...Apparently, I entirely missed 2016. |Da

Hello there, everyone! I am, in fact, alive. More or less. Afraid still not running many conventions this year, but here's what's on the plate if anyone is interested!

Anime North! May 26-28th - I'll be in the Dealers Hall, at the Jack and Pookie Booth (V8) I'll have all my art and jewelry and what-not. :)

Otakuthon - Sadly, currently sitting on the waiting list and the fire sale list. Waiting to see what happens there.

Comic Con Xmas Sale - Assuming they do it again this year, in lieu of the dead Pop Expo. Will definitely be there if it comes up!

And that's what I'm looking at so far this year, at the moment. ^__^

Meanwhile, I have some new art to upload--I might have sorta gotten into a new fandom the past two years. (And by might have, sort have, I mean... I'm like, WAY in. So in. So, very very far in.)

Oh! Commissions! I am currently taking some if somehow anyone might be interested. Just a simple post right now, until I can update my full one after Anime North.

And, lastly, welcome to all my new watchers and many thanks for all the likes I've been seeing the past, uh, years. |D They're much appreciated. :)
It's that time of year again! Conventions! Although this year, thus far, I only have two on my plate. ^.^;

Anime North! May 22nd to the 24th - I SHOULD be in the Crafter's Corner, but things are a lil' up in the air since my cheque still hasn't been cashed and I haven't been able to get a response outta the CC head yet if everything is okay or not. lol If things don't work out, my back has kindly been covered. Me and my stuff will be there, no matter what. XD

Otakuthon! August 7th to the 9th - CONVENTION FOR MY BIRTHDAY. \o/ Was a bit worried I hadn't scored a table, but I was a dumb and worried for nothing. I'm super looking forward to this one. ^__^

And... that's it right now.

Rather doubting PopExpo will be back this year... Naru's definitely dead and done... My convention options are dwindling. lol Gotta start looking into some of the other cons popping up. My eye is on G-Anime since seems they're going to have a Summer Edition? No table registration info is up... so gonna keep eye on it. I haven't been able to return to the convention since the first edition... table registrations always came up when I really couldn't consider it or just plain missed it. So we'll see, I guess.

Geez, the year sure flew. I swear they're getting faster. :|

Otakuthon came and went... it went pretty well! Pop Expo also came and went... it went pretty poorly. I think if they decide to continue the con, it really needs to be moved a lil' earlier in November or maybe into an October slot. The attendance seemed lower than last time, somehow, despite advertising EVERYWHERE. I wasn't expecting Comic con level of attendance, but 38,000 vs 7000... it's a bit baffling. (Other than apparently there was a LOT of Santa Claus parades that weekend. lol) Ah well. Bummer. See how things are next year.

As I always do, having a lil' Christmas sale. If anyone's interested, you can see what's available here: winddrifter.tumblr.com/post/10…

In next day or two, I'm going to start moving some things to my Etsy. (www.etsy.com/shop/winddrifter) But not everything/prices may vary, so yeah. lol Might wanna get in touch with me before hand if there's anything someone out there would like. :3

Annnnnd... yeah. That's it for now. ^.^/

I donno if many read this anyways, but I guess I should update. XD

So Anime North! It came and went oh so quickly. Was my first year in the Dealer's room (I was there with Jack and Pookie Publishing, who I make Pooklets for), which was rather different. We were kinda in a back corner, so I felt a bit like I didn't see all the faces I'm used to seeing when I'm there, but it happens. :) Looking forward to the future

Next convention I'll be at is Otakuthon! \o/ ...providing accommodations work out, anyways. That part is a bit up in the air right now. ^.^; Hopefully will work it all out. lol

Then... I'm not entirely sure. If the Pop Expo returns I'd like to get a table there, but haven't seen any info for this year yet. Looking like Naru2U has finally kicked the bucket, if the rumours that it's done are true, so that's that, I suppose. (Poor Naru2U just could never seem to quite get it's act enough together. From poor organization and promotion and a horribly designed website over and over again... Such a shame.) Ganime has very few tables and is always looong sold out by the time I have a chance to think about it, so I'm not entire sure what I'm going to fill it's hole with. Lot of other cons are even further afield... :/a

Annnd I'm FINALLY starting to get stuff up on my Etsy other than ponies, though having a hard time deciding what's worth putting up there. There's a lot of the kind of things I make up there, so it's a big debate. lol Got two necklaces so far... prolly have few more things shortly.

