...but you just can't keep up with the times.

AS of my last post in May, I have stopped using Livejournal, and after today will no longer be updating or reading my friends list updates. Nine out of ten times LJ crashes when I try to update or post, and it's a dinosaur that's just become too unreliable. Plus many of my friends have also stopped using LJ, so why update if only one or two people respond?

You can find me on facebook at my cosplay page here: http://www.facebook.com/CosplayKitten. I also have a public twitter I keep updated here: http://twitter.com/CosplayKitten.

I'm still keeping my LJ, since there are so many memories here, but this is my last transmission!

Heading to Fanime tomorrow! Whoo! :D

I’ve been scaling back costumes due to being busy with work and a secret project. So I won’t be bringing anything new to the con, and will just be wearing a few old things. Gonna take it easy and just enjoy time with friends, especially the ones who are coming up from Florida and staying with us! ^_^

Here’s my costume lineup/schedule:

Raya Songweaver for CJ’s Heaven System group
Pirotess for our Record of Lodoss group

Celes Cheré for our Final Fantasy VI group

Random Meido-chan

And that’s it. Hope to see some of you lovely folks there! ♥

Sac Anime starts tomorrow! ^_^ This is going to be a simple, easy con for me as I don't have any elaborate costume plans. I'm wearing my original design Oriental Elf costume on Friday, and then on Saturday CJ and I are wearing Magus and Schala from Chrono Trigger. We'll be judging the Masquerade too and I'm so excited to see all the costumes! ♥

I hope to see a few of you there! ^_^

I'm starting the new year off with creative cosplay stuff! ^_^

There's a new costume up on my website - my Spartan Woman costume inspired by the movie 300. I originally made it for a huge 300 gathering at Dragon Con 2007, and decided to get a nice shoot done before retiring it. Here are a few of my favorite pictures:

You can see the rest of them here.

I've made a tentative list of conventions I plan to attend in 2011 (http://www.cosplaykitten.com/schedule.html), and I've finally set my mind on the main costumes I'd like to make as well!

I'm very excited to do some of these; some I've been wanting to do for years, a few are ones I have planned with others, and one is even my dream costume. ^_^ I also have a few more I am planning that aren't on this list, either because they're part of groups with friends and nothing's set in stone yet, because they're not a super high priority and I'll squeeze them in as time allows, or because they're super secret! :D

Even more exciting though is knowing I have an amazing boyfriend and wonderful friends to do many of these costumes with. Here's to a happy and creative 2011! ♥

Holy crap it's next week! ~Happy dances~

I still have to finish up a few costumes and start packing, but I've finally got my costume schedule down...

The days may change around a bit (except for Nix), and I'll probably bring my pirate garb to wear Sunday too. Can't wait to see some of you there! ♥

I've added a gallery for one of my new costumes to Cosplay Kitten: Blackberry Pai from the webcomic Heaven System!

My wonderfully talented boyfriend CJ sozokureed is the creator of Heaven System, an online comic. When he asked me to model one of his characters for Fanime 2010, I happily agreed! He suggested I cosplay the sexy dominatrix Blackberry, because he feels I'm able to represent strong, powerful women while still being feminine and beautiful. ♥ While her personality isn't exactly similar to mine, I do love how the character looks, and had so much fun being a part of the Heaven System cast! Here are a few of my favorite pics:

You can see the rest here!

I've added a gallery for one of my many new costumes to my website: Pirotess from Record of Lodoss War!

I'm so happy to have finally finished this costume, and that I had the hunky sozokureed for my Ashram. ♥ Here are a few of my favorite pics:

You can see the rest here! Now to get pictures of the other dozen costumes lol...

Thursday: Getting to the con sometime in the early AM/noonish. Wearing the adorable maid outfit my awesome boyfriend got me for my birthday! ♥

Friday: FF XIII Shiva bike of hotness!!! Bet you can't guess which one will be me lol! After this changing into Raya from CJ's Heaven System comic to wear with his Reed.

Saturday: Wearing Pirotess from Record of Lodoss Wars, with CJ as Ashram. ♥

Sunday: Packing up and checking out, and hopefully heading out early enough to make it back home in time for fireworks! ^_^

Sadly I don't have time to put on Pirotess and take pictures, but here's a progress shot! I still need to finish the scabbard for her sword and make her waist belt (the resin for the buckle is curing as I type this lol), but other than that she's all done! :D

And speaking of her sword, did I mention I have the most awesome, wonderful boyfriend ever? ♥ CJ/ sozokureed made her sword for me! It looks SO awesome. ^__^

I'm heading down to AX early Thursday, and hope to see some of you there! :D
