Sausomecon

Updates are going to be little to none while I prepare for Sausomecon 2018! I'm currently working on a 1 month Sylvanas Windrunner build that I'm hoping to be able to contest in for Sausomecon. That's taking up most of my time, that and Patreon, making sure all my subs are getting what I promised them ^.^

I hope to see you all at Sausomecon Jul 6th - 8th at the KCI Expo Center!

New Poll Is Up! Help Me Out!

So basically, the deal is...if you're one of the top two tiers on Zach Fischer's Patreon, then you are on his commission track. Right now, it's pretty much the only way to get a commission from him. Whatever he designs is going to wreck me, which is fine. I want to be challenged. 

Anyway, I can't decide what I want. I have a LOT of ideas, and I can only do one. So if you guys can answer my poll, it'd help me SO much! 

Thanks!

I'm Back From Naka!!

Y'all, it was friggen wild, but it was SO worth it! I met Moderately Okay Cosplay and got two pics with him, PLUS he took a selfie with a friend of mine and myself and sent it to Jessica Nigri who gave us a shout out on her Instagram. What the hell even is my life right now?!

My SidLink art piece got Judge's Choice in the art contest, and had a LOT of interested buyers, so that's great!

Sadly, my Axel cosplay kicked the bucket on the way home. The car ended up not being packed well, and one movement of the breaks being put on and they were crushed to death =/. RIP. My Axel wig gave me blisters, so it's time to update that cosplay anyway. That had been a cheap wig I got off eBay and spent WAY more time restyling than should have been needed. The chakrams I made were due for an update. We'll figure it out.

Alexstrasza made it through a photoshoot, and I can't wait to get the prints back from it. I'm going to be selling them likely! Besides that though, the pauldron snap broke for a third time -.-" It'd been breaking fairly often and I'm not sure what to do to fix it. 

Either way, my whole weekend was a whirlwind and I loved every minute of it. I'm back home now, sore head to toe, but I'd missed my kids like crazy.

Next stop? Sausomecon!

We've entered the home stretch! My Alexstrasza cosplay is finished, so we're all game for Naka-Kon and meeting Moderately Okay Cosplay @.@. I'm freaking out!

If you'd like to catch me live at Naka-Kon, then you can follow me:
facebook.com/fullelvencosplaya…
instagram.com/fullelven
patreon.com/fullelven

Patreon will be the lucky few who will get advanced access and behind the scenes pics from my photoshoots this weekend as Alexstrasza and Axel!

Radio silence here until I get back, and then I'll have new art to post for you all ^.^ Namely, my 2018 art contest entry for the Naka-Kon art contest! Let's hope that I can have a repeat of my luck from last year with my Yuri on Ice piece! :D

Y'all...unless your problem with a convention is that the convention is problematic...I really don't want the drama. I have about two weeks to finish my cosplay, I could really care less that you're upset the convention won't let you wear lewd costumes or carry a realistic looking gun or that you're unhappy about all the rules they have that were set not because of staff, but because of the city and venue.

Don't...go? It's okay, I understand. Everyone has their own way of cosplaying. I'm just...tired. And apparently have a face that says "Please crap all over one of the only cons I can attend." 

Just let me like this thing. If something problematic shows up about the con, I'll be the first to be like YO THIS ISNT COOL, but 'having too many rules' because they are in a town that has an anti-nudity law, and the police don't want realistic looking guns so that in the case of a shooter, they don't shoot a cosplayer, and not liking that they dont want cosplays bigger or wider than 7th....isn't problematic. So just...stop. Shhh...

Sorry that I've been so busy! I did create art last month, and I'm mega proud of the piece, but I am entering it into an art contest next month, and they request that we use new part pieces that no one else has seen so that they perform better. As such, it'll be posted up here in mid to late March.

I've got a piece that I'm working on right now for Overwatch. That will likely get posted up as soon as I finish it. 

I just didn't want you guys to think that I'd ONLY been producing chibi or sticker art as of late! Definitely not the case! I'll have some new finished content up soon!

Upcoming 2018 Convention Schedule

Hey everyone! I wanted to check in with everyone and let you know that I'll be heading to a couple new cons! I'd like to see you all and hang out, so if any of you are in the Northwest Missouri area/Northeast Kansas area, stop by and say hello!

1) Saucycon
2) Planet Comic-Con (currently going Sunday only)
3) Naka-Kon
4) Sausomecon

I'll likely be with my family during Planet Comic-Con and Saucesome, so please be courteous if you see me with my kids. Don't take pictures of them without permission (and that means both mine/my husband's and theirs. It's their body after all getting photographed). 

I hope to get to see you all there! :D

Yooooo! A very, very, very special thank you and shout out to draggiiee and kjohnson-originals for gifting me with a core membership! this is the best gift that anyone has gotten, and I am floored. You all totally surprised me! Thank you both SO MUCH! <3 <3

I hope that everyone is enjoying their holiday season! I've been pretty busy working on my dragon mom (Alexstrasza) cosplay! I need to order some more 2mm foam to make horns with, but the base to my breastpiece is done and waiting for filigree! :D 

I am so glad that I just logged on for this, seriously. Like...my day (my week) has been made!

