Haven't written a journal in almost a year, so I'll give a quick update on current works in progress.

Sometime this month I will be posting pics from my latest photo shoot done with my favorite photographer. It will be of my steamgoth dress which I finished for a fashion show a month ago.

Coming up the first week of July, I will be cosplaying Hextech Janna from league of legends with my bf who will be Debonair Jayce. This is a LONG and extensive process because we are making the weapons glowy and his hammer will be functional.

Next, I am making Elsa inspired corset tops which will be limited edition and custom made. I will probably only make three EVER. Normally, I wouldn't do something like this, but a client fell through so I still have the fabric to make Elsa items.

Lastly, I am working on a very special project that I have been designing for awhile (BEFORE Frozen came out). It's going to include a very extensive corset which will be one of a kind. Not going to reveal anything yet, but it does have to do with snow.

Of course, these are the main projects. I will be working on a few steampunk corsets which will be available for purchase in my etsy shop later this year.

If you have requests/custom orders, let me know! I am always up for the challenge :).

*takes deep breath* Okay hi omg I can't believe I actually found your dA page (I even logged in just to post this comment since I actually haven't used this site for probably like a year now). First of all I'd like to say that you're an amazingly gifted artist and I admire your work so much, it's truly lovely and as an aspiring costume artist I look up to you so much. When I saw you on Steampunk'd I not just admired your work but your positive personality as well (you were my fav contestant btw) and I could really relate to a lot of what you said about being a geek and not really fitting in with the "normal" crowd. If we had gone to school together, I bet we would've gotten along super well. So if you're ever looking for another nerdy friend I'm just gonna throw myself out there :D Sorry for the super long rant, I just really wanted to say hi and tell you how much I appreciate you and your work. *quietly sneaks back into the shadows*

you're truly deserving of the praise :D I would like to know so much more about your costuming process. How did you start getting into making your own cosplay stuff, if you don't mind me asking?

I actually started making jewelry for a school project and then began making steampunk jewelry. Everything else I self taught myself how to do and just progressively got more elaborate with. By the way, you can always add me on facebook ( I post wip pics and my newest work ^-^

Hi, Just wanted to say that the outfits you did on GSN Steampunk'd were amazing, and now that I've seen your Gallery have to say that you are a truly gifted maker.
