2014 Costume Reveal- Video!

Hello internetland!

I am happy to announce that today is the day I announce my new 2014 costume project :dummy:

Over the next few hours, I will be releasing hints to give you guys a chance to play the guessing game. Check back every two hours or so for another hint to be added (or follow me on Twitter) and the answer will be given at 6:00pm MST when I launch my newest YouTube video!


If you couldn't already tell what is is, now you get to find out for sure! Check out the video:

I hope you're as excited as I am! This costume project will debut this summer at A-kon, an anime convention in Dallas, Texas.

I have been waiting for you to ship my resin masks for TWO YEARS. You have ignored my emails, notes, comments, and tweets. I can SEE you being active on other sites. I have lost all of my patience and respect for you as an artist. I WANT MY MONEY BACK NOW!

I have been actively responding to you on Twitter promptly, but I have not been active here on DA for months. Only came on here to check the note you told me was sent by you to obtain your address. I'm also not the kind of person who hides comments on my page but I felt it was still necessary to respond here.

I have not been receiving emails reliably and it appears you are not the only one affected by this communication issue; so I am also in the process of setting up a new email service as we speak. I just cannot understand why it is continuously misbehaving and causing several of these stressful situations for me and my commissioners. I truly do deeply apologize for my online absence this past year from recent personal matters causing so much delay to all my work.

But I do believe after tonight's communications, the situation between us has been completely resolved. If you do not agree, please be more than welcome to present further information for us to discuss. Thanks!
