Wow. I had the opportunity to attend this year’s Katsucon in Maryland. It was quite an experience…one that I might wax philosophically on at a later date. But for now, I wanted to show off some of the amazing cosplayers I photographed. I was NOT prepped well to take pictures, to the point where I completely forgot to bring my flash (huge thanks to my friend Jimmy at Angry Dog Studios for lending me a spare!!!)

I also struggled with the wacky lighting there. Basically I’m trying to say “HI HAVE THE SUCK AT CAMERA.” But I hope you’ll still enjoy seeing the work on these cosplays.


Midori Mad Bro? Tamako Market Episode 5


So damn, I thought I had Midori figured out. She’s a lil’ gay for Tamako, but in general she’s “Captain Lonely Girl”. We all know that Mochi is “generic sloppy hair who loves the main character” guy, and nothing changed here. But damn, ol’ blonde chick got up in some business.

Mochi’s trying to just get 5 free seconds to talk to Tamako, and is already being cock-blocked (maybe it should be friend-zone blocked at this point, ‘cuz he’s faaaaaar from being much more than that right now) by the entire neighborhood and his family. Now Tamako’s friends, who have much more common sense than “could I be dimmer than Yui?” Tamako, are stepping in. In particular, Midori was pushing and a shoving Mochi back up in his Forever-Alone-Hole. WUZZUPWITDAT?

I mean, the damn bird had to step up and try to keep Mochi from being a complete failure at life. A TALKING OBESE DIABETIC BIRD WAS HIS ONLY FRIEND.

By the end, Midori was backing off and letting him “have a chance”. It’s here we know she sucks at knowing about love/relationships/Parker Brother’s games. The moment was lost, the build-up was too huge, and she screwed him over, whether she meant to (she did) or not.

The only Midori really did was provide stacks of fuel to yuri artists across the galaxy, who I’m sure have already started sketching treestands worth of MidoriXTamako boner jams that will possibly break Pixiv.

Working! (Wagnaria) Images

Just a couple of pics from a series that I FUCKING LOVED. If they could find a way to bring this back for another season, I would be a happy fan.

It really seemed to be hitting a great stride by the end of the second season. The perfect combination of comedy, romance, and (light) slice-of-life conversation. Each character was distinctly unique and, in my opinion, not annoying to watch.




…and a bonus Popura destroying the city Gojira-style…


Please come back ;_;
