I usually neglect my journal, but I promised myself I wouldn't...so here we go, I'm writing a new entry within a two month time frame!
I still have various costumes for sale from the list I had posted on the Nominoichi forum. Some have sold, but I still have quite a few remaining, as well, I may have more to add to that list.
Now that I have tested out my swappable fuku's for Sailor Moon costuming, it means I can start slowly selling off some of my original Sailor scout fuku's. As I slowly get the new scout costumes underway I will be posting more of my original fuku's for sale. This will be mainly basic fuku's (Sailors Mars, Venus, Mercury etc.)
The only eternal's I have for sale are eternal Jupiter (size XSmall) and eternal Neptune (size medium.)
If you are interested in buying a costume from me please send me a note on here, comment below or if you are not a registered member you can email my cosplay account at: Ammiecosplay@hotmail.com
I am also going to be writing up and providing photos for a massive Sailor Moon fuku tutorial. I figure it's about time as I am asked about my Sailor Moon costumes constantly. I do sell the pattern I use to make my own Sailor Moon costumes and this tutorial will be the instructions on how to put it together.
In news of conventions and plans for this summer, I was hoping to go to ConBravo for at least a day, but this heavily depends on my friends and if they are able to go. I have never been to ConBravo and this is its fifth year running. I have a few friends on staff for that con, and I have really wanted to check it out since the beginning, but still have not T_T.
The next con I will be attending is at the beginning of August (1-3) in Kitchener called Emiko's Mini Convention. I am actually their cosplay guest of honor and I will be assisting in judging the masquerade as well as have my own table where I will be selling some of my older costumes, figures and prints of my costumes. If you can make it out to Emiko's Mini Con in Kitchener please drop by and say hi!
Lastly, the final con of the summer is going to be Fanexpo...yes, I will be going back to that con after a 2 year absence. Jay has mentioned he wants to meet Adam West so we will be going for 1 day only. Fanexpo has become far too expensive for costumers to attend due to the ticket cost, hotel and parking. The weekend alone would cost me nearly a thousand dollars to go and I can't justify that for a convention that is over crowded. I'm still not sure of what day we will be going, but it's most likely going to be the Saturday.
I am hoping to attend another con in late September called Jemcon. It's the first time Jemcon will be in Canada and I am a huge Jem and the Holograms fan! I am hoping to go for at least a day with my best friend, Dee, who is also a Jem fanatic. I have a huge selection of Jem costumes to choose from such as Jem (Classic, Like a Dream, Star Bright, Broadway Magic, and Glitter N' Gold) or Carmen "Raya" Alonzo and Sheila "Jetta" Burns.
I have been slowly working on getting a lot of my costumes photographed over the summer so please check back often. I have quite a few costumes that still need to be photographed and I am working to get most of them done this year.
My next journal probably won't be until the autumn or late summer with my plans for later this year.
I also plan on opening up a Storenvy shop to list the costumes I am selling as well as some figures and plushies. The shop name is Ammie's Shop.
