I finally am getting around to updating this.
I received a phone call from my building administrator earlier this month letting me know that they transferred both my assistants to other buildings in the district. They cut one of the assistant jobs and had not hired someone yet for the remaining assistant job. Sooo basically I have no employees.
While it has been a stressful 3 years with one assistant or another, maybe this will be a fresh start... if the HR office doesn't give me someone completely wackadoo with a complex because their boss (me) is much younger than they are. Job stress is part of life I guess.
In the meantime, I completely gutted my kitchen and am renovating it with my father's help for part of it - beyond that, I've got a contractor. I'm finding it difficult to make adult decisions when the kitchen that was there was so "special" I really don't care what they put in. Nothing can be that bad. When shopping around for countertop, cupboards, etc. the people are always expecting me to have a huge list of demands, but I don't. My list is just, "Can this not look and be terrible?" or "I just want it to flow with everything." No demands for special features etc. I just want a more functional kitchen that isn't ugly and outdated.
TRANSITIONING TO COSPLAY TALK
Anyway, that's where most of my money is tied up these days so I've dramatically scaled back on cosplay stuff. I am not retiring, I'm just allowing myself to focus in on specialized projects that mean much more to me. Yes, I will probably miss out on Random Cosplay Group #562352512123 but oh well. I only want to be in groups I can truly enjoy being in sans other people's drama, people flaking out, etc. Solo cosplay doesn't bother me, I feel I've been alone for years so whatever.
The only con planned for the remainder of 2015 is AnimeUSA. It's such an enjoyable chill con and lots of good food around the hotel. These are things I demand. Hahah.
Still trying to thin out my costumes. 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)
- 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)
If you need some custom jewelry or accessories for daily/special wear or cosplay, let me know. I always like doing this type of commission. Prices vary by job complexity + secure shipping to your location. Don't hesitate to ask.
I have nendos, figures listed along with manga, doujinshi, makeup, circle lenses, cosplay accessories, wigs, Tales of merchandise, etc.
