Holiday Matsuri!

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 21, 2013, 11:51 AM
Hey everyone!! My next convention is Holiday Matsuri (December 12-14) here in Orlando!

I am SO excited to also announce that I will be a guest at the con!! Ahhhhh! I am SO honored and excited but also still in shock haha! I will be doing lots of events at the con too, so it will be a busy weekend for sure!

On that note, here is my list of costumes I think I will be wearing! Plus I will be bringing a few extras incase I want to change or shoot or what not!

:bulletwhite: FRIDAY :bulletwhite:

Friday I know I am particpating in the opening ceremonies! This is the one day I'm still not really sure what I am going to wear! At this point it is mostly what I get done in time. I am REALLY hoping to do a Sheryl Nome costume, but we will see! If not I will just wear one of my backups :)

:bulletwhite: SATURDAY :bulletwhite:

Saturday I am SUPER busy but that is super awesome! I will be wearing Human Luna and couldn't be more excited! I am really hoping to get lots of pictures of her before everything gets crazy!

:bulletwhite: SUNDAY :bulletwhite:

And for Sunday I am pretty sure I will be wearing Elizabeth! Hoping to get one of her other outfits done (because now I am hooked lol!) but if not Burial at Sea it is!

:Bulletred: BACK UP COSTUMES :bulletred:

I am hoping to also bring:
-Sailor Uranus/Jupiter
-Burial at Sea Elizabeth
-Utena



SO!! Who else is going to Holiday Matsuri? What are you wearing? What events are you going to / looking forward to? :D

AFO, Dragon*Con, and Other Cosplay Stuff!

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 15, 2013, 3:57 PM
Oh wow! I can't believe AFO is already here! I will not be going tomorrow, but I will be there Saturday and Sunday! :D I'm honestly not 100% sure what I will be wearing but it looks like my FemShep dress and HOPEFULLY Tali if she gets done! If not maybe Sailor Uranus? Great news though, I will be part of the "Cosplay Showcase" panel on Friday! If you're going to AFO please come and check it out! :D

Dragon*Con is coming up at the end of the month as well! Ah! I'm bringing quite a few things but right now its looking like my new Catwoman, pinup! Juliet Starling, Cammy White, Airi (from Queen's Blade), and Tali! Im sure I will bring stuff like FemShep, Miranda, and Black Canary....well see! I will update this closer to the con! :)

In other news I am also working on Super Sailor Jupiter, Sayaka Miki, and Sheryl Nome! (Maybe Holiday Matsuri??)

And finally I just wanted to list some shoots I hope to do (be it at a con or outside of one) before the end of 2013!

-Batwoman and Alice, preferably together (be it both me or me and someone who looks like me haha)
-FemShep (maybe with some classy setting or such...since it is her dress! Im looking at you classy sushi bars!)
-Original Pin Up Catwoman
-Death
-Pinup!/ Rockabilly! Juliet Starling (I still need her chainsaw though!)
-Cammy White
-Mary Marvel
-Sayaka
-Sheryl Nome
-Sailor Jupiter
-Tali

Soooooo pretty much everything haha! Some old, some new, but I would LOVE to have just solid, high quality (non hallway) pictures of these! -crosses fingers-

I hope to see you guys at AFO, D*C, or Holiday Matsuri even! :D

Metrocon 2013!!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 22, 2013, 7:01 AM
Hey everyone! :wave:

Supercon has come and gone! It was a blast! I really loved getting to wear Miranda out and about, and Utena as well! Sadly I didn't get a chance to wear Cammy. Honestly this year Supercon was just crowded to the point of being uncomfortable and making it hard to have fun/do the things you wanted to do. Thankfully I got to see a lot of people and really in the end that's my favorite part of the con! Plus I got to talk/hang out with some people I never get to really see so that was awesome too! :D

Anyways onto Metrocon this weekend! I will only be going Saturday and Sunday though! Here are my plans:

:bulletred: Saturday :bulletred:

Saturday I haven't decided if I will be wearing Super Sailor Uranus or Miranda Lawson! I also miiiiiight have my FemShep dress done (Ive been working on it for Dragon*Con) so I might just wear that since its comfy and cool for the summer! Just hanging out today, maybe doing some shopping in the artist's alley (my favorite part of any con!)

