Officially Changed my Live Painting Schedule to:
Saturdays & Wednesdays on Twitch.
If there are any artists out there that have fallen down, that are facing an artist's block like I had for about two years before... Having the input of human beeings while you create your art is an amazing thing. Consider live-Streaming your work.👼👼👼 Consider streaming, it's been so good for me and those around me. Imagine making a difference in peoples lives by sharing the art you already love to do <3 Please hit me up on www.twitch.tv/kaypikefashion with any questions or concerns. 👼👼👼 AS LONG as YOU are a decent person that doesn't take advantage of others, we have got your back. The entire channel👼👼👼 💜💜💜
I have also officially revamped all my deviant art to basically say "I'm painting in another castle" but am going to be posting my art regularly.

Subscribe to Twitch.tv/KayPikeFashion , Prizes and perks!

So this is my new thing now ^^ Cospaint, body painting. I've been invited to start streaming on twitch creative by the staff,  so feel free to join in the party anytime. I stream bodypainting Saturdays and Tuesdays and loads of digital art throughout the week. Photoshop, photo edits,  website graphics etc. I will be streaming cosplay stuff too once I sort out a place to put the camera! So come chat, ask questions, or lurk quietly. I'm here to entertain! Join me while I learn this new medium <3 www.twitch.tv/kaypikefashion

This is new too! www.patreon.com/KayPikeFashion I've always let work come before art. Let running the business come before all things, I would like to make a go of being able to take time from sewing for others and just make art!  Costumes, livestream videos, bodypaints, and delightfully entertaining contributions to the world. 
I am doing this all on a seperate budget however and can only do things on an "as can afford to basis"... Anyone thats ever tried streaming, or bodypainting, or cosplaying (let alone combining all these things together) has an idea about how these  arts are prohibitively expensive to start! If you like what I can do please think about becoming a patron!


Hey Guys! I'd like to invite you, and anyone you feel would be interested, to come and visit me at my booth ( I have a little company called CanadaCosplay.com canadacosplay.com/ )at Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo edmontonexpo.com/next weekend!

I'm going to be rooting around for Grab bags actually! I may have enough to bring. You know the drill Edmonton, hat prototypes etc, get them while they last! I also have a very small amoutn of dragons to bring so be happy I finally have some at a show!

~Kay Pike

Cyber Bullies Attack! Beware Con Artists!
I'm already giving them too much attention but some of you may have noticed mean people spreading rumors about me or Canada Cosplay on D.A. or other places on the internet. It's very unfair & boils down to alot of con artitists and jelousy! I Do Not tolerate rudness, negitivity or others advertising on my D.A. (as no one should) as this is a workplace for me. I will block people if they are harrasing me or my page viewers or are suspected con-artists. This often results in nasty journal entries, people spam messaging lovely people that watch me and general petty hate crime things.

Today in particular:
There seems to be a cyber-bully attacking us, amleonard703
Please ignore! If you want to see input from people who have actually bought and worn our items check out our gallery here: calgarycosplay.deviantart.com/…
And if you feel that might be a little too biased, please check out this video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZbfSb…
He shows the exact hat you posted about!

One thing you may have seen is other sites using CanadaCosplay.com Images and claiming they make our products and can sell them. NEVER trust buying from sites other then CanadaCosplay.com for our products! Real people have lost alot of money this way recently and it has been brought to my attention!
Another thing others will do to swindle you out of money is they will message you off of my D.A. page and say that they (someone other then Canada Cosplay) can make you the item or arrange the sale themselves. NEVER trust this. This has happened dozens of times over the years and is particularily bad over the holiday season.
Be a smart shopper & have a safe and wonderfull holiday season, best wishes.

Online Absence
For all ya`z that don`t know, I do this as my full time job. Convention season is in full blast so I rarely have time between stocking, and going to conventions to be online at all x.x So Contests take longer to respond to, I don`t have time for commissions etc.

