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?

MEGA MEN AT MEGACON!!!

Journal Entry: Sat May 9, 2015, 8:02 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...

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

THE BIG ONE!!!

Springtime brings MEGACON, my favorite convention of the year!!! The cosplays were on point as always, and I finally accomplished one of my long-time secret cosplay goals...to cosplay MEGA MAN at MEGACON!!! Brought EXE, who hadn't seen action since San Diego Comic-Con, and was joined by a friend who cosplayed Mega Man X the year before. Unexpectedly ran into a bunch of different Mega Man cosplayers, and it was absolutely fantastic!

Not to mention a wonderful Naruto Gathering & Dinner hosted by :iconpikabellechu: And here I thought Naruto Cosplay Dinners only happened at Anime Expo! :D A good thing about MegaCon this year was that people knew Menma when they saw him. Not once was I called "Sasuke" and I don't remember having to explain who Menma was to anyone. As a matter of fact, "Menma" was my official nickname for the weekend. Even while cosplaying Mega Man or Ace. I was still "Menma."

Another nickname I've apparently earned from MegaCon weekend is "Dragon-Skull Splitter."

... :shrug:

As always, looking for pictures of my cosplays from MEGACON 2015: 

MEGACON 2015: 
*Menma from Naruto The Movie: Road To Ninja
*MegaMan.EXE from MegaMan Battle Network
*Ace from Final Fantasy: Type-0

With MegaCon in the books, that means Summer Con Season is right around the corner too. As always, expect business to pick up starting Memorial Day weekend.

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

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Loved it. Watched the Double Feature on Thursday night, with Avengers 1 & 2 back-to-back. It was MARVELOUS! Wall-to-wall BUTT KICKING from start to finish!! Picked up where Captain America 2 left off. SO MANY CAMEOS, including FALCON and WAR MACHINE!!! And Ultron was a riot. As many quips as Tony Stark. Like a sober version of Bender from Futurama, trying to live his dream of killing all humans. Thor is growing on me (especially during the party scenes) and the Maximoff Twins (Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch) were cute together. Quicksilver having all the LOL moments. Vision is "Super Jarvis," I don't care what anyone says. And if that's a spoiler, then you've been living under a rock for the past two years. And can we talk about how much character development Hawkeye got this time around? A lot of fun, and can't wait for Avengers 2.5 next year, aka Captain America And His Amazing Friends, aka CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR.

Don't forget, Thanos Claus is coming to town.

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.
