Hey there! So I know I've been pretty absent recently. Hell, this is my first journal since June. But I've got a pretty good reason for it.
I've officially started nursing school. And although I knew it would be time consuming, I still managed to underestimate it. Haha. Frankly, I shouldn't be using this time to write a journal, but I felt the need to explain a bit, and apologize a little. Mainly to the people I promised back in mid June that I would respond to their notes. But I just haven't had the time to research and write up my responses. So for that, I am sorry.
Anyway, cosplay progress, although not halted, is going to be moving extremely slowly for a while. I have not dropped my clicker from The Last of Us, but progress is slow going. My plan is to do a shoot with it at the beginning of next month with
. I should be able to get everything together by then. Because of my class schedule, I don't have any for certain convention plans in the near future, but I will post here if that changes. It is also very possible I may be commissioning my dear friend
to help me with an upcoming non-horror (well, not technically. It still wigs me out though) cosplay idea, while I have little time to churn out new things on my own. But I'm going to keep that one secret for a while.
In the meantime, even though it may be crazy, I do have one project I am prepping for now, and will be working on throughout October. The Lost Colony, which is a Tony Award winning outdoor play they've been doing out here for decades, is starting a haunted trail this year. And I am completely honored to be doing the makeup for this project. Like seriously, crazy excited and wicked nervous. I may be crazy for trying to do this while making my way through nursing school, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity when I heard about it. Hopefully I'll learn lots, and not make a fool of myself in the meantime. Haha. I will probably be posting a few shots of my character makeup ideas and such as the weeks go by, assuming I have any time in my life left over.
I hope everyone's doing well! Happy crafting.
