Where did 2021 go?
I swear 2020 was yesterday! Since my last post, I obviously have not kept up on the blog but I've actually been so busy this year. I finished my sewing class and decided to take online summer sewing class, as well as continually making cosplay, non-cosplay and even commissions (very selectively). CosTalk Live has been going strong and I've even secured some partnerships and hopefully more in the future. In addition to my non-cosplay side of life, I've been working with groups like the Arizona Asian Chamber of Commerce, and most recently, as an on-camera host for the Asian Media Network. Oh, and I'm also just finishing up studying for my real estate license.
YEAH I KNOW RIGHT
Somehow it's all just caught up to me at once and this week has been a whirlwind in my brain.
Sometimes I just want to do NOTHING for a whole week and be creative. But since I work from home, on my own hours, there's really no point... but still...
Currently, cosplay wise, here's what's going on:
-CosTalk Live still has its ongoing partnership and discount code COSTALKLIVE for 15% off with CosplayCompany.com
-We've just discussed an ongoing partnership with PixyPros Selfie Museum with 2 locations - 1 in Tempe and 1 at Arrowhead Mall. We'll be the cosplay arm of the company, managing the cosplay night events and communicating and marketing
-We're teaming up with the SuperLadies Foundation donating a cosplay basket for a raffle prize for their winter ball in November.
-I've done a few collabs with another production group and a podcast
-I'm working on my 20th anniversary cosplay, a serious glow up - Rinoa Heartilly Hannah Alexander style!
-Working on a Moana costume commission for my princess party company
-Making plans for the first in-person con since the pandemic, SabotenCon.
If I'm so busy you ask, why am I taking time to write a blog? Writing definitely helps me organize my brain, and frankly, I don't do nearly enough of it. Blogging helped me so much in the past, and I'm trying to create habits in my overall goal of self-improvement! So hopefully this helps jumpstart it again and I can keep it going. Thanks for reading!
