New Blog

I have decided, after a lot of deliberation, to start a new blog for my new projects.

With all the changes that have been happening in my life in the past year I figured a fresh start would be best.

Here is the new site if you want to come and join me:

Hope you are all well!
Keep on Creating

Photography Business

Hey everybody,

So I haven't been around (as two little ones tend to keep be pretty busy) but I'm trying to set up a home business... Yup I'm another photography mom! The difference is I have a fascination with different things as well, including Cosplay Photography and Staged Photography, as well as costume creation. So hopefully that will have some more of my art and costuming on it as well.

What this means... well in time I will have a site up. At that time this blog may change it's name, or no longer be running (which I will then link to the new one :) ) also it'll mean that soon I will be getting a lovely watermark for all my images. WOOT!

Until then I'll keep you all posted, but here's an image I took at a recent maternity shoot.

So soon I should be on again, until then keep creating.

So life's been a little nuts!

It's been a year since I've last posted and there are a lot of good reasons... a job, a new life, a move and insanity LOL.

We have welcomed a new baby into our family on August 29th. Her name is Ivy and my oldest (now 2 and a half) is a big sister.

Photo done by my awesome friend Joy :)
So I've put a lot of my crafts, art and work on hold... but that will all be changing in the new year. We are getting into full swing on costume creation for Fan Expo in August. I have 4 costumes plus my own to make... 3 for friends and my husband... I may have others added to the list.

In the year of searching for what I want to do in my life my husband has suggested me taking a fashion course. So we are going on Saturday to look at the facilities for the Fashion Design course at Fanshaw College.

Being we have recently moved I am now a lot closer to London Ontario so going there is no biggy on the traveling.

So welcome back if you just came back due to this post.
And I hope that the past year has been awesomely amazing for all of you.

I am hoping that this is a start of something amazing, and that I'll actually keep posting.
Your comments and stories would be awesome motivation for me to continue, being I've realized I need a community to keep me positive.

Thanks for being Awesome!

Geeking Out with Anticipation...

So Halloween is over and I totally flaked out and didn't do much.

Me, Monkey and My husband!
 We went out and dressed up (kinda) and even took a monkey to her first trick or treating. But other than that we didn't do too much.
Violet and Daddy Trick or Treating at the Mall.
 We also had a lovely dinner out on Monday (Oct 29th) for our 2 year anniversary. Violet accidentally (and Daddy didn't notice) wore home a daycare dress and refused to take it off so we let her wear it out. Some things are just not worth fighting.... and it wasn't like she wasn't looking adorable!

So now that we are done the extravaganza of Halloween... and I'm still dreading the shopping involved with Christmas... I've decided to start preparing for the Awesomeness that is Fan Expo next year. (Yes I know it's in August but you have to start early if you are making costumes.... and it's fun... so pffftttt :P  )

I have decided so far to make 2 Costumes... possibly 3. We have Thursday evening (which I may not dress up for), Friday all day, Saturday all day, and possibly Sunday.

For Friday or Saturday (we haven't solidified which day we are planning on the group costume) my friends and I are planning on being Evil Disney Princesses. We are going to loosely (being I am altering mine quite a bit) on the images by Jeff Thomas. I am planning on being Evil Snow White.... but instead of having Rabid Dwarves as seen below....

I am planning on making shrunken Dwarf heads to hang on my belt... I know, twisted right? (I will post my progress on those once they get started) I'm also planning on gothing the outfit a little more. I'll post sketches once I figure out exactly what and how I want it too look... I'm still having the debate whether to wear a corset or just a fitted shirt... Decisions, Decisions!

I have been planning on two other outfits... My opinion on Cosplay is if you wear a fancy and maybe uncomfortable costume one day you need the next days to be more comfortable.

