Post KatsuconHey wow, it's been a while! February's been a very busy month, with two conventions back to back: Dallas Sci-Fi Expo and Katsucon. Unfortunately, I came down with strep throat the week prior to Katsu, so truthfully it probably wasn't the brightest idea to still attend ... but I had a great time regardless! Though, now I've caught a nasty cold ON TOP of all that, so transitioning from con to 'real life' hasn't been as smooth as it ought to be, lol.
I recently uploaded some pictures of Rei Ayanami and Catherine that I recently had photoshoots for, and there should be a few more of those coming, along with the costumes I wore at Katsu!
However, I'm much more active on my Facebook page, so follow me on there for the most updates: https://www.facebook.com/MelfinaCosplays
Facebook GiveawayHey~ So I made a Melfina plushie a little ways back, and will be giving her away when I reach 3000 likes on my Facebook page. If you haven't already followed my Facebook page (and feel inclined to do so), now is a good time!

geeklurvI don't think I've made an announcement here on DeviantArt about this yet, but I'm doing promotional work for geeklurv.com, an online dating site for "geeks"!
I have a discount code that will be valid for the rest of 2013 if you sign up for a subscription, as do many other cosplayers (which you can find and stack on top of eachother for a total of 73% off!).
My code is "melfina" (without the quotation marks, of course).
I also made a little graphic for it on my Facebook page HERE!!!

Arda Wigs Banner ContestHey everyone! I entered Arda Wigs' Banner Contest with my Utena costume, and would really appreciate it if you go and vote!

Thank you for looking!
April into MayHey everyone, sorry I've been kinda dead on here as of late. Cosplay has been picking up lately since Katsucon, and now summer con season is almost upon us! Next convention for me will be Dallas Comic Con, which is local to me. I will probably only go for one day, seeing as how I only made plans for it at all pretty recently. I haven't gone to a comic con since Megacon, and even that was multi-genre! I wish I had a comic book costume to wear for it, but with everything coming up all at once in May, I will not have time~
After that will be A-Kon, again here in Dallas. My friend MeruCosplay will be joining me, and I couldn't be more excited! We will be cosplaying Stakes (Umineko), idols (iDOLMster) and Wedding dress versions of Zero no Tsukaima characters (because we can! ).
I recently had an updated Movie version Utena photoshoot, which I am still posting pictures from.
Cons and Life and StuffSooooo, it's been a while since I last journal-posted up in here~
Katsucon came and went - I'm still deciding on what pictures to upload from it. Got new pictures of Sheryl and Neptune, and of course of the groups I was with (iDOLMster x2, and Umineko 7 Stakes).
Now I've got Anime Matsuri coming up next week in Houston, TX. Can't wait! Got nothing new planned for it, but I'd LIKE to at least start working on my new project before Matsuri, if I am ever able to order the darn fabric, lol.
Yeah, not much else goin' on! I post more frequently on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MelfinaCosplays
Deadness of LateWow yeah, so I haven't been on DA very much if at all lately - sorry guys!
I've been busy working on Katsucon costumes, so I've been limiting my online time while at home! 3 MORE WEEKENDS TO WORK ON STUFF. I don't usually save EVERYTHING for the 11th hour like this, honest. Moving and working full-time has put me behind schedule, and while both of those things are good, they kind of suck for cosplay productivity.
So yeah! Just wanted to quickly update here to let you guys know I haven't abandoned this place.
Oh! Also, I've recently become a Cosplay Ambassador for Crunchyroll: http://www.crunchyroll.com/
They're an official anime streaming site and online community! I've been watching anime through them for a while, and have noticed them having a presence at conventions more and more over the last year. I'm excited to say the least! Katsucon will be my first convention attending as an Ambassador, and I'll probably be hanging out at the Crunchyro
Season's Greetings~I hope you're all having a great time over the holidays!
Mine was a bit of a work-cation. I moved into a new house, which my husband and I bought. Our first house, yay~ And so, we used the long weekend to move all of our stuff and work on getting unpacked. My folks came from the Florida panhandle to visit and help us move, which I am very grateful for. We still have stuff sitting in boxes, but the place is looking better and better each day.
Katsucon is in less than two months. I need to get a move on with that. D: I'm a little stressed that I'm behind schedule, but it couldn't really be helped~
Overall, this year has been fan-tiddly-astic. ;D Cosplay kinda took a hit, but I'm looking forward to 2013 and being able to work on more new things.
I've been working on my cosplay website: http://melfinacosplay.com/ Making progress with getting more content up, and getting photos and construction notes up for each of my costumes.
Have any plans for New Years?

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried
