Since we didn't make the competition in time, I'll consider this a training session. The water was good practice for different terrain, and Kamille's costume as well as Knight's tack were a chance to get creative and decorate, definitely a help for future shows

Man, I thought my internet was going to screw me over big time. I had most of this entry done, all that was missing was Kamille's kimono, which I wanted to look up different types and design it accurately, but noooooo. The internet was out from 10'o clock last night to just a few minutes ago (~ 4:20 pm) so I got a hold of the internet at school, pulled up a few photos and hoped I could get the design done. So yep, that's it, it's done.
Yeah.....my internet screwed me over....I missed the judging and I'm so frustrated right now. I feel like I did all this work for absolutely nothing. Sure, it was good practice, but I've told myself that so many times in the past that now it's a pathetic and empty excuse that I don't believe anymore.
Despite this huge disappointment...
This one was a lot of fun, from the background to the tack to all the details on Kamille(And I was glad I could use some of what I've learned about Japanese architecture from my asian art history class )
Though now it's quite a bit less fun
I was thinking of offering commissions this summer, but we'll see. He's participating in the 2014 AUSe Olympics, and I'm really looking forward to that
