Yo, long time, no talk!
I've got two pieces of good news as well as one piece of bad news. To keep this entry as positive as possible, I'll sandwich the piece of bad news between the pieces of good news.
, who is a fan of my Helena (Tall Oaks) cosplay, gifted me a one-month dA subscription, so I'd like to publicly express my gratitude and thank him for his generosity. It means a lot to me!
In addition, he's commissioned me for a few photos of my Helena (Tall Oaks) in a pose and styling of his choosing. I hope to have them shot and posted soon, along with some Hunnigan photos. (Paige and I have both been very busy, so we unfortunately haven't had time to do a shoot.)
And now for the bad news: I won't be attending Otakon this year like I'd planned. None of my friends can go, so if I went, I'd be footing a giant hotel bill all by myself. Plus, I went one year without friends, and it wasn't any fun.
If I'm going to be burning money, then I want to at least have fun in the process.
So, as hard as it is to skip out on meeting Laura Bailey (who voiced Helena) and getting her autograph, I feel it's the best choice.
Plus, my mom and I are planning a trip to Florida in the fall to see relatives and go to Universal Studios, so it's not like I'm not going to do anything fun this year.
Finally: someone whom I met at Otakon last year (well, technically the year before last) who also really liked my Helena (Tall Oaks) messaged me about doing a, ah, "collaboration," shall we say. I have no idea when the shoot for this "collaboration" will take place as 1) we both have to finish our cosplays for it and 2) we need to figure out when and where we'll do it, but I'm super-excited nonetheless. Like, someone who's been doing cosplays for years liked one of n00b-me's cosplays enough to want to do a photoshoot with me!
I've been posting WIP photos on my Facebook
, if anyone's interested in seeing them.
By the way: I mentioned some time ago that I would post my original writing here. I've decided to post it on my FictionPress instead. Check it out
