Hello. This is KinKi (Claudia). I am not sure if anyone remembers me.. I dropped out of Cosplay just before Usa Musume Deut.. and ran away to Japan. I got married with Jhonny, and we are still living in Japan now. I just wanted to post to say hello to everyone that still remembers me.. I also wanted to appologize for dropping out all of a sudden, not replying to anyone, and just dissapearing.. I am not sure how to contact anyone anymore.. so I thought it would be easiest to post here.

Japan is nice.. Marriage is hard, but rewarding. I look back at all the old Cosplay times.. and I kind of miss it.. Although.. I dont think that I will be returning anytime soon. I really feel that I have grown up a lot since then.. and I really lost weight and got healthier too.. I dropped to 50/48 Kilo now.. wow.. I am not the chubby, red lipstick, Jrock / Kinki Kid fan girl anymore.. and I hardly even watch anime.. Oh, but I love One Piece, Chibi Maruko chan, and Sazae San. I am stuggling as an English Teacher for Preschool to Kindergarden age children, as well as a Model for Oscar Promotion. (The same company as Ueto Aya.. she is Jpop singer..but I just started.. so it is not really a big deal.. and I still love to eat sweets.. so I am not Model type.. ) I auditioned for Momusu 3 times in the past.. the first time I passed as a Hello Project something.. but I was in America at the time..and my oppurtunity passed.. but now Momusu is a little dead.. (I am really sad) so I auditioned for OSCAR PRO. and I passed.. I dont want to do modeling.. I actually wanted to try to talent.. but.. we will see... (doubtful.. but I will keep trying) I am also enjoying my Teaching Job.. though it is very hard, I love my kids. Everyone calls me "Kuu Sensei" As for Marriage.., I am happy with Jhonny.. he is still really Pretty, and very sweet to me.. he is just a little sensitive about my cosplay past.. that is why I have not contacted anyone.. Actually, I am writing this without him knowing.. so Shhhh....

But, I still think of you guys a lot, and I wonder how all of you are doing. I miss So Cal.. I miss the attention.. I miss the fun Karaoke partys.. Maybe someday, we could do it all again. I am always visiting the homepages, and I really enjoy the new costumes.. everyone makes really great costumes.. and they have really improved over the years.. I wish I could make something too.. I am really happy to see that everyone is still doing well, and having fun.. Cosplay has really changed hasnt it!! Well, I am sorry to those of you who have no idea who I am and read this.. For the people that do remember me, I just wanted to say HI!! I hope that all of you are doing good!! Please take care, and keep up Cosplaying!! ( I am not going to post my mail because it might just lead to trouble later.. sorry.. just, I will check this post to see if someone writes.. )

I'm kind of newer, too. But you're always welcome in cosplay. The more the merrier. I'm afraid One Piece has been pretty badly butchered in the US. =/ I knew 4Kids was going to screw it up.

There you are!

I was in Japan recently, and was looking for American talent. I tried my best to contact you, with no luck. Simply, you were gone, and your charismatic photos had disappeared. I thought about the happy go lucky girl I'd known, the creative sort, and then, by some chance I met someone that said they knew you from High School! Small world, considering seven degrees. In anycase, it is wonderful to read your own reflections about life, escaping to some far off place. I've done it myself. I wish to give you advice, but all I can say is that you choose the life you want to live. So choose well Claudia. Be brave. There's so much more, but we'll save that for a chance encounter.
