I am sorry to inform you that I WON’T/CAN’T be at the JAPAN EXPO PARIS 2014.

I AM SORRY!;___;

I saw a doctor today and he made some blood tests and he said he can’t advice me to attend a convention in the near future, not as a visitor and not as a guest of honor, especially not if I am going to stand and talk and sign for the whole convention and sign for hours, in costume. 

He said it would pretty much be the most insane I could do in the next month. So before Winter and before I recovered fully I am not allowed to have such long trips and work so long and risk my health with that.

I was so excited to go to paris and see you guys, but my doctors said I should not and I trust him with my life.

*hangs head and walks away*
