Going to St. Petersburg Tonight!
Moscow is super awesome!! The sun only goes away here for 4 hours! The last two days we spent adjusting to the jet lag, as well as attending the russian convention. I really found myself super impressed with their masquerade, not because it went for 8 hours “_” but because every single skit was top notch and more like a very rehearsed performance rather than a typical masquerade skit. I think if the skits were like normal ones I’m used to then I’d be spooning out my eyes and eating them by the end of the 8 hours.
Today we’re hanging out with some of LoveSquad and they’ll be taking us around to things like the Red Square and other historic monuments.
Tonight we are traveling by private train sleeper car to St. Petersburg where we’ll be photoshooting with a really gorgeous model in one of Lillyxandra’s fairy costumes for Kyle and her fairy project. I’m so excited to see the costume up close and see it on the model. Although I am a little nervous since our friend Leetah told us to keep silent and not speak from the moment we leave the subway to themoment we get inside the train station so as not to identify ourselves as Americans. Apparently there are people who are drunk and hang around the train station who will kill us if we give ourselves away. I don’t really know what to make of that, but its scary. This will be like a secret agent disguise mission but IRL :(
Why can’t we all just love each other ;_;
Sorry for not checking up. But been busy.
Hope you have fun in Russia. Sounds exciting. Had I taken the mission to Kosovo I might have gotten a chance to visit my self. Oh well live and learn.
Have fun and take care.

actually I wanted to wait for your entry about the german Cosplay.Com Meet n Greet before I write my comment, but I can’t tell when you’ll be doing it and how soon I could comment on it, since I’ve got a load of work to do right now - and because you’ve asked me to leave some writing on your website (may it have only been out of a really cute politeness or out of real interest), I didn’t want to let you wait all too long. So I’m writing this comment below your St. Petersburg report. Bad me!
I just wanted to tell you, that I had a really nice day in Dusseldorf. It was great meeting you, Ginny and JoEllen personally. I remember commenting on an entry of yours about a mexican convention, where I said, that we’ll probably never meet and you wrote back, that I shouldn’t discard that thought - and now it finally worked out. Yay!
I wouldn’t go as far as saying “it has been a dream come true”. That would be too fan-boyish and I’m too old for that (and too german, maybe) - but, as I’ve also written Ginny, meeting you and the others was a nostalgic time-warp, back into the times when I was fully involved in the Manga-, Anime- and Cosplay business - and those were some good times indeed. For a few moments I even felt a wee bit nerdy, which can be relieving sometimes, since everything else in life is so serious. Thank you for that.
I would have loved to hang out with you guys for some more time. We had just started to get our conversation in gear when you all had to leave for your hotelrooms, probably to get some food, some sleep and/or some still water that didn’t taste like year-old beer. I bet that whole journey through three different countries must have been - as you put it - stresstastic. Thanks for not not being in an all too bad mood, too. I know how hard it is to keep your spirits high when your hungry, thirsty, tired and everybody around wants your attention.
I would really like to stay loosely in contact if possible - but I can understand if you don’t and wouldn’t mind. Really. We germans are normally a very sympathetic folk. One way or the other I will give your webspace a pageview every now and then, always interested in what you might be up to at the time being.
So, very nice greetings from Germany. I hope we’ll have the chance to meet again some day. I really liked our little chat. Wish you all the best for your career as a movie costume designer and an improvement of your health status.
Think, I’ll conclude my little comment here for now. I may find the time to write some more, when you’ve got your blog entry up and running - if you’re interested, that is.
Ups - almost forgot again (again, because I had the same problem with my email to Ginny): in case you were wondering, I was the tall guy (about 6.2) with glasses. German teacher with the auto-immune-disease. We were talking quite a lot about all kinds of themes. You meant my Englisch pronounciation reminded you of your friend Timo (but then I don’t know how often you say that to people, so that might not be a unique reference). If you can’t remember - don’t worry. I won’t be mad. I know it was only one of many meetings during the last week of yours. One shouldn’t get too over-enthusiastic
So long…Posted by sanjiyan on 06/23 at 07:42 AM
I have to say that I saw a picture of one of your new costumes, Eva Heinemann… God, is such a great comic, that’s a piece of art, I’m really glad that you made a costume from this comic.
Hope to see more updates soon. Keep working hard!!
