I'm a lurker here, since I'm no artist myself, but I love looking at other people's creations. My interests lie primarily in fanart and costuming/cosplay relating to Cats the musical.|
I'm a Cats cosplayer myself and part of a group who for the last few years, have been catting it up at MCM London Expo. I do my own make up and most of my costumes are commissioned or part self-made and part commissioned.
I'm a theatre geek in general, and it's certainly the industy in which I'm currently trying to build a career. I also figure skate for fun. Oh and I'm a self-confessed forum-based rpg addict.
Current Residence: UK
Wow, it's been a while! I was right when I said this wouldn't be a regular thing!
But well, a lot of my friends are jetting off to Dragon*Con (totally not envious, not at all...) this week, so gotta find something to fill my time. Also, having started watching a new anime (new to me that is, I think it's actually been around long enough) series of course has nothing to do with it. Totally haven't just been on here looking for fanart of my latest pretties...
Actually, things are pretty good just now. Wedding in 3 months, one week and four days. So plenty of organising there keeping me busy. Most of it good, though juggling so many things in your head at once can get a wee bit stressful, especially when there are deadlines. For now, I'll relax when we've picked our music, readings and wording choices for the ceremony.
Not much to report by way of costume work, since I'm not really doing any of my own just now. All my money is going on rent, bills, food and wedding! Couple of commission pieces including a Broadway-style unitard fluffying. I haven't done one of those since my own Broadway Alonzo costume, I forgot how slow-going it is, lol! Still, it'll be done by the deadline, just working on a little bit every day, since doing too much at once hurts my eyes. Speaking of old costumes, I did revamp my old Electra costume to wear to the UK Tour of Cats last month. It's one of my older ones and had been leant out a few times, so it was well in need of some TLC. Took it into my head to do the revamp about two days before the show, so it was pretty manic. Still I managed to repaint the unitard, heat set it, re fluffy it, fix the broken shoulder closures and re-fluffy it within 48 hours. Pretty pleased with the results too, I was never sure if I was going to keep the costume or sell it. But the repaint has helped me feel like wearing her again, so she's making a con appearance at October Expo.
Anyway, time to sign off. Totally need to get something done in the hour I have left before work!
