I logged in yesterday to a couple thousand notifications and a Daily Deviation!  I can't thank you guys enough - all of your comments, faves, and support really mean a lot to me.  I'm doing my best to respond to everyone, but it's been a little overwhelming, so it may take a couple days (:

Guild Wars 2 - All this is mine by elliria

I've been cosplaying for several years now, but my Guild Wars 2 costume is my baby - I'm a dedicated fan of the first game, but didn't want to cosplay from it until I had the skills to do it justice.  This was my project for the better part of a year, and it was a huge learning experience (I can't tell you how many times I scrapped pieces of it that weren't working out!).  It's your responses that make it seem really worthwhile to me, and I'm glad that I can share my love for this game to a wider audience.

I'll try to not turn this into an Oscar acceptance speech, but I want to thank Darkain Multimedia for showcasing the costume so beautifully.  And, of course, Saiyuki-15 for the suggestion and Pullingcandy for the feature.

I tend to save DA for finished products, but if you'd like to follow more of my progress, convention schedule, or day-to-day cosplay musings, please follow me on Facebook or Tumblr.  I have a long list of future costumes and I'm already working on a new one, so there's no end in sight for me ^^

I finally had a chance to log in and catch up with Fanime stuff. It was great to talk to you just before the fabric paint and dye panel. And congrats on the DD. That's very exciting! ^^
