#bestnine2017 showing off my four new cosplays for 2017 in Elastigirl, Barbie, Kim Possible (with appearance of @actordougjones t-rexing with me), and the 13th Doctor. Plus showing the love for Cruella de Vil and the 12th Doctor!
2017 was a big year for me. It started off in the worst way possible with me semi voluntarily becoming homeless, crashing on friend's sofa for half the year. My job also became a big point of stress and took a huge toll on my own mental wellbeing. So I quit. No job and no home.
It got better slowly. I found an amazing job in the plumbing industry, with more pay and benefits too! After a few months working there I lucked out in unicorn of an apartment that I could afford on my own! The first time in my adult life that I've been able to live without roommates! The best part is the fact that I have a room now specifically for cosplay and sewing! Just need to work on getting it organized enough to use.
Although not featured in my best nine this year was also had a big first for me. I started modelling professionally. I auditioned to be apart of Denver Fashion Weekend in the spring and walked my first runway. From there I ended up walking in Denver Fashion Weekend's new summer show, the Historia Hair and Fashion Show, and then finally the Denver Fashion Weekend Winter show as well. I've met so many new people in the industry. It's amazing what you can learn from watching professional designers, stylists, and make-up artist work.
I can't help but thank everyone who offered help and support through this past year. I can't imagine where I would be without you all. Let's hope that 2018 will be even better.
