New Year’s Resolution 2017

Hey there! The new year has finally started and I hope you had an awesome start into 2017!

New year, new luck! … as I like to say. Normally, to have new luck, you are thinking about the past year(s) and try to think of new and better ways to survive the upcoming one. And what is a good way to do so? Exactly, New Year’s Resolutions!

Although I did not post resolutions for 2016, I really want to start doing so. I love cosplaying and sewing, so why not make a list only for cosplay-related resolutions?

The first things I want to mention do seem to be not related to cosplay at all. But they are, more or less, because it affects my time for working on costumes.

So 2017 is THE year! I will graduate from university in summer and I still need to write my bachelor thesis, so I obviously cannot work on costumes as much as I want. Too bad… But I really need to get this done properly. After graduating I want to find a good job and save up some money for a few things, including a new and better sewing machine and a nice camera. And I hope I can somehow accomplish that.

I also want to start going to the fitness center, at least once a week, to get in shape. Yes, this is a very crucial resolution! If I want to shoot a lot of things and especially wear Ladybug in spring or summer this year, I need to be ready. And I want to do that. For that purpose I even created the hashtag #roadtomiraculous, to motivate myself!

And now… moving on to directly cosplay – related resolutions.

… and a Happy New Year!

Although there were a lot of good things that happend in 2016, I’m glad that it finally ends. All in all this year was one of my worst years. Nevertheless I am happy about every experience I got – be it good or bad ones.

I have a few things planned for 2017 and I will write a New Year’s Resolution blogpost about this topic soon! If you’re interested in that: stay tuned! ❤

Until then: Stay sparkly!