And... yeah. That's about all that's exciting and new. lol

Boy, this was sure a year.

Otakuthon went alright, considering plans fell apart, and my friend Nicole was unable to go due to back problems that chose just before the con to make themselves known.

Then heard that the people who do Ottawa Comic Con were suddenly doing a new convention called Ottawa Pop Expo that'd be happening in December, so I took the chance to grab a table there.

So then came Naru2U.... was actually not too bad a year for me. Better than past couple. Then my little sister got married, so went for a trip to Toronto weekend before the Pop Expo... Then came the expo! Sadly it was definitely not the same crowd the ComicCon gets. It was a little quieter and seemed people weren't ready to buy christmas presents (think there were also a LOT of crafter artists AND dealers, so there was a fair bit of over saturation going on.) Made back my table, and little else. :( BUT that's the way these things go. lol

Thus finally ended my con season. I don't think I'll have another event till Anime North, so have awhile to recover and finally get to work on filling up my Etsy.

First things first, however! Every year for past 5 or so years now, I have a Christmas sale of all my left over con stuff, and doing the same thing once more!

Check out my Tumblr for details!

winddrifter.tumblr.com/post/70…

And that is that for this year. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!

WELL! Anime North was a thing that happened. Didn't go too badly, though preparations were foiled the week before cause I came down with the nasty cold that had been going around. That wasn't fun.

Now trying to prepare for Otakuthon. Probably only going to bring few plushies this year, since they didn't go down as good at Otakuthon as they did at AN last year. Trying to get back to actually making and finishing some art. Lol Have few pieces in the works, that will soon be up. ^.^

Meanwhile, FINALLY got my Etsy going! Only has two ponies up right now (Rainbow Dash and a Filly Fluttershy), but more will be there shortly! (A Pinkie, filly Rarity and prolly few more.) Kanzashi and other such things will probably be added soon enough. (Since I kinda have a copy of Disgaea D2 to pre-order... Cause OMG Disgaea D2!!! *O* )

Link to my Etsy!

The past year I also started creating Pooklets for Jack and Pookie Publishing. The Pooks at Anime North (And the last Naru2U actually) and those going forward will all be created by me. They'll be available at the upcoming Con Bravo at the Jack and Pookie dealers table and will be at both their and my tables at Otakuthon. There's a lot of ideas and plans being spoke of, so that'll be something I'll likely speak of in the future. ^_^

And... I think that's about it for now. ^_^/

Anime North preparations continue! All the sewing of ponies again. lol (Although I wish I could be drawing instead. Funny, first time in ages I've wanted to draw more than craft, BUT OOPS HAVE A CRAFT TABLE SO...) Though gonna get interrupted next weekend by Ottawa Comic Con... wasn't able to even have a chance at a table there like I'd hoped, but getting a SUPER early birthday present from the family who paid for a deluxe ticket, so I'll be there wandering around instead. (And, you know, wishing I had a table. lol )

Meanwhile, table reg for Otakuthon happened, and I managed to snag a table! ...Man, I wish table registrations didn't always seem to happen BEFORE Anime North. /putting off Naru2U's for now. |O Just gotta send in my form and that will be all good, so looking forward to that. Gonna work on more art this time for it, as ponies didn't do so well there. lol

MEANWHILE, for a limited time only:

~*~Sketch Commissions~*~ over on my Tumblr!

This is the first time I've ever really done this, but pre-convention expenses are hurting this year, and tonight took a turn of even more bad luck. >.<; So ANY commissions would be SO, SO much appreciated! (Oh and I can totally be contacted here on DA, instead of Tumblr!)

SO this is prolly last post before Anime North, so hopefully see some of you there! Or maybe see few at Ottawa Comic Con, I suppose. XDa lol

Though overdue is about the norm on my DA page...

