Winter is Coming

At least that feels like an appropriate line considering I'm in Arizona right now and last week I was outside, comfortably, in a tank top.  It finally rained all night I can at least hope for an icy Christmas. 

 Last month flew by. November November, what the hell happened to November? I attended to the Tucson Comic Con at the beginning of the month and brought some pics from my shoot with Larry Alan
After the convention, I came back to Phoenix for about a week and got to shoot with Larry again for a project called The Fun Book.  I went through a billion outfits .. well, not quite outfits - here is a behind the scenes:
We shot for a few hours.  The book includes a bunch of different girls (and I think 1 or 2 dudes) and alsoo has cosplayer Jessica Nigri, model Tara Hitchinson, features clothing by ModifiedMinds.  You can order a copy here :
Very shortly after our shoot it was time for more traveling.  I am working on a costume with Kip from Kipsworld so I spent an entire week in San Diego working on the armored pieces.
Then came The Long Beach Comic Con, which I have been wanting to go to since it's inception 5 years ago.  I had so much fun at that convention! First of all, Kip helped me build a new banner stand so now I have my banner and 6-10 other pics that I can hang from it to display.  Since I had my new Dr. Mrs. The Monarch prints I hung them and ran around all weekend in the cosplay. 

Prints available w/FREE SHIPPING through the 25th at my Store

I had a lot of new visitors, got served wine all day Saturday (thanks guys!- it made for a really fun and interesting day/night) and then on Sunday I hopped around talking to everyone and hanging out with guests.  I ran into some friends like Phil LaMarr,

Dean Haglund (From X-Files-- REMEMBER!?- He's a super cool guy), Peter Steigerwald of Aspen Comics
 and I got to meet Motherfuckin Lance Henrikson!
There were many more people that I got to meet and got to visit with during the weekend. I walked so much my feet were aching but because of my constant running around, I snagged a cool collaboration type project that I'll be a part of with an incredible artist.  More info on that later.
From the Long Beach comic con., it was back to San Diego to work more on the armor, then back to Phoenix  for Thanksgiving and into December.  At the beginning of the month I was asked to introduce some films and do a red carpet/media walk at the Filmstock Film Festival.  I introduced with actor Shane Dean, got to watch some good indy films, watch the acting competition and see local actors. ModifiedMinds and myself made 2 dresses for the festival and I helped to design the blue dress :)

 After the festival,  I had the lovely Miss Toni Darling to hang out with for a week.

Next up, was a new pin-up shoot.  I have 2 new outfits- one should be up next week :) Here is a little sneak-
Tonight- I am going over to Amanda's  so that we can tape a drunken costuming/cosplay/makeup tutorial.  Larry Alan MAY be on photography duty..but seeing as it's his BIRTHDAY-- there may be more shenanigans for us to all worry about.  There will be video evidence so don't worry about missing out on too much. 
Next up for me is the Albuquerque Comic Con January 10-12th and then the Amazing Arizona Comic Con January 24th-26th.  I'm crossing my fingers because I may have a movie out by that time too! I can't wait to announce which one it is :)
February is pilot season, so after the January conventions I may be heading to LA to audition audition audition.  I only have a month because in March I'll be script supervising a web series.  All month.  Busy Busy..but we all know that's how I like it.  
I'm also going to be working on a science/tech blog to go along with video recaps I'll be doing so my blog will change a little bit.  I'm still going to be posting about what's going on in my life, with my career and tell you where you can see me and get my prints, but once a week we're going to go a bit more intellectual. 
It's always a ride when I'm involved.  Enjoy it.  ;p
