AFest 2014 plans!I'm attending AFest on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but not for the whole day (since we're bringing the kid along).
Friday: Lady White Mage
Saturday: Cinderella (NEW!)
Sunday: not sure yet, maybe Twilight Sparkle
AKon 2014 prep!Less than 2 weeks til A-Kon! Really looking forward to the con this year, especially since the wonderful grandparents are going to be watching my baby boy. My newest cosplay is nearing completion and I'm very excited about debuting new stuff.
Tentative cosplay plans:
• Thursday - original formal version of Franziska von Karma for the masquerade ball
• Friday morning, Saturday morning/afternoon - Lady White Mage - new costume inspired by the classic Final Fantasy job class and sort of a Renaissance/Game of Thrones regal gown. The dress is complete, and now I'm working on the light-up healing staff. Progress pix on my Facebook page.
• Friday evening - Rainbow Brite (with new legwarmers)
• Saturday evening - Kris from Pokemon (possibly a Pokemon Sulfur cosplay reunion with Bobble head Nurse Joy, James, and Pyramid Head)
• Sunday - black Team Rocket dress

Post All-Con, orders reopenedI got to debut my 10th Doctor costume at All-Con this past weekend, and it was so much fun! I've done crossplays before, but not in a while (and rarely this much fun). It was surprising how many people didn't realize it was ME in the costume, even though I've worn short wigs before. Kind of amusing to walk up to people I've known for years and they have NO IDEA. :3
Now that All-Con is over, my next costume on deck is Princess Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy. I've had the fabric for years, and the wig for awhile as well, but I actually need to make the costume and accessories (and style the wig). It was planned for last AFest, but then the MLP wedding episodes happened and I had to make Cadance instead. ^^
I wound up with a bunch of conventions for this year due to some very fortunate circumstances.
- Louisianime (cosplay guest)
- SGC (free passes won at Video Games Live concert)
- WhoFest (a local Doctor Who con? YES.)
Sadly I'll have to ski
Commissions temporarily closedWe have some pending orders to finish, a convention in 2 weeks, and some real life stuff going on, so plush commissions are temporarily closed. I'll post another journal when they're open again (and we'll have filly ponies available to order then, too!)

2013 Cosplay Plans!Here are my cosplay plans for 2013!
10th Doctor - Doctor Who (Brown suit version: actually found the perfect fabric with the blue pinstripes and all at a fabric warehouse. Never thought I would ever find it.)
"Souffle Girl" Oswin Oswald - Doctor Who (A bit of a twist on her character, but if you've seen her episode, "Asylum of the Daleks", you'll get the joke.)
Princess Rosalina - Super Mario Galaxy (I've had this fabric and wig components for a while now, and actually planned to make this costume for last AFest. But then Princess Cadance happened instead. ^^)
Not a lot of conventions planned for this year:
Sadly I will probably miss AFest and Brony Fan Fair this year, but hopefully will be back for 2014.

My thoughts on DeviantArt Eclipse beta testI've organized my thoughts a bit more after my initial shock response, so I'd like to write them down. I've beta tested DA eclipse that's planned on being rolled out soon and here are my thoughts.
In general, I'm ok with DeviantArt getting a new look. I understand that sometimes it might not be good to be stuck in the same design while everyone else around you moves forward. The thing that I disliked the most about this new design is that it borrows way too many design elements from biggest websites on the internet, like youtube , twitter , facebook , google , etc. It's ok to use some design elements that have been proven to work well, but I feel like this is going too far. If DA decides to adopt this new look, it will be the least recognizable, least individual, least deviant it has ever been in its history, objec
