First time we wore our our Disney cosplays was for Toycon 2011:
Picture-heavy Toycon Day 1 Report! Disney cosplay!Toycon 2011 (Day 1)
Here's my usual (ang getting increasingly late) report about the cons we attend!
We went as a Disney group last Toycon! And I just realized we don't have a decent complete group shot. That's okay I guess because it's definitely not the last time we'll be wearing the costumes, and we all had things we wanted to improve. We have a habit of doing that with new cosplays wear them to a con and observe pictures from it after to see what looked wrong or felt uncomfortable about the costumes or wigs or makeup. It's helpful! Some of our friends were also unable to join us for Toycon so we'll definitely be doing this again.
Most of the photos are from my camera but I borrowed some from friends and albums we were tagged in.
LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS-
So we saw this store, and we needed to take a photo in front of it for obvious reasons So there's Dom :iconweakman: as Captain Li Shang, myself :iconbehindinfinity: as Ping, and Bok as Ling from
The weekend after, a few of us got together to do a studio shoot because we were just excited, and I wanted to finally try out a pseudo movie poster photo treatment for cosplay photos. It was definitely a challenge. But it made me really happy to show my friends how the final images turned out.

This is what the setup was for ~merkymerx Miguel's Captain Jack portrait. I edited the rope in. He was actually holding this stick held up by Dom ~Weakman. I made sure his pose was right, and that all the details were arranged and lit up properly while Erving adjusted the light settings and took photos.
And then Miguel went all Yuna on us
And some NERF guns materialized and Bok ~Somemaskedude became Yuna too
Taking some candid shots with my digicam, with the friendly neighborhood photobombers.
OKAY I'M RELOADED
THIS IS THE TALE

Bok joining in the dressing down fun, and transforming into a Jedi from being Ling
I shall wrap up this shoot with our group shot:
For an exciting bit of news, I was commissioned to do an illustration for Clinique! I was one of the four artists they approached for this project. Our works were unveiled during their big launch event last January 19. I'd like to talk more about it another time. For now, here are some pictures from the event.
The lovely and talented Valerie Chua . I had a fun evening hanging out with her and Miguel.
Val with her gorgeous watercolor painting. I love her flowy compositions and soft colors.
A preview of my artwork. When I've finished setting up my proper art blog, I'll post a better image, along with a bit about the process.

I use my Facebook page to announce news, post previews, and link when I update my deviantART of Tumblr.
Twitter is for for little life updates, mostly to help myself keep track of the days. It's also good for keeping myself entertained when I'm out.
Lately I've been posting on my Tumblr sort of regularly. I use it for:
miscellaneous short general updates
my snapshots which I feel aren't quite good enough to be standalone posts in my gallery
answering questions sent to my Tumblr Ask
occasional fandom posts
posts about food
