Wow! I can't believe it! A million pageviews XD It's amazing to have seen the numbers climb this high, astounding really, considering I'm pretty mediocre!
I am in no way shape or form the best cosplayer. Nor am I in the "top tier" or even in the "above average section". I'm just average, if that. I'm still learning how to do this stuff. I'm terrible at sewing, and I get a lot of help, but I'm trying to improve. I get frustrated and use a lot of glue gunning, and I cheat and pin on buttons instead of making button holes XD My armor, props and accessories are pretty sad too. I never formulate a plan for what I'm making, and i can't follow patterns. I usually just make stuff up as I go and hope it all works... so i often end up missing parts of a costume or screwing it up entirely! My wigs are the only thing I'm decent at. But even then, I get very sloppy and I can't style long wigs at all! My poses and facial expressions are often lacking. I have a hard time making smiles look genuine unless they are, and i can't look very angry unless I am XD Nevertheless, I'm still learning, and still trying to improve on my cosplay. So thank you for supporting me, despite all this, and encouraging me to try harder on each new costume I attempt!
Thank you everyone, for your continued support on all fronts. I just recently thought back to how I was when i first started here on DA and I've changed a lot, physically, emotionally and mentally. And I'm proud of these changes. My Mom was right when she said to me 4 years ago that: "everything will always turn out for the best". I'm very happy. I've been working to improve myself physically, emotionally and mentally; I've been taking in criticism as something to grow by. I have more bad habits and moods than I can count! But, little by little, I'm improving. And my life has improved as a result! I've moved into my own apartment, I'm another year closer to graduating from University, I'm on my way to becoming the man I've always been, my friends are more supportive and loving than i could ever hope for and I asked the girl of my dreams to marry me, and she said yes
Anyway, that was my sad attempt at a thoughtful review of my life XD
I can't say this enough but thank you!!!!
