Hi! I'm Ookamiyou. This site contains bits about me, where I've been, a look at my costumes, stories from and about past events/conventions and the people I've connected with because of it.
Holy wow, Detour. XD It really was a weekend I needed but the prep for it and the aftermath were pretty rough. I finally got my recovery "nap", almost a week later, on Friday (26/April/2013).
I've been taking time to wind down by playing Injustice: Gods Among Us (though I get pretty amped up while playing so it's kind of a wash XD ). Love the game. I'm terrible at fighters. XP
As for the costume front, Kazuki wasn't quite finished in time for a Detour Debut but I'm hoping to have it finished soon then I'll go from there on how to debut him. And I'm hoping to get a few pictures of Albedo and Ben in the next couple of days so I can update their icons on the costume page. After that (and a little more cleaning) I'll be starting on my Secret cosplays and debuting them as they are finished and get there first/test shoots.
And lastly, a bit of actually noteworthy news:
I'm going to be changing my alias soon. The only reason I haven't done it yet is that I want to change it for my dA, Facebook, Twitter, website and CosCom pages (in that order) all at the same time and the biggest hold up right now is having the money to get a membership at dA so I can change my name rather than make a new account (cause I really don't want to make a new dA).
As for some of the other sites I may need to make new accounts depending on the site's structure so updates on that will come as they happen. Any other cosplay related site I'm on/have been slacking on updating on will be changed after I get my website and CosCom accounts settled into the new alias.
And with that, I wrap up my current news. ^.^
Here's a guide of sorts for the pages linked on the side bar:
I suggest everyone start here.
I'd like to think it's a pretty good intro into what cosplay is and it also has a few of my personal thoughts on certain questions. It also includes some answers about my costumes in general.
General stats about me and a Cosplay Q&A I picked up from somewhere on the web. I'll randomly update the information found there as it changes.
A basic list of my active and retired costumes. Updated as their status changes.
Part one is a look at upcoming activites. Part two is a look at costumes & projects I'm working on.
I'm not so smug that I think I could have acomplished all this on my own. This is a general look at the people who've helped me get to where I am today.
A list of character costumes I'd like to one day make.
I'll use this to chronicle any events (con or otherwise) and give details on my costumes.
A list of all the costumes I've worn, worked on, and will be working on in the near future.
(Basicly a informationally scaled down combination of the Costume, Commissions, and second half of the Schedule page.)
