That which will soon come to pass

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 8, 2014, 6:03 AM


It's already October.

It seems ridiculous honestly. 
At the end of this month last year I was off in Germany, Sweden and London - and soon after I was working on Supernatural, although it seems all of it had just happened yesterday.

It frightens me. I look back not at my accomplishments, but as per usual, the time wasted, and not truly lived. I take a second to stop and remember that that is a fool's game, and this year was moderately exceptional.

Sewing precedes, but cosplay comes to a close - one of the larger decisions I made this year. 
I will be at Stan Lee's Comicaze, celebrating my last con for what I assume is for some time, with dear friends, and going to Disneyland as a Disney villain.
Line Up is as follows:
Oct 31 - Friday - Cruella De Vil
Nov 1 - Saturday - Parasite Bag Kili
Nov 2 - Hawkeye, My Life as a Weapon Uniform


I hope those who I do not see up here will be down there! Those of you on the West Coast that is.


As for finishing up this year, I have a couple sewing projects, and many music projects, leading up the my first album, The Sonnets. I'll be posting  more on that a little closer to 2015. As per usual, this account will remain very active with costumes, just not necessarily cosplay.

To all the Canadians reading this, Happy Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for every one of you.

Cheers,
Lux.

Daily .. Deviation?

Me? What?

Honestly, I have always dreamed of getting one. I know that seems like a fairly ridiculous thing, but.... this is an honor. It means my work (with that of Kezia) has been recognized.
And That? That is extremely humbling and I could not be more grateful. 
Even the short sentence for the award recognized my set.
That to me means more than any other reason could have possibly. I take great pride in my set and production design work - the words touched a very deep place in my heart.


Looking back at those photos from almost 2 years ago was certainly a throw-back. 
But it makes me realize a big reason of why I cosplayed and looked forward to it.
And that is Kezia. 

Kezia is more than the person who takes photos of me in costume. She is my dear friend, and an artist of true perfection. 
I know she looks back on old photos and cringes knowing her skills now far succeed her original, but she could take shitty iphone photos of me and I would still smile at them. Because with each photo I look back on, I remember a great story behind it - a great time with an exceptional friend.  

Kezia is an inspiration, and is someone I truly cherish in my life.

Thank you to everyone who has commented on and/or fave'd the picture, and for that matter, any photo in my gallery. A great thank you also goes out to   Kida-neechan for the suggestion and Feature  by pullingcandy who made the DD come to be!

Until soon,
Lux

The End of an Era

Sun Jul 6, 2014, 8:20 PM
It has come to my attention that cosplay is no longer fun. It used to be - but as I believed the most fun part of cosplay was the people of whom were brought into my life because of it, this is no longer the case. 
I've met a lot of great people because of this extraordinary hobby. But the continuing idea of that has be scorned by so many of the opposite - using cosplay as the only thing they have in their lives to boost their ill-mannered egotistical demeanour. It hurts. As people who I once saw as friends now consider cosplay fame and online reputation more important than friendship, I understand now that life is too short. There are not enough minutes to waste on people who are obviously not worth it.

Cosplay is not my life. I enjoyed it. It brought great pleasure and moments into my life. And now that it no longer does, it's time to let it go.

I may or may not cosplay here or there, but I will CERTAINLY continue to make costumes. But these will be more original historical pieces or something of the sort.

I'm very sorry if I had plans to cosplay something with any of you. I can no longer hold true to that word. Please understand that I had no original intention of it increasing to this degree. 

My last cosplays at this time are:
Mystique - Xmen FC
Charles Xavier - Xmen FC
Smaug - Original Design - The Hobbit
Kili - The Hobbit
A jedi of some sort - might be original design - might be Obi-Wan. Tough call. 

Everything else, (except for cosplays I've previous specified), I'll be selling. 

I'll be attending Stan Lee's Comikaze in LA in October, and I will be cosplaying there. Not sure what yet, but I will be.
If I know you and you're local, feel free to shoot me a message so you can come over and pick fabric you might want. I have a lot to get rid of. 

This account will remain active, as again, I will still continue to make costumes, and take the occasional commission.
However my heart and soul will move on to music. Sadly, it looks like my cosplay era is coming quickly to an end. 

Ciao for now-
Lux
