I wanted to show you this! The evolution of my Amaterasu cosplay.
2009, 2010 and 2014. Same base costume, small little improvements from makeup to wig styling to general presentation.

Okami is something in my life that really makes my heart swell. Its the game I put on when everything is awful and I don’t want to face the world. It brings me such simple joy  I keep coming back to this cosplay as it’s pretty much the physical representation of my deep love for this game….and I just can’t get it right XD
The lesson is that if you love something enough you will never be happy with a tribute you make for it, no matter what everyone else says! And that is perfectly okay  As you grow as a artist and a person you can always revisit it with new skills! It’s something that should never have an expiry date
I’ll post more of my new costume soon!

Costume made by me! With the help of some amazing artists on tumblr (http://makimonstrous.tumblr.com/ and http://polishtamales.tumblr.com/) I got ideas for a design and then I created this costume!
Tribute to my fav Planeswalker <3

We were trying to imitate the original Lorwyn card art by the talented Aleksi Briclot, and in the last picture you can see me with my Jace collection. I might do an update entry of my Planeswalker collection soon!

Lame story time. I’ve always been a bit on an introvert and quite a nervous person. I really don’t like large crowds which sometimes makes conventions hard for me and I prefer to sit quietly on my own. I’ve always had and loved books every since I can remember. Big epic fantasy sagas. I’ve read them all. LotR remains 1st in my heart. I really can’t put into words what this story means to me… it helped me through difficult times in my teens. I’m so glad I finally got a chance to make a cosplay from it and combine 2 things that have helped me be a lot more confident in myself. 
Thank you once again for dealing with my lameness XD

Dr Pamela “Poison Ivy” Isley Progress! I am really digging this as it lets me combine my cosplay and my science together (I work in a research lab FYI)
Please excuse my very ill make-up-less face ><
I might or might not “green up” Its ridiculously hot in Scotland atm….I might melt.  Also I am judging the cosplay competition so I’d rather be comfy :)