One option is Kotoko... I have semi dressed like her in a past halloween but I plan on doing more exact a job this time. If I wear this it will probably be on the Sunday being it would be comfortable to drive home in it...
Kotoko from Chobits
The other option, which will probably be a definite go for on the Saturday or Friday we aren't doing the Princesses is Tira from Soul Calibur 5...

I'm hoping to figure out how to make the weapon, I think a hula hoop but I'm not totally sure... may have to google that. (Unless anyone else has some ideas they can send me) She's a little skimpier than I usually go but I figure I can make it slightly (as in not using a string across the nipples) more appropriate. But she's my favorite character for Soul Calibur and this would be the second incarnation of her I'll be trying, last time was good but hopefully this time will be AWESOME.

Now I need to get my pencil and sketch pad out and start figuring out the costumes so that I can buy material and build the things I need (and do them better than the half a$$ I usually manage for Halloween with running out of time).

I would love to here if you have other suggestions, or what you may be being... or if you are coming to Fan Expo if you would like to join us in a mass Evil Disney Princess Cosplay let me know (ATM we have Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Wendy).

Until Next Time
Keep Creating!

Getting ready for Halloween...

So Halloween is upon us and I've been a total slacker this year... to the point of actually buying my daughter a pre-made costume instead of making one (Bad Mom!). Next year hopefully my motivation will be higher but until then slacker mom for the win. I have at least bought 3 pumpkins for my door, racked up leaves and got some caution tape to decorate with. Hopefully my house will be more hallo-weeny by next week.

Until then, and until I get motivated to do any of my pictures or art work I have planned... watch a cute show:

I hope you like it, I think it's fun (If it doesn't work let me know and I'll try and re-embed it.

Until Next Time.

Getting Setup

Oky, So I have my new computer all set up. CHECK
I have my drafting table CHECK

Now I'm just in need to two critical things to get going.... One is some way to organize all my stuff (I'm thinking drawers or bins or something) and the other is TIME.

Time is the main issue.... When I have a few moments I have the bad thing of playing Guild Wars 2 (I'm only LVL 10, but I'll get there) or watching shows at Geek and Sundry.

My favorite show's Table Top and I love getting caught up on it (But as a mom I am now a month behind... BAD MOM!)

I have to say I love Table Top so much that a few friends and I have bought some (most) of the games and keep trying the newest ones we watch.

Small world is one that after watching I ran out and bought... we've played it a few times and have had a blast each time!!

Oky, I admit, part of my love for table top is the fact that Wil Wheaton is part of it and I find him awesome! But other than that it has definitely resulted in me not putting aside my time to do art or get started on anything else... I think it's time well wasted.

Well, that's my little update.
Still planning on posting picks from Fan Expo and other monkey related stuff.

Until Next Time.

The new years starts in September.

Oky, so it seems that I am going to be mostly a monthly blogger. Although I would like to post more (and maybe I'll be able to get on more of a spurt soon) I seem to resign to posting at least once a month.

That being said the past month has been pretty good.

I am a big believer in the year starting in September. Maybe it's because with school that was how you counted the year (based on start and finish) but it really does seem to be true. I tend to start my biggest projects in September, it's like a fresh start and everything's a go!

The end of August went out with a Bang.... With the accumulation of my excitement for Fan Expo we had a total BLAST!!!

Here's a pic of me (I'm Wolvey) and the lovely ladies at the Expo.

I'm hoping to have a bigger post done with more pictures soon being I have quite a few on my camera.

Other new thing... I'm starting to work out. I'm a total slacker at times (I'm terrible at homework) but all in all I'm doing fairly well. Hopefully by next year I'll have the muscle tone to pull off more comic looks a bit sharper. Heck, I already have a list of things I want to build for next year (including some friends costumes).

I have actually started setting up my art room... WOOT!! So far I have my new computer (which I have to actually turn on sometime) and a few shelves. Still need some ideas for my insanity of art supplies, but that will come in time.

So until next time... which hopefully will consist of a bunch of pics....
Keep Creating!
