:iconnocommissions: :iconnopointcommissions: :iconnorequests:

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?

All The News You Need To Know

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 8, 2014, 2:52 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...

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

90,000 PAGE VIEWS

As of TODAY, my DA has reached the 90,000 page view plateau! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT! Without you, none of this is possible. The endless barrage of favorites and comments is greatly appreciated! Let's keep it going! Here's looking at 10 THOUSAND WATCHERS AND 100 THOUSAND VIEWS BY SUMMERTIME!

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

2013 was an incredible year in many ways. For many in the Cosplay World however, it seemed to be the Year Of Butthurt. Whether it was reality show ridiculousness, Facebook cosplay pages gone wrong, ill-advised rants in major publications, controversial "carpet" cosplays or the "_____ is not consent" movement on a warpath, it seemed everyone was offended by everything.

And here I was, ignoring all of that because I have...

NEW COSPLAYS!

Kirito from Sword Art Online and Connie Springer from Attack On Titan are the newest additions! Photos are already up in my gallery, and more will be on the way. As always, looking for pictures of my cosplays from my most recent conventions and gatherings:

ANIME LOS ANGELES 2014
*SAGE MODE NARUTO
*ROAD-TO-NINJA NARUTO
*SOCCER JERSEY RYOGA from Ranma 1/2
*CASUAL NEKU from The World Ends With You

RIVERSIDE ASIAN PACIFIC LUNAR FESTIVAL
*KIRITO from Sword Art Online

ATTACK ON TITAN VALENTINES GATHERING IN LITTLE TOKYO
*CONNIE SPRINGER

Since we are now in the month of March, that means "March Madness" is coming, which means the annual blitz of cons and gatherings that produce a ridiculous number of epic cosplay photos.

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

BUFF SORA AND XION...TOO HOT TO HANDLE?

If you've been paying attention the past couple of weeks, you'll notice something missing from my newest uploads. Apparently my extremely popular "Buff Sora and Xion" commission was a little too hot for some people to handle.

Whatever. Some people need to get over themselves. It already accomplished what I wanted it to accomplish. What's seen can not be unseen. Too little, too late.

For those interested in it's current whereabouts, check the bottom of my ID section. *cough* r-legend.blogspot.com *cough* Don't expect the blogspot to be updated regularly though. As a matter of fact, expect it to be neglected with a vengeance. That's just the way I am with new accounts for the first 6-8 months. For now consider it my storage area in case of catastrophic system fail or if the local Fal'Cies start giving me attitude, if you catch my drift.

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

TAGGY McTAGGERSON

I've been tagged three times in less than a week with those 10 question journals. O_O* So here's some serious makeup Q & A. No, I'm not posting any rules or tagging anyone or anything like that. Oh, you want me to post rules? Fine, here...

1. Don't tell me what to do with my journal.
2. You're not the boss of me.
3. Don't EVER tell me what to do with my journal.

Honestly, most people I know get annoyed with tags very quickly.


:iconjeremyx2000: asks:

1. Have you heard of Code Lyoko?

A: YES.

2. What's your fave video game (series)?

A: Right now, KINGDOM HEARTS, definitely. It shifts between that, Final Fantasy, Street Fighter and Legend of Zelda.

3. Do you think that anime is a detriment to our lives? (Since my dad preaches it)

A: SOME anime is a detriment, but not all of it. For me, it's been a massively successful social outlet.

4. Do you have a lot of friends?

A: Define "friends."

5. Are you in a special relationship with any of those friends?

A: Define "special." Your idea of special and MY idea of special are guaranteed to be two different things.

6. What's your favorite Disney movie?

A: As of this moment, Wreck-It-Ralph has dethroned Lion King as my #1.

7. Have you seen any movie by Hayao Miyazaki?

A: Yes.

8. How did you hear about deviantART?

A: I was introduced to it by a fellow cosplayer.

9. Do you think I'm wasting my time here or that I'm not talented enough for dA?

A: I think you need to branch out more on DA. That's the problem most artists have. Lack of exposure. 99% of your target audience has no idea that you exist.

10. Is this tag a bit invasive or weird?

A: No, I like when people ask me questions. It shows that they're interested and they're paying attention. Just don't expect me to bug other people with it.



:iconkytelian: asks...

1. Anime or manga?

A: Anime by a nose.

2. What's your MBTI personality type?

A: Last time I remember, it was INTJ. Took the test more than once and got slightly different answers both times. But I do remember INTJ being one of them.

3. Any current fandom obsessions?

A: Naruto, Kingdom Hearts, Attack On Titan, Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Sword Art Online.

4. Are you more day time or night time oriented?

A: DAY TIME. Without question.

5. Favorite drink?

A: 7-UP.

6. What's your favorite video game?

A: Currently Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.

7. If you could cosplay one character, who would it be and why?

A: My own OC. He's got a bunch of different outfits. XD

8. What are your top three favorite Disney movies and why?

A: Wreck-It-Ralph, because it focuses on classic video games.
The Lion King, because of it's sheer epicness.
A Goofy Movie, because Roxanne.

9. If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?

A: I AM MAGNETO! MASTER OF MAGNET! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

10. What's your favorite past time?

A: Winning.


:iconbrawl9977: asks...

1. Are you a morning or night person?

A: Morning. Late Morning.

2. What was your favorite childhood television program?

A: What wasn't? Transformers, G. I. Joe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, DuckTales, Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, X-Men, etc. etc.

A: Yes. Chaos Emeralds, Infinity Gems, Power Stones. Yes. All of that.

4. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

A: I AM MAGNETO! MASTER OF MAGNET! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

5. Ever been addicted to a video/computer game? Which one(s)?

A: Yes.

6. List 3 of your best personality traits:

A: I'm smart.
I think outside the box.
People trust me because I take care of business.

7. Name 1 regret you have:

A: Having a choice between two girls, and asking out the wrong one.

8. if you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be?

A: Hmmm...I'd have to think about that. Not a question I take lightly.

9 If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?

A: Michael Westen. Jack Bauer. Bruce Lee. Val Kilmer. Davis X. Machina. Something awesome like that.

10. Are you a Nintendo fan or gamer? if so what's you fave franchises and series.
