Please bare with me guise! ;^^ It's not as much to read as it looks! ><
I have decided to change my name for all my stuff. Why?
Because I didn't want to keep using what was originally a gamer tag with no real reason behind it. I really enjoy cosplay and when I share it with people I'd like for it to be as me, with my actual name. So if I'm going to go by anything might as well be my name, right?
Wolfie Rose was just a gamer tag I made up because I liked the name Wolfie but that of course was taken already. So I just threw something to the end of it which was Rose (and mostly because roses where sitting in front of me). But even that gets taken like everywhere ;-; And I really don't like having 0's in my name ><
So I'm changing all but a few sites (DA, Storenvy, Cosplay.com~only because I either can't or it costs to change the url) from Wolfie/W0lfie Rose to Arlena Fae.
~No Fae isn't my real last name (it'd be totally cool if it was though!), but I decided I didn't want just Arlena and I'd prefer not to use my real last name as much as possible. So I improvised something, and that something happens to be my favorite word ever! Fae :) Now it has a couple different meaning, like in French it means confidence, trust or belief... but I picked it because it also means fairy or fairy-like or is a word for a fairy-like creature. Basically it deals with mystical and fantasy stuff so it's perfect! Plus fairies are small and I am short (and an old nick-name of mine was Pixie, so hey, close enough).
So this means I'm changing my watermarks on all my photo. But I'll leave whatever I have up as is. I'll just be bulk changing stuff, like the albums here, on Facebook and DeviantArt, and of course any future stuff will be changes as well.
It may be a bit of work but I'm never going to change my username stuff again, I promise, so it's okay! I'd just much rather use my real name on everything rather than a gamer tag, especially one that's not and has never been a nickname ;-; It's too strange for me (no offense to anyone who does so, it's just not my thing!).
So bare with me. Once this is all out of the way and Facebook has finally done the name change (may take a couple days ;-; ) I'll have that give away for my prints up and open up my shop :) I'll be ordering a couple more prints and do another small give away shortly after that as a "Sorry I pulled a stereotype and was an indecisive woman but using my actual name makes me much happier, because the gamer tag just bugged me so much because I have OCD or some shit when it comes to this apparently, but thank you so much for sticking through even though you probably don't give two bumblebees anyways, but here let me throw some prints at your face and it'll make everything all better okay? Okay. I love you!" (Now read that ~what's in the quotes~ as fast as possible and it'd be exactly like I said it in my head --I should've taken out the spaces xD ).
I figured it's best to get it done sooner than later though. And before I sell any prints so that if I sign any it'll be with my name and the name I shall forever go by in the cosplaying world! :D
Okay, I love you guise! Thanks so much for the 300 likes on my facebook page. That's so much! ;^^ (At least to me it is >< ). And thanks for sticking through all my girly-confusing-ness.
~Positive outcomes only! :)
