Sometimes I wanna pretend to be tough, but the goofball inside me always comes screaming out. There's no better person to be than myself! The Punisher jacket is from @rageonofficial. The shirt and [one-of-a-kind] Croconana are from @sorbetjungle!

I've been volunteering at the front desk of the @usokandahar after work, but hosting video game tournaments is where I really shine. The Super Smash Bros WiiU tournament was a lot of fun! Managing events feel great!
@theuso is a wonderful institution that allows me to share my passion with others. I've had so much fun volunteering for almost 5 years now! Being able to help other people smile in a not so great environment brings me a deep sense of satisfaction and joy! Support the Troops and the at USO!

Here's my #2017BestNine. I started my year meeting the living meme, #SaltBae! It was my first foray to PAX South! I went on my second trip to Japan! I finally got to cosplay my Tae Kwon Do inspiration, Kim Kaphwan! I had an amazing time at NYCC! Overall, it's been an excellent year and this was just a taste. I have a feeling 2018 will be even better!

Here's my tentative line-up for EVO Japan! I'm still wavering between G-Mantle and Clark, but I'm seriously leaning toward the former. I can't wait to attend my second international event! SNK all the way! Both costumes are made by @bobbinweavecostumes. My mask is by @theatermaskscom!

Here's a throwback to 2016's New Year's event I hosted at the @usokandahar! I'm happy to announce I'll be back again this year AND hosting another game tournament before the year let's out. I've had so many great memories come out of @theuso; it's been a fantastic 5 years of volunteering!
And yes, I'm wearing a flamingo hat.

Happy Thanksgiving's Day from sunny Afghanistan! I'm thankful for the ability to spread smiles and laughter wherever I go! Shout out to my friends, family, and @theuso (especially the @usokandahar) for enabling me to be the wild, crazy person I am! Stay safe out there, all you wonderful people!

I'll be going on my third trip to Japan in January accompanied by @s_roberts90, @cosplaytendency, and another friend. I'll be cosplaying at EVO Japan; it'll be my second international event! I'm really looking forward to it, meeting old friends, and making new ones, as well as seeing new sights! It's going to be amazing!

"Looks like I did it again!" I'm back in Afghanistan wearing unique attire while working during the day and volunteering in the @usokandahar by night! It feels great to be back in my groove! SUPPORT THE USO!
Seriously, @theuso is a fantastic organization that helps out a lot of people. I know I wouldn't be who I am today or have the friends I do without it. The USO changes lives everyday! SUPPORT THE TROOPS and Happy Veteran's Day!

I'm starting to edit my convention photos. Links and albums will be on The Legendary Duo Facebook page with highlights listed here. Until then, enjoy this photo of me as the only man alive that can look this good in a shark hat, flag bowtie, and Detective Heart of America shirt. They call me "Hot Chocolate." #JarvisLife #ChocoFox #MadHatter #DetectiveHeartOfAmerica #shinesty #sandbox
My friend let me know that the video I posted of Saltbae at my table in the @nusr_et doing his thing is being shared by some other page. It's crazy that the video is still circulating around almost a year later! Shout out to @cambrose85 for getting me to this awesome establishment. It's some of the best food I'd eaten anywhere!
This was back at the end of January. Maybe I'll repost the video again as well. My life is pretty cool sometimes.

Throwback to two weeks ago when I found that magical hotel mirror that changed my life. Guest starring @maxapogee!
Two months until Japan and I have four goals: mail even more holiday cards, edit all my recent convention pictures, volunteer more hours in the USO, and get into much better shape before the new year. Deployed during wintertime is the best time to diet and get fit so I think everything else should fall in place. Hopefully I won't have to rely on magic mirrors to look ready to rock. Let's see how I look come January!

This photo is from 9 years ago at the last Halloween party I was invited to. A member of my platoon, @aebeanbag7, threw the party and I was a generic boxer.
A lot of my friends assume that, since I'm a cosplayer, I must really love celebrating Halloween, but I've never gone trick or treating or done much of any sort of partying. This is also my first throwback Thursday post. I'm a pretty odd guy that doesn't get invited to many parties, but I'm also a pretty awesome guy who's life is a party. #JarvisLife #halloween #tbt #boxer
(1 cat + 1 well placed Love Live hat - Erin) × dreamy stares = Harley loves me. That's right, @10thmuse. Look into those cat eyes. Feel every piece of that love I'm getting. Harley is courtesy of @danabeth349. The love I'm getting is a product of these chocolate hands made for petting. #catsofinstagram #JarvisFriends #JarvisLife #MoonCats #ErinSoBitter #LoveLive
I went to my esteemed friends' wedding yesterday (random pics later) in a custom suit and shirt made over at @theqg. @qgphill got me that stylish hook-up! The hat is a Borsalino I picked up in Rome. The Gundam tie and pins were from my last trip to Tokyo. I'm pretty happy with the way everything came out! If I didn't run around so much, is suit up everyday. [Random shot of my camel, Herbert Wednesday, because I'll be at work soon.] #JarvisLife #TheQG #SuitUp #NotBigJustTall #Bandai #Borsalino #StylinAndProfilin
"I'm too sexy for my shirt." @tmronin snapped this great photo of me strutting my stuff during the cosplay contest dance off. I may not have won the competition, but I'm still always winning! Shout out to @soniaralynn for nominating me to go act a fool during the @cegpresents Cosplay Cruise!

Grandmaster Bushido Brown will always be one of my favorite cosplays! Many thanks to everyone who snags my picture!

It's still Flex Friday somewhere. This going to be my "before" picture as I prep for EVO Japan and Katsucon. My Cos-Fit brothers and sisters keep me motivated to stay on track, although I've fallen off to some degree. I intend to make right this winter to do them proud.
Shout out to @tx_dredd, @_dre.kosplay_, @s_roberts90, and many others for being excellent! I can't let @zencosplays down when I'm Kamane at Katsu!
