Erunei, for helping me make merchandise & get ready for the con, as well as taking time to photograph my cosplays during the con. You’re irreplaceable! ;A; <333 Spiccan, for taking me with you to the artist alley! Thank you so much for the opportunity, I have never before sold as well as I did at this con, and I could have not done that without you! Thanks for your company, you were a great table buddy to have, I hope I didn’t run around too much. ;w; (and if I did, please tell me so I can work on my AA table manners) Kawppa, for accommodating me last minute! Thank you so much for taking me in with you to your hotel room, I don’t know about you but for me it was a little scary to share a room with a watcher I had not met in two years… XD (and I didn’t remember you until you said you bought a bead lizard from me, that sorta sparked a memory as to why was your face familiar to me) It was truly kind of you. But as we talked at the evenings, I noticed from the stories you told that that is who you are - a kind, caring person. Your friends are lucky to have someone like you. :3 Lamppu, for making time to meet up with me despite the circumstances, and I suppose having the courage to do so also. It was a short moment, with a slightly awkward start but.. I enjoyed seeing you, and I liked talking with you, and I hold to what we said as we parted - we should totally arrange time to see for a longer period of time. <3 (ps. I saw a Destiel cosplay (Dean & Castiel walking around holding hands) in Tracon! I thought of you and smiled, but didn’t have a chance to take a picture of them…)
Thank you to every single person who bought art from me, who squeed and pointed at it excitedly, who stopped to talk with me (special mention to people I knew from before but had not seen in awhile, was nice seeing you guys!!), who took a calling card (and especially those couple of folks who asked for one even though I had run out!), who complimented on my cosplay, thank you as well to the bunch of people who be-friended me on the way to the con (and away from it)…
It was exhausting, I was selling art for 12 hours on Saturday, and only 7 on Sunday but… it was worth it. I bought cool stuff (MATCHA KITKAT, INTO MOUTH IT GOES OM NOM NOM), met cooler people and had the coolest of times.
I promised I’d write something about Tracon, Finnish anime and roleplaying convention I attended as an artist alley artist. This was my third time attending it and one of the best experiences I’ve had.
I got tagged by @memo-blogs <3 thanks!! I love these, as you might have figured out already ;)

Do you feel like doing this? Good, you’re now tagged! :D
I don't always talk to you, but you are my friend, and I took time specifically out of my schedule to meet you. It was nice & should the opportunity rise, I'll gladly do so again. You were one of the few people who got a card from me for xmas, too :)
Long story short - I see you and notice you, and you are enough. <3
Thank you, love. It’s just… I’m so lonely and I just want someone to hold me close and tell me that they love me as I am, and I’m trying to search for that someone. With no results. I had an opportunity last year with someone, but I totally destroyed that chance by not feeling the same and that was the end of it.
It’s, like… Everytime I like someone else, they don’t like me back. If someone happens to ACTUALLY LIKE ME I don’t like them back, even if I want to. So so so badly. Why do I have such bad luck with these things?!
And I’m trying as hard as I can. I actually asked from a friend if they were willing to go out with me, lol. I’m on various dating sites but whenever someone comes to talk to me, I freeze. Especially if they want to meet me.
For years I wasn’t interested in any relationships, but a year or so ago that changed and I to be loved and held so badly. I know I have friends and family who love me, but … I feel like that’s not enough!
What I crave the most is physical contact. Just… someone touching me. Stroking my hair, holding my hand, spooning with me, hugging me… sleeping in the same bed with me… But, at the same time, I’m denying myself that contact when people actually offer it to me, because I think I don’t deserve it.
You’ve got a pretty good handle on anatomy as is, and your style seems be pretty consistent. I know this isn’t probably what you want to hear, but you should focus on making your art look the way you want it to look.
The only thing that ever goes through my mind when I see a fat person exercising is "hey, you gotta start somewhere. At lest they're trying. Go random person! I believe in you!" Besides you aren't looking half bad :) And if you keep in the groove, you'll look even better <3
d'aww, thank you darling
and that’s what i always think when i see someone exercising who’s overweight
