... and another year is drawing to an end. Wow. I cannot believe 2012 is almost over. Time does surely go by fast, doesn't it?


I think December 31st is a good point in time to properly reflect about oneself. To me 2012 was a year with ups and downs. Looking back there is a handful of events which made and still make me incredibly sad.
First of all the loss of very important friend who I lost due to my own reckless- and selfishness. I also grew further apart from other people who are really important to me. Coping with the fact that there's basically nothing I can do about it gave and still gives me a really hard time. I also regret spending way too much time alone at home.

I should also try to think about the positive aspects of 2012, shouldn't I?
In 2012 I finished my first long-term internship. I started my 5th semester at university in which I did exceptionally well and in which I received more good grades than I had expected.
I was also able to visit my first convention in the UK - Kapow! Comic Convention - which was a blast. I met many writers and artists of some of my favourite comics personally. I got a couple of comicbooks signed, gosh, a picture of my costume even made it into an issue of Journey Into Mystery!
Besides that I got invited to a convention in Denmark for the first time, was allowed to judge the cosplay competition and met many old and new friends there!
I met truly inspiring personalities like Yaya Han and some of my favourite actors from Game of Thrones, like Jason Momoa, Iain Glen and Finn Jones. I made it to another amazing convention in the UK... A good friend of mine gave birth to a lovely daughter... and moreover my friends and my family are all healthy and alright. Maybe 2012 wasn't as as up-and-down as I thought..?
Anyway, I should be grateful for what I have. I'm looking forward to 2013 alredy! No matter how many difficulties I'll have to have - I'll definitely make the best out of it! I hope you do too!


Here's a list of all costumes I finished in 2012...
Costumes of 2012 - Starting at the upper left of the picture and ending on the lower right...
:bulletyellow: The Spoiler from DC's Detective Comics
:bulletorange: Ion Fortuna from Trinity Blood
:bulletred: Catwoman from DC's Catwoman
:bulletpurple: Robin from DC's Batman
:bulletblue: Leah of Hel from Marvel's Journey Into Mystery
:bulletgreen: Wonder Girl from DC's Young Justice: Invastion

:bulletred: Korra from The Legend of Korra
:bulletpurple: Belle from Disney's The Beauty and the Beast
:bulletblue: Princess Leia from Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

And what do my New Year's Cosplay Resolutions look like?
In 2013 I want to get out of my artistic comfort zone. I'm looking for challenges. I will try to make bigger and more difficult costumes than I have done so far. I also want to focus on improving my prop-making and wig-styling skills. And I want to organize interesting and unconventional photoshootings!

In case that you want to give me advice, tips and/or constructive criticism on my work of 2012 feel free to leave me a comment! I really appreciate it!

Sina, I only just learned of you yesterday when I came across that wonderful Miss Martian picture of yours, but reading your words above and seeing your pictures, I already think you're a rather special person and a treasure to the cosplayer community. I'm sorry to hear of you losing a friendship - I had that once too and still regret it - but I hope you'll have many wonderful experiences in 2013 and beyond, and as a fellow deviant I send you my love and regards.

Your cosplays are unique. Your character choices are literally a who's who. Your character choices are unique because a lot of them aren't really done.
