Hey everyone! Sorry I'm so late to the game this month! I told myself about 2 weeks ago I'd get going on this but I just never did it. Making myself crack down on writing it XP
Real Life: Our second busy season has already started at work and we recently had someone quit, so the hours are pretty much piling in. I should have no problem affording my next con, it's the things to come before then that I am concerned about. I also have a shot at getting a pet sitting gig on the side, but as the days go on and I get no call back, my hopes are starting to dwindle. Also been selling some of my things on FB and have made nearly $100 in sales, along with some bartering for items and services.
I just realized I didn't make mention of this in prior updates, but my girlfriend asked me to live with her when she is ready to strike out on her own! I'm so fucking excited guys, you don't even know. It will be my first time being out of a parent's eyes and I'm really looking forward to it. Potential areas have been poked at, but I'm sure more thought will be put into it as it becomes more tangible. Looking at this to happen in a year to three, or that's my estimate anyway. Dare I say my dreams are coming true?
I'M GETTING A FUCKING WII!! AAAAAAAAH! A buddy on FB was selling his for dirt cheap and I took the chance. It's been a long time since I've made such an extremely selfish purchase. But I don't do it often these days so I'm spoiling myself a little with the big paycheck I'm getting.
Geekdom: Watched about half of Kuroshitsuji, interesting but not what I was expecting from all the hype it got. I will probably finish it and see where it leads me, but likely not going to watch the second season. Tiger & Bunny derping EVERYWHERE, Harvest Moon herping ALL OVER THE PLACE. And I've grown to love Magi so insanely much <3 I also started watching Ranma and it's just so much fun XD
Cons: Furry Migration was just way too much fun <3 It was more like MoA Con, with how often I was at the mall. I kinda feel like I didn't spend enough time at the con, thus didn't get a lot of pics. I also ended up with a staph infection because KB doesn't know when to put her foot down and ended up walking all over BFE. Ugh, never again. At least, not in ill fitting footwear and nothing protective under my skirt/dress. I have Daisho next month and I have everything figured out except a couple cosplays and a ride (anyone from MN going that could give me a lift to and from?), along with plotting a couple things here and there. It was going to be a laid back con for me, but then my fanbase in WI grew, so that's likely not happening now XD Daisho will be my last con for the circuit this year.
Cosplays: Once I get my hands on some hairspray, I will be avidly working on Leon's new wig and styling my Austria wig for Wataru and Makoto (I'll be a darker haired Mako, suck it). I have commissioned one of my daughters for a Seishun cosplay and hope that will be done by Daisho. I have pants and contacts for him already. Also trying to finish Makoto by the con, but he's not likely to happen due to when my next available time to get the supplies I need from my source is. Also trying to get pants for Ash, I don't care how accurate they are at this point, since my backup pants are ruined T_T Still poking at Mary, my secret cosplay and Crumbelina, while Kevin is getting a MAJOR upgrade in the prop department <3 I also debuted my OC, Ashira, at my last con and it felt so great to finally bring her to life. she's not complete, but it was so much fun to be her, I nearly started crying seeing my reflection.
Art: Currently editing chapters from Love Will Never Die and they are looking so much better. It's taking me a while since I don't have a program that has a spell and grammar check like Word Processor, so I have to drag my external hard drive, which weighs as much as a brick, to the library and work has been making that difficult. After I finish that, I will go back and edit Wishful Thinking. I really want to do this before posting new chapters of anything. As for new stuff, I was recently cranking out the cover for Trial & Error, but due to not having references for Gwen, Louis and Sawyer, it looked pretty bad. So I need to start over, but it will give me a chance to make it look more interesting too. Likely add more characters that are prominent in the story. Still poking at potential stories for Ben 10 and an original work with Ashira and her world.
