Belayed DA 3 year Anniversery!

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 6, 2014, 8:31 PM

I missed making a post about my 3 year anniversary here on DeviantART but that cannot be help. Especially with all the things happening in my life lately.

Well, March 12 marked my 3 year anniversary here on DeivantART. This was the first website I had to post my art, photos, and sewing publicly so it was special for me. Also, I created this profile at a time in my life when my life was riddled with problems and it seemed like my life was falling apart without a way to repair it. Spending an hour or so look at amazing drawings, pretty dress, amazing cosplays, and spectacular photographs gave me an hour to relax, be an artist, and enjoy art for a while.

I also remember back then I had such grand ideas for sewing cosplays that ended up not getting completed. Three years later some cosplay projects did get completed, but others are still incomplete. I still want to complete the costumes I began, such as my Astha court dress and my hand embroidered Princess Euphemia dress, but to be completely honest I feel a huge amount of guilt and shame about never completing the costumes when I said I would. Also, the construction of some of the costumes (Euphie) has me puzzled and I'm still trying to figure out how I wanted it to be made while other costumes (Astha) is now too short and small to fit my taller (and bustier) figure.

So much has changed in three years. I have no clue what my life is doing anymore, but I feel far more confident than ever before. I went to a convention alone for the first time last year and I survived in spite of getting sick! I'm far healthier than I was three years ago. I'm also taller. By how much I don't know, but I can reach the top shelf in the kitchen when before I could reach only the bottom self. I've made friends along the way and lost contact with others. Still, it makes me the person I am today and I'm better for it.

In closing, thank you to all my followers and those that favorited and commented on my art in these past three years! I would've given up on this site long ago if it wasn't for your support!
