It's been SUCH a long time since I journaled so I figured I should write one and talk about what's being going on in my life, as well as explain my lack of art (and, oddly enough, increase of cosplay)
As was explained in a few of the images I have uploaded in the last few months, I lost my job at the end of last summer, was jobless for a month, then got a job and promptly moved into an apartment where I went without internet for four month. That would explain my non-posting from late November-mid March. Other then that? I dunno, my muse as mostly left me. I did a crapton of doodles back in the beginning of last year that I look at once in a while and go "I could work on that...but nah" I have really wanted to do some art but every time I begin, I end up getting bored with it. Every once in a while little urges will strike me but they leave before I can even lift a pencil. I haven't even colored in my coloring books, I've been so disenchanted. Nor have I really done any bit of writing. I'll write a few pages here and there, but then lose my thoughts and not touch it for weeks.
Well, it's not really that my muse left me, she just changed focuses. Jess and I are always discussing our next cosplays or getting together for random shoots. I'm obsessing over other people's cosplays and always counting down the days until the next con I can get my hands on (in fact, I'll be going to one next weekend for my birthday!!! AND meeting John Barrowman!!!!) I'm constantly dreaming up new photo shoots and researching future cos's. So yeah, expect more cosplay photos from me, I suppose. I'm always slapping on my ridiculous collection of wigs and having a go at it.
There is a reason for my switch in focuses. I haven't been able to do a musical or even a play in almost two years and I'm absolutely dying inside. Seriously...I stare longingly at pictures from shows and feel like crying I miss it so badly. So cosplay has been giving me the acting outlet I crave and thus my obsession to do it almost all the time. However, I am hoping that come next theatre season I will be finally dragging my butt back on a stage (fingers crossed!!!!!)
However, I am doing my best to work on art more often. I have been collecting new ideas and, of course, the news about Sailor Moon Crystal has me excited to try out that style. I do occasionally plug in my tablet and scratch out a few lines here or there. I'm hoping to soon present you lovelies with some new art!!!
I love you all!
