Happy Summer, my friends!
Just going to get this off my chest right away and say sorry for my lack of communication skills as of late! I really do feel bad -- You all leave me SUCH awesome comments for which I am truly grateful for, but I've been really lacking on the response side of things. While I might take longer to reply, everything you say is always so important to me. I'm working on getting things sorted, but I'm just a bit slow! So don't be afraid to comment, I do read them and [eventually] reply! <3 <3
Thank you for your patience! I hope you've all been well!
Alright, now that I've gotten that out of my system I have a few announcements!
Future Plans - A Short film!
I admit, I can get a little over-zealous about things and tend to set large goals for myself. But it's good to have big dreams! Well, as I'm prepping a fresh portfolio for 2015 I've decided to make it interesting -- something very different from the normal portfolio. I'll be producing my own short film! Everything from the story, script, concept art, illustrations, props, costumes, and film editing will be done by me. WHOA, that's alot, right? I know. haha... But I want to showcase all that I'm passionate about in the art realm, all the skills I've been working on, and get my hands into a bit of everything. So over the summer/fall I'll be feverishly working to produce my short film. I've recently finished character designs, currently polishing up my story, and I am now beginning to draft patterns.
This also means I won't be able to produce new cosplays as quickly as I've done in the past. So what I will
be doing is pulling out older costumes to wear/photoshoot! While the costumes themselves may not be new, the photos to come will hopefully be a little fresher. ;')
Here's the fun part -- I've created a facebook page for you to follow along with my progress and story! As we start filming you may recognize a few of my friends who will be acting as my characters. Who knows~ *wink wink*
Panda Bashfully - A new shop!
I'm super proud to announce that one of my most precious, best friends, kaleso, has opened up a new online shop! She has an adorable array of cute items. Lots of fun hair pieces and charming keychains written with Japanese Kana and Kanji. Please stop by her shop -- www.etsy.com/shop/pandabashfully-- and take a peek or check out her facebook and show her some love! This is such an exciting thing for me, I've always dreamed of having a little shop to sell things and now she's given birth to one of the most charming shops I've seen. Can't wait to see Panda Bashfully blossom!
Please give her your support and spread the word, it would mean so much to me. <3
