First, I'm going to start off with the link to my interview that aired on the local ABC News station today www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1…
I was really happy with how it turned out, and I hope you guys like a sneak peak of my Nightingale Armor
Also, since I'm spamming this on both my Facebook and Instagram, I might as well spam it on here: I'M OPEN FOR COSTUME COMMISSIONS RIGHT NOW! Seriously, like I've been in a costuming mood really hardcore lately, so if you want anything made within reason, feel free to send me a note on here with your inquiry
In other news, my ankle therapy is going ok. My ankle is way more painful than it is supposed to be at this point, so I'm going to have to have it reevaluated by the sports orthopedist again :-/ I'm aiming for no reconstructive surgery at this point. My physical therapy team is fantastic though, and they're all really nice. Some of them are even gamers! I got to have a good conversation with one of them about the wonders of Skyrim; he might have even logged more gaming hours than I have!
I've been working on my Storenvy (it's taking forever, I know). I'm going to have the base price for my prints being $15. They're this price because I'm making them 12x17". I figured, if I'm going to buy a print of some cosplayer, I'd rather it be borderline poster size lol. What do you guys think? Would you be interested in getting a poster size print, or would you rather them be a more normal size, like an 8x10"? I also decided to sell some cosplay accessories as well. Since I'm a hippie at heart, which I'm sure you all have noticed by my hair, I'm making a couple different types of flower and nature headbands for fantasy and medieval style cosplay. I think they look really cute, and they're super durable! They can withstand being poked by a baby AND WORKING WITH POWER TOOLS! Seriously, I was wearing one in my friend's workshop earlier this week while I was starting on the staff for my new Sanguine Rose.
Speaking of working on a Sanguine Rose, I'M WORKING ON ANOTHER SKYRIM WEAPON! Yes, yes, I've been going crazy with Skyrim lately, but I really like the game and armor designs from it
Also, Mark and I have been throwing around the idea of officially forming a Skyrim Project, styled after the Zelda Project. It would obviously be a several year long endeavor, and we would need a lot of people to collaborate on it. If there are any artists out there who would be interested in partnering up with us on our crazy endeavor, let me know!
On an ending note, in light of Facebook's new name purge, I've decided to finally cave and make an actual "fanpage". I wasn't going to make one until I reached my friend limit in another couple months, but I decided to be proactive rather than wait like a sitting duck. This is the link to it www.facebook.com/mikomiscostum…
and I would love it if you guys hit that like button for me
I'm going to post on there WAY more frequently than I do on here (obviously), and I'll also post cosplay photos on there first. I will still be doing the majority of my announcements on here first, but for my mundane in progress photos and pictures that aren't portfolio worthy, that's the place to check
