Wow it's been a while since i last updated the journal and even then it was a Meme. But there really hasn't been anything worth updating on.

Christmas and new year as come and gone and i had a good end to last year, September i started a new job after 6 years in the my previous one and i couldn't be happier.
 Ok some days are a little hard and a struggle but with the team i work with we get through it. Everyone in my department is lovely and we have all become really close.

 September was also the month we got our new Kittens. Willow and Milly, after about 2 years since we lost our last cat, the house feels amazing again having pets and animals running round :D

September was a busy month as I did attend AL-con, But it was a while now and carn't remeber alot about it but all i know is i won't be going back. Its wasn't one of the best cons i have been too. I had alot of personal problems go on that weekend and it almost made me not want to cosplay anymore.
 I did have some good points but for me it didn't feel like a con for me there was no con atmosphere.

J-con was good event local cheap and i took my brother along. Not a bad event and i actually felt better being there for 1 day then i did for the full weekend at AL-con. 

 I saw the new year in with some great friends some I hadn't seen for a while so was nice to catch up with them and find out what they were doing.

In February it was  my 30th Birthday didn't do anything for it really, had cake and that was enough for me XD Oh and i also brought myself an Xbox1. ready for the last Naruto Ninja storm game :(

Between that and now not alot has happened, apart from last weekend when I attended my first Cosplay event of 2015! and where I de-buted my first new Cosplay.

So my new cosplay was War Sakura (as you might have seen from a few photos I have posted on here.) I decided to go ahead and do war Sakura as I thought it would be quick and easy.. But it was far from it. It didn't help I didn't start it till about a week before the event and i was doing 2 at the same time due to my sister wanting one as she plans to join me and Aerblade as Ino at a con later in the year.
 But thanks to my mums held i manged to get it to a wearable state and was able to wear it to go along with :iconaerblade:'s Rock lee cosplay. And i couldn't have been happier, i was Cosplaying Sakura agai and had a Rock Lee with me :D 
 All I have to add to mine now are the front pockets and some top stitching, then that will be one cosplay done for Kitacon at the end of July.

The event itself wasn't really what I was expecting, I knew it would be syfy themed,But was expecting some anime things to be there but there was very little anime stuff. Usually syfy, anime, and TV comes under one thing at these day events but It really was aimed at Dr Who, Game of Thrones, and other syfy fans. As they had the actors from both series there doing signings etc.
 
 But I had a good time, met up with some other cosplayers and it was lovely seeing families there with their kids dressed up. It was nice to have the event in my home town, and by going to it and buying a ticket I have supported the company which means hopefully they will improve it for next year!

One good thing about the event, it re-lit my love for cosplay and really put me in the right mood to get on with some new cosplays. :iconaerblade: and i have all ready got a few cosplays planed that we are wanting to do together, and have been brain storming them.
 We have quite a few photo ideas and im just itching to get my cosplays started so they are all ready for Kitacon (if not a event before)

Not sure what event I will attending next cosplay wise, Kitacon is at the end of July but im really wanting to cosplay before then.
 There is Chibi-Ame that is again being held in Nottingham, but the tickets have all sold out for that, but with it being local I may get into cosplay and go and see friends there and act like im at the event, it just means I won't be able to go to the parties at night but I do get to save money by not having to get a hotel room and get to sleep in my own bed :3

Might look into some more local-ish cons in the coming months but for now i think i will concentrate on getting cosplays done and then if there is event I have something to wear. (she says but will be surprising if it happens)
 
Thinks that about everything from the end of last year until now. Looking forward to seeing what happens and what events i attend in the coming months. :D
After the last storm by SakuraKatieChan
After the last storm
This past weekend my friend :iconaerblade: and I deputed our newest Cosplays, Mine was War Sakura and hers was Rock Lee. We had so much fun cosplaying these characters together, and we both carn't wait to cosplay them again together in the coming months.

After the event we took some time to take photos of each other so we had some decent photos of our cosplays but time and weather (it was cold) We didn't actually get any photos together.
 So for the past few days I have been working on this. And it really put my Photoshop skills to the test. I haven't really used Photoshop for anything apart from the basic editing of lighting and retouching, for a long time and had to re-learn alot of the prorgram, but I got there in the end XD

Both photos were taken by us and I merged the 2 together the best I could and just messed around with it until I was happy.

 Its really not the best I think I went over board with some things like lighting and effects but I was going for a darker version and both ninja tired and bloody after the last war. 

Thank you to :iconaerblade: for being a great Rock Lee and giving me the idea of putting the 2 photos together for now. Hope you like it <3

We are hoping to get some real photos like this together when (and if) the weather in the UK ever warms up. lol ^_^

Katsuyu Summon!
Sakura takes a few moments away from the war so she can concentrate and summon Katusyu to help with the hurt and deing on the battle field.

Ninja War! by SakuraKatieChan
Ninja War!
This past weekend I and a few others attended our first cosplay event of 2015. I attended Em-con a small SyFy convention held in my home town. 

I debuted my first new Cosplay of the year also, War Sakura.
 The event was good, but not much anime there but kinda knew that as it was more aimed at Dr Who and other Syfy shows. But i had a great time none the less and it was nice to be out in Cosplay again and have a Rock Lee and Ino with me for the event. 

Cosplay isn't 100% finished got to add pockets on the front so just kinda giving it a test run, for now expect more photos in the coming months.

Cosplay and photo edited by me.
