

Hey everyone! My name is Taj. I was really interested in cosplay three years ago and now I've come back to give it another shot.

I live in the Midwest so I go to cons like Animestl, Kawa Kon, and Natsu con. There are more, but I can't afford to attend them all. v__v

A little about myself: I'm really big into character design. I am currently pursuing a Japanese language major/ ESL and I'm thinking about pursing some kind of art too. Gahhh college is confusing haha. I also want to dabble in computer programming. I have no sewing skills whatsoever sadly.

I want to cosplay Pink X from Teen Titans Go and Saya from Blood +. These are my goals before Animestl in April. Think I can do it? @___@

It's nice to meet you all!
-Taj

Welcome to cosplay.com! How's Japanese been in college? I'm thinking about taking some classes once I get to college o:
And yes, you can make it in time. Believe in me who believes in you xD

So far it's been easy, but it was Japanese for beginners. Sadly,I won't have another class until next year It's definitely worth it though! I like my professor. He shows us a lot of newspapers and magazines from Japan. Are you thinking about majoring in Japanese too?

Thank you! D,: I'm so nervous. I want everything to look nice haha. I'm kind of a perfectionist.

I second the Naka Kon suggestion! It's going to be a great time and there should be a pretty big turnout! So exciting to hear of more Missouri cosplayers!

Aww, I see. Glad to hear you had a good professor ^-^ I probably won't major in it, but maybe a minor would be nice (:

Don't worry too much about it, I'm sure it'll turn out great (:

I've been hearing about Naka Kon quite a bit since I attended Kawa kon. The only difficult thing is my parents are still a little over protective v__v Maybe I'll be able to attend next year when I move into my dorms.

I'm excited to hear from cosplayers in Missouri! I usually only meet them at cons haha.

Aw yeah, Naka Kon is a bit far from St. Louis. But keep it in mind for the future! It's a great time. How was Kawa Kon??? Have any plans to attend Anime STL?

I will! Maybe I can gather up some friends and have a mini road trip. Kawa kon wasn't bad. I didn't like the hotel choice. The Hyatt is expensive, but it's a nice hotel. It was a fun con and the panels were interesting. I will definitely be at Anime STL. How about you?
