Archives for posts with tag: Convention going

      School has started, but we can still say that we’ve recently gotten to have some convention fun! Our summer convention, Cos & Effect 2012, which took place during the last week of August was a lot of fun! Anya made a fan video to document the fun that we had, so if you’d like to see what some of the RCS members (Anya, Chelsea and Lio) have been up to, go check it out!

 

       Also, we send our best wishes to RCS member Erin, who is currently serving in the US Navy. We love you Erin!

            We’re back! We’ve had an unexpected hiatus over the last little bit, but now we’re back full force with cosplay updates and a brand new episode of the podcast!

            With Tsukino-Con 2012 over, we’ve all been left with quite a few new cosplays! For more, be sure to visit our deviantART accounts!

            As for the podcast, Erin (Erin-Aru) spent a few days around New Year’s with us, and during that time recorded an episode of the podcast with Chelsea and I! Despite it going through post production to come out past New Year’s, we’re still calling it our New Year’s show.

            This new episode of the podcast is centered around the topic of Cosplay For Beginners. We tackle everything from choosing your character based on your experience, to how you can go about putting your cosplays together. This episode’s featured cosplayer is our local superstar, Twinfools! During Storytime, we’ll be sharing our embarrassing tales back from our beginner days. Plus, a bonus derp reel at the end (this episode was recorded late on New Year’s Eve, so there’ll be plenty of half-awake laughs to go around)! You won’t want to miss it!
