OH. TOTALLY FORGOT TO POST THIS.
Bethany posted my Wonder Woman on Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) on ComicsAlliance.com, waaaaaaay back in May. I'm a derp for neglectiving to mention it here!
My general philosophies on what I do:
Cosplay: I do it for fun, and I love to have fun with it. I do the characters that appeal to me for whatever reason, without regards as to whether they are popular or not. I definitely don't take it seriously other than the fact that I won't wear something unless I'm committed to it and really like the character and the costume. I've met so many wonderful people through this hobby!
Photography: I'm really nothing more than a snapshot-taker. I think I have a decent eye for composition and viewpoint, but I consider myself completely ignorant of how to manipulate lighting and exposure. I rarely photoshop pictures unless it is to color-correct or repair dust, scratches, or minor edits.
Traditional Arts: I got fed up with 'formal' art instruction in high school and dropped art class completely. I didn't draw again until college, when I used it as a technique to stay awake in chemistry class. I've had no real training in drawing, and even less in painting, so anything I do is just sketched from photographs. I go through fits and starts - I haven't drawn in a few years since I have been more absorbed in cosplay instead, but I imagine that some day I'll wander back to it.
Current Residence: Massachusetts
Favourite style of art: Pre-raphaelite/realism, Art nouveau
