Hello my pretties, I hope everyone is well!

I recently got back from NemaCon and I've just about recovered from the weekend and the week of work I had as soon as I got back (why I didn't book it off I'll never know...).

Anyway, since I have lots to update you on, I'll split them into sections so you can skip over anything you don't want to read!

So, lets get started shall we? 

- NemaCon

I had a great first time at NemaCon, and as will all cons I wish it didn't have to end!
I tagged along with my lovely friends Melissa and Calum from DragonJacketPro who were kind enough to put me up for the weekend and it was great getting to spend time with them properly!

I also got to meet a lot of my online friends as well as some new ones, and apparently, some of my 'fans' who were really nice about my costumes ^.^ thank you guys!

On the Saturday I went as Alice, and Mel joined me as Oz - we were such a beautiful pair.
It was great to have a cosplay partner and everyone else seemed to like it too!
We masqueraded together, as well as getting some beautifully shot derp photos, because you cannot go to a con without them. Look out for them on Facebook ;)

For the Sunday I wore my SeeU costume, after finally managing to get the tangles out of the wig (although it's back in that state again... damn wind!).
I didn't stay in it for too long though, because I was cold and a little uncomfortable. So I changed into Alice's shirt and skirt before the closing ceremony, and for the after party.

The highlight of the weekend had to be watching Mel and Calum's performance in the skit competition. I'd watched them practicing a couple days earlier, but it was even more amazing on the day! Of course, they won. Ahh, so proud <3

Over the weekend they also myself and Kai to join their cosplay group, which we agreed to, of course and I managed to score myself some sexy LoZ figures and some art for my friend. Money well spent! (Y)

...Oh and we somehow ended up watching a burlesque show at the after party, we so weren't prepared for that!

I finally got around to updating the site again, hurray!
I got pretty lazy with it, so had quite a few things to add and update. 
Here's a quick list of updates so you can go and check them out.

- Site Updates

I finally got around to updating the site again, hurray!
I got pretty lazy with it, so had quite a few things to add and update. 
Here's a quick list of updates so you can go and check them out.

- Photoshoot added to Alice
- Costumes updated: SeeU & Alice
- Shop cleared.
- Events updated.

There are lots of lovely photos of Alice for you to go and check out, and even a progress picture of the scythe, which I'm slowly working on.
Hopefully there should be more coming from NemaCon too, so keep an eye out for those.

The events list and information for Alice and SeeU have also been updated and SeeU has now been marked as retired. I'm tempted to re-make it in the future, but who knows.

I've managed to shift all my costumes with the help of friends, so my shop section has been cleared for the time being.
I may open up commissions for small items and tunics over the summer, but this depends on my free time.

Finally, I've also updated the event list as I've found myself planning quite far ahead with conventions as well as cosplays and groups! I've added some new events as well as moving recent ones to 'past events'.

At some point I'll be re-arranging the layout of the events page so that I can put more details about my cosplay and group plans, as I'll be in quite a few large ones over the next 12 months, but more about those closer to the time.

Newly added events are: 
- SunnyCon 2013
- NemaCon 2013
- May Expo 2013

I've also gotten rid of my original home page and that godawful list of updates.
From now on my blog will be acting as the home page, and I'll inform you of site updates via this to hopefully make things a little clearer and so that I'll actually start using the blog.
