Brumley has managed to touch on just about every fantasy theme in her work, but she recently announced a new project that's much more personal.

On Twitter she shared photos of her grandmother on her birthday, dressing up for her first experience doing cosplay and looking fan-freaking-tastic.

She writes, "Today is my Grandma's birthday & with that the first day of my personal project.This project is to create fantasy portraits of my loved ones starting with my Grandma. This was her very first photo shoot, thanks to patreon. You can see the full set here."

Brumley wrote on Instagram that she assembled her grandmother's costume from old pieces she's made, and is calling her character "Snow Queen Mother."

In another posts she added that her grandmother suffered a stroke, and lives with Brumley's parents.

Winter amongst the family is a bit quiet and sad, as it's a time marked by the memory of loss.

Brumley says that she realized she didn't have as many picture of loved ones as she wishes she did, including her grandfather, so including family members in her fantasy world is an important connection for her to make.

Though Brumley's grandmother looks very serious and majestic in her photo, Brumley still has a playful view of her real connection to her:

Brumley has a relatively small following on Twitter, but her pictures of her grandmother have been retweeted over ten thousand times. They're just that good.

Can't wait until the whole family gets their shoot!
