Hello people! Long time no see!
I haven't stopped cosplaying, costuming or anything of the sort. Right now, I'm just recovering from the last three years of school. We had an amazing fashion show, and the costume group really shined this year compared to past events, so we were all very happy and proud of ourselves! It was an amazing experience.
As you've probably realized, I'm not active on DA anymore. I'm not sure why, but DA just lost a lot of interest to me, mainly because it is so hard for me to reach for other people on this platform. I'm done trying to make excuses about why I'm not being active; I simply don't use DA as I was before. Right now, it's more like a portfolio for my best pictures, and even then I'm not sure that I'll use it that often. That's why I recently moved to Facebook by creating my own page. I'm not trying to reach a state of fame; I just prefer how Facebook links me to my local cosplay community, and how easier it is to communicate with people to get feedback or share works in progress and knowledge in a visual manner. By reaching out to more people, I hope to broaden my horizons, meet new persons and gain more experiences. Here's a link: www.facebook.com/pages/Le-Lapi…
If you're wondering why I changed my nickname, it is because I am still trying to find an identity for myself. I though about my username on DA, and it honestly doesn't hold that much of a meaning to me anymore and is not very original. So I derived my nickname from "Tsukino Usagi" by translating "moon bunny" in my first language (french), which is "le lapin lunaire". It's probably not that original either, but because Sailor Moon means a lot to me, it only made sense for me to honour her in some way. I tried to find some other names that could fit, but more often than not it just sounded too childish or weird. So I'll keep nicknaming myself "Le Lapin Lunaire" on the web for a while longer and use my real name in competitions because it just sounds right to me.
As for my next project, I'm currently teaming up with derpcaro
for a Tales of Zestiria
duo for Otakuthon! We're testing the waters to see if we make a great team or not, and if it works well we'll continue cosplaying together. I'm also working on another group with some friends and some costume ideas for Costume Con 35!
Finally, I also want to thank the few of you who followed me for the last few years and supported my work. This means a lot to me, and now that I finished College, there is only room for me to continue growing. If you wish to continue following my work, I would invite you to take a look at my new page!
Again, to anyone who keeps looking at my page, thank you very much for your support. I'll still log in from time to time and perhaps post a few pics, but Facebook is now the best way to contact me.
