LOL Hello November almost December

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 29, 2014, 8:23 PM


:star: Oh me! Oh life! :star:
Time is flying this year.

As you might have guessed, I finished my Astrid costume and did a photoshoot with it. I need to go back and redo a few things but overall it was as expected. I entered it into the Hall Cosplay contest at AnimeUSA and won Best of Friday. That was a big surprise as there were so many amazing entries and compared to theirs, my costume looked so simple and plain. However, I was meticulous, as always, so perhaps that gave me a boost.

Nothing much amazing has happened in the meantime besides my quarterly sinus infection [right on schedule]. I was able to take part in a grant to my district allowing me and 18 others to go to an edu-tech conference which was inspiring as well as a bit frustrating as many of these  awesome presenters had a lot more money to deal with to get their classrooms and learning spaces teched up to the max. Oh well, I generally can find a way to work within my means so I hopefully can put some of what I learned to use on the shoestring budget that I get. 

Anyway, survived Thanksgiving with the family and have behaved during Black Friday online sales. I doubt I'll do much shopping on Cyber Monday but we'll see. I am almost done Christmas shopping, whoop whoop. I hate going out to stores this time of year. How about you guys? Do you love the atmosphere and shopping killer deals in person or are you an online-only kind of shopper?


:star: COSTUME PLANS :star:
As for my 2015 lineup of costumes: I'll be making an Elsa dress for my niece's birthday gift. 
For myself:
- Toothiana 
- Sailor Pluto
- actually finish Legolas
- actually finish Baroness
- Martel (I think)
That's all I've got for now....


:star: SELLING THINGS :star:
I need to get a jump on spring cleaning this year. I am selling my costumes that I do not wear anymore. Send a note if interested. Prices negotiable. What's not negotiable is priority mail shipping. I require this because it is fast, secure, and trackable. 
- Wei Zhijun (Darker than Black)
- Ciel Phantomhive (Kuroshitsuji)
- Drocell Cainz default, Visual Kei, and sushi chef costumes (Kuroshitsuji)
- Prince Cornelius (Odin Sphere)
- King Richard (Tales of Graces f)
- Howl default and disguise costumes (Howl's Moving Castle)


:star: UNRELATED BUT AWESOME :star:
Hey Frozen fans, if you've been staring down that Elsa nendo, they just recently opened preorders for the figure, due out in May 2015.

The article here will give you more photos of the prototype figure and let you know where you can preorder.

:star: FUN FUN FUN! :star:
So guys, as a token of my appreciation for all the support through the years, whether people wandered here for artwork or costumes, I would like to do a giveaway of some sort. What kind of things would be cool to get? I have some ideas which are more cosplay-relevant but would love to hear from you too. 

Anyway, take care of yourselves this winter and holiday season. Be good to yourself and others. Life is short, don't sweat the small stuff. Right? Right. 

May the Schwartz be with you.

I'm sorry this has been bothering me o-o but that con in March. Did it happen to be like the weekend of March 8th? At a certain school with ridiculous rules and kind of a rude staff this year? I don't wanna name it. But I think I recall you as being Elsa winning the cosplay contest o-o you're outfit was gorgeous in person if that was you o-o
You look so familiar tho o-o
Not to be a creeper either o-o 
And I saw your Elsa pics in the New York Cosplay group so……….
I really think it's you I saw at that particular con who won the contest xD

I didn't think my work nor I, myself, were really recognizable in a sea of cosplayers but yes on all accounts and I appreciate your comment!

Hopefully you managed to have a decent time at the con? The weather this year certainly put a damper on things. My friends and I always say we're not going back again but then we feel strangely obligated to attend because we don't have to travel far to get to it. LOL

The rude staff kind of put a damper on things for me. I was trying to look for the cosplay contest walk-ons sign ups and no one knew where they were >.< also the friday night pre-reg they kicked all us cosplayers out and it was just rude :/ and also the fact that the stupid peace ties for weapon prop check I forget what they're called they ruined the paint job on my staff >.< but overall it was a decent con and I had fun >.< and yes it is very close to me too and all my friends go to it. So I will be returning next year too just not going full out for it >.>

Your Elsa cosplay was gorgeous tho! When I saw you walk up onto the stage ^-^

Ah, I can see how that would affect your time. I'm always wary of bringing "weapon" props to a campus con simply because the law says no weapons on school grounds, even though it's a prop it feels weird. Additionally, you know they will peace bond everything possible with zip ties and not everyone will zip them loosely enough to not damage the prop or paint job. I just like to avoid the situation completely and pick costumes that don't involve a weapon prop.

As to pre-reg, it probably wasn't personal or to target cosplayers unless they were only kicking out the cosplayers/your group while everyone else was allowed to hang around. I have never done a badge pickup at this con so I cannot speak to the intricacies of it, but even many big cons like Otakon expect you to get your badge and leave immediately especially as there is no programming.

But yes, for this con in particular, I think simpler costumes are the way to go. There are so many people there too and you do not want to wear something huge that will get damaged easily. I wore my Jack Frost costume last year and had a good time.

Nah, I am just curious to find out what people like. The things I've made and like generally seem to be unpopular with others hahaha.
