Upcoming Guest Appearance

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 9, 2014, 6:53 PM


I have yet again been invited by Fan Expo Canada to be a guest at one of their conventions! This time the Toronto ComiCon! I will be at the convention for the full weekend (March 7-9) and will be presenting four cosplay panels. My profile page for the conventions as well as tickets are available here.

My facebook page and my twitter will have tons of updates about the event as it approaches 


The panels I will be running are: 
Making Spandex Manageable where I will be going through tips and tricks for working with spandex covering everything from cutting to sewing with any type of machine.
Cosplay Supplies where I will be covering how to make the best decisions for supplies that work for your costume and are within your skill set then going through tips for where to find them. Bringing pictures of your desired costumes for personalised advice is not only welcome but strongly suggested! 
Modelling for Photography which will cover tips for picking poses for your character, getting the best hall photos and suggested prep for photoshoots.
Cosplay Tips and Tricks which is a Q and A style panel where attendees may come any ask absolutely any cosplay related question! 

 

I am very excited to be able to return to Fan Expo once again as a guest as I learned last year I love doing panels and helping people out! If you are going to be in the Toronto area March 7-9 and are going to be attending Toronto ComiCon please come by and say hello!

I am planning on a new comicbookk costume for the convention and have been discussing photoshoots with some photographer friends so there will certainly be new costume photos coming soon! If anyone else is interested in doing photos please feel free to drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible! 


Also I have been invited to yet another event later in the summer which I will be posting about in the future! 

And once again my facebook page and my twitter are the fastest and easiest way to get up to date info on what's going on with me and my cosplaying! 

Cheers,
~Lee

Fan Expo and Other Updates

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 25, 2013, 10:06 PM


So exciting news, I will be a guest at this years Fan Expo! My Bio is up on their site here. I am very excited as this will be my first convention attending as an actual guest! I will be doing six cosplay panels. The panels I will be doing are Cosplay Tips and Tricks, From Artwork to Masquerade, Affordable Armour Making, Fabric Painting and Dying, Cosplay Makeup and Beginner Pattern Drafting. I am really really excited to get to share some of my know how with people! Hopefully I will get a good turn out for panels so I can do more in the future! I really truly love helping people! Also hopefully I won't end up being too drained for most of the weekend, it would be a shame to only be able to do my panels! The convention has so many other guests I am really excited to see! 

I am planning on trying to get a costume together to show what I will be discussing for each of my panels. I think I have decided on all my costumes for the weekend, but we'll see what school allows me to get done before then. Commissions come first and my stuff sadly takes the back burner so I may not get as much done as I would like, but we'll see! 

In other costume plans I will be attending the Toronto Cosplay picnic next weekend! That is so long as it does not storm. I will be dressing as the farmer from Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life (Jill) to go along with my good friend Hatless-Sheep's Claire (female farmer from many other Harvest Moon games) costume~ I am very very excited about this! It will be partially a closet cosplay, but since Harvest Moon is one of my all time favourite game series I really really wanted to do this! I really didn't see the point in making a pair of jeans for this, or making the t-shirt itself. I will be printing the t-shirt and have made my apron, but otherwise I will just have normal jeans XD 

I will also be at Costume Con 32 in Toronto next April! I plan on competing in almost every event! I am insanely excited about the Historical Masquerade as historical recreation costuming is what I am going to school for! I will certainly be submitting things for the Future Fashion Folio as I do fifteen garment drawings every week (and have since January) for class! I really love a bunch of the garments I have come up with so I think I will refine them and submit a few. Also if there are any outfits I really like that make it into the folio I will more than likely want to make one! Also the single pattern contest interests me greatly... because... well .. MERMAIDS! We'll see with school what I can actually do, but there is so much I would like to participate in! 

I would also like to try and make it out to Otakuthon this year, it is right at the end of my Exam week, so I am not sure I will be able to, but I would really really like to! I have costume ideas, and actually a masquerade idea! I was originally planning this for Fan Expos Masquerade, but then when I was asked about being a guest I figured it was inappropriate to compete in their masq! So hopefully I will be able to shift those plans to Otakuthon, but we'll see. School will be rather insane towards the end of the semester so I have no idea if I will have time but hopefully! They are rather big plans (which I am currently keeping secret) so we'll see! 

I am so so happy to be able to get back into cosplay and it has been such a wonderful year so far! I have not been this excited about things in a long time! I am even getting crazy excited about conventions I may be able to attend next year when I have an actual summer break! So so many fun plans! I really hope they will all pan out! 

