I was recently informed by a good friend and fellow cosplayer, RareBear Cosplay, that when reading the newest issue of Cosplay Culture magazine she stumbled across a familiar face. On pages 82-83 of the Summer 2017 issue, is an article about Anime St. Louis by Jeremy Johnson, and it includes some featured photos of a few amazing cosplays from the convention. I am humbled to say that a photo of myself and my good buddy RNNinja is among them. This is one of many amazing photos we had taken that day by our photographer friend Thomas Ricks, as Ryoko and Tenchi from Tenchi Muyo. I can not express how awesome it feels to be included with the amazing cosplayers that are also featured in this publication. I am so excited and honored to be a part of this community and I am even more honored by having you all as followers and lovers of what LaKinta, Luna, and myself do. We cosplay because we LOVE it but, we love it even more because of you all and the happiness we get from spreading our message of cosplay equality and body positvity in the cosplay community. Thank you all so much!-RenChan
