LOL March

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 20, 2014, 9:41 PM


February and March have been quite the whirlwind.

Katsucon was fun, you know, once I got there. Half of the state of PA decided to be obnoxious with weather when I was driving down and literally 20 miles from the Gaylord, one of my tires blew out. The weather already caused a delay and the tire set me back an additional hour. So it went from a 10-11pm arrival to 3:30 arrival. That sucked. The con was fun and I did get to hang out with a lot of people, wore all my costumes, and generally had a good and relaxing time. I was able to debut my Elsa costume and wore Lon'qu 2 days, Jack Frost, Schala, and Armin once. Not bad. I didn't feel I overpacked at all.

The day I returned from Katsucon, I worked on painting my kitchen cupboards (oh, how domestic) with help from Mama Bear (mum). The kitchen in my house is really small and the previous owners had painted them black. I changed them to a nice colonial shade of green since the house IS technically colonial style. So that's one relatively cheap improvement I knocked out over the course of a week.

I attended a local con in the early part of the month with friends. It was a bit of a cluster, but I wanted to try entering the costume contest and ended up placing first. Can't complain about that but we won't be back. It was the earliest we've ever been to this con so it was cold and just bleh overall. I was glad that my friends stuck around and supported me for the contest though. Never again though, bros.

This past weekend I was at Aselia Con aka Tales Con. I was invited as a guest. That was probably the smallest event I have ever attended but arguably one of the most enjoyable. Everyone was friendly and the cozy atmosphere made it easy to chill and meet new people. I had a panel which I am pretty sure befuddled the people in there, sorry guys. I didn't know how to scale the panel, had no idea what to expect, and realized it was way hardcore and started ditching slides last minute. I may put some of the content on Genesis in case people want to refer to it but if I do another panel there, I will plan it to be way more interactive. I will also avoid American Airlines if I can help it. Sadly it's the only airline servicing our local airport in town, literally 4 miles from my house with free parking. If I want more choices, I have to drive 65 miles to the bigger airport which has paid garage parking. First world decision-making problems, man.

Anyway, as for the rest of the year: I have to survive work until the end of June, then it's break. I don't think I will attend Otakon anymore, too hot, too much of a cluster. The next con I will go to is AnimeUSA. My time will be dedicated to finishing up "bag costumes" (re: unfinished costumes in bags), doing outdoorsy stuff when the summer arrives, and doing more private shoots with photographers as opposed to going to cons. My house = a metroid, sucking funds out of my wallet so I need to control spending and travels.

I will probably be offering more small commissions slots so if interested, let me know. Right now I am waiting on a wig I ordered for an Elsa wig commission and am drafting patterns for Milla Maxwell. They should be wrapped up by mid-April at the latest so time slots will be advertised around the,

Anyway... that's what I'm doing with my life at this point. I'm trying not to let age, cynicism, or the bastards drag me down. LOL

I'm doing a scholarship thing where I need to make a collage of things that inspire me... so can I use one of your photos?

:iconstealthos-aurion:
Um, I suppose so. What one were you thinking of using?

These are my two favorites. You sound reluctant?

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.

And no, I am not in any FB groups for Fire Emblem, didn't know they existed actually.

We're all pretty chill and are of all levels of cosplays (with the mindset that everybody is forever learning from each other!).

Thank you very much. The only thing I should've done to make it more epic was sneak in a nap. LOL :D
