REVEAL! ヤッホー皆さん!
Hello, I am LifeAsAnArtist but you can call me Shimada, Shi, ShiShi, Yoyo etc. I love cosplay, I just think it's so niffty what my generation is doing on the internet, we're building a legacy guys...

Current Residence: カナダ
Well I'm currently a student which means expect sudden random bursts of cosplay then long months of me whining about school and studies. That's basically my life.
I love to travel, the world is such a cool place. That's something else I like about cosplay, it's international.
I've met so many amazing people through conventions and I've had so many awesome experiences. Talk to me, I love chattin up people on DA since we're all such ball'n people.
Also, I'm really not that subtle with faving and often I go on fav if you receive ten upon tens of notifications saying that I've faved you're pictures/art of entire gallery.... yeahsorryNOTsorry
I'm bad at these bio a question? You'll have to ask.
I hope we can be friends!


Hey guys

Finals are coming up and I’m writing my will (.__.)

Just wanted to say though I’ve made the solid decision to quit cosplaying.

I have a group for Sakura con that I’ve made a commitment to but after than I think I’m going to hang the super suit up. I might rewear shit or make gifs on my blog but idk, it’s kinda lost its sparkle for me.

Money is the main reason, and I guess it doesn’t really fit in my life as well as it used too. I also would like to focus more on my photography, if anything. I find I like taking other peoples photos a lot more(coughJennAlex) and thats maily because; less drama, less work, I;m actually good at it, and I can wear what’s comfortable. I also really don’t have a lot of time to go to conventions anymore. Spending time and money while I could be spending my time making money….Anyways, I won’t delete this account yet; I might upload some more pictures I took during AR and CE. Maybe I’ll just turn this into a photography account. IDK I’m rarely on here anyways and my membership expired. Welp.

If you wanna still chat (all you thousands of people I chat with) you can find me on tumblr

Or facebook: Sasha LifeAsAnArtist

Just let me know who you are so I can follow you back~

Have a good winter holidays