The Next Hoodies?
I was Hoping to have my next run of hoodies ready by now x.x life has been happening too much lately! (the convention van's radiator, tires, hitch electronics, and breaks all needed to be replaced. Had to buy a trailor as we have too much stuff and no time for rentals. My old computer died after three good years of top of the line performance so had to build a new one. Had to order in massive orders for materials. Had to replace the mouldy sub-floor and flooring in my sewing room, my CAR needed new brakes too. Have to build a garage to store all the inventory as the house is exploded-no-more-room and get a gas line sleeved before hand.  Super big expenses all at once! life has been a female dog! AND was bed ridden and  un-able to work for three weeks after Saskatoon Blitz so I'm way behind)  Please stay tund

So ever buy a flat ear fox hat, see our awsome 3dfox hats and pout? People tell us this a dozen times a day at conventions, and we want to do somthing nice for all the people at choose to upgrade anyways.
I'm also bringing a new mystery hat that only those going to a taste of Athon will see for now ;)
We also have some nice blow-out prices on Yu-Gi-Oh cards ^^



Machinery Upgrade
We have a brand new industrial stright-stitch machine, surger and stright knife fabric cutter. Not only does this make your products of higher quality but we will be "out-of-stock" less often! Were also trying experimental things like transfers for things like faces to make products more uniform and consistant.




I'm pimpin some patterns. I really appreciate you guys participating in my polls. There will probably be a few more as I try to hammer out my ideas.
Lords do I have a cute one for you later.

I have been doing better lately... Still havent been online much but generally happier. Things are happening and I can start poking at designing again. I'm getting physio-therapy for my chronic back pain now too~



Birthday Party
That was a fun social experiment! Putting an open invitation online lol. :iconxtd3: was the only stranger brave enough for roller coasters and glow-mini-golf that day. Shoutout to :iconnigzblackman: and :iconjloucherrystar: and Proton Jon :iconprotonjonsa-fc: for braving the three hour drive up to edmonton just to be at my Partyish thing.
*Sends love*

Go check them out people, tell them they are awesome.

Explanation!
We are trying to learn what people like! Feel free to change any of our stock product's colours, faces, add decorations and you can even change the brim/tassel style as long as it is within reason as we see it.
You have to make your own line art, I do not have enough time to draw them all, you can trace the images tho~ Quality of drawing does not matter a fig.


I'll only be allowing entries to win that I (we) think can be made multiple times and kept in stock and sold on our website and at conventions.
ALSO! It means that the easier the design is to make, the less it will cost, the more likely it will be that others will buy it, and better the chances that it'll win ^^ Check out : canadacosplay.com/hatguide.php for more specific details on general hat pricing, and the commission gallery on the lower right corner of any page of our website for examples.


Rules!
1. All designs must be based on public domain ideas or owned by you to be valid for entry.

6. Brush your teeth!
7. No drama allowed. As it says in our FAQ/TOS: canadacosplay.com/faq.php , If you contact us and are aggressive, fussy, demanding, or otherwise unpleasent we will not be very interested in responding.

9. If you want to submit an entry (ie. a Black wolf hat) and someone else has already submitted something similar, go ahead, the winner between the two will be the wolf hat with the most views.

If anyone in Alberta would like the chance to get a Nyan Cat locally, or any of my new MYSTERY tba winter hats BEFORE CHRISTMAS (I do not ship during the holidays btw) please let Otafest Lite 2011</u> know.

Please ask for Canada Cosplay to be vendors here: www.otafest.com/forum/viewtopi… www.otafest.com/forum/viewtopi… www.otafest.com/forum/viewtopi… thin the forum thread. I would appreciate it :3



New Hats soon!
I have been wanting to expand my convention stock hat range for a while, but we are pretty much maxed out for display space as to what I can bring.. So.. I have to rotate a few designs out if I want to have some new ones for 2012. The Whale hat and The Axolotl are thus only going to be available for a limited time only. Get yours before they are gone!




Renovation Progress!

Judging
The more popular your design is the better (this dosent necessarily mean favs but it will help). I rarely make hats I can't sell more than once. Think about what hat would look the best to most people. Be realistic, if your hat is tricked out and costs $100 to make it won't be done. Try to remember the cost of a remake of your hat will be passed down to future customers and this will influence if we make it or not. Effort helps ALOT.

