Yep... a lot has happened since the last post!

1) Most important, I took the 1st 2011 UK EC place. Finals in London at the end of October. Comp was pretty hot.

2) Ayacon happened, and I got to do almost no costumey stuff =(. For a panel, I did do a partial face prosthesis in less than three hours, which was then applied by Laura. turned out pretty well IMO.

3) Working towards having a portfolio ready to take to a few SFX houses. Mainly targeting the bigger ones in London first.

4) Have a list of new costume plans. WCS entry next year (unannounced till event, sorry!), semi-casual one for next year which will let me play with prosthetics a bit more (Adam Jenson from Deus Ex:HR), plus I have a few random plans, and a possible AMAZING idea for October Expo next year (if I can get enough people I know well enough and are willing!)

Other than that, wrist is getting a lot better these days, though I still don't trust it to heavy work (which Skeksil totally is, but that doesn't count!).

Might update again in a year or so!

You're the Nina at London expo '09? Omg if I wasn't an American, 12 at the time, and other stuff I would've went! If my icon freaks you out a bit I'm sorry I happen to find it awesome. :iconprussiaplz:

I just saw your Skeksis costume. I was hoping you would post something after I saw the Mystic WIP. But that really knocked me off my feet.

Congrats, you are a true artist! Keep up the good work!

I just found your page and I am impressed by your costumes! Can you post a picture of your mystic costume from dark crystal? That must be awesome!

i never actually finished it ;p

the operating position totally put me off in the end, and the quilting on the coat would have been a nightmare.

i should have my skeksis ready around may though!

Oh, how unfortunate! But I understand that. It took professional dancers to operate the puppets in the movie. I never tried that ;-)

I am really looking forward to your skeksis costume! Will you post your progress?

i'm a bit secretive about the skeksis project. it's actually well on it's way now, but progress pics are only open to a handful of people close to me until after the event it's targeted for.
