Updates! (aka sorry for my absence)

Updates! (aka sorry for my absence)

Hello everyone! So I have exciting news for this amazing new year! I have officially decided to start a Youtube channel featuring tutorials on costumes, makeup, and possibly even wigs. I would also love to start vlogging when I go to conventions, especially with Acen coming up in May. Although it may be the only convention I can attend this year, I think it will be a good start! 🙂 Because of the convention coming up however, I will try my best to post tutorials as I make my assortment of costumes, both to here, and to Youtube. You can find me on Youtube as (of course) TheJasmineKitten. No videos are up yet but I’ll try my best to get one out soon. Hopefully just an intro to start off and then some tutorials. Thank you to everyone who follows me on social media for your support and I look forward to being able to communicate more! Happy new year~

Anime Central! <3

I’m officially going to Anime Central in Rosemont, Illinois this year! I’m so happy to have the opportunity to go and I’m so grateful to my amazing friend Rae for asking me to room with her and some other friends. ❤ So far, I’m working on Roxy Lalonde, Fefetasprite, and Girl Morty. I am having some difficulties deciding what type of Roxy to do because the convention is in May and I’m worried about how hot it’ll be. I have a design I’m working on but it seems a little too plain so if anyone has any ideas I would very much appreciate it! ^x^ Thank you! ❤

Family Dinners and Tutorials

Family Dinners and Tutorials

This is going to be just a quick update because of my lack of posting. I haven’t been doing much this past week because I’ve been continuously ill. It’s just been a constant headache for over a week but it seems to be subsiding. On the bright side however, I have been able to get some things done! For example, Jake and I went to his house over the weekend to visit his family and attend a dinner which was very fun like always. Also, on Monday, I was able to swing by Jo Ann’s to get some fabric for a costume I’ve been wanting to make! So hopefully within a couple of weeks I’ll be posting a tutorial or two on what I’m making and they’ll be easy so that beginners can do them. ❤

Crafts and Coping <3

Crafts and Coping <3

Being at college can be very stressful at times as evident by many of the students that attend. So! I thought it would be fun to try to help myself get through that stress by crafting more and making clothing items and also plushies. I also thought it would be a really great idea to start posting sewing tutorials for the things that I make as I go along so that others can learn for free without having to but tons of fancy patterns. I’m also starting off each day now by writing something positive and putting it on a post-it note and then sticking it on the wall by my bed so that I’ll be motivated right away for the day.~ As for the plushie tutorials, as a reward for beating a video game I’ll be making an object from that game. For example, for Kingdom hearts I’ll make a paopu fruit. I would like to do this for short games as well and I just finished one recently so I’d like to start working on that shortly. I hope everything goes well! ❤

So lately I’ve had a lot of free time and haven’t had a lot to do so I’ve been trying to play more video games! I think it would be fun to get into another good game like I used to. I’ve always kind of liked the idea of being a gamer on Youtube but I can’t really see it. If anything, I think I would have a ton of fun being a vlogger and maybe I could play games on the channel every once and a while. However, this wouldn’t be for awhile 🙂 I would like to start vlogging once I’m able to travel a bit more.

My Future

My Future

As of right now I am seriously considering moving to England after I finish college and after Jacob gets his doctorate. In the beginning we were wanting to move to Colorado to start our lives there but it may be better in the long run if we were to move away. Not to mention I really enjoy the weather and the whole look of the U.K. As for the difference in Jacob’s and my salaries, I’m still researching. As far as I can tell, my salary as a teacher would be lower but the cost of living is also lower so that helps. I’m still looking into it all however but I think it might be a legitimate option. ❤

Midterms, Halloween, and Food

Midterms, Halloween, and Food

First off, I apologize for the late entry this week. It was midterms week so I had papers and multiple tests to take so I’ve been super busy. However, I finally got everything I need for my Halloween costume and I’m super excited about it. I’m being the bride of Frankenstein so I bought scar wax, green and white paint, fake nails (I can’t paint mine because of work), purple lipstick, tights with scars on them, neck bolts, white hair spray, and a tattered dress costume with a veil. I’ll be all dressed up this Saturday so I’ll be sure to post pictures on here and on Instagram. Also! I have been eating almost no meat at all so that is very exciting but I still eat in on occasion but not nearly as much as I did before. ❤
