New Zelda Armor by Goraiou
New Zelda Armor
I want to give my costume a full makeover, so that means new pauldrons. As you can see, they're going to be made completely out of EVA foam. I'm also posting my progress on Youtube, so when I'm done with the video, I'll post a link to it.

UPDATE! As I promised:

Here in 2015, I've learned two major things:

1. I can't depend on other people just so I can do stuff.

2. Sometimes, you have to lie in order to get what you want.

Sure, it's not cool to lie, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

I'm working on Sheeda's gloves, and they're really giving me hell. I used the same method for Lucina's gloves, and they're still kicking my ass. Maybe I'm just losing my touch......I'm just feeling really stressed about how something so easy can become so hard again, along with everything else.

Ganondorf Amiibo by Goraiou
Ganondorf Amiibo
Now I can say that I'm finished with the amiibo collection of Zelda characters. I just got Ganondorf in the mail today, and he looks very evil and regal at the same time.

Finished Crown 2.0 by Goraiou
Finished Crown 2.0
This crown has been holding up really well. Since I don't have any cons to go to for the rest of the year, I might as well fix this costume up to make it look pretty and stable. But anyway, the first crown I had was very bendy, and the clay pieces were falling apart. This time, I used a thicker wire, covered it in craft foam, and the diamonds were cast from Smooth On 300. That stuff hardens quickly. The central piece was cast from epoxy resin last fall, so that somehow stays. I don't know why I didn't do this in the first place. Oh, and you won't see me wearing this until I get the new wig. I just feel that it would look better that way.

The crown is for Warrior Zelda from Hyrule Warriors.

Hello and welcome to my page. I'm Calista (Callie works too). I live in Chicago, and I graduated from Loyola University, with a major in English. I like, anime, video games, and cosplay. Also, story-writing, traveling, women and photography. Until I can find a real full-time job, I will be doing more cosplay-related things. As of now, I'm hunting for a full-time job, and I also graduated from grad School with a degree in Secondary Education. As for the future, I don't know what's in store for me. Hopefully, it's something good. But for now, I'm a townie.

It's good to see you again! Thank you! I hope you had fun at Acen this past year. Sadly, I won't be at Anime Midwest, but I plan to be at Chicago Comic Con and maybe Con Alt Delete.

I know I won't be able to go to Chicago Comic Con but there might be a possibility of me going to Con Alt Delete. It all depends on my schooling. And if I'm not there, my table partner is trying for a table so he will be.

for me, it depends on my amount of money (finding work), and if I can finish Christmas shopping in time for it. If I do go to this, I'm going to bring some revealing costumes.
