Three years. Three Final Fantasy XIV cosplay builds. Each one taught me something new and helped me grow a bit more as a crafter. I'm not sure what 2019 will hold for me, or if I'll have the time for something new, but I look forward to the days when I start my next project. That said, I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with and wish all a happy new year!

I hesitated on doing the #bestnine because I had a good picture lay cooking but heck! That will be a new year surprise ;)
2018 was surprisingly good to me, met a lot of beautiful new people and had a ton of wholesome times with many friends that I would not trade for anything in the world. The latter half of 2018 was a taxing one because of my internship. While there are some problems I pretty much made up my mind on what I want to do in life. And that clarity gives me so much joy and pride.
In 2019 I want to get rid of my flickering attention span and really focus. Focus on my own projects and I don't mean cosplay with that. I want to really dig my teeth in making animations and strive to be the best person I can be, mentally, physically, emotionally and productively. It's been a passion for me that has been laying dormant but especially after my internship and regular fitness days, I feel I can push it forward in 2019.
That's not to say my fingers haven't been INCHING to get back into cosplay. I already have a lot of plans ready and I know I can achieve them. 2019 will be a year of creativity, variety and the self help that will enhance the former. I hope to see all your lovely faces next year, and I promise I will be even more of a better version of myself then I already am ❤️.
Since it hasn't really been shown yet, here's a look at the back of the Zenos cosplay! I had fun working with @tntcosplaysupply 's dowel rods to create the tubes on the butt armor, and thanks to @nikumonster for the suggestion to go even further with my cape weathering!
