If you’ve ever wondered what conventions I’ll be at this year, or what I’m currently working on, you can find that under the new section ‘Upcoming Events & Costumes’.
There are 21 new prints available for purchase, including the photos above, and including 5 new costumes that didn’t have prints available before. Half of the proceeds go towards assisting me with the purchase of costuming goods, such as fabric, wigs, sewing notions, sculpting materials, etc. The other half will be donated to The Hero Initiative, in an effort to give back to the creators who have inspired me.
I apologize for the blatant advertisement in the center there, but I’m tired of people deleting everything I’ve written when it’s reblogged. So there! You can’t delete that!
Please go check it out, and spread the word around! Thank you!
Here are the scant few new costumes (and an oldie but goodie) I made this year. 2012 has been a helluva year. Due to personal troubles, costuming unfortunately had to take the back burner more often than I would have liked. I’m looking forward to making up for what I missed out on in 2013!
Plans are already being made regarding costumes and conventions for 2013, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a very promising year. Prospective costumes include: Mad Moxxie (BL2), Diva Plavalaguna, Promethea (the first comics I ever got my hands on!), and Witchblade, Ame-Comi Power Girl, and Risti (Queen’s Blade) are still on the docket. I’ll make a post of conventions once I have things a little more set in stone, and once a few cons confirm that I’ll be their guest!
A question I’m asked a lot is ‘What’s your favorite costume to wear?’ and I always flounder. It changes with my mood. Every costume I’ve created, I do it because I love the character and admire their qualities - their style, their attitude, their confidence, their strength. They’re like a piece to my puzzle, and when it snaps into place, I feel emboldened. I feel like I’ve leveled up.
Today is a Jessica Rabbit day. I need a little of this feeling right now.
