08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

I will be there!! If you haven't heard, I will be cosplaying Pyro and will mostly be in character the whole time! I hope this cough goes away by then... Cosplay for Friday and Sunday is mostly complete, just need to iron on the patches for my Pyro costume and it's golden. I won't be lugging around an oxygen tank on my back so instead I'm using my Pyro plush doll as a substitute... a very adorable substitute. I'm deflating my balloonicorn so I can carry it around easier to the hotel room, so I need to buy some cheapo air pump from the Dolla Tree. If you're going to Sakura-Con and are cosplaying, would you like to take a photo with my Balloonicorn?

Saturday is my Secret Cosplay day I believe, only two-three people know what it is. The outfit was pretty easy to put together, I just needed to get a few modifications.

My sister's outfit is turning out so adorable for Sakura-con, so colorful!! She's been working hard on all the necklaces and bracelets to go with it.

I also need to get a portfolio of art to commission artists at the convention which I can hand out to them just in case they don't have time to finish it, and I'll even add my name and stuff on them for easier contact info. As much as it was convenient to use my card at Comic-Con, I'd like to make sure I'm not spending too much money (and refrain from eating up the bandwidth..). Paying my first ever indie worker taxes are coming soon so haha that'll be funnnnn~

I wonder if I should save up in the future for a table at Sakura-con next year. Maybe turn my life around a little more, start working on my comics and projects again, update my site...

Speaking of which, at comic-con I bought real screentones!!!! I was so pumped to get them, and was surprised to see them in person! I bought 10 of them I think hahaha. Not only that but I bought comicking paper, drafting pencils, ink and manga pen nibs so I can try and do things traditionally now. The freaking feather duster to remove eraser dust cost $20!!!! Freaking outrageous crap right there DELETER.
