Dallas was a blast; after the zoo we went to the anime store (where I spent way too much money) and had lots of fun there. (I would kill to work at an anime store, even for minimum wage.)
So apart from one Amazon purchase, it is now time to save all my paychecks for anime conventions. I'm going to a quilting convention next Friday, where I don't anticipate on buying much (if they even have anything to buy), so that should make my pickings for the Waco HOTcon a lot bigger. I'm still really nervous about advertising for photoshoots though. I'm doubting my career as a cosplay photographer more and more--and not because I don't think I have the skills for once. It's just advertising for it in the first place that makes me wary. Maybe instead of wearing a sign or something, I should just ask really cool cosplayers if I could do a photoshoot with them and then get more and more business that way? Or at least build my portfolio with cool cosplays. I think I'll do that. I should get some business cards made.
I only have one entry for my contest!! Come on, guys! This is really important to me and I don't want to draw a consolation prize for "thanks for even entering my contest". I'll extend the contest another month, so that gives you guys until March 28 at 11:59 PM central time.
Here's the details on the contest if you haven't been keeping up.
It's been too long since I've held a contest. So let's have one!
Dental hygiene is a very important matter that sadly, I have gotten worse at. I may brush my teeth once a week. I am not proud of myself and I don't want the dentist to scold me when I go in April to get my teeth cleaned.
Your task is to create a drawing that persuades me to brush my teeth every night. You can use humor or scare tactics (or both), bribery (such as drawing a sexy character promising something delicious if I do it), or anything else you can think of. You can use my characters, your characters, characters from favorite shows, anyone you can think of. This needs to be something I can look at every day and feel motivated to do this one simple task.
The deadline will be February 28 at 11:59 PM Central time. First place will be a full picture from yours truly. If I get some really creative entries I may do a second place as well.
Have fun and good luck! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
