Are we still relevant? Probably not, but hey, I'd figure some people would like an update!

Team USA 2009 are well underway to completing their costumes for Nagoya and they look spectacular. Check them out wcs_teamusa09.

What about in the life of Sonnya and Renee? Lets start with Renee!

From November 7th to the 9th, Renee traveled to Denmark to help choose the representatives for the World Cosplay Summit!

Hard at work!

She came home, supported the new WCS team heavily, went to many events such as KRAZY!

Here she is with Team USA 2009.

And then the worst possible thing happened, Renee moved to Korea for a year to teach English.

Okay I say its the worst thing ever because not only I, but many of her friends back home miss her terribly, but she's been hanging out with Lee-san (Hi Lee-San!) and Big Kong and Little Kong (Hi Kongs!) and having a great time and having a spectacular experience. To read more about Renee's exploits in the land of kimchi, please check out her blog!

And that's been the update on Renee's front!

On my front, I've been a recluse by going to school. Yup! School! Its been kicking my butt, but it feels so good to be back in school. Because of this, costume making has taken a backseat, so I don't really have much to update. I've done a couple of costumes here and there.

I will be going to Guadalajara, Mexico on May 22nd - 24th for Tour ConComics with my boyfriend, Chris/4ng31! If you're in the vicinity, please feel free to stop by and say hello!

My schedule for ConComics!



Also, I'm a cosplay guest of honor at ColossalCon 2009 from June 4th -7th. Same deal, stop by and say hi!

My Schedule for Colossal:

Subculture of Cosplay- @ 5pm Friday
Friday Cosplay Judging - @ 7-9pm Friday
Swimsuit Cosplay Judging- @ 9:30-10:15pm Friday

Advanced Cosplay - @ 10am Saturday

What Not To Cosplay - @ 10pm Saturday

So I guess that's it? Yea, that seems to be it. Take care everyone! ♥

New article out. Only a handful of you can probably read it since its in Japanese, and we all know how well I can ready Japanese (Read: Not at all.) Kasama-san was a really cool person to interview us and it was pretty neat.

Our buddies from the 09' Australian Team sent me this .pdf of the article that we and many of the other teams were interviewed for by Marie Claire.



Apparently, I'm Giorno. Good times. You can read our little blurb there and France's blurb also.

Oh man, this journal has been pretty quiet lately, hasn't it. OH WELL, time for links!

Here's our skit, this time with full audio. I'm sure everyone's seen it by now, but I might as well include the link for completionist's sake:




And here are two videos I'm SUPER excited to post. During the parade, Team Osaka taught us osaka slang for 'super hot', because the weather was retardo -

You are tiny. I still want to kidnap you and claim you as my little sister.

105 degrees Farenheit... and I'm guessing somewhere between 95-100% humidity. Now.. imagine sitting out in that for 2 hours in spandex that didn't breathe.

Note to future team: Bring a serious misting fan.

After we were done on stage, Rens and I literally ran to the ice water bucket and doused ourselves in water.. and it was the best feeling in the world.

Hey everyone, Renee here! A lot of people already found the skit video online, even if the sound hasn't been added yet, but here's a link: http://www.tv-aichi.co.jp/wcs/e/index.html


I wanna say congrats to Brazil, China, and Osaka, but everyone really did a FANTASTIC job. Uwaaaa, this was such a fun experience. Note to next year's team though - Oasis 21, where the event was held, is outdoors, please prepare yourself.


Also, I seriously need to kidnap Team China and make them be my sisters, they are the hottest nerds I have ever met, and the nicest people on earth.

Team Osaka? Not only our BFFs, but totally coming to NYAF!!! Oh god everyone, they are the coolest chicks ever, let's all hang out together.

Sonnya and I have picked up so many mannerisms while we've been here, feel free to laugh at me at Otakon when I go 'EEEEEEEEEH?!?" And our 'EXTREME SPRING BREAK' move? Totally means 'ja nai' here - we've confused quite a few people with that.

We've picked up a lot of advice for next year's team, and we are here for you guys 200%. The number one thing though, is to do something that you love, and have fun doing it, and the rest will be a breeze :3

This has been one of the coolest experiences of my life, and I've had so much fun. Sonnya, you are my sister from another mother and my partner in crime, it's been an absolute joy being fabulous with you ♥

We didn't win.

BUT THAT'S OKAY! We went there are reconnaissance for future TEAM USA and we gathered up a lot of info for our teams that will GUARENTEE A WIN!

Brazil won first place for their Burst Angel skit. It was all sorts of awesome with mechas, and girls in panties and it shot out smoke and bullets came out. Too awesome.

Second Place went to our friends, China, who did such a spectacular show with fans and...soooo romantic looking!

And Third went to our BFFs, Team Japan (Osaka), who did.. no joke the sexiest yaoi skit...ever. And that's a lot coming from someone like me who actually hates all things yaoi. I was SWOONING! We invited them to come to NYAF, so their tickets are booked and Rens and I will be showing them around NYC. They are soooooo GORGEOUS!

Everyone did really well, and we are really proud to have performed on stage. We got such a cool crowd reaction for doing JOJO, so that's good enough for us. We got to mingle with some cool Japanese cosplayers after the show! Good times all around.

Now, I'm sure people have the question in their mind.. IS THIS NoISE RIGGED?

And I can say that they are NOT rigged. At all. People who deserved to win, did. Regardless of press or anything. So please..PLEASE try out for WCS, we've had such a spectacular experience that we'll carry with us for the rest of our lives.

And Renee and I are going to start saving now to go to Comiket next year! Japan is AMAZING!

Oh and again..it was balls hot outside. Poor Renee in her costume.. gg.
