I AM THE IDEA FACTORY WHERE LEGENDS ARE BORN. I COME UP WITH THE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS, AND BUY COMMISSIONS ACCORDINGLY. REQUESTS ARE TREATED LIKE SUGGESTIONS, AND ARE NOT CONSIDERED PRIORITY. IF I LIKE THE IDEA, I'LL GET TO IT WHEN I GET TO IT.

:icondontask4pts1::icondontask4pts2::icondontask4pts3::icondontask4pts4::icondontask4pts5::icondontask4pts6::icondontask4pts7:

ALL POINT REQUESTS WILL BE IGNORED. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE REPORTED AND BLOCKED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. I DONATE POINTS WHENEVER AND TO WHOMEVER I SEE FIT. IF YOU HAVE TO ASK, THE ANSWER IS "NO."

***HERE COMES THE HERO...

TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM DESTRUCTION...

THIS IS R-LEGEND!***

Now that that's out of the way, a little intro. I'm a highly creative individual who can be inspired by almost anything at anytime. Cosplay is my extravagent hobby. Love cosplaying and love taking cosplay photos. I'm always looking for the perfect shot. It's the way I appreciate and remember everything that I've liked over the years. I have over 50 cosplays that I've worn and still come up with even more ideas to wear in the future. I travel to pretty much any convention or gathering I feel like going to in the U. S. You never know when or where I'll show up next.

I'm also into sports, video games, TV shows and action movies too.

Oh yeah, AND I'M AWESOME!

Those are the basics. Want more? OK.

Some of you know me from anime, gaming and comic conventions. Some of you know me from cosplay gatherings. Some of you know me as that guy from California who is "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason." Others as "that mysterious cosplayer on YouTube that shows up in every convention video or CMV." And some of you just Watch me at random. But really, who is this guy? Well I'll tell you...

Why yes, I am "Going Hardcore On The Cons And Cosplays This Summer Without Hesitation Or Reason."

I'm the Valor Form you eat lunch with.

I'm the Wisdom Form you take trickshots with.

I'm the Master Form you walk around Chicago with.

I'm the Final Form you do epic battle with.

No, I'm Me, And You're Toast!

I have 7 Days.

I'm the Star Blitzball Player for the Zanarkand Abes.

I'm working for "Strife Delivery Service."

I'm the Vocaloid from the Steel City, waving that Terrible Towel!

I'm a Viking or a Bengal, depending on who you ask. Dattebayo.

I'm Sora's best friend, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm Ven's dark side, only in Tripp clothes.

I'm the Gamer with the Keyblade, riding your Disneyland rides.

Mine is the drill that points to the heavens!

I'm an avenger whose here to revive my clan.

I'm the 6th Hokage of your Leaf Village.

I'm the Sage beating down your Akatsuki.

I'm the Sage of your Prom Gathering.

I'm the Hero of Time that saves your kingdom.

I'm the Yellow Turbaned peasant leading your rebellion.

I'm the WWE Champion and the leader of Legacy.

YOU CAN'T SEE ME.

I'm going to find The One.

I'm not afraid of the darkness.

I'm Tiger Woods. I don't lose the game.

Where on Earth am I now?

Well Sora, it looks like my summer vacation's over.

I'm the Perfect Soldier, the Wing to your Gundam.

I'm #17.

I'm the Agent hunting down...Mr. Anderson.

I'm still the hyperactive ninja you know and love, only a little older and a little wiser.

Blue Is The Colour,
Cosplay Is The Game.
We're All Together,
And Winning Is My Aim.
So Cheer Me On Through The Sun And Rain,
'Cos J. RYOGA Is My Name.

Yeah, I'm that guy. Any questions?

THANK YOU WATCHERS for my BEST MONTH EVER!

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 1, 2014, 9:00 PM
Greetings once again to all my friends, fans, watchers, frequent favoriters, llama senders, comment droppers, fellow cosplayers, struggling artists, non-struggling artists, people that I favorite at random, and people who favorite my stuff at random. Here's what's going on in my world:

THE FEED...

----------------------------------------

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to all my DA Watchers for making August 2014 my BEST MONTH EVER!!!

Completely blew away my monthly page view, comment and favorite records! You are THE BEST! You Are The "Great 12,000" (11,800+ and random passersby too!) Summer may be ending, but the beat goes on! Your support is greatly appreciated and keeps me motivated to bring you even better photos and works than before! Let's keep it going! 

----------------------------------------

REASSIGNING ART COMMISSIONS

:iconsomy87maggio: and :iconninja-8004:, a couple of artists I've commissioned, have apparently DISAPPEARED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. So over the next week, their orders will be reassigned to other artists...if they haven't been already.  I know life happens, but THERE ARE LIMITS TO MY PATIENCE.

When commissioning from other artists, I only have two basic rules: Have Your Act Together And Maintain Contact. If something goes wrong, if you suddenly have to go on Summer vacation for 6 weeks, whatever. I need to know immediately. As long as I'm kept in the loop I can deal with it.

HOWEVER, if there are no progress reports or updates on your gallery, and if I don't hear from you after a certain amount of time, I WILL ASSUME THE WORST and TAKE THE APPROPRIATE ACTIONS. 

----------------------------------------


INFORMATION I CAN SHARE SO FAR...

Things have been jumping ever since June! Here's a quick summary to this point of a HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL SUMMER CON SEASON!

Changed things up a little bit this Summer by kicking things off at Phoenix Comicon. Glad I did, since I got to experience one of the larger pop-culture conventions in the country, and got drafted into a giant group of Attack On Titan cosplayers! 

Anime Expo was hotter and WAY more crowded than usual this year, but still made the most of it with the help of some new friends and unexpected surprises!

As you can tell from the latest photos, MetroCon is where I debuted my newest cosplay...MEGAMAN.EXE! That's right, the version from the old Battle Network series and NT Warrior animated series! One of my many "Dream Cosplays," EXE was commissioned from and made by the extremely talented :iconnegativedreamer:, who did a marvelous job on everything from the boots to the light-up Buster Cannon!

San Diego Comic-Con belonged to EXE and Final Form Sora, where I got autographs from the chief editor of Mega Man comics, one of the artists of Mega Man comics, and TETSUYA NOMURA, director of the KINGDOM HEARTS series! Not to mention ridiculously cool photo-ops like Sora playing Kingdom Hearts at the Square*Enix booth.

Then most recently was the NORCAL SUMMER COSPLAY GATHERING at Coyote Point Park, where my Final Form Sora got some awesome beach shots with a huge group of Disney Princesses, Godzilla, and many other magnificent cosplayers! 

As always, looking for pictures of my cosplays from said conventions and gatherings:

I think the AoT character I look most like is Marco, but it's hard to cosplay being... split? sawn? chewed? in half.