:bulletred: Sunday :bulletred:

Sunday I am wearing Odette! Princess Tutu again! I am SO excited to wear this! I have made various adjustments / improvements to it so that is exciting too! I am considering entering the costume contest with this (since I wanted to enter her at megacon but never got the chance to) but Im not sure! Contests make me so nervous and because of that I freeze up in prejudging and feel like I do a terrible job presenting my costume... :< ah well!


ANYWAYS! Who else is going to Metro?! I haven't been since 2010 (where my Marluxia and Black Rock Shooter photos are from!) so it will be interesting! I'm mostly just excited to rewear some cosplays I love! :heart: I hope to see a lot of you there! :)

SUPERCON 2013 PLANS!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 4, 2013, 8:18 AM
Wow way for it to already be SuperCon and heres me finishing cosplays and just now posting it lol! Anyways Im not down in Miami yet, because being the 4th of July Im spending it with family! :D Speaking of, Happy 4th of July to all my USA friends!!!! If you're out of the states, just happy July/Summer/day! ;) 

Anyways here are my cosplay plans for SuperCon!!

:bulletred: Friday :bulletred:

Miranda Lawson from Mass Effect! I cannot wait to wear her! I "test" wore her when I was helping out at my good friend Wreck'd Studios prop/armor booth at CEO 2013! (Which was a blast btw!). I've made a lot of upgrades to her from last weekend already like adding details to her neckpiece, belt, and making boot extensions! Im really proud of those btw, I made them completely separate so I didn't have to ruin a good pair of pricey boots but if I do say so myself they look pretty seamless on :3 When I upload some pictures of her I'll put up more construction notes (like how the suit was bought from Ana Aesthetic but everything I made/adjusted/etc etc and wig notes!) I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS. Tali is still in progress btw haha! 

:bulletwhite: Saturday :bulletwhite:

Utena from Revolutionary Girl Utena! Im so pumped for this! She is a character I have just loved forever, and have wanted to cosplay forever, and so glad I finally am! Even better news is the lovely VertigoVendetta is being Anthy! Ahhhhhh! :heart: I know I keep saying it, but I can't wait! 

:bulletred: Sunday :bulletred:

Cammy White from Street Fighter! I've been working on her for awhile, and while Im not 100% happy with the gauntlets, I want to wear her soooo bad that I just will lol! Kinda nervous, but hey, what better place to wear a thong leotard than Miami haha. 

:star: I also am having two seperate shoots from those cosplays Friday night and Saturday/Sunday morning! I am not allowed to say much about about the morning shoots, but its definetly something different for me and I'm excited! Friday night I am shooting with SuperHero photography by Adam Jay again (Justice league shoot/Zatanna, some catwoman ones) to revisit his infamous Venom shoot! Can't wait! Once again something new and different for me, but I think it will be awesome! :star:


I'm very excited! I am hoping everything goes well and I will have a lot of new pictures to share with everyone since I am running out of Sailor Uranus and Aria pictures lol!! Hope to see some of you there! :heart:

1. For each of the first ten people to comment on this journal, I will put their avatar and the three deviations I like most from their gallery on the list! If you would like to suggest your own deviations, feel free to do so.
EDIT: I will do more than 10 :) It might take me a bit to catch up and such but I don't mind doing how ever many comment honestly lol! I love going through galleries and seeing new work to love (or loving ones I've seen all over again!)

Hey guys! I just wanted to write up a little something for Megacon!

