There's only one problem left... by TotallyToastyAri
There's only one problem left...
"...how 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!

The Lamb - Young Elizabeth by TotallyToastyAri
The Lamb - Young Elizabeth
This costume was an absolute nightmare to make, but an absolute dream to see completed!! See more details on what went into this costume here: www.acparadise.com/acp/display…
Major thanks to :icontherestlesscosplay: who majorly masterminded a lot of the patterning! Without her patience and willingness to try to achieve the impossible (particularly with my obnoxious attention to detail), this costume would simply not exist (well...maybe within another lighthouse!). I can't wait to share more photos with you all!!

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
