Wow... I cannot believe 2011 is over already. This year passed by so fast. The fact that tonight's New Year's Eve feels pretty much surreal to me. A Happy New Year
to all of you though! I hope you'll be able to achieve your aims and to fulfill your desires! ♥♥♥
My past year was filled with many ups and downs: On the one hand I grew apart of some people and messed up some of my exams at university, I gave up huge parts of my private life to impress my employer and I was pursued by bad luck when it came to ordering materials and wigs for cosplay online...
On the other hand I got in touch with the people I grew apart with again and did well at university. I found new friends from all over the world, I discovered Tumblr
, I got into comics, I finished nine lovely costumes, I attended my first convention abroad, I got featured in a cosplay calendar, I got an incredibly huge amount of positive feedback and received even lovely messages from one of DC
's writers and one of DC
All things considered it sounds like I had a good year, doesn't it?
As I already mentioned I finished nine costumes this year. That is no exceptionally huge number - keeping the fact in mind that I also have my studies and an internship to concentrate on I'm happy though.
Some of my costumes have minor flaws - I'm not happy with Shiemi
's and Wendy
's wigs for example and I could have done better on some parts of my Batgirl
and Miss Martian
stealth outfit too, but well... Generally speaking I'm content with the costumes I accomplished this year.
Furthermore being a cosplayer would be really boring if I had nothing to get better at, right?
Here's a list of all costumes I finished in 2011...Costumes of 2011 - Starting at the upper left of the picture and ending at the lower right... Miss Martian

And what do my New Year's Cosplay Resolutions
In 2012 I want to focus on improving my crafting and wig-styling skills. It is my aim to work with materials I have never worked with before. I will also try to show different facial expressions and dynamic poses in my pictures.In case that you want to give me advice, tips and/or constructive criticism on my work of 2011 feel free to leave me a comment! I really appreciate it!
