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 Wisconsin. I've been cosplaying since 2004, done over 40 cosplays and been to 23 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.
'Sup everyone? Things are a roller coaster here, so bear with me.

Real Life: Money is getting better with work picking up and my boss starting to trust me to clean houses alone. if only I had a car, this would be a lot better...*sigh* But it means Geek (and other upcoming plans) won't be so bad.
House is even emptier, but I don't plan to start packing my room until after Geek.Kon. I don't want to pack something away and realize I needed it for the con and have to find it again. Then I also don't have to find the box I packed similar things in if I buy something. Just makes it easier on my brain. Besides, with shit to go through in the garage, I have plenty of pre-moving stuff to work on.
My life is getting a major overhaul. I'm dealing with a lot of shit and I plan on starting over with my life once I move out on my own. This may include the removal of my cosplay account on FaceBook and may or may not be replaced with a fan page. I don't know yet. I also upgraded my site to have a slightly new look (really just changed some fonts, sizes and colors).

Cons: Geek.Kon's plans are starting to fall into place with the group being finalized (so long as no one drops out). Now it's working out travel times and cosplays. I'll be on a Hetalia panel and attending the ball, having a double date and doing a hero dinner, that much is figured out at least. And, as per usual, I'm sure there is a night of intense drinking in store for Velocity and I XP
After this con, Detour will likely be my only con for a while, potentially until Velocity and I live together and have our lives in order.

Cosplay: Kotetsu (both versions) are looking to be done by Geek. Hoping to have an official outfit for Ukraine by then as well (school uniform most likely). At Velocity's suggestion, I'll also be cosplaying Tomoe Kaburagi to Geek, but only for the formal. An official outfit for her will be done at another time. Other ideas for the con are Ash, Kevin, Seishun and Yamato, with Yamato being the most likely. so these are the cosplays I'm trying to focus on at the moment.

Art: FINALLY getting through my backlog of photos, which is really nice to be able to do <3 Wishful Thinking has hit a major plot point, while Holding Out For a Hero, as well as A Rock and a Hard Place, have come off hiatus. Trial & Error is on hold right now because, for some reason, I've just been lacking the motivation for color the cover, which is the only thing standing in my way right now. Love Will Never Die is going into hiatus as I catch up on my other stories.
I am also offering commissions, but you will need to go to my site for information.
