I've only been living in Kentucky since a fateful trip in 2013 involving a Switchblade Clown, and so far, I'm glad I can say one thing.
We have tons and tons of Sailor Moon fans.
And they are from all walks of life. All orientations, and there is a group that likes to cosplay. I myself am getting into Sailor Moon cosplay, on top of my usual collections:
And yet, while there are tons of people dressing up as the Sailor Guardians around here, and definitely buying out the DVDs (my husband just pre-ordered the R part 2 set for my birthday) there hasn't yet been an official presence of our Moon Princess at the Lexington ComicCon.
We all follow the officialViz Twitter for Sailor Moon, and many of us have altered work and family schedules, just to catch the latest Moonlight Party, but while California and New York's ComicCons get the glittery t-shirts and shiny buttons, our ComicCon only has local vendors, selling both real and bootlegged Sailor Moon goodies.
And quite frankly, this Kentucky Moonie is feeling mighty jealous.
So I've started a petition, and I hope you will all sign with me, especially since the Viz voice of Artemis ~ Black Power Ranger Johnny Young Bosch ~ is joining Lexington's ComicCon next year! It would be a stellar chance to snag a Moon Panel with Artemis himself!
The petition is on Change.org. Please help me bring Sailor Bryce and the rest of the Viz Moon Team to Kentucky!
