Hey everyone! Long time no see since I last made a journal like this. Yeah, it seems like I had just done this last journal, but I've been away for a long time, so I feel like I have to make up for it.
New news, new news. . .well, I have a boyfriend now, Firen. This is obviously not his real name, but it is what I'm going to be calling him on here and other social medias, just to protect him. I've had not so nice people contact me before, and even though he can fully protect himself physically (he's now a black belt, woo!), I would like to keep our personal lives private (or at least what I don't share with you all). For those of you who know me IRL, please refer to him as the same. I would duly appreciate it.
I have a lot of cosplay and crochet progress to post up, so expect updates within the next few days. 'tis finals week this upcoming week at school, so please bear with me.
Any questions, please let me know!
I'll be making a poll soon about which cosplay I should do next.
I also have an etsy now, for those of you interested in buying something of mine.
to check out my shop!
Now, for a clean start. Ganbatte! Let's go!
Wow, it's really been a long time since I've done a journal like this. XD
I HAVE A COSPLAY FANPAGE ON FACEBOOK! GO 'LIKE' ME ON THERE! www.facebook.com/IkuniCosplay *flails* Because reasons, and because I'm almost at 50 likes! ^.^
New news. . .hmm. . .well, let's just cover the basics:
At the moment, I have a few new cosplays in the works. Mileena is a no go until I either train up my body or become more secure with it. As of right now, I'm going to be doing Poison Ivy as my next costume, and possibly an OC or two. Team Aqua Grunt is somewhere on that list, too. XD
I fixed my Wall Market Cloud costume! Yay! Buuuut I'm thinking of retiring it regardless. I'd really like to have a photoshoot with it, but I can't really think of any good places in the South East Wisconsin area that would fit well with it. :/ Anyone have any suggestions?
I finished my Queen Pitch Black costume in time for it's debut on Saturday for ACen '13, yay! Although while wearing it for the few hours that I did (putting on makeup alone took about an hour! Thanks
for the help!) I found out what I needed to fix. Aaaaaand a few days ago, I fixed it all, and I love my costume oh so much more! *rolls in happiness*
AMKE '13 was awesome. I roomed with some pretty spiffy people, and besides a few bumps in the weekend, everything turned out okay. I wish I had gotten some pictures of the cosplays that I did, but oh well. There's always next time. *shrugs*
ACEN '13 was AMAZING! I had amazing people rooming with me, and everything was so nifty, and-and! *flails* This year was SOOOOOO much better than last year! I actually DID things! ^.^ I'm definitely going back next year, just sayin'.
Got awesome pics of my cosplays thanks to
. She seriously does amazing work.
Matsuricon '13 is in August, and I'm going to be going with my siblings to Ohio! I'm finally going to meet
, too! We've been talking since October, and she's definitely become one of my closer friends. Yay!!
I have so many projects going on, it's ridiculous!! I've finished a good amount too, so that helps at least. My only problem is starting more projects than I finish them. XD
At the moment, I have 14 projects I have started that I need to finish. A few only need some accents sewed on, while others need specific parts crocheted. One of them is a pattern that I need to complete. . .well, two of them actually are. XD
ATTENTION ANY AND ALL KIRIBAN WINNERS, ETC!
I did lose my list of what I owe people. I know I owe a couple of pokeball keychains and a Xellos head to
(I just figured out how to do his hair, hun. He should be finished in the next few weeks. I'm sorry he's taking so long! *flails for being a bad person*) But if I'm forgetting someone, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I'm making a new list of what I owe people. :3 Thanks for being patient! ^.^

Unfortunately, commissions are closed at this time. There is no possible way for you to request a commission, because I will ignore anything that pertains to a commission. I will alert you all with a journal about commissions, but until then, no such thing exists in my life right now.
However, to reward those who keep reading though my entire journal, instead of just reading the top and then exiting, if you comment with the codeword "Oh Saltytree, oh Saltytree! How wonderful is your RAGE", you can get a free pokeball keychain, any color. :3 This will go until my next journal.
