You'll note that I've changed my cosplay wish list.  Part of it is being more realistic about my body type, time constraints, and comfort levels at conventions--I can't both be press and walk around in full armor (I've done that, and running a camera while worrying about your costume is very stressful).  I've gained weight, changed proportions, and can't use my old patterns without alterations.  I've added simpler, more comfortable costumes because--let's face it--I'm getting older and can't as easily cosplay 15yr old anime girls.  My dayjob is becoming more and more complex and time consuming, which is a good thing for my career, but bad for my cosplay hobby.  Thus, the changing of the list.

Also, I'm trashing (getting rid of) Irelia.  I know I spent a lot of time and effort on her, and money as well, but I'm not happy with my progress.  Because I'm in such a rush for the convention, I'm making mistakes I can't remedy, taking shortcuts I shouldn't, and basically am racing through it without properly fitting any of it.  It's stressing me out, frustrating me, and upsetting me.  I can't fix a lot of the issues because they're foundational, aka I'd have to start over from scratch, and I'm just not into Irelia enough to want to do that.  So I'll take the experience gained--I came up with a new technique during the process, which you can catch on our podcast--and simply move on.

I think I'll simply have to do less each year with what time I have.  For now, career comes first, so while I will still cosplay--I enjoy it--I will simply be doing it slower.

Hi! I'm a young lady who enjoys many of the arts--painting, sculpting, sewing, general crafting, photography, videography, and making music. DA is primarily where I showcase my crafts, cosplay, and photography. I have a great fondness for anime and Renaissance-fantasy inspired crafts, which are mostly what you'll see here. Feel free to ask questions about technique--I'm happy to share. I also run a podcast about cosplay called CosPod, along with my co-host and co-nspirator TifaIA.

I'm an avid gamer and currently play in LFR games at conventions; I'm also a casual writer (primarily Saint Seiya fanfiction).

Nice to meet you all! Drop me a note if you'd like to chat; I'm very friendly and I rarely bite.

Thank you very kindly!  I do co-host a show about cosplay and the skills that I use to make my creations--please feel welcome to join us; I am all about teaching people to be able to accomplish what they seek to achieve.  As for my wheels...yeah, my bike probably isn't very happy with me; I've been neglecting her due to winter weather.  *wince*

So the past few weeks of making my costume for Halloween I've seen you in forums for cosplaying. You've helped me out so much by the answers you gave people! xD

Thank you!  Glad I could help.  And thank you as well for the watch.  If you're interested in more wacky cosplay stuff, take a look at CosPod, our video podcast about cosplay.  We do tutorials and talk about various aspects of cosplay once every two weeks.
