Hi people!! Thanks so much for all of the birthday messages, it's so nice to hear from my LJ people in this very Tumblr day and age. :)
DRAGON CON!!!!Collapse )
AND - and this is the big announcement - TheOneRing.net premiered our cosplay parody music video!!

If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, WATCH AND SHARE THIS, IT IS FABULOUS BEYOND WORDS. I was SO blessed to get to be a part of this project, it came about for me as a last minute invite brought on by a chance meeting at a fabric store, and it turned into just one of the most wonderful experiences.  I play Arwen. If you are on tumblr, follow Josh at Thranduart, he is AMAZING.

                                                                               


In Trek news, Star Trek Continues won the Geekie award for best web series!! (SEE MOM I TOLD YOU BEING A GEEK WOULD PAY OFF!) We were also selected to screen my baby, episode 3, Fairest of them All, this week at the Burbank Film Festival. AAAHHHHHH!!! Follow us on facebook at Official Star Trek Continues for updates - exciting stuff happening soon! :D

Hi!!

1) DUDE HOW ABOUT THAT FINALE!? (Yes I'm still alive, I managed to catch up with SPN 2 days before the finale and I'm still just like .... UGH I NEED TIME TO FIC I *REALLY* WANT TO FINISH REPO NOW lol)

2) IMPORTANT: digitalwave is in a tight spot and she is selling some fannish things to help with some medical bills, please check out her listing and spread the word, she is a super amazing person and she deserves our support.

3) We are less than ONE MONTH OUT to the premier of our third episode of Star Trek Continues!! I SLAVED over this episode for 4 months and I have never EVER EVER been more proud of a thing. 70% of the costumes in the episode were sourced, drafted, cut, dyed, and made by me, and the other 30% were sourced, drafted and cut by me and assembled elsewhere. Vic promoted me to wardrobe supervisor and I got to run my first shoot - it was tough at times, but as a whole the entire team agrees that this episode is our favorite so far, it looks FANTASTIC and I can't wait for everyone to see it!! IF YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA, go catch the worldwide premier at Supanova in Sydney on June 15th! Screening in Perth to follow. And if you want to watch our other 2 episodes, please check them out at www.startrekcontinues.com. :)

Happy New Year!!

2013 was a crazy busy convention year for me. In addition to school projects, which included producting an entire collection and finishing a complete portfolio, I also made more cosplays than ever. Pictured are 8 or the 9 new cosplays I did this year. (The missing one is just the red/engineering version of the Star Trek dress) Not shown are 2 cosplays that I completed that I haven't had a chance to wear yet. (Narcissa Malfoy from Harry Potter and Rangiku Matsumoto from Bleach.)

1) Riza Hawkeye, Fullmetal Alchemist 2) Azusa Yumi, Soul Eater 3) Rule 63 Full Resonance Death the Kid, Soul Eater 4) Yuko Ichihara, xxxHolic 5) Original design, Jellyfish Lolita 6) Star Trek TOS Commander 7) Hokuto of the 7 Stars, Shikabane Hime 8) Yuko Ichihara, xxxHolic

Also not pictured: Cosplays I helped other people make: Justin Law, Franken Stein, and Crona from Soul Eater, Izumi Curtis from FMA, and TONS of prop work for Soul Eater: Stein's rolling chair, Spirit Albarn's Deathscythe form, and the Witchhunter for Maka.

2013 Anime List

I am still catching up on a ton of anime, and also watching some of the newer ones coming out. There is a good mix here of older and new but my top three shonen recommendations out of everything I watched this year are definitely Attack on Titan, Soul Eater, and D.Gray-Man, and Shojo/mix would be Fruits Basket. <3 I also read the Soul Eater and Fruits basket mangas and they are fantastic.

OMIGOSH is this thing still here?  *checks for pulse*

I just graduated from Fashion Design school, wheee! And the first thing I wanted to do is catch up on ... everything. O.o

I just came off of what was easily the best experience of my life thus far - working in wardrobe for Star Trek Continues, along side some of my favorite people in the world. I'm one step closer to being a real live professional, lol. The sets are amazing and getting to know Vig Mignogna, Todd Haberkorn, Chris Doohan, Grant Imahara, Chuck Huber and the rest of the cast has been such an honor. Vic and I are already hard at work collaborating on pieces for the next episode, and honestly, there is nothing better in life than finding out that someone you really respect and idolize is exactly who you thought they were. So proud to be a part of Vic's dream project and so grateful for my adoption into his Star Trek family. <3

Check us out at StarTrekContinues and view our first episode, Pilgrim of Eternity. Our second episode that we just wrapped will be out before you know it, help us spread the TOS love! :D

What has been going on with all of YOU!? Is anyone still out there? Is this thing on? HAVE THE DOLPHINS TAKEN OVER!? Questions need answers, lol.

*Muah*!

Hi everybody! Holy cow has it really been since JANUARY that I posted anything!? O.0

FANNISH NEWS!

Where to start. Last weekend I did this. It was awesome and we had a blast and I love love love cosplaying Hawkeye with the power of a thousand suns. Vic Mignogna did something super awesomely cool a few months ago for my friend just because I reached out and asked him to even though he was extremely busy, so in retaliation I made him awesome kick ass Star Trek Continues things so he could promote his new web series with awesome kick ass things, and he hugged and kissed the crap out of me and then did something even MORE cool for my friend and I love him and I can't wait to see him again next month and hug him some more because dammit hugs never get old. (Next month we are going to Khaotic and we are doing FMA, Bleach, and Soul Eater.) Right now I am making Kid's Death Cannons for my friend Charles. I also just started a new term at school and I am drafting and sewing and producing a collection inspired by Black Butler. So the anime kick continues. (Currently watching: Baccano! and Gankutsuou.)

Shows I watch currently airing: Supernatural (duh), The Walking Dead (behind) Vampire Diaries (behind), Cult (behind), Castle, Fashion Star, The Following (behind), and The Voice (Behind)

Shows I am catching up on in season-by-season marathons: Justified (s3), Game of Thrones (s2), Spartacus (s3), Sons of Anarchy (s4), Sons of Guns (s3) ...

Am I forgetting anything? OH OMG THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A VERONICA MARS MOVIE YOU GUYS.

OH AND I ACTUALLY WATCHED SUPERNATURAL LIVE TONIGHT! O.o I haven't been able to in ages because of my night class schedule but tonight I did! And I thought it was so good, I love Madison Blaine she is a fantastic little actress, it was great having her back.

That's all for now, but if you're around stop in and say hi! *blows kisses*

Spent the night sitting alone in my house relaxing, LOL. First time all break! *fistpump* I've been having a great time hanging out every single night with every person imaginable, but it was nice to be in my own house for a few hours. :) Of course I'm a workaholic, so I spent the afternoon watching Ryan Seacrest specials on TV and working on next term's homework. *headdesk*

Doing a little experimentation with my color boards I made; rendering practice using my sketch tablet over template croquis.
