Should I post up my design sketches to share when I get flashes of inspiration for unique clothing, not just costumes? 

3 deviants said Yes, I'd love to see (and maybe commission) your ideas
1 deviant said Yes, but don't overwhelm your gallery with them
No deviants said No, that's not what I follow you for

WhimsicalSquidCo's Profile Picture
Jessica Brommit
Artist | Student | Artisan Crafts
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. My "random" account is under ShinobiXikyu, though I basically never log in that one anymore, and same name with my handle that I post most cosplay-related stuff on (very actively! I prefer forums to facebook), and this is my overall "business" account offshoot. 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, since the website bar now has my storenvy in it.:P )
I have a facebook now for my crafting, but it's basically the same content as on here.… (it's a business page, not personal. I do NOT want a personal facebook page.)

I'm 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.

WhimsicalSquidCo has started a donation pool!

Help me keep my premium membership after June! Cosplay takes all my money. :P

You must be logged in to donate.
No one has donated yet. Be the first!
 It's now been a year since my Facebook and Storenvy have been up, and there's been so much growing in the last year in every way that I need to move some old stock so I can have storage space again! So until Labour Day, almost half off of selected items in my online store!  Get them while they're still available, I'll be discontinuing most of these when they're sold out/out of materials.
  • Listening to: Nothing
  • Reading: Nothing

  • Playing: Skyrim (HOLY CRAP I'M HOOKED)
  • Eating: Pizza
  • Drinking: Water


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.
Happy Canada Day! My monthly update journal goes up tomorrow.
Away til early next week visiting the parents. I'll still log in to check messages but I won't have anything to upload.
Bookwyrm bookmarks now available on my Storenvy! Likewise, if you want a custom colour, feel free to send me a PM and we can work out a price and shipping cost.
Away again for new-apartment things until Thursday afternoon, so my monthly update will be a day or two late.
It's Anime North! So no updates til Monday.
Updates resume Monday! At Ad-Astra this weekend. 
Updates resume Monday while I sell my nerdy wares at March Toronto ComicCon this weekend!
Thanks to Jacky the Nerd for giving me a cosplay interview for his blog! In two parts here.……
 And to celebrate, my Toothless cube plushies are now available on my Storenvy!

You're welcome! I've actually liked your cosplays and seen you at cons for a while now, I just didn't find out your cosplay name until pretty recently!
the-mirror-melts Featured By Owner May 5, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Cool. If you see me around just come and say hi. I'm usually at a the masquerade or running panels at Canadian events :)
WhimsicalSquidCo Featured By Owner May 5, 2016  Student Artisan Crafter
Are you judging the Anime North masquerade this year? It'll be my first time competing in it but definitely not my first masquerade ever, I just never found it worth the extra time, or had won an award at a smaller one already, to bother with AN's til this year :P. I'm also totally lost on what division to enter in since I've never won at an ICG-level masquerade but I just moved up to artisan at the regional/small con level... lol, I might just have to go up to the registration desk in the costume and go "So uh, what do you suggest?" :P

Thanks for adding Compare yourself to your favorites. I'm glad you like my writing :)
WhimsicalSquidCo Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2016  Student Artisan Crafter
Mostly I favorited it for the illustration, because it's so true, but yes, the writing is also very true. I'm a seamstress/crafter, not a visual artist, but I sure as hell get the same problem looking at others' work.
