Breathe in. Breathe out. You've made it to the weekend. πŸŒ±πŸ’¨ . Beating the holiday stress and the SAD with exercise, friends, and a healthy dose of meditation. Speaking of which, I've discovered #PLAYNE , a meditation game on Steam, gonna boot it up tomorrow at 10am PST for some chill streaming vibes.

"Greetings, friend. What would you ask of your warchief?" 🌱🐺 . It's getting to be dark, cold, SAD season. (Seasonal Affective Disorder, that is.) So stay warm, stay dry, and stay MOTIVATED. Grey skys are merely a reminder that the sun has off-days too, but I assure you it's burning JUST. AS. BRIGHTLY. So get out there and shine in its absence. β˜€οΈ . . πŸ“· taken by the ever talented @trevorbeautty. We had a wicked shoot on Mt. Doug, where he captured this greeny in such great contrast. This was absolutely my favorite! . . . #cosplay #evafoamarmor #foamsmith #foamsmithing #foamprops Β #foamarmor #blizzard #blizzardcosplay #worldofwarcraft #wow #warcraft #bfa #battleforazeroth #thrall #cosplayer #cosplayersofinstagram #twitch Β #supportsmallstreamers #mindfulness #commmunity #wholesome #creativegrammer #canadiancreatives
Everyone else is doing these, so I figured why not! πŸ“ΈπŸŒ±πŸ’œ . This year has been full of change, of self exploration, and of foam dust. But damn, I wouldn't have it any other way. To those of you who have taken part in this journey, words cannot thank. I appreciate each and every one of you, and can't wait to see what kooky cosplay hijinks 2019 has in store!

Sylvanas, what have you done... 🌳πŸ”₯πŸ’€ . Hey @blizzard , if you're looking for a YA Thrall to star in the next #Warcaft flic detailing the origin stories of Thrall and Varian, let's talk. πŸ˜‰ . .

Home is where the hearthstone is! . In lieu of a #tbt , I want to know; if you could set a hearthstone anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Comment below! . . There are so many beautiful shots that were taken with @apertureindustries , I'm blessed to live in such a beautiful city like Victoria, BC. Full photoset up on Patreon, along with some other choice goodies! Link in bio. Any proceeds go towards furthering the production quality of my cosplay endeavours. πŸ’œ . . . πŸ“·: @apertureindustries #cosplay #evafoamarmor #foamsmith #foamsmithing #foamprops Β #foamarmor #blizzard #blizzardcosplay #worldofwarcraft #wow #warcraft #thrall #cosplayer #cosplayersofinstagram #twitch Β #supportsmallstreamers #mindfulness #commmunity #wholesome #photooftheday
β€œThe beginning of wisdom is the statement 'I do not know.'"Β -Thrall . I've been very absent from streaming lately, and besides being busy with jobs to pay the bills, I've been doing a lot of soul searching on myself, and how I fit into this rapidly changing world. A little healthy introspection is always good, friend-o's. Don't ever presume you know it all, for I assure you that you don't. But the horizon is always bright, always keep looking forward, and never stop learning. πŸ’œπŸŒ± . . On that note, a few of you have been commenting on the #PonderousPreludes and if those have disappeared. I've been cooking up something to that effect and I think it's gonna go over pretty well, #Patreon is gonna be chock-full quite soon!

"Elements guide me!" 🌩️🌱 . A big reason that I cosplay is the energy and inspiration I take from the characters I love. Because of his connection to nature and his devotion to empathy, Thrall is easily my favorite #Warcraft character! How about you? . . There's still time to get in on this month's round of signed prints and other goodies! #Patreon link in bio.

Today's #tbt takes us back to #capitalcitycomiccon , because #Magnus and #Angus (cosplay credit here to @craddockadock ) are just the two goodest boys. Even though my Magnus revamp is put on the backburner for now, I'm very excited to get started on my Chance Lance. #wip . . To all you Americans, have a happy Thanksgiving, appreciate your family in whatever forms they may take! It's 2018, family isn't just for blood relatives anymore. πŸ’œ . .

So, I hear you've been burning trees in my absence? πŸ”₯🌳🏹 . . Is #Sylvanas your #Warchief ? I'm torn. Believe me when I say I've got a lot of thoughts on the subject.

"Now THAT'S teamwork!" πŸ‘©β€πŸ”§πŸ’₯ . Brewing on some ideas for Thrall in December, being of the Frostwolves and all, I can't wait for some wintery shoots! .

It's not easy being green. 🌱🐸 . Today's #tbt goes all the way back to #Enzo /#Matrix , who I would consider the first cosplay I put any real effort into, and apparently my constant pursuit of an unrealistic skin tone. πŸ˜‚ I was so proud of the cardboard shoulder piece, a spray painted nerf gun, and that duct tape belt. Because friends, all art has to start somewhere, and most of it begins on a budget. Don't ever tell yourself you can't create based on the limitations of your surroundings. Just like good food, good art can come from anywhere. Believe in yourself, and stick your nose to the grindstone in pursuit of those #goals ! . Also thank those who help make your dreams possible, I know I wouldn't be where I am today without all of you. Keep on being awesome, and don't forget to breathe. πŸ’œ . . . #cosplay #evafoamarmor #foamsmith #foamsmithing #foamprops Β #foamarmor #blizzard #worldofwarcraft #wow #warcraft #thrall #cosplayer #cosplayers #cosplayersofinstagram #twitch #twitchaffiliate Β #supportsmallstreamers #mindfulness #commmunity #wholesome #twitchkittens @twitchkittens @gamers_and_cosplayers
A wild Starch appeared! 🌱 Hey fam! A lot has been going on since Blizzcon involving future projects and lining up convention appearances, and I've been in an out of social media. That being said I plan on streaming tonight at 7pm PST! Wanna get caught up on where I'm at? Watch me stomp with the new #Overwatch /#Heroesofthestorm characters? Come join the fun! . . Pictured above is Jorge from #HaloReach , my next big project with @skookumprops. So excited to be joining @405thinfantry as a Spartan of the #DeltaBattalion !

Incoming photospam of the solitary living ex-warchief, YA BOI THRALL. . Meeting people like @kinpatsucosplay , @shepherdcreations , @hdccosplay (not pictured together but check him OUT), all of the countless members of the #Blizzard community, just made this trip an INCREDIBLE experience. I still cannot thank @skookumprops and @hanamaru.photography enough for their help and support in the building process, as well as @andii.dawn and @cannon.16 for being just the best travel companions. Already stoked for #BlizzCon2019 , who's with me? . . . #cosplay #foamsmith #foamprops Β #blizzard #worldofwarcraft #wow #blizzcon #thrall #blizzcon2018 #cosplay #cosplayers #cosplayersofinstagram #twitch #twitchaffiliate #smallstreamer Β #supportsmallstreamers #mindfulness #guidedmeditation #commmunity #wholesome #twitchkittens @twitchkittens @gamers_and_cosplayers
