Firstly, a big thanks to the new watchers now following my page, I hope you'll enjoy my work ^^!
It's been a few months since my last update, I seem to have gotten a bit slack with updating ^^". Though I actually have quite a bit of stuff to upload and talk about in this journal, so I hope you have a good read (with lots of pictures 8D!!)
------------ Gold Coast Supanova
My convention season this year kicked off with Supanova last weekend down at the Gold Coast. I shared a hotel room with all of these lovely fellows c: -->
The only disadvantage with our hotel was that it lacked internet to play gamus and go on social networking websites 8'C
Taking a break from cosplay competitions for a while, it was lovely to just walk around the whole weekend not having to prepare for or psyche myself up for any upcoming performances or judgments on stage.Saturday
Spent the day walking around with ~xxpuffy
with a porcupine on my head.
It was lovely seeing so many YGO fans about that day, from the hardcore YGO gamers, to the parents, other YGO cosplayers and even young children who were very fond of card games c:.
Funny parts of the day:
- "do you have yugi's actual deck in there? did you want to duel?"
==> I just had a Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl cards and a starter deck Kaiba I found lying around the house. Good enough xD.
- "OMG your cards don't have sleeves WTF you doing??"
==> I'm so pro at card games I even kept my cards in a shoebox instead of folders 8DSunday
Spent the say walking around with ~xxpuffy
as fairies 8D!
Another great day seeing so many fans of SAO around! There were heaps of other SAO cosplayers around on the day before, but there weren't as many on Sunday :c. Had a great shoot with
in the afternoon, got some lovely shots (will upload soon!), played rock band on stage and won a copy of the game (which we gave away cause no wii lol), and had a lovely korean dinner which was 50m walk from our hotel door lol xD.
And some hotel shots once we got back home c:
It was a lovely convention weekend, had lots of fun c:

After the weekend and lack of frequent updates, I decided to make a facebook page to share some of my stuff
! If you have a facebook, please feel free to check out my page and follow my work if you're interested c:.

These dA journals take a good hour or so to write up, so I figure i'd be more motivated to update my progress with short posts on facebook xD. I'll also be making a bunch of selling posts, prize giveaways every now and then, and be much more frequent in replying to posts, so add us there to check out more of my work or even just have a chat c:. Cosplay Suggestions
Believe it or not, i'm starting to run out of ideas of costumes that catch my attention to cosplay =o. I've nearly exhausted my childhood animu list, and I haven't really been playing all too many new games or watching anime lately. If there are any cosplay costumes you think you'd like to see me do, please feel free to suggest it here! 8D
Now that one set of convention costumes are done and dusted, i've just been doing a massive tidy up of my room and around the house lately X_X"! I'm finally able to sit down and get drawing again
! Anyway, hope to catch up with everyone again soon, i've been holed up at home a lot lately ><"! Until next time, ciao!
