I update my facebook with stuff more regularly: I-Artemis-I

Hi my name is Natalie. I'm from the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I started cosplaying late 2011. I love making weapons out of wood, and hate sewing, so any volunteers to be my sewing slave will be appreciated (and possibly rewarded with weapons haha). I'm still pretty new at it, but am getting better, and certainly more ambitious with each project.
Interests

Gold Coast Nova?

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 7:57 PM
Out of duty to do a journal rather than actually having the will to do one.

GCNova was last weekend.  I'm stuffed!  Saturday I did Ty Lee (ember island players version) with 4 friends.  Hardly anyone recognised me sadly (even though its really just normal ty lee with a tutu instead of skirt thingy).  Even other avatar cosplayer who i greeted when we walked past just kind of kept walking.  Don't know if that reflects on their lack of bother, lack of etiquette or lack of avatar knowledge.  But the cosplay comp made up for them anyway :D  Lucy (our Katara) had written an awesome skit that was so stupidly funny, it went down pretty well with the audience :D  Pretty good with the judges too, I guess, since we won best group in the daily comp. Doing an ember island player group was one of my dream groups, so I'm so happy i got to do it with my friends, and have a truckload of fun.
Sunday I wore Ma Chao again (Dynasty Warriors 7), since hardly anyone got to see him at Brisbane Supanova (due to heat, competition and general exhaustion).  I made 5 extra weapons for it, because I'm a bit obsessed with making weapons, and DW has some crackers.  I did a skit in the daily comp, just sparring with the weapons (aka dying while swinging them madly), and somehow won the best cosplay in advanced :D Wow i died from heat and heavy costume.  My shoulders and forehead still hurt, two days later.
So great meeting lots of cosplayers at GCNova :D  And seeing Tess and Nai win the GC round of MNCC with stunning costumes. OMG they were sooooo pretty.  Muchos touchies.

Now I have to get onto Sydney Supanova costumes, and WCS costume :D scary!  I've already started a bit on the weapons (because of course there are weapons).  And just need to finalise my sydnova choices (looking like either Adult Toph or Kya (from Korra - depending on how much time i have), and Fitz from Robin Hobb's books (probably from the cover of the new book coming out).  Brisnova plans are still incredibly loose at the moment.  At the moment thinking of doing a Final Fantasy X group, and doing Auron, because I will look nothing like him, but he's my fav :D  and big weapon, of course :D

Wow, no joke, you're like the fifth Australian who makes sweet props of this quality. What is your country hiding ? What's the secret ?

haha thanks.  really?  I don't know that many cosplayers, so maybe 2 other people that make awesome props here?  Maybe we just like sweating our butts off making things

haha those weren't the ones I was thinking of...I've never even seen those people before...they look more like prop-builders than cosplayers, so maybe thats why.  damn good stuff though. The two i was thinking of are primarily cosplayers...we have less time to make tonnes of props because of those pesky costumes.  but :iconamenokitarou: and :iconstorm1822: are the two i consider pretty good that i've come across.  ameno kitarou's brotherhood sword from ffx especially :O

OK I'll let you join the sword sanctuary, but I must warn you a lot of your swords exceed the coolness restrictions.
