In mid-March, I was able to check out AX Live × Desu-Nation’s St Paddy’s Cosplay Event. It was great hanging out with the AX Live cast and Desu-Nation crew as well as other friends who came out to support the event! I was even able to do a quick little shoot with my friend, AX Live co-host Kari (post here)!
So many people in attendance for the AX Live St. Paddy’s Event!

Awesome sponsors included AX Live, Desu-Nation, Crunchyroll, and Good Smile Company!
