Friends, I'm considering leaving DeviantArt.

Since my projects take months to complete, I don't upload but a few times a year. DeviantArt has had a massive problem with Malware getting in through their ads. Every time I come here to check out things, my anti-virus blocks a high-threat risk coming into my computer. The only thing DeviantArt has done is allow you to download a firefox ad on where you can report the ads, but that still doesn't block the attempted attacks. This has been a problem for years. Every time a Core membership sale comes up where I get 6 months, I'll get it, but it comes up rarely and I can't justify the normal membership as, A. It used to be cheaper for Premium, but they doubled the cost and renamed the same thing "Core". I don't use the other features, I *JUST* want ad-free browsing to protect myself, and B. As I said, I don't upload often enough to justify paying $5 a month to use this site.

If DeviantArt really cared about stopping these hackers, they would offer a tiered system where there would be a cheaper price for only ad-free browsing. Maybe I'll come back every once in awhile to throw up a new picture, but for my own safety, I just can't come here anymore until DeviantArt fixes their shit.

P.S. Please note! I AM NOT A COSPLAYER!!! Those of us who have been involved in the art of costume making, especcially in the professional level guilds, have always known our art to be Costuming. "Cosplay" is a relatively new fad that technically means "Costume Role-play" and the focus is not necessarily on the costume, but on the activity. Wearing a costume and posing for pictures also is not necessarily cosplay. As one who focuses on the artform of making a complete character look, I am a Costumer and would prefer being refered to as such. Thank you for understanding!

Also, I do not do commission work. If I have anything for sale, it will be posted to my journal :)

-STOCK- Please note, my work is not stock art. I have had a few people use my work as such in a taseful manner though. If you want to use my work as stock, please ask permission first. Don't use it in any inappropriate manner, and credit me! The costumes I make are hand-made and took a lot of work. :)

Favourite genre of music: Rock
Favourite style of art: Realism

Hi there! I was randomly going through my favorites when I found myself looking at your goregeous hand-crafted Ravenclaw uniform photo set and I just wanted to drop by to let you know that it's definitely one of my all-time favorite deviations on this website, one that I always go back to goggle at from time to time! It also inspired me to do my own research of Hogwarts robes so that I could draw characters in the HP world with more accuracy *v*

I've looked through your blog a few times in the past, and every time I do I am simply at awe at the effort and time you put into each of your costumes. Keep up the great work, and thank you for being a wonderful inspiration! :icontuzkiheartplz:

I'm working on my first renaissance gown and I was impressed by your work on that italian renaissance gown. I thought that was really great, I wish I could sew that well. As such, I cannot find a pattern that I'm happy with so I've opted to make it without a pattern. It takes alot longer though. Great job on that dress! That cotehardie was beautiful too!

Thank you! You know, for the main part of that one, I didn't use a pattern either. Just created a simple bodice (it laces up, so no real fitting issues), and the trained skirt was kind of a large "U" shape which I pleated into the bodice. Good luck with it :)

I've been on your gallery for about 30 minutes, and I'm super impressed!! It makes me want to rekindle my love for the Star Wars universe. 

Do you have any interest in creating GI Joe costumes?  Most of what I've seen has been very "October 31st-ish."  I'm no Costumer, but rather a 3D modeler and 2D digital artist.  Apart from my few 'toon works, I'm all about the appearance of realism in my own craft, as well.
