Summer in Review

Wed Sep 3, 2014, 6:13 PM
Dear Friends, Watchers, and Visitors;

Thank you all, as always, SO MUCH! Over the summer my page surpassed 50,000 views - which is rather overwhelming. I was, as expected, insanely busy this summer, so here's a run down of what projects came to fruition and which did not. 

:bulletblack: I worked through my commissions wait list (FINALLY!) and stacked up a new one for fall. 
:bulletblack: Went to a wedding and Disney 3 times!!! Once with my best friend and twice with my boyfriend and his family. 
:bulletblack: Started my Princess project: Princess tee shirts! You can see some completed in my gallery and the full plan here
:bulletblack: I made my own cosplays for the FIRST time and premiered them at the infamous DashCon as well as DragonCon. Cosplays completed were: Street Wonder Woman and Belle's Ballgown. 
:bulletblack: I also made cosplays for my boyfriend, Sean M Moreno: Gaston and Beauty's Prince/Prince Adam
:bulletblack: Made my own pirating garb for shenanigans with the aforementioned boyfriend  aka Captain Francis Drake 
:bulletblack: I wrote a Renaissance Festival show with my girlfriends and we signed a multi-year contract to perform at the Carolina Renaissance Festival! You can see our facebook page about "The Angels" here.

Just about the only thing I did not get around to on my summer itinerary was more hair tutorials... sadly I had way less time on my hands than expected. Maybe more will appear this fall. 

Here are some of the pieces I made this summer: 
Street/Casual Wonder Woman by Durnesque Gold Velvet Belle by Durnesque Prince Adam/Beast Costume by Durnesque Little Mermaid Ballgown by Durnesque Green and Gold Reversible Pirate Garb by Durnesque Belle's Rose-covered Ballgown by Durnesque

You have an amazing talent. In a world of computers you must love the hands on aspect to your art. Great stuff.

Thank you very much! I do a fair amount of digital work too, though. Every photograph requires digital work to process, more than you might think, but I do love every aspect of what I do. :)
