Anonymous asked: I think you are very rude to your anons. Even if the question is phrased ever so nicely, you go off at them for not saying please and thank you? I'm asking politely, is English your first language?

Hahaha. Oh man. I was just waiting for somebody to call me out on being rude to my anons. I was waiting for it.

Maybe it’s because English isn’t my first language - I’m from Germany - but I don’t consider a question or sentence politely phrased if it doesn’t contain a “please” or “thank you”.

You know, all the anons I "went off at" were people who wanted explicit information about a costume, a technique, how I made something or where I bought something. I have nothing against people asking me questions, I even invite them to do so. But If I, personally, would like to obtain explicit information from somebody else, I’d never phrase a request without the word “please”. It’s a simple as that.

You say that I’m very rude to my anons. Therefore I assume that you went through my blog and read all the message I published in the past days
Consequently I also assume that you read the post in which I said that I put long hours of research and work into my costumes and my hobby.

Therefore, Anon, I’d kindly ask you to understand that I’m:
a) a nice and helpful person,
b) but not willing to give away information I worked hard for if you are not even able to phrase a polite request. Seriously. What happened to terms like “PLEASE” or “THANK YOU”?

If you would like to go on calling me rude, because I hold this opinion then please, go ahead. Feel free to do so. :)

Anonymous asked: You've probably been asked this before, but why did you pick your URL?

Hahaha. Yes. People have asked that question before. And everybody assumes that my nickname is extremely special and meaninful to me.

Guess what, it isn’t. I picked that nickname about 8 years ago when I wanted to create an account on deviantArt. All other nicknames I used at that time were taken already, so I had to come up with something else. I ended up with “Aigue-Marine” which is French and means “aquamarine”. But really, it didn’t mean anything to me. It was not even my favourite colour.

Anonymous asked: your english is perfect! did you learn it in school or did you spend one year abroad?

Oh, thank you very much, Anon! :)

I started learning English when I was 12 years old. I took classes in school for about 8 years. After finishing high school I lived in London for 2 months, went to language school and did an internship. Besides that I read a lot of books and watch a lot of movies in English, but that’s it. :)

Anonymous asked: I'm really hoping you live in the UK for this question. I've recently started getting back into archery a bit, and in the future am looking to get a bow, specifically a horse bow, like yours (which is very nice by the way), or very similar bow type. I was wondering where you got yours from?

Aah! Sorry, dear Anon! I’m not from the UK. I live in Germany. :)

I’m trying to help you nonetheless! I bought my horse bow (thank you for the compliment, by the way! ;)) at a renaissance fair in Neuburg, Germany. The seller was from Hungary as far as I know, but he gave me a business card when I bought my bow.
If you are still intersted in buying a bow feel free to contact me with your nickname and I’ll send you a link to his website and all contact information you need! Please don’t be shy, Anon! I don’t bite! :)

Anonymous asked: Where do you work? do you enjoy it? :)

At the moment I am working at a German merchandise shop which sells poster, shirts and other stuff every geek loves and would like to have.
It’s a cool place, I can identify with the company and the products. However, it’s only (one of my) part-time job(s). I am currently looking for a fulltime job in PR, projectmanagement and/or marketing.

A personal and non-cosplay post for once. Feel free to skip and ignore this if you are not interested.
Okay. I started going to the gym in early March and I have been spending approximately 2 hours about 3-5 times a week there. At first I didn’t notice anything, but after a couple of months had passed I had to admit that my body was indeed changing. It’s absolutely fascinating and I am very proud of myself. I feel so much healthier and stronger now. And besides that I feel much better in my own skin. 
I have never been chubby or anything. I am not training to lose weight. I am not dieting. I have always paid attention to balanced nutrition and I eat as much as I want. Nonetheless I lost 11cm around the waist since March. I buy my pants and tops about 2 sizes smaller now.One of my New Years Resolutions was to do more sports to live a healthier life. I am so happy my friend kicked my butt and took me to the gym with her. I feel accomplished!

GUYS, GUYS…

My thesis is finished and printed. The document is uploaded into the library system. All that’s left to do is putting the dissertation into my supervisor’s hands and to bringing back these tons of books to the library.

I’M FREE!! :D
