Here's an example of my crafted AA items. Lots of fleece and velvet, and either awesome regality or adorable cuteness.
Many of these items are available on my Storenvy! whimsicalsquidco.storenvy.com/
|Here's one of my many cosplay photos! Many more in my galleries, and along with more info and awards/masquerade video links on my construction processes, on my cosplay.com; www.cosplay.com/member/113158/…|
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.

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.
