Hello 1001 Watchers! (+links)

There's literally like...50-70 new comers so I thought I'd do a little house keeping for you guys! (ps: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!)

First off, HELLO! I have an inkling where most of you came from the past few days, but I'm really just blown away at how many of you guys there are now! I had NO IDEA I was even CLOSE to 1000 O____O So, thank you for watching me! <3  I try to stay as active as I can on DA...but I'm rather slow at responding to comments and replies (as I'm sure a lot of you noticed!). Usually, I'm pretty good with updating and uploading, even in cosplay dead months XD
BUT, if you'd like more frequent/somewhat personal updates, please like my Facebook Page here: www.facebook.com/TotallyToasty
I run this page with :iconhiyoko-chan: , aka Teeny, who is my main partner in crime ^^ <3. TotallyToasty is our way of showcasing our cosplays and cosplay photography. For you new guys, I am a freelance photographer and aspiring fashion photographer...so I take our Toasty work really seriously...sometimes too seriously XD

I also have a Tumblr blog! Two, in fact! I update pretty much daily (sometimes less on my cosplay blog). You can follow them here:
Fashion/vintage/personal lookbook: macheriearielle.tumblr.com/
Cosplay related: www.tumblr.com/blog/totallytoa…  *Once I have more time in the next few weeks, I'll be doing weekly features of costumes/cosplay photography! Submissions will be taken! :D Although, to submit, you must be following my main fashion blog...since my cosplay one is a secondary blog >< kinda silly, but I guess it works??

To see what cosplay stuff I've been up to this past year, check out my 2012 Cosplay Meme! It features some progress pics of new projects! fav.me/d5q3yqj

And lastly, here are some cosplay plans for 2013!

Thank you XDDD It was really weird for me to have so much activity on my page O____O (I'm kinda glad it's calmed down now XD lol)

UGH. Cosplaying is the harrrrdest to fit in these days >< It makes me really sad! It makes it even harder that I don't get photos of my costumes unless I take them XD (hilarious, really lol) but that's also kinda fun cause I get ultimate control of how I want my photos to look and where I can post them XD. blah rant rant. ANYWAYS, I'm really hoping this year I can get in a lot of cosplays I've REALLY wanted to make :D

Well I can always do another one ^^ <3 I just want to get the shoot in the library of St. Ignatius done while there's a possibility of snow on the window sills XD But I was thinking of doing another one in warmer months at the University of Chicago campus :)

I would love to join in if I can actually get a Harry Potter outfit together! I loved cosplaying Hermione that one night at ACEN but didn't get any photos sadly.

But we will see.
