I would absolutely relive this last year. It was pretty great, even though I have had some really stressful moments. I had good times with family, and I really finally pushed myself with cosplay to a point I am very proud of. Black Mask, made at my roommate's request, was stressful as fuck, but in the end I learned SO much about knit, bodysuits, top stitching, hand sewing, leather wet molding, painting acrylic leather paint, paint stripping, chemical safety, worbla shaping and patterning, and even messing with fairy lights even though electronics really go over my head. And while I gave up 3 months of evenings for it, we got 1st place and I finally feel like I completed something on time. Without the plethora of tutorials online though, I couldn't have done half of this.( Collapse )
There was also a lot of personal growth I feel like I had with my closest friendships. I cut off some relationships that I was not happy with and it was a painful decision to make, but I made it all on my own and I'm content with myself at how it turned out even if the final resolution never really went anywhere on the other half. If I had clung to the safety of what I wanted out of it, I would have hurt both myself and my best friend, but I didn't. I'm in a great place now, I chose what I valued most, and to me that's the most important.
AND THEN I GOT INTO ONE PIECE - HOW COULD I CUT THAT OUT OF MY LIFE?! I've cried and laughed so much, they are literally my favorite characters ever!2) What is your most mundane encounter with a celebrity?
This is difficult. It's not like I meet a ton of celebrities but at cons I've run into various voice actors and would you call that mundane? I've ridden in a Lyft with a guy that did some superhero TV actor gigs for DC I think? He was talking about it because comics came up, but I wasn't too interested, lol... So I followed him on insta for a while but then lost interest.
I think maybe just hanging around way back in the day at an A-kon in like 1999 I was standing next to Tiffany Grant and she was chilling with other fans in an Asuka costume that I believe she said was given to her by another fan. It's so long ago I am sure my memory of it is botched, but it was cool to look back on even if I wasn't even into EVA that I ran into her. The memory really stands out. 3) What's the best advice you've ever received and ignored?
Uh. Probably to start costumes early, don't procrastinate, and go to bed on time...
Or maybe to not dwell on things I can't change. Oops.
About that procrastination, last night I passed out and did not sew. Tonight...
