Beatrix cosplay by vitaminanime
Beatrix cosplay
Here is my VERY belated Final Fantasy IX Beatrix cosplay! I drafted the pattern myself and sewed most of it by hand the old fashioned way with a needle and thread. My neighbor let me finish it on the machine, but in all I would have to say I'm proud of sewing most of it by hand with a needle and thread. The fabric is some sort of cotton/poly mixture I got at a fabric store I discovered down the hill, I bought the leggings from TJMaxx, the armor was made of fabric, graft foam, Elmer's glue, hot glue, and elastic. The belt is made of duck tape and puff paint (not visible here) and the rose on the back (not pictured) is from a stencil I cut out myself and fabric marker.  Under the foot armor I have Converses, the eyepatch was tricky to wear because it goes right over my good eye so mostly I would wear it to the side and center it for pictures. The sword is made from foamboard, acrylic paint, hot glue and fabric and was FLIMSY. In spite of this , professional craftsmen who were there at Comic Con said that I was on the right track and there were people who only wanted pictures of the sword and not me. I guess because Final Fantasy 9 is a sort of obscure game and only the hardcore fans recognized me. Of all the cosplays I've done, this one was the most hot, heavy, and cumbersome one I've done yet. It was almost as hot and heavy and cumbersome as a real medieval knight's! (even my APH Belarus cosplay, with its long sleeves, long dress, two petticoats, stockings, and wig were not as hot as this) and the armor started falling apart even before I left the house and each day I kept on ditching more and more armor (and the belt) until all that was left was the eyepatch, and even that fell apart when I took it off for the last time. I would like to do this one again, but because it was so hot and heavy and cumbersome, I'm reluctant. Which is unfortunate because I worked so hard on it!

I made an executive decision. I dropped my Anatomy and Physiology class earlier this week. I do need it for my major, I'm now no longer full time and I'm getting my financial aid cut from one hundred percent to seventy five percent, but I don't regret it for even a second. It was SOOPER early in the morning, and as you know I'm a night owl so that meant only getting three hours of sleep a night on nights with Anatomy in the morning, I would have to set my alarm at 5 so I could snooze it for an hour, even then when I got to class I would often be so tired I couldn't take notes. I also needed to do ten additional hours of studying a week, and I was not crazy about the Lab professor. If I choose to stay in college and not go to Continuing Education for job certification, I'll take it another semester, but at a time that's more convenient for me. Right now, I'm just too mentally unstable to handle all that studying. You'd think I'd know better than to take an early morning class, but now I KNOW not to take an early morning class in the future UNLESS there are NO OTHER AVAILABLE class times. I also now have more time to study for Math, and I can get more sleep and I've been churning out stories right and left. I feel like I'm back from the dead, and I seem to be returning to normal. Dropping Anatomy is a delay in getting my degrees, and while I still don't know what I'm going to do with my life, the future looks a lot less bleak when you've had a good night's sleep.

Another semester has dawned like a bloodshot eye, and I scarcely had any time to recover from last semester's onslaught. My class load is heavier and harder, and my classes are as follows:

-Cardio Conditioning
-Health
-Math
-DSPS Study hall
-Anatomy
-Modern Dance

Health is ok, indifferent to DSPS Study Hall (I just am getting credit for studying), math is ok but I'm really worried about it, Anatomy is interesting but there's A TON to memorize and while I like my lecture professor i'm not crazy about my lab professor. I really like Modern Dance, and i got the Cardio Conditioning coach from hell. All right, she means well, but she can be rude to people who aren't in the top physical shape, and in the past few years i've been slacking in the fitness department nad no longer run four miles a day or an eight minute mile, a good 90 percent of the rest of the class runs in circles around me, I HATE having to do pushups and situps on the hot Astro-Turf in the blazing sun, (seriously, that stuff gets hot), and I leave feeling exhausted and humiliated. I'm thinking of dropping that course. Even though Anatomy is interesting, THERE IS SO MUCH TO LEaRN! Honestly, whoever named all the surfaces on all the bones had WAY too much time on their hands. I have a test coming up this week, and I have had zero attention span whatsoever and can barely focus on studying. I'm still battle weary from last semester, I've been very mentally unstable lately and almost needed to be institutionalized the night before the first day of school (I kid you not), and all the classes and studying are getting to me. Even worse, I have early morning classes four days a week, and while the parking is great early in the morning, I feel like a zombie in my early morning classes because I'm a night owl and typically only get four hours of sleep a night on the days I need to be there at 8 AM. As a matter of fact I should be studying right now, but this is so much more fun and interesting than the textbooks and study guides. Though what I really need right now is a trip to the Bahamas, it's time to crash my way through the studying and the pain once again!

Hand and Shackle by vitaminanime
Hand and Shackle
Practice drawing both a hand (my hand) and a shackle. So I get two practices for the effort of one. And I feel trapped right now, so it's fitting

believe me, oh wily one, I would keep the llamas coming, but I'm afraid Deviantart allows only one llama sacrifice per customer...(and it's hard to type with llama blood on my hands)
