Yeesh. It's been over a year?! That's not good. Shame on me. I'll upload more often, more everything, honest, if I don't you can... send me angry notes? Yeah that works.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell where to start. Bad things first? Why not.
My Dad passed away in January. He suffered cancer in one of his kidneys, struggled with it for over a year and then passed away peacefully at home around 2am. So that's been a pretty big blow to our family, but we're coping; Malcolm, our eldest cat, is being the man of the house now (followed by me, or Matt, my older brother, when he's home).
Getting back into cosplay properly again now, currently in the works I have Matt from DeathNote again, re-doing after the monstrosity that was '09 (if you ask nicely I may even find you a photo of ~BlinkCrySmile
and myself as Mello, Near and Matt) and also have Lilith Saahl crusnik form from Trinity Blood, Mu-12 combat form from BlazBlue, and Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop (dem smoking characters eh?)
I have recently become obsessed with faeries (and mattXmello everything but that's not really new) so any excuse to wear my beautiful wings I jump at it. Need a fairy (or someone to eat fire
) then I'm your girl! If you want your own set of wings go to Fairytrade on Etsy here www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Fairytrad…
Now poses one of the biggest issues I want to address here as I'd like some advice on it. And strangers on the internet are the best people to ask. Whether you've had experience with something similar or not it'd be nice to hear what your opinions on the matter are.
I've come out to my family as bi (Pan technically, but that seemed like too much effort to explain to my parents, google it if you don't know what that means, it's close enough to bi for the purposes of explaining to bewildered folks). I've come out to all of my friends as well, in a sense of just everyone seemed to know and except without my having to do anything, apparently it was just one of those "Oh really? Yeah we already knew" sorta things.
Which is why I have a conundrum. I don't know how to come out as poly. I've spent a good amount of time thinking about it and I can comfortably say that I am polyamorous. This is where you find yourself having an emotional relationship with more than one person, and not necessarily sex as well, but often you feel attracted to the person that way too (polygomy is the one where you have a sexual relationship with more than one person but not an emotional one).
How do you go about explaining that to your friends and family? And your boyfriend of now around 11 months?
I don't want to come out with the intention to then go on an asking everyone who's comfortable with it out, I just want people to know so those few special people can understand better how I feel about them, and then one day maybe come to some kind of arrangement that works for us all. At the same time I'm not sure how Adam would react and I've grown annoyingly attached to him over the past year
Any advice, thoughts and comments on this would be welcome because I'm stuck well and truly.
So far this year I've been to London MCM Expo (May as you may have guessed) and am on the hunt for any demon form Scanty (Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt) pictures that aren't terrifyingly hideous, if you see any link me, I was the only pvc clad demon that I saw so chances are if you find a photo it'll be me! (On Sunday I did a rushed Matt cosplay just to have a nice relaxing day and bumped into a couple of Matt and Mello cosplayers through the day which was nice). It was a nice weekend overall really
I'm hoping to attend Hyper Japan at some point, probably towards the other end of the year, with my Lilith cosplay and ~BlinkCrySmile
as Crusnik Cain, but that's not wonderfully certain yet.
I don't think I've missed any wonderful detail of my life out, if there's something you want to ask then just ask it and I'll answer as best I can. Until next time!
