Backing off

Day one of Ohayocon has not gone as planned.  Partially due to my procrastination. I managed to forget that I need to work on the bangs for both wigs I was planning to use. I tried to get one in shape today, but it didn’t work. That got me thinking. Why am I in such…

Competition Contemplation

I’ve been seriously thinking of entering a couple of competitions this year.