Hello followers!

I'm alive. Somewhat. Past few months have been kinda crappy health wise, which has kept me from doing much in the way of art/crafts, but least finally back on my feet and trying to prepare for Anime North. Cause, holy crap, is AN fast approaching!

Yup, once more I was able to get a table in the Crafter's Corner, so I'll be there again this year! =D

*Edits* Conundrum is solved. lol

Anyhoo! My offerings will be much as they've been past years... chainmail, kanzashi, cellphone charms, knitted things, and YES, there will definitely be ponies. Should be a lot better prepared this year. So, if anyone out there is still interested in a pony plush from us and will be at AN... yeah. I'll definitely have some. :3

SO YEAH. If I don't post again, see some of you in May! ^.^/

Hello followers! ^_^/

My goodness... HOW IS IT ALREADY DECEMBER? X_x I have no idea. Time has just flown this year.

Few weeks ago I was at Naru2U! Did reasonably well despite arguably having the worst placed table in the Artist Alley. It might've been okay if they'd had more tables up the stair landing at the back like they'd originally planned... but they all got moved down to the main foyer... leaving me and one other girl alone up there. It... really sucked. BUT I still did better than the past two years, so I guess that's something.

As always this year, I'm having a little Christmas sale. :D This might be the last time I do this, as in January I'm going to be getting my Etsy going and stuff. ^_^ I'm hosting the sale on my journal as I have done in the past (though now on Dreamwidth instead of Livejournal lol cause LJ has gone failtastic. =A=; ) Anyone who's interested can find it here:  supreme-overlord.dreamwidth.or…

Got few more things to add to it, but enough there to share it, I figure. Also.. yes, I do have a few finished Ponies to sell. >.> <.<

Speaking of Ponies, thank you to everyone who has contacted me about them! I AM considering opening commissions soon, just not as soon as I was hoping! I think it will be in January, as from 17th of December to 11th of January I'm going to be gone on a trip! Gone where, you ask? England actually! Going to go see all my family over there and stuff, like my Grandmother. This might be last chance I have to see her, so it's a really important trip. I don't think I can really carry pony making supplies over the ocean with me. XD;

BUt yes! I DO have a few for sale (see above) for any that might be interested in any of those.

Annnd, I think that's it. If I don't post again in the next few weeks, I hope everyone has a wonder holiday season! :)

Meant to write this up awhile ago, oops... SO. OTAKUTHON. Went alright in the end. :3 I ended up feeling really crappy for two weeks and rainetomoe had just so much work beforehand that we didn't get as much done as we really wanted to. ...This happens a lot to us before cons. lol But anyhoo! I still really enjoy Otakuthon, so hopefully will continue to go.

I'm thinking about trying to get a G-anime table this year since I'm so happy this year they didn't put the tables up like.. during Anime North. That was a relief. lol But we'll see.

Naru2U's sold out very quickly this year... I was on the waiting list and got an email about a table opening, but when I replied I never got anything back about it, so I donno what happened there. Blargh. I don't usually make a lot at Naru, but hate to miss a hometown con, cause it's like, HERE. Have to send them an email and see if I'm still on the waiting list, I guess.

ANYHOO... SO. TUMBLR. I have one! Finally. Well, a couple now actually, but here's the link to my art/crafts one: winddrifter.tumblr.com

And lastly, PONIES:

With my partner, rainetomoe, drowning in work shifts, it seems I'll be handling the pony making stuff for now. I'm a little nervous of drowning in commissions to currently feel like I can open any commission slots. (There is also still one last one we're working on completing... we're still trying to find Scootaloo mane colour. I have a huge order of minky on it's way that I'm hoping will have finally a suitable colour! ...and yes, this order does include minky for Rainbow Dash! :D )

So this is what I'm thinking: As I complete ponies, I will be putting them up on my own Etsy (Mine is: www.etsy.com/shop/winddrifter&… trying to finish setting it all up.  www.etsy.com/shop/rainetomoe Is Rainetomoe's, where there are still a few for sale, btw!) So keep an eye out! Tumblr will probably get updated the quickest, so that's also a place to watch for announcements.

