      ...means a lot of work!

      So....guess which one I'm going to be! Guess!

      Preeeeetttyyy!

      It will be my first crossplay. I just don't pull of men well haha. But the one I am doing is super pretty...he is so pretty it is unfair. ;) I am most excited as one of my really good friends and the best roomie ever will also be cosplaying from this with me!

      In other news today, I didn't get a four day pass for Comic Con, or Friday and Saturday tickets. :( But I'll be there Thursday and Sunday...and this year I'll just buy next year's pass at the con. Did any of you get CC tickets?

    • Wow, it has been forever.

      Well, I still don't have a working computer, but I do have a lovely room mate who lets me use hers sometimes. :) So I figured I would update you all as to the past several months...
      In August and September I worked a whole lot on all of the costumes for Halloween Horror nights at Universal. We made around 500 costumes I think. In October I moved into a new apartment with a new room mate, and her dog. I really like both my new place and new roomie. <3 Also during the month of October I worked the Halloween Horror Nights event repairing costumes and making quick last minute pieces etc. Then in November we made all of the costumes for Grinchmas. I was also in my first wedding. One of my best friends from back home got married, it was a beautiful wedding. And the bridesmaid dresses I made turned out great, so that was nice too! :) Then in December I worked the Grinchmas event.
      For the past two weeks I took down the area in the park where we worked for HHN and Grinchmas, and organized costumes, and destroyed costumes we weren't keeping. And made new corsets for the Can Can dancers in the park. So that is pretty much the past several months in a nut shell. Nick, my boyfriend, has been in Afghanistan the whole time, and I hear from him occassionally. However, it has been several weeks, as someone on base was illegally downloading, and someone freaked out about that and they disabled the internet. Which is incredibly stupid. So now I don't know when I will hear from him next...
      Now I have no work for the next several months as there are no events going on at work. So in addition to looking for work and commissions, and making my own costume designs and cosplays for the up coming year, I am cleaning and organizing, painting, and doing some decorating in my apartment. All on an intense budget, as I have to figure out how to pay rent and bills etc. too! Hopefully I can find some temporary jobs and commission work until April or May, when I start work again! :)
      Here are a few of the costumes I made at work...in no particular order...

      My laptop isn't working right, so I haven't been on much lately and probably won't be until I figure out what to do computer wise...I hope all of you are doing well! I am staying busy with work and a ton of personal projects and costumes...
      Until later,

    • Mixed emotions

      9 years ago

      RosaSpinaque

      So Comic Con is this coming week, and I have mixed emotions about it. I love Comic Con, it is my favorite convention. Every year that I have gone my boyfriend has been there with me though, and tomorrow he leaves for three weeks in the desert for a "practice Afghanistan" basically. So not only will he not be at CC with me, but I don't get to talk to him at all either while he is gone. Then in the beginning of Sept. he leaves for his deployment. So then I won't really get to talk to him for a year. We have gone long periods of time without seeing each other before, as most of our time dating has been long or at least some sort of distance. But not getting to talk to him will be really different. I am sure I will talk more about his leaving and being gone later. Anyway, he won't be at CC with me, and neither will any of the friends that have gone with me in the past. So while I am excited because I love CC, it might be a kind of lonely year for me there. And the gathering that I was planning, RvBCA seems to have hit some major snags, so it won't be what I hoped it would...but in good news for CC it seems my brother and his friends got tickets and are coming down for CC, so it will be cool to hang out with him a bit. Also, he commissioned me to make him a costume to wear, he will be cosplaying as a psycho from Borderlands. So since I have been working on that pretty last minute, I won't have the time to finish all the cosplays I was planning on wearing this year. So it is just Katana from the Outsiders this year for me! Black Widow and GCS Poison Ivy will wait. So are any of you still planning on making it to CC? And if you are, if you want to meet up all let me know! Well, back to armor making etc...
      TTFN,

      So, remember how I mentioned I was part of a group that was entered in the Midnight Tea competition at AX this past weekend? Well, guess what?!? WE WON FIRST PLACE!!! It was so much fun getting to do this with my friends, one of whom is on this site, the lovely Alexiel. Brie, Lecta (Alexiel), and I had fun together as the female gothic lolita versions of Lavi, Kanda, and Allen, from the series D. Gray Man. We worked really hard and it was nice to see our table and costumes received very well by everyone there. :) I made our tea pot into Tim Campy from the series, and despite his wings cracking a little on the way to the convention center, he held up quite nicely! I will never forget our Midnight Tea experience, especially the moments right after we received our award! (Alexiel, you know what I am talking about...Haha, I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard I cried and smeared all my makeup...)

      The characters we female lolified..

      Also, big props to anyone who ever enters a con masquerade, because we went up on stage after the masquerade when all the awards are given out to receive ours...and there are a lot of people in those audience seats, and the lights are rather blinding...

      Hello, fellow RvBCA member!

      It's June already (holy crap!), so we are gearing up for another Comic-con weekend meetup.

      We are planning something along the lines of a bonfire, so EVERYONE can come, regardless of whether or not you were lucky enough to snag a Con badge before the website crashed for the 30th time. smiley0.gif

      If you are interested in attending a RvB meetup in San Diego and meeting your lovely rooster teeth friends, come to the RvBCA group and check out the latest news!

      Thanks and hopefully we'll see you in July!

      No actually, but I've watched a movie called Beautiful (I know of the drama You're Beautiful but I'm also aware both are totally different). I'm really behind on all my K- and J-dramas, I feel terrible. But I love them so. I have a list of like 37 dramas (including You're Beautiful) that I still need to watch ><

      But I also see you like Mucc, which makes me happy because a lot of people who say they like Jrock don't know a thing about them. So are you like my new soulmate? smiley12.gif lol jk

      We all missed you at RvBCA, even though it was really only three people, we all wanted you to show up so the party would have the OG members. It was only in the last half-hour that we finally said, "Alright, she must not be showing up" up until then, we were hoping, a LOT! Hope you had fun doing what you were doing, enjoy you're costume making! Hugs! smiley0.gif
