Back From Youma/Next Stop Kollision

Youma went wonderful. I don’t have much time between this con and next because I’m currently Asst. Designing Cabaret! Thus I won’t post about Youma until I get back from Kollision. However, I would like to say:

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!

Summer is ALMOST over!

And what a crazy summer it has been for me. I’m been all around the US selling wigs and wearing costumes. My body is soooo tired; I’m not sure how rested I am for my last semester in school!

I still have video footage from both Anime Expo and Anime Iowa to put up and I have a ton of photos and costumes and photo shoots to put up as well. I don’t know people can keep up with this sort of stuff on their websites in the summer. I posted a description of my Pris and my Mia costume. I’m playing around with a new layout for the costume descriptions, so let me know what you think.

Now to jump back into school! I’ve got a play and a show I am making puppets for very early in the year. Wish me luck!

Anime Iowa is Here!

Wow, its been a busy summer. I haven’t had much time to update the website between summer school, travel, moving from one home to the other and costuming! I will update eventually I promise!

This weekend I am at Anime Iowa for the first time. Normally it falls on GenCon weekend and I can’t go, but this year it’s the weekend before GenCon. This con is unofficialy dubbed MiriCon by alot of my cosplaying buddies because we all come and stay at my friend Miri‘s house and travel to the con right down the road.

For Anime Iowa Miri and I decided to do Mia and Nash. We wanted to fill out the characters we didn’t have made between our Lunar group of friends and I really wanted to see a Nash done. He’s one of my favorite characters. Not to mention Mia is just so adorable! <3 There will also be some Silent Hill & Chrono Trigger! And to top it off, I brought my camera for some beginner photo shoots. (Only one way to get good it practicepracticepractice)

AX; An Experience

Anime Expo has come and gone and let me tell you it was an awesome and busy ride! I’ve got TONS of video from the trip that I will be editting and putting up soon. Overall I had a wonderful time. The trip there and back was a blast. LA was pretty cool because it wasn’t blazing hot. The dealers hall was a fun time to work in and I enjoyed meeting everyone that came to the booth. Thanks to everyone that bought a wig and a big thanks to the ones that brought them back to the booth for us to see them on! That was one of my favorite parts of the con. I also got to meet up with some LA buddies that I have been friends with online for some time and never actually met in person. That was amazing. I met a ton of really talented cosplayers and got some photos in my newest costume; Pris!

Until I have the video ready of the trip, please enjoy the last part of my Anime Central video. Also, look out for gallery updates in the next few days!

Final Stuff for AX & ACen Saturday

I’ve already arrived at Harl’s house and have spent the last few days counting and drooling over all her wigs she just got in stock and building a HUGE DISPLAY out of pipe for her wig heads. Its been a fun time. We’ve cooked alot of good meals and I’ve had a great time taste testing all the English booze and food she brought back from England!

This is gonna end up being my line up for Anime Expo:
Murdoc Thursday, Firo Friday, Lucca Saturday with Pris making nightly appearances and possibly a Sunday appearance.

I’ve been accepted as an entrance into Cosplay.Com’s Hallway Costume Contest. I entered my Lucca costume since its one of the newest ones I’ve worked really hard on. So wish me luck! I just finished Pris about 2 minutes ago and I’m excited to premier her as well. Thank you everyone for voting on DA for your costume of choice. Look forward to more polls in the future so that you can play Barbie with me.

And here’s a VLog of Saturday at ACen. It includes some Dealer’s Room Antics, Crazy Masquerade Surprises and a back stage view of the costume contest with my friends Argento and Meesh.

ACen Friday & AX Projects

I finished the first day of Vlogs for YouTube. Warning, there is some language in here. NSFW

Most of the Vlog is me being overly giddy since by the end of Friday night I had been up for 40+ hours because of finals, commissions, the drive up and the con. But overall it was the day I took the most video I think. It includes, but is not limited to: Baccano Bathroom Tours, Chrono Trigger behind the Deathcom Shoot and Gorillaz telling stories about short-shorts.

This is the possible line-up for Anime Expo costumes. I have, since ACen, got a hat for Firo and I plan on adding a bit more details to my Murdoc Costume. Pris is leading the polls on DA as the favored costume to see at AX. Recently I kinda fell for Hetalia a bit. Its quite funny. So I decided I would make a Holy Roman Empire costume to go with Harl’s Chibitalia costume. However, that costume is on the back burner until I get Pris done.

I’m be working for Arda-wigs.com at AX! Come visit our booth. We have a contest going on for free Arda-Wig Gift Certificates!
