At KuroNekoCon 2016 in Spokane, WA I dressed as a formal version of Chat Noir from “Miraculous Ladybug”! The song “Hello Kitty” by Avril Lavigne came on, and I couldn’t resist dancing to it (for obvious reasons). Before I knew it the whole room had formed a circle around me, so I just did my best to go with the flow!

Unfortunately not a lot of footage was caught of it, but Cobrastardust. was kind enough to send me what they managed to record so I could have it. A big thanks to them!! If anyone else has footage of anything that happened during this dance of me, feel free to send it to me!

Eeeey, have a Cullen picture I don’t think I’ve ever posted. I have such a big backlog of photos from this past year and I’m slowly making my way through them. 

My sister took it at WonderCon ‘15. Which was before I knew anyone in this fandom or cosplay community or was even all that active as a cosplayer. So I feel like such a kid in it, even though it was just over a year ago, and I kinda want to be like, “ohhhh babe, you have no idea what you’re about to walk out into, you’re life is gonna get ridiculous from here on out.”

I’m screaming internally (and a little externally) at these photos of my Wicked Lady / Black Lady costume! A million thank you’s to @blurryeyes for the photos! There are construction / in-progress pics on my cosplay facebook (http://facebook.com/levelupcosplay). Gonna get a little sappy - this costume means a lot to me. I remember watching Sailor Moon ar age 11 or 12, seeing this character and thinking “whoa, cool dress”. It’s been on my wishlist since before I knew what cosplay was. I put it off a long time because I never thought I had the skills or was skinny enough to pull of Sailor Moon characters. Then, pregnancy hit! I got huge, gaining about 50 lbs. I managed to lose all that weight plus a few pounds, so to celebrate I made this. I’m so happy with how the dress and wig came out, and with how I look in it! So, a zillion thank you’s to Blurryeyes! This is my #moondream!

Before I met you, I never knew what it was like to be able to look at someone and smile for no reason.

The Sword of Dios from Revolutionary Girl Utena!

This is the most work I’ve ever put into a prop – I painted the hilt from a drab grey to this – and I couldn’t be more proud of myself. Utena was one of the first anime series I ever saw, and this is a cosplay I’ve wanted to do since before I even knew what cosplay was; I’m so excited for it to come together!

I’d like to thank the 12.9 year old bitchass who came into my work with his mom and when I asked what he was making he said “you probably wouldn’t get it”

and when I asked about it he went on to say “its from a little known thing. I’m making a costume. I do this thing called cosplay”

And I WAS THIS LITTLE SHIT and when I said try me he fucking said “WELL ITS FROM THIS WEBCOMIC CALLED HOMESTUCK”
