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.

1.) How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    9 years.  Holy cannoli >_>

2.) What does your username mean?
    It is the name of my own business. <3

3.) Describe yourself in three words.
   
Procrastinator, loving, dedicated

4.) Are you left or right handed?
   
I'm a righty!

5.) What was your first deviation?
    Meh Lazy dog 1 by CrimsonStarEmporium

Of my dog....of course it was XD

6.) What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Fabric stuff and chainmaille.  2-D wise, though, I like to create using traditional mediums (like pencil mostly.  I have a tendency to screw up more in pen)

7.) If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Digital Art.  There is so many pretty things that can be done ;___; and there's Ctrl+Z

8.) What was your first favourite?
    Mizuyo by raino-sama
    Awww it was Alaina's drawing :D

9.) What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    At first it was a lot of anime/manga/video game stuff, now it's been fashion or abstract/surreal tendencies? ish?  I don't know.  I usually am drawn more to the macabre

10.) Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    nebezial and his other alias shiniez are my top but there are so many other ones too

11.) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    nebezial or NanoMortis  (such awesome work!)

12.) How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    Well, there are a few, but they are also my friends in real life so I'm not sure if that counts >__>;  I am not really that active on here so I haven't really made too many connections with other deviants I don't know irl....I'm a shut in online as I am in real life T_T

13.) What are your preferred tools to create art?
    ALL THE TOOOOOLLLLSSSS.  Seriously, though.  Rulers, pattern paper, pencil, Sewing Bible 1 (aka "Patternmaking for Fashion Design"), Sewing Bible 2 ("The Art of Draping"), Sewing Machine....needle...thread...fabric >__>; the list goes on

14.) What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    Uh.  Dining room?  Hopefully it will become the sewing room that we will get together by the end of the month....

15.) What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Probably any time someone favorites a work of mine, whether it was a photograph of a 3-D piece, or one of my traditional art pieces.  I don't get them often, so it's a nice little pick-me-up <3

F/W 2015/16

  • Listening to: Pandora
  • Watching: Sailor Moon Super S
  • Drinking: Water
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?

Crimson Star watercolor by CrimsonStarEmporium
Crimson Star watercolor
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

Abstract Watercolor by CrimsonStarEmporium
Abstract Watercolor
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-
