Flower Power by mikomiscostumedworld
Flower Power
This is my first preview photo from my shoot for InGear Fashion's 2015 swimwear line! I absolutely LOVE their products, and I'm so happy I get to be a sponsored affiliate model for them ^_^ I'm wearing a suit from their Heart and Soul line, and you can purchase your's through my affiliate link! If you purchase through my link, it'll automatically give you a 20% discount, which I think is pretty awesome! Also, if you wanted anything else in the store, you can use my affiliate code to receive 20% off anything from their website. I AIM TO SAVE YOU GUYS MONIES!!!! 

I also made the flower crown specifically for this shoot, and now that the shoot is over, I'm going to sell my flower crown! I only wore it once for about an hour, so it's essentially brand new! I have it listed in my Storenvy shop, which I'll link here as well :) Another thing, since it's my birthday month, I have a bunch of sales going on in my Storenvy, including, buy one full sized print, get one free mini print! I don't have a coupon code for it, so you just need to mention which mini print you want in the comment section of your checkout. I also have loads of prints up to 50% off, so check out all of the things :D I'm also going to make this photo and several other photos from this shoot prints in my storenvy, so that'll be happening as I get edits back from the photographer.

Hello everyone! I'm going to use my new favorite journal skin, since this is my last week of having a Premium Membership! Last year, :iconkngdmhrts2: was kind enough to gift me with a year long premium membership, so I want to give a shout out to him being awesome :) Also, he does really amazing pencil art from Kingdom Hearts if you want to give his stuff a look. I love his traditional drawings, and he's also a really sweet guy (I have him on Facebook).

Tanoshiicon was marvelous! I had such a great time meeting new fans, going to my first Pennsylvania convention, leading panels, and wandering aimlessly around their dealer's room. I was actually pleasantly surprised with how good of a dealer's room they had; there was great selection as well as a good layout. Also, my panels went really well. I lead three panels there, one for the first time, and I had above half capacity on every panel. My Cosplay 101 panel (the new one) actually had max capacity! Everyone had such good questions as well during my Q&A sessions, which was really nice. I also had a fun roadtrip with Amy from Conley Craftsmen Fantasy Arms; she went as my minion/handler ^_^ Finally, one of the super cool things about Tanoshiicon is that they had a kimono dealer who didn't price gouge! I was able to buy my under kimono for $20! I'm so excited I was able to find one, so now I can wear my formal kimono to events and for photoshoots :D

I got my special order fabric in for Stella, so I've made quite a bit of progress on it. I'm on schedule to finish her corset today, which I'm excited about. I also finished her tutu this week. The tutu is so fluffy, I literally have no words to describe it; you'll just have to see it :P The corset looks good, and I tried a new thing with the boning, but I'm thinking that I may have fudged up when placing the boning. I don't know, I mean, it looks good and followed the pattern, but I think because of my body type, I needed to alter the boning to not go over bust? IDK, I'll figure it out in the next corset I make for myself lol.

I did my first bikini shoot for InGear Fashions Inc. this week as well! It was super fun; I did more of an artistic style shoot on location at a secluded pond in the middle of the woods. The location was so beautiful, and the lighting was perfect. I can't wait to show you guys how everything turned out. I'm still a bit self conscious about my post baby body, but I think that doing swimsuit modeling is helping with that rather than hindering.

Finally, I have a fun announcement! I'm officially working for AUSA again as their convention coordinator! This is like my dream job with any convention as it is basically running their traveling booth for other geek events. I've been doing booth work with them since 2012, and it's so cool to have gotten a position in the convention where my passion lies. This also means that I'm able to attend a lot more conventions on the East Coast! As of right now, I am officially going back to Animazement in Raleigh, NC MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND, MAY 22ND!!! I've never been able to go to a con on my birthday, so I'm super excited about this ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ I'm hoping that if I can continue this type of progress, that I can debut Stella there, but no promises.

As far as my life right now is concerned, it's just been full of sewing and business decisions. My husband just got promoted at work again, so we may actually move up a tax bracket this next fiscal year; that's still blowing my mind, not going to lie. We started out making below the poverty line when we got married, and now we're almost able to actually start a savings account (after we pay off the huge college debt we've accrued). I've been finishing up commissions due by Awesomecon, and I've also been working on my personal portfolio. I've done so many badass characters lately, that I'm trying to make some girly and frilly stuff to even it out. I'm also in the process of a super secret original design costume, so I can add costume design to my portfolio. Little factoid, when applying for an industry sewing job, in order to put that you are a costume designer, you need to actually create a costume's design; not just make something from a fictional world. However, being able to label yourself as a costume designer is very broad; you just need to have 2 or more original costumes in your portfolio. Personally, I'm not really too interested in becoming a contracted costume designer; I rather like just being a stitcher, but I know it could open up a lot of doors down the road, so I figure that I might as well keep my options open. Plus, the one thing I'm working on, I've had floating around in my head for a few years now, and I was able to find an integral part of the costume base at the dollar store :P

As you know, I've recently received a bunch of new swimwear from InGear Fashions. Well, their bikinis have easily been some of the best bikinis I've gotten in the past few years, and they are way more affordable than other brands I've purchased before. Personally, I LOVE their DC line of swimwear, and I think their Batman monokinis are especially cute *hint hint* If you click on my link, you can use my special discount

Hello everyone! I had a FANTASTIC weekend at Con of the Mountain this past Saturday! I was super fun, the staff were great, the townspeople were great, my costume turned out well, and we had a great first full booth setup! My panels went well, and I made some new friends as well :D I have some photos of Honey Lemon, but they were taken on my smartphone, so the quality isn't high enough for me to put on here, BUT if you go to www.facebook.com/mikomiscostumedworld you can see my photos on there until I get a photoshoot in with her :) I'm also guesting at Tanoshiicon up in Pennsylvania this Saturday, so for all you New England folk, keep an eye out for me! I'm running a smaller, travel size version of my booth, and I'm leading three panels. I'll have my schedule posted at the bottom of this journal entry.

As far as the "Fairies" is concerned, I have officially started work on my Harmonix version of Stella from the Winx Club! I have about half of her tutu done, and I've started work on her wings! I'm waiting for the corset fabric and second half of the tutu fabric to ship to me, but once that's here, I'll be able to really start working on her! I don't have a specific convention that I'm debuting her at; I'm just happy to finally be at the skill level to make one of my dream costumes ^_^ Also, something to note about Stella, I've done some constructional changes to her as well as tinkered with the color scheme a bit. I look absolutely horrid in pale yellow, so I'm using orange and pink as her primary colors. Also on the wings, I'm using ombra chiffon to make them have the faded gradient look they have in the show. I'm also going to be bedazzling the crap out of the whole ensemble, because if I'm going to be a fairy princess, by God, I'm going to sparkle like one!

My print and costume shop is OPEN again! I'm opening it for my birthday, and I also have sales going on! For prints, if you buy an 8x10" or larger print, you get one free mini print of your choosing; just tell me which one you want in the checkout process. I also decreased the prices of several prints, since it will be their last runs! I also have some costumes for sale, and I'll be adding superhero masks as well in the next week or so.  Prints are one of the ways that I fund making costumes, other than doing costume commissions. Since I'm still a stay at home mother, I'm very restricted with how many commissions I'm able to make a year, and because of that, I have to limit how many personal costumes I make and how many conventions I go to. Print sales and selling cosplay accessories and costumes really helps me be able to travel to cons outside my local area :)
