Otakon 2023

Otakon 2023

We're almost there! I got to reunite with the wonderful Phalafel Cosplays in this episode. Mostly talking about both her time at Otakon this past July alongside my time at FanExpo Boston earlier this month. We talk about her cosplays she wore including Tears of the Kingdom's Ganondorf which was certainly a comfortable cosplay to wear aside from the dreaded sandals and concrete floors. We also touch on how different versions of imposter syndrome affect us, content creation plans, Zelda spoilers, and other games we've been playing. Hope you all enjoy this episode :D

ConnectiCon 2023

I want to start by apologizing for the audio issues on my end. I got confused thinking my mic was getting picked up. I didn't fix it until way later. Thankfully my guests Mink the Satyr and Dannylion did a WHOLE LOT of talking as they discussed their time at CT Con last weekend. In addition, we touch upon the ongoing WGA/SAG-AFTRA strikes. There's really not much else to say so I'll let Mink and Dany do all the talking. The good news, is that i figured it out and now know what to do for future episodes. I was just concerned about potential echo in my voice/doubling up :O.

2023 Hopes & Plans

2023 Hopes & Plans

2023 has arrived and I wanted to share my goals for this year as far as the show goes in addition to my content creating efforts! This also marks a debut in dual streaming live on Twitch to give me even more ways to create for that platform. While short, I wanted to kick off this "Road to 100 Episodes" initiative since I'm confident this is the year I'll reach it. Wanting to collaborate with some insanely talented/well known creators is one of many goals I hope to reach. I truly do love podcasting and do air out some worries I have with the ever so present scheduling difficulties that come with this hobby. I also lay out my streaming plans as far as new games I'll be playing over the next 6 months or so :O. PLUS, get hyped for PAX East since I officially am set to attend with the hotel being booked and everything else that comes with it. As always, thank you guys so much for listening. I really want to make 2023 special for CosplayBytes
