Updates done to the site

Mr. J is Missing Out

At Anime Central this year I got to make a new and improved Harley Quinn costume that was miles better then the first time I ever made Harley (which was my first attempt at cosplay). AND I got to dress all pretty with my friend Penny!

Penny doesn’t get to see me very often, but she’s traveling to see me tomorrow, so in honor of getting to see one of my best friends, I thought I would finally sit down and post up this costume. Thanks to Elemental and LJinto for taking photos for me during later con hours. And thanks to Tee for putting up with  her corset while waiting for me to finish judging.


In the velvet darkness, of the blackest night…

…Burning bright, there’s a guiding star no matter what or who you are…Heartless Replicant

Okay, sorry for the Rocky reference, but the new theme of the website and the new costumes/photos had me singing this song. Mostly because its all black with burst of light. I posted my Shadow Heartless to the gallery. He comes complete with glowing yellow eyes. I posted new photos of Pris; which all have a ton of black with some awesome flash lighting effects by the lovely Elemental. And then I went back to the black backgrounds with the glowing rainbow colors for the theme. I think I’ll be keeping it for a while. Its kinda my favorite and it goes with the new banner (More from that costume to come in the coming weeks).

I also have gone through and given all the gallery pages a major facelift. No longer do they look like old Geocities pages with awkward text and weirdly spaced galleries. They now have a slide show, a new pretty banner -themed for each costume- and some of the descriptions have even been updated. (I can’t get to my sewing machine currently, so you can understand why I’ve been so productive eh?)

Will be uploading some reference photos in .Rar form soon for as many costumes as I still have reference photos I used sitting around for AND I’m gonna try to put together a tutorial on how I made my Heartless.

Silent Hill Downpour @ San Diego Comic Con

I got a chance to play Silent Hill: Downpour at SDCC this year. In light of the new trailer being released at Tokyo Game Show, I wanted to put up the video of my play through. In the next few days I’ll put up some subtitled commentary, for now, enjoy.
Also, I’ve updated a few of the costumes pages in the gallery. Mainly the first 5 you see. Check them out and tell me what you think!

Major Site Overhaul!

Hey guys. I’m playing with some new site features that I think you might like, but its gonna take a while to get them all emplimented since I’m traveling and working alot. So, PLEASE EXCUSE MY MESS!

Manry Costumes!

Its been hard to find time to update the website but I finally put aside some time for myself and I decided to update the website in that time. I should be working on costumes for SDCC >.<;

I added Arpegius and Firo to my costuming gallery. Both costumes are my attempt at being a man when I’m not covered in green make-up. I didn’t think I could ever do it, but I don’t think I did to bad. I’m definitely getting better with practice at this crossplay make-up thing.

Once fall hits I will probably have more time to add a few tutorials to the site that I’ve made and I also wanted to put all my reference photos and progress photos into their corresponding costume.

Also stay tuned for a few more costumes to be added to the gallery from the summer cons. I’ve got some really fun ones that totally go against my normal grain of costuming style!

Graduated and Working for Arda Wigs

Since Kollision Con alot has happened. I graduated college witha  Degree in Theatrical Directing in December, visited my family at their new home in Vegas and moved to St. Louis to start working for Arda Wigs! Thus I’ve been a busy, busy girl. I did do some work on the site however, I just didn’t update the news section.

So here’s what’s going down with the website update. I’ve re-organized my costume section into a “gallery” section, this way I can put pictures of my costumes, my make-up work and eventually some of my theatrical costume designs, maybe a short movie section and also some of my commissions for other people. For right now, its just separated into Costumes and Make-Up work. I’ve also organized Reference Art section, a Planned/Dream Costume List and a Progress Page. I’ve been wanting to do all these for a while because some of my favor parts of cosplay is seeing what people want to cosplay and their progress. (So far all I have up for the progress page is Dahlia Mason) I also wanted to put the Reference Art section up because I know how hard it can be for people sometimes to find reference art. So if there is a costume I’ve done that you would like to do, I have a section with the reference art I used for your use. (So far all I have up for reference art is Diana from Rule of Rose)

I also put up my Dahlia Mason from SH: Shattered Memories costume. I have quite a few other costumes to put up as well, but I’m a bit behind because I’m still working on fixing all my old costume pages to look nicer.

Overall the site is kinda a slow work in progress. Right now I am working on a new website for Arda Wigs. (Which kinda takes priority since it pays the rent) I’m also maintaining their Facebook Page, Twitter and Tumblr. I also am in charge of their Mailing List and sometimes I run their booth at conventions. Here’s a preview of their sites new layout!
Arda Wigs New Front Page Preview

Because I am working at Arda Wigs now, I will get to travel alot more to all sorts of conventions. I’m really excited for this. It gives me even more of a chance to meet other cosplayers and learn about the hobby. If I’m coming to a con near you, you can find me at the Arda Wigs booth, come and say ‘Hi!’

Updating Over the Fall

I’m still very much behind on videos from this summer and editing photos, but I choose a new theme for the website that I think it a bit more crisp and to the point for what I need the site to do. I’m slowly redoing all the costuming sections to be more organized by Photographer and I’m also going to include all reference pictures I still have of my costumes. Including some hard to find scans. So I hope that helps some people out in the future.

Upcoming cons at Youmacon and KollisionCon. I will be having a Silent Hill Panel at Kollisioncon that I will be posting about shortly. Stay tuned!
