New Year

Fri Jan 18, 2013, 3:42 PM

New year, new problems is more of an appropriate name. XD

Still unemployed, still job hunting, and receiving nothing from unemployment after lengthy appeals and hearings. I'm running my store still, which has costumes, jewelry, hair accessories, and now... cosplay prints! You're welcome to check it out over here:…

In other news, my boyfriend did move in with me, so at least I have help financially there. Parents have been chipping in as well. x.X But oye, job. Please.

As of now, I will be attending some conventions: Animeland Wasabi in March in Colorado via Artist Alley while doing some convention coverage, AnomalyCon in March in Colorado via Artist Alley with friends' booth, and Denver Comic Con in Colorado via my nerdgasm for Stan Lee attending. I'll announce costumes and the like as times draw closer.

Back from AWA

Fri Oct 5, 2012, 1:51 PM

I loved AWA again this year, especially since we had such an awesome turnout for our Last Chance Myu performance! :D I debuted Silver Millennium Mercury, which the girls at :iconstarlit-creations: made for me, Rei's Myu-styled summer seifuku (school uniform), Rei's trenchcoat for Bloody Mystery, and Rei's Myu-styled outfit for Light ni Adventure. It was a blast!

However, right before the con, I was fired from my job at the Riviera Casino after I reported a theft and got the people who did the theft to pay for it. Long story short, my honesty and morales got me canned for doing the right thing and having it turned around on me. As such, I've been job hunting while learning I'm getting a very small amount from unemployment and getting denied for health insurance due to my kidney problems a few years ago. Needless to say, my shop on Etsy has been updated with costumes and other items. I've made them pretty affordable, so please take a look:…

I'm hoping to get a job soon, since I don't like having to rely on others for money. I'm still planning to attend Katsucon, but we'll see how finances will be over the next few months. : (

Final Con for the Year

Mon Sep 10, 2012, 12:23 PM

My last convention for the year will be Anime Weekend Atlanta! I will be there from September 27-30. I'm attending with Last Chance Myu for our 2nd performance there! I will be bringing 3 show costumes I can't divulge, but all are new, my Christmas Hotaru, and debuting Silver Millennium Mercury, made by the lovely ladies at Starnigh Industries! Everything I'm bringing is Sailor Moon related. XD

Hope to see people there! :D

Conventions and Costumes for 2012

Sat Apr 14, 2012, 12:51 PM

So, for the rest of 2012, I'm only attending 2 conventions. I have a job now (yayayayayay!), so I had to change up what was going to be attended.

- Denver Comic Con on June 15-17
- Debuting Poison Ivy from Batman
- Debuting Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory
- Rewearing Phoenix from X-Men

- Anime Weekend Atlanta on September 28-30
- Attending with Last Chance Myu for our 2nd performance there!
- Costumes still undecided

That's it for this year! I'll be looking at Katsucon and Sakuracon (returning to it!) for 2013, will be returning to Anime Wasabi, and depending on my 2 last cons for this year, I may be going to either of those in 2013 as well.

Thank you everyone for the interviews for the blog! I don't even know how many I've sent out, but I now have 2 finished photographer interviews and 9 finished cosplayer interviews for the blog. <3 I'm always taking more, so please continue to send people my way or message me yourselves if interested! :D

In other news, I'm still sadly unemployed. I learned that my previous employer has been illegally saying things when future employers have been calling to get references. Now that I know this, I'm taking action to fix this and make sure I can't be "black-balled" anymore. However, my uneployment runs out in the next week or so, and if I can't gain an extenson, then I have to get creative until the end of November when I may be able to reapply for unemployment. For anyone curious, I do apply to at least 10 jobs a week and go to every interview given, but I had things against me I had no clue on. Hopefully I can find a job soon.

While I wait, I have a few things I'm doing:

1. Yunie's Designs:… - This is my Etsy store. I make and sell jewelry, cosplay items, costumes, and am working on some lolita projects right now. I have a sale going until November 2nd, so if use the code BDAY2011 on checkout, you receive 15% off your order.

2. My Facebook page: - My FB page is privatized, but I am selling some wigs, figurines, and shoes on here in my For Sale folder. If you're potentially interested in those or just wanna be pals, go ahead and add me. <3

3. My Marketplace:… - I have EGL Rei from Evangelion and Tifa from Advent Children up for sale here. I will be adding more costumes in the future.

