I read this manga a couple of years ago, so I'm glad I finally got to see someone cosplay from it! It was so nice chatting with you again, albeit briefly! Perhaps I will catch you at an Expo or something and we can have another natter. I always love your costumes, they're so well put together and beautiful, and you were both gorgeous and very funny in Cosplay Chess! <3 (Thank you again for filling in at the last minute!)

You're also a master of miming choking to death, I laughed so hard at your Catbug fight in the Cosplay Chess XD

Thanks everyone!
Monkey: thank you so much for getting me a place in the Cosplay Chess. Brilliant job organising and coordinating the event. It was one of the highlights of the con!
Amy: I didn't know I had such a talent for choking to death.. All credit to Catbug (Chibi) who wrote the skit