Anyways I think that is enough of an update for now! Toodles! 
Also if any of you see me at any upcoming event please feel free to say hello~

Cheers,
~Lee

Anime North Run Down

Journal Entry: Thu May 30, 2013, 7:08 PM


So this was my first time going to Anime North in a long time (three years I believe) In the past I had always had really mixed feelings about Anime North. I wanted to go and have a good time. I like the convention itself and have usually liked a lot of the events they have. However I normally had a pretty bad time in the end (usually because of a whole bunch of other things)

This year however was completely different! I had an all around blast and this was the first year I had left the convention thinking "I will definitely be back next year!"

I spent my Friday in a little bit of a hectic mess in the morning. I was supposed to be helping out with booth set up and could not get a hold of the people I was supposed to be helping. In the end they never ended up needing me, so I got myself all worked up in the morning. Rather later in the day me boyfriend and I finally got down to the con and got registered with our staff badges. I was a judge of the Friday Night Skit Contest, which I was really excited for (and a little nervous about). It was my first time judging an event and I was so honoured to have been asked to! I had a blast doing it! My fellow judges were so wonderful and fun to discuss with, and I was amazed by how wonderful all the skits were! It made it rather difficult to pick who won what. I was so so happy to get the chance to judge, and I am really hoping I get the opportunity to do so again in the future!

Saturday was a little all over the place too, I went through the dealers room quickly just to see what was there, and to grab a Batman Domo (who is now the silent guardian of my living-room) Then I went back to my room to get ready for the Masquerade. I wasn't competing, but instead was going to go up on stage before the masquerade started to give out the awards from the skit contest. Sadly due to the massive delay of the Masq being able to start they opted to announce the awards at the same time as the Masquerade ones and cut us from going out at the beginning. I do completely understand why this happened as the masq started over an hour late.

Sunday was solely for getting a good look in the dealers room and practising my photography skills! I did two rather wonderful shoots! One with the lovely Hatless-Sheep dressed as Princess Sakura from Tsubasa and one with both Jayuna and Jiah as Kyouko Kirigiri and Aoi Asahina from Dangan Ronpa. Those are the only photo shoots I took part in, so sadly there will be no new photos of me coming from AN, however there will be new photos I've taken!

I had a lot of wonderful dinners with friends over the weekend (and one not so great dinner but still with awesome people) and got to know a couple new (and amazingly awesome) people, which made the convention especially wonderful! Sadly I didn't really get to see a lot of people I would have liked to (or at least didn't get to spend as much time with them as I would like to have)

This convention was mostly non cosplaying for me (as I am still getting back into the convention scene after my break) I was in costume for the skit contest and later in the evening on Saturday. Hopefully I will have some new photos coming soon. David and I have lots of ideas for fun shoots, and I have been super excited for making new costumes (as well as getting photos of older costumes) Fan Expo will be a whole different story about cosplaying though. My goal is to have a new costume for all four days (we'll see if school lets me do that though) I am also planning to make an appearance at the Niagara Falls Comic Con next weekend if I don't have to work.. so that may or may not happen XD I am also going to try and do photos if I make it there!

So I think that's really all I have to say currently. As stated above there will be new photos coming, ones I have taken, not ones I am in. Otherwise I do have some ones from other past events coming of me! So stay tuned for that!

Cheers everyone!

Con-G and a Return to Cosplay

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 25, 2013, 6:51 PM


So as some of you are aware, I have taken a hiatus from cosplay and conventions (a little over a year) Well as of this weekend my convention break has ended! I went to Con-G and had a wonderful time! (Ensuring I will be going to more conventions this year) A full report on the convention can be found here on my facebook page. be sure to follow my page, as I will be posting almost all new content there first until I can get my new website up and running!

Some of the highlights of the conventions were competing in the masquerade as Lady Eboshi with vickybunnyangel as San, Kudrel-Cosplay as The Forest Spirit and lameasscosplayer as Ashitaka! We took Best in Class Masters, which was such a wonderful surprise! I will be posting a link to our video Masquerade skit as soon as the video gets posted! Also I did three photoshoots on the weekend (one in Eboshi and two in Fuka from Disgaea 4) So look forward to those photos! It has been so long since I have really had any new costumes, so having two for one weekend was wonderful! I also took some cosplay photos over the weekend of Hatless-Sheep, so some of those will likely be coming soon too! (Though they may be posted to the other account)

I will certainly be attending Anime North and Fan Expo this year. I am also considering trying to attend the Toronto Comic Con, but we will see how that goes with my school schedule. I plan on trying to make a new costume or two for each of these cons so there should be a lot of new content coming over the year! I have been bitten with the cosplay bug all over again so I am really gung ho about things!

