Animazement is in less than a week now.  
As far as new costumes go:

Flame Princess:
- dress = about 99%: I've got to adjust the shoulder a tiny bit and I'm done
- wig = 50% : I've only got a little more to do and I'll be finished :)
- makeup = 100% : I've done tests and I think it's going to work well :)
- shoes = 100%

Jadesprite
- dress = about 99% : some minor fitting on the arms
- wig = 100% : I didn't have to do anything but trim the bangs
- makeup = 100% : tests done and they looked good :)
- shoes = 100% : I need to paint them, and they'll be finished
- ears = 50%

I'll be wearing Jadesprite Friday afternoon/night and Saturday night.
Flame Princess will be most of the day Saturday. I'll be in cosplay chess with it :)

If I can find them, I'll wear Sophitia and Team Magma as well. Moving and losing things really sucks.

If anyone else is going, let me know! We can meet or something :)
It's been almost a year since I've been to a convention, and as of today, it's 24 days till I'll be at Animazement again.

I've been working on the two new costumes I'm making for it, and I'm nearly done with the sewing parts.

Flame Princess:
- dress = about 50% : I've been fighting with some darts and pulling in my fabric :(
- wig = 0% : I think I'm going to try to dye it, as well as style it into that crazy updo...
- makeup = 100% : I've done tests and I think it's going to work well :)
- shoes = 50% : all they need is to be painted

and a secret costume!
- dress = about 90% : some minor fitting on the arms and a little handsewing and I'm golden
- wig = 100% : I didn't have to do anything but trim the bangs
- makeup = 100% : tests done and they looked good :)
- shoes = 50% : I need to paint them, and they'll be finished

I guess I can count in my boyfriend's Monster hunter costume, and I'll say it's a big fat 0%
He's been making pepakura files and unfolding the armor he wants to do, but all he's gotten finished is the head... I'm not sure he'll finish the one he wants to do by Animazement at this rate. I'm trying to get him to do the Froggi armor, which is like a cowboy, but he's been overthinking what the fabric should be... aaaagh

Anyway, if anyone will be at Animazement, feel free to say hi if you see me!

Cosplay plans for Animazement so far:
??? in the morning + my secret costume on Friday afternoon/night
Adventure Time in the morning + ??? Saturday afternoon/night
??? Sunday

I can't find my dress for Sophitia, so I don't even know if I'll have that this time, which sucks. I've only worn it two times :/ If I can find my dress, I'll probably wear that Friday or Saturday.
If I can find my and my boy friend's Team Magma costumes, we'll probably wear those on Sunday.

I kind of want to do something simple for my boyfriend and myself as a couple, but I'm drawing blanks...

Any ideas?
Thank you everyone who looked at my page because of the DD! It was really surprising, and I thought I had a glitch in my messages until I found out that I had gotten a DD!

I'll reply to as many as I can, but I won't be able to reply to everyone, so Thank you all for looking and faving my cosplay!
Don't forget that :iconpenguinluv4ever: was my partner, and we both worked equally on the Weeping Angels, so give her some credit too!
I'm thinking of what I really want to try to make this year.

So far I'm going to Animazment and Dragon*Con, possibly Metrocon.

> I want to make a Monster Hunter armor, at least by D*C

> I am on the fence about Fi (Skyward Sword)
> I am on the fence about Melfina / Gene for me / bf (Outlaw Star)
> I am on the fence about Flame Princess (Adventure Time)

What should I axe?
  • Mood: Stumped
I just don't get it. I read quite a bit of it, to not really like it. All of my ffriends that like it say that I should read to Act 5, which is thousands of pages in. Why on Earth would I read a thousand pages of something that I am just not enjoying?

All I see in photos from cons now are Homestuck trolls, with splotchy makeup and lumpy horns.

Please explain.
I'm back... again. I come around, talk a little while, and don't post for a year. I think I'm going to try to change that, seriously this time.

Ok, I know when I was 15, I loved to take photos of cats. My most favorited/viewed photo is a handful of kittens: kilayi.deviantart.com/art/New-…
I'm going to move all of the really old stuff into scraps or something, or hide it in a folder to restart this account for cosplay.

Kilayi is obviously a screen name that I've been using for quite some time.

I don't know if I should start a new account as Kilayi-cosplay or what to clean up my stuff from, well, a much younger/unskilled/naive time.

For now, I'll start uploading some of my costumes until I decide what I'm going to do about all my old stuff. I am not that person anymore, and I can see where 99% of my gallery is garbage. There may be 1 or 2 things that are borderline OK, but that's pretty much it.

I'm also going to upload work from my university work. I graduated in May, so I'll just be uploading what I like best. I need to get back into working more, as I haven't really worked a lot since May. I was away at Disney World working their internship, and honestly had no extra time for anything. Plus, who wouldn't want to go to a theme park every day if it were free?

If anyone still watches me, talk to me, give me some suggestions. Let me know you're still there.

Thanks guys
  • Mood: Questionable

I seem to only update once a year....

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 9, 2010, 1:04 PM




So, it's nearly been a year since my last journal update. I've done a lot of new work since then, and also just got back from 3 weeks in India.

