Also, for those of you who care to look, there are some more pictures of my Sailor Moon cosplay here!

Lots to get done @___@;

I've returned from DC~ It was quite an adventure (笑) The drive down was a bit tumultuous, but we made it in one piece!

I'm sure I'll post lots of pictures later, but for now, I just have a few to post~ ♪

East vs. West tonight! I'm excited, seeing as West is where I'm homesick for, and it's an excuse to dress up after a week of being sick! It's weird, but while I'm sick, I barely have the energy to put on eyeliner, and I know I'm better when I want to look pretty again. So I guess I'm better! ♥ That being said, my nose is still runny and I'm still a little dizzy on and off. But mostly better!

Katsucon is coming up so soon @____@ It's really stressful. We're leaving two weeks from today, and we still have so much to get done. Luckily, most of the wigs have been styled except for Magical Unicorn Princess's, and we're helping [livejournal.com profile] moonlightlady14 do the collars tomorrow. I keep meaning to post the Hotaro wig tutorial... I promise I'll get on that soon, [livejournal.com profile] hyoutan! Please don't stress, you know I love you! ♥

While I was sick, I was pondering how NyQuill is a higher alcohol proof than some commercial alcoholic beverages... so taking NyQuill is akin to taking shots. XD;;;; You can tell how well my brain was functioning when I was sick. I'm so cool.

Hm. I feel as if I had more to say. Kime pictures will, again, be up when I have the time. Between internal Study Abroad apps, Temple's apps, Internships, and grants on top of actual school work, I'm a bit swamped, and [livejournal.com profile] lion_crest eats most of my free time. Alas.
faded_lace: (Kime: serious)
I don't know how I got this sick this fast, but I feel gross. I should sleep...

Jazz ensemble audition on Thursday was... interesting. But I got in, so I suppose I should be happy. I'm withholding statement until rehearsals start.

Submitted both my Art Major declaration and my Dance Independent Major proposal... hope all goes well. I'll submit my internal Study Abroad application as soon as my major declaration goes through and my Temple one ASAP. I have to wait for my signature thing to go through so that I can sign the online documents, write one more essay, and get my internal form signed... but I should be able to submit by the beginning of February. Here's to hoping.

Did a Kime shoot yesterday in the dark, and got 15 good shots out of it. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moonlightlady14 for photographing for me. My wig looks really blonde because of the weird lighting, but other than that, I think they came out well. I'll post them as soon as I can think straight again...

Now to get stuff done before sleeping... @____@
faded_lace: (Kime: thoughtful)
Finally back at Bryn Mawr, and woah, hello thar stress! I already have a list of things that I need to get done before classes start, not to mention once we add homework to the mixture. And lol 日本語が全部わすれました... @____@

However, I meant to post a progress picture of Kime before and never did, so here it is! It's a god awful picture of me; I'm ugly AND unphotogenic as it is, and then add in the fact that my makeup makes me face look strangely white in pictures recently for unknown reasons and you get one freaking attractive picture. >___>;;; But... ignore my ugly face and look at the costume, yes? I just need the wig now, and then I'll take some real, non-scary pictures.

Cosplay! )

Also, I got to see [livejournal.com profile] hyoutan for the first time in forever! She's finally back from Australia/Japan (and by the way, I'm sick with envy, you. >___>) and we hung out and drank and talked about fandom and watched videos, and it was generally enjoyable. Also, she is to be worshipped, because she got me...


Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] hyoutan. I worship the ground you walk on now. ♥ My baby and my baby!OTP shall light up my life every time I look at them.

Hmm... sleepy. Bedtime, I suppose...

[EDIT] I'm possibly more amused than I should be that the third comment on Nagayan's most recent post is asking for a two-person photo of him and Tuti... XD;;;

Also, I fscking want this really badly.

In other news, I have everything for Kimeru besides the fedora, the tie, and the wig, and I hope to get the tie and fedora tomorrow with [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou! I also need the shirt altered, but [livejournal.com profile] chiachiaamichan's mom is amazing and will sew bias tape for me and I love her. ♥

So, yesterday, while Christmas shopping, I bought the black skinny jeans for the Kime cosplay. I found a good fedora and a pair of boots, too, so then all I need is the pink tie and the shirt to alter, and, of course, the wig. I really need to check to see if we're doing the Sailor Moon cosplay all three days of Katsucon or just Saturday and Sunday, since it would be a hassle to get into it after driving there. I'd like to do Kimeru then, since the costume would be comfortable enough to travel in and I could just put on the wig when we got there.

If this is the case, is there anyone else going to Katsucon who'd do actors with me on Friday? [livejournal.com profile] onewhomust, [livejournal.com profile] genicheerios, I'm mostly asking you?

