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

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

Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damned
Halloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?
Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobell
We all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas

Who needs enemy aliens — when the oddities of space travel itself are so mind–blowing?
Terraforming 1.1 by Wasteland-3D
s the following gallery of landscapes of deviantARTist–imagined other worlds well attests to — the natural desire of humans to explore and discover knows no bounds, not even the limits of the Earth’s atmospheric shell. Whatever’s out there, beyond our galaxy: we want to put eyes on it. But space travel presents quite a problem.
Collection: Forgotten PastShare
schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting.
“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.”
