Hey guys!

It's been a while and thought I'd share some insight into my life at the moment.

About 4 weeks ago, I quit my job. I was working five or six days a week in a very abusive work environment. I quit on the same day some other girls did as we were tired of the misogynistic harassment from our boss. 

I was employed as a barista, all rounder ( we really did do everything, severely understaffed) I was taken off service by the big boss when he would come in because I'm "not feminine" enough and my voice wasn't as high pitched as he would like, he told me "you sound like a man" and he would yell at me every time I touched the service. 

He was doing a lot of illegal things there including hiring and black mailing foreign employees.

Told my co worker to come back with more makeup on. We would work anywhere up to 9 hour days and were not allowed to have breaks or eat or drink on the job.

I had been picked up from work crying a lot and was being told by the few people in my life at the moment that I needed to quit. So I walked. 

These last few months Ive lost contact with a lot of family and had lost a lot of people that were close to me, life goes on you know. I had to move out, make a living on my own.  I started university tried to balance study , work, what few relationships I had AND my own anxiety. I completely lost time for cosplay and I was incredibly upset I couldn't balance something I loved to make the weeks easier. 

So I took a few weeks to gain my head back and finish my trimester, get ahead of my life. I even managed to get :iconkrisez: up here to shoot my insane backlog, not even all of it. 11 looks in 24 hours. But Im finally ahead.

It's tough,I have decided cosplay is something I want to be a big part of my life while I study my games dev course. 

Kris came up here so we could shoot something I have so much fun doing and to run my print store so I can live basically. Until I find an actual job I suppose you could call me a professional cosplayer! 

I'm not completely sure if I'm super confident enough to go to any conventions for a while but will see how it goes!

I'm thinking of selling some of my costume stuff too. Trying to make it all work for me! 

I thought I should do a proper explanation as to why Ive been away so long and why I came back so suddenly and active. 

Anyway thanks for reading. TL;DR How do I life?

Edit: Here is my print store details

Life things and Prints!

Hey guys!

Been a while. Finally settling into my new share house, got a new part time job, started uni. Lots of things been going on and I haven't really had a chance to stop. 

Decided to run a print sale now I've settled in to help fund future costumes and endeavors . Living is sucking the fun and funds out of me at the moment so I haven't really had a chance to make anything and I'm hoping the sale does well enough so I can get back in the swing of things!

My store is available at If anyone is interested

So uni has started and I'm studying programming and Games Design! Not much time between working 5 days a week in the morning, Uni on the 6th day and homework all in between but I'm really enjoying myself. 

It's such a drastic change going from so much free time to one free day a week. 

Either way I hope to be back and more active soon! Thanks so much for always being so lovely to me, I really appreciate it!

Print sale!!

All my photos Ive done recently with :iconkrisez:

So if youre interested check it out. >///<

Any Artists want to collaborate!

Hey all! 

Bit of a strange topic but where else to go but dA! 

I'm in the search at the moment for an artist to work with on some Manga styled, colorless artwork. 

In general collaborating with artists seems like a fun thing to do. Basically wanting to do some fun, strange, pieces I can use on my webpages, blogs etc. ALWAYS will be credited and linked. 

Message me if you're interested and let's talk, meow meow. :3

Supanova Sydney + Featured Cosplayers

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 9, 2013, 1:38 AM
Hi everyone!

I wanted to do a little update on my plans and feature some cosplayers while I'm at it!

I'm heading to Sydney in a couple of weeks to go to Supanova convention!
Last time I was at a Sydney SN convention was back in '09. It'll be a fun time, get to meet up with some awesome friends, get some photoshoots.
My plans for the weekend are Saturday: Zero Suit Samus    Sunday: Kasumi DOA5
I have a secret costume I'll be shooting in Sydney too. So I'm really excited for that!
If you're going please come say hi! Get some photos and chill out for a while. I'm really looking forward to it.


I felt like I wanted to share some love around so I'm linking a couple of cosplayers I think you should check out and watch at the moment!



Alychu Cosplay


I'm trying to get into the habit of posting more Journals so I will try my best and feature more cosplayers!

Talk to you next time!

Hi guys!

I wanted to do a little update on everything and my views on somethings.

If you saw my previous journal it was a summary of why I was leaving the facebook cosplay community and my reasoning why.
I failed to really emphasize how most of it had to do with pressure and bullying.
People were asking why had I given in and let the negative take over and why I was cutting myself off from people who cannot use dA who want to view my work.
I had taken in a lot of why I was getting harassed and what I do want to change about myself.
The few weeks of taking myself away from Facebook really opened my eyes to that.
I want to be able to share my work and journey along with people from all ends of the internet but not at the expense of my well being and dignity.
I decided to try again ( even if it may be temporary)  but wiped a lot of the content I wasn't now comfortable with and really moderate what comes up on my page as well as my own posts.

I'm so relieved that nova is over, I can stress less. YET AGAIN I rushed a costume up until the night before :P
But I'm still working on it so I can get awesome photos in a couple of weeks after this week of recovery!

