I just hit 100k views... Thank you for all your support over the years.
My cosplay career is slowly coming to an end as commissions/etsy becomes more and MORE of a thing that is taking my free time. I feel I accomplished MOST of what I wanted to when I started this hobby 12 years ago. While there are a few things left undone, goals morphed and some entirely changed... I dont feel like I left much on the table. So in that sense, I am ok with it coming to this point.
I am also 40 years old now... I want happiness for my children and peace in my life. I miss the shoots and competing a lot... but the headache of prepping and making it all just isnt worth it for me at this point.
I still miss the people in the hobby. While many say its full of drama... I honestly have not had many problems with it. 1 instance in 12 years, which I was able to shut down once I kept my ear to the ground long enough and kept quiet. But I still want to keep in touch with everyone, so if any of you are in Orlando or happen to be at Disney World, hit me up! I may do some traveling in the next year or 2. Hopefully it happens sooner than later.
anyway... dont be a stranger
