Kurama--Babe's Profile Picture
Kurama Babe
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
My name is Kurama Babe. I'm a well known, plus sized cosplayer from Minnesota. I've been cosplaying since 2004, done over 30 cosplays and been to 22 cons. I seem very outgoing and love to talk and hang out but, in reality, I'm actually quite shy. Winner of AnimeIowa's 2013 MVB award.
Hey everyone!!! Hope everyone is doing well :heart: Stay safe for the upcoming weekend while out and about (Friday the 13th and Valentine's the next day).

Real Life: I now have a fully functioning tripod ^.^ I got it from my coworker over the summer when I helped him move, but it was missing the release plate. So all I could really do was set my camera on top when the tripod was straight and level. But, now with the release plate, I can screw it down and not worry about angled pics anymore <3 Thank you to everyone that helped me get the info I needed.
Work has been up and down lately. This week has been especially slow for work. I might actually see a weekday off for the first time this winter. I'm surprised at how much I've still been working, considering this time last year I was struggling to make rent.
Looking to scrub my room clean. I have shoes I never packed away that are in a pile on my floor, tables and shelves overflowing with stuff, a dresser that never got packed correctly when I put things in it, closet space that needs to be organized and clothing that needs to be looked through as I have no room for the stuff I recently purchased. Don't know when I will do this, as I want to make it an all day thing (breaking it up into chunks will make me lose motivation when I have to get back to it) and weekends when I'm home are time for me to relax.
Got a date for V-day! Well, not really a 'date' date. She's a friend that never really gets to go out anymore and really doesn't have other friends, so I offered to go out and do stuff with her on that day if she was free. I haven't been on a platonic date in a while and it feels nice to get out and look nice.
Finished my annual purging, so I'm pretty well done with that. Now I have to play catch up XP

Geekdom: Tiger & Bunny and Harvest Moon as per usual. Lagrange pulled at my chest for a while after finishing season 2 and I just watched a movie called Colorful that made me cry like a baby XP

Cons: Detour is about a month and a half away and I'm starting to get some anxiety over things. Had some issues happen that make me worried about how my con will go, got some cosplays I'm worried about finishing in time, commissions for wigs, music and jewelry I need to have done and, as most people do, having enough money to last the whole weekend.

Cosplay: Got some upgrades done to Kevin and Toboe, got wigs for a secret cosplay and Makoto, got some pieces for the secret cosplays and new glasses for Mary. My cosplay list is constantly changing as I watch new stuff and don't feel as connected to others I wanted to do. I added a new secret cosplay recently and this has got to be the fastest I have ever finished a cosplay. I just have to get some accessories, a top, dye the wig and it's done. Seishun likely won't be done in time for the con, my other secret cosplays are creeping along, slowly but surely.
After Detour, I'm looking to start/finish Yamato, Makoto and a new outfit for Kevin. We'll see how that goes, as Yamato has the same issues I have been having with Miaka and is also dependent on my GF doing Kouya.

Art: At a standstill for the cover of Trial & Error and haven't even started my year recap, as I was so busy with my purge and other things. Thinking of taking my older Hetalia fics off hiatus and get going on those again. I've been extremely inactive with posting things and I have a severe backlog, but my brain runs funny and it drives me up the wall at the thought of posting outside of my order. Also about halfway done with editing old chapters of Wishful Thinking, so I haven't broken my promise of finishing that cover by the time I finish editing XP
