Japan Expo 2002 Pictures Delayed until January..

Hey everyone,

A lot of people have asked me when I plan to post the pictures I took from Japan Expo, but unfortunately due to circumstances I have put off posting the pictures until January. Reasons being that besides the horrendous drive back from L.A. to SF Sunday night, rental car problems, and other problems regarding the weekend, the main reason was because during JE my grandfather passed away, but it was a calm mood throughout my family.. So the week after JE, I had relatives over visiting to pay their respects, as well as staying a few nights here, so that limited my online-time.

I had a lot of fun AT Japan Expo, and the pictures came out really well. They will go up here on cosplay.com but probably not until after Ohayocon (Jan. 10-12) so when I send admin the pictures from that convention, I'll include the pics from JE also. I appreciate everyone's patience, and if you want me to email you a picture of your costume that I took, feel free to PM me, saying who you are, and which costume(s) you wore at JE. Thanks, and see you next con!!

Sorry to hear about grandfather, Eurobeat King. I'm glad that it seems like you and your family are dealing with it okay.

It was nice meeting you at JE! Thanks for always taking such cool pics! Can't wait to see them in January then!

Hey Al,

I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather.. My grandfather also passed away on Wednesday after JE. I had alot of relatives from socal coming up to visit and for the funeral. I saw alot of people that i never met before. we had the funeral on saturday.. it was pretty hard on the family. He was 99 yrs old.. Im glad i got to see him a couple of hours before he passed away Wednesday morning. Its been hard for me cuz its right before finals too.. and yes i do agree the drive from socal is really long. we stayed in bakersfield for about 2 hrs at Boomers playing games. It will be tough for me to go down to socal this weekend, but im going to visit my uncle and for the Anime Jungle event.. hope to hear from u soon..

:/ *huggles* Poor Al-niichan. ;_; I'm sorry to hear that your grandfather died. Aoshi, I'm also sorry to hear that your grandfather passed on, as well.
Geez but it sounds like it was a bad couple of weeks for grandfathers -.-;; It's always hard losing a loved one. I grieved deeply when my grandfather passed on, but even having gone through it myself, I -still- can't think of any words to offer that would be of any help, except that at least he isn't suffering anymore. ...But then I don't know that either of your grandfathers were suffering to begin with. Hopefully they weren't. Ah, I'm shutting up now ._.;; I wish you and your families the best in these trying times.

*hugs* Tom told me the situation. Sorry to hear about that. Your family has my thoughts and condolences. I understand there's more important things in life than pictures, and knowing me, I'm patient to wait. (still owe me that AniMagic video! ^^) I really don't know what else to say. I don't remember when my grandfather died. I just remember being naive and thinking he'll wake up in a few months. After Japan Expo, I had to visit my grandma since her time is almost up. She's had a few heart attacks, and I just wanted to see her as much as I could. Again, my warmest thoughts to your family...*hugs*

On the brighter side, I'm looking forward seeing your pics!