That's about it for now~
Catch you later,
~Lee

Happy Hallowe'en!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 31, 2012, 11:12 PM


So first and foremost, Happy Hallowe'en to everyone!


This would be the pumpkin I carved quickly when I got home tonight! I was freehand cutting and didn't feel up to trying to freehand two eyes that looked the same so he ended up with a scar XD Also I only had about twenty minutes to carve the thing so I had to be quick about it! Still I am pretty pleased with him! Thanks so much to David for the awesome shot!

Now sadly on to some bad news, due to the overly rainy and windy weather caused by Sandy this week David and I were unable to do the shoot we were planning on. And because next week is our first week in our new house it may be a while before we get a chance to get some photos done. We are going to try and get something in the next little while if we can, but it may be more of a wait than I would like! Also, I now have everything I need to put together a new costume using a bunch of things I had on hand, so the next shoot will likely be something completely new, not a re-shoot like I was thinking! A couple people know what the new costume is, but I am mostly trying to keep it on the down low until I have some photos to post! SURPRISE COSTUME WILL BE A SURPRISE!

There will also likely be a couple Lady Eboshi photos coming soon, as the wonderful vickybunnyangel has set up a huge Studio Ghibli photoshoot on November 18th so I am hoping to get a couple pictures of my costume then! This is something that has been years in the making and I am dying to finally wear it somewhere and get some pictures~

But yes so sorry that nothing will be coming too soon guys! Until I start school I mostly only get to see David on weekends as he works during the week, and I usually work every weekend so photos are tricky to get! Especially when we are getting a new house all set up for us to move in! I will certainly try my hardest to get something though! So fingers crossed, I will get something new posted here before too long!

So much for timely updates ^^:

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 26, 2012, 4:47 PM


Well, my timely updates seem to have fallen flat! Sorry about that guys! I went through a bit of a down period in cosplay. I didn't go to any conventions this year and have done no photos. I have been working on things, but not the same way I used to. That is changing again though! I have been bitten by the cosplay bug again and have got rather gung-ho about a whole bunch of things!

First and foremost I am sure you have all noticed I started a poll to see what costumes you guys would like to see a re-shoot of! My boyfriend keeps telling me he wants to try his hand at shooting cosplay portraits (he shoots mostly landscapes) and I want to get more photos done so we are going to try and go out and get some done this weekend! Hopefully between work and baby cousin's birthday we will have time! We'll see! I am also off for three days at the beginning of the week so I can head up to his place and perhaps get shots one night after he works!

I am thinking Princess Jupiter will actually be the one that ends up getting shot this week! Not only because it is currently winning the poll, but because I have never done a real shoot in it, and I do plan on retiring it shortly and completely remaking it. I think I did a great job on it for the time it was made, but my skills have developed since then and I can do much better now I am sure! We'll see though, I am not positive yet! The rest will also certainly get shots done... I am just not sure when ^^; certainly, not this week! I am sure we will only have time for one set of photos this week! And I think I will use the poll for a guideline of what order to shoot in!

In other photo shoot news I am planning to do a shoot with Cooking Mama finally as soon as David and I move into our new place (We are getting the keys on the 1st) I finally have a pretty kitchen that I think will work for those photos! I figure I can cook us an awesome meal and get some photos done in the process! Also I plan on doing a Sandman shoot soon with my current Dream costume. I do want to make a few other Dream costumes, but I have been meaning to shoot this one for quite a while now! I have so many photo ideas swirling in my head, I just need to get them out!

In terms of new costumes, I want to finish up EVERYTHING I have fabric and supplies for (most of those can be found in my Upcoming Costumes page on facebook) There are a few more things I have supplies for that aren't on there, but those are most of them! I have to use what I have as opposed to spending money on new things for a while. I am getting rather ridiculous in terms of fabric hoarding! I will admit I did buy a wig and fabric yesterday to make a new costume :s I just couldn't help myself! But after that I am cutting myself off! I need to use what I have! I don't have money to buy other things!

I think that is all I have to put in the update for now!

