I've been cosplaying on and off for the last 10 years, mostly for conventions and Shadowcasts. I really enjoy the reverse engineering that goes into figuring out how to take a costume from the screen into the real world and working with new materials and techniques. My favourite fandoms include Star Trek (specifically TNG and Voyager), Harry Potter (Ravenclaw for life!), Doctor Who/Torchwood, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Anne Rice Vampire Chronicles, The Dresden Files, and a bit of Star Wars.\r\n\r\nI also LOVE horror movies and the macabre and supernatural.
I like perusing rule 34 fanart. ☺️

So I know a lot of people feel that New Year's Resolutions are cliché or too often doomed to fail, but a new year always brings a sense of new hope. If last year was crappy, maybe this year will be better. If you're not satisfied with the progress you made last year, a fresh start can help renew hope for growth. Year long goals can seem daunting and overwhelming once the glam of the ball drop has worn off. So maybe quarterly or monthly progress goals or "bite sized" resolutions could be more effective for you. Either way, I want to hear your plans for the new year and maybe the smaller steps you're planning on taking to reach your goals. For me, 2019 will be all about valuing myself and setting healthy boundaries for myself. That may look like learning to say "no" to projects that'll overwhelming me or when I don't have the bandwidth to do emotional labor for others. I also plan on being more active, starting in January with taking the stairs at work and whenever possible. Bite sized goal. As far as creativity, my goal is to make more costume items from scratch, try my hand at making non-cosplay items for myself, and to branch out creatively into something new. Not sure what that last part will look like. Lol What hopes do you all have for the new year and how can those in your life maybe even in this forum, help keep you on track to achieve them? <3 Selene
