I'm Not Messing Around by mikomiscostumedworld
I'm Not Messing Around
I'm busy busy busy finishing costumes right now, and I'm so happy about it! I'm working on my final spring commission, and then once it's finished, I'm going to be opening up my summer commission block! I'll have one or two spots open for summer commissions, so if you're interested in hiring me for costume design, let me know ASAP! My spots have been filling up really quickly, this year, and I unfortunately can only take a very limited number of commissions per year (or else I won't have time to make any costumes of my own!)

My shoes for Honey Lemon are complete! Now, to finish the armor base today :)
My son loves trying on my Honey Lemon armor whenever I leave it on the floor. It's adorable because since it's essentially an armored sports bra on me, it's like a full set of heavy armor on him ^_^

Spring Schedule and Costume Progress

Mon Mar 16, 2015, 11:51 AM
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Disney songs
  • Reading: leatherworking books
  • Watching: Game of Thrones
  • Playing: BL Pre Sequel
  • Eating: pizza taco
  • Drinking: white grape juice
Hello everyone, it's been such a long time since I've made one of these! I've been SWAMPED with costuming and scheduling the past few months, and it has kept me from updating you all with my daily life as frequently as I would like :-/ Well, I will say that Mysticon last month was AMAZING! Seriously, the con was fantastic! I had such a great time running almost a dozen panels, meeting industry guests (and leading panels with some), and judging the masquerade! I got to learn a great deal about judging from my other judges, and I'm so thankful they took the time to teach me how to run a proper show :) 

My spring schedule is completely booked solid, and I'm so surprised! I can't list out all of the events I'm doing this spring, since some of them aren't made public yet, but every weekend between March 28th and May 1st is booked. I'm now booking for summer cons, though I only have enough time to be a guest at maybe one more con (I want to have a life this summer with the family). 

My costumes are coming along pretty well I think. I'm almost done with Nisha from Borderlands: The Pre Sequel, and I'm about a quarter of the way finished with Honey Lemon. Those are the only two costumes I'm currently working on for myself, since I've been finishing up commissions for others. I just turned in a costume from the Supernatural character, Charlie, to a client this morning, and I'm *hopefully* finishing up a Chihiro from Spirited Away today as well. Then, the big commission that I have for the spring is Edward Kenway from Assassin's Creed: Black Flag which I'm going to hopefully be finishing by the end of April. That one is going to be very labor intensive, so I'm trying to get my personal costumes done before I start it; that way, my attention isn't divided. Once I finish Nisha this week, I have one more costume that I'm going to make this spring and that is Stella from the Winx Club! I've been talking about making her Harmonix transformation for years now, and I'm finally at the skill level where I feel comfortable tackling it! I already have the tutu and wing fabric, so I plan on starting the tutu *hopefully* this week :) 

Well, like I said, I've been busy busy busy sewing costumes, and I love it! I just want to give a big thanks to everyone who's been hiring me this year. I honestly didn't think that I would be able to make cosplay self sustaining, but apparently, when there's a will, there's a way. I know that we're still early into 2015, but I've kept to my New Year's resolution this whole time to not use any of my regular money to go to cons or make costumes. It makes me feel so happy at the end of the day that I'm able to do this, and I hope to continue being able to do this. It's really hard work, but it's worth it ^_^

MY SPRING EVENT SCHEDULE (WHAT'S FINALIZED ANYWAYS):
March 28th: Lost Level +Up Special Guest and Costume Contest Judge

April 18th: Con of the Mountain Cosplay Guest

April 20th: Guest Lecturer at Lynchburg College on the influence of cosplay in pop culture media and marketing

April 25th: Tanoshiicon Cosplay Guest

May 3rd: Spoutwood Fairy Festival (my birthday con/present from my husband!)


I'll keep updating this list when things get announced/finalized :)