I don't really know what I want to work on at the moment. The last ordeal took a lot out of me. I think I should just rest and wait for another bolt of inspiration.

Anyway. Keep in touch, I love to converse with all the other cosplayers and artists!

New Beginnings!

Sun Mar 31, 2013, 7:10 AM
Hello everyone!


So I decided to suspend my Facebook page... Yep.
And it honestly feels great!
I feel like this massive burden has been taken off my back.

I love cosplay and I have no plan on stopping but I began to doubt these " Fan pages"

I've made mistakes, I've grown and will continue to learn. I've matured and come to realize that I want this to be my beloved hobby and not my job. I don't want the attention I thought I once wanted. I want to make these costumes and bring a little life to them for my own reasons and share them with people that want to see them instead of forcing my updates onto everyones feeds.

I got back into cosplay in 2011. Everything was new to me again. I didn't have parents around telling me I couldn't wear this or dress up as that and I suppose I just wanted to push my own limits. I found people enjoyed my costumes more when there was less of the actual costume, it felt nice to have people recognize what I was wearing (or wasn't haha). It made me feel all those late nights, broken sewing machines and stabbed fingers were worth something. It's easy to get drunk of that kind of positive feedback but recently I began to see past it.

I've always been a people pleaser. The thought of anyone disliking me or what I do has had me in heaps on the floor. I fell victim to the pressure of wanting to be a "hot cosplay chick" because it was the cool thing to do. I wanted to fit in and be admired. I wish I had been a little smarter.
I don't regret any of my costume choices, some I wish I handled with a little more class but I wouldn't change anything.
I've had enough of what feels like this never ending competition for page views and likes and I refuse to try "whore" out half-assed work in order to meet peoples expectations.

I am not happy with how things were and it sounds like I wasn't the only one. Getting slandered and harassed just wasn't what I wanted out of all this. Far from it. Negative comments constantly about my body and appearance to people doubting my work. Just wasn't worth it all in the end.

I feel happy, the page is still there incase I ever change my mind so I'm just seeing it as an indefinite break from Facebook and the ever so popular "Fan pages".

I feel amazing at the moment.

I will cosplay who I want at my own pace. I've grown old and tired of the fame games and the nastiness that comes along with them. Back to the days with Fandoms and passion for cosplay.
Here from now on you will see a lot more heart in my work, more effort, characters I will cosplay because I WANT to cosplay them ( Chii, Fuck yeah! Chest bind for Chobits!) Right here on my dA.

I did this for myself and my well being. No one else.

And just like that I feel more motivated then I ever have.



Sorry, I've been away, things have been going on and all that jazz.
But I'm back and with cosplay plans!
I have Lady and Sylvanas in progress for Gold Coast Nova.
So that's super exciting.


I've been undergoing a fitness routine and sticking to it lately. Working hard and toning up. This time last year I was 8 kg heavier then I was now and it feels good to shed it. Another 5 and I'll be at my goal. You can see some of my IG progress pics at

My facebook page has suprassed 12 000 likes now which is excellent. I'm always on it, feels good to have everyone in one place to share updates etc..
Come join me if you haven't already;

So overall It feels good to be active again and I hope to share many new costumes with you all!
So as of yesterday I've been selling posters here:…
They are roughly A3 size and $12US each plus shipping.
If you are interested in getting some posters, the chart of available ones can be found on my page and message me the numbers and I'll send you the estimate shipping and invoice!
This is the first time I've done something like this and I've been having a lot of fun.
Oh! I sign and write whatever you like on them too!
So go check it out if you're interested!

Here are ALSO links for everywhere you can find me:

I get a lot of questions about where is the best place to message me and it is indeed my facebook page. I've organised it a bit better now!

Supanova is coming up! Expect to see I-no and Kanu there! Raven haired vixens GOGOGO!

Hi everyone!

Completely shocked at all the positive attention my Bayonetta cosplay has been getting. Im so thrilled to be receiving all these kind messages.It took me a lot of work and its still far from perfect but I will perfect it soon! Its just one of those characters I feel tied to and want to really bring her alive as much as possible. Nintendo obviously needs to put me in the Bayo 2 add for the WiiU LOL. Im not joking, I'd jump on that like crazy. A GIRL CAN DREAM ALRIGHT!

My latest gangnam style video as Yoko:… Has been flagged as inappropriate and can't be viewed on mobiles and Germany. WAAAAAAHHH! You're a pain in the ass Youtube. FIX YO SHIT. But seriously I understand bikini's, boobs and such.

I wish I could just game for a job. Not like testing but talking about it,… I gave it a shot. Fail attempt as it may :<

Oh well, My facebook is at 5450 at the moment. Thinking for another milestone, This one being 10 000, Ill be doing a nothing but hair bayonetta shoot, something like this: . I've probably jinxed myself now but okay :P  So go like it if you haven't:…

Anyway this was poorly written before leaving for work. So yeah. Put in lots of big words and a better composition and pretend this post was worth reading. <3

Hi everyone!

