I can’t believe 2014 is already halfway over! Though this is sadly my first front page post this year, I have been keeping my costume pages updated and if you ever want to see more frequent updates from me, please check out my facebook page!
In January I got to be part of a product shoot for YayaHan.com, modeling some of the pony products that they offer. If you watch Heroes of Cosplay on the SyFy channel, you may have even seen some footage from that shoot!
January also brought a lot of snow to the Atlanta area, which I of course had to take advantage of since it’s a rare occurrence! I had been waiting for appropriate settings to wear my Game of Thrones Ygritte costume and Wreck-It Ralph Adorabeezle for a long time and this proved to be the perfect opportunity!
Despite snowstorms closing down roads and airports, I managed to make it Katsucon again this year! I only had one new costume to debut, which was Hikari from Mawaru Penguindrum, but I rewore some of my favorites and got a bunch of great new photos!
I also went to Jordancon again this year, though I didn’t make anything new this time around and just wore Min again. The convention was wonderful though and I plan on becoming a regular. In fact, next year I’m considering making a costume from Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive, which I’m very excited about!
Free Comicbook Day in May gave me an opportunity to wear my Jesse Quick costume again and hang out with some fellow comic lovers. Teahouse Comics is my absolute favorite comic shop! I was asked to do a interview about Free Comic Book Day, which you can read here if you’re interested!
Momocon was fantastic this year as well! I spent months working on two new elaborate costumes for this convention: Mockingjay Katniss and Anna from Frozen! All I can say about Anna is that I don’t want to do any more hand embroidery for a very long time, but I have gotten to wear her to a couple birthday parties, which has been a ton of fun! My favorite part about my Katniss costume was getting to wear it in a location where the movie was actually filmed. It was also my first time making and wearing wings, which was a great new experience.
This coming weekend I will be reuniting with Meru and Tham to do a series of Kamikaze Kiss photoshoots with the help of BentPic5 as our photographer. I can’t wait! I also have another Suikoden photoshoot planned for the summer and some exciting costumes to work on for DragonCon and AWA. 2014 is panning out to be a big year for me! Thank you, as always, for following my work!
