back from the dead

My god, it has been a long time.  I abandoned ship a while ago during finals, and I just haven’t gotten back on board yet.  Well here is a shoot I did for my Litchi costume for Christmas.  Yay for snow shoots!  Did you know you can actually scrape up your skin on snow?  Well you can!  But even with frostbitten feet and all, this shoot came out incredible, and was also my first professional shoot, done by this lovely lady.

Litchi Faye-Ling Cosplay

I fell in love with Litchi Faye-Ling as soon as I discovered Blazblue.  I’m such a sucker for a girl in glasses.  And you may as well rock what you’ve got.  A group of my friends decided to do a Blazblue group for a digital gaming carnival put on by the campus chapter of ACM, and I made three costumes for it.  I wore Litchi Faye-Ling, and made Tsubaki and Taokaka, as well as accessories for Makoto.  The rest of the costume for Makoto was made by Black-Yuki, who also made her own Noel costume.

Here is our whole group together

These are the costumes I primarily made

This is my first blog post, and I thought I’d use it to talk about what I intend to do with the blog.  I want to use it to increase my visibility, hopefully to put me on the right track to being able to support myself with my work.  I love to sew, and have been sewing since I was five years old.  I didn’t discover anime and cosplay until I was in college, mostly because my parents think that anime is the devil’s work.   But I have been making up for lost time, watching lots of shows and making lots of costumes!  In addition to sewing, I love to knit and play guitar.  Eventually, I want to make a living selling what I make.  In this blog, I want to talk about the things I make, and highlight other fantastic artists.  For those of you curious about my username, I’ll let you in on the secret… When I discovered anime, I had to create an account on so I could read the dirtier fan fiction!  I was embarrassed about it, so… hence the name.  Anyway, let the general nerdiness begin!
