A New Start

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 24, 2014, 1:02 AM
Hello everyone! 

During my hiatus I did some thinking about what cosplay means to me & if I wanted to continue doing it. 
For the past few months I've felt resentment towards cosplay & I came to a point where I thought I was going to quit. 
After thinking about why I wanted to quit, 
I realized my issues weren't with cosplay but with the people I was involved with through cosplay. 

I've since done a HUGE purge, as result of said purge I've changed my screen name from Saiaphi to my real name, 
Mitchal Verley! 
Obviously I'm sad to see saiaphi go, that username was a huge part of my self discovery and gave me a shield to keep safe behind, however, I'm ready to just be myself now. 

As hinted above, I have decided to continue cosplaying, however, I will now be doing it on a whole different level than what I was before. 
As you might have noticed I've deleted all of my old photos...
I want to bring up my craftsmanship and over all presentation to TOP NOTCHE. 
I want to deliver to you guys artwork that can accurately tell a story, I want to cause emotions. 
(There'll be the odd shot here and there that won't be over the top artsy, as some characters I plan on cosplaying are just normal school kids, ect.) BUT I THINK YOU GET MY DRIFT!? ;) 


On that note I have a few exciting updates! 
-I'll be moving closer to the city in 5 days from now! 
-At the end of July I will be starting at Blanche Macdonald for their Global Makeup program! 
-I've gotten a ton of new photography gear to level up the photos I upload from here on out!
-After I'm settled in my new place I'll be uploading youtube videos weekly! (Tutorials, Vlogs, YOU NAME IT!) 

Thank you all for reading this and sticking with me!

I'll be at NWFF this weekend for Friday & Saturday. 
Friday I'll be cosplaying Haruka from FREE! & on Saturday I will be cosplaying Alibaba from Magi!

Hopefully I'll see some familiar faces there! 

___________


P.S. 
I decided to start my FB page over from scratch as changing the name on my previous one became far to much of a hassle. 
Please feel free to give it a like if your interested in my WIP photos & behind the scenes stuff!

So, I happened to find some old cosplay videos with you in them a while ago on youtube. I just wanted to say that I enjoyed them very much, and I'm so happy I found you on deviantart! Please keep doing what you're doing, and don't let anything hold you back. :heart:
