I came down to Trinidad for Carnival this year. IT WAS EPIC! So many parties (aka fetes) and so much amazing food was eaten! Most of this content can be seen on my instasgram: ladybacktoblack

I've decided NOT to attend Katsucon this year. I am really trying to save for Carnival and if I am to do so realistically, I can't go to Katsucon this year. There were some other factors but yeah. Sorry guys.

Both have come and gone. The after glow has faded to almost nothing now. Thankfully, I am friends with some of the people who attended and I see them fairly often enough. Needless to say, I had a blast~! The minute amount of pics I took are on my instagram.com/miesuku

Due to some issues with my hair spray (different brand and did NOT produce the desired effect I wanted), I decided to do a gender bent INSPIRED Nathan Seymour cosplay... thus Natalie was born. I tried to put my own spin on it so I hope you guys like it. I'm still on the hunt for the old brand of hair spray I used last NYCC. Hopefully I find it for Katsucon.

Yup. I'm going to Katsucon. It will be crazy because it is so close to when I leave for Trinidad for Carnival.

I MOVED!
STILL UNPACKING.

As for Otakon, I wore my unfinished Hanna, a hipster version of Hanna and Atsuko Jackson. I ran out of pink hair spray for Nathan unfortunately.

I'm going all 4 days to NYCC this year. SO EXCITED! Only cosplaying as Gym Version Nathan though. So quick and easy to get in and out of! I hope to see you guys there also. :)

Where has the time gone?!
Cosplay updates:
Went to anime Next ans saw so many amazing cosplayers... too bad my phone was dead. I AM going to Otakon but I have NO idea what my schedule will be like. I WANT to have Hannah finished ... FINALLY but we will see. Most likely brining Atsuko and Nathan since they take the least time to put on. I have TWO new cosplays in mind for NYCC. Hopefully it works out.

Camera updates:
I FINALLY got a Nikon D90. I know it isn't the newest model but I really liked the features and I got it at a great price. Looking into lenses now.

Life updates:
Turned.. well more than 21~! HAHAHAHAHA I'm loving it so far. I've been making major changes in my life and so far they seem positive. What else? I'm MOVING BACK TO NYC~! I am so excited too! I'm moving to a HUGE pre-war apartment in a nice neighborhood too. My luck is just unbeliveable. I have a roommate already and she seems nice enough. Also, I'm an AUNT! I dunno if I already mentioned that but yeah. My niece is 7 months old already! Precious little girl that she is and SO WELL BEHAVED. I hope I am as lucky as my sister is. I've been super busy with the Otakon museum stuff so pardon the absence. I hope you guys check it out if you have a chance~!

Anyways, I have to upload my Demon Hannah cosplay from Katsucon. I think I only uploaded it to Tumblr by accident. Whoops.

WOW. Time sure flies.
So many changes, some good and some not so good.
I've seen may artists grow on this site. I'm always glad to see that happen.
I have also seen artists leave this site or just disappear/stop updating all together.
My mind runs on them from time to time. Hoping that they are still getting a joy our of creating something.
I used to LOVE drawing but now I don't even make time for it. How times have changed.

As for Katsucon, I'm going~!
No idea if I'm going to cosplay.
Hope to see some familiar faces though. :)

Wow. It has been a while, hasn't it? My last post was August... probably right after Otakon. Not much has gone on except for the following:

Paolo was sent to get a faceup and his body blushed. His eyes arrived today! YAY!
Cosplayed as Nathan Seymour from Tiger and Bunny during NYCC this year.
Started working with a fashion designer doing social media work.
Planning on starting my style blog next year.

Hopefully I'll  have my Hannah cosplay FINALLY finished since I'll be going to Katsucon next year. Hope to see you guys there!

I guess that is it! Don't forget to follow me on twitter and Tumblr: miesuku

Been back from Otakon and Toronto for a few days now. Trying to decide on my next move... career wise and artistically. I really do miss taking photos a great deal. Tempted to sell Aubrey's head and put the proceeds towards a Nikon DSLR. On the career front, I want something that is a regular 9-5 Monday to Friday. I can't take working the off shift and alternating weekends/holidays anymore. 7+ years of it is really enough. The only things keeping me there are my health benefits. It isn't even the pay anymore because I barely get by.

I've also taken a liking to the fashion consulting I've been doing lately. I find it very interesting but I don't have enough time to do it as often as I would like to, due to my work schedule. Fall semester is fast approaching and I have no idea if I want to go back, or just keep working and save money.

When my last final ends tomorrow, I plan on kicking it into high gear with my cosplays. I have to finish Demon Hannah's skirt and Atsuko's blouse and shoes. Aside from that, I'm all set for con!

