I am a cosplayer at heart and have been dressing up since before the world of conventions even entered my vocabulary! There is nothing better than the feeling you get from crafting and putting on a good costume! From my very first cosplay (Kakashi) to my latest works of Nightmare Moon, Nuriko, and Roy Mustang, I am so happy to have an amazing group of friends who share in my love of this art! If you ever have any questions for me, I encourage you to ask them! I try and stay afloat on pages such as Deviant Art, so don't loose faith in me if I take a little while to respond! If you ever wish to commission any of my work, I primarily focus in accessories and costumes with a dabbling in wigs, please message me on my Etsy page! <3
Hello again to all who follow my sorry attempts to stay up to date on DA! I apologize for such a long break (again) in posts... Life has been busy, in both good and bad ways, and I haven't taken the time to write any new journals...

So some updates are in order!

Fanime (wow so long ago now T_T) was very fun! Long lines aside, I had a lot of fun in Lara Croft and even dressed up like Yohji for a day! Likely going to retire Yohji now, or maybe just hold onto him for weekend adventures, especially since I finally live near my Aya, Ken, and Omi... I will post some of my Lara Croft pictures soon... I want to edit them a bit, they're just simple iPhone pictures, but the location was in a hotel, and I'm hoping to convince some lovely person to replace my background with a jungle or something more apprpriate!

Haha, funny Lara Croft tid-bit... Walked around the who con with a real climbing axe and working airsoft 1911. Wasn't stopped a once... Granted I'm not brandishing or swinging them about, but it was great to not get hasseled!

Moving along from Fanime, I skipped AX because I bought a car and had to travel a bit to pick her up... What car? Why thank you for asking! Its a 1967 Impala Sport Sedan, aka Dean's Impala from Supernatural! Oh yes, I went there... After spending the past three years pining over his lovely Impala, I finally found one (not being sold by the people in TN who are snatching them up and reselling them for over their value) and bought it! She's a work in progress for sure, but her guts are amazing, and aside from obvious cosmetic needs, she should be convention ready inside of a year... Well hopefully! X3

I am thinking about starting up a fundme for the Impala, not sure exactly what to offer yet, but I will post more as I come up with ideas. Maybe bumper stickers, cosplay photos, or even appearances/photoshoots with the completed Impala. I want other fan's to be able to enjoy the Impala as much as I do! It's seriously an indescribable experience to be in the car! I will post more and even pictures and links to my youtube videos as I load them to document the progress and explain a lot of the requirements to create a replica.