I'm also willing to message anyone with a heads up if they're after any specific ponies. Just drop me a comment or note! ^_^b

So yes. ^.^ That's all for this update.

Life's been... well, interesting since Anime North. XD Been busy trying to get preps for Otakuthon going! I'm going to have a full table this year, so gotta fill it up! Lots of pony making for me this month! lol But also trying to work on some, GASP, art! Shocking, I know, right? Haha I have some sketches I'm working on. Hopefully they'll get finished in time, because it would be nice to least have a few new prints.

Anyone who's interested in our plushies, rainetomoe is currently the one handling the 'business' of that, so to speak. XD But I will note there may or may not be a Time Turner aka Doctor Whooves up on her etsy~ :3

NOW, back to work. o/

This year hardly went to plan. Our third person/ride from Ottawa had no choice but to bail as her work went from difficult about giving her time off this weekend to that they'd fire her if she went. D: So my Dad had to give me and Nikki rainetomoe a ride down to Toronto. And things just seemed to keep getting messed up. Like not being able to get our Pre-reg on Thursday (It's really time Artist's and Crafter's got some kinda priority like dealers do, imho. Especially with pre-reg becoming crazier than ever.)

Since Nikki had needed to go to Peterborough earlier in the week for a job interview, it had left me with trying to finish up our ponies.... which I had not been able to  totally do. So plan was to try to get what we could done in the evenings/table. We were able to get a LOT done, but there were still a few we'd hoped to get done that we were just unable to. By time we usually got back to the hotel room and had eaten and such, it was suddenly midnight and not long after that... I just couldn't stay awake. I never made up for lost sleep this weekend, so I was exhausted all weekend. I was totally going on fumes. I also lost my Rozalin costume's hair piece. :( I guess good thing I was planning to make this the last con for it for awhile. I LOVE that costume, but it really needs some fabric replacing.

To say I'm wiped out today is an understatement!

As for the con itself... I didn't get to see much of it as usual. Not even the 404s. :( I did get to one of NISA's panels... wasn't really much I didn't already know about. |D Got some prinny shaped silly bands for wearing my costume and managed to ask about the fail that is the D2 psp DLC... sadly only got a cringing don't know about fixing it... dammit. I want battle cries on my DLC. ;A; Least seemed to know what I was talking about. Nikki and I also tried to get to the doll market... but there was a HUGE lineup X_x We had to get to our table, so THAT didn't happen.  orz

SO YEAH. PONIES. ALL THE PONIES. My goodness. We knew they'd probably do well. We didn't expect to be practically selling while they were still in pieces hiding behind our table.  News that we had them really got around the con too. It was crazy! I really wish we could have had more to offer. Time just was NOT on our side this year. We worked REALLY hard to get done what we did. I dragged myself outta bed super early both mornings to work on them.

We had a LOT of questions about commissions... at first we said we might, but now we really gotta see how things go. Especially since it had to have been at least 20 people who asked by the end of the con. O_o That's a lotta commissions... We might have to look at monthly slots or something so we're not overwhelmed. We'll figure something out and post about it as soon as we do. Just have to finish recovering from the convention first! XD Though, I am going to make an effort to finish up the few ponies we had half finished. We shall put those up on Etsy, most likely, when they are completed.

(And just to answer something that did come up... why our are eyes not embroidered? Because hand embroidery takes a lotta time that would push the cost up a lot higher, and we don't currently have/have access to an embroidery machine. So iron-ons were the best looking/cost effective option. For the record though, I did vector the eyes myself. :3 When we aren't both so poor, we DEFINITELY wanna lay our hands on an machine that can do embroidery though. )

Commissions are also going to be a bit tricky because Nikki is going to be moving back to Peterborough, and I'm in rural Ottawa, (where I'm about to be house bound for much of the summer... )... but her and her sister are planning to come up and visit me much as they can! So we might have to have sewing weekends. lol

There's also now Otakuthon to prepare for! YES, we will be at Otakuthon. =D Also will look into getting a table at Naru2U. Don't know about G-Anime as of yet.

We're also thinking of looking into a button maker for Otakuthon... Excitement!

