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.

As it's Easter, my April updates will go up tomorrow! And don't worry, photos of all my new merch soon too!
Bit late for the day, but, I'm at Genrecon for the weekend! Checking my page will be sporadic at best til Sunday night.
Vending at Fan Days for today, and it's my birthday tomorrow! So, aside from checking messages once or twice a day I won't be around much 'til Monday!
Happy N7 Day! As a reminder, I make these for sale! ;)Mass Effect N7 Wall Hanging by WhimsicalSquidCo
Happy Halloween! Next upload will be my monthly journal, tomorrow.
Sorry it's been so quiet, but plenty of updates will finally come after this weekend up at the Steampunk festival! (And sadder news, the Toronto cosplay picnic was called off for this year due to multiple problems. Damn. I guess Miss Gloria Mabel Dominion gets her picnic in 2018...)
Happy Sesquicentennial/150th Canada Day! Posting resumes tomorrow.
Off to Anime North! Next upload will be my convention review on Monday afternoon/evening.

I spent it in my pyjamas, playing videogames, and then stuffing my face with Italian food and cheesecake. Yep!