Cheers,
~Lee

A More Timely Update

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 22, 2012, 10:21 PM


So as the title states this is a more timely update than usual for me. First things first, I have to say I was incredibly surprised by the results of the "Which Sailor Scout" poll I posted a while back. I am not surprised that Sailor Jupiter won.. I completely expected that.. but I did expect it to be by a larger margin, and everything after that was a complete shocker. I did not expect Mars to be number two! Nor did I think certain scouts would get any votes, like Moon and Mini Moon (I could pull of Mini Moon!? REALLY!? I am almost six feet tall! 0,o') I really wish more people had stated their reasons for voting certain ways. I would really love to hear why people think I can pull off certain scouts. It did however make me think that I may have more options of scouts I can pull off than I thought I did (though truth be told I don't think Moon or Mini moon are ever going to happen)

In other cosplay related news I have become ridiculously addicted to the Disgaea Games. My Boyfriend David had been playing the first one ported over to the DS and it looked like a lot of fun, so my new room mate (or should I call him a tenant?) allowed me to borrow his! I have played over thirty eight hours of it and have now acquired all three of the other core Disgaea games. I absolutely LOVE Fuuka's design from Disgaea 4 and have started picking out fabric and wigs for it, once I am finished the first one I plan on moving onto the fourth (I know I know I don't usually play games so grossly out of order) I only want to play that one now so I can find out if I actually like the character! If it turns out I like the character as much as I like her design there is a very very strong possibility I will be cosplaying as her at some point this year! (I am thinking for Anime North if I do in fact end up attending this year)   

If I do end up going to Anime North I am thinking new costumes *may* be Wanda from Fairly Oddparents, Fuuka from Disgaea 4 and possibly something else listed in my last journal entry. Ideally I would like to get a lot of the things I have started and have the supplies for done this year. Though I always say that and it still doesn't happen! **must get better at that** However with Wanda (a costume I have had all the supplies for since last year) there has been some progress!

I stated in my last journal the intent to start props and I have in fact started some prop work! I started work on my Wanda wand and have got a pretty good start at it. I have the entire base done and now I just need to wait for warmer weather so I can fibreglass it. Progress picture can be found here in my facebook progress album. As it states on the images I do plan on making a full tutorial when I am done! Also please feel free to add me as a friend on facebook if you would like! I am always happy to make new friends!

Sadly there has not been so much progress on the website front.. Hopefully soon though!! **Need to poke David more about it** -^^-

I think that's all I've got for now!
Cheers,
~Lee

Cosplay Girl of the Year and Other Random Updates!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 24, 2012, 1:26 AM


So it has been quite a while since I have updated... again! One day I will be good with updating things I swear!

So first things first, back in December I was featured on Comic Impact as their Cosplay Girl of the Month. Because of that feature I am now entered into their Cosplay Girl of The Year Contest. I would greatly appreciate any support I can get, so please drop by and vote! Also you can vote once a day so please feel free to spread the love around, there are a lot of amazing girls in the contest! I am simply honoured to have been featured!

In other cosplay related news, I am not entirely sure what the next year holds for me in terms of what conventions I will be going to, or even what costumes I plan on making. I am thinking a few of the definites for next year in terms of costumes are Wonder Woman, Sailor Pluto, Noki and Sailor Lethe. I will also be finishing up my Ame Comi Mera, though I really wish to take my time with everything for that one.. so given the fact that it is all scale maille it may not be finished this con season. I was also thinking I wish to fix up a few costumes and rewear them. I have been dying to wear Ruby Gloom again, but I really need to take it in a bit since it was too big when I made it and I have lost wait since then. In terms of conventions I have no clue at all.. I would like to try to attend San Diego Comic Con again, but everything else is very up in the air. There will likely be a few conventions at the very least, but I have no clue what they will be currently!

I will also hopefully be getting my butt in gear on a new website.. I know I have been saying that forever, but I swear it will happen! My website is so out of date it is not even funny! I believe it is getting close to a year out of date :S Anyways my boyfriend and I have been talking about him redoing my website. It's quite convenient because I would like a new website, and he would like some non work related websites to add to his portfolio! We keep throwing ideas back and forth about it so hopefully we will actually get down to business on it soon!

I am going to be starting some prop work soon too! So I will certainly be posting some photos of my prop work, and will more than likely start posting some tutorials if I come up with methods I like! I think I am going to start with either Sailor Pluto's Time Key or Sailor Jupiter's Transformation Pen. I want to get a little practice on something else before I start working on my Ame Comi Mera Trident.