Friday I was dressed a Super Sailor Uranus, with some AMAZING other ladies as the other scouts! We were only missing a moon ironically! :iconkapalaka: Kapalaka / Mars set the whole thing up, I want to send her a huge thanks for allowing me to be part of the group! Trying to all meet up was a little crazy, but hey, the important part was is that we all did meet up and it ROCKED! :iconexilefayt: ExileFayt was killing it as Mercury! We go way back but I havent gotten to see her recently and it was so great and hilarious to finally get to hang out/ cosplay together! That girl can make me laugh! :iconhoodedwoman: HoodedWoman and :iconvertigovendetta: VertigoVendetta are two super talented gals that cosplayed Jupiter and Venus respectively and also two ladies I have been wanting to cosplay with for sometime! It was so cool getting to know them more, and actually spending time together! :iconk-chan323: K-chan323 I met for the first time this con! It gets better when you realize that we cosplayed Uranus and Neptune together, which I think most people would expect to know each other haha! But she is a lovely lady who was sooooo easy to talk to and get to know, and Im so happy we did get to meet, because she is a great person! LAST but not least, :iconcosplaycousins: CosplayCousins were also there with Tranquility as Pluto and Hannamaru as Saturn! I was lucky enough to be able to cosplay with them in Otakitty's Mina group but this time I got to spend more time with them, and actually chat with them some and thats another thing Im glad I got to do, they both are just fantastic and I hope we get to cosplay togther/hang out more in the future! PLUS they made my tiara for me so we could match, and brought me a matching star for my choker! We did a group shoot with thirdstop :iconthirdstop:, and also did some pairs/solos with him. AHHHH so excited for the results! We also did an Outer Senshi shoot with :iconmorataya: Morataya later that day, and despite all of us dying from heel pain, I think the shoot went fantastically! God I love Sailor Moon so much and it was just a dream to be a part of a group with such talented ladies I look up to and especially to have a full outers group (I love them!)

Phew so Saturday was crazy! I was Aria T'loak from Mass Effect, and if you know me you know I love Mass Effect to the point of obsession haha! I was and am ecstatic to FINALLY have done a Mass Effect costume, AND one of my alllllll time favorite characters to top that off! Im so happy that Karyna helped me out on this, by motivating me to not give up on the costume no matter HOW nuts the outfit drove me (she was doing Nyreen after all!), and for applying my headpeice and painting me<3 Im so incredibly proud of how this costume came together, and I got to shoot with :iconxinstrumental:xinstrumental who ive wanted to shoot with forever, AND :iconmorataya: Morataya who is easily one of my favorite photographers to shoot with whenever possible. Seriously talented guys here! Favorite photogs, favorite series/character....Im sooooooo pumped to see the results! Anyways, the reception for the costume was overwhelming and I want to thank everyone for being so awesome and friendly. For once I really had the chance to meet a lot of new people, talk shop with some, and talk games with others! OH, and to the group of guys that would scream "DONT FUCK WITH ARIA" or "WHATS THE ONE RULE OF OMEGA?" whenever they saw me.....you guys made my day. Rock on.

So Sunday. Saturday night I had a rooooough night sickness wise, so when it came to wearing a costume, I just didnt want to! BUT :iconlollisarahboo: LolliSarahBoo and I worked super hard to get our Tinkerbell and Rosetta done, and had two shoots scheduled so we wore them for the morning then changed into regular clothes to FINALLY go in the dealers room! (It was my first time the whole weekend! :O) Im glad we did wear them though, the pictures are gorgeous...Im just so sad we didnt get to the big Disney gathering!

OVERALL, it was a great weekend. I got to spend a lot of time with my wifey Sarah which was much needed, and got to become closer with a lot of friends that I dont get to see much. I for once loved every single costume I wore, and was beside myself with how kind everyone was! Plus I got to be a part of some killer groups, and I so hope to be a part of more in the future! (Though us sailor scouts DO have another sailor moon related group planned, and Im soooooooooo excited/nervous for it haha!) I wish I had words to describe how much I NEEDED a great weekend, and how thankful I am for everyone!

OH and get ready for Megacon photospam once I get them! I have my Rosetta pics from both shoots, and will be spreading those out. And from what Ive seen from around the con / hallway photos, Im going to be in love with my Sailor Uranus and Aria pics as well! EEEEEEEE cant wait!! :heart:

I might have to give in and get a premium membership again....ugh the ads are killing me. They block a lot of important buttons/links so I cant see or press them without pressing the add and it is driving me nuuuuuuuuuts.

