Pardon the bare page while I get situated ^-^ I'm really not on here often enough to to not find it confusing.

If you recognize the penname, then y'all know my main squeeze is writing. There are currently only two subjects that I'll write fanfiction about: Final Fantasy XIII and Kuroshitsuji. My love for them is UNCONDITIONAL (important because sometimes I feel Lightning or Ciel troll me and I relentlessly belittle them and call them the ugliest of names).

If I'm not at a con, hyped on chocolate, or with close friends, I'm painfully shy. It's a love/hate relationship that I'm working on. But that has no bearing on my cyber activites, so feel free to drop me a line! I enjoy making new friends.

Obviously, I like cosplaying; the concept of being someone else, especially someone you admire or connect with or even wish you were a little like really fascinates me. It's a nice escape.
I'm pretty much a newborn when it comes to cosplaying, but after seeing so many amazing pictures, I was just like, 'I HAVE to do this...the geeky nerd in me commands this'.  So I chose Vanille because I love FF XIII...and I thought she'd be perfect for a first-timer because she doesn't wear a lot, meaning she'd be relatively easy.  Are you already laughing at me?  It's ok if you are.  I laughed too before the tears of frustration came pouring out.  I didn't use patterns and the only experience I had with a sewing machine was the Easter pillow I made when I was eleven.  With the beads, I didn't mind the fact that I had to re-do them over and over again or that the nylon thread sometimes slipped between my fingers (ok, maybe I had a few fits when that happened)--what had me baffled was how I was going to connect them all and be able to fit them over my head and shoulders.  See, I'm a perfectionist and I couldn't spot any clasps on Vanille's actual outfit, so I didn't want to use any (of course, I eventually gave in).  

I was able to debut my cosplay for a day at gathering-of-a-con in Anchorage.  Running around like a dork and climbing on things I probably shouldn't have, no beads decided to embrace the floor and my bra only showed on one side xD  But I came to the realization that Vanille would never survive in Alaska...  She needs to skin a few more bears for that to happen.

Aki-con was amazing and even though I was the only XIII cosplayer (though I did see a XIII-2 Serah a couple times), I wasn't too heartbroken and I got to hang out with some awesome people.  

I'm already working on Ciel for Sakura and Serah, Maka and Alice will follow short after.