But yes I think that's all I have to say for now!
As I stated at the beginning of this post any support for the Cosplay Girl of The Year Contest would be greatly greatly appreciated!

Toodles all,
~Lee

Where Did I Go? Who Knows~ But I'm Back Now!!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 12, 2011, 11:53 AM


Bwaaaa okay so it has been entirely WAAAAAAAY too long since I have updated here! Four Months is entirely too long too leave a journal entry up here! (sometimes I'm really good with these, and some times I am horribly bad!) Actually it hasn't just been the journals, I have been basically away from DA all together the last few months and I shall hopefully be on a bit more over the next couple.

I do have a TON of stuff I would like to post here. So there will be quite a bit of things coming, I just don't want to flood them all onto here at once! I have received photos from four photoshoots I have done recently with a fifth one on it's way soon. All of different costumes so I've got quite a bit of new things I can post!

As for my website it is also insanely behind... I think I have.. five or six costumes that need to be posted, but I am still holding out for a new website and am not entirely sure what to do! I don't want to pour too much time into the one I have now only to have to do the work all over again for the new one. So nothing new there for now but I assure you guys something will be happening soon hopefully!

New and exciting things costume wise I am working on an insanely detailed Ame Comi Mera costume! I am doing the entire shirt and fin out of scale maile and have been rather obsessively working on the crown! That is really going to be my main focus for next years con season I think (at least for things I am working on for myself)There are a good number of shots of what I have done so far in my Progress and Stuff album on Facebook

There are a few other things I would like to finish up. My Navi from Legend of Zelda. I wore it to Anime North last convention season, but it was no where near finished. I am hoping to spend some time this year to finish up some things.. Hopefully the things I have been working on in the past still fit! I have lost a rather unfortunate amount of weight (from illness not from me actually actively trying to loose weight... I just want to eat a sammich XD )   

I'm not entirely sure what conventions I will be hitting next year. I have a whole lot of nothing really set in stone after FutureCon this year. I am sure I will be at a couple, just not sure what and when!  

I also think I am going to dial back the commissions I take next year, as I ended up having no time to work on my own things as I was doing too many for other people! So commissions slots will be limited next year! If you want something, I suggest contacting me rather early!

An Update this Quickly? What the Deuce?

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 9, 2011, 9:46 AM


So I know this is really weird for me, two updates within a short amount of time from one another! But I kept meaning to post this and then forgetting!

I will be having a kiriban at 25,000 page views!

Who ever gets it will receive a custom made hat (or small plushie.. what ever floats your boat) of what ever they want! All you need to do is be my 25,000 page view, grab a screen capture of it, and send it on my way! I am going to specify that only my watchers will be allowed to participate in this. I would like to give this to someone who actually supports my work. My little way of giving back to you guys!

Also just a little bit of an update about commissions, I have had tons of requests for commissions through to the end of the summer (and into the beginning of fall) so if you were considering commissioning me for something, I would request doing it soon, before I have no more commission slots left! Feel free to shoot me a message via the commissions section down at the bottom of this journal if there's anything you were looking for!

But yes that is really all I have to mention for now!
Toodles,
~Lee

An Update? What is this nonsense? Also Anime North

Journal Entry: Sun May 29, 2011, 8:44 PM


Hello all! Once again it has been a very long time in between updates ^^; I am starting to think that is just going to be my norm from now on.

SO I have nothing overly huge and exciting to report on. Fixing up a couple costumes, starting some new ones and now I am super pumped for convention season again!

Anime North was this weekend, and I actually had a way better time than I expected to, even with all the stress and drama there was throughout the weekend. I've never really had a great time at Anime North before, I never went last year, and I actually assumed this year was going to be a blast! I never got Navi %100 completed, and I'm okay with that~ I had a blast running around in it anyways.. and I figure this is a "test run" for later!

