So.... yeah.... I realized much too late that I haven't updated my deviantart in AGES. The last journal was from Glass City Con. Which was in like August. @.@ A lot of things have happened since them, some of which you guys will get to see soon once I start uploading things here again.

This journal's gonna be a bit long, so bear with me.
2015 was a very hectic and dramatic year for me. Once it got closer to con season, I lost all motivation to work on things after having to deal with certain people. I couldn't take it so I just kind of shut down. I'm still lacking some motivation, but things are getting better. I've won a couple more awards in skits, so my hopes of being a performance judge may come true in the near futures. All of my panels have went swimmingly, surprisingly. The skits were lacking much more than I wanted, up until Ikasucon anyway. Ikasucon was like a jolt for me; it woke me up. We won Best Journeyman, and we even made people cry. (I was bawling on stage, but you know.) Then came Midoricon, which was one hell of a bender. But, I did have fun hanging out with a couple people, so that made it kinda worth it. Though, the following cons after that really made it better for me. Kabochacon was the first time in over a year and a half that I won a cosplay award, and Best in Show at that. TAG Fest this past December was fantastic, and I actually had a really good time. It was fun and enjoyable, and I'm hoping that that feeling carries on into Ohayocon next week. 
It's weird though, because this Ohayocon isn't going to have any huge costumes, really. I'm making Yuki Cross's formal dress from Vampire Knight, which really isn't all that difficult compared to making Pyrrha. So, I have a little hope. My circle of friends is starting to change a bit, in a good way, and I have more options and things I can do, in terms of photoshoots, rooming situations, and doing cosplays and skits. It's kind of a new start, one that I'm very grateful for.
So, with that being said, I will be at Ohayocon. I'll be hosting several panels, doing a skit, and running a photoshoot for the first time in my life. I'm uber nervous, but I'm really excited. I've already got my mind set on making sure it runs smoothly. And, no one is going to try and bulldoze me over. I'm determined not to let anyone run all over me anymore. I'm gonna take a stand, stand up for myself. Because, even if I don't see myself as something to be proud of, I know my friends think differently, and it's time to start listening to them.

So... yeah. ^^ I'm gonna end this journal with a questionnaire taken from :iconredfuzzypants:, to show how old I feel, lol. 

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    5 years. yeah. 5. Jesus.

  2. What does your username mean?

    It's based on the saying "to the moon and back." I wanted something space like, but I never really liked the moon. I've always loved the stars, so I went with that instead. So, there you have it. Tothestarsandback. xp

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    shy, nerdy, friendly (??) I guess this works?

  4. Are you left or right handed?


  5. What was your first deviation?

    I actually don't have my first deviations any more. The person who originally got me into cosplaying, and who I went to cons with, and I had a huge falling out, so I deleted/trashed all of the original pictures we had.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?


  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    drawing in general. I can't draw a straight line to save my life. And, I mean that. I really do.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    Tifa Stamp by HatakeHinata   All the Final Fantasy 7 things....

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

     Generally, cosplay, because I love seeing what other people can create.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    Oh geez. I don't really have a favorite... But if I had to choose one.... I'd pick.. :iconsparx-the-fox: She was one of the first people here on DA I talked to and watched, and I still love looking through all her stuff.  Moltres by Sparx-the-Fox Fire Emblem Awakening: Robin by Sparx-the-Fox  Attack on Titan: Miss Mallo Photography by Sparx-the-Fox

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?  Uhm.... I have no idea... I really don't talk to many people on here anymore...

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?  I've had a few comments on here, especially regarding my Raven and Aelita cosplays that really make me so giddy and want to bring those costumes back out. They give me that initial joy I used to feel a lot more when I first started cosplaying.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?  Preferably fabric, needles, and thread. I've done a little prop work and armor work, but basic fabric is my forte, for sure.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?  Usually, my room or my house. I need a lot of space, so now, I typically take over our dining room table here at college.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?  Hm... I think my favorite memory.. Would have to be encompassed in this picture. This was a near perfect con, perfect group of friends, and I had a lot of fun being there.  All That Remains [Ikasucon] by tothestarsandback
