My deviantART Story

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 9, 2014, 12:07 PM


In light of DA's 14th year, I suppose I too can do some reflection on my hilariously misguided journey in sharing art and work online.

Back in the day, when art sharing on the internet was but a mere babe, I was fairly active on Elfwood. After a while, I grew tired of their ticket system and longed for some more freedom, more ownership over the look of the page, over what I could post and delete at will, and commenting and replying functions. In 2004ish, I ended up deleting my Elfwood accounts (one for original, one for fanart) and moved some stuff here.  I then dabbled more with random original artwork and some fanart 
as I went into my first grad program in art. I drew crackart as a way to cope with stress and to horrify and amuse the masses. Why not?

Later, I would become fascinated by people's use and abuse of watermarks and decided to place them in the most obnoxious places, for my own amusement. There were pieces I actually tried on too. So it wasn't all crack art lulz... but a lot of it was.

Sheeta from Laputa by Stealthos-Aurion The Final Countdown to dooooom by Stealthos-Aurion ToS: Prozac Elves love Xmas by Stealthos-Aurion ToS: Kratos - Get yer sexy on by Stealthos-Aurion Metropolis: Rock by Stealthos-Aurion 

ToA: The Colonel by Stealthos-Aurion Devil May Cry - Dante, Virgil by Stealthos-Aurion 

After finishing my first grad program, I was burnt out on art though. I decided to put more creative energy into cosplay. I learned to sew in 1996 and sewed formal gowns for myself during high school so costumes were not a far cry from that. What strted as a casual interest soon became something of the, "Can't stop, won't stop" variety. Cosplay also provided a nice distraction from actual real life stuff as I entered my second graduate program, this one in the more practical field of education.  That said, I would like to think my interests and portfolio are diverse. I certainly have made a lot of costumes... yikes.

My Mercenaries
Kratos at AUSA by Stealthos-Aurion ToX Cos: Alvin ver. 2.0 by Stealthos-Aurion Fire Emblem: Awakening - Lon'qu 2 by Stealthos-Aurion ... and they all have dark hair, I'm sensing a trend.

My Spirits and Not-humans

A select few friends and watchers even seem to appreciate my lulz. Others seemed too polite to say, "You're weird".
 ToA: Someone needs a hug by Stealthos-Aurion ToS: The classic pose by Stealthos-Aurion RoTG: Ice Kolddd by Stealthos-Aurion  LoZ: I Dropped Something... by Stealthos-Aurion

And sometimes I like to give back to others and make tutorials which tend to be way more popular than anything else I post. LOL I think it's a message.
Tut: HOMEMADE WIG DETANGLER by Stealthos-Aurion The Slightly Manry-ier Makeup Tutorial by Stealthos-Aurion Frozen: Elsa Makeup Tutorial - plain girl's guide by Stealthos-Aurion RoTG TUTORIAL: Separating Staff for Jack Frost v4 by Stealthos-Aurion Wig Mod Tutorial by Stealthos-Aurion Chang pao sewing tutorial by Stealthos-Aurion

All in all, it has been a very pleasant and interesting 10 years for me on Deviantart. I like the features and options the platform provides and feel that continued development will only draw in more users in the future. Keep on, keeping on DA, happy 14th, now just don't turn into a rebellious little punk teenager. JK

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.
