She always seems to capture his personality PERFECTLY in her drawings of him!

Oh, and while working on my new costume I learned a very valuable lesson. Don't paint with spray paint or floral spray outside when the humidity is high. Instead of spraying out in a nice mist, the paint will dribble out as a liquid as it hits the moisture in the air...and sadly...it will ruin your project! I never had that problem before, so I had no idea! A few days later, when it was less humid, I tried again, and it worked out perfectly. DERP!

Sorceress Edea Otakon 2011 by ~pixiekitty on deviantART
I also have some more photos up on Deviant Art of my Edea, so you can browse through those too if you feel the urge. I'm still working on getting my website updated with many more great photos from some awesome photographers! I also just recently fixed some coding issues on my site, so now it actually looks normal in Internet Explorer! (I designed it using Google Chrome).
I've already started working on some new cosplay stuff instead of updating my website with my current stuff like I should be. XD

I colored a white wig by hand with Sharpies, made the ears, wings, and cutie mark necklace. Everything else is bought.
Both photos were taken by Psychoticsmiley at Otakon 2011.

I am SO glad i'm done with this stupid thing. I was getting flustered! No more hours of painting little details while watching Ancient Aliens on Netflix! Now I get to hand sew feathers while watching Ancient Aliens on Netflix instead. JOYS OF COSPLAY..GO!
But YAY, now it has that weird pointy design thing on the back of the helmet that I could never seem to get before! Can't see it very well from this angle though!

23. Your most expensive cosplay
24. Your most comfortable cosplay and most uncomfortable cosplay
Ugh the way this thing makes your head and neck feel after a few hours...! I love me some hardcore doses of Advil!
25. The cosplay you put the most effort into
Well definitely Sorceress Edea since I've re-made it so many STUPID times.
Also this thing due the amount of planning and engineering I did:
26. Any unfinished costumes? Will you ever finish them?
oh man yes! I have several costumes that are laying around my sewing room that need to be made!
I don't know if i'll ever finish Alex Rowe from Last Exile for Josh. I got really bored of it...even though it's almost done! I really just need to suck it up and complete it!
I also have all the supplies for or have started on these:
It's pretty ridiculous! lol
27. How many wigs do you own? Which is your favourite?
omg a lot. I have a wig addiction, and I have a ton I haven't even worn. No idea of an exact count.
28. Where do you work on your cosplays and where do you store them when they’re done?
I have a sewing room dedicated to my costume stuff. I store parts in various places: some in my costume closet, some in the basement, some in the shed (depending on their size)
29. What is your favourite cosplay item? (eg. a pair of shoes, a wig)
My ex-mode Griever mask! I'm so proud of him, and I LOVE HIM!! Like a child, lol.
30. Describe cosplay in three words. No more, no less
expensive, time consuming, artistic

11. Something cosplay-related that you will never do (eg. crossplay, cosplay from a certain series)
I will never cosplay from Naruto, Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, Panty and Stocking, Hetalia. I will never crossplay - I'm too girly!
12. Your cosplay idol.
Little guy's got MAD talent man!
13. Your cosplay specialty (ie. something that seems to apply to a large amount of your cosplays, it could be a specific series, or a common feature in their appearance, such as glasses)
I love crafting things from clay and painting them! I think that's my strongest talent. I'm also pretty good at altering shoes for cosplay. I'm also starting to work with resin, so hopefully I will good with that too!
14. Your cosplay-making habits (eg. singing while working on cosplay)
I like to have science shows playing on Netflix when I work on stuff. I especially love anything about space, extraterrestrial beings, or the universe. I also like to eat Cheetos, but they make my fingers cheesy and I have to wash them all the time. It's sort of a dumb idea.
15. Your least favourite thing about cosplay
I HATE to style and cut wigs. I also hate custom coloring them.
16. Do you belong to any cosplay groups? If so, what are they?
No not really. Unless Josh and I count as a group, lol.
17. What events have you cosplayed to?
Tons of conventions over the years! Too many to list here. I have also cosplayed at Best Buy with Josh to win a free copy of FF13, and for a cosplay fashion show at the Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival.
18. What is your best cosplay memory?
Josh in Seifer proposing to me while I was wearing my Sorceress Ultimecia costume at Otakon!
19. What is your worst cosplay memory?
Falling down the stairs in a parking garage at Otakon 2003 on sunday. I sprial fractured the upper bone in my arm and messed up my elbow! I had to be taken away by ambulance (my first and thankfully only ambulance ride)! My arm was so bad. It's actually still not completely straight.
20. Have you won any cosplay awards?
21. Show us your best cosplay derp photo!
22. Have you worn cosplay in a regular situation? (eg. at school, to work)
Heck no! For the most part, my hobby is separate from normal life.

1. Your first cosplay:
Check out that awesome plastic shotgun! I LOVED that thing. I was so proud of this stupid costume! I had no idea what I was doing with it though. <3 Still love Claire Redfield!
2. How many costumes have you done?
I just counted 57 on my website, but I may have miscounted since it's after work and. I'm brain dead.
3. Your most recent cosplay.
Mostly my own website a,d cosplay facebook, Cosplay Blogger thing, sometimes on Twitter. Certainly not LJ much since I am too busy/lazy/boring to update it as much as I should.
4. Your cosplay communities; where do you go to talk about cosplay?
5. Blatant self plug! Link us to your cosplay page, be it dA, ACP, Coscom, whatever!
Cosplay Blog - Already thinking of deleting this stupid thing. I don't really keep up with updating it already! 0_o
6. Your favourite cosplay (that you have done)
Being 100% re-made AGAIN for Otakon. I'm nutzo with this thing! I like to apply my new skills on it to see how I've grown.
7. The character you have cosplayed that is most similar to you (if none that you have cosplayed, then one that you will cosplay)
8. Your cosplay plans for the rest of the year (if you have no more for this year, then do next year!)
9. The dream cosplay that might just happen
It used to be Ultimecia way back when I first started out (also re-making it for Katsucon 2012).
Now it's THIS:
Hoping to make it next year sometime!
10. The dream cosplay that will never happen
Probably this because I can't find the damn fabric! I really don't want to paint hexagons all over it by hand!

This thing is making me bitter! sorta lol! It's taking forever, and it's not even near complete!
It's made of various random things: wire, newspaper, Crayola Model Magic, Resin, Wonderflex, polystyrene plasic, cereal box cardboard, Rigid Wrap, and mostly Paper Clay.
I think all of the Paper Clay dust from sanding made me sick. ;_; It flared up my allergies, and now I feel icky! My fault for not wearing a dust mask!

Anyways! Sick aside, it was an awesome trip! I brought back lots of yummy snacks that I got attached to while there. Digestives, Hob Nobs, and Mcvities Penguin Biscuits = <3 When I run out, I'll have to turn to my friends there to feed my addiction! lol
We were part of a really great photo shoot with some awesome Final Fantasy XIII cosplayers, and i'm really looking forward to getting those photos back - They looked amazing on the LCD screen! The Masqeurade and Kita's Got Talent were so fun to watch. I really enjoyed the variety of entries. Judging the costume contest was a pleasure, we saw some amazing cosplays!
Here are the event photos that I have so far:
I didn't end up wearing my Miku dress for the prom on friday sadly, but I did wear my other new Miku costume on friday.
It's Miku from the song "Magnet" in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd
