Sorry for the lack of regular updates, my dear peeps!! It's so much easier for me to throw something up on Facebook and Twitter from my phone while I'm traveling, and boy have I been traveling a lot. Please LIKE my Facebook Page for daily photo updates, and Twitter for daily musings. I am also creating a corset giveaway on Facebook when I reach 50,000 Likes so please support that goal for a chance to win free prints, t-shirts, calendars, posters, cosplay accessories, and a corset made by me!!
I will make a conscious effort to update more often and today am able to show you my new Chun Li costume gallery with lots of photos and construction notes!
All in all, July was a very successful and exhausting month for me, and I am very happy to take today off to veg on the couch, watch Marvel Studios movies on Netflix, and update my website. Anime Expo, San Diego Comic Con and Otakon, one after another with a couple of big photoshoots thrown inbetween. I certainly had my hands full. But I am absolutely happy as a clam, having had the chance to see my far away friends, meet new friends, and cosplay at three of the largest geek-events of the country. Otakon surprised the heck out of me, not just with the success my exhibitor booth had, but also the overwhelming amount of incredibly kind people who came to talk to me, purchase a print and/or calendar, and take a photo with me. I really felt a strong connection with so many of you and thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to walk over to my booth and speak to me. Meeting like-minded creative passionate people is my favorite part about cosplaying and conventions.
For now I have a small break at home, but I will not be resting on my laurels. I have lots of new costumes to make for Dragoncon and the International Cosplay Day in Singaore in August! I am traveling to Manila, Philippines, to do an exciting photoshoot with photographer Jay Tablante, then hopping over to Singapore to be a Guest at the ICDS! After my return it's time for my favorite con of the year, Dragoncon, where I will be signing calendars and merchandize at my dealer room booth G13 (in lowest level dealer hall).
