I still like the wreath the most, but they all look good.

+Callie Cosplay was my table neighbor at #memphiscfc   #memphiscfc2014 . I don't #cosplay  often anymore, but I know how much work goes into it, and she even takes it a step further and takes / edits many of her photos. I heard her give advice to tons of #cosplayer s, but was not able to attend her panels. So if you're considering being a professional cosplayer, then check out the interview, and buy some of her prints.

Discussion  - 
 
This group is for Western comic artists who focus on creating comics for girls and young women in the vein of Japanese shoujo and josei manga. Shoujo comics are intended fo young girls and teenagers, josei comics are intended for late teenagers and young women. This group focuses primarily on connecting these artists. Artists are encouraged to promote their work and the work of other artists, promote conventions they'll be attending, and arrange meet ups. Members are also encouraged to promote this group to likeminded friends. Admin do not serve as gatekeepers, anyone who feels their work fits under the shoujo or josei umbrella is welcome to join and participate. This is intended to be a safe, welcoming space, any drama should be kept in private messages, and instigating posts will be deleted by admin. Repeated offenses will result in being kicked from the group.

Upon joining, artists are encouraged to make an introductory post for themselves and their work, and create an album in their name to post examples of their work. If you're posting a group work, please tag the other artists.

It's #SmallBusinessSaturday  in my online store, the Nattoshop, and not only have I recently updated with convention stock (and am STILL updating, I have a lot!), but I've put the first volume of my all ages watercolor comic, #7InchKara  on sale.  For $15, you'll get 120 full color pages (79 of which are watercolor comic), an original sketch, and a Year One laminated bookmark.  This is a perfect way to introduce someone you love to comics!   #kidscomics   #allagescomic   #watercolorart   #smallbizsat

My recap for the@GeekMediaExpo in Nashville, TN.  It was my first year attending #GMX, and my second convention in that particularly family of cons. 
The Geek Media Expo (or GMX) is a general geekery convention located in Franklin, TN, about 30 minutes outside of Nashville. It's in the same convention family as MTAC, and shares some of the same support staff. For the most part, this is great, as I like most of MTAC's support staff, ...

I'm a native to Louisiana, the New Orleans area, and found the food lacking. I had the gumbo as an appetizer, which was server in a mug for some strange reason. It was loaded with green onions which is not traditional and did not enhance the flavor. It was goopy and lumpy over all and grossly sour. The rice ratio was wrong as well, but the rice was cooked fine. For dinner I had the vegetarian ravioli, which was lacking in flavor and not worth the price. My significant other who was also a native to Louisiana had the Jambalaya which was the sticky variety (which was not soupy like some places strangely serve) rather than the dry. It was okay. The meat was cooked well though poorly seasoned. The rice was good and had a good flavor. Portion was good for the price.

Planet Fun is a fantastic shop, selling not only used videogames, nostalgic toys, and comics, but also the work of local artists. The owner of the shop is extremely knowledgable and both charges and pays a fair price for the wares he's buying or selling. Whenever I'm on Broughton Street, I try to make it a point to check out what's new at Planet Fun. If you're looking for a well curated manga selection, Planet Fun is a great choice. The used books are very affordable, and the selection is continually growing. I always find something to add to my collection.
