Sadly, I had to cancel my Anime Milwaukee trip this weekend. Just too many unexpected repair bills. At the time, canceling felt like the responsible thing to do and now I can go to my oldest son’s birthday party, which had been scheduled after I’d made my original plans. Despite all of that, I’m feeling rather depressed and I feel like this sacrifice is unrecognized and unappreciated. But I suppose that’s what makes it a sacrifice. The worst feeling though is that an important part of me is being stuffed back into the closet. I guess cosplay has become an important creative outlet for me, perhaps the biggest reason I go to cons at all. Oh well, my other me will just have to wait until C2E2 and ACen in April.
