Just wanted to make a quick update to let everyone know that I'm going through a bit of a hiatus from Cosplay. Not that I'm not going to be working on stuff, but I won't have photos of new costumes or con experiences to share until sometime next year (most likely sometime in May or June). I'll pop in here every once in a while with a journal entry about costume progress and what not.
In the meantime I do have some projects on the go. I'm still working on my pink Inkling Kid costume. My friend Sierra finished the tentacles and I bought a magnum wig from Arda during their recent sale so I have the key parts of the costume. I have the shirt and shorts so I just need to add the detailing, make the mask and sew the tentacles to the wig.
My Madoka school uniform costume is still hanging in the background as well. Haven't sewed it, but that costume will be happening for Anime North next year. I also would like to re-wear Dilandau and get photos of it and finally wear my Super Sailor Chibi Moon costume that was a gift from Ammie. I should have a lot of new stuff to share next year. (^^)
In not so good news, I had what should have been my final driving test today so I could be fully licensed and I was super excited to get it over with, but the horn on my brother's car that I was using wasn't working so I was disqualified. Lost half the deposit for my test and I won't be able to give the test another shot until November 27th. I'm extremely disappointed. Kind of lost some of my motivation to be excited for Halloween and to work on my Splatoon costume. I was going to get the wig together and make the mask so I could wear the key parts of the Splatoon costume for Halloween, but I'm really depressed by how things turned out. I've been stressing about that test for 2 months and now I have to go through another month of stress and practice and this time I have to worry about the potential for snow or ice. Hopefully I can get the test bumped up to a sooner date, but I'll just be happy if my brother can get his horn fixed.
So with the way things are I'm kind of looking forward to turning my brain off anything stressful, but once I get over the shock of what just happened, hopefully I'll get my motivation back. With the cold weather approaching I probably won't be doing any photoshoots for the next several months so that's another reason for the hiatus. I do appreciate the favourites and comments that I've received here. DA is my main site for sharing my Cosplay work and I always appreciate the feedback that I receive.
