Remember how I said I might be putting Grell on temporary retirement after Anime North? Well....
A couple of months ago, I announced that Grell would be going on a temporary retirement after Anime North, due to people associating too much with me about him. And it was driving me crazy. Especially since some people were telling me to drop my other projects and be Grell all weekend. And some told me I should only ever be Grell to events.
I had been sick and tired of it.
Well, since then I have done the Cospay Tea Party & Picnic (April 27), Free Comic Book Day/Star Wars Day (May 4), and Ottawa Comic Con (May 10). At none of these was I Grell. And no one questioned the lack of the lovely red wig. My mother even likes me in this wig.
No one asked me why there was a lack of Grell. Nobody was disappointed that I was another character. Everyone liked seeing the diversity of my characters.
Because of this, I don't think I will be putting him in a temporary retirement, as I am strongly considering taking him to the Summer Cosplay Festival in the GTA. This is an event where the location & date is voted upon. So I don't know when/where it will be yet.
So those of you who love Grell, he won't be going on a temporary retirement. He might go on hiatus if I order a new wig for him though.
