Looks like I went MIA again for a little while!

Last I updated was in October! Goodness that will not do!
The months following were very hectic and busy.
Things will continue to be a bit crazy for me, but I will do my best to manage my time better.

Despite having been on "Con Off Season" the past several months,
I have been diligently working hard to get this year's costumes underway!

Already it is March!
Time really does fly by!

This year I'm working on costumes a little differently than I have in the past years.
This year I have a list of set costumes I would like to make and when completed will be debuted at
the closest con date upon completion!

This really gives me time to work on costumes efficiently and with minimum stress!
Of course I have a loose idea on which costume I would like to have at a certain con, but the deadline isn't set in stone.
More costumes will be added to the list below the more I complete the current ones I am working on.

My convention list is becoming all the more solid now as well!
The list is located down below for conventions that I am certain to attend this year!
No doubt, more conventions will be added to the list as plans settle, as well as the costume list.

This year, I am going to continue to work hard!

Already I have been able to knock down several costumes on the list and have been steadily
working on at least 2 costumes at a time, sometimes 3.
It's back and forth work, but at least I am able to keep myself at a steady productive rate.

This DA hiatus is officially over!
I have a lot of catching up to do.
Regular updates should be starting up again!
I'm going to do my best to at least designate one day a week to update here before continuing on my work.
(My schedule tends to be very busy!)


For more frequent updates and a look into the current "in progress" pieces I am working on,
please check my creative Facebook.

  Facebook.

I tend to update that pretty regularly now. Since DA is more for my finished pieces of work~

There are no conventions I'm attending anytime soon. It looks to be A-kon will be my next!
In the meantime, I will be diligently working on my costumes to get them completed before the convention dates.
Lots of busy work for me~!

Well that's it! Stay tuned for more creations!

Until next time~! :heart:
For now, I'm back for sure this time! :)

+Dislikes+: Liars, Cheaters, Back-stabbers, Disrespect, Manipulators, Abuse, Unnecessary Drama, Two-faced Individuals, Sharks, and Olives

+Personality+:
I am an androgynous, laid back yet energized person with a dream of becoming a Fashion Designer. Unable to get formal training, I took it upon myself to teach myself in various areas and build up my skills through relentless hours of practice. I am self-taught in Tailoring, Designing, Patternmaking, Dressmaking, and recently Jewelry making .

I tend to be a little more introverted and shy than extroverted. Meaning I'm generally quiet around people and those who I do not know. I'm always thinking and analyzing, as well as observing. Most people would say I'm more the calm, quiet, collected type with a bit of mystery.

To those that I do open up to, I can be talkative, funny, and charming, and wear my heart on my sleeve around them. I do enjoy having fun~. I am insightful, logic comes easily to me as I do enjoy organization and planning things in advance along with considering all available options.

I am compassionate as well, and like animals and plants. Because I'm quiet and shy, I feel like not many people really see the depth in my personality. Please don't be intimidated. I'm really just a friendly old soul and gentleman at heart. :heart:

In a nutshell: Laid back, energized, balanced, zen, deep, logical, and compassionate.

Current Residence: Texas, USA
Favourite genre of music: Baroque, Video Game Soundtracks, Movie Soundtracks, Gothic, Classical, Techno, J-Rock, Ambient, K-pop, New Age
Favourite photographer: My Buddy Ashley J ~ ;P
