Animfest was a huge blast. It was my first full con and cosplaying Blake was amazing. I met an amazing JNRP Team as well as fellow RWBY's Oh and and incredible Neptune and Neo...
But besides that I also met this cosplayer named Hioshi Jackson. Now I have never heard of him before but I knew from seeing his cosplay that he was amazing at it.
He had just finished having people take his pictures when he stopped me and complimented me of my cosplay of Blake. Of course, I was ecstatic since this amazing cosplayer liked a cosplayer I, the newby, did. We quickly struck up a conversation and he told me he was actually a new voice actor for Rwby. His character was Fox from team CFVY and the character Fox was actually inspired by him. Now it didn't seem so far fetched but the fact that he quickly introduced me to his manager and began talking about it had me thinking he was just Bs'ing me. (It wouldn't be the first...) So I was skeptical but nonetheless enjoyed meeting him.
Later that day my friends I had met (the same day) asked me to join them on the runway shoot. Chad was a male yang and Justin was a male Ruby. Now all they needed was a Wiess to complete the team. (which was a guy as well along with an added male Blake of course) I was the only female of the group which I found hilarious.
But during the long process of being trapped in a room for what felt like weeks while they got us organized we began to talk to Hioshi again. (who sat behind us) he was such an awesome guy and talking to him was a lot of fun.
We of coursed asked him questions about RT and he told us how different it was to not have Monty around. Although it was amazing to have his brother, he wasn't Monty. He said no one was really the lead over the production (besides Monty) so getting rwby out was hard. He said they were shooting for the end of October to release volume 3 of rwby. And considering RoosterTeeth just announced it will be released October 24th, Hioshi was obviously legit. (which makes me mad that I never got a picture with him)
Oh and that amazing tournament that everyone talks about? Yeah that's not happening in the 3rd volume... So don't get your hopes up. This season is more of building everything up, introducing more teams and all of that. But nonetheless I know it will be incredibly.
So yeah, that's what happends when you live in Texas..
