So Tsao! Are you planning on going to Anime Boston this year? There's a good chance I'll get to go with the rest of my family, and it would be awesome if I could meet you in real life :D

Yay~! <3 There's no guarantee I'll be cosplaying, but if I am, you'll most likely see me as Rin (from Inuyasha) wandering around with my dad as Sesshomaru c:
I hope to see you there too!
