Expiration Date:


You've all seen me posting about Cosplay Shinkou and getting subscriptions, so I figure why not explain the full situation to you all. There is a staff contest that who ever gets the most subscriptions gets a cash prize. Obviously I'd owe it to you all for helping me out, so here is my plan; my next cosplay from Borderlands 2 is Angel, wings and all. The cash prize would provide me the funds to finally make it and I'll do a easy to follow wing tutorial for the magazine if I win. If I do not win this contest, this costume will be seriously set back and may not happen for up to another year or more, if ever.

Subscriptions come in different prices 3 months, 6 months, one year, or a lifetime subscription. If you'd like to subscribe and you live outside of the US there is an email provided on the page for international people to inquire about subscribing. but you have to do it using THIS link -> cosplayshinkou.com/neon.shtml or it won't count for me. I'd really appreciate it if you guys could help me out here. ♥ And thanks for the support!

www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… * (so to be perfectly clear, TO BE ELIGIBLE you must have sent at least 1$ to the paypal ItsRainingNeon@Aol.com , shared the picture ,and liked the page on facebook, if you only have a Deviantart send at least 1$(usd) for entry, then write a journal entry about the giveaway (why you'd like it etc.) and link the photo from facebook :])

ALSO REMEMBER SHARING IS CRUCIAL!!!! DON'T BE THE PERSON WHO ENTERS, GET SELECTED THEN CAN'T WIN BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T LIKE AND OR SHARE !!!

*currently the Appa outfit is sized to fit me (roughly a size medium in us. sizing and it is a ultra soft stretch material ) but i've made back up paneling for the outfit so i can tailor it to whoever wins

* no close of contest date has been decided on yet*

*Also to whom ever wins i demand pictures, i have a bit of a pet peeve for giveaways that never seem to have a actual winner.

honestly,
without all of you i'd just be some chick running around d.c in an armored suit and heels yelling <3

I have gotten so many amazing opportunity's in the past year alone from being circulated by you all i couldn't even count them if i tried. I've been lucky enough to get to travel far more while still just in collage and have met so many other amazing and talented costumers and photographers. Its absolutely a dream come true, i honestly hope my continued work can still impress you all for years to come. <3

it means the world to have all your support and the general thank you's i give you in answer to all of your supportive comments never feels like they quite enough to cover to how much it means to me. thank you all<3

and just in case that didn't make you feel warm and fuzzy here's a cute puppy in a sweater :B->  a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphoto… <3

ello gents'

i always large gaps of time between my journal entries but just popping up to say there is gonna be a bit of a break from "smaller" cosplays showing up here after i finish posting pictures from my last 3 shoots this past weekend.

Im starting work on a cosplay that will hopefully be setting the stage for the amount of  work that will be put into my cosplay from now on. the goal is a cosplay from Diablo 3 for katsucon, wont tell you what class cus that ruins the surprise,

  but i'm pretty excited :3
in the event that my collage classes ruin this cosplay by not allotting me the needed time via lots of homework// rave outfit comission over load etc.etc. i'll be sure to mention it here i suppose? o3o

So this gurl ::points at self:: will only bore you all breifly but im on a mission >:3

i entered this national contest for "Otaku House." Up until entering i'd never heard about it in my life and did it on a whim
but upon being told i probably dont know enough people to actually win being as these are apparently a bit "cattie" in nature i was determined to actually try now.
I want to prove a good cosplayer who might not know everyone but still has talent can still win these events

your part you ask?

apparently i was more than mistaken xD.

By the by otakon was a blast met alot of amazing people and saw some beautiful cosplays and once home i was afraid to not keep up with my facebook...300 alerts and 50 friend request was a bit much o-o; but all and all i loved every minute and miss everyone already <3.

   Its a madhouse around here with midterms for summer quarter all ready here,
baltimore comic con to prep a power girl cosplay for*no funds to start D:*

BUT that aside

ok :3 so it's been a while,
though if you read or fallow these at all im sure you've noticed i never seem to bother you all with my ravid journal/blogging to begin with,
and instead of blaming it on lack of time, i guess we'll juat say i've been too busy making art for you allllll 8D * cough*lies*cough*  ಠ_ಠ
^^ so all formallities aside i've found lately i have a huge networking addiction, this probly has something to do with Kermit my new laptop never had one before but now i have internet EVERYWHEREEEEEE owo including class where i end up quoting little insaine art school quipps to my different network pages.
only problem here is i have the pages time and now the laptop but xD no one to blog to ... awsome xD
this speeks highly of my internet networking abilites no?
but if your curiousas to my daily shinnanigins feel free:

