There's a line in my userinfo (in fact, it's pretty much my whole userinfo) that reads "So, occasionally, and I mean very
occasionally, I actually get around to doing things." I have to-do lists that go back years
. Mostly not filled with stuff that is, y'know, important
in the RL sense, but still. Years.
I mention this by way of explaining why it feels like so much of an achievement that I have finally signed up for a cosplay.com account
. Actually, that's not the achievement - the achievement is the part where I'm doing something with it, like finally getting around to sorting through the last 4-5 years worth of con photos and photoshoots and deciding what's worth uploading. A lot of those events had already been halfway-sorted for various livejournal posts
(or by my sister, who is a lot more organised about updating her deviantart and flickr accounts) - but you can probably imagine why I've had so much trouble even making myself think about the job without doing the mental equivalent of curling up in a foetal position on the floor somewhere. Well, no longer!
So far, I've got as far as doing FFVII Yuffie
(two cons, two photoshoots), KH2/AC Yuffie
(four cons), River
(three costume balls, one con), Hiei
(two cons), and most of Millia
(two cons, one epic trip to Japan, and two photoshoots which I'm still in the middle of sorting through). Still to go: the Balldress!Millia, Joshua, Goth-loli!Joshua, Syaoran, and both Kys. So, plenty left to go yet, but to be hovering somewhere around the halfway point doesn't feel half bad.
In the hope that this is the start of some kind of trend, I present below a shortlist of some other items that I
really seriously honestly hopefully
intend to get around to doing sometime in the near future. And if I don't, well, you are all completely within your rights to nag me about them. (Not to mention probably half a dozen other things I haven't even remembered just at the moment.)( Other websites needing updating, and a couple of old pieces of CLAMP and Guilty Gear fic that are still getting written, I *swear*! )
