I'm back home from hiding out in a mountain cabin for a few days... had a lovely relaxing yet pretty productive Christmas.  I've been going non-stop this year so it was nice to be on a forced break, eat good food, be with loved ones, give and receive nice presents... and finish a costume!

Those who've been following me for a while know how much I love crafting - sewing, patterning, beading, sculpting, casting, painting... costume making allows me to constantly be creative and even after all these years and all these costumes, what I do for fun and relaxation is costume crafting. If I didn't have a business to run or daily responsibilities, that is all I'd be doing.

I am very happy to have taken some time in December to do just that, and I'll have a new costume to debut at Ikkicon this weekend, in Austin. With 3 - 4 being worked on right now for later con debuts.

Ikkicon kicks off the new year like it has for me for the past three years! Austin is a fun city to celebrate New Year's Eve in, with 6th street just a couple of blocks from the hotel. And the flat landscape ensures that I'll get a great view of fireworks again. I'll be helping out with the costume contest again, running a couple of cosplay panels and my cosplay products will be available at my booth right outside the dealer hall.
After Ikkicon I'll be making Guest appearances in Destin, FL, Alburqueque, New Mexico, and San Jose, Costa Rica in January. It's a jam-packed month!

I'm still uploading images to my  WorldCosplay account, hope to see many other cosplayers there!

I also updated my website with Rarity and My Little Pony photos :)

I'm so glad you got to slow down a bit, take a breather and enjoy time with family. That's what Christmas season is all about. ^_^ And also, your New Year sounds like it's going to be sooo much fun! I hope you do have a good time at Ikkicon and may you have a wonderful New Year! :D