Off to work on more Pillar Pair~
faded_lace: (Default)
I FINISHED PSYCH. FUCK YEAH. Here's to hoping I didn't fail... @____@;;;

My entire studying experience has been to the dulcet tones of Kimeru (and as I result, I now have Koishite Kimeru stuck in my head...) I feel like I shouldn't have done that, but I guess he's easy to study to. XD; I tried NEWS, but I kept getting distracted, and listening to Hyoutei B made my ears hurt >___>; So... more Kime it is. XD;

Relatedly, I was thinking of cosplaying Kimeru for a con sometime in the near future. Would anyone be interested in cosplaying an actor with me? I'd love a Nagayan or Yanagi, but anyone from first cast or who Kime's been known to hang around with would be great (lol Daisuke with his gross facial hair?). I know [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou has mentioned maybe wanting to, and I'm fairly certain most people on my flist who cosplay with think I'm a crazy person, but maybe [livejournal.com profile] genicheerios, [livejournal.com profile] onewhomust, I'm kind of looking at you. XD; Or anyone who goes to the same cons as me. I just really wanna do it, even for half a day, and it would be more fun with more friends :D

For reference, I'm thinking of doing this here outfit, so... it doesn't really have any affect on what anyone else wears. XD;;; Just... because I think it would be fairly easy to do. ^^;;; And I have to find a mullet wig... >>;;; But on the bright side, my Kimeru's arm impressions are amazing. XD;

...on that note, off to study Japanese.

So, for the Sunday of Otakon, we cosplayed Ouran High School Host Club, and here are the pictures from the gathering on Sunday afternoon~ There were a lot of different cosplays there, and it was a big gathering, so sorry for the picspam. ^^;

Ouran High School Host Club gathering~ )

And then there was cake, but I can't find the pictures on my photobucket account because I have so fucking many otakon pictures, so I apologize for that. Please check [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan's lj for more pictures!

Well! This is epically late, but there you go. I'm honestly really dragging my feet on this... so I don't have much to say but please enjoy my annual Otakon con report! It's crappy this year because I was rushing to get it done because it's super late and so please don't think ill of my captioning abilities... I promise I can do better and have done better in previous years ;

And yes, my lj-cut text is really lame this year but I totally can't think of anything else. XD;

omaera Inner Harbour ni giri-giri )

That's all for now! Sometime later will come out two shoots, but for now I'm really tired and this is a really crappy post... sorry!! TT_____TT;; Hope you can bring yourself to read it anyway...
faded_lace: (squee!)
So, here's the other (much more extensive) photoshoot that we did at [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou's house! We frolicked a bit at the tennis courts and took some other miscellaneous shots! Again, all the shots are taken by [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan! So... please enjoy, because I know we did!

So, for the first time ever, we managed to get a photoshoot in before Otakon! It's a miracle, I know. But today, [livejournal.com profile] chiachiaamichan, [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou, and I met with [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan to get some photos done! [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan is an amazing photographer and has a really nice camera, so we were able to get some nice shots! We frolicked around in Prince of Tennis first, because there's a tennis court right by [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou's house, and then we took some pictures in her back yard, too. After that, [livejournal.com profile] chiachiaamichan and I hopped into Noa and Mokuba and did some shots in [livejournal.com profile] yomimashou's house and in her yard. We've never used her yard before, but it was really great for taking pictures! So I think we're all really happy with the results.

Also for the first time, I actually photoshopped these pictures before posting them, so there's a result that I'm happy with. Usually, since we do our shoots during and after Otakon, I'm way too tired to do anything besides just post and make a con report. Since I had the time and energy this time, I've made the lighting and colours a little nicer and things, so I'm actually rather happy with the result. Of course, most of the credit goes to [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan's photography, but I did I little editing~

Um, I'm going to post the two shoots in two different posts, because there's a crap ton of pictures. [livejournal.com profile] redkittychan took over 300 and then weeded quite a few out, and then I got even pickier for this, but there's still quite a few. So first I'll post the Yuugiou shoot (even though we did it second) because there's fewer pictures, then I'll post the Prince of Tennis shoot.

I am a human and not a machine. )

That's all, because this wasn't even supposed to be a real shoot. XD;; We just wanted to pull the costumes together and stuff. But... as always, we got a little carried away. XD;

And, of course, for reference:

Happy Easter, for all y'all who celebrate that and whatnot. Me, I celebrated by watching Advancement Match Rokakku with [livejournal.com profile] britkit27. I'm going out to sushi in a bit, and then I think we're going to watch Absolute King Rikkai First Service and maybe DoRai 4th next... we'll see how far we get. Advancement Match was... more Hyoutei than Rokakku, I think. XD;;; Which is fine with me, really... I mean. ATOBE IN THE SHOWER SCENE. That right there makes the musical. Also Date is still there. Also Ruito is adorable and makes little hearts with his hands at Saitou during Season. So yeah. XD;;; A good watch, all in all.

Also, I got lots of good stuff for Easter! I got a bunch of candy and goodies from my aunt, and my family got me candy as well, and new slippers and socks and this AMAZING shirt from Delia's that says "Out is the new in" and I love it to death. ♥♥♥

Now, onto the stuff anyone really cares about... the photos and youtube link for Hare Hare Yukai! Please watch our performance here!

