It is 2010, Anime Expo just passed, and I’m a wreck. Post Con Depression was hitting me hard and all I could do was lay on my couch while listening to copious amounts of The Pillows to get me through my day. The only thing I wanted was to return to Anime Expo but a reality was slowly sinking…
Cosplay: Manaka & Chisaki (Nagi no Asukara)
Cosplayer: Meg & Lauren

Do we do it for the fame? The money? The attention? Because we don’t like who we are and need to be someone else? Yes, maybe, no…? All of those things and none of them.
Cosplay is a hobby just like anything else is a hobby. It is something you do to pass the time that you draw enjoyment…
Curious about what we are doing at Anime Expo 2014? Alongside cosplaying, performing at Masquerade, and sharing God’s amazing love, we are putting on an Instagram project called Otaku Project at our booth!
What is Otaku Project?
Otaku Project is a 4-Day long interactive community happening…
Really needed these words of encouragement today. I am reminded that as long as I make God’s plan the focus it doesn’t matter if everyone else thinks it’s crazy or impossible or stupid because it’s about pleasing God, not other people.
Anytime you set out to do something great in life, there will be critics. If you’re going to be a great businessperson, coach, student, leader or employee, there will be opposition. The more success you have, the more opportunities there will be for distractions. The higher you go, the more haters will come out. When you start stretching to a new level and pursuing what God has placed in your heart, the jealous people, the critical people, and the small-minded people come out of the woodwork and start making negative comments, but you don’t have to let that distract you.
If you are under pressure today, if the critical voices are coming against you, know that it’s because you are making a difference. Don’t let them throw you off course. Instead, dig your heels in, set your face like a flint, and say, “I will not get distracted. I will not get drawn into battles that don’t matter. It doesn’t matter what others think; it matters what God thinks!”
Today, look beyond the critics. Stand strong in adversity. Press forward to what lies ahead and win the prize of life that He has prepared for you!
