A new year, a new me!

The skin's header goes here


Hello DeviantArt!

So first off, I wanted to tell everyone that ever stop by my page this:
THANK YOU!!
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to even glance at my page. Thank
you for looking at my cosplay, my art, my ramblings and odd comments. Just...
Thank you... That being said, this is probably going to be a long journal, so I'll
just post a tl;dr at the bottom so you don't have to go through this entire tirade.
If you do, please bare with me as I try to get my thoughts in order, as this is going
to be quite an emotional post.

Over the past three years I've been dealing with a plethora of issues that has
basically forced me to change as a person (luckily for the better). I was diagnosed
with PTSD from prior service, severe chronic depression with frequent thoughts of
suicide, I lost "friends" whom ended up being toxic, I lost family members to
cancer, and I almost fell into a financial hole that I couldn't pull myself out of. It
had gotten so bad that I almost lost the passion for the one thing that I truly
love: Cosplay.

In my cosplay community, I had been told that I was too fat to cosplay, too ugly,
too 'bad' (never figured out that one), and would never amount to anything as a
cosplayer. I was told my skills weren't to par, that it was my fault things went
wrong, that it was my fault that things were broken or didn't come out right,
it was my fault that things weren't perfect. And for that reason, I wasn't allowed
to compete with whom I thought would support me. I was about to quit and
wash my hands of the cosplay community, because if I wasn't good enough, why
even bother?

Because I refused to go down without a fight. I wanted to prove myself one last
time. That was the year that I made this...
NDK Competition 2013 Group - Sakurahime by trinityrenee
I didn't win any awards that year, but that was the year I was told that it was
unfair that I competed in Intermediate, because my skills had far surpassed that
of anyone else in the category, and I should be moved up to Masters. If it wasn't
for my friends who supported me though this time, I probably wouldn't be here
today. Thanks to them, I'm now an award winning cosplayer (Yes, I'm going to
toot my own horn, I have won 5 awards for my cosplay to date.), a cosplay
judge within my community, and the second in command for the cosplay
department for Colorado Anime Fest, a con that just started last year.

My cosplay is what makes me.... well... me. I'm thankful that I now have a group
of friends who support me in the community and that I've been asked to do
great things for this community. I'm thankful that my friends have helped me start
my own cosplay Youtube show. I am thankful that I have the support and love
from everyone close to me in this community. Thank you...

tl;dr - I had a really shitty few years that I tried to end, found my passion again,
and I love all your faces!! DFTBA!!

Trin needs your help...

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 4, 2015, 9:47 AM


Hey everyone! I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything of real
importance, but I need to post this call for help. I'm up to my neck in bills and
unfortunately, my day job just doesn't cover everything. So I need you help!
I'm not asking for money, but rather I'm selling a lot of really cool stuff that I've
made in hopes to raise some money to help out. Christmas is just around the
corner! If you could please take a moment and look at what I have to sell, I'd
really appreciate it! I love you all and you've made my life so much better! :3

Thank you for supporting me through watches and comments.
Thank you for showing me new techniques and awesome WIP's.

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 21, 2014, 9:38 AM


Hey everyone!

raise more money!

please take a look here. I really really need your help! It's going to be updated
all week, so I'll update my journal with every new item that goes up. Please
please PLEASE help out a fellow cosplayer! It would be appreciated like
none other! <3 I love yo faces!!

2013 Hopes and Dreams

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 25, 2012, 10:20 AM



So I haven't really gotten to say anything over the course of the last year
because I've been focusing on too many things at one time. Not a good
idea for someone like me! XD So I figured I'd at least write down my 2013
hopes and dreams in an attempt to accomplish them. I know this really
doesn't mean much to you guys, but it means a lot to me. All I ask is for
support in my endeavors and hope that I actually succeed for this 2013 year!


Cons to Attend
Animeland Wasabi - March 1st - 3rd
Starfest - April 19th - 20th
Denver Comic Con - May 31st - June 2nd
Anime Expo - July 4th - 7th
Nan Desu Kan - September 13th - 15th
Nan Desu Kan: New Years Eve - December 31st - January 1st, 2014

Cosplay to Make

Connor Kenway - Assassin's Creed III
Sakura Hime - Tsubasa

Thank you to everyone who have taken the time and interest to even watch
me and comment on my things. It truly means so much and it just makes me
want to work more for you. Hopefully this 2013 year will be the best one ever!

Requests and Reminders

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 7, 2011, 8:22 AM

So over the last few days, I've gotten a ton of requests for Cosplay pictures,
Journal Skins... Hell, even actual art pictures. So I figured, why not offer
requests? So that's what I'm going to do. If there's anything you want to see,
whether it be a cosplay picture or tutorial, a journal skin, an art piece, leave
a comment and let me know. I'll do my best to fill your request! I also offer
cosplay commissions.




Cosplay Commissions



I normally try to keep my commissions cheap. The price varies per
actual commission, but normally it's the price of fabric plus $50 labor.
If you would like a commission, please don't hesitate to contact me via
comment or even note. Give me a picture of what you want to cosplay
and what you have in mind for fabric and I'll give you a quote. All of my
commissions are hand made. I don't buy anything but supplies.

Things I can do:
Outfits
Wigs (depends, contact me)

Things I can't do:
Armor
Shoes
Props (Depends. Contact me and I can tell you)




Con Schedule



Here's my planned Con Schedule:

So Happy Christmahanukwazikkah everyone!

Well, I found out that once again my hours are going to be cut at work, and while I'm looking for another job here where I live, I need to make money... So I'm offering Cosplay Commissions for anyone who reads this!! But for me to accept your commission, you have to please please please follow these simple steps....

1. Fill out the forum (located at the bottom) and PM it to me.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to let ya'll know I'll be opening up another DA here soon, showing off professional cosplay me and my other peaches will do. Oh? Don't know what we're talking about? Then let's play a game!

I spy something..... pink!

So over the last couple days I've been feeling the need to have a really good OC Nazi yaoi rp. Something really deep and dark and full of evil little kinks like bondage and S&M and what not. Anyone interested? Please? I give good rp!!

I got FEATURED in something!!

Holy wack unlyrical lyrics Andre!

So I come onto DA to check my messages and there's a comment. Yay, I love comments, and it says I've been featured. On what? SO!! I look.

There's a new news article called Newest Discoveries Project and my Alitmit OS Wallpapers (the purple one) got featured!

Seriously, I'm shocked. I mean, really shocked! =3 I'm loved!! I really am!!

So I'm finally getting my shoulder fixed

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 17, 2008, 3:00 PM
So I finally getting my shoulder fixed. It's what got me discharged out of the Air Force, mind you. Anyway, last October I finally had it looked at after a year and today I had my MRI to see what was going on.

Which was painful as HELL!!

I had about 9 or 10 injections done to get the dye into the shoulder and it hurt so fucking much. I was trying not to show it, but sometimes you can't help it. After about an hour and a half of something that should have taken thirty minutes, I finally got into the MRI and layed there for a good hour to have the pictures taken.

As some may know, an MRI isn't painful. But the injections I had to have were. Apparently my shoulder is so screwed up that he couldn't do it the normal way, had to resort back to an older way, and still couldn't do it.

So here I am, sitting and waiting for the results. I hope they say I DON'T need surgery...

Headed out
