It's Been a Long Time

well not that long really. August was a terribly busy month with Fan Expo prep and showtime. I always thought 3 days wasn't enough because I was having so much fun! Although when I actually did the 4 days I think it was more than enough. Here's a picture of me at the table with our wonderful merchandise which we pretty much sold out of almost everything. The big hit was the My Little Pony-tize yourself. We made a killing with tons of repeat customers.

We had lots of fun and I cant wait til next year! (funds permitting)

So now that that's finished, onto the next set of events: a fashion illustration art show I'm being featured in: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=122712391162059 . It seems to be a small venue but any kind of exposure is good exposure. I will be attending a fancy smancy wine and cheese kick off party on the 22nd and the show runs all week displaying wonderful pieces by other talented artisans as well as my work. I hope, in all honesty, that I can either get a contact for a full time job, or some major freelance work down the line. I'm very thankful for a wonderful site entitled Freelanced.com seeing as since I posted my work on there the fashion magazine found me and inquired whether I wanted to be part of this in the first place. I will be shopping for my attire this weekend with my fashionista aunt and cousin as well as hair accessories, which is a must for me. I LOVE hair pieces! (or what they call fascinators) I'll post pictures of what I finally choose ;)

Another big event (2 days later none the less) is my best friend's wedding. I've known her since we were both 4 years old, and had many many wonderful experiences together. I'll be in the bridal party (obviously) sporting a wonderful Alfred Angelo gown in eggplant purple with a victorian lillac sash. I love how this outfit looks on me and compliments my figure. Once again pictures to come. I'm going to be looking for some kind of wedged shoe to wear seeing as I want to be comfortable as well as classy and it has to be silver s...I'm not sure how much luck I'm going to have with that. Oh well.