So, unfortunately, I will not have a table at Naka-Kon 2018. That being said, I will still be there, so if anyone ends up going, please feel free to say hi if you see me around!

If you were hoping to buy prints from me, let me know, and I can get you hooked up by just mailing them directly to you! 

Also, I am waiting to hear if I'm getting tables at Sauceycon and Sausomecon next year, so there's still hope!

Thank you all for your continued support and drop by my Patreon for exclusives! patreon.com/jacenrayneart

So let me just say, I love you guys here on deviantART. I got a LOT more support on my Jaina fanart than I thought, because I honestly believed that I was in the dark being a Jaina fan. All I ever read about are people who want her to die, or think she's stupid, or hope they do some character ruining stuff to her.

And it's Blizz, let's be real, their track record with female characters really isn't all that great as far as empowerment goes...

But thank you all for being awesome and supportive and loving her! It's good to find a place I can express my love for her without getting shit on.

I'm still here! Sorry I haven't been rapid fire updating like normal! I've actually got a pretty extensive website commission I'm working on right now. So most of my time has been filled with teaching myself plug-ins and coding shortcuts that I didn't know before. It's been interesting, having to learn a brand new system, and trying to wrangle it to work the way I can get just regular ol Bootstrap to work, but it's coming along! 

I'll have some art updates here soon, and I promise before the end of the month! I have patrons to keep happy too! ^.^

Hey everyone! 

This Sidon cosplay is overwhelming @.@. I think it's mostly because I have a limited amount of know-how, and there are no tutorials for the exact things I need online. So I've pretty much been reliant on word-of-mouth help from friends to do things until I friend came over yesterday to help me alter some Batgirl Simplicity patterns to start the outfit. I was going to make a body suit, but this is in two pieces and WAY more comfortable that way. I'm going to be--hopefully--running an art booth at Naka-Kon, and I'd really rather be stuck in a two-piece costume instead of a body suit all day. 

Plus getting undressed entirely to use the bathroom sucks

Anyway, shirt and pants are done, and it's the first time in my life I've ever had something that fits my tiny wrists and long arms perfectly. I think my next thing I'm going to tackle is either the skirting around the shirt, or the shoulder pads. Probably shoulder pads, as they're a little less intensive. 

For picture updates on my work-in-progress, as well as access to tutorials for it, then join my Patreon page: patreon.com/jacenrayneart Starting at a dollar a month, you can get access to things I don't post here!

Back from the Con

Sun Jul 2, 2017, 2:35 PM

I promise to try to catch up on notes and notifications soon!

I am absolutely, positively exhausted. Every inch of my body aches, because it's really the most physical activity I've had in a long time...three days of walking and walking and walking and carrying around props and whatnot. Even my fingers are sore.

But I did it. I met a lot of cool people, made some friends, and learned a lot. I entered my first cosplay contest, won a prize, and even got to see my eldest beat his own anxiety and win a trophy too for stealing the show.

My second youngest got to have a one-on-one and hang out with Cynthia Cranz (voice actress for Chi-Chi from DBZ) and get a pic with her.

Charles found a new band he loves in Kazha, and got their autographs! So really, for everyone this weekend, we had a really, really amazing time and enjoyed each and every aspect of Sausomecon. Definitely the best con to have been my second, thought I wish it had been my first! I could have eased into Naka for next year!

Ah well, my con season is over, time to start working on/planning for Naka 2018!

Sausomecon and Patreon

Mon Jun 26, 2017, 3:53 PM
Hey all! Just a quick update before Sausome in 4 days! My current cosplay lineup is looking like I'm bringing Sole Survivor Friday, Axel on Saturday, and Viktor Nikiforov on Sunday! I'm pretty excited for this, and I'm hoping to get a lot of pictures!

Also, a reminder that I am on Patreon! So if you enjoy my art, and you'd like to support me (so that I can continue making art on a regular basis) please think about supporting me there! As little as 1 dollar a month and you unlock a lot of cool stuff that I don't post here, including WIP, behind the scenes, tutorials and more!

If there's something else you'd like for me to open, like hangouts or skype, let me know and I can add that to my Patreon lists! 

patreon.com/jacenrayneart is where you can find me over there!

Thanks for being awesome everyone, and I'll see you after Sausomecon!

Welcome New Watchers

Wed Jun 14, 2017, 1:49 PM
Hey all! Thanks so much for all the favorites and watches lately!

I've got some new art coming up soon, and my commissions are always open! So if you'd like anything, please let me know! My pricing can be found fullelven.com/commission.html (no other links work on that page since I've updated it recently. But to see me full site, please visit fullelven.com). 

I've also entered the costume contest for Sausomecon, so I'll be adding pics for that hopefully soon once I finish Axel's Chakrams. I almost have one ready for the plaster. The other I still need to cut out and glue 8 more spikes. They both need the crossbars as well. 

It's a busy, busy month, and our town's Pride festival is this weekend, so I'll be headed there. 

I hope you all have a great week!

Chakrams

I have the stuff for my Chakrams coming today! The last bits of the paper mache :D. I'm kinda excited, but also very nervous, because I'm not the most versed in making cosplay props.
