You can see my newest deviation here:

And you can see my website update here:

I can't believe it's already been one week since T-Mode - it feels like it's been a month!  I had such a great time and saw so many friends and made some very good new ones and I'm still bummed out that it couldn't last longer.  Thank you so much to everyone who came to my panels and to the Variety Show, and to the con itself!  It was honestly the best convention I've had all year and probably one of the best conventions ever.  If you didn't go this year, you sorely missed out, and I hope you will join us next year in Rockville, MD!

I have so many great stories from this con: getting mobbed by a high school class on a field trip from Indiana in my Aurora costume, getting pictures with two drunken wedding attendees (and getting my crown snatched off my head by one of them!), and getting a picture in Jem with a boy having his Bar Mitzvah that Friday and his father.  Classic times and the memories are still making me smile.

Since I took last week off to prepare for a wedding (complete with surprise geese!!), I am now hunkering down and getting into super cosplay mode for my newest costumes for Anime Mid-Atlantic in June: Miss Scarlet from the movie "Clue" and a Red Queen costume from "Alice in Wonderland."  My Red Queen costume is based on a design from a very talented artist on DeviantArt, and I am planning to cover it in a bajillion rhinestones, so I will be spending the next month of my life heat-fixing red rhinestones to this dress (about 16,000 or more!).

As always, I look forward to seeing many of you at Anime Mid-Atlantic and I hope you enjoy my work!  I did hear that many of you liked seeing my progress pictures on my Facebook Page, so if you would like to follow along on my rhinestoning adventures, feel free to follow along!!

I can't wait to see your new projects! Good luck with the rhinestones, they sound evil...

Not evil, just tedious - hours and hours of sparkly tediousness.

Good to hear you've been rocking out the awesome ma'am! I used to hit AMA all the time... But it was a REAL disapointment in 06. Now its just that I need to save up for Ota ><
Anyway please keep wowing the crowd with your amazing work :D
