Costume, Uploads, and Wedding

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 7, 2012, 11:32 AM


I haven't posted anything in ages, and it's about time that I changed that. Here's a brief bit on what I've been up to lately, and I apologize for my lack of presence.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Costume
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As I haven't even posted since 2010, I haven't mentioned last year's costume for Dragon*Con. I've never worn a costume at that convention before, but a friend suggested the idea of going to the con as "huge fans" (pun fully intended), and Robert, our roommate, and I could never shake the idea. So we set about making our own fan costumes. Here are a couple of photos of the results.

Uploads
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On one hand, I really like when Zazzle and CafePress add new types of products. It provides more opportunities to add images to interesting things and more options for customers. On the other hand, it can be a real pain trying to keep up with the number of items added sometimes, and really cuts into time for creating new designs. :P

I do have a couple of things in progress, and a few ideas for more. Hopefully I'll be able to get a couple up soon (ideally before the next Dragon*Con).

For other bits of possible interest, I now have a website of my own and a Facebook page for my art. The website is only a collection of links at the moment, but for the time being it's a nice way to get all of those in one place. :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wedding
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Robert and I have been together for a while, and this year we decided to finally turn our unofficial anniversary into an official one. It was small, but a lot of fun, and the best man brought monocles to complete our outfits. :)
