Hey everyone! I was hoping to crank out this update sooner, but it's probably a good thing I procrastinated, since a lot changed recently.
Real Life: *waves goodbye to her money* I had a little bit of cash saved up for starting my moving fund and it's all spent already. I feel really terrible that it's gone. I probably never should have brought it with me over the weekend, but my step dad was getting snoopy and I didn't want him finding it. Better me spending it on my own dumb shit than him. Hopefully with summer coming I can bring that fund back up.
And speaking of moving, I might be having to move sooner and not with who I want to. My step dad is wanting to uproot the whole family, make it hard for my mom and I to commute to work and potentially jeopardize my job. Hoping things fall into place for me to be able to nab a place of my own by the end of the year.
And things have shifted for my partner and I for moving. We talked recently and our range for moving has changed again. I'm a lot more excited about this than I should be, but it's still really sweet <3
Cons: Detour was AH-MAZING!!! I wish every year could be like that <3 Had such a wonderful time with Velocity and I wish I could do it all over again. Pretty well have my cosplay list figured out for next year, it's just seeing if I have space for my usual amount of cosplays when I am only doing one cosplay all day on Saturday because of the competition. Surprised the con is so late next year. Hoping Velocity has a car by then, we will be staying until Monday if that's the case. It will be awesome spending that kind of time together <3
My next, and potentially last, con for the year is Geek.Kon (Daisho might get dropped due to the move). Sounds like we have a plan in place for travel and rooming. It's just getting the rooms and finalizing plans with the group in one of the rooms.
Cosplay: Several secret cosplays were debuted/revealed at Detour. Two of them were Kotetsu from Tiger & Bunny (two different outfits) and I had a BLAST cosplaying him, he's my spirit animal! Whilst talking to Velocity, I revealed that I was doing Ai from Loveless to go with their Midori. Since it was a surprise for them, I have no reason to keep it a secret anymore lol That leaves me with only one secret cosplay left, though I'm considering another as of late just because I can.
I was able to make some updates to my upcoming cosplays for Blake, Kevin, Yamato, Ren and Miaka, as well as some stuff for one of my Kotetsu cosplays. Plus made a purchase for a SUPER pretty kimono to use for a furry character I am calling Lolita Lapin, to go with my bunny ears. In talks with DAN to get Blake's weapon made. Not sure what it will be made out of or the complexity of the prop. Hoping to make a new spell book for Leon too when I get back to cosplaying him.
Art: Finished editing Wishful Thinking, currently working on chapter 13. Trial & Error's cover still needs to be inked and colored. Each time I set out to do it, I get side tracked. I am desperately hoping to get on that this week/weekend. Planning on getting back on all the Hetalia fics, specifically Holding Out For a Hero and Rock and a Hard Place. Thinking I really will write that Ben 10 fic, I will likely call that one Crash & Burn. Will also be working on my Detour music video starting tomorrow. Not sure how long it will take. On top of all this, I have been having hella insane mpreg feels lately, so if I can't do cosplay stuff with Velocity to curb that crazy (and maybe even if I do), I will likely be doing some drawing of that because reasons.
