I have a blog!I just started it. It has oooone post. You can read it if you like. it'll have more posts eventually.http://mountainsandvalleysmayquake.blogspot.com/
How long has it been?My loves, how long has it been since I've been dA active? It's been far too long.The fact of the matter is that I've been ignoring my dA a lot, because, as much as I hate to admit it, I've kind of left anime and manga and cosplay by the wayside. Not to say I don't still love it with all of my heart. It's just not a focus in my life, anymore. I don't have the time or the resources to make the costumes as I've gone down to college and am a full-time poor college kid. I'm probably not going to be able to get up to next Sakura next year and it breaks my heart a little bit.I'm still big on the photography, but since I don't have access to the cosplayers I used to, it's not that now. I'm going to get active again, I really am, but the focus of this dA is going to be switching from cosplay related things to what it really started out as so many years ago when I was a kid playing around with a camera and wanting to show the world my few pictures that I thought were good. Only now, I've got a

Life.So, it's that time again, when I'm like. The busiest person on Earth. Not really, but you know what I mean. It's senior year, which means school and college and theatre and singing and all sorts of fun little things keeping me busy. I haven't even been on dA for days. What is this?On top of all of my social stuff, my brother is home from college for a week and a half, and he's possibly the most distracting person ever. Seriously. Yesterday, he wanted me to play a single game of Magic: The Gathering with him. Three hours later, I realized I should stop playing and get some sleep. BOTHER THIS NONSENSE.But yeah. So that's my lame excuse for the lack of con journal and the inactivity in the coming...month and a half. I know it's not worth that much, but hey. I've uploaded like 8 things in the past weekish. So cut me a little slack. Hahah.Also, I'm hunched a little bit so I had my ear resting near my shoulder and I could hear the joint squeak as it moved. Weird.
KumoriconconconWHO'S BACK IN ACTION?! THIS CHICK IS.After like. 4 months of absolutely no action(I'm sorry, everyone! I didn't mean to!), I'm back, bearing a new costume and a bunch of new photography. So except some new stuff from me in the very near future. It'll be awesome.I'm sorry about the lack of activity, though. I've been really busy with work and all, and I haven't done anything remotely related to cosplay at all until like. a week ago. When I frantically kicked out an entire costume in like two seconds. So. Yeah. Just a quick update, as I'm about to go make pie with a friend and don't have time to do much right now. But yes, yes. Except new things. And a con update.
Kawaii KonI hit up Kawaii Kon for a day. Today, actually. It was pretty chill. It's like the Kumoricon of Hawaii, I guess. About the same size. Better guests, though. I think Kumori has a better artist's alley and exhibitor's hall.
So Sakura Happened.So Sakura happened. It was good. I saw like everyone every in the world, which was awesome. I really have a hard time posting long con entries, though. I don't know why. I just have a hard time writing down everything that happened, I guess. Kind of like how when people ask how it went I'm like "Uhhh. It was awesome. I did stuff. And saw lots of people. And a;lfkjas;ldf."But my con was awesome, so yeah. I took like 300 pictures, almost none of which were related to cosplay in any way shape or form. I'll upload a few of those that I like. My dad got a few hundred cosplay pictures that I'll upload to photobucket and link to here. So that'll happen eventually.I was really happy with how this con turned out, even though I had a severe lack of cosplay. It's just something to work on for next time, I suppose. I'm just glad I got to see all my people and hang out without having to worry about real life for awhile. Cons are just so good for the soul. Hahaha. Or for my soul, at least. I don't
An announcement and Sakura.So Sakura is like. No days away. I'm excited. It should be awesome this year. Lotsa fun people are going. I've got a good camera at my disposal. Things like that. My cosplay plans are set, right now. But that's where the announcement part comes in.As I'm sure some of you know, I'm planning on Simon and Sulu as my newest additions to my cosplays. I would also be rocking Joker.Due to a death in my family, there is a very high chance that I won't be able to finish either new costume. I know this probably isn't a big deal to anyone but myself, because it's both sad and disappointing, but I just thought I would let people know, in case they were really looking forward to something exciting.Worst comes to worst, I may not cosplay all three days. That's okay though. I don't need to cosplay to have fun, right?
Please Listen.I just got an email from a concerned parent. Her daughter has an account on DA, and apparently she copies and traces my drawings. I looked on her profile and confirmed that, yes, she did trace and gave minimal (sometimes no) credit. The reason her mother messaged me was because a few people were apparently sending her harsh messages asking her to give credit. She even got a few death threats.Listen...I'm going to say this all again because I guess it needs reiterating: When it comes to my art, I do not mind young artists copying or tracing my drawings in hopes of developing their skills, or because they are still learning the way of things. If you see someone posting a traced or heavily referenced drawing that does not mention the original picture, please DO NOT immediately jump to aggression. If something like this (art theft/style theft) really gets on your nerves, then I understand why you might be angry upon seeing it, but you must find the maturity to take a breath, and

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