So Im super SUPER excited to start working on my Bayonetta cosplay. I got in my PVC catsuit and gloves this moring and I can't wait to start tweaking it!
I will be wearing this to EB expo in sydney in October!
My picture of me trying out the bodysuit and gloves can be found here ^_^ :…
Please like and share my page also, I'd love to share ny cosplay journey with as many people as possible!
It was a rather tight fit, Ive never owned a catsuit before and I wasn't sure if I was supposed to fit in it as snuggly as I did or not. Either way, I intend on stretching it a fair bit to manage to fit my thighs and boobage in it. Once I start making the open back I think Ill fit into it all rather nicely!

I also got my contact lenses in, You can see them in the awkward fail tallk video I made:…

Subscribe to my channel when you can also :3 It'd make me a very happy kitty.

More updates coming soon...!

<3 Kat

So I made this video..

It was before my Psylocke shoot and  I couldnt help but shake my booty.…

Deviation deletion :

Mon Jul 23, 2012, 6:40 PM
Hi everyone!

I did upload a yoko image last night which got a lot of attention, I did not expect it too as none of my other work really has caught that much, especially hitting the front page.
I just wanted to say a couple of things, thanks for the support from all the lovely people who complimented the photo. I chose to delete it due to negative attention it was getting and in all honesty I have done better work that I thought I'd rather be known for. It was a personal choice but thought I'd leave a reason here. It wasn't post processed the best and I should have known better then to upload a picture Im not sure on.

Anyways! now that's cleared up!

I have a lot more cosplay plans coming up.
Im working on Bayonetta at the moment for EB expo in Sydney. Perhaps a Jill Valentine depending on time before the convention to plan.
Bayonetta is going to be challenging but I really want it to be my stand out costume for the year. I've started gathering for it and have 2 months to prep!

I've been meaning to make more youtube videos. But Im just so darn awkward. I dont know what to talk about and my words escape me D: If you have any suggestions for topics please leave them in the comments ^^

Thank you all!

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 25, 2012, 1:13 AM
Hi all!
Thought Id do an update since it's been a while!

I've been teaching myself adobe premiere and trying to make some videos, I haven't got too much on there at the moment but feel free to check out my Panty makeup tutorial!…

YAY finally reached 30 000 views, Im going to get more into cosplay asap and hopefully raise that number significantly.

Final Fantasy VIII and Competitions!

Tue Jan 31, 2012, 5:12 AM
Been a while since I've been on DA... Getting back into the cosplay making!
My list has gotten a little off what it should be though, all the costumes I want to make are ones I haven't planned really. Mainly Rinoa and Ultimecia from FF VIII
Im a biiiiiig fan of VIII, its my favourite game of all time. Enough so to have many playthroughs, emotional connections to characters and many a theory I have on it ( R = U anyone? )
Anyways considering Im replaying the game its setting my focus on my other cosplays off right now.
Thinking maybe I should cave and just make the costumes and leave my others a little later. Plus make my boyfriend a squall outfit!

Anyway Im feeling real crappy and disconnected from cosplay and looking my best lately.
I recently bleached my hair trying to go white. Now Im a light blonde, Im sure missing my red though!
Need to get in shape also, those full length mirrors make me die a little inside haha,

Anyways competition time!
Was thinking I was going to be lazy with this and just forget about it like I usually do but I really want to win anything this year!
So liking would be appreciated and sharing around.

Heres the link guys!…

Thank you all for Reading my silly little journal!

Visit me on facebook on…

Finally got there! So happy.

Can't wait to share more of my work with you in the new year and I hope to see many more dA viewage milestones~

So xmas is drawing near and so is complete brokeness, so I should be able to afford to fund  my 5 costumes I'll be doing up in the next month!

Other then those 5 shoots Im working on bigger projects for conventions. Battlesuit Jill Valentine for a res evil group in April and a Night Elf hunter costume the following day.

I'm also going into prep for a Bayonetta costume. I've been playing some lately and I just can't resist, she's too charming.

Anyway fellow deviants, What are you all doing for xmas?

New Cosplay plans for early January!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 6, 2011, 5:30 PM

It was unfortunate but due to work and other things my shoot this week with :iconjkdimagery: was delayed until after his trip to Japan. So over the next month until he gets back I decided to work on  cosplays so we can have an awesome spam shoot!

The 3 that are mid construction at the moment are Cammy White, Angel vs Panty and Psylocke. I've ordered wigs. Ill strive to do more but with april not being TOO far away I suppose I should start working on my bigger costume plans for then. The Res Evil 5 Jill Valentine and an official art Night Elf Hunter.

Thats about it for cosplay plans so far, anything else cosplay wise might have to wait for a faiiiir few months. ^^

P.S Excuse the capital for each word. I only realised after typing it's not me it's the Journal haha
