Kurama--Babe's Profile Picture

United States
I am a well known plus-sized cosplayer from Minnesota in the USA. I have been attending cons and cosplaying for 10 years, totaling 20 cons and over 30 cosplays. I might not be widely traveled, but my imagination takes me places. Winner of AnimeIowa's 2013 MVB award.
Hey guys!!! Things have been a roller coaster once again, but I'm just kind of going along for the ride at this point. Some things have calmed down, others are still teetering on the edge. It's making me jumpy and moody, but y'all are used to that by this point I think XP But my website has a blog now! (website is linked on my profile) Will have things on there that haven't been posted elsewhere, just my here and my FB have things things no other site does. Hope to start posting those soon. Then I'll have either a photo or video gallery up after that.

Real Life: Things have gotten better with work. Been up and down with the hours, but it's been good. This week has been hella insane with my boss and her daughter/my coworker going on vacation for the week. So today and tomorrow have been chock full of responsibility. I hope we can make her proud.
Scattering my uncle's ashes has yet to happen, but I am slowly working on it. Every time I get close to doing it, something happens to prevent me from doing so that day.
I HAVE A DEBIT CARD!!! No, I don't have a bank account. It's one of those reloadable, prepaid ones. And it's been quite lovely so far <3 I can't wait to try it out for some online purchases and reserving hotel rooms. You guys have NO idea how excited I am for this, I'm always having to rely heavily on others for this kind of thing.
For the first time in a long time, I am below 260 pounds! It's ALWAYS my resolution to drop a little weight, but I NEVER expected this! <3 My weight has always been up and down at the drop of a hat due to my hormone deficiency. But it's been a bit more stable recently and I totally though the scales I was standing on were broken when I had this happiness <3

Geekdom: Tiger & Bunny is ALWAYS running high. Harvest Moon feels are rounding that out. FMA is happening too, since I'm watching the second half of the original series soon. Will be checking out Kuroshitsuji shortly, so we'll see how that goes.

Cons: I am no longer going to Geek.Kon. An unfortunate set of circumstances (not involving prior issues) have made it so it's not in my best interest to go. Still going to Furry Migration and that will be my next con. However, in place of Geek.Kon, I might be attending Daisho Con. It's been a few years since I've gone and I hated it, but we'll see how things go. Got a place to stay and a couple potential cosplays picked out (one may be new). Just need a ride at this point if it happens.

Cosplay: No new progress, though I am looking to pay Lady Majora for the work she's planning on doing for my Houndour cosplay. And with one of my wigs coming back to my possession, I can start some work on Mary. Hoping to get some things done for Ashira, even if it's just her tail. Want to get some photoshoots with her when I finish. Even better if I can find someone to cosplay her mate, Lukri. Three secret cosplays I was looking to debut next year are bing put on the back burner for the time being. As such, some cosplays that may move from potential to upcoming are Ren (DRAMAtical Murder), Makoto (Free) and Lau (Kuroshitsuji), since my time and money can go to other cosplays now. Makoto, if things pan out, will be the new one for Daisho. It won't be the version I want to do, but maybe I can crank out his school uniform or something casual.

Art: Still no new drawings, but that will change shortly, as I need cover art for my new fanfic. Yes, I am green lighting the Harvest Moon story I've been talking about for months. It will be called 'Trial and Error' and feature my OC Sawyer, who has suffered much abuse to the point of running away and starting a new life on a farm, finding unexpected love and hardships along the way. I have researched the HELL out of several games and such to see what would give the best story for what I needed. It's shaping up to look pretty good <3 Looking forward to it.