SO YES.

I'm now gonna fall back into bed. |Db
Where has time gone? Seriously.  May has arrived so quickly.

Yes, I have a table again in the Crafter's Corner at Anime North! WHOOT! So been busy crafting for the past few months, or trying to anyways. Things have been kinda crazy lately and my concentration has been rotten, but I'm getting there. The OMG RUNNING OUT OF TIME hasn't hit yet. I'm still oddly calm. Sure that'll change in two weeks. lmao

Trying to finish a quick cosplay I started to throw together last year and didn't manage to finish. (Fuuka from Disgaea 4. Not my favourite character from the game, but it was something fun and EASY I could throw on during days like Friday's where I'm inevitably going crazy. XD)

Also have to try to repair my Rozalin dress a bit. The gold is kinda looking dingy now, but finding a matching gold satin is proving to be difficult... I wasn't actually going to bring it to AN this year, but in the regular NISA newsletter, they mentioned they'd be at AN this year. *NISA* at *Anime North* ...I can't not bring my Rozy costume! XD And then I'll have my Shantotto cosplay.

Also gonna try to poke into Ottawa's new Comic Con. Didn't have the knowledge of it's existence to look into getting a table... though being so close to Anime North, I think it would've been a terrible scramble. Still deciding what I'll wear cosplay wise to that...

I also managed to grab a Otakuthon table! \o/ Hoping to do new a new costume or two for that con. :3 Not to mention actually try to DRAW some things. Won't that be something? lmao XD

Gonna look into Naru2U after Anime North and maybe I won't miss G-Anime's artist alley this year... that'd be something.

So, yeah! 2012 is looking pretty good.  Hopefully. *KNOCKS ON DESK*

Oooops! Never did update this when I'd meant to...

SO! Man, hard to believe this year is almost over.

I was at Otakuthon and Naru2U this year.

Otakuthon was disappointing on the sales front, but I REEEALLY liked the convention. A lot. The atmosphere was really nice, and really had no problems at all with language stuff, which I was worried about a bit, but YAY. No problems. I hope to go back next year.

Naru2U....welll... it was better than last year? lol They still have a long ways to go (like those damn bracelets... ), but at least it didn't feel like they took a giant step back this year like they did last year. I think there was improvement, at least. Hopefully they can do better next year. Sales wise? Eh, also better than the year before, but still meh. I'm not sure Otakuthon and Naru were so much the cons as just the time and economy and just some years certain things sell like crazy and some... they don't. It's so hard to predict.

So that was this years con season. Unfortunately, because G-Anime keeps on having Artist Alley sign-ups so ridiculously early, I won't be there again this year, unless somehow I get stupidly lucky. lol ^^;;;

I intend to be at Anime North, however, long as I can get a table. Probably still be heading for the craft area... I just haven't had enough new work I think to do well in the artist area right now. D: But least I am starting to do some art again. (I have few small things to upload...)

SO~! Since I have a lotta left over con things/half finished things, I made a sale post on my LJ again this year. IDK if anyone would be interested in anything there, but if someone somehow is, drop me a line! :D My awesome sale post is here.

...I'm also almost always available for commissions... just saying. XD ♥

Think that's everything... I got some new weapon skills to test on XI's test server. *O* Now, let's see how long it'll take me again to update this. Lol

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Well, me and my friend rainetomoe managed to get us a craft table again this year! Yeah, passed on the comic market again this year. As my lack of uploads probably makes apparent, my mood to draw has been much rolled over and died. With next to no new artwork, I didn't feel like I was up for the comic market this year. However, my mood to hold knitting needles and glue guns has been epicly high. Hence CRAFT TABLE! o/

Gonna have my chainmail, bunch of my tsumami kanzashi and knitted items mainly at the table. Will have some shrinky-dink things too, for any who would like some of my art. ^_^ Gonna TRY to doodle few more things for them. So I won't completely fail in that regard.

