As it Goes...

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 11, 2014, 9:56 PM

Hey guys!! I want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of my journey with Elsa! She has been such a big project and has really challenged my skills as a costume designer and maker!  I am overall very happy with how she turned out, and look forward to finishing up the final details of her costume!!!  So...what's next on the agenda??

The new Thor from the Avengers NOW getting ready to be released in October certainly has caught my eye!!!  I have already started working on her. :) 

So. A lot of things have been happening lately, especially today and yesterday.  I want to reach out to everyone who is being affected by the rioting that is going down in St Louis. I live in St Louis area, but I have friends who are much closer to the devastation and danger than me. I hope everyone stays safe during this time. 

I also want to reach my heart and prayers out to the family and friends of the late Robin Williams and JJ Murphy. These are surely difficult times for everyone.

Commissions for Fall 2014 are now closed, and the Winter 2014 commissions will be opening soon!

My most recent stops have been my guest appearances at Anime Iowa, Cosplacon, and Akaicon.  I also hit Anime Midwest as a craftmanship judge and had a ton of fun as an attendee at ACEN. Next stop will be Archon and Nebraskon!!!  I have gotten to meet so many wonderful and amazing people this past year! <3

Once again I thank everyone for your tremendous support and love!!!  I hope to hear from more of you or get to meet more of you wonderful people!!!

Battle Elsa by MimiruCosplayDiary
Battle Elsa
I can't express how proud of this costume I am. 1027+ hours of work so far and still some tweaking to do before she can be considered 100% complete. :3  Materials used include worbla finest art, wonderflex, instamorph, resin, craft foam, silk, and satins. This is a design that I created myself for the character. I wanted to capture a little bit of that Snow Queen in her. This Elsa is a little older than the film version by about three years. There are over 250 scales on the corset and I utilized emblems from Elsa's coronation gown into the corset design. The silver details on the armour are airbrush detailing and the shirt also has been faded into a dark blue at the edges of the sleeve with airbrush (I love gradients!).

She has matured in magic and skill and knows how to better protect her people and make them happy.  Initially when I came up with her design, I was a bit afraid to do it because it would be so drastically different than the film! It wouldnt be super accurate as far as the costume went. She went through 13 different designs before I settled on this one. The key was keeping what was obviously ELSA and incorporating other elements into her costume such as her coronation dress emblems and the icy look of her dress and corset. <3 The scales replace the corset's squares for a more battle-like approach.

The Cold Never Bothered Me by MimiruCosplayDiary
The Cold Never Bothered Me
Battle Elsa. I started working on this costume back in February, and to date I have put in over 1027 hours of work and still going. This is my most precious cosplays (and ambitious!) that I have ever done, and I am by far happy with the outcome. The main materials include silk, worbla, resin, wonderflex, and instamorph. The wig was an Arda wig that I sewed extra wefts into in a different colour. Stay tuned for more images of Elsa. <3 This was entirely my own design concept and I honestly love it.

So I totally stumbled onto your Deviant Art by accident this morning haha.  I was looking at stuff related to dark photography and a Harley Quinn picture you took showed up.  I was like that fountain looks like it's at anime iowa and then I noticed the username.  xD
