Restoration Magic by mikomiscostumedworld
Restoration Magic
I was just going through my galleries today, and I realized that I haven't posted many photos of my Skyrim cosplays :( Well, I aim to change that! This is a photo taken last year at Anime Central 2014. Fun fact about this shoot: this was my first shoot for a cosplay magazine! The first time I met the guys from We Rise Magazine, they were doing press coverage for Anime USA, when I was about 9 months pregnant, so obviously not in any condition to waddle long distances, let alone get into full cosplay and do photoshoots! I randomly ran into Joe again in Chicago of all places, and we decided to shoot that weekend on a spur of the moment. The Black Cat photos and Dark Brotherhood photos I have are the product of our randomness, and I very much like them ^_^

I Have a New Laptop Charger!

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 9, 2015, 8:59 AM
I got my new laptop charger in the mail earlier this week! I also came down with the plague again, so I've been bedridden since Sunday. I'm hopefully going to be totally better by this weekend, so I won't fall too far behind schedule on stuff.

Anyways, stuff! I have a lot of announcements for you guys, and I'm going to start off by talking about my new sponsor, RE:Activ Designs! They are an Esports clothing company who uses a brand new type of smart fabric for their clothing line called, Kymira. It is a really cool fabric that helps regulate ideal body temperature, increases blood flow, and it's actually REALLY nice stretch fabric. They sent me several yards of their black and white Kymira fabrics to test out for it's cosplay application, since they are looking at offering the fabric to cosplayers. I'm about 60% done with my Mockingbird cosplay, and this is probably my new favorite stretch fabric to work with, no joke. It's very opaque, so you don't have to use multiple layers, which is super nice, and it is sturdy. A lot of stretch material I've used is very flimsy and slippery when you're sewing it together, and while this stuff is a bit slippery, it's no where near as bad as anything else I've worked with. I am going to be posting several Youtube videos on their product as well as a basic bodysuit tutorial series. I plan on debuting Mockingbird at Garden State Comic Fest later this month :)

This leads me into my next announcement, I'm going to be a Cosplay Guest at Garden State Comic Fest in Morristown, New Jersey July 25-26th! I'm so freaking excited about this, since it will be both the first NJ con I'll be going to as well as my first comicon guest appearance! The organizers have been fantastic as far as communication goes and very accommodating, which has made me even more excited about this ^_^ I will be bringing my travel booth set up including mini and full size prints and superhero masks. I was debating about bringing some of my for sale cosplays and props, but I just don't think that I'll have the space in my car to bring them. I also will have my brand new banner for my booth, which I'm really excited about. I feel legitimized as a guest now that I have my own booth banner lol. It's stupid, I know, but I just feel like it'll make me more official on the con floor, you know? 

I mentioned this in a previous paragraph; I've started my Youtube channel up again! I've had a few sponsorships this summer, and I need to do product reviews for the companies who've sponsored me. I've also been getting a lot of people asking me to do tutorials on how to make things, so I'm going to be doing that as well. I love giving back to the cosplay community, and I feel like the best way I can do that, within my current means, is by having videos answering construction and craftsmanship questions. I'm not Yaya or Kamui, but I'll be showing you guys the best ways that I know how to make things, and I hope it will benefit you in any future costume projects.

As far as my daily life is concerned, it's been going ok. I'm over my depression for the most part, and I'm beginning to adjust better to being a mother. My son is developing right on track, and is super curious about everything. Seriously, I think he's going to be an engineer when he gets older; he's already figured out how to unlock my car door and start my car (all under helicopter mom's eye, I guarantee you). The biggest struggle for me lately is learning when to say "no" to an opportunity. I've had a lot of great things happen cosplay wise for me this year, and it's been hard picking and choosing which offers to take. A few years ago, I would've been able to take all of the opportunities I've been gifted with, but now, since I have a son and my time is severely limited, I've had to say no to commissiions, collaborations, or projects that I wouldn't have had to decline in the past. It's not because I don't want to work with these people, it's just because I will literally work myself to an early grave if I don't slow down. I also FINALLY started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition at the insistence of my husband. This is probably my favorite DA as far as combat is concerned. Now, as far as the soft skills, like conversations, romance, ect. I don't like it as much. They made it way too easy to build up your characters' opinions of you, and I feel like it takes some of the fun out of it. Like, I'm now not going to pick the option that I want to pick, because in the dialogue screen, it shows me which options will piss off the person I'm talking to. They also made the romance option way to quick and easy in this game. I legit already started a romance with Cullen in under 30 hours of gameplay. I'm pretty sure I only talked to the dude like 5 times. I don't feel like we should be making out on the battlement after only 5 conversations, but hey, that's just me I guess. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE Leliana's new character design, and I will probably be making her outfit for a new cosplay in 2016 ;)
