Sybill Trelawney by LadyKnightAlanna
Sybill Trelawney
Photographed at last!  Here is Professor Sybill Trelawney, Deathly Hallows Part 2 version with that amaaaaazing overcoat.  I am still looking for a screen-accurate scarf though.

Laura Roslin by LadyKnightAlanna
Laura Roslin
My cosplay of President Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica.  All construction by me, and I even drew the map of Kobol in the centerfold of my Book of Pythia!  I really loved Laura's development during the series, but the ending for her and Admiral Adama was truly heartbreaking :(

It's been a long time since my last journal entry (er...flounce?)!  I'm still probably not going to get back into dA full time (btw, WTH is up with the new logo?  I am so confused...), but I figured I should give you guys some updates about what's going on my professional/cosplay/study life.

I am earning my bachelor's degree in about a month and a half.  Crazy, right?  And it's not in what I ever would have dreamed it would be in.  No, I'm walking out of here with a bachelor of arts in Spanish language and culture.  WTF, right?  Doesn't change my determination to continue my path into the costuming industry.

Yeah, that's next.  I got accepted into a graduate program at Fashion Institute of Technology for textile conservation and museum curation.  So there's that.  I'm also going to be working as a stitcher/dresser at Creede Repertory Theatre during the summer months, starting May 17th.  That's in the middle of po dunk, Colorado, but it's a pretty prestigious theatre anyway.  I got turned down by a lot of places during the application period from January until March, but at least I've got a good beginning of a rejection letter collection, no?  I think Creede was was the best outcome anyway.

I am still cosplaying!  I have no intention of stopping.  My wishlist runs on and on...the world will probably explode before I get through them all, but at least I have my work cut out for me.

So that's what is happening.  I am still on the fence about Fashion Institute of Technology.  To be honest, I am pretty burnt out on taking classes.  The four months I spent in Spain in fall 2014 changed my perspective in a large way.  There is so much of the world to see--and I want to see it before I can't get away from work.  On a more short-term level, I also have little interest in living in New York City...that's too busy and too expensive for my taste, and I'd rather walk across burning lava or be forced to attend every single Republican rally that will ever happen ever than have another roommate or godawful meal plan.  Never again.  EVER.  Seriously, fuck that.  On the other hand, if I do not do it now, I have a feeling I will never do it...and then greatly regret that later.  I'll probably do it.  After all, the acceptance rate for the program is only about 20-25%...that's not something most people can say they have overcome.  It also gives me a chance to get a stitcher/draper certification, which is a highly sought after skill in the costuming world.  I have a pretty good idea where I want to go, but the road is far from straight.
Holo the Wisewolf - Progress by LadyKnightAlanna
Holo the Wisewolf - Progress
It's been awhile!  How's about I post some stuff?

This is a progress shot from about a month ago of my newest cosplay, Holo the Wisewolf from Spice And Wolf, which is my competition cosplay for Anime Boston 2015 in about a week.  Technique-wise, I think she is one of my best costumes so far.
