So wow I didn't realize it'd been over a year since my last Journal. I gotta say, 2014 was a rollercoaster. While we did finally achieve our dream of being Team USA for World Cosplay Summit, it was definitely a ton of work. Japan was amazing and we got to meet so many fantastic people through the event. I loved it. I honestly don't know if I could put the experience into words, but GenkiLife did a pretty good job in their issue last summer.
A couple months after getting back, I ended up in the worst car accident of my life and it took about 2 months to put my life back together after shattering my hip and some major head injuries.  I'm mostly recovered, some 8 months later.  I'll still have some pretty gnarly scars from it forever, and I struggle sometimes with my short-term memory, but I'm doing good again.
It's kind of hard, whenever you finish a major accomplishment, there's this feeling of, "well... what now?" that kind of needles at you. Pushes you to do something bigger and better and more successful. Sadly the US just doesn't have a lot of major cosplay competitions that have a worldwide draw like WCS, but I've been taking on some pretty big projects just so my skills don't get rusty.
Goals... well? I want to start my webcoming, "Cosplay Panic," up again soon. I have a lot of stories to draw from and I hope it'll be something fun and engaging so please look forward to it. I also want to make all kinds of fun costumes and take lots of pictures! Fall tends to be convention-season for me, so here's a few I'll be visiting in the next few months:
Nan Desu Kan
Senshi-Con
Anime Banzai
Anime Los Angeles

Hope to see you there! And if not, hope to do some more reliable updates soon. :)

Gumi - Under Your Spell by Pan-Pan
Gumi - Under Your Spell
Gumi from the Madness of the Duke of Venomania. A really sad, but cool vocaloid song. I love Gumi, so it was interesting to see a song that revolved around her and Gakupo. This was a pretty quick build, I think only about 12 yards of fabric (the skirt had 2 layers). I have a hard time posing for shots that are laying down, but I think this was a great angle and shot!

SURPRISE;
Believe it or not, two birthday muro drawing copies I made, of chibi Haruhi Suzumiya and Mikuru Asahina wishing you one, so, wishes 'n' luck!

Ah wow! Thank you so much for following me! I don't know if I will pick up that series again or not.  Much as I'd like to, my writing has changed a lot since then and there are some new stories I'd like to try out.  I would like to maybe try a spin-off with Kenji or Mitsu at some point. XD Hopefully gonna get back into manga-making more in the next couple months.  It's definitely one of my new-year resolutions! ^^
