Hi guys! :wave:

I apologize for the inactivity. After 3 intensive summer classes, I only had a short period of relaxation before getting summer jobs. I'm working at the same place I did my internship last year, and I'm teaching little children Glass Painting and running the Reading Club again. :aww: It's really fun so far~ Exhausting, but a lot of fun. The children are so adorable, I teach kids from ages 3 -10.


As most of you already know, I'm now engaged to Strifehart :blushes:

I'd just like to share a couple more pictures~

The lovely ring :heart:



As I mentioned in my latest deviation, Rinoa Heartilly by lonelymiracle, I finally finished my Rinoa cosplay~ It's way too hot and humid outside lately so it's not a good idea to have a photoshoot in the nice outdoor location we found. My friends and I are just waiting for the weather to get better, but we might end up having a shoot indoors, I don't know~ :shrug:

So here are the preview pics! :la:

The duster and skirt are now shorter, and I made her Pinwheel weapon~

I worked on the Pinwheel for about a month, little by little. It's made out of 1.5 mm plastic sheet, covered with silver paper, then painted with acrylic. It's attached to my arm warmers with black elastic band and velcro.

The back of my duster. I re-did the wings. I didn't want to risk ruining it with paint, so I appliqued it~

Sans weapon. I added the metal parts/buckles on the boots too.

You can find the older pics here for comparison:…



Anyway!~ I just want to mention my not-so baby bro, :icongreenpuffle:. His work is wonderful, but they don't get much love. Please check out his page and fave/comment if you like something!

Another summer job I got is painting murals for kid's play areas so I'll post some pics of those! :D I'm quite exited to be offered this job, I've never painted at such a large scale before and painting is one of my favorite things to do. :heart: So that's all for now~ Thank you very much again to all who commented and faved my recent deviations, I really appreciate it and I hope to post more stuff soon~

Since I wouldn't have been able to do some birthday muro drawings, I got two extra drawing copies, so...
Believe it or not, two birthday muro drawing copies I made, of chibi Haruhi Suzumiya and Mikuru Asahina wishing you one, so, wishes 'n' luck!
