So I've been away from this corner of the internet (tumblr, you are a cruel and demanding mistress.) but this is still the best place to log costume progress and to-do lists, so here I am.

I remastered Benkei for Anime Matsuri in March/April this year, and my skit (with Pas's Nozomi) took Best in Show. Pretty fucking incredible, seriously. They still haven't gotten us our prize money at this time, which is a bit shitty.

Anyway, after that I actually worked hard on Eveline Gurerra, The Corsair from Assassin's Creed: Revelations multiplayer. I have loved her design for years, and the costume pulled together in time for Denver Comic Con, and was then updated for the Colorado Rennaisance Festival in Larkspur.

In between all my Eveline love, I started on my competition piece for NDK and my friendship piece for PAX: Clow Reed (an original version to matck Mik's Yuuko) and Nix (from inFamous 2, to hang with Kat's Kuo)

Also, I may have watched 1.5 seasons of Game of Thrones and 3.25 sessons of Leverage while working on these things.