Updates and Megacon Plans! :)

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 27, 2012, 3:28 PM
Hey everyone! Slowly but surely I have been uploading a few extra pictures I have of newer costumes, but sadly I have run out of them, and don't have anything new to show! I am trying to get some shoots scheduled for Batwoman (in a cool urban setting), Princess Tutu (Hopefully in a really elegant / maybe even a stage to get some real dance shots done!), and Catwoman (also in a cool setting to do some more acrobatic shots!) so hopefully that will be done before Megacon comes up!!

Speaking of Megacon, I am looking at having Super S Sailor Uranus done, Aria T'loak from Mass Effect (with Karyna as Nyreen Kandros, hnnnng), and either Rosetta or Cinderella done for the Disney gathering!! No progress to show yet, but I am hoping on having some to show for Aria soon!

Sooooo. How have you all been doing? I hope everyone had a lovely winter holidays! And got everything you wanted! I know I did! (well besides having my costumes magically done haha!)

Hmmmm I might go to Anime Day Orlando just to be able to dress up and walk around! I would say to take some photos too but after the interesting experience of not being allowed to take pictures outside / in the hotel Im actually starting to second guess even going haha! If I did go I would wear Sailor Uranus or even Crimson Camellia Meiko!

Well, thats enough rambling!

Hey there everyone!

I know I've posted about this once or twice before but to all the new watchers and ones that missed it... PLEASE go "like" my facebook page. I promise you there are a lot more pictures there and some that will most likely never be posted here!! I bug you all about this because I feel bad that I don't update dA as much as I should/with all the pictures from shoots!

So if you could just do that, that would be great! If not, hey, I'm still trying to keep this up to date! (But no promises! ;) )

HERE IS THE LINK

Hey there everyone! This is just a bit of an update on what costumes are coming along for the upcoming cons the rest of 2012! But first some life stuff!

First off, ignore the ugly journal! My subscription ran out again (/sob!!) and I miss my pretty N7 journal! But ah well!

Second, life! Last friday I went to an audition (if you didn't know, I dance! And have been dancing since age 2!) and actually made it all the way! I got the first call on Monday that I was a match but now Im waiting for the second call when a position opens up! I should expect it any time now to six months at the longest! Ah!!! I'm so nervous, I want this job more than ANYTHING! But due to the company and how seriously they take information being posted about their auditions/casting I can't say any more to be safe! I refuse to do anything to jeopardize this opportunity! (Now back to nervously awaiting a call every morning!!! :cry:)

And lastly, school! I'll be starting school back in the spring (or possibly summer) so hopefully I get the job because I am boooooored!

I need to run an idea by you all!! D: Plus update

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 5, 2012, 1:06 PM
First things first: I need to run an idea by everyone. Recently it was brought to my attention that ShadoCon is having a "Talent search" contest (www.shadocon.com/control.cfm?I… and I had this idea....since Ive been doing ballet for 13 years now....why not do a little Princess Tutu dance? Im considering doing this classically, as in either her first solo or the "dying swan" solo (with small variations), or a more diverse and personal take on it. (Purely my own choreography and this cool remix of swan lake I have). As much as I would love to do it en pointe, since I dont know the stage/material I feel more comfortable doing it in regular ballet shoes.

But here are my concerns:
• Should I even attempt this?
• I dont know the stage.....will this still work/ be a good idea is the stage is either built or small? (Ive dances on small stages before and I can dance "under myself" but Im afraid that it won't translate well)
• Do you think this idea has good crowd appeal?
And the such.

Please please PLEASE leave your thoughts and ideas and even suggestions for me D:

:star: :star: :star:

I would love to have a premium dA account, just so I could finally change my name from Eva-no-Justu to my more used and common name of Alouette Cosplay.

I might give in just for that, and for my N7 journal skin back. :(

Megacon 2012! + Other cons for 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 30, 2012, 9:18 PM
Okay! Heres my cosplay plans for Megacon 2012!!

:bulletred: Friday -- Odette Ver. Princess Tutu
:bulletred: Saturday -- New52 Catwoman
:bulletred: Sunday -- Still wondering! Might repeat tutu or catwoman, or wear The Bride from Kill Bill or Mami. Depends!

Other con wise Im really only planning on AFO and D*C. AFO because its really tradition at this point and holds a sentimental spot in my heart, and D*C because it is literally the best con Ive ever went to,a dn greatly enjoy it! I might try and make it to SuperCon as well.

