Was great coming to your show lady! Love your work :)
At http://graciehagen.tumblr.com/ ‘s photo show! I really enjoyed it :) Big fan of her work
Thanks so much dude! I work hard at both. I’ll try and post more art :p
I tend to feel like people just come for the modeling and cosplay, but I love it when my art is appreciated as well!
And thanks for liking my Yurika costume, not enough Nadesico love in the world!
I’ve been following you for a while now and only now felt the courage to write. First, I love your blog.You look like you have a lot of fun doing cosplay but I suspect your art is your big love. I’ve not been to many Cons, but I did take my daughter to a tiny little event close by on the weekend and those that dressed up seemed to be having a lot of fun. Doctor Who is definitely the fave of the moment, but there was a smattering of the usual Star Wars, Star Trek etc… Actually I was watching some vids on youtube, of a few of the big cons(?), they have here in London and my eldest daughter was quite taken with the idea of going to the next one in costume. Ramona Flowers is a favourite of hers and relatively easy to put together. Any tips? Not just on the costume, but on how to deal with the crowds and any unwanted attention(she’s 16)…
Got one last question, you’ve got some great shots on your DeviantART page, especially the retro, 40’s glam ones, have you ever thought of posting them on here? I was going to just copy and blog them on my page, but wasn’t sure if that would tick you off or if they’re copyright protected in some way. Before you think this message has an ulterior motive(just a smidge), I am a slightly smitten fan and would hate to do anything to piss you off, so this message ends…now. x
Well thank you so much for following me! I try to be very approachable to no worries about messaging me :)
Thanks for liking my work! I am a big fan of cosplay and sewing, but ultimately my true love is drawing. I’m glad you were able to take your daughter to a geeky event, even if it’s not that large it can still be fun! It’s also good for you two to spend time together. Ramona is definitely a wonderful beginner costume. It’s easy enough to put together, and she’s also a great character. I’m sure finding her bag, and a pair of goggles online is pretty easy. I’m sure she’ll do a great job, post pictures when she finishes!
It can be difficult to find a balance, but in the end it’s all about being respectful, but also make other people understand your boundaries. Never let anyone make you feel you HAVE to do anything you don’t want to do. If for example someone wants you to bend over in a costume pose you’re uncomfortable doing, just say no! You are at the show to have fun, you don’t owe anyone a pose just because you’re in a costume they like. I hope that helps your daughter have a fun time in costume!
As for my retro pin up pictures, feel free to post them anywhere you’d like :) I’m glad you like them. Just make sure to credit, that’s all I ask. The only reason they’re not on tumblr is I have such a large amount of photos at this point it gets difficult to manage them all across multiple social media account. Deviantart is where I try to post everything since I use it more.
Thanks again for the message and for being a fan <3