4. I am taking commissions, whether drawing, jewelry, and/or costumes. I am negotiable on prices, so we can work things out to suit everyone. Private message me on here if interested, and if I can't do what's requested, I will refer you to somewhere else I know that can.

Lastly, I am doing a kiriban at 30,000 views! I'm doing requests for the winner; you can request a costume shot, a picture drawn, basically anything except porn. >.> If you win my kiriban and ask for that, I will fly out there and beat you with a stick. <3 Just take a picture of the captured kiriban, send it my way with your request, and I will get the prize done asap! :D

Requesting Interviews

Tue Oct 11, 2011, 11:35 PM

I am looking for cosplayers and cosplay photographers who would like to be interviewed for Cosplay Blog with a Brain:!

If you're interested and would like a spot on the blog with what you have to say, please private message me on here for an interview! :D

Hope to hear from you guys! And please offer to anyone who you think would be interested!

Anime Weekend Atlanta

Sadly, I'm still unemployed. It's going on 9 months now, which is just ridiculous. : / I'm still receiving benefits, budgeting as much as possible, and hunting for a decent paying job. But yeah, getting tired of my "extended vacation".

However, I've been doing a lot of other stuff. I've been attending a lot of conventions, doing artist alley at a couple, and just generally enjoying that. Most costumes have been rewears or I'm making them from extra fabric I have lying around. I'm still working on my store and doing my blog, the latter taking off unexpectedly in the cosplay community. I'm glad the brainchild has been successful and helpful and has really received only positivity from everyone. <3

I've also been getting back into modeling, specifically on the cosplay side of things. I plan to branch out again into fashion and eventually swimwear. It's been a positive thing as well, since it's helped me get comfortable with my body image again and gain more weight. :D

On the convention front, I'll be attending Nan Desu Kan here in Colorado on September 9-11, working as a "booth babe" for my friends, :iconssfseiyakou: and :iconsshyatenkou:, at their booth in artist alley. :D After that, I'll be attending Anime Weekend Atlanta in Georgia with Last Chance Myu. :D Those are my final cons for the year, but I do have a few costumes I'll be working on.

Costumes currently in the works are Karla from Record of Lodoss Wars, Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil films, and finishing up Healed Galaxia from Sailor Moon. Karla should be debuted at Nan Desu Kan, as I've been working pretty hardcore on her.

I'm also still selling EGL Rei and Advent Children's version of Tifa. I'll be listing them on Ebay soon, along with some other items that I have no use for. XD

Financial Freakout

Tue Jun 14, 2011, 1:08 PM

I just learned last night that my unemployment benefits have been exhausted. I'm short now over $300 on bills this month, and I have a medical procedure next month that I need to gather together cash for. So, I'm getting crazy and putting stuff together to sell off to hopefully meet my needs while I await the decision on my extension that I filed.

Etsy Store: Yunie's Designs

I have my EGL Rei costume up for sale here at $125, along with a bunch of miscellaneous items! There is a promotion going on, where you can input the code MEDIC2011 on checkout and get 30% off your order!! Yunie-chan's Ads…

Fanime and Other Things

Thu Jun 2, 2011, 1:51 AM

Well, I'm back from Fanime! A lot has happened since I last posted.

1. Fanime, obviously. It was absolutely amazing, due to awesome people and good times had by all!

2. Right after our trip to the Stanley Hotel for his birthday and our 6th year anniversary, the boyfriend and I split after I learned he had been cheating on me for 3 months. We are talking and working stuff out, but I am now single and happily so until stuff can get sorted out. It's been.. a weird process to say the least.

3. The blog I've been working on is on hiatus while I'm at my parents'. I should be returning home tomorrow afternoon after some work is done on my car. Then I plan on unpacking, doing a blog, and start cracking on website stuff again. I also have some more costumes to try and sell off.

That's about it. I have at least 2 cons I'm hoping to attend. Nan Desu Kan in Colorado (working with friends in the Artist Alley) and Anime Weekend Atalanta in Georgia (performing with Last Chance Myu), but it all depends on finances. I'll keep everyone posted!

For now, enjoy new pics from Fanime as I get them posted!