on a side bar i was finally forced into a bloggin mood due to the fact that they closed our student loudge, so instead of being IN the loudge playing video games were outside of it bruding in the hall talking about playing video games >_>; its kinda sad xD

also made an amazing discovery in the libray we have a dvd isle with all movies pretty much ever 8D and a huge video game isle HOMGEWRGWBRYJNBVFCXQWEARDGHYJMIGOTOANERDYSCHOOL :3 they keep their nerds happy here xD

well its 3 in the morning and im still procrastinating some of my final touches on my cosplay work and i decided its really no time like the present for that fresh blog smell *inhale*
;D ohhh yeahhh early monday mornings
hah but yes quite to the contrary unless there is a good reason to be up i try and avoid being an early bird, how ever with otakon on its was with in 3 days i have plenty of reasons to be pulling inhuman sleeping habits. xD
my boss at work is still trying to figure out how i am alive on so little sleep ( .3. she has clearly never tried to live a con schedual for a weekend)
All this aside i figured i'd leave a little life update for those who read these things,
ok for one im employed :D woo this was an older development actually but one im really happy about
two, i resolved to finish two BluzBlue cosplays for Otakon and have had success x3! plus i made a costume for Taylor <3 :3 who's also going it was a quick something but from here out it'll be awsome group cosplays forever xD. im looking forward to getting to show them off quite a bit ^^ plus i found out a friend of mine Jay is making a jin cosplay x3 so we'll be prancing about together on friday at otakon loving the photographer attention (this is of course assuming he somehow finishes in time). I remain single :D hizah! but i feel like its getting harder to stay this way ;x; why can't they leave me alone for a bit? anywho! I start collage at the art instatue in october and i can't wait!!!x3!
over all life is as grand as i can make it :3 oh and
UH MICHEAL JACKSON IS DEAD... k dats cool lets move on.
UH BILLY MAYS IS DEAD EH? k just means I'm going to use his icon more often
Anyone else wanna die? Huh? No? Kay just checking.

ah and the fun new development a group of people here have started something called CosplayBitchSlap
:3 which is basicly a large cosplay group that won't get its reputaion from its photoshoots or apperences at cons all over but rather youtube comedy video's about con's all over xD we are a group of critiques which also means we take a quality level to everything we will do, i can't wait to finally get that in full swing.
but yes theres a little update on life for everyone now im gonna go upstairs and attach some claws to my taokaka paws :3

All right! hurry for that new blog smell :B

So as of late i have had alot of projects in mind and some have begun to take wind :3 * horrible air pirate pun intended*,since katsucon i have planned a crazed speed cosplay making rampage for the un-released game BlazBlue (all guilty gear fans HAVE GOT to check this game out its hawtttttt), and i have developed a much more intense love for steampunk, culture and style which means im also working on a steam punk outfit ^^' hehe good news there is its almost done o.o mainly cus i had almost all of what i needed to make it :3 and which brings me to the next part of the busy-ness that is me resently,
my school, surprisingly, normally im not huge on doing artistic favors for my school >_>' but a favored teacher of mine i had last year for english asked me to start a comic series for the school paper,and well i guess his persistance over two years has paid off because i finally agreed. This is where my breif steampunk rant comes into play, well after i agreed i realised i had no vuage idea what it would be about, till my steam punk doodles gave me an idea, that when Eva Elmstone, Shira Culph,and Lila Prescott became my first good dynamic charater designs in months xD so i have decided on them to be the driving force in my comic strips tho im sure to add more characters later.

~Ah warning anything from here on is useless popycoc unless you want to know about the comic's story line~

The atmosphere of the comic so far is that it all takes place in a steam punk victorian era, Eva is the piolt of the Zylphia ( her airship) she is an inventor with an elaborately creative mind that can tend to get her in trouble when put with her boundless sense of adventure ,she is from an aristocratic family tho she never looks or acts above anyone. Shira Van Culph is also a piolt tho shipless untill he joined Eva when she passed through the desert near his crash site, he has a bit of a chip on his sholder but is all around helpful, He is an adventurer and never likes to lose to anyone he lives to see the world and new sights. Lila is a dainty and proper victorian girl who most pleases herself with hats and dresses of a almost ornate fashion, she looks down on many who she see's unworthy of her respect and firmly belives rules are there to be obeyed, tho on the other hand she is also the ship's weapon taction, specialist, mechanic, and inspector who has a favordom for large scale weaponry that you only have to fire once to get the job done, and has about as much personallity as a dead poodle.

and thats what i've got so far xD
very broad and wiley charaters :B im excited
but yes hopefully i'll be posting the comics on here soon
ah and i named it SteamPunk
