WhimsicalSquidCo's Profile Picture
WhimsicalSquidCo
Jessica Brommit
Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
Canada
I'm a geek who loves to craft and cosplay (since 2007, more "seriously" since about 2011 and competing since 2012, and currently at Artisan level), and went to fashion school with a dream job of making gorgeous costumes for stage/screen for a living (or, happy cosplayers who want top-notch stuff). SO, Whimsical Squid Creations is here to show my business and hobby of nerdy crafting! This is my account for Artist Alley crafts, photos of commissions, and my cosplay photos both finished and in-progress. My other handle is ShinobiXikyu, though I never log in that dA account anymore, and same name with my Cosplay.com that I post most of my cosplay-related stuff on too (very actively! I prefer forums to facebook. If you want to see my daily musings, crafting help and opinions, check there). I should mention too, I'm an Aspie, formally diagnosed in 2004. Thanks obsessive tendencies, you make cosplaying and running my own crafty business the perfect thing for me!

Also, I took nine years of French (Canadian school system), am actively studying German and I'm fascinated by languages in general. Feel free to comment in your native language! Just don't be offended if I have to respond back in English or I conjugate my verbs badly.

(My cosplay.com, since the website bar now has my storenvy in it.:P www.cosplay.com/member/113158/ )
I have a facebook too for my crafting and announcing my Artist tables at upcoming conventions, but it's basically the same content as on here. www.facebook.com/Whimsical-Squ…

I'm also a geography nut, so I stuck this neat little "flag/country counter" in. Though it only goes up to 20 countries, and I'm definitely past that number, to my delight.

Donate

WhimsicalSquidCo has started a donation pool!
0 / 1,200
Help me keep my premium membership! Cosplay takes all my money and our exchange rate is horrible. :P

You must be logged in to donate.
No one has donated yet. Be the first!
 I hate to announce bad news on anyone, but this needs mentioning. I just found out that my father has stomach/esophageal cancer, which is well past the state of being curable. He's also more than halfway across the province from me. It's absolutely devastating news, and I have no idea what the next few months are going to entail as a result. I'll be trying to keep my work and convention plans going, but everything right now is subject to change as we don't yet know how long he has left and I'll need to travel a lot to visit and get affairs in order.
 I'll appreciate literally all offers of sympathy/hugs/etc., I don't even know what I'm going to do with myself right now.

Activity


At Genrecon for the weekend! Won't be able to do more than quick message checks til Sunday night.
Merry Xmas, Happy Hanukkah (According to Jewish friends, it hasn't started the same day as Xmas in a very long time!), and Happy Snoggletogg! I'll be home on the 2cnd so no photo uploads til then.
It's Fan Days Holiday Show and my birthday! Thanks everyone for birthday wishes, I'll try to respond through the day but it's a busy one.
 Lo and behold, I scored plain black minky fleece at my local fabric shop! Watch for new and improved Toothless cubes coming soon! And for the time being, my regular fleece Toothlesses will remain out of stock as said fabric shop is all out.
At Forest City Comicon all weekend! Review/updates resume Monday. Uuugh, 6 am wakeup...
Storenvy sale extended! Still have plenty left to move, and because the summer-long postal strike threat left a lot of people antsy about buying online, I'll keep the sale on for a while yet. 
I finally got around to editing my AN journal with my masquerade entry video! Only took three months... :P
Okay, I'm moved into the new apartment and set back up (and with internet) again. Hoping my new workshop setup works as well as my old one, and hopefully some new uploads will come again in the next week! August journal will be up on the 1st like usual.

My pleasure! And question, are you thinking of putting a print/book collection together of your strips sometime? I'd love to buy a physical collection.
