Journal Entry: Fri Oct 14, 2011, 9:55 PM
Hey guys, welcome to my new DA, I appreciate you taking the time to add :h2g-tesscosplay: and my new private accounts and hope you enjoy what will hopefully be the progression of our individual cosplay careers.
So much has been achieved already, coming from such a limited introduction into the world of Cosplay as Tasmania was able to provide us with I am still in quite a large amount of disbelief that the two of us have now achieved Australia's highest cosplay achievement in the World Cosplay Summit.
The Brother Award was always the highest possible achievement I dared to dream of one day recieving in my cosplay career, but it was always something I believed would be out of my reach. When Tess and I originally won the title of Team Australia, we knew what we wanted to aim for, but we never assumed for a minute that we would really stand a chance, competing against so many phenomenal European and Asian countries who have many more resources than what we have in Australia. As our competition was selected from each country and we saw how remarkably talented every team was turning out I think it really helped inspire us to be all we can be. I know I can safely say that Tess and I achieved so much pride and happiness in our Vampire Hunter D set not only in what we won but how we achieved our goal.
Since returning to Australia thinks have been fairly quiet for me, having burned through all my money embarking on this adventure it will take me a while to recover financially, so I ask you for your patience until this time. I will be doing a few smaller cosplays over the next 12 months, possibilities including:
Armageddon: Chibi Moon
Consensual: Special Guest and Judge
Sat: Syo Kurusu, Uta No Prince Sama
Gold Coast Supanova:
Sat: Poison Ivy
Sun: Badgirl, No More Heroes
Sat: Step-sister Anastasia from Cinderella
Sun: Cersei Lannister, Game of Thrones
Fri: Special Collection Presentation, Fruits Fashion Comp
(all dresses worn by models for sale)
Sun: Stocking, P&S
Sun: Vivaldi, Alice in The Country of Hearts
Love Ward Vocaloid group, Pretty Cure, Takarazuka's Rose Of Versailles, X-Men.
Obviously at this time I haven't decided on all of the cosplays for next year, but I will hopefully be attending all the conventions listed above. If I am attending a convention and you would like me included in your group feel free to PM me to ask!
And just because it can't be my journal without a little corny, I leave you with these lyrics from katy Perry'r Fireworks which summerises how I am feeling after WCS this year:
"You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow
Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know..."