Other than that I had a pretty relaxing weekend. Friday I had a lovely spa date with the always fabulous vickybunnyangel then went for sushi with x-mywishingstar, then Saturday a group of us decided it was a good time for late night steaks so X-mywishingstar, paper-stars, lameasscosplayer, PinkCarbon and Cory all went to Milestones for yummy yummy awesome fun late night meeeeat! (also amazingly yummy apple crumble) It was also nice and relaxing having a hotel with X-Mywishingstar, Paper-stars and Red-Ribbon-Cosplay. No mess, no stress and all around welcoming room (I hate having too make people crammed into a room) It was so nice to see so many people! And I'm so sorry to those of you I missed! Hopefully I will get a chance to see everyone again soon! More of an actual update will be coming to my website shortly (either later tonight or tomorrow)  

In other cosplay related news I will likely be finishing up Navi for Otakuthon, which will be super! I think that is a much better venue for big wings anyways XD Also there will be shots of my Ichigo from Katamari Damacy coming soon! I am so so so excited to see the photos! I did them with the always amazing Solar Tempest Also I will likely be starting on some new and different things soon, which I am excited about! There will be new hats I have made being posted soon, as well as some other little crafty sewing things I have been doing (though those may be posted over on the art account) The next thing for me is getting my butt in gear on commissions for the rest of the summer so I have some time to do my own things.

I think that's all I really have to say for now!
Toodles guys!

Upcoming Conventions and Costumes

Okay guys so this is just a little bit of an update. I figured I should post a little bit of an Upcoming costumes and events list! This year is going to be a little bit insane in terms of the conventions I am attending and the amount of costumes I plan on making! I have been getting a rather good head start on things so hopefully the year plays out the way I plan it to XD

My next convention is going to be the Wizard World Comicon in Toronto. I will likely be wearing Black Lantern Wonder Woman, Mera and Black Widow. my Mera may end up being Red Lantern Mera if I can't find a fabric I like for her normal outfit... I thought I had something for it.. but then after digging it out I was super displeased with it, so I have been hunting since then!

As for conventions after that my next big one is Anime North, and may I just say I have never been so excited about a convention! I am going to be a part of three amazingly wonderful groups! First is a Fairly Oddparents group where we have the entire core "family" (Timmy, Wanda, Cosmo and Poof) as well as a few extras!  Second is a HUGE Katamari group a friend of mine was organising! As it stands now we have about thirty people who have joined on (though I am sure several will either not get their costumes done or change their mind on doing them) but even if a bunch drop out there is still going to be a big amazing group of us! **Hell even if it was just me running around as a cousin I would have a blast!** And last but not least is a Zelda group! There are a whole bunch of us taking part in this too (though a couple of our members are keeping their costumes a secret so I can't go into detail about them) But I am going to be Navi! I am very very excited about my costume!! I have wanted to do an original fairy costume for a while now, and I figured getting to design my own outfit for an obnoxious bossy ball of light was a good start!

There are a ton more things I am planning on doing this year.. but instead of listing them all here I will point you in the direction of my websites "Upcoming Events" section! It has my full year on there (or at least what has be settled on so far) and what I plan on wearing to each event!

Last but not least in other D.A. related news, my Katamari head tutorial is almost done! After that I now have a huge huge list of other tutorials I plan on writing! I was also asked to join a cosplay tutorial youtube channel! So I will certainly post here when things start being set in motion with that!

Also before I go, this is a last call for commissions for the summer! I have... perhaps two or three more slots open for the entire summer. So if you are interested in it please shoot me a message **Commission info located below**
If by some off chance I finish things massively ahead of time I will open up some slots. But for now this is looking like it for the summer!

An Updatey Update (Filled With Katamari)

Alrighty.. so I have recently been holy crap swamped with commissions.. Which is both wonderful, and overwhelming! So if you want anything commissioned I would suggest contacting me as soon as possible. I am currently taking commissions for mid June and later.. though August is filling up insanely quickly. (as in three requests today alone quickly) I may open up some more early commissions slots if I can manage to get everything I have to do done earlier than expected, but I can make no promises about that.

In other news I have been visiting paper-stars which is always lovely! We have been working on our Katamari cousins costumes for Anime North this year.. and I can't even properly express how insanely freaking excited I am for these costumes! I've got a bit of an explanation of what we've been doing on those costumes, as well as a bunch of pictures of what we've got done so far over on my websites journal.  We will be working on them a bit more tonight and hopefully will get our heads more or less finished tonight. I am going to make a tutorial on how we made our heads, so that will likely get posted within a week or so.

In other news, I have been crocheting a lot lately.. A whole bunch of weird random things.. so I will likely post a couple of those things over on my other DA account soon! My favourite thing I've made so far is an adorable little Jellyfish! I wanted to make him to hang on my purse... but I stupidly made him WAAAAY too big.. so I shall have to make another one XD

That's about it for this update. As usual there is more of an in depth update over on my website. So if you are curious as to what all is going on with my cosplays feel free to head on over there!

