Wow how do I still have watchers?? hahaha I'm so terrible at updating this account now Dx I do still check messages and notes though. I just don't have any new drawings to give you guys OTL

In terms of cosplays though, I've got a couple lined up :) With Anime North over, me and the SutekiGo are hoping to have a couple photoshoots with our latest cosplays: Female Nintendo and Final Fantasy girls. Many of you have probably already looked at the journals we posted for AN and got a chance to see those costumes. I'm so happy with the way they turned out, even though they were all so much work! Final Fantasy seriously just tries to screw cosplayers over. Eyelets on the back of boots, who does that????

Next up: Merida from Brave!! I loved that movie so much! I went into it thinking I'd enjoy it, but it really exceeded my expectations. I immediately wanted to cosplay her hehe It'll probably only be a Halloween costume, but I'm still pretty excited to make/wear it. I just ordered myself two wigs yesterday and I'm super excited for them to come in. But man, wefting them together and curling them is going to be so tedious D: Ahh what we do for cosplay.

I've also got another costume on the go. I'm making myself a Capitol-esque outfit to wear to Catching Fire when it comes to theatres next November. I just love the Hunger Games books <3 <3 I drew out a fairly simple Capitol outfit, full of ridiculously sized clothing and fabulously bright colours x) Bought myself a beautiful green wig to go with it. I've already got the material for this one, it's just a matter of making it now. Ohoho I'm excited x)

As for upcoming cons, we're going to ConBravo at the end of this month. I think we're wearing our Nintendo cosplay for that one. We're also going back to Youmacon at the beginning of November. I'm really looking forward to that one since we missed out on it last year. We'll likely be wearing our Final Fantasy cosplay there. And maybe a simpler past cosplay for that Friday, who knows.

All of these new cosplays for me are being funded by my new job :D Well, fairly new. I started part-time in March, and they hired me on as a full-time employee at the beginning of May. I'm working at a local newspaper, which is pretty lucky, since I wanted to get into the publishing/editing world. And it's so awesome working five minutes from home. Most of my past jobs have been half an hour away, but now I can go home for lunch, check on my dog, pick up food in town... ah the convenience! I'm actually typing this as I work, well, as I 'work' I guess lol Wednesdays are super slow for me, since we go to press on Tuesdays, but it's kind of relaxing too. I'm just happy to have full-time employment so I can spend more on cosplays and get vacation pay for cons hehehe

This turned out to be a longer update that I thought! I've got to actually do work now though xP I hope everyone's having a good summer so far!

It's so awesome to hear from you! What's it been a year? lol I'm glad to hear you've gotten employment and are using your sparkly English degree!! I'm still whiling away the hours working two jobs so I can save money and go to Humber next year! I really want to get into the publishing industry! Something with graphic design, or at the very least editing books... at this point anything that uses my English degree lol.
I've been slowly but surely pulling together the threads of a novel I've been concocting for the last 4 years. It's actually making it onto paper rather than being something that's floating around my head, which feels good. Do you have facebook? Or at least e-mail? That way we can talk more often.

It's been a long time, that's for sure!

Yep, I was pretty lucky with this job :) Idk if I want to be here forever, but it's great stepping stone. What are you planning on taking in Humber?

Good for you on that novel! It's nice to have the time to write it all out, eh?

Lmao right now I haven't had time to work on it, my friend is down from Saskatchewan for the summer so we've been hanging out, catching up, that sort of thing.
I'm hoping to get into Humber for their publishing program, I'm not sure where I want to go in the industry yet, but I know I want to do something with books for the rest of my life. Go books!!
Maybe I'll see you around next summer lol. I hope you're successful with finding something more permanent! I know I'm eager to get into a 'real' job!

Whoa I bet you guys are enjoying yourselves :)

I find the industry is so overwhelming @_@ There are so many different kinds of editors/publishers. Where are we supposed to start!? I hope you find something though! You just need one foot in the door and you're set x)

Yes it's been quite the summer!
That's great!! I really hope there's something out there for me! I'd be happy to start anywhere, get a little taste and if it's not for me move onto the next thing, I'm flexible.
So far I think everything's moving in a positive directions! :)
How was your summer? Do any cons?
AerynLeafy Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
That's great! :)

Summer was great x) But seemed too short. My friends and I went to a couple cons and had a blast at each of them, like always. Maybe I'll prob some pics of my new outfits on this account eventually. I'm just super excited about finishing up Merida from Brave so I can post pics of her x)

omg I can't wait to see you as Merida! That would be way cool! (Sorry it took so long for me to respond, I don't have the time to come on here as often as I used to.)
Actually pretty soon I may be closer to where you are, I'm going to the GTA for college! I got accepted! I cannot wait!
AerynLeafy Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
I don't have any good pics yet, but hopefully in the spring when things are green again I'll be able to get some good shots x)

Wow that's so exciting! Good job! And good luck! Enjoy the GTA! :D
