Here I'll write a little report of my life and works stats.
I spent three lovely days of January to my friend's house after having celebrated the New Year's Eve, drunk, eaten, played and got so much fun with them.
In February I had the chance to make a Pris Stratton cospaly (Blade Runner) photo set (you can see it here www.cosplay.com/costume/449824… thanks to my kind friend Fabiohazard fabiohazard.deviantart.com/
In March I graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome getting 110/110, the highest mark I worked a lot for my thesis about the painter Morris Graves, one of my favourite artists ever and been fully satisfied about everything I did.
I could also make a Coraline cosplay, another character I love and been really lucky to partecipate to the convention, considering that I had to study for my thesis and shouldn't go there xD here my Coraline cosplay <3 www.cosplay.com/costume/453102…
Nevermind, I spent April in total relax, as my first month of vacation from three years courses of Academy, and I could complete my Leeloo Dallas cosplay that I enjoyed wearing at Romics (here it is www.cosplay.com/costume/450093… in May took some days at another con in Naples, Comicon where I could show my Merle cosplay from the Vision of Escaflowne (here you can find it www.cosplay.com/costume/454331….
Between a cosplay and another I had enough time to work on some paintings, thing that happens rarely or just when I have e very cool idea. I'm going to upload some more artworks soon ^w^
At the end of May I travelled to Istanbul with my family and had such a great time, also visited the asiatic side of the city!! Now I can say I've been in asia too LOL (some picture showing it here and still have to upload some more pics www.picturesocial.com/photo/ou….
In June I worked as a promoter for the Centrale del Latte of Rome which is an Italian dairy based in Rome, then as a secretary in a medical studio and still working there, in July I went to te beautiful Rimini for a summer con, Rimini comics, where I could meet my lovely friends from the northern Italy again(I love them <3), wear an original costume I made for the occasion and yet another chance to have a photoshoot. This time I created something mixing different elements from some ancient and tribal cultures, such as the native American, Indian and Celtic ones, painting my skin with many bright colours and decorating my hair and arms with feathers, shells, little pieces of wood and other stuff I loved to add, getting a different and awesome look everytime. That was so much fun (here the link to the gallery where I collected many photosets www.picturesocial.com/photo/al… ).
In August I travelled and stayed in Morocco for 15 days, that was so hot! But I could manage the high temperature by covering well my head with fabric, that is also very common there. I published only one photo, and many others are still waiting to be put in my online gallery :/ here you can see it www.picturesocial.com/photo/in…
In september I started working on other paintings and on some other cosplays, this time some really easy, like Eileen Galvin's pink shirt, which only had to be finished because I started to paint it before the summer but couldn't work continuously so had to work on it many times and for few time. Also, took part in a Silent hill Shattered Memories photoshoot thanks to my friend Simone (rush90.deviantart.com/) here is the photoset -> www.cosplay.com/costume/464139… who helped me also in realizing another dream set from Dino Crisis 2 in the forest as you can find here www.cosplay.com/costume/458397….
In October I took part in two conventions, one was Romics where I showed my Vincent Malloy cosplay from tim Burton's Vincent 1982 short movie (here my cosplay www.cosplay.com/costume/465332… and here the wonderful movie www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD8uQz… and this picture by Fabiohazard was recently showcased on dA( wo hooo!) fabiohazard.deviantart.com/art… <3
Also Eileen cosplay from Silent hill 4 (here the link www.cosplay.com/costume/465742… and the other was Lucca comics and games, where I finally met a wonderful group of girls I had the pleasure to invite for a Rule of Rose group, beautiful survival horror game i played some years ago and which fell in love with. This time we had a great time, I met other three girls I used to chat only on the internet and was happy to make some new friends and see some old ones. Here you can see our group www.cosplay.com/costume/195887… One was Chiara, the Eleanor of our group kiara-valentine.deviantart.com…, then Giulia, our Wendy vegliaserena.deviantart.com/ and Martina, our Meg. It was such a pleasure to have Gaia as Diana meryl-sama.deviantart.com/. I also cosplayed Sally from Nightmare before Christmas again this time with a better make up and accessory as you can see here www.cosplay.com/costume/332457…
About the Rule of Rose cosplay group, we were five and all felt very happy for having made the the game come to life, we enjoyed each other and felt like we made our dream come true. That's what I still feel. Plus another great news came all of a sudden. Yoshiro Kimura, the creator of Rule of Rose noticed our cosplays and wrote on twitter, appreciatin and commenting our work! here his tweet -> twitter.com/yoshiro_kimura/sta… that was incredible for all of us <3 We retweeted him back ^^
Now it's Dicember and Christmas is about to come.. and I still have many things to do and planning soon, who knows wat the future brings me, but I received another wonderful news, as some friends of mine are looking forward to find me some stuff for future cosplays I had to put apart because of their difficulty. Also, some important notices about a very serious work I'd do if I were lucky enough..let's hope so, I'm strong and have will, I like to challenge myself.
That's almost all for now, I believe.
Oh and just because it "has to be done", I wish you to spend a great Christmas time and a wonderful New Year's Eve!
