MONTHS SINCE I LAST POSTED. I'M SO SORRY GUYS. I have been so busy with things that deviantart has, yet again, not been a priority at all. I'm amazed that I'm so close to 50k page views and almost 1k watchers @A@. I have loads of photos to post so I'll start getting on that asap. Lots to say so I'm gonna break stuff into chunks.
LIFE IS GREAT. Thank you everyone who has been sympathetic since my last journal. I've managed to work my life out pretty well which is most of the reason why I've been gone. Stuff with family is a-ok, car stuff got worked out, and the best thing is me and my boyfriend worked out our differences and are more in love then we ever have been. Besides small things that happen from time to time life has been pretty excellent. Nothing really much to say except that this is probably the most I've ever been happy and content with my life. I'm excited for every new day and depression and things have disappeared almost entirely. Then I must go onto....
I GOT AN INTERNSHIP FOR WHAT I'M GOING TO SCHOOL FOR! I start very soon doing Motion Graphics and some animation for a small company. This is extremely exciting and huge for me! This also might lead into paid contracts for other gigs (I'm already waiting for a yes or no on one). I cried for joy when I found out!
I also got put as team lead motion graphics and special effects for a short film at our school. Another amazing opportunity that just came to me that is really exciting. It's like I'm working in the real world, ahhhh. Graduation for me is in December so it's awesome all these things are coming out now.
But now, for probably what you all would rather read about....
I actually have been active in cosplay, mostly on my facebook page because it's easy to update (Check it out, I post there almost every day: [link]). It's probably best to kinda break this up into sections too...
Filia's wig has eaten up a lot of my time in terms of cosplay but I'm almost finished! You can see my partial Samson in my newest deviation but I'm making tentacles for him too! I wasn't able to get both of them done in time but here is a preview of one of them: [link]. Other things I have been working on are Casual Lilly from Katawa Shoujo which is about 95% done and a Blanca Gijinka from Animal Crossing which I just need to make the mask able to have dry erase on. You should be seeing all of these costumes soon since I wore them to Sakuracon. Speaking of which.
I had a great time this year! The only bad thing that happened was my phone and my 3DS got stolen when I was taking a picture (got my phone replaced though and going to get the 3DS replaced soon too). I wore Rigby from Regular Show, Milk from Pop'n Music, Casual Lilly from Katawa Shoujo, Filia from Skullgirls, and Blanca from Animal Crossing! I did lots of photoshoots while I was there so expect some pictures. Some other cool things worth touching on were I got to meet =rtil (one of the animators on Skullgirls) and talk to him for awhile about SG and Katawa Shoujo which was pretty awesome. I also stopped by the Sanshee booth and the guys there were super stoked about my Filia cosplay! Said I had one of the best Samson's they have seen and it made me blush so hard. They gave me a Filia sticker for being so cool which I put on my hard drive.
WNW is coming up very soon which is a great event for any of you that live in the Pacific Northwest [link]. I will be going to that convention and mostly hanging out. But I plan to bring my 100% completed Filia there as well as my Fionna with a complete genderbent group. Super excited for this since I'm still all jazzed from Sakuracon.
I AM 100% CONFIRMED FOR ANIME EXPO THIS YEAR. I don't have too much information on it but I do have some exciting things I will be bringing to it that people are looking forward to which you can see below.
Future Cosplay Plans
Con season for me ends with Anime Expo because of my Winter graduation and needing to bulk up my portfolio. I will probably still do a few shoots from time to time, but nothing new made until the end of the December after that. But Piggy, what are you gonna work on then before that? Well here's what I would like to make for AX...
Milk (Nyoro Rock)-Pop'n Music
Kaere Kimura- Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Black Hanekawa (Kitty Jammies)- Bakemonogatari
And something a lot of people have been asking me to do....
Chun Li (Alt Outfit)-Super Street Fighter 4
I'm fairly certain all of those will get done in time for AX and I'm excited to work on them!!! If you do want to see regular updates and progress from that I put all of it on my facebook page. So please like if you want to! [link]
Well that's all for me. So much to do still and I just got back from con! School starts back up this week so I need to clean my house before I die from too much homework, hahaha. Peace out you all and thank you for continuing to watch me even through my long absences.
