There is an artist here on DA (who I watch and watches me) who has drawings of me (some include my boyfriend or my friends ~pikabellechu (https://www.deviantart.com/pikabellechu) and Sam) in her gallery. She says that she had people pose for her or that they are original creations, when they are blatant copies of photos I have had taken by Maboroshi (http://www.risingsun.net). Perhaps even traced off a computer monitor.
Sure, these drawings are from years ago, but I only recently stumbled over them. I asked her nicely in a comment on her profile here to put the proper credit (Maboroshi as photographer and the appropriate models) in the descriptions. I have the originals to some

Looking through galleries makes me notice how many awesome costumes I missed!
Friday, I wore my Black and White Lolita dress, so I was nice and comfy. Bought my ticket (didn't even have to wait that long!!), helped ~Neko-Kaolla (https://www.deviantart.com/neko-kaolla) to get hers, and we wandered around. Found :iconeglpirate: and Julie got some photo