Also again Thank you to all my new watchers, and all the people who have favourited my things over the last little while! I ♥ you all ^^ Your support means so much to me!
Oh and if anyone would like to, feel free to add me on facebook! Lee Scion ^^
I update there the most with new costume things and progress pictures. So it is a very good way to see what I am up to!

Oh my goodness guys! I posted that Powerpuff Girls pictures before I went to bed last night and submitted it to a couple groups and woke up to find it had been requested in groups, viewed a whole ton and added to favourites more than I can keep up with. Thank you all so so much. I am so glad everyone likes it! It was apparently on the front page! I have never had anything on the front page before!
What 0.o by The-Cosplay-Scion
Of all the things to get flooded with action like that I never expected it to be that ^^ Thank you thank you thank you again!

Also thank you to every one for all the :+fav:s lately on everything in my gallery. Not just my New PPG picture. Also wow thank you to all my new watchers, I ♥ you guys all so much! I apologise that I no longer thank everyone personally, but I always tend to fall so far behind in sending thank you messages to people that the system thinks I am spamming and won't let me post too many. I'm always so bad at keeping up to date at responding to comments, so again I do apologise.

In other news I have quite a few things to post here over the next little while. Another shot of my Black Widow, my first shot from the Scarlet Witch photo shoot I did with stillvisions and a couple more Zatanna pictures. So I will likely be rather active the next little while.

I am working on a whole bunch of new things, I updated my website with all the info on that, so feel free to follow the link up at the top to read all about that.

I am going to sign off this journal with one last little note. I am currently getting a lot of commission requests, many more than I generally get this time of year so I figured it might be a good idea to post a comment here and let anyone who may be interested in commissioning something know that I am currently all booked up into the June. So if you would like a costume for June or later Please feel free to send me a message via the commissions section of my website (link down at bottom of journal) and I will get back to you as quickly as I can.

Thank you all so much again for all your support. It means so very much to me!

Cheers,
~Scion

It has been forever since I last updated. A whole lot has happened since the last update. Fan Expo, which had a ton of new costumes, DragonCon which was insanely amazing on so very very very many levels, and also sported some new costumes, a zombie photoshoot in High Park, the Toronto Zombie walk which saw the death of my Zatanna costume and Halloween which brought along Black Lantern Wonder Woman. I am not going to delve into any real info in those for now.. it has been too long since a few of these events, and there is just too much that can be said.

I will go into the events from the end of October a bit though. Towards the middle of the month ACG-North-America had a cosplay gathering in Highpark. Stargazer-Gemini did a small little makeup tutorial for zombie makeup using x-mywishingstar and I as models, which made it possible for us to do an amazing zombie photoshoot later that day! There are a couple pictures of it floating around my gallery now ^^

The week after the photoshoot was the Toronto Zombie walk. I was hoping to have Black Lantern Wonder Woman done, however I ended up hitting so many bumps along the way putting that costume together that I ended up running out of time. instead I tore up my Zatanna costume and made myself a corpse Zatanna (there is also a picture of that in my gallery ^^ ) So my Zatanna has been destroyed, but I am hoping to remake it at some point this year.

The week after that was HALLOWEEN! I had my Black Lantern Wonder Woman mostly done, and accompanied a group of friends to the Silver Snail Halloween party! We won best overall costumes with our Black Lantern Group, which was pretty awesome! My costume was still missing a few pieces, so I am hoping to get it done and wear it again for the Wizard World Comicon in Toronto in March ^^ Then  I can get some nice pictures of it to post here **nods** There is one picture of it posted so far. Just a photo my friend Phil took at the party, but I like it none the less!

In other news I am waiting on a few photos from Fan Expo still. Scarlet Witch, Buttercup and a couple more of Riddler are still yet to be posted, so as soon as I get those I will be sure to post some here ^^

I also now have a completed Black Widow costume! I am hoping to do some photos with it before it starts to snow, so those should be coming shortly ^^ The body suit I made for Black Widow I am also planning on using for Catwoman and Black Cat. So I think I may get started on those shortly as well!
I am also currently working on The Snow card from Cardcaptor Sakura. I am doing a little bit of my own take on it, because it is not quite as detailed as I would like. That is being made for DTAC in the second weekend of December, so expect more about it when DTAC gets closer!

Now off to update the website!

