I managed to bungle my costume journal here- so any tutorials and convention links are rather… broken. I’m pretty sure I have backups saved somewhere and will be attempting to repair the damage over the next couple of days. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Meanwhile, I had a fabulous time at a shoot with lots of friends down in New York City over the weekend and returned home to find a DD over on DeviantArt – thank you so much! :O

I was honored to be asked to take part in ‘Cosplay for a Cause’ – a project full of never before seen photos of cosplayers and illustrations from several professional comic book artists. All proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist in Japan’s Disaster relief aid. For lots more information and ordering, check out the site: CosplayforaCause.com
Seriously, it’s cool stuff.

Happy Holidays! As with all of my updates lately – I haven’t really done much cosplay-wise. Though Kelly made a outfit based on the Tonner Dolls (Ghost of Christmas Future) and let me do her makeup and take some pictures which was extremely fun. I still have an unhealthy number of unfinished costumes which continue to stare mournfully at me every time I enter the workroom. I feel like I’ve learned a lot more about photo stuff in the past year that I haven’t really had a chance to incorporate in my own cosplay photos which… is a bit annoying. That, combined with my newly cleaned work area and swanky new toys (camera accessories) may finally drive me to finish some of this crap and get some new photos. …or maybe I’ll just have more tea and watch movies with Kelly. We’ll see.
While I don’t usually post about bits in zines, etc. I’m making an exception here. Mechademia is a very cool publication put out by the University of Minnesota Press, and they did a piece about cosplay photography which they were kind enough to include me in! Thank you so much Eron, Christopher, and Jenny (though none of you are likely to ever see this post!). I’m really honored to have my work included and reviewed so highly! @_@ Mechademia 5: Fanthropologies is available here.

I’m selling Sailor V – ! I have no intention of wearing her again and rather than take up space in my closet I’d like to see her go to someone who wants to wear her.
eBay listing is > here <

I’m giving the site an overhaul/redesign so that I can add a bunch of new stuff (about time!) but it’s probably going to take me a while – not like that’s anything new. I just want to say that I haven’t vanished off the face of the earth internet.

Oh man I typed this long paragraph of babble about plans for ’09 but it sounded ridiculous. So I’ll just say that I’m cutting back on conventions and will probably only be going to one or two this year. I will continue to cosplay because I love sewing, dressing up, taking pictures, and being a goon in costume with friends. So if you only know me through my website, nothing’s really going to change- but if we hang out a lot at cons, then I’m sorry but I won’t be around as much.
I do have a few projects planned for this year that I’m really excited about, but it would be silly of me to talk about them considering how long it takes me to get photos of things/my short attention span.
So enough rambling, Happy New Year!
