There's only one problem left...
" much I'm going to miss her."

Finally got to reshoot this costume after fixing my wig and adding more sparkles! I just love the ending sequence to this film and new I had to recreate parts of it when this costume came to existence!

Thinking of doing a Kiriban contest for 70,000!! (which is...holy CRAP AMAZING *-* thank you!) What kind of prizes would you guys be interested in?? (I'll probably choose two to do!) 

18 deviants said Autographed 8x10 print of your choice of costumes I have hi res photos of. (I've actually gotten numerous requests for autographed prints, which really amazes me O_O <3)
13 deviants said Journal feature of your profile/select deviations
8 deviants said Choose the next costume I upload a photo of!
5 deviants said This one's rather silly, but I saw someone doing it on Tumblr and thought it might be fun! Request a (SIMPLE) closet cosplay for me to post a photo of. lol
4 deviants said Request a tutorial/meme for me to post (this one may get iffy as some things I don't have documented or may not be easy to recreate!)
Hey all!
I haven't even been checking DA in the past few weeks...and for that I apologize! I started a new job this week on top of my freelance photography work, so I've been nothing but busy!!
I will be attending Anime Central (ACen) this weekend and I'm REALLY excited! The new costumes that were planned ended up not working out from my lack of time, but I'm excited to debut :icontherestlesscosplay:'s amazzzing Breakfast Princess costume on Sunday!! Friday I'll be walking in the Lolita Fashion Show for an indie designer (EPIC EXCITED<3). Saturday I'll be wearing FFX-2 Thief Rikku and possibly my Babydoll from Sucker Punch. Saturday I'm really excited for because I'll be shooting with Ger Tysk, the amazzzzing girl behind Chou Wa Photography and the cosplay book "Breaking All the Rules". Although I'm working A LOT of this con (but shooting with some amazing people!), I'm hoping it'll be a lot more relaxed than my past few cons<3

I hope to see all of you guys there! If you see me, don't be scared to come say hi! If I'm shooting, just come give me a hug and tell me all the stress will be worth it in the end<333 XDDD
