My costumes

Now that I've finished my second costume, I figured I'd make a post showing my more recent creative adventures!

First: Suki

The armor and headpiece are made primarily from craft foam. Fun stuff to work with! :D This costume won best construction at Sac-Con winter 2009

Second costume: Princess Yue (just debuted this past weekend)

My friend Kim is cosplaying Suki here (The same character I previously costumed, but in fire nation disguise) while I am Yue :D

The fur is fake. The designs on the gloves, shoes, and dress were all beaded by hand. the hair bobbles are ceramic. You can't really see them here, but I even made mocasins to go with it. The beautiful fish plushie was made by my wonderfully talented sister! To get your very own, see her other creations, or order your own custom plushie, visit her website at!

Figure drawing--first semester

I kept forgetting to post my figure drawings so, this is going to be a huge, steamy dump. Put on your goolashes.
(and do you think you could help me pick out which of these pieces to take with me to national portfollio day? My CSSSA drawings are options too, but I don't really like them anymore. I'm just not sure of what to bring with me)

india ink

got into some lisa-franky stuff at the end there

pointalism and cross-hatching. Outside mid-term

both from the first day

I think this one's my favorite

She was like a polar bear, laying in the sun! My favorite model :)

yes, no, maybe so? I'm thinking no.

This was how I felt in figure drawing class

She looked just like my fifth grade teacher!

My teacher said this was my best of the semester. I don't think I agree

He had some dirty feet!

Your advice on what to bring would be greatly appreciated!
