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?

HAPPY AUGUST 8TH!

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 6:50 PM
Greetings once again to all of my friends, fans, photographers, watchers, frequent favoriters, llama senders, comment droppers, fellow cosplayers, struggling artists, people that I watch and favorite at random, and people who favorite my stuff at random! 

Here's what's going on in my world:

THE FEED...

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

HAPPY AUGUST 8TH!!!

Today marks the 7th Anniversary of NARUTO AT CAMDEN YARDS, where it "all began" for my Naruto cosplay Shenanigans. August 8, 2008. 08/08/08!

NARUTO INVADES CAMDEN YARDS by R-Legend

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


THIS IS MY HOUSE!!! (Summer Convention Update)

FLORIDA SUPERCON!!! My birthday present to me. Still have sand in my shoes from Miami Beach, and couldn't be prouder! Weather was hot and unpredictable, but the payoff was worth it. Glad to have the opportunity to go, and glad to meet plenty of new cosplayers and a few Internet friends in person. Also glad that Florida cosplayers still remember Mortal Kombat Naruto. Oh yes, and of course...a pic with WWE DIVA PAIGE!!! As always, looking for photos of my cosplays. 

FLORIDA SUPERCON 2015: 
*NEAR from Death Note
*NARUTO UZUMAKI from Naruto Movie "The Last"
*MIAMI HEAT VEN-VANITAS from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep

Celebrity Encounter:
Paige and Near by R-Legend

ANIME EXPO!!!! So many photos, minor celebrity encounters and similar glorious acts of random. Pleased with the dual locations to pick up badges on Day Zero. My Dream Drop Sora occassionally mistaken for KH3 Sora, hee hee! Crowded like last year, but at least not the entire con. Saw WAY more people I knew than last year too which was a plus. Glad to see more first-timers from the East Coast and the travelling regulars too!! Saw NARUTO THE MOVIE: THE LAST too in all its glory. Got to the ballroom a little late, the room was full, but people left and I got in anyway!!! (Thank you staffer guy!) NaruHina The Movie is actually Naruto vs. Evangelion with Ninja Kaworu on the moon trying to snake Hinata from Naruto. Bad idea, Bro. You just indirectly ended the never-ending pairing wars with that genjutsu. Plus "Attack on the Colossal Moonrock Titan," and the Marvel After Credits Scene setting up the next movie. Seriously, there were so many reference it wasn't funny. All it was missing was Nick Fury. 

"Boruto Uzumaki, I'm here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative."

Still wading through the sea of photos but here's who I cosplayed!

ANIME EXPO 2015:
*NARUTO UZUMAKI from Naruto Movie "The Last" 
*SORA from Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance
*MEGAMAN.EXE from Mega Man Battle Network
*NEAR from Death Note
*QUICKSILVER from Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Wait a minute. 4th of July weekend...Sora (red), Near (white), and Mega Man (blue.) Yeah, that happened. XD

And ah, the joys of cosplaying Near. An L cosplayer will always find you. Light cosplayers go out of their way to avoid you. And on the street, no one wants to mess with the guy wearing all white and an involuntary death stare. Beggars avoid eye contact and even the crazy homeless guy who talks to himself will STFU.

Celebrity Encounters:
*J. A. Adande (ESPN shows Around The Horn and Pardon the Interruption)
*Junko Takeuchi (Japanese voice actress/seiyuu of NARUTO!!!)

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

SHARKNOB'S MECHA DRAWING PROJECT!!!
One of my awesome commission artists, :iconsharknob:, is in the midst of a little mecha drawing project. Check it out!

MECHA FREE DRAWING PROJECT!!!

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

GROUP INVITATIONS

A quick reminder that in most cases I WILL ONLY ACCEPT INVITATIONS TO GROUPS WITH 100 MEMBERS OR MORE. There are very rare exceptions, but for the most part I want to expose my gallery to the widest audience possible, and can't do that by joining groups that are tiny, fly-by-night, or here-today-gone-tomorrow. Gotta prove that you're for real, and that you're in it for the long haul. 

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

BLOGSPOT REMINDER 

Another reminder that my Blogspot will be updated completely at random with artwork that I commission from other great artists. Including uncensored works that are "too hot" for the haters. Note me if you don't know the link.

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

ATTACK OF THE COMMISSIONS! or "MAKE IT SO, NUMBER ONE."
The commission train keeps on rolling! Seeing my favorite pairings drawn is like watching my favorite sports team win the World Series or Super Bowl or Champions League. An exhilarating rush like no other! I've got a ton more ideas and with the help of VERY TALENTED ARTISTS all over DA, I will "Make Them So." 

The list is again being reshuffled due to upcoming themes and changing priorities. But works will be uploaded as normal. Check back later for more details.


That's all for now. More news as it develops.

Hello! Sorry to bore you, but i would like to know: why have you removed your work "Commission: Kasumi" from my group? :iconkasumixayane:

I was really sad when i read it :(
Your drawings are amazing! It's rare to find such piece of art for DOA

Sorry for the confusion. Kasumi and Ayane isn't one of my preferred pairings but I accidentally hit yes on the invite. :blushes: By all means, send an add request to the commission artist!
