Resting Ripple by GryffinsFate
Resting Ripple
A random photo I found from a couple years back at ACen. We actually ended up going to lunch at Hibachi Chinese buffett before going down to the convention center for the day. This was taken in the entryway. As you can see, I was already in full costume for the day, and being that our hotel is about seven miles out from the convention, people really had no clue what I was dressed for. I was getting the strangest looks from people, and some filthy looks from a few little old ladies(which was quite funny). In fact, when my mom went to the bathroom there were apparently a couple girls in there talking about the "freak" in the weird outfit. Ah, I love narrow-minded people.
Oddly enough, I got more strange looks going to eat in this than I did the day I went to Applebees in full Lara Croft make-up, all dirty and bloodied.
Good times.

Dragon Breath by GryffinsFate
Dragon Breath
A collab of in progress pictures I took as I drew and painted the dragon onto the back of my top for my Seung Mi-na cosplay. This was probably the most difficult part to draw out, especially since I am no artist, and I did it all by looking at pictures. But I am actually really proud of how it turned out.
I used a fine point sharpie to draw the outline onto the fabric, then painted it gold using acrylic paint because I couldn't find fabric paint the right color. I also painted one my layer on after the final picture, so the color is more vibrant.

This is the picture I used for reference. :…
Alright, seeing as I never posted an ending journal for ACen, and I've been kinda distant from this place for the past few months, I figured its about time for an update of some kind. I don't know of how much interest it'll be to any of you, but I'll do my best.

Just to clarify, ACen was very fun this year and I got to catch up with so many friends. Including DeadlyNeurotoxin, VerticalOrbit, and HalloweenTownKairi. As well as getting to meet PrinceScoobert for the first time. :3 I love seeing old con friends and making new ones, so this was alot of my fun for the weekend.

As far as new Deviations, I probably won't have many for a while. I haven't had the time to do an shoots of Lenne and Aerith yet as I have with my other costumes. Although, I am trying to color a few more LineArts, including the caricature I got done of me in my Aerith costume, which is going to be very fun to do. So, hopefully I'll have something like that to put up sometime soon if nothing else.

And in the subject of future cosplays/cons, I have a small list for you. (If you care... >.>;;; ) Right now, the only con I am seeing in my future is next ACen. Money and time have been tight lately, which is sad because I would love to attend another con. Cosplays however, I do have plans for. Even if it is next year, I am working on two new costumes already. Aqua from KH: BBS (Yes, another KH cosplay, I'm sorry.), and Kyo Sohma from Fruits Basket.  And as a side note, I'm planning on being Tinkerbell for Halloween this year, so there will probably pictures of that. XD

So...thats about all I have to offer you guys. I'll try to be more active in future. Catch ya later! =)

Well, I'm your not-so-average teenage girl. I am not giggly, or boy crazy, or afraid of getting my hands dirty. I enjoy country music, singing my heart out, and video games. Aside from my "country roots", you can definetly call me a nerd. I hope to someday be played on the radio beside Reba, and Garth, and Carrie, and Chris. ♥
I'm just a girl, trying to chase after her dream, really. And having fun on the way there.

Favourite cartoon character: Scooby Doo. XD
