I spent a proud Friday morning at the GA Convention Center for the Delta Air Lines Flight Attendant Graduation of my class! We got our diplomas and wings, and shared lots of laughter and tears and hugs. I can not believe the 25 of us in C-3 have survived the last 7 weeks! I've learned so much and met new friends and am beginning a career in Fortune Magazine's Most Admired Airline in the world.

On Wednesday I fly to New York City for base orientation and my first flight of the month! When I was last in NYC for New York Comic Con, I mentioned to a few friends how much I would love to be in the city more often, and lo and behold, now I have a job that requires me to be in NYC for half of each month. I am excited to see my friends and eat delicious food and shop in little boutiques, and do a whole lot of walking.
I haven't let down my hair (literally) in a month and a half, both my knees are bruised up from hands on drills all week long, and I am dying for some social interaction with my friends, but it's all been worth it and from here on the world is going to be a much smaller place for me. I can't wait to visit my family, and many buds around the States and other countries.

For those who've asked me if I will find time to continuing cosplaying and go to cons - I will of course keep doing both. Delta is a very flexible company and I will do my best to work with my flight schedule and my cosplay/con related schedule. Hopefully with planning and time management, I can handle the multiple responsibilities.

Speaking of cosplay and costume making - I just signed a book contract for an artbook of my work with New Babel Books! During those long layovers in strange cities I plan to do a lot of writing for it. Here is the preliminary announcement, more info coming soon.

I am also working on costumes for Megacon. Pending the arrival of my ordered fabrics, I hopefully will have two brand new comic book costumes to debut at Megacon. I'll say this much - one is Marvel, one is DC ^_-.

Lastly, check out for a sizable update! New costume gallery addition, new blog post, and preview of a fashion shoot. Hope everyone is having a great and relaxing Sunday morning :)

Congrates on your new job. I hated all the new info I had to learn in such a short time for my job, but after awhile it will all make sense. Can't wait to see new stuff when you have the time.

Welcome to the airline industry, I am a mechanic for US Airways and know all about the fun perk of working for an airline- you can go almost anywhere you want for free or little cost, perfect for cons or vacations. I wouldn't have been able to marry a woman from the Philippines if I actually had to pay the real airfare every time I go out there! Delta has connections all over, including to Japan, other parts of Asia, Africa, Europe... I wish my airline went to Asia, though they are trying to negotiate with Delta to make that happen, but the USA government denied it, it's being appealed now.

Don't forget about Brazil with Delta, am going in 4 weeks to Rio myself- S. America has a lot of great people, I've met a lot of them here on dA so I can't wait to go! Once again, welcome to the club!
