Bringing Dreams to Life
This is for Disney-Clubs contest: All Grown Up.…
I had this idea for Boo, what if everyone managed to convince her the trip to Monstropolis was just a dream. All the monsters, there world, even "Kitty" were just her imagination? What if she never stopped drawing the monsters from her "dream" and the world she saw? She might have grown up to become a Disney Imagineer and create a ride for the theme parks based on her dream never knowing she was really showing the world what she had seen when she was 3 or 4 years old. I drew up this scene with a couple of fun nods to her life. I thought she might have gone to the California Institute of Art so, I put her framed deploma on the wall as well as newspaper/internet articles about the new ride she wanted to keep. I also put her book of dreams on the desk and had her drawing our favorite blue and purple monster. Also her shoe color is a nod to her favorite "kitty". ;) The drawings on the cork board are a throw back to the ones we see her drawing in the movie in Mike and Sulley's apartment. If the flowers on the wall look familiar, I kinda took them from her door.   One last fun fact, Boo's actual name is Mary and I just made up the last name so the deploma reads Mary Collins. I had so much fun figuring this out so, I hope you guys enjoy it. :)

As Walt Disney once said: "Who says you have to grow up." I love to think outside the box and never let my age or experience dictate what I can create. I refuse to grow up and will always live life to the fullest. I am always improving in my art and I hope you appreciate the journey my creativity takes you on. :)

Sakura=the delicate blossoms that grace the world to usher in Spring. The image of a fleeting beauty which should never be taken for granted.
Light=the constant which reminds us that darkness is never the victor, only the obstical to overcome.

Favourite cartoon character: Depends on what mood I'm in. ;) Right now Stitch.
Personal Quote: "Life happens. Get used to it."
I realized it has been awhile since I updated anything personal about myself which can mean one of two things. I either am super busy or have not much to report. Of course it could be the mysterious option three that I couldn't be bothered to list the boring duldrums of my life. I'll let you decide which it is. ;) If there is one thing I have learned about myself is that I tend to get involved in projects which consume my time. Not that this is bad but I find I have little time for much else after work and tend to let things slip away. Things I really want to accomplish. With that being said, this year I have decided to time manage more and so far am finding my inspiration and passion.  Anyone who looks at my page will soon discover I am divided between my love of art and costuming. I tend to be more inspired by costuming but it also helps me explore different aspects of my art.  This year I will work hard to devote my time to both of my passions in the hope that I can grow as an artist. I used to think I had no personal style to my art but once I did a few projects for my work I realized I did and I need to cultivate that and expand my horizons.

All this is leading to my newest project which my best friend helped me find.  I had already decided to follow the legions of Frozen fans into the wide world of Arendelle and make Anna's coronation dress. I have loved Anna since the first time I saw her and loved her even more after seeing the movie. She has my persoanlity and it is so rare for me to find a character like her which I relate to so well.  I was scared at first to tackle the box pleating of her skirt but I NEED to challenge myself in my costuming and this is the best way, with something I love.  I told my best friend about this costuming endevor and we talked back and forth about the Frozen costumes. She loves Elsa and I feel she can really realate to the character on a personal level.  I casually mentioned if she wanted me to make the ice dress Elsa wears I would be willing to work on it for her.  A couple of months later she came back with the comment she loved Elsa's coronation dress better.  She has been hinting for a several weeks that she would like this dress so yesterday we made it offical. We picked out material and when she can afford it she will purchase the material and we can be sisters of Arendelle for real.  I had put the timeline down to have mine finished for our local sci-fi convention, Starfest, next April. I also suggested we should enter the costume contest together. I don't expect to win, but I thought it might be a fun way to show off all our hard work.  Surprisingly, she agreed to this. :)  Then it exploded frome there with the possibility of using her two daughters, who will be 9 and 6 at the time, and have them go on first as the yong Elsa and Anna in their night gowns from the indoor snow scene.  I will be making all four costumes plus hand embroidering mine and my best friends, but I don't really feel overwhelmed about it. I acctually feel excited about it.  I'm taking this as a sign that I am supposed to make these costumes and that it will help strengthen our friendship.  Needless to say I can't wait to start sharing my Frozen adventure with you guys. :)

It's always really nice to see that people still enlist their interest into Expanded Universe. Admiral Thrawn has always been a fan of mine since childhood.
Sakuras-Light Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
Thank you. :) Honestly the reason I'm such a huge fan of Star Wars is due mostly to the Heirs of the Empire trillogy getting me hooked into the Expanded Universe. I owe that universe so much for heng me appreciate the Star Wars universe for what it was.
Siontix Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I wholeheartedly agree with you, Heir to the Empire is great. Although, I haven't read those books since middle school. The last Star Wars book I've read was "Deathtroopers" the zombie novelization. Even though I found the book weird and fairly unfitting into Star Wars, it's one of my favorites. All in all, though, I'm primarily a fan of the Knights of the Old Republic era of Star Wars.
