Lodi This photo is dedicated to all the cosplayers and photographers who have encouraged me, been very kind to me, and inspired me these past few years. If I could, I would create a costume as a tribute to each of you and give you each a set of photos as Ska Beam had done for me, but, alas, that is impossible for me!

  • photino101 When to the sessions of sweet silent thought I summon up remembrance of things past, I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought, And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste: Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow, For precious friends hid in death's dateless night, And weep afresh love's long since cancell'd woe, And moan the expense of many a vanish'd sight: Then can I grieve at grievances foregone, And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan, Which I new pay as if not paid before. But if the while I think on thee, dear friend, All losses are restored and sorrows end. - Shakespeare 16 years ago
  • Demri I just read your e-mail as well and I too was a little stunned and, of course, very sad. You're just such a bright, vibrant person who's full of beauty and talent. I wish you the best with whatever path you take in life. Thank you for being so kind, supportive, and encouraging to me, and for sharing your gift for cosplay with all of us! We'll all miss you very much! ::hugs:: 16 years ago
  • kiwi_lady Omg ;_; ... my heart just DROPPED when i read the PM... You have no idea how sad I feel right now... You must have a good reason to why you are leaving, but just know this, whenever you feel like coming back, the door will always be opened to you, and i would welcome you right back. I wish we would've gotten know each other better, you were such an amazing cosplayer, and were one of my cosplay heroes when i started xD; ... It seems like everyone is leaving nowadays.. well i hope whatever you pursue in future will be in your favor, and whatever you do, remember the supports you have from all of us who you thought so nicely of. Thank you so much maple, for leaving such kind memory for me, and for others, and many, many , MAAANY hearts from me xD! i'll miss you SOO much T_T 16 years ago
  • AmazonMandy I have to just agree with Edea completely. I'm so saddened by this. I know you have your reasons, but if i could hug you right now...i just wish i could. I hope you have such an happy life, you deserve it. ;.; 16 years ago
