It's time to really clean out my cosplay closet. So here's the deal:

• Everything is SUPER cheap and prices include Shipping if I am sending it somewhere in the United States.

• The point of selling things so cheap is because they're old costumes, they're not perfectly seamed or finished and some costumes have missing parts, but it would be a shame to throw them out, so hopefully if I sell them for a low price they will go to a new home and you can bring it back to life!

• I include as many notes as possible in the description of the item, but if you need more information, don't hesitate to message me.

MOST ITEMS 30$Collapse )

Had a pretty beautiful day at work today;

(In case I haven't mentioned it before, I intern at a Wedding Photographers studio, doing photo editing and basically anything else people ask of me.)

Anyway today was beer and pizza for lunch day, and we played Backstreet Boys in the background, and we have discovered that there is a background actor in one of Britney Spears video's that scratches herself. Skip to 1:15 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0bPrt69rag&feature=related

Also, Katsucon looks like this for me.

Cut for progress pictures~Collapse )

Spending the weekend in Rochester to visit me friend Alex, who I love too much <3

It's Sunday now and I'll be heading back tomorrow morning. I can safely say I've had a very relaxing weekend. So far we didn't do much, but hang out, meet a lot of people, visit the campus and chill some more. I forced some bread and cheese on Alex's house mates, and craving it now soo much.

RIT is charming, I could see it being really awful if you actually live there/ go to school there, but for me it's been really charming. People are great, easy to talk to, and well.. I've been having fun making myself known to everyone I meet. There is so much production and work and talent that goes on in this school, it really makes me doubt FIT hardcore. It's not that we don't have the talent, it's more that we're really lenient on bullshit, and there's a lot of bullshit here in the City.

I really want to explore some film schools in the city and try to edge my way onto a set to help out. I feel a spark coming from it~

I don't know how I feel about LJ phasing out. Can I make a confession? I love reading my own blog. I'm sorry that sounds really pretentious and obnoxious but it's so true. I've never been good at keeping a diary but I feel like my LJ entries were always so natural to me. If, in the end, LJ does phase out, I will always go back.. and read my blogs over. I think in the end I will copy and paste every one of my entries and print them to put them as a safe keep.

Enough ridiculousness. On to personal update.

School started out kind of rough but I'm learning a lot already and expanding a bit. I'm actually really hating this semester. We have a photo journalism class, and that is definitely out of my element. As if I wasn't bad enough at approaching people, we have to find a subject we are genuinely interesIted in and photograph a person or people pertaining to that subject... and keep going back to document more on them. Arggg I'm so bad at this... However it's forcing me to get out of my comfort zone and learn to talk to people. I chose to photograph contortionists, and guess what, I made an awesome couple of contacts and I found a circus school in the City and I'm incredibly and inspired and amazed by this art <3 haven't photographed anyone yet, but it will come!

Some really cool things that happened to be between the beginning of september and now:

1) I contacted Charlene Kaye (who I discovered through a Darren Criss concert, if you don't know who she is, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtGx1ZmFK1g ) and she got back to me!!! We did a photoshoot and had so much fun and produced beautiful pictures x)

2) I GOT INTO POTTERMORE! And was sorted a Gryffindor. Do I need to say any more than that?

3) I actually have time to shoot for myself now! I've been shooting more Fashion and so far it's going super amazing. Made some great contacts and really was able to get along and have 90 % more fun and confidence during shoots than I ever had last year. I shot a BMG model called Jessica the other day, and it was absolutely fantastic~ Can check it out here, http://blanko.tumblr.com/post/10507519201/shot-jessica-elovsson-of-bmg-models-last

4) For NYCC, I got chosen to be part of the main Madoka group! I'll be working at ACP's booth with cool people giving out free things and being awesome~ I hope to see people there!

5) Going up to Rochacha next weekend to see my partner in life Aleexxxx <333 I'm wicked excited to take the train and visit abandoned houses and jump on student film sets at RIT~

6) Did I mention I'm a Gryffindor?

To me, the start of a new year commences September 1st. That's the time vacation finally stops, school finally starts up again, and there is the potential of a new fresh start. This year, even though I accomplished a lot and felt very successful, felt like a huge anti-climax.

I spoke better French than I ever have before and felt like I broke through my language barrier, which was always an issue in the past for me, but I felt extremely ignored and frankly quite depressed in France this year. And frankly, I feel like I lived hugely in my brothers shadows. Nobody should have to feel like they're second best, but I certainly did. A friend told me that my bro has a contagious laugh, that you automatically get attracted to him and listen to him when he speaks. How I wish I had that talent, but no. I always have to speak up or do something extra to make sure I'm heard.

I took better pictures than I ever have and gained a huge amount of knowledge in Photography, but I've never felt more like I wasn't looked at in the end. A lot of people praised me but what's the point if at the end of the year nobody actually says goodbye to me?

I got my first job and made a lot of money, but I didn't get to spend it like I wanted to.

Now this one really kills me- Last year for cons I was always running around doing shoots with strangers and trying so hard to expand and meet new people, and I did, after a shit ton of stress, the loss of 2 external hard drives and a lot of effort and money on my part. This year, I calmed down cause the stress wasn't what I wanted, and for that I feel like I didn't get to live out the adventure I always crave. I came to the hard conclusion that things don't ever just come to me as they do to many people who live around me. I've always had to work hard and stress for it. That's not a problem, in fact that's what people call character building and makes you a stronger person. However, this becomes a problem when you have to fight the same way to actually regain respect from people you have been close friends with since HighSchool, or remind people that though I don't have the same addictive personality as other folks, I still have a lot of value, and I shouldn't have to live on a 1 way street for me to prove that to others.

This year was great and all, but I had a constant battle within me that was either change myself to appeal to people, or find other people who I appeal to the way I am.

I'm making next year better for myself. I know I deserve better.
