Hello everyone! First off, I have a limited edition print available until Valentine's Day weekend of my She-Hulk cosplay. This is going to be a special run because I am coordinating with the photograher on this, so I actually paid for rights to this photo. here's hoping I at least make my money back lol. If you're interested in purchasing one, head on over to my Storenvy. 

Secondly, I have my cosplay lineup for Katsucon:

Friday: Nightingale Armor
Saturday: Terra from Teen Titans
Sunday: Spider Gwen

And here's my booth schedule, so you can see me at the Anime USA booth:
Friday: 4-8pm
Saturday: 10-3pm
Sunday: 9am-12pm 

And I'm doing something super special this year with my sponsor, Superheroes Unlimited. This year, I'm going to be doing a meet and greet/photo op/print signing at their booth on SUNDAY at 12-3PM. I've never done something like this before, so if you guys could come by and say hi, that would be amazing ^_^

I'm going to be taking a few weeks off DeviantArt due to encroaching deadlines and such, so if you want to see updates and new photoshoot sets, here's a few different social media sites that you can find my stuff on. Also, if you let me know that you're from DA, I'll follow you back! I love seeing my fans' and friends' current art projects!

Spider Crawl by mikomiscostumedworld
Spider Crawl
I did an action shoot this past weekend with the full Spider Gwen mask, shoes and everything! Funny story about this shoot time! Ok, so I was all worried about trying to do any parkour or free running stuff, because I had to wear moccasins instead of good sneakers or boots. I REALLY wanted to do some cool things, because well, Spider Gwen. So I decided to do some wall jumping and different stuff, and my moccasins actually had better grip than my combat boots for Mockingbird. Seriously, we were able to get multiple action shots with my designer shoes in a fraction of the time we were able to get the action shots of Mockingbird. It just really surprised the photographer and I, so I thought I'd share it :)

I Made a Patreon Account!

Fri Jan 15, 2016, 9:58 AM
Hello everyone! I have some big and fun announcements for you all! The first announcements are my con schedule for the winter. I am confirmed for Katsucon and MAGFest, both in National Harbor, MD this February. I haven't been able to go to either con since becoming a mother, so I'm super excited to be able to go back as a booth worker/attendee. I do not have my cosplay schedules lined up or my booth scheduled finalized yet, but once I do, I will be making a post with my schedules. I am looking to shoot at both conventions, though photoshoot time will be limited, so I can actually see friends that I haven't been able to see in three years! 

Now, onto what the journal entry was made for! I started a Patreon account today. I've been thinking about starting a Patreon account for several months now, and I've been weighing my options and reasons for creating an account. I actually had no idea that Patreon existed; I have had several fans actually suggest I get one in the past year, so I've been biding my time, researching everything. I started this account for two reasons.

The first and foremost reason is so I can have funding and a platform to teach costuming from. One of the main things that people constantly talk with me about is how do I create my costumes, what techniques do I use, what tools do I use, where do I purchase materials from. Well, I can list out a lot of this stuff easily enough, but I can't really TEACH people how to use these materials, tools, and techniques in the written medium. I need to show people via video how to do a lot of what I do. I also need to be able to answer questions live while showing people these techniques, which livestreaming will work perfectly for. I have had so much help learning different techniques and skills, and I want to provide my knowledge to others. 

The second reason is to help me continually create content for everyone. As I'm sure you guys have noticed this past year, I have posted far fewer photos and new costumes. The main reason behind this is that I have to take on a lot of commissions in order to continue cosplaying. I started doing commissions in 2015, so I could continue cosplaying and going to conventions. Having a child is extremely taxing, both financially and time wise, and my family comes first. Because of this, I did what was necessary to both help my family financially as well as keep cosplaying. Commissions actually work out very well for me monetarily: I've been able to provide a supplemental income for my family while staying home with my son, which is honestly an ideal situation. However, since I'm making so many costumes for others, by the time I can get around to making some for myself, I'm burnt out and very stressed for time. Two of the goals on there are for a new personal cosplay each month. This is mainly, so I can take on one fewer commission a month to focus on my own personal costuming and apprenticeship. Some of the new things I'm learning in my apprenticeship take up a lot of time, and because of this, I've had to put them on the backburner in order to take on more commissions. 

Well, those are my primary reasons for creating a Patreon: to teach others and to be able to continue my apprenticeship and learn new techniques myself. Here is a link to my Patreon, and if you'd like to support me, fantastic, if you don't, no hard feelings. Money's tight for a lot of people with our current world economy (myself included), so I completely understand if you can't support me :)
