So like... I'm sorry I haven't been very active on dA in 2013 HAHA! Considering I took a gap year from my education for personal reasons. I lost interested in dA when many other social media popped up however, I'M BACK AGAIN! Partly because some very nice person gave me a free premium membership for 12 months HOLY MOLY!!! Now I have to be more active, I don't want to waste this opportunity to make my dA pretty~
Thank you so much
Anyways, thought I'd update you all.
In terms of cosplay, I pretty much spent 2013 doing as much of my cosplans as possible so that I could sew faster for when I start university //shot Photoshoot wise though, I've been very lazy. To be honest, I enjoy the making part of costumes so I am always making things *no time to shoot*
I've been very active on my facebook page ( www.facebook.com/HAPPYHAHACOSP…
) so if you'd like more recent updates from me, please head over there
Another news is that I've set up a store to sell some prints!!! WOOOO! I was reluctant at first but after some encouragement, it happened! The sales made from my HAPPYHAHA store ( happyhaha.storenvy.com
) will go towards helping me make more fabulous cosplays and travelling! I'm really happy about this because my sister (main photographer) and I are getting something back from such a hobby we put too much effort and sweat into. We'd definitely would like to continue to improve. And my sister definitely deserve it for doing such a great work considering her age and how much of a b*tch of a sister I am gahhaah
In 2013, I was able to make it to a few conventions including AICon (Hobart), SMASH (Sydney), MAICon(Launceston) and Brisbane Supanova. I'm so happy I was able to make it to some interstate conventions because it allowed me to meet so many good faces, befriended so many lovelies and drooled at idols I have admired for a very long time. This year, I plan to go to Brisnova, SMASH (Sydney) and *drumrollllllll* Anime Festival Asia - Singapore
in December. HUHUEHEUEHUEHUEEE
Lastly, I have been accepted into University of Queensland to do their Dentistry course! Yes, I want to become a dentist and that's a huge reason why I took a gap year in 2013. I'm so happy my huge life goal has been achieved and that a new chapter of my life has began! This will mean that I will be moving interstate soon and in terms of cosplay activity, it will drastically drop but hey, I wont completely stop it (except during exams). Cosplay has become such a huge part of my life! Now I will definitely understand the hardships most of you cosplayers experience xD I just need to learn how to decrease my cosplan and choose my characters wisely.
Well I think that's everything. 2013 has been a fantastic year for me, experiencing myriad of new things I never got the chance to do while I was being a study freak. It has made me realise there are more things in life than studying 24/7 that's for sure! I hope that 2014 will be just as good and wish you ALLL a fab 2014 too
Over and out
