I so enjoy reading your stories, looking at your anime pics,
and vicariously enjoying your deviled eggs.
  -- Nilufar Tofighi

I love anime, cosplay, K-pop, and glam makeup. Grams asked if I'd like to do new page, in addition to my home page, sharing photos of me and some of my favorite memories over these past six years. Would I? Of course I would. So I'm posting a set of pictures every month in 2019. I hope you enjoy them. You can email me about this page at Mya@earthstarworks.com. I would love to hear from you.

I continued to experiment with my tools of glam and cosplay throughout 2015.

Here, I decided to go for a pink look. At the time, I always edited my photos like this, making the edits and background match the makeup color or theme I was going for. All good artists have phases, right? When I began Kaneki Ken of Tokyo Ghoul, I wanted to do a bloody look. With some knowledge on how to make a cut look real, I used sfx makeup left over from my Fem Joker cosplay I realized my Kaneki wig wasn't canon (didn't look like it did in the anime). So I began to scissor the bangs, using a Kaneki photo. It's the first wig I ever cut and styled solo, and I was super proud of myself.

I don't have to be going to a convention to work with makeup. Sometimes, I just try out looks for fun, such as these stitches, illusion, & glam makeups.

On my birthday, I started work on Homicidal Liu, an alternate-universe version of the Liu Woods character from the 2011 CREEPYPASTA story Jeff the Killer. If you have the time, read his story ... along with all the other CreepyPastas out there. Doing some more experimentation with illusion makeup, I wanted those viewing this photo to be over-whelmed by a humongous toothy grin! (Those are definitely some crazy sharp teeth, don't you think?) Say cheese! Or say cheetah print! I'd bought a makeup kit with paint & stencils to create the pattern. Gave it a try. This is when I started to experiment with more glam stuff. I even attempted a winged eyeliner; & looking at it now, I'm so glad I've improved!

Over July 4th weekend, 2015, I returned to the Stephens Convention Center at Rosemont's Hyatt Regency O'Hare for Anime Midwest. Over 10,000 of my closest friends joined me for anime screenings, artist room, cosplay masquerade contest, date auction, dealers room, fan panels, formal dance, guest autographs, karaoke, Maid Cafe, rave dances, video game tournaments, workshops, & the ConSweet (convention suite) with free ramen noodles, rice, oatmeal, & soda. Sometimes, I again cosplayed my female Grell Sutcliff (Gureru Satokurifu) of Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji). I also debuted a new-for-me character, a female Joker of Batman et al infamy. 'Cuz you know the meme: "In a world of Harley Quinns, be a Duela Dent." Not that my Joker is either.

This time, Grell gives a little love to Sebastian Michaelis (Sebastian Mikaerisu), the Black Butler. Shhhh, don't tell my fiance Claude Faustus. After a lot of work, my colorful female Joker (acid-whie face, red lips, green hair, & all) makes her first appearance at a con! And makes friends with informant Izaya Orihara (Orihara Izaya) - aka Kanra, Chrome, & Nakura - of Durarara!!

In May of 2015, I again attended ACen (Anime Central) in the Stephens Convention Center at Rosemont's Hyatt Regency O'Hare. There were over 30,000 people there, nearly 1,500 more than the year before ... not that I could actually tell. I once again cosplayed as a female - but way more formal - Grell Sutcliff (Gureru Satokurifu), a Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) Grim Reaper & a transwoman who's still biologically male. At least this time, my wig was styled!

Here I am, in full regalia, with Nagisa Hazuki (left) & Rei Ryugazaki (middle), two guys from the swimming anime series Free! The cosplayers were just so cute, especially with that funny little Nagisa doll Rei is holding. This is me mugging for the camera while meeting two of my cosplay icons: Panda (middle) & Lux (right). Don't you just love all that red, red hair. And they were so cool. This was the beginning for me of a friendship with Lux. And me making a big, honking deal of proposing to Claude Faustus (Kurodo Fosutasu), aka the demon "Spider Butler" of the Trancy household in Black Butler. Whadaya mean, did he say yes? Who could say no to me?

Hello, Nilu!
   Thank you for enjoying my stories and photos!! I am glad you are able to get updated thanks to the email reminders from Grams. I can't wait to hear what you think of my future posts!
Mya
  Lucki responds to Nilufar:
Hi, Nilu!
   Cool of you to email directly to Mya here at Earthstar Works. Most people don't realize she has a mailbox on the website itself, so they pass messages through me, either here or at the personal e-address I use for the reminders.
   Speaking of which, you're welcome about those announcements. Enough people mention liking them that I consider it worth the time to continue doing them. And I've found that most readers prefer them monthly rather than every time something is posted somewhere on the site. I'm not sure why that is (probably 'cuz they get scads of emails and appreciate that I don't clutter up their mailbox every day), but I'm OK with it.
   Keep enjoying Mya's photos and stories here and on Mya's Page, and especially those deviled eggs.
Khoda hafez,
Lucki

In Spring of 2015, I went on a school field trip to my first ever C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo), which was held at McCormick Place. There were over 70,000 people there! I cosplayed as a casual Grell Sutcliff (Gureru Satokurifu), one of the Grim Reapers from the Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) series.

Here I am with a bunch of superheroes. Plus Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid holding her fish friend Flounder (who didn't need to panic with all those superheroes around him). See the two photobombers behind us? He's Magneto (Max Eisen-hardt) from X-Men. When Grams saw this pic, she said, "Hangin' with the bad boyz, huh? That's my #grandMya." And I said, "Yep." LOL Grabbed some Starbucks with a Ghostbusters crew. Plus one of my classmates, dressed as a cat, who was pawing at my coffee. But I fended her off 'cuz, you know, need all the caffeine possible to survive the day.

Here are three more photos from my first con at Anime Central, cosplaying as Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!

My favorite set of "gotta love 'em" twins: Hikaru (elder; right) & Kaoru Hitachiin from Ouran High School Host Club. The cosplayers are not real twins, but that's OK. The cutest swimmers around, from the sports anime about swimming: Free! The character in black is Aiichiro Nitori, the one in white is Nagisa Hazuki. Another tall cosplayer: Mad scientist Franken Stein from Soul Eater, with scythe weapon & a screw through his head that he spins to reset himself 'cuz he's crazy.

I started cosplaying in 2014, & this was my first convention. It was Anime Central, in the Donald E. Stephen Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. I was cosplaying as Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!! I always thought I had to pose serious in this character. It felt fun to be at my first con ever. But my wig was actually a mess and, OMG, crazy. I do look back now & wish I would have styled it better. But we all start out somewhere, & to see how I cosplay now is even better. That first con opened a doorway to new friends & more fun cons!!

With Deidara from Naruto. Look at that foot. With Cheshire from Young Justice. That's one cool cat. Hey look! Someone cosplaying the same character as me!!
