Deathsmiles Photoshoot: Preview!

My cosplay partners in crime and I had a WONDERFUL time at our Deathsmiles photoshoot in Salem, MA! Where better to do a Deathsmiles shoot than Halloweentown itself? Our awesome photographer, IndieNate, was so fun and easy to work with, and we're excited to see all of the photos. He was kind enough to provide us with a few preview shots just a few days after the shoot! Here are some, but you can see all five shots at http://flickr.com/indienate. Please check them out! I'll be making another post when we have the full shoot!
    
I made a few repairs to the costume for the shoot; namely, I fixed my poor droopy wing by reinforcing the wire inside the spine. I also touched up the scissors a bit to keep them from falling apart for a little longer, and tried to rejigger the hair wings, but some of them fell out, anyway. Oh, well... I have a better plan for them next time, and they look okay in the photos, anyway. It's nice to work on existing costumes in little chunks like that. I have a bunch of tweaks to make to other costumes, so that I can wear them again! I'm excited to do this. Anyway, please enjoy the photos, check out the rest of IndieNate's stuff while you're there, and stay tuned for more Deathsmiles :3

New Layout

Hello all, I'm trying a new blog layout. It's a bit plain, but I thought I'd try it for a while before taking the time to update the colours, etc. Let me know how you like it!

A Word About Emails

Hello Readers,

Today I received a backlog of emails that were apparently lost in the ether somewhere for a while. Some were from last year!

I'm very sorry if you emailed me and I never responded. I responded to several emails today.

I did some tests and the email for the site seems to be working now, so please continue to send them my way. I know now that I need to test my email system every once in a while to make sure it's working :|

Again, apologies if you were awaiting my reply! I always do my best to answer emails promptly.