YuGiOH!
We are working hard to get our YuGiOh card Database set up on the site. We will price beat! We will beat the price of any in stock, same edition, same rarity advertized card for a single card plus shipping to Canada.

Mailing List

We added a mailing list to our site to help us contact you! So far we only have it set up to let you know when we re-stock a product or make a new stock-item, but it may help. I'm also going to update this journal with newly re-stocked things.

Custom Order Update
Having a staff of 1 artist and 1 manager, we do not have time to make everyones custom items! If you get a response that we are too busy it is not that your design is bad or that we do not want to do it! Please just wait a couple weeks and try again. There is no way possible way to deal with everyone's wants. I appreciate all your efforts!
Stock Items Update
I run out of stock like lightning. I only have the physical capacity of making 30 odd hats a day! Please be patient while I try to restock our site items. I added a "poke" button to our site, that will allow you to "poke" me if we are out of an item that you would like to order and I can try and move it up the re-stocking que.





A Baby Mouse

As a few of my older watchers may remember my cat (who was as old as me) died last summer. I have been going through serious pet withdrawl since and my family has felt alot smaller. Recently I did some research on pets and I decided I wanted a mouse. I have had mice before but they seemed more like pets then family members, so I decided to raise one by hand from a baby fuzzy! Here is a video of my mouse!
Yay I'm getting even less sleep and less work done then normal but I'm so happy!


I challenge anyone in Calgary to a race!
Swim races! You Vs.Me at the Northland Village Leisure Centre. Tuesdays nights! Im there 7-10ish. If you can beat me in a race I'll give you a shark hat I'm designing..heehee

Anyone that wasn't a watcher last year may not know this, but I have Seasonal Affective Disorder. S.A.D. seriously. From mid-November to january ish I have no enerjy, have wayyyy imbalanced hormones and am generally really really depressed. I take very very few comissions as I can get out of bed only half of the time *dies*. So don't hate me, I hate myself alot the time right now due to S.A.D.
ANYAYS I get really bored really quickly........
I don't like doing remakes of ancient things.  I like doing remakes/colorations of my newer things fine enough. Like I'll make unicorn hoodie colorations untill the cows come home. I just plain get bored.
I try to stock old favourites.. But really I'm unoffically letting everyone know that if you want a new custom item you are way more likely to have it made then a remake :)

Extortion

One of my random acts of kindness backfried on me recently. I tried to promote someones work for free and they decided it was their right to be promoted and not a curtosy.

To keep feelings from getting hurt I'm going to tell the story of what happend in an analogy.

So once upon a time a "bully" took a mythologial creature (lets say for this example a griffon) and coloured it. They made their own griffon deisgn, good for them. Later someone made a (lets say for example) a Fursuit of this coloured griffon. Okay so this thing has gone through 2 irrierations. Later on this fursuit griffon was submitted to somthing that made it public domain. Lets say for example that it had a photo published in a magazine, or somthing that made it widly publically available and viewable. However this magazine has clauses that make their photos legally public use so poeple viewing the magazine can do what they like with the images. (I know choppy example but basically it belongs to whoever buys the image in the magazine now)

A "Client" who owns this magazine, decides they like the griffon fursuit. They like it so much THEY MAKE THEIR OWN VERSION of the griffon. They colour it basically the same but they change the main distinguishing features, the horns and face etc. They made their own griffon. Yay good for them, they did nothing wrong.

The "Client" was so happy with their version of the griffon they brought THEIR OWN MADE IMAGES to me and asked for a hoodie made. I made it and they love it. I like it too and display it.

Later on I try to figure out what the "griffon" is (I was just calling it a "monster" lets say) and someone helped me find the "bullies" griffon. Huzahh! I know what the thing I just spent days designing and making is. I contact the "bully" to promote them as my clients design was similar to theirs and I wanted to show what species of thing I made was. The "bully" gave me permission to include them in my description. The bully is having free advertising from my popular hoodie! They are fully aware that this is a commissionable item. A year passes. My watchers go from 500-8000.