So busy busy busy. Costume stuff is trucking along! Last weekend was the cosplay picnic! Tricky Love and I went wearing my redone Howl (on Tricky) and my newly made Sophie Hatter (on me)! We also had a Plush Calcifer I made ^^ Good times were had XD Much much more of an update is on my website, and proper pictures should be coming soon ^^

As for upcoming costume things, Polaris is this weekend! I made a Donna Troy costume to wear to it, and I am just hoping that things work out so I can actually go! I’m aiming to get there for Saturday and Sunday, and hopefully things will work out that I can ^^

I also now have a few more commissions in the works, which is awesome! I’m really excited about them! I’m so so happy to be getting commissions more and more frequently!

But yeah that’s about it for an update for now! As I said there is a much bigger update over on the website so feel free to check it out ^^

Cheers,

Lots and Lots and lots of costume plans to mention!!

First of all I have got almost all the chain mail detailing for my Rydia done! All the trim around the first piece I started I got done the next day and then I started working on a couple larger pieces! Those larger pieces have since turned into cuffs for the sleeves. The cuffs are almost completely done, I need to add one more row of mail to the second cuff, but I’ve run out of rings and I seem to have bought all the rings the Michael’s in my area had in stock. So I have to wait a week or so for them to get more in so I can buy another pack and finish up the cuffs! Since I got all the detailing done so quickly I decided it was a good idea to make an overlay for the cape! So I went online a few days ago and placed and order for a couple thousand rings! I think it’s likely going to be a huge amount of work, but I think I’ll be able to do it ^^ I have huge amounts of time at work every day where I get paid to just sit around and that’s when I did all the rest of the mail work so I think I’ll be fine for getting it done in time :3 A look at some of what I have for my Rydia outfit can be found here.

There are a whole bunch of Final Fantasy costumes I’m hoping to get done in the next little while! I’m hoping to make a Selphie SeeD uniform. I love Selphie so much, and despite the fact that her outfits are rather simple I can’t help but want to make them! I also would love to rewear my regular old Selphie outfit again! I have a commission at the moment for Selphie’s yellow dress. Also as I’m sure I have stated before, I finally found the perfect fabric to remake my Lulu out of! I couldn’t believe how difficult it was to find a charcoal grey vinyl!! YEARS I HUNTED FOR IT!!!! But now that I have it I can’t wait to get started on it! I started my second wig a while back, I’m happy with it so far! Also I have parts of both Amano and Crisis Core Aerith done.. One day I will finish both of those!! Other than that there are tons of Final Fantasy costumes I would like to do, but none I have any near future plans of doing.

I recently finished reading Howl’s Moving Castle (and am now onto the first sequel Castle in the Air) and I loved it!!! It made so much of the movie make more sense! And Sophie is so so so cool in the book! Now I really want to do Howl’s Moving Castle cosplay again so I’m hoping to fix up my Howl costume. I’m taking it to be dry cleaned in hopes that the cookie I sat on at Anime North will come out.. I have washed the fabric so many times and tried so many different things and the stupid fudgee-o grease won’t come out! I want to be sure the grease is going to come out before I put the effort into fixing the coat, if it doesn’t I am just going to completely remake it. But once I have the costume fixed up I am going to stick Trickylove in it and make myself a Sophie costume ^^ I haven’t completely decided which yet, but I believe I will make the blue dress that Sophie wears and have the short silver hair :3 Tricky and I are planning to wear these to the Toronto cosplay picnic if I can get everything all finished up by then! I’m not making any promises about it but I really really hope I can get it done! I am so very very excited do these costumes!

The last costume that actually has a set event is Scarlet Witch! I’m really excited to do another comic costume! I have so much fun running around as my favourite Comic book characters! But yes I will be making Scarlet Witch for Fan Expo, yet again Trickylove will be accompanying me as Quicksilver and paper-stars is going to be our half sister Polaris! I am insanely excited!!! I bought my wig and my tights today, but I still haven’t completely decided on which version I want to do. I think I may just make a sort of amalgam of the aspects I like from each of her outfits.  I found a pair of boots I absolutely love! They are not quite accurate but they are so so so amazing, so I may end up getting them anyways XD

Fan Expo is going to be so great this year I can’t wait! My goal is to actually get to do the masq again this year! I realised I haven’t actually been in a real masquerade in a couple years. Some times I’ve run out of time to sign up and others I have just not been happy with my costume, but this year I WILL DO IT! I miss it ever so much!

But I think that’s enough of an update for now!!

I also added a bit of an update to the website so there is a tiny bit more information there ^^

Ciao
