First and foremost, I will continue my weekly streaming tomorrow working on requests / commissions. I maybe finish a piece I started for a local friend, or start on one of my commissions of a crystal pony.
But on to something more important to me.
I had a pretty amazing and humbling experience Saturday morning. Not long ago, I joined a volunteer group of costumers in Atlanta. This group travels to various events, hospitals, and even house calls on occasion dressed up as characters to bring wonder and joy to children who may not be able to leave their home much, or even at all. This Saturday, I attended my first event with this group, the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation's annual Breakfast with Santa. Along with two other amazing costumers, I had an absolutely wonderful time walking around the event bringing smiles to the faces of children and parents alike. I also learned a lot about the disease itself, and for those of you who don't know a lot about it, I would urge you to read up on it. It wasn't easy at times as some of the children simply tugged at my heartstrings, but I couldn't help but have a huge smile on my face when I left because I knew that we were a surprise they certainly didn't expect.
And I am absolutely eager to attend more charity events in my costume, and spreading even more happiness whenever I can.
I also attended a photoshoot event for Momocon, a local convention (Growing like crazy and one of my favorite conventions). I would just tell you what I did, but I would rather let pictures speak for themselves <_<.
