I've been oh so busy last months... my goodness me.
Not with costumes, not with photography; but with something entirely different.
A new place!~
Fact is; A short while ago I was petsitting my parents dog; which recently broke her leg, when my phone rang.
It was a nice lady, asking me if I was prepared for a huge suprise, ofcourse this made me very curious.
Then she told me that I was now the very first on a year-year-year-long waitinglist for my very own appartment! And!! That there was now one available for me!!!
At that point my jaw dropped to the floor, because honestly; I was thinking about this to happen in maybe two years, but most certainly not now!~
It took a lot of organisation because I had to basically decide if I wanted it in two days... which wasn't possible; looking at money, job, etc etc.
Luckily for me the organisation understood there was no way I could make such a huge decision right away. They decided to deal with the financial damage to leave the appartment one month empty for me to decide.
In the meantime I had to take care of a LOT of things.
Now Im writing this in an empty room because I get the key of my new place TOMORROW! (24.04.2015)
O MY GOD!!~ Im SO excited!! My very, own, "big", PLACE! My own kitchen, living room, hallway, shower, bedroom!
My goodness people! Im so super excited. And with that I also finally get the space to spread fabric properly in rooms for cosplay! (Lol yes I actually thought this before... its a big thing for me.)
Speaking of cosplay...
I haven't really done a lot in cosplay lately... I know.
I mainly have been busy making a dress for the Carnavale in Venice in February. (img10.deviantart.net/fcd7/i/20…)
Shortly after my return from Venice, this offer came my way and my whole world has been wrapped around this move ever since.
Next saturday I would go to the Elf Fantasy Fair in the Netherlands... A Fair I basically look forward to the entire year. But faith decided I will move to my new place upcomming saturday.
Honestly I wasn't too excited about THAT fact, but I basically had no choise. Besides, I will still visit the fair now, only on Sunday now. So for whoever is going there on sunday, I will always be happy to meet new faces.
With that being said...
I also own a Nikon 50mm lens now!~
I mean seriously; I lost this specific lens two or maybe three years ago, forcing me to stop concert photography. I have always missed it. Im so happy to have it in my inventory again, I dont think I will start with concert photography again. I just enjoy freelancing and doing my thing whenever I feel the urge. (Like on things like Elfia.)
I have always been afraid of negative opinions on my work, and though I realise opinions are just.., well opinions... my own opinion was always very much influenced by the opinion of others. So basically, whatever I did was in my own eyes always bad, and not just a little. But I couldn't even see what others would even like in my work. Whilst during the packing I found back older books filled with photo's... and all I could think was: "I was actually pretty good... ." - I was suprised by how my own vision has taken a turn.
Now-a-days; I decided I do what I like... and it's not something I want to earn my money with... so if it's not liked by someone else... I'm sorry but I did my best. There isn't much else I can do, now can I?
I mean; I would lie if I don't feel jealous if I see someone with an awesome cosplay... and I just can't make something like that yet.
For now I think what I do is fine for me, and in the end... Isn't that what matters most?
There is just so much going on right now.
I am very eager to start/continue with new cosplays.
Recently added to my wishlist is the super-amazing character named 'Shay Patrick Cormac' from Assassins Creed Rogue. The game I was very sceptic about in first place. But Yeah... I was very wrong... I love the concept and the game itself...(img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…)
I think its an amazing game and I love this character... (He even took a very close spot next to my love for the character Haytham Kenway.) I dont think he is the bad guy, I even feel for him. I haven't finished the game yet, but I adore it.
&Hey, black and red costumes... I just have to adore that, don't I?
Let's start with going to bed for now... and then tomorrow at 11.30 a.m...
Celebrate a miniature party, with my newly obtained key of a fabulous new place.
Sorry for the late update...
I hope you don't mind.