I feel different now, maybe it's the jet-lag, but maybe it's me. This fall, I will be entering in my final year at ECU (let's hope it is actually my final year this time, haha) and I'll be sure to upload some new stuff sometime.

I doubt that anyone still watches or cares about my work, but if you do, could you post something of encouragement?
I may actually upload something if you do, :P

  • Mood: Excited
  • Listening to: air conditioning
  • Playing: hooky
  • Mood: Excited
  • Listening to: my peaceful apartment ^_^
  • Watching: Food Network :o
  • Playing: Fallout 3 >_>
  • Eating: frugally
  • Drinking: lots of kool-aid
So This is the first time I've really been on DA for a good while...

I have done a lot of new art (art school will do that to a person...) and if my really crappy internet connection will allow it, I'll try to upload some of it.

Sorry if I haven't commented on your stuff like I used to, of if I didn't thank you for a fave or a +watch, I do appreciate it, but I have over 1,000 Deviations and 600 messages to sift through  D:

For anyone who cares, I've been accepted into Textile Design, and actually have no idea for what to do in the future. :/
I would be awesomely happy if I could just be a costuming assistant or something, someone else designing everything who lets me make it : D That would be the bee's knees XD

But seriously, I have thought of taking on commissions of cosplays in the future, so if anyone is seriously interested, shoot me an email, I may or may not be able to make it, but I'll try my best!

(I'm totally dying to make myself a Fallout jumpsuit and also the Ice Climbers from SSB: Brawl, they're the first thing I'll make when I have the funds! <3 )


All in all, I have no idea if anyone still cares to see my art, or see my journals, let me know if you do ;)

I'll get back on this networking thing, I think I can make it work again, lol

Well, things are going. Nothing spectacular here.
The semester is almost done, I have a lot to do, blah blah.


I found this in a friends journal, and I thought I'd give it a go.

STEP ONE
Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


1. Reef by Scubazoo. It's a big coffeetable book about coral reefs and the beautiful sea creatures in them. I looked through it at the bookstore and got so many ideas from it....

2. An R4 adapter for my DS. Basically I can download and play whatever games I want.

3. a Wii. Who doesn't want one?

4. a card or 2. I never get any mail D:

5. fabric for my Mudkip pjs or Officer Jenny cosplay. Pretty much sums that one up.

6. I'd love more time in the day, but no one can help me on that one.

7. Also, I'd love some good karma/luck to come my way. I've had some bad juju lately.

Someone else can have my other 2 wishes. I don't ever really ask for much. Or just cash. You can never have too much of that.

Well. I move back into school on Saturday.
I haven't done much of anything all summer.

I haven't been on DA to update either. I always lurk around, reading the journals of my friends, even if I don't comment.
I also removed all the faves I got, so if I didn't personally thank you like I normally do, I'm sorry.
I let everything pile up and I don't feel like going thru them now. :/
I did go and thank all the friend watches though (Thete were like 3 :B)

so here it is if I didn't thank you:
THANK YOU!

I beat Pokemon Diamond earlier this week though, and I finally have the National Pokedex open! Yay!

I haven't really packed... which is bad.
I've been stealing wireless from someone in my neighborhood, by sitting in my front yard in a lawn chair  XD
How funny.
And hot. In fact, I'm outside right now O_o And lets see what weather.com says Asheboro's current temp is....it's 93 degrees! XD

I haven't updated much, but I drew some Harry Potter chibi crack before the seventh book came out. I never scanned them, because I am lazy :o

Also, I got a new camera (Abbie, you aren't supposed to know this, and don't tell Nana)~!
I'm going to update with some unedited pics in a little bit.

Also, if anyone is on Gaiaonline, I'd like if you could go to my thread and make me an avvie using my junk... :B

I saw Stardust yesterday. Being a Neil Gaiman fan, I had to. It was a lot differnt than the book, but I liked it a lot nonetheless.
It had a lot of the backstory cut out, and a couple characters changed/omitted. Robert DeNiro's character is hilarious!
I think they left out some of the backstory info, such as the thing about the Babylon candle, for people that have read the book to know... at least that is my guess.

Any one else seen it?

And that's because of the lack of a camera. D:

The 3 figure drawing portraits that I uploaded were chosen as some of the best work from my class, so my professor took the pictures and posted them on Blackboard for us.
Thanks Dorsey! Now I can share my nudes with everyone :B

But anyways, I've been doing things, I just don't ahve a way to photo them.


But it doesn't seem to make a difference either way, does it?

And why doesn't DA have a "sick" emoticon?

It seems that I only update this on my holidays.


And I can't seem to love anything on this account more than my zombie pics :heart:


I deleted a whole mess of fave notifications that I didn't have the time to reply to. So THANKS if you faved something! :heart:

Also, it seems that kitties are more popular than zombies or anything else by far, and that makes me sad :(

My zombie makeup took far more time than those kitty pics, and way more thought. Overall, I think that the makeup>kitty pics!

Anyways, Christmas is near! New Years too!
That means lots of stress and money to be spent D:

I wish everything was a cool and fun as Halloween XD

This is getting pretty random now O_O

I'm going to update with a pic of my  Drawing Final now, for the record it was my only A in the class, horray!