And here are some more posed photos that I didn't take at 1 am in the dark... )

Man, it's so nice out today. I wish we could have played tennis...

Today was the Freshman Talent Show, and, for those of you who didn't know, [livejournal.com profile] britkit27, Tiina, and I performed "Hare Hare Yukai" from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. There are three filmed versions of it, and when they get on YouTube, I will post the links here, but for now, here are some quick self-photos of myself in the costume made by the lovely Tiina.

I was supposed to be Yuki, but since I didn't have a wig, I didn't bother with being IC... )

Also, I can't decide if "Maria Holic," the thing we're watching in anime club now, is offensive or amusing... err, it's kind of in the Katy Perry sort of way, actually. XD;

Uhh... This was done completely and entirely because I was bored and I felt like it.

Actually, that's not 100% true. I wanted to practice binding and make sure everything still fit (since last time I wore the costume, it was '04, lolol). Everything did indeed still fit (obviously), though the shirt is a bit short since I bought it five and a half years ago and short stuff was in back then... oh well. The vest isn't entirely accurate, either, since it's made of fleece and not like, poofy stuff, but I was working on a budget. Don't tell anyone. XD;

As for binding, it definitely helped, but not entirely, and it was a bit tough to breathe. Still, I think I can get flatter if I practice more and get it tighter, especially if I have help. And it isn't so bad in the Mokuba costume, the vest kind of covers it... For Hakkai, hopefully it will make the shirt fit better ;; I'm thinking of sewing myself into it this year, or having someone sew me into it... because the way that it's cut is a ridiculous hassle.

Well, not like anyone cares about any of this, anyway XD;;; So, uh. Here are the photos :D;;

Mokuba shoot! )

For some reason, my camera takes really crappy pictures recently. Like, pixelated and with some random white noise sometimes. So, uh. Someone else should bring their camera to Otakon, because srsly. This is beginning to annoy me.

And, for the record, my hair doesn't always look like that. I teased it up a little bit for the pictures, and I'm planning on teasing it some more for the actual cosplay, because Mokuba's hair is filled with wtf. But my hair irl is not so crazy. XD;;

I still need to make the necklace, but I think me and V are going to do that together sometime or something? And I need to put the buttons on the collar because accuracy is full of yay. And find some gay sneakers. XD;;; But yeah this costume is so easy I feel like it's a crime or something. XD;

ALSO. Icon is semi relevant?!
faded_lace: (lol)
So, for NYAF, [livejournal.com profile] wearenotaskitz, [livejournal.com profile] storm_of_62, and I cosplayed Katsuragi, Kubota, and Tokitoh from Minekura's Araiso Private High School Executive Comittee! After the con, as per usual, we did two photoshoots! It wasn't the best nor to most intricate cosplay ever, but whatever! We had fun and were gay!

One word of warning: I apologize in advance, my camera was on super slow shutter setting, and a lot of them got blurry. I tried to fix them a bit in photoshop but... only so much you can do. すみません!!

Also, of course, BL [girls cosplaying it XD] and stuff inside.

And now, without further ado:

Anyone and everyone are forbidden from interfering with their activities! )

Hope you enjoyed! XD

Dance Party was super fun last night. Wish I could have stayed longer, but it's probably better that I left when I did... When I got back, I could barely breathe, and when I got up this morning, I couldn't talk because I was so hoarse from yelling XD;; Still, it was awesomely fun... I hope they have another soon!

Finished my paper on Plato and Lord of the Flies... Now I just have to look over and edit it... I think it's pretty all right, though, if a little redundant. Then again, the professor said that it was better to be redundant than to lose the reader, so. Yay. I'm basically done.

Now, to memorize me some Japanese... Got an email from Koike-sensei that said we had to know all the katakana by tuesday. -_____-;;; She closed it with "Katakana is fun!" though, which was about the cutest thing ever, so I'm not so angry... XD;;; I still hope the thing with Kobayashi-sensei [who will from here forward be referred to as "Kobasen"... because I'm too much of a geek not to XD] wasn't graded... -___-;; I made such a fool of myself. Funny that she's from Hockessin, too, though... haha.

Have to buy tickets tomorrow for NYAF... Cosplay's going to be awesome though!

...so not looking forward to ballet ensemble tomorrow morning. That dance is like an acid trip or something...

Have been listening to the new Minekura music nonstop... lulz.
faded_lace: (Default)
So, like everyone else, I, too, will post photos from my new dorm room. It's really quite nice and spacious, if you can forgive the bunked beds... -____-;; Anyway, if anyone cares to see, here it is.

dorm room )

It looks cleaner now than it did when I took the photos...

In other news, everything is all set up with my classes and I'm signed up to work in Erdman, though I'll get my hours later. Things are finally settling down... We need more fans though... ugh.

I got V's package in the mail today, and the armbands look beautiful! I think I may try to throw on Tokitoh again later and take a few more pictures. We'll see.

[EDIT] By the way, here is whiteboard!Niles, in case anyone cares. )
