ALRIGHT IT'S TIME FOR AN UPDATE FOLKS.

I got back from Anime Expo last week, and was way too dead to post anything at the time, and I still have a lot of compiling to do, and a bunch of photos of a bunch of cosplays to post...... but for now:

Pokemon Adventures is the greatest adaptation of the Pokemon franchise and Ruby is the best character in it. Behold a gratuitous collage I have put together of my ORAS Contest!Ruby cosplay which is apparently too extra to be even a little recognizable IRL.

HEY AJ I SAW THIS EARLIER BUT DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING

Nice work man. It has been cool to see you gaining something of a following and standing with the cosplay community on the various social media.

I didn't recognize you when I saw this on Instagram, and was wondering when I started following a world-class cosplayer.

You'd be a great Zamasu. You have the "hello mortals" expression down perfectly.

I made new cosplays for fanime and AX and have a bunch of new photos, but before i post those i spent today re-editing old photos of my zelda cosplay. honestly i would make just about everything differently if i were to make this now, because i've improved a lot in 3 years, but my photo editing skills have ALSO improved a lot and at the very least i can do better justice to the photoshoot i did:

I'm trying to spend a lot more time and effort photographing and editing photos of my cosplays to do justice to document the work I put into them. Look forward to more consistent photos as I pay more attention to documentation moving forward. 8)

OKAY! The first new cosplay I made was Luke fon Fabre from Tales of the Abyss. I plan to take a lot more detail shots of this costume, plus I want to make him a sword, but in the meantime I had a lot of fun making ridiculous edits that still do a good job of showing off the costume, today:

Bottom image was just me having a lot of fun. The original pic was an awkwardly-lit low-res mirror selfie in the hotel room, but it's also my favorite full-body pic of the cosplay as a whole, so I was like "yolo i'mma work with this one." no regrettis tbh.
