Somehow, some way, it’s that time again!
It seemed just yesterday (okay it was late December) that I was doing my 2000 follower giveaway. And yet, here we are, celebrating with another milestone. And how do I like celebrating my followers? Giving away things that help cosplayers :)
As I prepared my latest giveaway, my good friend isaisanisa reached an incredible 10,000 Followers! And her lovely girlfriend, caffeinatedqueer, just reached 5,000! Since we’re all friends in the real world (and make quite a Hellish family in the cosplay world ;D), we decided to band together and do a giveaway for ALL of our followers to celebrate these momentous milestones!
What you can win:
There are THREE prize groups. You will pick ONE!
This is the machine I started with almost ten years ago. I made all of my early costumes with it and it still works! It’s an extra I keep around for sewing parties or leather work when I need a non-computerized machine. Great for a costumer just starting out!
This is good for beginners, too! But veteran cosplayers will appreciate the travel-size of this machine. It’s great to bring along for cons for those quick hotel repairs so you don’t have to risk damaging your main machine just to have the security of knowing you can fix a costume on the go. And the sewing basket is great for taking your supplies to-go, too.
3.) $80 Worth of Sewing Supplies
Scissors, seam-rippers, pins, presser foots, organizers, tape measures or thread… if you’re not feeling one of the above prizes, you can pick out whatever loot you want pertaining to sewing or crafting. If it’s $80 combined or below and ships on Amazon Prime, it’s yours! There won’t be a whole lot of restriction on what’s allowed, just as long as it’s crafty and in the price range!
- Likes and Reblogs are both okie dokie! Only one each per person, though! A lot of people’s dashes were flooded when I allowed more than that so we’re keeping it 1/1 this time. One like, one reblog.
- You don’t need to be following any or all of us, but if you are, you’ll get a cosplay promo on my blog and probably an extra gift. I’m sure Isa will promo you, too!
- No giveaway blogs, I check. Side-blogs/fandom blogs/cosplay blogs are a-okay, just no prize-only blogs!
- Ask Box must be open. You must be okay with sending me your address. I’m no creeper and you can contact my past winners. I indeed deliver on my giveaways, no scams here! :)
- International Shipping: I can only go where Amazon goes on these items. If Amazon can’t get it to you without charging an arm and a leg, I can order from another site that will as long as the price is comparable. Some items are available on AmazonGlobal, so it shouldn’t be an issue.
Giveaway ends on March 13th, 2014 at 6:00PM EST (winner announced later that night). Please blog responsibly and GOOD LUCK!

This might be my favorite song out of the fandom
Phileo has been insanely busy with… Life. For the past several months. He gave me the go ahead to let people know what’s going on, as he doesn’t have a tumblr himself.
I have good news for fans of “The Way She Flies”- it looks like new projects are finally in the works!! He has two new songs, titled, “Wild” and “For the Republic” which are nearly completely written. All that’s left is to iron out a few of the lyrics and then to record!
UNFORTUNATELY for you, Phileo is the most meticulous of perfectionists. Which is why The Way She Flies took so long to create (but is as awesome as it is!). So while he IS working on these new projects, he ain’t doing it quickly.
FORTUNATELY for you, he has help this time. And both his best friend (shout out to Garnika, my absolute favorite DJ) and his girlfriend (that’s me, hello!) are really pushing to help him get this done in time to debut at least one song LIVE at the next Club Luna!
More info on that to follow. (We’re hoping for May, but don’t quote me on that) In my personal opinion, Wild will probably come out before For the Republic. Both because the former is closer to completion and because the latter is a very, very complex song. The end result is going to be ABSOLUTELY amazing (and this is coming from a Celestia cosplayer. HAIL THE SOLAR EMPIRE butdayumsonthatsongisincredible), but will probably take longer to pull off.
