Don't try to ignore or drown out the emotions. It will leave you feeling even worse.
Hanging out with a good friend who can help keep you in check is a good idea
Also when I get depressed I dive head first in a project
Stuff I hope to do by the end of the year:
Prism - Original design: Done except for the bow
Akihito Kanbara (Idol) - Kyoukai no Kanata: Need to add details
Drag Cloud - Final Fantasy 7: Need dress, wig and braids
Bahamat - Fantasy 4: I need wig, and to make the wings
The Best Costume Ever - It's a surprise: All I need is the wig!
