I'm back! Far sooner than expected and, if you know about my situation from my last journal, you can likely guess why.


Seriously, 3 days before being kicked out, I got a call for an interview and today I went in for said interview. It only lasted about 10ish minutes. But I walked out with the job. So going from not getting a SINGLE callback for the past 4+ months (not even from fast food places) I managed to get through a normally long process in under 48 hours.

Now I have no real way to celebrate this properly. Nor do I have a way to properly thank everyone for the encouraging words they've given me both here and irl. The only thing I can offer is that I start to share some cosplay progress photos from my secret cosplay once I get settled in at the new job.

Again, thanks to everyone for the support! You guys and gals are all the absolute best.

Hi there! I know you don't use this account anymore and that's cool but by chance you come on here sometime soon, do you have a tumblr account? I came across you my first Anime North in 2012 and again in 2013 and I think I yelled at you something about feels? Whatever. Anyways, you've been the topic of conversation in my cosplay group several times and I was just hoping I could follow something of yours that is updated more often. Tumblr is what I use more often but like maybe you have a facebook page or something? I don't know. Get back to me whenever. I check this account every once in a while.

Hey! you were Anime North right? I was the girl in the blonde wig who asked you to pose as dead Maes hughes! You were my favourite cosplayer!
Dio773 Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think the best part of this is you are one of the few people to come up to me that I remember just because you had said that. I'm glad I could be your favourite. And to be completely honest, you we're probably my favourite person to ask for my photo this year, because there is always one or two people who stand out each year.
KnightXTee Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Oh wow! I'm so glad you remember me! When I posted you pic on tumblr, and said how you died for me, one of your deviantart fans sent me here, I'm glad I was able to find you!
Dio773 Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well I'm happy to hear that people recognize me. xD
It's a bit surreal to hear that people know it's me that fast, but since I don't use Tumblr, I never know when I show up on there. Which, according to some people, happens a lot. :/

And of course I remember you. :P It's way easier to remember people who ask specifics of me. For example, I remember a girl who asked if I was a Homunculus my first year as Hughes. :P

Hey there! Would it be okay if I posted some pics of your Hughes cosplay and a link to the voting page on Tumblr? I think it would help spread the word. :)
