Ha ha woah, so, it's been a really long time since I've been even remotely active here on dA. Sorry about that! For a while there I was really struggling at my old job, but I got a new job (which is awesome) and moved to Texas, and then almost immediately had my life taken over by Losing Altitude orders. (PRO TIP if you can, use a fulfillment service!) Anyway it's been rough. My living room is currently overrun with books and packing materials and packages waiting to be mailed.

ANYWAYS. I had been a little overwhelmed by dA lately but I'm going to try and at least sort of keep up around here. I know that a lot of you follow me mainly either for my cosplay and crafting, or for Losing Altitude. For Losing Altitude updates, the best place to follow is the Kickstarter page (see the link, above). Hopefully I will be getting a website together one of these days, too. As for cosplay, well...

Lately I've found that being an adult makes cosplay sadly rather difficult. Especially as I have a very physically demanding job, I rarely feel up to crafting after work, leaving me mainly with my "weekends." And, since I'm almost never able to run errands after work, I end up spending my weekends running around getting things done (and, lately, going to the post office and mailing out books!). But never fear! I think that as I get more settled I will find myself with more free time, and I still have plenty of plans. Going forward:

Here is my “cosplay schedule” for the next couple of years… Probably I won’t add anything major, but I’d definitely consider adding some quick and easy cosplays if someone was interested.

Right now: finish up Kikuka-chan’s jewelry and some accessories for roseofbattle, finish up non-cosplay projects (baby quilt, coat)

After that, I don’t really have any more cons planned until Katsucon, so here’s my plan:

-Work on some stuff for Katsu (re-do Chizeta!Umi, finish Hadi, maybe do a CLAMP no Kiseki piece if that group is still a thing)
-Work on Amira

After Katsu, my next con will probably be Colossalcon East:

-Swimsuit!Umi and redo Sailor!Umi
-Fix up Graduation!Tomoyo

I seriously doubt I could have Amira done for that event, but we’ll see!

After that, I’ll focus exclusively on finishing Amira, maybe for debut at Katsu 2018? Once Amira’s done there are a few “major project” costumes I’m seriously considering:

-FMA uniform (Hawkeye and/or Brigadier General Armstrong)
-This version of Umi, plus this gown

I'm also still taking some "mini commissions" if anyone is looking for something small!

Depending on who you ask, I'm either a ninja (or maybe a samurai?), a little bit eccentric, a genius, totally nuts, or a cat. Art is my hobby, science is my life, and I am finally a zoologist and it is awesome.

Currently I'm unemployed. I used to be an intern working with sea turtles (and before that, dolphins and sea lions). I'm hoping to find a job working with birds, especially birds of prey. Someday I plan on going to grad school and getting my doctorate in animal behavior.

Hey I was just wondering what's going on with the it dead?  I'm asking you b/c you're the only admin that seems to have been active in the last 30 days.  Thanks :)

Oh, um... I have no idea! I haven't been on dA much lately because of stress due to my job, so I'd just assumed things were running smoothly there!

LOL nope stuff is expiring and some people have left.  I understand not having the time to be on there, it's probably what happened to the others :)
Anyway thanks for the info!
