Okay, but can I just live in a seifuku forever? 




Happy Lunar New Year! I'm celebrating my trying to get ALL of the beautiful new skins on Overwatch right now. Mercy's is so pretty and of course, I love D.Va's.
I played all day today in (and then out) of costume!

NewCon PDX



I'm baaaaack from NewCon! Spent an amazing weekend up in Portland with a handful of other awesome Cosplay Deviants- what a weekend! Oh, and I finally wore both Melisandre and Black Widow to a convention! They were both well received. Can you tell I have a thing for all kind of redheads??





SnotGirl


Quick little test run of my Snot Girl cosplay 



A little preview of a set I shot while visiting back home in California. And yes, I am all wrinkly when I take my necklace off.



Currently working on Widowmaker from Overwatch!

Do you guys have any magazines that you enjoy reading/looking at?


Or as I like to call it, "PLEASE DON'T LET PRINT DIE, I LOVE MAGAZINES."
I've been doing my best to not be lazy and actually try to get published before all of my favorite magazines are gone. (RIP Bizarre). Here are a two from the end of 2014- Auxiliary and the adult magazine Goomah. I'm also in the upcoming issue of Gothic Beauty Magazine as well as Kat Club No.9 by Retro Lovely (which I might snag a cover for!)

(Not in full costume there, but if you can guess the character then we should probably be bffs)




Shot the McDonald's girl look on the left, my little ode to The Fifth Element, which is the first SciFi movie I ever fell in love with as a kid.

I also shot BloodRayne and totally spaced on taking behind the scenes photos of it! But I swear it was sexy goodness.

Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, no matter what you celebrate, or even if you don't celebrate at all :)

As always, if you'd like to add to my cosplay closet and see me in even more sets, you can always check out my Amazon Wishlist!


So I just got back home to SoCal from my trip up North, and let me just tell you.... I shot the shit out of sets, they are killer, and I'm so proud.

Here are a few sneak peeks for you kitties.

AYYYYOOOOO!

Sorry I've been so quiet around here! My husband and I got approved for a house and it was all so spur of the monent- really threw us for a loop, but we're all settled in now! (If you'd like to get me a little house warming gift, you can find my wishlist here! )

Aside from that, my skin went craaaazy so I stopped shooting for a while- (I suffer from psoriasis) but I'm finally on new medication, which means I'm gonna be getting back to shooting like ASAP. I have four cosplays that need to be shot, and I'm keeping one of them top secret because I'm just way to stoked on it and I don't wanna jinx myself in anyway. I'll finally be shooting my Purple Heart though, which some of you got to see at Anime Expo! I'll also be shooting BloodRayne AND Black Widow :) I'm really diggin' being a redhead, so I'm sort of like, "SHOOT ALL OF THE RED HEADED CHARACTERS!" Plus, I've loved BloodRayne since hi...

After a year of being super cramped in my little studio apartment- I'm finally moving into a house! I found out today- and I pick up my new keys in just SIX DAYS!

This means: I now have an indoor location to shoot killer sets. I have space to be on webcam uninterrupted. I have room to work on my cosplays without having my cats attack everything. I'M SO EXCITED!


If you guys would like to get me a housewarming gift, check out my Amazon Wishlist- most of the items on it are cosplay related- but hey, I can sleep on a nice pile of costumes! :)
