Sunday, January 17, 2016 11:00 am – 12:00 pm Room 213

With the modern digital age and rapidly intensifying spotlight on the cosplay community and it’s members, many positive and negative things have come to fruition. In this panel we will focus on the positive, and how to harness a good attitude in the fight against opposition.

We will dive into further elaborating on the following subjects: Cyber bullying.
-Body positivity.
-Common misconceptions about cosplayers.
-The importance of accepting and not judging.
-Cosplay Competitions and losing gracefully.
-Dealing with Rainy Days.
-Paying it forward.
-Incorporating positivity into your daily routine.

This panel will come full circle and focus on you as an individual. No one is perfect, but by working day by day we can all become better people and better members of the cosplay community. Let’s come together and discuss the issues and problems at hand.

Slide6Hey everyone, I have exciting news! I have just created a Patreon! Please feel free to check out the full description on the Patreon site, but in short, I’ll summarize why I’ve decided to seek out and try this new platform.

Check out here: www.patreon.com/O_LeapingLizard

Because of you guys and all of your amazing support, I see Patreon as a stepping stone where I can further the quality of content I provide as an entertainer and an artist to you. As it stands, I am limited by what I can bring to you as a content creator. There is so much more I’d love to do and I honestly cannot do that without your help.

Investing in this Patreon, means further supporting the work I do. This does not mean I will be stopping all of my content on my other social media sites, or only catering to Patrons, if anything you will see more of my crazy shenanigans across all of my social media sites.

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the years. Every single one of you guys have further encouraged and surprised me. I never thought when I made this page two years ago that this could happen. I ask for your acceptance and support on this new endeavor.

Keep scaly my friends. ~Liz

Some good and bad news in the life of the Leaping Lizard.

Hey everyone! I have some sad and good news.

6a011168ce500e970c0167678d3bef970b

I just put down pretty much all of my savings and took a loan to save my kitty cat Sparkle. She is a repeat offender in the world of things she shouldn’t eat.

As a result, I’ll be taking a break from Cosplay. I will be dropping Megacon and Dragoncon from my lineup this year.

I will try to make the trip to Phoenix CC and I know I will be at Fantomfest.

It was very heartbreaking to decide this, but as much as I love cosplay, I love my kitty more and would go bankrupt for her in a heartbeat.

As it stands, she is currently not responding to her treatments so there will be more tests this morning.

Sorry to everyone. I cannot in any responsible fiscal way to afford these trips. Every penny will be going to my kitties bills, and they are sadly very steep.

At least now I guess I have time to focus my talents elsewhere. Time to hit the gym hard, play tons of video games, and work on my unfinished Cosplays.

I’ll share my progress, but new shoots, new cosplays, and multiple con appearances will be on the back burner for a bit. I do have several projects I need to finish so I’m going to work on those in the meantime.

I’m super upset and have been crying my eyes out about my baby girl. My kitties are my world and it really hurts to see any one of them hurting.

After the recent out-pour of support from you all and the amazing amount of messages. I have made this small donation section on my Storenvy Page. I have multiple options for those and honestly at this point in time, every single dollar helps. I don’t want to pressure anyone. If you would like to share or spread the word, I’d be grateful, but I won’t continue to request such repeatedly.

I will be updating her status and will be transparent about her medical costs for anyone interested. This is the second time I’ve had to do this and it breaks my heart. Last time was liver failure and this time she has ate something she shouldn’t.

So since I have decided it’s in my best interest to take a break from all the expensive cosplay stuff/life/things I have decided to seek another outlet I’ve been interested in pursuing.

So for good news!!!

When life gives you lemons… become a cosplay blogger for Word of the Nerd Online!!! Lol… Well looks like I’ll be playing a different role for a while. Prepare your buttocks for long winded rants, tutorials, toilet humor (OF COURSE), and on the rare occasion some actual decent life advice…
