I've finished (finally T_T) my degree in Fashion Design through Mount Mary University. My travel abroad trip to Florence was AMAZING. There are so many stories to tell! I think one of the highlights, though, was getting to see distant relatives that still live in Costacciaro and be with them for a weekend. It was a special moment I wouldn't have had a chance otherwise <3
Currently, though, I am pursuing my certificate in Entrepreneurship as one last step before I can concentrate more on my business. Once finished with this certificate, I will have more of the tools I need to succeed as a business, and my teacher has extended help to any one of us for as long as he is alive (which is pretty damn spiffy).

Once I'm finished with my certificate (now that I have the fashion degree), I hope to one day have my own business selling cosplay, steampunk and lolita clothing. I also want to accommodate any other commissions for outfits such as theatre for local schools, alternative wedding, and create my own brand of clothing. Look forward to it!

Current Residence: My parent's house because I'm poor :D
Favourite genre of music: Depends on my mood. Usually anything other than rap and country
Favourite photographer: My uncle and my brother
Favourite style of art: Again, depends on my mood. I like things like Anime, abstract, dark/moody, surrealism, fashion illustration, etc
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Shell of choice: .50 calibur <33
Wallpaper of choice: None? D: Wallpaper sucks...it's hard to take off
Skin of choice: Smooth?
Favourite cartoon character: ALL THE CHARACTERS
Personal Quote: Death is only the awakening of the soul.

I apologize for the fact that I've been missing here on dA for so long.  There has been a lot of change going on the last few months that has kept me busy.  Aside from battling many bouts of depression and anxiety, I've transitioned from two part time jobs to one full time job and one part time job, averaging about 50 hours a week or so.  Goal is to pay off the school loans by next year October ish.  

In the mean time, I've been using my two days off a week to pattern my 6 piece collection I hope to have finished by this fall.  I'm not sure if I will (it's taking longer to pattern than expected) but I can definitely try!  Hopefully by August I'll have some nice pics for you guys.

What do you feel is lacking, clothing wise, in the Steampunk community?

Actually the first one I did before the abstract.  Needed inspiration, so started with the inspiration for my logo which is the Crimson Star Flower

5" x 7" 119 lb watercolor paper
Watercolors used were solid pods activated by water

I had an itch to do something 2-d art related.  This was a result.  Wooooo abstract

I have decided I need more time and need to be less stressed before I do art again. x__x;  -no self confidence-

As some of you have noticed, there are some changes going on with my dA.

Loooooonnnng time ago, I used to brand everything with "SeikoMiwarui" because that was my alternative persona, but, as I move forward with my life, it is time to change.  Rather than give up my tenure to start a new account (idk why...I'm strange like that), I just decided to buck up and get a premium account.  I really wanted "AlizarinCrimson" but someone had it...sooo....CrimsonStarEmporium it is!

Eventually I want to learn how to make a template for a journal for myself but...that will have to wait >>;  One thing at a time.

Some other new exciting things is that I am currently hosting a giveaway on my facebook page >>> www.facebook.com/CrimsonStarEm…  you should go check it out <3


Since it has been quite some time, I shall also let you guys know what's been up.
1.) I'm officially graduated from Mount Mary University.
2.) I also have a certificate in Entrepreneurship from NWTC
3.) I'll be vending at KitsuneKon in March (hoping for NoBrandCon as well, but waiting to hear back sometime next month)
4.) I received a button maker for Christmas so look for buttons coming to my shop soon
5.) I'm sure there's more, but I'm honestly all over the place today and I can't stay coherent on one thing XD

I hope to get out some drawings and fun things again soon (but working 2 jobs, trying to do school full time - although that's finish - doesn't help.  I worked like 58 hours last week and this week x___x)
