Now I can be...
This shot was actually 2 years in the making! 
We originally shot it, but it was unfortunately lost in a double harddrive failure :(  It took us a while, but we were able to shoot it again and finally...here's the end result!! 
This photo is a dream come true for me and has been one of my cosplay goals since the very beginning...and quite possibly since I was born XDD

Character: Disney's Ariel from The Little Mermaid
Dress made and bedazzled for me by :icontherestlesscosplay:

Terra Branford - Sakizou Final Fantasy 6
After 3 months of working nearly everyday on this costume, I was able to debut it at Katsucon 2017!! 
I still have some stoning/details I'll be adding, however!
Everything you see was handmade by me down to the wig/shoes. You can read more about my costume construction here: cospix.net/TotallyToastyAri/co…
See my instagram for in progress photos/hallway shots!

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
