This post will be edited when I know dates and times for stuff.

I'll be working at the Funamation booth again this con, we'll be promoting the new Neon Genesis Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone movie, so stop by and say "Hello"! I'll be there as Hikari.

I'll also be at the signing of Toshimichi Mori and maybe Daisuke Ishiwatari(not 100% sure on this guy. <3) for their new game BlazBlue at the Aksys booth as Taokaka.

Yo! I figured I should start using this seeing I got a lot of people who fav'd me lately. (Thank you! I appreciate each and every one of you! <3)

First off I'd like to give a little mini introduction.

My name is Lauren, but I go by DW because Lauren is far to common. My screen name comes from my two cats, Pijo and Genjo, whom I love dearly. My icon is my OC DW that :iconporifra: drew for me a few years ago.

I enjoy watching TV, my favorite show is Andrew Zimmerman's Bizarre Foods, and I love watching bad reality dating shows on VH1. XD

I am a nerd. I am currently playing through Persona 4, Pokemon Rangers 2, Puzzle Quest, and Princess Debut. I am reading Fairy Tail, Naruto and Bleach, Deka Wanko, Deadman Wonderland, and Soul Eater. I don't watch much anime but I am currently enamored in Natsume Yuujinchou.

Now for Sakura Con:

I drivng up Thursday afternoon with :iconlisu-c: and friends and I am staying with the wonderful :iconjimi-xx: . My cosplay plans revolve around ACP/FUNamation booth times ,:iconsakusakus: , and :iconlisu-c:

Friday: 12 - 3 working the booth then Lolizune/Boobiezune from Soul Eater with :iconsakusakus: then maybe Duskull from Pokemon with :iconlisu-c: and his brother. Then maybe Masqu Ball? :DDD

Saturday: Nia from Gurren Lagann with :icondynamitebreakdown: and :iconsakusakus: then 2 - 6 booth times. After that will be Meiko with :iconlisu-c: 's Kaito and hopefully meet up with awesome peeps.

Sunday: 10 - 12:30 booth times then go home.

Have any questions? XD

So, I don't make most of my costumes.

I don't photograph most of my costumes, I may set up shots, but I dont actually take the photo.

Would it be fair to post costumes if I don't make, shoot, but only model them?

DA is for creativity and art and passion. Would modeling count as this?

Ramble ramble ramble . Had my first part of my English final today and I am poooped.

First journal and possibly the last journal I will right on DA. I will probably delete this some time soon.
