Just a brief update on my convention plans.
I am going to be at Queen City Kamikaze Feb 19th with ~mimsy-girl. I will be holding a raffle to win a custom plush head and a raffle to win a full body color character commission. This is a one day con in Manchester, NH. Come by my table and say, "In the name of the Moon, give me a drawing!" and I will give you a free character pencil sketch!
I am confirmed at Anime Boston, April 22-24 with ~mimsy-girl and ~belovedseasons. They are still working on the Alley set up but as soon as I know where I am officially I will let you know! There are three plushies slots open for booking at AB and I will be doing a raffle for a full plushie of any character the winner chooses!
Animazement (May) and AnimeNEXT (June) are TBD for me in 2011.
I can't believe it, but my pageviews are closing in on 200,000! The first person to NOTE ME with a SCREEN CAP of the 200,000 page view will win a special prize! What is it? I have no idea! We will see what I come up with!
BEST OF OTAKU SENSHI
~James-S-Flynn and I have started a new group to be a compliment to #Best-of-Sailor-Moon and feature the very best of fan senshi art on DA! Please watch the group if you love fan senshi!
How many of you remember the "Sailor Wars" contest I used to hold on Sakura's Senshi Circle (now SailorAstera.com)? I got this bug in my brain to restart the Sailor Wars contest and now with the Groups platform DA offers it would be exceptionally easier than it was 10 years ago when I was coding each profile by hand. But to make it happen, I need the group to be a Super Group so we can have polls and thumbnails! (Damn you DA! ) I've started a donation pool on my front page! If we can raise enough points for a Super Group I will open it and run it! If we don't reach the points and the campaign fizzles out, then I will donate the points to #crystal-starseeds which is also looking to become a super group.
A little more about Sailor Wars:
The way the contest works is that all the participants submit pictures and profiles of their fan characters. I will set up brackets of competition and senshi will be posted in one on one battles for a two week period. During the battle, people will vote on which character they think wins via a poll. They also have the opportunity to leave critique on the character's design and profile to help the creator improve. The senshi who win in their battles will advance to the next battle and continue to do so until there is one champion! I sure had a lot of fun running it back in the day and now that it would be so much easier I have a feeling we could really get going on it. So pitch in your extra points today!