Out of no where the "bully" contacts me, and tells me that I must give them more free advertising for using their griffon or they revoke their permission. They do this in a horrible aggressive way. This is definable extortion When I explain that I actually used a picture my client produced of, my clients version of, a version of their griffon they submitted to somthing that made it for public use, they decide that that their design overrules any future griffons on similar colouring ever made. They also claim to have invented griffons and never heard of other extremly similar with near exact colouring griffons before they made their version.

The "bully" then tries to get all their friends to bandwagon against me. They start spamming my things and make new accounts to get around blocks.

So basically I'm getting abused for trying to help promote this person. My linking to them gave them the idea that it was their right to be linked to and they owned part of my 3d textile design.

First of all, I would never try to pressure anyone into giving me free advertising. I don't care if your buying one of my things, wearing it in a multi-million-dollar cosplay compitition or trying to copy my patterns (you know who you are) How you express yourself using my things is your rights and your business. #1, I would never have the right to tell you what to do with my things, #2, It's morally wrong to try to enforce my opinions on your expressions.

Second, If someone ever drops me a kind word or advertises for me I count that as a frilling blessing. I don't expect it, I certianally would never try to bully you or extort you. I would never try to convince all my watchers and friends to start harassing you if you decided not to advertise for me.

Third, I would never behave aggressive or abusive toward anyone for using public domain things. This situation would be like if I went and harassed everyone that ever made a fox hat, because my fox hat is so special and anyone making fox hats from now on needs to credit me.

This "bully" person is beeing unfair trying to pressure me into giving them money or advertising by revoking the "permission" they gave me.
I'm starting to report any abusive people that just join on the hate wagon without trying to figure out what actually happened. So their will be alot of things hidden on other deviations (as apparently they will just start ripping on any and all of my designs) I apologise.
I know its a decent and kind thing to do to promote others and give people recognition, but this is not somthing I care to extend to someone that behaves abusivly and/or aggressivly.
In the end, if they had contacted me and were like, "I changed my mind and I'm not comfortable with this anymore" like a decent person I would have tried to find ways to make them feel better. But they were super aggressive, trying to use their e-clout to pressure and bully me into getting more out of me. I have known too many hurt people to respond well to internet bullies.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read what is going on in my world. I feel very attacked and lonely. If you see any way out of line aggression on my pages please report them.

"that bully is a total jerk. i'd bring up the fact that griffons are mythical creatures read about in lore, mostly medieval . So HE should give credit to ALL THE AUTHORS that had the idea centuries before him. Proof is in ANY public library or google search the history on griffons.
Oh teh noes. he had his with different coloring. Like that's original.
As much has some people hate it, almost every fursona has been done before.
Blue fox. done. Red griffon. done. green tentacle thing that you insist is NOT cuthulu. done. purple cat. done. orange mouse. freaking done.
(insert color here) (insert animal here) DONE.

little jerk should be grateful you contacted him in the first damn place when the design of the client was only similar, NOT THE SAME therefore NOT his.
add jewelry, rave sticks, random stripes, spots, big eyes, big ears, a tongue thatll wrap around a city block. DONE."

I would like to appologize to everyone for that last contest beeing a cluster-frack.
But I now know that I shouldn't overcomplicate the entry process, that I only want to do grey area hats and that Deviant Art has major major size restrictions on journals.
I'm already planning the next one and I promise it will be better, and end quicker as I am making products again!

In the meantime I would like to invite anyone in Alberta to Otafest Lite Thats on November 13th at the university of Calgary. I am one of the vendors and anyone that has gone to cons that I attend will know about all the special products and deals available at conventions only.

Currently I am making stock for this con so be prepared to see many new products soon and available @ Calgary Cosplay dot com!





Some interesting stuff, as few of you may know I refurbish and vend arcade machines and I am selling off some of my older cabs. I am also selling some manga and paintings. So if anyone is interested in arcade machines, art or manga IRL take a look at My Kijiji serious inquiries only plz...

Oh and incase anyone is confused I have various domain names for our online store:
www.CalgaryCosplay.com
www.CosplayCalgary.com
www.CanadaCosplay.com
www.CosplayCanada.com

Also, if anyone in calgary plays yugioh or ddr and wants to arrange to hang out lemme know!
