- It takes heart - by Neverablueflame
- It takes heart -
Cue what may be my overly emotional response to anything that has to do with Kingdom Hearts. Let alone drawing.

So, I'm part of this Kingdom Hearts Art Collaboration. I get to make my own Keyblade wielder, the whole works. Well, this is her. She doesn't have a fancy name, just Yume. Her Keyblade is called Dream Chaser. I've always been the type to daydream with my head in the clouds. I have a back story for her that's too complicated to type up at this moment, maybe one day though right ? I came to this project with no sense of a reason to continue drawing. I've given it up before so why not again ? Recently I've been struggling with my mood disorder and depression, so I haven't been feeling quite myself. However, when I started this I remembered the reason I started drawing when I was kid to begin with. It was a way for me to cope with my overwhelming depression, an outlet to escape from a world that did nothing but hurt me.

I like to think she's like me. She's a dreamer. Like me, she has this overwhelming feeling of being crushed by everything around her, being overwhelmed to the point of breaking.  She has too many demons that chase her, and not enough light to chase them away. I would think being a Keyblade wielder would give her the light she needed to chase away the demons. A sense of purpose. A way to cope. A way to make friends.

I made a lot of friends because of Kingdom Hearts. I'm still making friends because of Kingdom Hearts. I'll probably continue to make friends because of Kingdom Hearts. I'm 23, and I still love this game as much as I did when I was 10 years old, discovering it for the first time. This game gave me characters that I could relate to. It made me feel better about being me. I'm glad I'm me. I'm glad this could give me my reason to continue drawing back again. So thank you for this. 

Also a huge shout out to my good friend Jasper for the idea to give her freckles ! She looks great with them !

...also, Yume means Dream.
So Sakura-con is in a few days and I'm getting excited. I'm putting together the last few parts of all of my cosplays then I will be ready to go. I'm extremely excited that Yuumei is going to have a table at the con cause it's always been a dream of mine to meet her. Speaking of Yuumei and her work, I'm hoping maybe this year I can find time to throw together of cosplay of Jen the Graffiti artist from Fisheye Placebo. I really adore here design and I think it would be fun to cosplay her this year if I get time. Plus you have to admit, her sweatshirt is pretty badass.

In the meantime though, I have a lot of cosplays for the Visual Kei band Vistlip planned. PV's included in this list at the moment are Strawberry Butterfly, - OZONE -, SINDRA, B, Sara, Edy, and EVE. I can feel my hands bleeding from sewing already and I haven't even started on - OZONE - yet. Oh well, all the work will be worth it. In the meantime tonight I will finish packing and preparing things for Sakura-con.

Line-up is as follows:

Day 1 - Umi (Vistlip's Artist PV)
Day 2 - Hashiyan (Matryoshka)
  • Mood: Cheerful
  • Listening to: Challenging the Empire | Final Fantasy XII OST
  • Reading: Fisheye Placebo
  • Watching: Law and Order: SVU
  • Playing: Persona 4
  • Eating: Nothing
  • Drinking: Water