Struggling to decide what to do cosplay wise. IDK if I'll have the money/time to put together a new cosplay. I'll be bringing Shantotto for sure... just on the fence about my Rozalin costume. It's had a lot of use now. (I really need to do few repairs on it...) I've worn it to AN like... 3 times now? (and to pretty much all the Ottawa cons last few years...) Only wore it one day last year... but. Anyhoo.

Is it possible to wear the same costume too much??? I really have no idea. XD If someone knows the answer to this, do tell! ;D I do love my Rozy costume, much as it can be a pain in the ass. lol

Meanwhile, I am looking actually at being at Otakuthon, since I actually know people trying to go this year, which is exciting! Though I'll have to bribe couple of my french speaking friends to translate signs for me. >.> Living down in the states through middle/highschool meant my poor french took a dive into a pool of epic fail. I can say hello, how are you and answer back. Some numbers... annnnnnnd that's about it. =D lol Ah well...

Also might get to go even to Fanexpo, since my sister is currently in spitting distance from it, but I'd just go to chill.


...Deviant needs a mood more related to "Busy". lol
Naru2U has come and gone... It was not what I'd hoped for, alas. I'm not sure if I will be back or not. G-Anime's tables vanished before I even thought about it, so looks like I won't be at another con until Anime North. :(

Hell has seriously frozen over. I FINALLY created my website, and it's almost finished, save the blog and shop part. (Gonna tackle those later tonight after I've, lol slept.)

It's more a site than I've had in yeaaaaaaars. (The Way Back Machine has plenty of proof of my fail over the years. .__.; )

It's kind of bare-bones at the moment. I couldn't even begin to think of how to make it more interesting, but it's something at least! Hopefully I'll get some inspiration in the future months. XD

Anyhoo, CHECK IT OUT? =D

I live!

Uploaded few bits and pieces I had sitting around. I've been crafting more than drawing lately, but need to try to get a few drawing things done in the coming months, now that I've finally had a bunch of health things, that decided to crop up ALL at the same time, taken cared of. I'm registered for Naru2U and will have a table. /o/ I'm looking forward to it a lot.

Meanwhile, about to try and get my website setup again, FINALLY. And also am considering giving Etsy a try. I keep being asked if I'm on there and such, lol. There's just so MUCH chainmail and the like up there. I worry I'll just be lost in the crowd... Humhum.

OH! I knew I was forgetting something... Thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday! It was very much appreciated. :)

SO. I will be at Anime North, but I won't be found in the 'Comic Market' this year. I wasn't even able to get a table by lottery this year (I'm not even on the waiting list! lol)

But my stint of bad luck ended as I managed to claim a craft table instead! So I'll be selling my chainmail and such this year in the 'Crafter's Corner' instead. Although, I'm trying to figure out what not-paper things I might be able to use for some of my art. XD I wonder where the heck I can find some shrinky dinks... Trying to figure what other things I might be able to make too. I have a large hoard of quilting scraps and random chunks of fabric. Plus there's my crochet and knitting... Hrm.

If anyone has any creative suggestions, I'm all ears. 8D

Meanwhile, if I manage to make a few originals I'm up for selling this month, I am going to look at possibly getting a little gallery space at the con. ...If any is still available by the time I've managed to accomplish that. Lol

Hopefully Naru2U in the fall will go according to plan.  I need to find another con I can actually attend... humhum.

Inked Sketch - $20
Inked and Digitally coloured - $30+
Inked and Traditionally coloured (Markers, coloured pencils etc.) - $40+
Digital and Traditional painting type stuff - $50+
Avatar/Icon Head Portrait - $8

These are just rough guidelines. More characters and heavier detail (especially in the background) would cost more. But I'm really too nice and very flexible (you tend to be when you're poor ;D), ask nicely and you might receive. ^.^

I also take chainmail commissions! How much depends on material/size/ring size etc. Contact me for further information. ^.^
Well. This was some depressing news...

Suzaku Festival has been cancelled, so I guess I sure won't be there now, lol. I decided to pass on GAnime quite awhile back since I'd completely missed Artist Alley registration (I can't think about conventions 9 months in advance >.>; ) so... DX

I guess I'll be at AN this May, then back at Naru2U hopefully next fall.

Nargh, I was really looking forward to Suzaku...