I am EXTREMELY happy that DA has finally decided to do this after 9 years. I have been stuck with this username far too long for it to be relevant to anything in my life for a number of years now. I will however, take my time in deciding on a new username. Something that I can tolerate for the long haul. I was thinking of making it simply miesuku but my twitter and tumblr are not related to my deviations so why make the name similar, ya know? I even thought about using my old blog name, but decided against that also.

I want a fresh start.

Just super busy.
Things home were pretty bad the last 2-3 months. I haven't had time for much. Thankfully I can queue posts on Tumblr in advance. Twitter is always done on the go. But actual blog posts take time.

I ALMOST had a commission for Aubrey. Shit went south home so that was out. really debating on just selling her. I saw another sculpt.. sadly male, that would suit her better.

Summer class starts next week and I am dreading it. I need to study up and get my books once I get paid this week.

On the cosplay front, I wasn't planning on going to anime next but things changed. I may bring Demon Hannah if I can get the rest of it done.

Also, thank you guys so much for favoriting my cosplay. It really means a lot to me and my team. We slaved over this for several months and we are happy that you guys like it so much.

Paolo's body came in earlier this month. I wasn't able to be there when it was delivered so there it sat at my post office for almost two weeks. I was finally able to pick it up the day I was flying out to Trinidad for carnival. I am EXTREMELY pleased with it. Soom has done it again! Now I can send it out to have it blushed and the head painted! Clothes shopping is also on the table. The only issue now is that I still have Adrian's body that does not match his head. I guess I will have to hunt for an older SSDF body since it would be less time consuming than getting a new Dia male AND getting the mods done. UGH. I wish I could just be done with it and simply dress and photograph my dolls already.

Speaking of photography, my dinky point and shoot camera is falling apart... literally. That thing has been through the war and has kept on trucking. God bless it's mechanical little soul. I'm due for an upgrade anyways. I can't wait for the new camera models to come out so I can buy something. For now, I will have to wait and save, per usual.

I FINALLY figured out how to upload my cosplay pic on cosplay.com.... FINALLY.
I sort of gave up trying to figure it out after NYCC/AF but on a whim, I decided to try again today. I will upload the rest of the photos later though. Below is the link to my gallery~! :heart:

My DA turned 8 yesterday! I can't believe I've been on here for that long. So many great artists came/stayed or went into the ether, but I still love what the site is here for. Amazing and inspiring art. I stay logged in and never view the front page or recent DDs so I don't really notice most things other long time users complain about. That being said, I hope to meet as many of you as I can this year and beyond. I've made friends with some truly amazing people on here and I wish for it to continue.

On the camera front, I am still looking to buy a Nikon DSLR. I am glad to say I have narrowed it down to 3 choices... FINALLY.

Paolo's body was shipped yesterday. I can't wait till it arrives! The only problem now is to get a SSDF body for Adrian again. His Super Gem body is too peach. As for Aubrey, still no luck with finding a body that matches. I may have to find another sculpt for her.

First off, Happy new year to you all. I hope this year will bring you many good things.
I sit in work and make a list of all the things I need to get done by certain months this year. Pretty daunting actually, but if I keep on track, I should be able to accomplish my goals. Some goals are personal (i.e. work out more often!). Some are bjd related (get Aubrey a body. Get paolo painted etc). Some are cosplay related (Work on Hannah's skirt thing. Finalize the other 2 cosplays by April.). Some are art an design related (get back into doing art and design.. even if it is only a hobby now.). I REALLY have to structure my days to the minute, I guess.

Saa... so much to do this year. I am really trying to keep on track! Wish me luck.

Paolo's head (Soom Obsidius) came today! I am so happy. I have been dreaming of getting the perfect sculpt for him and I think I have finally found it. There was another sculpt that I liked but the doll itself was far too small. I have to rework his actual image (he won't be a scruffy/manly man & slightly lumberjack-esque) but everything else will be the same. I am so excited! His body will (hopefully) be here by the end of January! In the mean time, I need to make some sales so that i can finally get my DSLR!

Just letting you guys know that I am selling some lolita clothing items to raise funds for my Nikon DSLR.
Some of the pieces are brand new while others may be gently used or vintage:

Ebay red and black lolita listing

Livejournal selling page *The creamy white set shall be broken up and sold as separate Mori girl sets! Please note me if you are interested!*
I had an amazing time. My first ever cosplay as Demon Hannah Anafeloz was a success! Sadly it is back to the daily grind.
Thank you all for the kind words and support. I hope to get proper studio shots of this eventually. An iPhone can only do but so much.

So I bought a new laptop!
MacBookPro 13"!

I've been sorting through many things and I've decided to not use my other account :iconmiesuku: right now. I've gotten a renewed sense of purpose and I've been tinkering with some things on my end. I hope you guys look forward to what I have in store.

By the way, feel free to follow me on Twitter~! Miesuku