I usually make a point and try and make it to as many cons as possible, but I don't think thats what Ill be dong this year. Ill be sticking to the big hitters I enjoy (Mega and D*C) and those that are just plan sentimental (AFO). I really wish I could attend NYCC this year but I just don't think that will happen. Some day it will though!

I also have a bad habit of wanting to get a lot of costumes done per year, and realized that I don't re-wear a lot of costumes and thats just a huge waste. So Im only doing to do costumes that really mean something to me and I can be truly passionate and proud about.... which is what I should of been doing from the very start.

For example all I really see myself doing is Inori from Guilty Gear, one or two video game cosplays, and a lot of comic cosplays such as Batwoman and Dawn. Comics are my true passion, they have been since childhood and comic cosplays are really what bring me the most joy and bring me closer to a community I feel more at home with.

Another part on my cut back is health issues. Im dealing with a lot, that just seem to get worse. I don't want to get into it because its really something I rather not talk about or post on the internet because hey its my health and its personal and that whole what not. I will say though that I do have chronic disease that is making me slowly go deaf. Ive lost about 80% of my hearing already in one ear which (this may sound silly) but is making me even more of a shy and socially reclused person. I think its because I get embarrassed that I cant hear/ understand people most of the time and get embarrassed explaining it, and that I feel bad about it as well.

It makes me really nervous for conventions. Not only does loud settings cause physical pain, but obviously a big part of them is interacting with others and I really would rather not seem distant or bitchy to others if I "ignore" them cause I cant hear them or come off as distant or cold in conversation. Its my natural habit to nod and agree in conversation if I miss a part of it because I get embarrassed about asking someone to repeat what they said, because usually I still cant understand it. Plus I have other things going on / side affects to medications that make me fatigued and easily tired a lot. Which also makes cons hard.

So the anxiety about social situations and conventions is making me even more nervous. But at the same time I get so excited with them. I LOVE cosplaying, I LOVE seeing so much other cosplays, I LOVE the opportunity to meet new people (famous or not!) and I LOVE sharing my hobby and passions with others that feel the same. I obviously don't want to give up cosplay and conventions but its getting hard to stay enchanted with it when it becomes more and more of a physical struggle for me.

Okay wow.
This turned into a huge rant / whine. Im sorry for you that had to read that but I needed that catharsis! Now that thats out, Its time for me to suck it up and solider on!

Hope to see some of you guys at Megacon! if youre going comment and tell me what youre wearing! Hopefully we can meet up! :D

Commissions? Addressing the Question!

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 8, 2012, 1:41 PM
Hi there everyone!

Ive gotten a lot of questions recently about commissions and if I take them. Here's the simple answer YES I DO buuuut there is more! Here is the breakdown:

I DO TAKE:

:bulletgreen: Simple wig stylings
:bulletgreen: Accessories such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings, beading etc.
:bulletgreen: And most importantly: RHINESTONING! Now, It may seem like a small niche but not many people know how to properly rhinestone with the correct glues/techniques and do it cleanly! Plus ordering rhinestones can not only be expensive, but tricky for size and color! Not many people know the difference between AB or plain!! Plus I have ways of getting them cheaper and in bulk! A good example is my amber sweet bra! :P

I DON'T TAKE:

:bulletred: Full or partial costumes! I like sewing with the person right there with me and don't feel comfortable with my skill set yet to sew for others. Plus, time is always in a crunch for me! So just out of interest for my sanity and a good finished product, I wont be taking that kind of commission on for awhile!
:bulletred: COMPLICATED wigs. Same reason as above!

I will be uploading pictures soon of examples of rhinestoning (such as my Princess Tutu Tiaras!) but the Amber Sweet bra (and corset!) are very good examples that are already posted!

Questions or Inquiries? Just note me! :D

:star: ALSO HERE IS MY MEGACON 2012 PLANS: :star:

:bulletwhite: Friday ~ Odette Princess Tutu - (Princess Tutu)
:bulletwhite: Saturday ~ New 52 Catwoman - (DC Comics)
:bulletwhite: Sunday ~ ???

Hope to see you guys there! :)
