I just wanted to write a little update on my current photoshoot, costume and convention plans. It's about time to push back that really long con report about Otakuthon. XD
I actually don't have all that much to write. Things have been pretty quiet Cosplay wise lately. I haven't been working on any costumes since Princess Peach in the summer. I enrolled in a beginners driving class a few weeks ago and I'm in the middle of my in-class lessons. The lessons include little assignments and tests in class so that has been keeping me busy. I haven't even had a single in-car lesson yet, though, so practicing is going to keep me busy well into November.
Over the last couple of months I've been trying to think of costume ideas and things I want to work on, but I haven't found inspiration to work on anything that catches my fancy. I'll probably give up on getting anything new done this year, but hopefully over the Christmas season I can get started on a costume. I still have to wear and get photos of my Super Sailor Chibi Moon costume that I got from Ammie and I'm still hoping to commission her to make me a Dilandau costume for AN next year. Other than that, I'm not really sure. I am debating buying an outfit for Halloween. Just a silly costume idea, but it won't be something I make myself. I'll keep on thinking about new costume ideas for 2014. I would like to sew again sometime soon.
In terms of cons for 2014, I'm actually still on the fence about things. I'm done with cons for 2013 since I'm not going to Youmacon after all. Anime North is the only con I have pinned down for sure. Otakuthon and Con-G are definitely out. I might see about travelling with some of my friends to an American con, but I'm really up in the air about what I can attend. I'm hoping to move out and change jobs next year so I have a lot of different factors to consider before I pick any cons to attend.
I did participate in a couple of fall photoshoots last weekend. It's been quite a while since I last participated in a photoshoot outside of a con. I worked with my friend Stillvisions and I shot my RE4 Ashley costume with my friend The Letter Jay as Leon. Later on that same day I participated in 2 shoots of my Sam costume from Trick 'r Treat. This time it was with my awesome friend Ammie who Cosplayed Laurie. :3 I can't wait to see how the photos turned out! I really appreciate Stillvisions working with us.
I'm not sure if I'll shoot again this fall. I would like to get some shots of my Halloween summer dress if that's possible, but we'll see. I'm just trying to soak up the season. I love the month of October. <3
