SOOOO EXcited!!!!   Just booked my room at the convention center for Anime Iowa can't wait !!!!!     Been working on my Baa-chan outfit got my buttons and badge in for it and all material for the actual sewing which is going slow but will be done by July!!

Was invited to meet up with about six other over 21 girls for drinks while at AI it will be a blast this year.   I heart Bunnuhs stamp by cindre


Plus my trip to New York in April has been booked very happy to be going as I've never been there planning on going to see many places.


Will be super busy as I just got back from Texas last week, going to New York in a month , going to Iowa in July and Minnesota three days after I get back from Iowa.   Phew I just know I will be exhausted after all is said and done. But I could care less as it will be well worth it!!  ::smile::

working time for sewing

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 19, 2011, 5:16 PM


Woo hoo just got all my fabric and pattern needed to start on my Bak- chan costume. I am super excited to start this and can't wait to see how it turns out. Maybe if it turns out good I will enter it in the workmanship contest.  

I am hoping to have it finished before June so that if I want to start on another cosplay I can get it done before Anime Iowa.

I am bringing one friend but am a little weary of having her come cause she isn't too much into anime and has never been to a convention before.

Sighs... grumbling.... know I am going to kick myself in the ass for inviting her when I should have just went alone.....

I just have a feeling she will make fun of people and make a total ass of herself gah... i am so wishing something comes up and she can't make it.....   (is that bad?????)  I feel horrible thinking that but damn I just know how she is and that she can be a real B with an itch if you get what I mean.....

Any hoo no use thinking about it now when I have months yet to deal with it if I have too.

Decisions, decisions

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 9, 2011, 12:26 PM


So I have decided to go as Kaede(Inuyasha) for Friday of AI and Saturday I am going as Bak Chan(DGray Man). I am making the costume for Bak Chan just got my new sewing machine yesterday sooo excited to try it out. Have to test it on some playing around pieces before working on my costume.

I was going to see about making the buttons for my Bak Chan but then saw how hard it is to replicate in clay for a mold. grrr so this year I will buy the buttons for the costume then maybe use them as a press for the mold I was attempting to make. (never realized how much work goes into silver work)   :meditate:  much to think on.


I haven't decided on if I will dress up on Sunday or just be comfy for the last day? I am going alone this year :O_o: hoping to see some people I might know or make new friends!

Anime Iowa

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 30, 2011, 5:19 PM


So I decided today that I am going to go to Anime Iowa! I haven't been back since 2008 and I am hoping to have a good time this year. I will probably regret it because of my back but I am just going to have to dress into a character that uses a cane ,and take breaks as much as possible. I am tired of letting my new disability rule my life. So I am sucking it up grinning and bearing the pain and dealing with it. It will be worth it in the end though. So if any one is going this year I would love to hang out and make new friends.  :blowkiss:

Need Advice update on medical status

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 16, 2011, 5:29 PM


Hi Everyone,

  I have been absent from this site for some time due to medical reasons. I am now able to focus on my artwork full-time since I am now legally disabled and no longer able to work. ::sigh:: I had  two surgeries on my back to fix some bad disks and well the results were not good. One of the surgeons made a mistake while using his blade and sliced a nerve in my back which left me with permanent nerve damage in my right leg. ugh....  
   So now the surgery that was suppose to relieve the pressure on the nerves for my left leg (which is weakened due to nerve damage) now caused my good leg (my right leg which was perfectly fine!) to be completely numb and painful when the nerve flairs up. It was tough for the first 3 months seeing as I couldn't walk ..  Needless to say not a good time to be trying to keep up with my artwork.
  However I am as well as I can get given the circumstances and pushing forward with my life . I am not going to let this keep me down , there are others that are less fortunate then me. I am thankful for what I am able to do and am going to put the past behind me and move forward.
  I am going to be posting my artwork up more frequently now seeing as I no longer work and can finally do what I have always wanted to. Sell my art to the public I am looking for any advice from other users as for how to go about getting into conventions as a vender . If you can help don't be afraid to leave me a message  I would really appreciate it! ::hug::
