Hey, welcome, welcome, COBALTSPIDER! I'm from Minnesota, and I, too, would love to have the money to take a vacation in Japan--but my self-taught Japanese is next to invisible! Some of the members of this team have been fortunate enough to vacation or even live in Japan, but I'm not one of them.
Oh, that's TRAGIC that you missed the chance to cosplay as Peach and Toad--that would have been SO CUUUUTE!! The lack of money is an awful thing. It will probably keep me from going to an anime convention this year.
Oh yeah, I wasn't keeping up with my sparkpage, which made me feel stressed and guilty, so I turned it offline for a while until things are calmer at home. I'm still active on SparkPeople and I still receive and send spark email.
I got a message comment on my sparkpage and I couldn't return the message back to her so since I need an introduction I'll add them answers here.
I'd like to someday save enough money to take a week vacation in Japan. (I'm from Ohio) So I plan on first finding some Japanese language classes within the area that I could take since my self taught just isn't cutting it like I'd like it to.
Yes I also joined a anime cosplay team. Basically I'd like to lose weight so I can actually have more choices in what I could be as well as feel comfortable that I pulled it off. Sadly last year I missed out on a convention on which I was going to be Peach (Princess Toadstool) with at the time my son was about 6 months and was going to dress him as Toad (The cute mushroom guy). But I didn't have the money to go and stay at the resort it was held in. :(
