Hi everyone!

At the moment I'm busy with an illustration job and after that I will be busy with some other things. Amongst them are preparing for some coming fairs and conventions (in the Netherlands)! So here's an update of the list of where I'll be the coming months:

Imaginarium Festival (Fantasy festival), August 23, Vijversburg (Friesland),
This is a small fantasy festival in the North of the Netherlands and I'll be there mainly with fantasy related art.

Tomofair (Japan-themed fair), October 4, Nijmegen,
This is a fair/market organised by the people of Tomocon. Tickets cost only 2,50!
I hope to create more anime art, charms and also some lolita/fairy kei designs for this day :).

MGC Experience , November 1, Utrecht,
This is a small one-day event, and I will also bring some anime-stuff with me to MGC of course!

Other events I'll attend (not as an artist):
- Cosplay Gala, October 11, Meppel,
As an active member of B.A.G.G.E.R., the anime club of the north of the Netherlands, I help organizing this event but I'm also planning to cosplay and hopefully I can join the contest as well (which would be a first ^^).

Lately I've been getting more into Japanese street fashion styles and cosplay.
Mainly Elegant Gothic/ Classic and Sweet Lolita. I've known about it since a while, because I have a good friend who wore it for some time, that was about 3 years ago I think. But I didn't have the time nor money nor a sewing machine to make some myself but I do now. Well I still don't have a lot of money but just a tiny bit and I wanted to try it out after I saw another friend wearing it at her birthday (it was soooo cute). So I've been sewing things the last months and I've started a blog about my creations and stuff here
Next to that I've finished a border print and ordered fabric with it, which I hope will arrive soon so I can create a dress designed by myself. And I'm planning to create even more prints, because it is a lot of fun!
Anyway, I sort of am climbing back into the anime-scene here, we've attended animecon which was cool and I've already booked a (cheaper) apartment for next year so hope to attend the full 3 days then X3 yay. 
I know, even when I'm 26, I still like anime a lot and so it makes me happy I can do things with other people and make new friends that kinda love the same things <3 it's really great!
